    *jumps in thread*

    Is this like a blog or something?

    Did you just say you enjoy receiving a roll of paper towels as a present?

    I dunno. It could be a blog. Maybe it should be?

    If I needed paper towels, I would LOVE paper towels! Like I said, we enjoy the simple things Plus, my favorite gifts are the ones that I really need.

    Speaking of things that make ESTJs happy, a small anecdote: I'm in awe of my mini-fridge! Got it on CraigsList for $25. It looks horrible, but I cleaned it out with some baking soda and now...

    But since you're here... questions?

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

    Yeah I'm thinking it would be a sweet idea for a blog. You can answer questions while talking about your life. Or something like that.

    Hell Trinity turned her "what type am I?" thread into a blog.

    Question: What's your favourite type of beer to put in that fridge?

    Um... something mild/sweet. I don't like beer that much. I'm trying to learn to like it. I'm at that stage where drinking it isn't a lot of fun, but eating things that were cooked in it is one of the most delicious things ever. But if I drank beer, I would stock my fridge with local beer. The area where I live has excellent (so I've heard) local brews.

    But mostly I will use my fridge for:
    1. caffeinated beverages,
    2. leftovers, and
    3. hummus. I <3 hummus!

    I WOULD request that this be turned into a blog... but
    1. I don't know if it is technically a blog, since other ESTJs are invited to participate (not that they do...) and
    2. it would be competing with D@v3's blog... which is a BAD idea. My blog would lose. More people would pay attention to and/or use my thread when it's here in the Guardhouse.

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

    I kind of like this format. That way we can still ask questions or suggest topics without sounding like we're horning in on your blog and just need to get our own. I like the everyone can jump in kind of interaction.

    Do you have anything else you would like to volunteer to the person who is working for, is a family member of, or is a SO of an ESTJ?

    I'm totally with you on the practical presents thing. It's so fun to see how thrilled they get over little things like a great Starfrit can opener they've been needing, or something like that. They'll even tell everyone they know all about it! Food items seem to also go over well I've noticed.

    What are ESTJs like about health and fitness? I found mine ate great, didn't really like desserts, and was on and off about the fitness. He liked it though if there was either an eating thing or a fitness thing that he could tell other people about. He got P90X and organized a bunch of people to do it, using a data projector on the gym wall.

    What do you look for in your significant others? What attracts you to someone? (Yes, EJCC I know you feel uncomfortable talking about that stuff, but inquring minds really want to know!). Are you friends with or sometimes interested in Thinkers or Feelers more frequently?

    What kinds of things make you feel the most squirmy emotionally?

    NO!!! I eat it with pita bread, or crackers. But I wouldn't put them in the fridge...

    We are direct, the best way to communicate with us is directly, and we appreciate directness. Also, if we get mad, LEAVE US ALONE. For a while, anyways. I can be pretty touchy-feely, but if I'm really angry about something, I just HATE being touched - even if it's, e.g, a sympathetic pat.

    Generally, we're very good about it. Overweight ESTJs are rare. The ESTJ I know eats well, rides his bike miles and miles every day, goes backpacking, and is built like a runner. I'm not very fit, but that's because I'm in the process of breaking out of the habit of being a couch potato (a habit gained from my parents, both of whom are overweight, and also from the fact that I never enjoyed sports). I eat very well, though, and as a result, am a healthy weight. People are always surprised to find out that I'm out of shape

    What do you look for in your significant others? What attracts you to someone? (Yes, EJCC I know you feel uncomfortable talking about that stuff, but inquring minds really want to know!). Are you friends with or sometimes interested in Thinkers or Feelers more frequently?
    The two most important things that I seek out in a significant other are: 1. being my intellectual equal in conversation, and 2. having a sense of humor compatible with mine. (Another important thing, that I'm sure matters to pretty much every ESTJ, is that my SO agree with me politically, and is at the very least open to my religion (i.e. not trying to convert me).) Besides that, I don't want there to be awkward silences, but I also don't want to be cut off mid-sentence all the time.
    I'm attracted (both romantically and otherwise) to people with whom I can converse for hours without getting bored. THAT'S chemistry.
    Generally, from my experience, I'm attracted to feelers, but most of my male friends are thinkers (STPs, NTs). Two of my male friends I have considered dating (one is an INFJ, and the other is ISFP), but neither worked out. For a time, I dated someone who may have been ESTP, but that was a terrible idea (not at all because of personality type).

    What kinds of things make you feel the most squirmy emotionally?
    Things that make me feel bad about myself in some way, e.g. things that make me insecure, doubtful of my ability, remorseful, embarrassed. I find that I'm more affected by embarrassment than anyone I know - I can't just remember humiliating memories (often)! I have to relive them, no matter how unimportant they were! It's frustrating.

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

    Back for another one!

    Do ESTJs always rationalize certain feelings i.e. attraction/romantic interest?

    I'm not an ESTJ, but this stood out to me:

    I know that this has become a frequent method of mine, using it when I'm trying to get over a girl I like, when she'd rather keep it as friends. It shows to you and to myself (two birds with one stone) that I'm trying to move on, and still value your judgment as a friend.

    EJCC, do you relate to that in any extent?

    But there are differences between when I've done it and what this guy in MDP2525's post is doing:
    They rejected me, I wasn't the one who rejected them.
    Usually, they've turned me down at the start, so I was never in a relationship with them to begin with. He's been in a relationship with you in the past.

    So those factors may affect what I said above, I don't know.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.
