    Default Type me (once and for all)

    So, as you may know, I have an SFP complex. I always lean towards ESFP, but ISFP traits are very present and undeniable. On the forum I am known as an ESFP, but let me tell you a bit about myself in real life.

    I'm always highly aware of my surroundings. A bit hypersensitive about it. Always looking around. Always the first to catch people's emotions, something new, a bird in the sky. Quick to react.

    *I'm a very freedom-loving person. I like to be free from commitment and tie-downs. BUT, at the same time I am a very driven, hard worker. (This is not a known quality of either type.) I am career oriented and straight shooting. No one/ nothing will get in the way of my schooling and career. I pride myself in drive and intelligence when it comes to my field. So these commitments do tie me down despite a need to be free. (Its always a constant battle between work and play.)

    I am mostly a very warm and friendly person, but have periods of coldness and distance. I am pretty low-energy a lot of the time, but I have these big spurts of energy where I get my stuff done and I'm "on" so to speak."

    I'm pleasant, kind, receptive, adaptable. Not a loud-mouth, but a good conversationalist. Good listener, too.

    I'm a kids and animals magnet, whether I want to be or not.

    Friends and family are very important.

    I'm a hands on learner, although proficient in other learning styles, and do well in school/learn fast.

    I'm known for being practical. Time/money/situations. I get to the heart and importance of matters quickly and am able to manage with little resources. (Though not always. Sometimes its not necissary to be practical with time and money and things- sometimes you just gotta splurge and do what you want. BUT only with the resources to do so.)

    My friends know me as cool, calm and collected. Slow to anger but slow to get excited. Just generally calm and happy and content most of the time. Level headed. Looks at all perspectives before passing judgements or making decisions. (Causes me to be slow with decision making though)

    Down to earth.

    I do not enjoy theory. I do not enjoy talking about things that don't matter right now, or don't have much application to anything. I can easily talk about these things and understand them for academic purposes, but that is the only purpose that they serve in my life. (Well, mbti is a little different..) So as a result, I gain as much knowledge as needed for a test/ job. And then manage to excel at the actual job because I can apply easier than I can theorize about it.

    Does that make sense?

    I'm conscious of my appearance and popularity.

    I am always on time. I am very time conscious and will procrastinate until the very last minute to prepare for something/ get ready. But will always show up on time and prepared. (Somehow.)

    I enjoy a busy social life. The more people in my life, the better!!!


    I am very sensitive to rejection and critisism. I'm sensitive in general. I try to put on a tough face.

    I can become depressed and anxious easily. I bottle up feelings/ and am afraid to share them. I get things worked up in my head to more than they should be/ catastrophize, but still can maintain a cool face.

    Love parties!! yayQ!!!!


    I'm warm, friendly, and approachable.

    (Cliche, but).. I'm naturally artistic.

    Yet, I choose not to use it, unfortunately.

    I'm very quiet/shy in new and uncomfortable situations: parties and social events are sually okay, depending on the group.
    Work things/ learning new things and I will become very quiet/ scared/anxious/shy.

    Will normally put schoolwork over social events/ will try to make time for friends for later.

    Reactive about most events in life. Let things happen to me. New jobs/new friends/ new anything.
    Not proactive about change.

    As lazy as possible without blowing things off. (If theres a spare moment, I will be caught on the couch with a beer falling asleep.)

    Motherly. nurturing.

    Nothing I read in there contradicts the notion of ESFP. Do you want to be a different type? Or do you just want attention?

    nothing contradicts the notion of isfp either

    (adding a couple of things to support ISFP to show why i'm apprehensive.)

    I think you are ESFP. A really balanced ESFP.
    Why?
    Overall the description leans towards someone making great use of extraverted sensing and extraverted thinking.
    Also it doesn't have that tortured artist feel to it you hear in a lot of ISFP ramblings.

    You sound more J than P to me. Have you ruled out ISFJ or ESFJ? From the description, I think those are the two most likely possibilities.

    Your desire for closure (and your discomfort as a result of your MBTI uncertainty) could be considered evidence of a still-maturing J replacement to your current P digit.

    ESFj?

    You sound like an ESFP with a bit of social anxiety (unrelated to type).
    Act your age not your enneagram number.

    I'm always on time, and I'm a P. Don't overestimate what "J" and "P" mean... I know J's who are NOT always on time.

    That said, I think you're ESFP.

    You said "I love parties" and "the more people in my life the better." Even though ISFPs can seem a bit extraverted, we don't ALWAYS like parties (I hardly ever like them unless they're like a dinner party where I know everybody) and we definitely don't feel "the more people the better" because that idea seems terribly overwhelming to an introvert.

    Plus, truthfully, you V.I. as an ESFP.

    V.I? What does that mean?

    LoL about the tortured artist. This is what keeps bringing me to the ESFP conclusion.

    No, I haven't ruled them out. I've tested for both of these as well. P still seems more accurate to me, though. Everything is still to the minute and I don't think ahead. I just work fast and efficiently at the last minute. Also very flexible and laid back. I'm on the line with the J/P stuff.

    ESFj?
    I've thought of this as a possibility! A very tough P-J transition could be happening. (Except I've been the same way for most of my life. So, I tend to end up ruling out change as a factor. )
