True this! I think another part of the problem is that people tend to overthink the ESTJs they know, by putting ulterior motives onto them when really they were being direct and up-front the whole time -- or they just don't understand where ESTJ certainty comes from, i.e. the need to deal with the information in front of them and operate with what's available, to avoid being paralyzed by too many variables. They don't understand how easy it is to convince ESTJs of things, compared with types that are actually more rigid than ESTJs even though they don't come across that way (cough INFJs cough).
What??? Noo!!!! I'm feeling a misunderstood INFJ now. (If you could only see I'm rigid because I'm right... ) But after recovering from the shock I can gladly say I've only had absolute fondness for the wonderful straightforwardness of the ESTJs I've met IRL. They're so...direct and...effective..and fair too. .

I like Fi doms. I think if mutual initial acceptance is reached and integrity of character established then it's a cake party of fluffy INF niceness.

Ne annoying???? No way! Ne doms are :uni:!!! Even the evil ones (read: ENTP). (...You know it's true, just admit it. Doesn't mean I don't like you. )
The only type I have had problems with IRL and am ambivalent about are ESTPs because of the different way we perceive things. I don't know if the conclusions derived are always flattering on either side. It's complicated.
I don't really hate any type. I can get along with anyone, and I can hate anyone. You're all equally likely to earn my respect or hatred.
That being said, the type that I have the fewest positive experiences with is probably ISFJ. I don't dislike them, I have just had the most trouble getting along with them in the past. Though new experiences with them may change this, of course.
