    Default Ask an ESFJ

    I'm typing as ESFJ now. I'd like to start dispelling some myths about this type, and really start to humanize this sadly underrepresented and stigmatized type. During my time here on the forum, I'll likely change my listed type again. But I don't think I'll ever feel 100 percent confident in any of this; that's just me. For now, though...I really think I'm ESFJ.

    If it turns out I'm not, well, at least we all had a good time. Hopefully other ESFJs can pop in so we can have a more diverse range of responses.

    Ready...set...go.

    The ideas I can share with friends. Plans for fun things. Actually, yesterday evening I went to a student team meeting for my church. I just loved it...sitting around a table brainstorming all the stuff we're gonna do this summer. Water parks, camping, sailing, stuff like that. I love the ideas that I can say, "hey, let's talk about this, and that, and then this again." I love sharing them.

    Edit: Also, outlandish things that don't really make sense, or that are really random. Putting two things together that shouldn't go together.

    Eh, not particularly. I'm not the greatest leader in the world and I get stressed when I have to be authority. If there's somebody above me, then maybe. But being number one is pretty unpleasant, because then I really have to know everything and I don't really have backup. Maybe that's the 6 in me?

    Basically, I work much better as a collaborator, or if I'm working alone. Having many people depend on my sole guidance isn't comfortable for me. And I'm a wonderful brainstormer, but I suck ass at implementing. I'm going to have to work on that before I become a teacher.

    Ahh, I see. Then I would have to say friendship, love, connectedness, self-awareness, and inspiration itself. Those are the things and ideas I really feed off of.
