    Got it. That's what I figured you were referring to.

I over think pretty much everything.

    I'm very practical and down to earth and generally look at the big picture. However, I am also constantly planning for the future and trying to solve problems. I spend a lot of time ruminating on future possibilities, as well as things that have happened in the past.

    So, basically, I would like some help. Opinions? Questions? I'm pretty open to sharing just about anything.

    Is it really possible for me to have no preference? Or am I just an S with anxiety?
    You have a preference for intuition largely because you are constantly looking forward in the future, as well as looking toward the past. An ESFJ despite their preference for Si-Se would mostly just focus on present issues.

    Besides I'm of the opinion that it's unlikely that functions express themselves as Xd-Xe-Xd-Xe anyways so take that as you will. An ENFJ would usually express their intuition in an outward way anyways.

    The one caveat I would make to this is ESxJs do tend to be planners and focus on tangible future issues.

    North and south get too much love on here.

    I never see any E vs W threads....

    That is a very MBTI-ish way of thinking. Which I believe isn't looked to well here, but you have point. Just not one that I agree too much with.

    Believe what you want... my mom is an ESFJ super-planner. She's thinking about future events all the time. She still identifies strongly as ESFJ. As does my coworker who identifies as ESTJ and always has her schedule book around. I do not choose to stick with rigid S/N stereotype.

    ESFJ makes good organisers. So I agree with the above poster.
