Glad I could tender a response.Do you ever have moments where you just wish you could be any other type?
Nope, I me. I'll become the man I was destined to be. My ideals and values guide me, my dreams inspire me, my faith transforms me, and my God is sufficient for me. All of which are helping to shape me into the man I was meant to be.
How do you deal with your weaknesses?
I work at them, and let God, time, and my experiences do the rest. Practice helps.
Is it easy for you to accept what/who you are?
Why wouldn't it be? I'm not perfect, not by a long shot. Sometimes, I down right suck. I can only do so much about it though. I am who I am. I can work to better myself, but beyond that, it's not worth stressing about. I'm vigilant towards areas in which I can improve and I try to enjoy the moment.
Do you ever have moments where you wish you never took the test?
Yes and no. It's a tool. I never really had much of a choice any way. What happened happened. There is nothing I can do to change it. How would I know that I would be better off without it? I don't. I'll live and I'll use it as a tool both to help shape who I am and to help me understand others within reason.
How do you feel about yourself compared to the other types?
I'm me. We each individually define our type. The type shouldn't define us. Each person is different. Beautiful in their own way. We have to come to realize that. The rose is made more beautiful because of it's thorns.
I ask because i am currently doing this in my head ..
An ESFJ at odds with self is a remarkable sight. When a decision must be made, especially one involving the risk of conflict (abhorrent to ESFJs), there ensues an in-house wrestling match between the aforementioned black-and-white Values and the Nemesis of Discord. The contender pits self against self, once firmly deciding with the Right, then switching to Prudence to forestall hostilities, countered by unswerving Values, ad exhaustium, winner take all.
