    Seriously. This. That's a large part of their gift.

    Stick around. This forum needs a different (i.e. real) perspective on ESFJs.

I thought that I'd scored some kind of lottery because all of my awkwardness could be explained by these little personality descriptions. I went to intpc for a while so I could bro it up with my fellow INTPs, but something didn't seem right and it took a while to dawn on me (I'm a bit dense). It felt like kind of a circle jerk there anyway so I left to find answers on my own. First came F for my bleeding heart, then came J for my sense of determinism, then came E because I enjoy people, then eventually I settled on S for my priorities (it was the most difficult).

    So there's hope for you yet, you reading this might actually be ESFJ. Good on you!

    ESFJ is not a type for everyone though, it takes a unique combination of compassion and ruthlessness that few types have.
    Haven is one of my favorite ESFJs tbh.

    Question: what priorities specifically made you switch from N to S? And why was that switch the most difficult?

    Thanks, I was most convinced of N because that's how I always scored post-childhood, and had some pride in being intelligent and insightful. All my qualities aside, I kept moving towards immediate, practical things. Insight is great, but I cared less and less for it in my efforts to solve other problems that I felt like I had more control over. Plus I can't identify with Ni, it just seems convoluted to me.
