    I would suspect that ESTJs would be worse about it, considering Si.

    That sounds like the opposite of "too nice".

    Yeah, most of the time when I hear stuff like that, I wonder what sort of "not nice" those girls are looking for.

    Haha no no, most of the time I'm very nice. I'm just saying that occasionally I might let my feelings get the best of me in terms of interpersonal relations, and in those times, I'm usually passive-aggressive. But this happens like 5% of the time. Still, 5% is too much lol.

    My initial question was about the other 95%.

    What one ESTJ stereotype makes you fuming mad?

    What kind of humor do you appreciate the most?

    I don't know if any of them make me fuming mad. I've seen them all, at this point. I guess the stupid ones -- like that they can't think critically. Type isn't related to critical thinking ability IME.

    My friends could probably answer that better than me. My instinct is to say the clever kind -- more on the "a-ha" side of humor, than the "ha-ha" side. Kind of dark, kind of dry. I like the Coen Brothers and similar movies ("Bernie" is a recent favorite), but I'm not the biggest fan of mainstream comedy films (a la Judd Apatow).

    Sophomoric humor usually doesn't do much for me (although I really liked "The Aristocrats"), and I really hate awkward humor. I often have to get up and leave the room during awkward movie/TV scenes.

    and it's nice enough to
    make a man
    weep, but I don't
    weep, do
    you?

    My question -- which is for other ESTJs, people who are close to ESTJs, and perhaps also ENTJs -- relates to the below quote from my blog:

    So, how DO you deal with emotional buildup? How do you talk to people about it when you're in that kind of isolated and crazy/distorted/desperate inferior-Fi mental space?

    The best ESTJ that I know is my father, and he never lets me see that part of himself, and he will take that to the grave. It's mostly because I am his child and there are certain ways he sees he must parent and doesn't want his flaws to be seen by me which for years really upset me, but what can you do?

    What I know about him in those regards has been from asking others. Even then, those close to him have never really given examples of him seeking aid with emotional build up. He has always been profoundly secretive surrounding his emotions, which is ironic given his expressiveness and outspoken nature. His wife might have seen/helped, but she'd be as tight lipped as him and wouldn't broach the subject. I have noticed that if he goes through a frustrating experience, he'll recount it to those he knows well. Not so much to seek advice, but to explain it and ultimately hear someone say "you're right" or "that sucks".

    I suspect this is a broad ST problem. Feeling overwhelms objectivity which then warps our senses. Kind of like when I get sick of waiting for pasta to boil and then a giant mound of foam ASPLODES out from underneath the lid. It's like a starchy volcano until it cools down, whereupon the terrifying mess evaporates. I have a hard time determining if my metaphor works or not. I should really just go to bed...

    Thanks for doing this thread! I've only been identifying as an ESTJ (instead of an ISTJ) recently, and this has been incredibly helpful in verifying that I really am an ESTJ. I actually joined the forums because I had been binging on this topic, haha.
