    Default ESFx?

    Hi! I made an account here because I was lurking, and I've been having some typing problems with myself recently.
    I'm very prominently ExFx. After some hard consideration, I've decided that I'm definitely ESFx. But I'm not sure whether I'm judging or perceiving.

    Some things about me...
    - My rooms and workspaces tend to get cluttered and messy very, very easily. Sometimes I have cans and bottles and cups and plates lying around that I just can't be bothered to deal with. But I always end up cleaning it anyways, and the cycle repeats.

    - I much prefer living in a clean place to a messy place.

    - I put off assignments until the last minute almost always.

    - However, I hate doing things without knowing the consequences. I never blurt things out or make decisions without thinking about it first.

    - I have a great deal of empathy. I literally care about everyone, whether I like them as a person or not.

    - I'm opinionated, but I will alter what I say to a person based on who I'm talking to, as I tend to avoid conflict.

    - However, if necessary, I will face conflict -- having a falling out with a friend upsets me deeply, but I would rather get something out in the open than keep it bottled up forever.

    - My friends tend to go to me with their problems, even people I'm not close with sometimes open up to me. Once, I had a friend in a dilemma who asked me what they should do -- when I said I didn't know, they responded (not sarcastically), "Well if YOU don't know what to do, I'm screwed!"

    - I like making lists and writing things down. I tend to forget things if I don't write them down. Sometimes I forget things two seconds after I think them.

    - I understand everyone's point of view, whether I agree with it or not.

    - I'm almost always level-headed. Even when I have irrational feelings, I recognize that they're irrational, and I don't indulge them.

    - I hate feeling like a serious dilemma is completely out of my control.

    - I like to have a clear idea of what I'm going to do before I do it. Although I'm not awful at improvisation, I feel a lot better when I have at least some kind of plan.

    - I need to take my MP3 player with me everywhere -- if I have to go somewhere without it, I feel immensely uncomfortable.

    - I notice details about people that others seem to overlook. I can remember random, insignificant facts about celebrities I like and friends. Sometimes a friend will tell me something insignificant and I'll bring it up months later and they'll be surprised that I remembered that.

    - I'm a very quick learner when it comes to things I'm interested in. If I'm not interested in it, I'll have to teach and reteach myself about 8 times for it to sink in. I'm also a hands-on person, I enjoy learning things by doing them.

    - I tend to do all my studying for tests about five minutes before I take the test.

    - I have such amounts of empathy, that if a friend of mine tells me that they're feeling miserable, I'll probably end up feeling miserable too. If they tell me they have a killer headache, I'll get a headache as well.

    - I went on YouTube to watch videos of ESFPs and see if I act like them. It was honestly hard for me to watch, they were just TOO enthusiastic! My favorite type to watch is INTJ, and I get along best with introverts (although I'm an incredibly extroverted person).

    - I can't handle being alone for more than short amounts of time because I'm afraid I'll lose control of my calmness and there won't be anyone I'll be able to talk to about it.

    Yeah...I'd really like your input! And if you read all of that rambling, thank you so much. I hope I didn't bore you to tears.

    Are you male or female? What's the dating/relationship history like? How do you feel about politics?

    Preliminary thoughts estj to be honest
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I'm female, I don't have enough relationship history to comment, and I'm relatively liberal.

    I wouldn't classify myself as T...conflict really upsets me, and I like to make sure that everyone's on the same page. I use logic primarily, but I use logic mixed with how I feel and other people feel about situations as well. I mean, I'm pretty 50/50 on that -- I wouldn't do something I didn't feel was right, but I would come to that consensus based on how I felt, I suppose.
    Based on this description of the type: http://www.personalitypage.com/ESTJ.html
    I'm not an aggressive person at all, assertive yes but not aggressive...I'm not rigid at all, I adapt to change well and I actually crave it (I don't really get bored easily, but I like change, as it keeps things fresh). And I'm not really a leader type, for the most part. Basically, ESTJs sound very "Type A" personality, and I'm not Type A at all.

    But thank you!

    Mhmm, not meant too seriously. It's good to have "impressions" I think at times especially if you don't take them too seriously. Why do you like intjs?

    You sound more J-ish again just an impression

    I like INTJs because they're (generally) clever, independent, intelligent, and driven. Which are all qualities I would like to see in myself!

    Yeah, I generally agree, but there's a lot of qualities ESFJs have that I don't...as an example, I'm not a control freak, although I do like being in control. I don't always follow authority, only if I respect the people in control. And I don't take my responsibilities extremely seriously...lol.

    I seem to fit the description of ENFJ almost to a T, but I don't see myself as an Intuitive. Gah, this typing thing drives me crazy, lol.

    I've actually known of the personality types for a year, and I had myself typed as ESFP. The only thing that's recent is me seriously doubting the type I thought I was.

    An ESFJ has lead extraverted feeling and ESFP has auxillary introverted feeling.

    Do you tend to adhere more to personal values? (such as personal morals, rights/wrongs, etc) (Fi)

    Or are your values framed around that of your environment? (Fe)

    Well, I'm not going to do anything that goes against my personal values, but I'm probably more of the latter...it's really situational for me.

    It really depends what I'm buying. For example, I could blow $50 on iTunes in two minutes flat, because I've been planning to buy several albums. Sometimes I get an urge to buy things for the sake of buying them, but I can usually handle money to a certain extent. It generally depends whether I really want what I'm buying or not. I wouldn't buy something I genuinely had no interest in.
