I would say my academic career has been a pretty big accomplishment so far considering I have ADHD working against me but still managed to graduate from university in 4 years, with honors.
    I chose a difficult major, too. I wanted to prove myself. I got a little distracted, so I was more of a B student overall than an A student, but still, that's nothing to frown about. I wish I'd devoted a little more effort to my courses in hindsight, but you only live once.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Yeah, my grades definitely dipped senior year because I was more focused on enjoying it and spending time with friends. But, my final GPA was still a 3.6! Just barely graduated Cum Laude. I definitely don't regret it either. My relationships are ultimately more important to me than academic success.

    Could you see yourself in a long term relationship with an ESTJ?

    Yea, some of them are pretty hot, while others are the kind I love to hate.

    Yea, manners are a weird thing, it's a pattern unfamiliar people follow to establish common ground, like a secret handshake of sorts. A little bit of rudeness can break the ice and make people less self conscious, but too much and it becomes awkward. Some people get really uptight about them, but they probably aren't ESFJs.

    - How did you discover your mbti type?

    - Being a dominant extroverted feeler, do you feel more sensitive than most people?

    - Is it easy for you to talk freely about your own feelings, or do you prefer to focus on the feelings of others?

    - What were you like as a kid? (ex. outgoing, well behaved, high energy, etc.)

    - How does your enneagram type relate to your mbti type?

    - How do you use your Si function?

    - Being an SJ, how do you relate to/view SPs, NFs, & NTs?

    - How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

    - Do you feel ESFJs are good in leadership positions? (Or does it depend on the individual?)

    Hope I haven't asked too much. If so, sorry. I'm full of questions today. lol

    I took the test as a teen and got ESTJ, then I took it again around age 20 and got ExFJ. I read type descriptions for ESFJ/ENFJ, posted here, talked to friends, etc. and realized I am definitely a sensor.

    Being a dominant extroverted feeler, do you feel more sensitive than most people?
    About some things. I tend to handle criticism better than a lot of xxFPs. But I am definitely more sensitive to exclusion/isolation than most people I know.

    Is it easy for you to talk freely about your own feelings, or do you prefer to focus on the feelings of others?
    I find both to be very easy.

    What were you like as a kid? (ex. outgoing, well behaved, high energy, etc.)
    Outgoing, high energy, precocious, talkative, not a whole lot of self control. I was also extremely bossy. Think Hermione with ADHD.

    How does your enneagram type relate to your mbti type?
    I think ESFJs and 3s are both very concerned with other people's perception of them. I see Fe as having a lot of 3ish tendencies.

    How do you use your Si function?
    I am a creature of habit. I need some semblance of a routine in my life, and new experiences stress me out and make me feel overwhelmed. It takes me quite awhile to transition into new things.

    Do you feel ESFJs are good in leadership positions? (Or does it depend on the individual?)
    Personally, I love them/thrive in them. I think it depends a lot on the maturity level and priorities of the ESFJ though.
