    I would think everyone gets along with ESFJs. You're so nice. I have an ESFJ friend, and sometimes I wonder how we can be the same species.

    I think they are handicapped by emotional feelings and use it as an excuse to dismiss logical reasoning. I don't see how one would approve of using stupidity as a crutch O_O

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    I'm married to an ESFJ. She is truly the love of my life. I'm an INTP and yes we can annoy the s*** out of each other and can also be seriously dysfunctional. Yet in all honesty there is nothing she can do that would ever cause me to give up on us.

    We both grew up with single mothers. Mine was strong, independent, loving, supportive, protective and constantly reassured us as to who we were as individuals. Hers was distant and cold, unable to show love, mean, irrational and rarely around forcing them to grow up basically raising themselves.

    This caused her to become an introverted extrovert and me to be a sociable antisocial. We see ourselves in each other. It's like we're opposites twice. The personalities that we were born with make us opposites to each other and the personalities that we developed through life contradicts those personalities making us opposites to our selves but similar to each other.

    Plus I find her funny as hell. She's terrible a telling jokes but she doesn't realize it. I'm sure of it because she will tell a joke and almost die laughing never realizing that no one else in the room is laughing with her. I really do love when she does this. It's one of the only times I get to see her do something that she likes regardless of what people think. It's beautiful to see her loving myself!

    Nobody knows me as much as she does even if at times she doesn't think she knows me at all. And I love the fact that she has never made me feel weird or different. I have never felt more normal then I do when I'm with her. No one else has ever made me feel like that.

    She is loving and caring *even though this can be annoying and fustrating to someone like me* It's special and it's the reason why people like her. I'm lucky to have her, not as lucky as she is for having me but still pretty damn lucky. And if your reading this babe, this is the part where you say "Wateva!!"

    He could be right :P

    I could see that being the case. INFP's also seem to have nothing in common with them, from my experience.

    ESFJ and INTP don't have any letters in common, but if you take a look at cognitive functions it becomes much more apparent why these two types often get attracted to one another.

    ESFJ is Fe Si Ne Ti
    INTP is Ti Ne Si Fe, this is exactly same functions but in reverse, one person's inferior function is another person's leading, thus each is strong in the area where another is weak and can support their partner

    Some more descriptions of this pairing: How would you describe INTP-ESFJ duality?, ESFJ-INTP duality, Depictions of INTP and ESFJ, Tips for the INTP in attracting an ESFJ (LII=INTP, ESE=ESFJ)
