i guess im a ESFJ but there seems so much negative talk about esfj-s I sometimes decline to be identified as one.. also, (me) being highly structured and pragmatic, there are some things about an ESFJ thats very impractical.. ..and being a very pragmatic person I most truly dont want to be operating in a inefficient / impractical manner.. ..so these are my thoughts.
then again, I cant really share (my thoughts) so much, can I,
I shall be labelled the-one-who-talked-too-much! And when i dont express myself, i'm called the Bimbo. does ANY other temperaments have to do as much balancing as I !!?? Am I the only ESFJ that feels growing up in a church was one of the biggest curses in my life!!? (people being so prone to / love (!) / liberal with criticism there..)
...when your biggest interrest is gossip.
..when you have a Library of insults but so far no one has seen it yet (!) because esfjs are so FIGGIN NICE.
(yup...i know a certain tim who will be getting flammin from me, just you see.. just ONE toe out of line....one)
My sister is a esfj...shes mean as hell.
Calling me a weirdo, pyscho, and an idiot on a daily basis.
We joke alot though and make fun of my ESFP brother. Not because hes ESFP.
I don't understand the ESFJ hatred and it certainly doesn't apply to the one ESFJ I know IRL. She's the most beloved person I know....
You're an ESFJ, when your chat looks like this: "Bla bla bla ... Oh btw, did you hear from X [just a random guy we see a few times per week at work]? He didn't call me today. Actually he didn't write any emails since yesterday. He's not at work today. I asked the boss, she said he will come but he didn't. That's so not like him. I think something's wrong. I'll call him later. No, let's call him now."
And what is a fellow ISTP doing during this monologue - apart from thinking "Who the hell cares? The guy's not here. Dot." - ? I was redesigning in my mind the I'm-with-stupid t-shirt into a I'm-with-ESFJ one :D
But I agree with Linnifae. Both ESFJs I know are totally adorable and even though I cannot imagine how a person can be so interested in other people it's good that they exist. On your bad day, no-one will ever help you like an ESF.
