    okay haha

    was sorta being jokey anyway

    the esfj's from my observation anyway would sort of seem to be organizing or helping host or facilitating conversations or meetings with other people. sort of like the party coordinator

    they might seem "out there" and funny at times...maybe telling a story to a group etc but less of a party animal or center of attention...less of a performer

    what type of parties do you go to? that might help.

    I thought you were describing an ESFP. I guess I always make the mistake then. So how would the ESFP be in that particular scenario?

    I would go to the type where I would have to invite myself. Like meetup.com which is usually social settings like at bars/clubs. Not really my thing, but I figure if I want to meet an ESFP face to face I will have to push myself into that scenario.

    well i'm no expert with esfps but i imagine they're more similar to me and esfjs are more similar to enfj

    and from what i've noticed at parties the esfj is like what i described above and i'm thinking the esfp would be more just hanging out being social with everyone but like in a whoohoo party mode than a facilitator type role.

    maybe op person will come back soon and be more help. she's on a bit of a hiatus.

    That's kind of a vague question, but it's my understanding that it mainly just means taking in information using my five senses in the immediate moment.

    What makes you believe you are a feeler over a thinker?
    I'm mad emo, yo. I mean, my feelings are always on the surface or right under the surface. I can't fathom having a reason to live if I didn't have emotional connections with people. And I'm highly illogical. And I'm fine with that. I cry at movies, soap operas, long distance dedication letters, hell sometimes an important home run or touchdown in a sports event.

    In short, I'm about as F''d up as one can be.

    I actually think ESFJs go to more parties than ESFPs do. It's just the ESFPs are the ones that get talked about the next day because they did something more memorable.

    I'd say that stereotypes exist for a reason, so obviously many of them will be true about many ESFPs but as long as one remembers that nothing is true across the board and people are all individuals then it's not really a big deal. When it comes to parties, I like the ones where something fun is taking place, so like playing games or watching a game/movies/etc. Or dancing or whatever like that. If it's just people standing around drinking and talking, I can skip those, that gets boring quick.

    What fictional/famous ESFPs do you feel a connection with?
    Tina Roberts - One Life To Live
    David Vickers - One Life To Live
    Longfellow Deeds - Mr. Deeds (might be an ISFP)
    Rayanne Graff - My So-Called Life
    Frank Pembleton - Homicide: Life on the Street (might be an ISFP)
    Marty Saybrooke - One Life To Live
    Kelly Cramer - One Life To Live
    Hayley Vaughn - All My Children
    Michelangelo - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    Lynn Minmei - Robotech
    Dana Sterling - Robotech
    Annie LaBelle - Robotech



    Charlie Sheen
    Gracie Allen
    Cyndi Lauper
    Flavor Flav
    Josh Hamilton
    Magic Johnson
    Michael J. Fox
    Tracy Morgan
    Jim Breuer
    Jodie Sweetin
    Will Ferrell
    Adam Sandler (might be ISFP)
    Lance Berkman
    Steve White
    Damon Wayans
    Pink (might be ESTP)
    JennaMarbles (might be ESTP)
    Red Skelton
    David Canary

    Yeah, I'm aware for the fictional ones, that's more females than males, but I guess that's not too surprising since there are more ESFP females statistically. The ESFP perspective is represented in fiction more by females except for the kind of stock "frat boy drunkard" character which I don't relate to.

    Those tend to be the parties I like. Size is a big issue, also. I don't like too big. Conversations tend to stop in big parties before they get interesting. It ends up being all small talk, because everyone is always flitting over to the other 5000 people after 5 minutes.
    [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....

    I think about some of this stuff. You can watch my "Faith and Type" series on my Youtube channel and see some discussion of such things. It's definitely a minority of my time that I think about stuff like that though. And my general philosophy is that it doesn't really matter how we all got here, it only matters what we do with our time now.

    I'm on a rec league softball team, I make Youtube videos, I write lyrics and song parodies, I'm working on an audio drama show, I haven't been acting in theatre lately but I have a bunch in the past and want to again.


    What is a behavior you strongly dislike in others?
    Judging/bashing people/gossip type stuff.

    What's your favorite movie/musical artist?
    Hard to pick just one in both of those categories, but if I absolutely had to I'd say "Finding Nemo" and Jars of Clay.


    Thanks for opening up to questions like this!
    You're welcome.

    When you read a book or analyze any work of art, do you take things in literally, or do you get a 'sense' of whats beneath all of it (even if you can't articulate it)? Is a chair always a chair?
