    Well I mean, I know I have met a lot of them; I just don't know any of them well, and so I can't get a good "feel" for them or identify any specific people who I am sure are the type. Unless my grandma is ESFJ. I really couldn't say.

    No, this is what they think I do.

    Quite so.

    ESTPs are charming and awesome, and scary...

    Sometimes opposites attract.

    I only have experience with one ENTP friend. We were quite intrigued with each other initially because we were so different and there was lots to learn and be entertained by. There was lots and lots of fun and laughter. Then, after a while, we started getting on each others nerves because of our differences. Neither of us truly understood the other and inevitably had large gaps in our value systems. I will say that we communicated with a surprising degree of ease, we never miscommunicated, which is shocking. I think that had we'd been more than friends, we could have bridged our gaps, but alas we were not, so we didn't.

    My opposite is the ESTP. They're intriguing.

    ESTP's are interesting, and somewhat charming. Overall fun to hang out with- I have a lot of xSTP friends. They pull me out of my own head. I need that sometimes, especially when I've been huffing the NiTi gas alone in my room for too long.

    Not going to put in a vote, as none of the options are really reflective of my thoughts. ESFJ's and I tend to get along just fine socially. I'm very easygoing, and they usually have a healthy respect for goodwill and "get-along-ness" that allows things to work out just fine.

    However... I've also run up against some pretty major worldview and communication issues when it comes to more involved friendships, professional relationships, etc. If I had to guess, I'd say that my boss (who I've known for 10+ years) is an ESFJ. He's very friendly and socially outgoing, but neither of us can ever really seem to see where the other is coming from (I'm right, of course ). Our priorities are so vastly different (mine is largely efficiency and "let's get this boring stuff done so we can focus on the interesting stuff", his is more about pleasing management and self-promotion - ihmo) that we butt heads frequently.

    My (twin) sister is also an ESFJ. We don't see each other all that often anymore, but when we do, we get along fine, with no conflicts, etc. It's just that our lives and perspectives are so vastly different that we seldom have a lot in common, save family topics and past events and people from when we were growing up. We enjoy spending time together, but there are a lot of forced topics and silent "uh, now what?" sorts of pauses in conversation.

    So, I'd say "like, but often can't connect very well with". I'm sure that there are exceptions, of course. It's just that I'm more likely to naturally connect with folks with whom I share more traits.

    Worse case scenario is I dislike their love for stirring the pot of drama and generally I find them hard to trust. Best case scenario they are warm, heartfelt people who make it easy to talk. I've met both types of ENFJs.

    The INFPs I like, are the ones who I have excellent Ne banter with, and who are completely on the same Fi wavelength as me. The ones who I admire for their free spirit, their creativity, and their principles.

    The INFPs I don't like are the ones who spend so much time wallowing in their uniqueness complex, that they forget how to communicate with people, how to be a good citizen, and how to be a good friend.
    (I've encountered this with SFPs, too, and it is beyond frustrating, especially when I end up having to babysit them in social situations. Those types of friends are draining and toxic.)
