WHAT'S UP EVERYONE ON THIS SUBFORUM. I would like to introduce myself. I am Temizzle.
So as of late, it has come to my attention that according to armchair self-proclaimed internet stranger typologists I am a certified ESFJ!! Congratulations to you all as you have just earned yourself a killer member on your team!!
Let me begin by talking a little bit about myself so that you can be certain of my ESFJness.
First thing's first. I hate it when people pity themselves and act helpless to their life circumstances. I can't count the number of times somebody has come to me crying, broken, shattered, and I don't do so much as bat an eye remaining stone cold and offering no support or pity. What is my go to? In the dryest tone imaginable, I will point out how they came to the fucked up situation they are at, and what they need to do to change it. The advice usually involves them sucking up their self pity and growing a pair of fat fucking balls.
I loathe tradition, I hate social niceties. I will not dance for the sake of dancing. I will not sing for the sake of singing. If a group of people is smiling dancing having a great time and need me to oblige and partake in order to preserve the social atmosphere I will stubbornly refuse and sit there stone cold and non-participating no matter what, even if that means ruining it for everyone else there.
I love to argue with people for the sake of arguing. I love challenging people for the thrill of the challenge and besting them. I was the kid that would challenge my peers to fights for the sake of it, for races for the sake of it, to chess matches for the sake of it. I am that obnoxious know-it-all in class that enjoys raising their hand and providing really snooty answers that demonstrate to the professor that the class is way too easy for me.
If you have any further questions my fellow ESFJ's, I would love to continue this discussion.
Every time I blow my nose I take a good look at the tissue before I throw it away.
I leave all of my clean clothes in a laundry basket in front of my dresser and pick clothes out of it each day rather than fold them and put them away. I also leave clean clothes in the dryer until someone else needs to use it. I just hate laundry so much. It's my one true weakness.
I bite my nails. Sometimes I bite them while making direct eye contact with people while we're talking. No one has called me out on it yet.
I don't like meat on my sandwiches with the exception of bacon, but only if the bacon is crispy. Also, I am an extremely picky eater in general.
When I see someone struggling but trying their best, I don't have the heart to correct them when they make a mistake, even if it directly affects me.
On the other hand, my hair (although very short) MUST be in-place or else, the items in my wallet have to be in there a certain way, my pocketbook contents have to be in there a certain way, my car has to have a phone charger and a certain kind of mints in the center console at all times, you get the idea. It's very regimented, but I'm rarely the "hot mess express" that seems to be the norm lately among people.
...and I totally agree with you on bacon, BTW. :-)
