    Default Ask an ESFJ too!

    In an effort to clear up all the huge misconceptions people have about us reliable, friendly, and super-terrific ESFJs, I start this thread so you may ask all your stupid questions and get solid, straightforward answers that are morally right and make complete sense.

    So, ask away!

    Hooray! Hooray!
    I'm still thinking every type should have a question-answering thread...

    What's the biggest difference between an ESFJ and an ESTJ?
    What's the best way to make an ESFJ feel appreciated and loved?

    I can't read any response you make without a Groucho-esque inflection now.

    OK, here's your question:

    Why are you impersonating an ESFJ?

    Edit: I know either you or the mods would have changed your type for 1 Apr, but why the continued charade?

    (ps sorry if I am spoiling your fun)

    then, real ESFJ, I have a question...

    ... most of the real ESFJs I have as close friends end conversations with "Love ya!" or similar sentiments of love... I've never even said that to my own sister! What is the proper response for a cold hearted ESTP bastard in such a situation? (ok... one who values the friendship and wants to KEEP the ESFJ friend!)

    Well I'm not an ESFJ but I have an ESFJ grandmother, and I find the best solution is to just humor her and tell her what she wants to hear so that she stfu. I know that sounds really mean, but damn it.

    Her traditional way of saying good-bye is, "God bless you." And she doesn't effing let up until you say something of the kind back. "You, too," doesn't count, by the way. You have to say, "God bless you, too." I guess that's going to get me into heaven or something?!?!?! Well, anyway....

    Same deal. If the ESFJ says, "Love you," then you will have to give some kind of positive affirmation, like, "You, too - take care!" or "You, too, you're such a great friend, and thanks for the chat," or some shit. Just grit your teeth and bear it. It's better for you, for her, and for everyone else, too.

    hmmm... so the solution is to just give in... well, they'd better be prepared to compromise with me on another facet of life then (like making me UNsweetened iced tea!)

    The biggest difference I've observed is the ESFJ seems more sympathetic in general. ESTJs can have less understanding for circumstances because they seem to have such an attitude of "if I can do it, anybody can!" about stuff. Usually because they are such hard workers, they don't understand how anybody could not share their work ethic.

    It seems like ESFJs will consider any number of factors and have a little more sympathy about a situation.
