    Default Why doesn't anyone like ESFJ's?

    Hello there, I just joined today. I recently took the MBTI from a counselor and tested ESFJ. After coming here and reading all the posts it seems like my type is more of a curse for me. What are the reasons why everyone is so down on my type?

    Because a lot of ESFJ's suck hard.

    I like two, personally.

    But hey, Ms. Saslou on here kicks a lot of people's ass, so I won't be so hard on judging you
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    You should keep in mind that every Archetype has it's own idiosyncrasy/stereotype/negativity attached to it, regardless of whether those suppositions have any truth or not. This is the result of inductive reasoning prevailing over conductive reasoning.

    So, I'm just going to state my opinions about the ESFJs that I know to straightforwardly answer your question.

    Being an INFP, I view some of them as being obnoxious and obtrusive. They may also be materialistic and "party animals". They may also try to force others to reciprocate when they are generous or "altruistic".

    However, they can be very pleasent if the circumstances are proper.

    There's wisdom in Saslou, which I find appealing.

    I don't hate ESFJs, I just pretend to hate them so INTPs will like me.

    The answer is, because most of the people here are INTx, and don't like or understand their shadow type. The rest of us are just following the crowd.

    Because I don't know any.
    Really.

    I can't like nor hate a type. I love the ESTJ type because I know several nice and interesting ESTJs who make the type more concrete. I've despised the ENFJ type for a while because I knew only one real-life ENFJ and that was an annoying one - until I realised one of my former teachers also belonged to that type. Now I like the type. I'd still need more examples in order to really love it.

    ESFJ are only four letters to me. I'd love to find some real-life ESFJs around me that I can use as examples.
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    One of my best friends is a wonderful ESFJ.

    But I've known some really irritating, overbearing, bitchy, shallow ones too.

    There's good and bad with every type, and I think some types get along better than others. Or something.
