    Too many commitments going on.

    My ESFJ mom is into talking about typology with me, but I can't ever see her sustaining interest in something so non-tangibly-productive long enough to extensively read, much less join and regularly participate in, a forum like this. She likes to do.

    I can somewhat relate to this, but my inclination runs that little bit fiercer, it may be because I grew up in the age of video games and computers and so for me there was always plenty to do online and off socially.

    So it is easier for me to accept that online has plenty to offer. Without the requirement of physical engagement.

    Lonely, lumpy and confusing.

    Yeah, I think generation matters. But that's also just my mom's individual personality, too. She doesn't like to sit still for anything for very long.

    I see you have ENFJ now. I still do think you have a good dose of Ni in there somewhere.

    I invited my real life ESFJ friend to join this forum (and read my posts ).

    Her response: "I don't have any interest in something like that. "

    Or perhaps your Ni leans towards Si and/or Si leans towards Ni. Theoretically I believe they can be quite similar, just like my ESFJ mom very heavily uses Je such that her Fe at times resembles pure Te.

    That's something I've wondered about before. I may actually be a little weak in my Je, I've never related to descriptions of order, tidiness and organisation as I myself am fairly opposite of those.

    But it's an interesting insight and of the two options presented I suspect it is Si leading to Ni. Ni is not a function I really see in my cognition, although I can admire it in others when it is well applied.
