    I'm saying ENFJ if you feel you're extraverted. I'd think an ESFJ would have more follow through on projects & stick to their opinion more often.

    Hmmm... I could see both.

    How important is closure to you? When you make a decision, do you feel better when the decision is made or do you feel better exploring all options & keeping the decision somewhat open ended?

    Default Ahhhhh!!!!!!!!

    Oh, man...now I am really confused!!!!!

    But the ENFP/ENFJ really fit me super well. I mean, okay, I read an example of the ESFJ, and I can see why you guys might think that fits, but I do not think so for the following reasons:

    1) I am NOT practical. Or I will come up with weird, bizarre ideas.

    2) In addition, I have a huge imagination.

    3) I love abstract concepts - like spirituality, philosophy, and things like that.

    4) I hate partying - not to mention hosting. Blah. I have to actively remind myself to remember someone's birthday or I totally forget. It does not come naturally.

    5) My "helping" is not practical - it is more about people sharing their feelings. My husband is more the practical helper.

    6) I kinda forget to clean my apartment sometimes. My head is full of other stuff. Oops.

    7) Granted, I like structure and order, but I do not blindly follow authority. On the contrary - I am very skeptical about authority and always ask "why" (my favorite question as a kid).

    8) When I do things to respect authority, it is not because I love rules and structure, but because I want the other person to feel okay and "like" me. If it is totally unreasonable, I will defend my beliefs.

    Hmm, considering I got a critical email from my prof in university saying if I did not start being consistent with my projects that I would have serious problems in life, I'd say more ENFJ.

    Somehow I have problems making decisions, so I feel a definite need to make any decision just to decide.

    Here's a suggestion: How about just taking an online test and telling us what your type is?

    Stimulate. I was almost giddy after a private lesson that lasted 9 hours because the person loved learning, was extremely motivated, and picked up on things well. So it gave me a natural high.
