Everyone is different and almost nobody fits their MBTI results at 100%- unless their trying to.

    I'm the same way. It helps me understand others, and that understanding make me, if nothing else, more tolerant.

    It's from a book. You might actually want to even go show her the book if it will create more validity. Maybe she'll be curious enough to turn the page and look over at other profiles too.

    Thanks, I think I'll try both, using the morriscat website first since it covers from childhood to adulthood.

    Depending on hobbies, for example, if she's a fan of movies and such. Find ones that emphasise on different opinions and how they all work etc.

    Honestly, it depends on what you guys clash about. Maybe, the truth is that she does realise the difference, but still wants you to follow her way regardless.
    I've tried this before, and it wasn't very effective. But I'll give it another shot.

    Again, I think there is a bit of confusion after the post left by the member whatever. I never said that SJs do not understand theory, and I never said that they do not use it ever in their lifetime. And again, my aim wasn't to explain the MBTI, it was how to go about presenting it, as in 'where to start?' The MBTI is about how different people take in, process, and utilize information, so I wanted to make sure that I was presenting the information in a way that would best suit her since I believe she best fits the correlations of the ESFJ type description.

    Have you told her what's your own type, and how that makes you see the world (or actually how your view of world makes you an INFJ)?

    Some Es (maybe ES?) are kinda afraid of being defined too precisely by some theories. It might even make them feel as if they are being boxed and told how they should behave.

    When I was first introduced to MBTI, I was most interested in these summaries, since I had no idea what all that psychological babble was.

    Here are few nice lists about ESFJ:
