    ESFJ and INFP

    ESFJ women...so, I dated two ESFJs in the past. the last relationship lasted a bit over a year and they were both really good relationships. This seems to be a pattern, theres something about ESFJs thats really draws me in and its fun and exciting. Im wondering if its the same the other way around, Im INFP.

    I suppose i can tell you what attracted me to my INFP partner.

    He is quirky and knowledgeable which i thoroughly enjoy. He is not very romantic but he knows when i really need a lift so i get notes or just a hug which is gratefully received.
    I like the fact he is laid back and brings me back in when he can visibly see i am under pressure.

    Just a few positives for you ;)

    I go out with an ESFJ.

    She's pretty cuddly and fun but veery full on. It's like a constant balance between being whipped (bad) and not fulfilling her emotional needs (bad).

    curious on ESFJ perspective too

    Do you think that has something to do with Fe and Fi??? .. See my partner will keep everything to himself until he is ready to talk whereas i have to speak up as my heart is on my sleeve although i am aware i may cause conflict by speaking up which i don't like.

    Don't get me wrong, there are times when i can be completely objective and just focus on how he feels without my feelings being brought into the equation but at other times i am only subjective. If it hurts, i'll speak up.

    yeah i think so, ur probably right about that. We deal with emotions differently and that sometimes can cause a conflict. If she had any problems shed come to with them many times which I dont mind but sometimes it was too much...sometimes it seemed like whining or getting waay too upset about something. and i guess why I didn understand why she had to deal with it like that is because most INFPs deal with emotions by themselves. we just need our alone time or just stay quiet about it and dont express it. its not always healthy lol but its def. opposite of esfj

    i think i've read somewhere that Fi and Fe are atracted to eachother.

    If we were both Fi we'd probably keep everything to ourselves and be very careful about opening up. With her (ESFJ) it's easy because she will always open up to me and then it's easier for me to do it. Actually that's one thing that i like about her that she keeps her heart out there in the open while i'm striving to do the same thing but am afraid of being hurt.

    I may be wrong about this whole Fi Fe thing because my knowledge of the mbti is quite limited.

    that makes a lot of sense actually. its really not easy for me to talk about my feelings and i only do it if im close to someone. its easier to open up tho if the other person does it first, and Fe being like that makes it easier for us Fi s . Cuz we always wait for a 'green light' and the other person starting it gives a green light that way for us to open up more.

    uhmm...how about an ESFJ male and an INFP female..does it differ with genders coz uh...i feel like he's more worldly and i'm a bit reserved and aloof sometimes and i feel like he sometimes thinks i'm out of this world or something when i'm awfully quiet...but he's always complimenting me when i'm cheerful and perky...O.O...and when it comes to feelings, i don't know if he sees me as aloof or sensitive...he has sometimes told me that i get sensitive sometimes but then again...i feel like he can also sense my aloofness...does the INFP aloofness bother an ESFJ or they don't mind it at all?
