    Hi, ESFPs.

    1. What do you value the most?

    2. How do you learn the best?

    3. What/who excites you or bores you the most, of subject or personality type?

    Hard to say. I like to feel good but I value a sense of community, understanding, play.
    2. How do you learn the best?
    By doing.
    3. What/who excites you or bores you the most, of subject or personality type?
    Excited by fun ideas, things I haven't done before, things that would be stimulating to my senses like rock-climbing or bungee jumping. Can't really say if a certain personality type excites me. I like ENFPs and I like others too. INTPs are fun. ISFJs and ISTJs are fun. Not sure I have met all the types.

    Boring. Dry theory with no application unless applied for humor. Too much stability. Feeling invisible.

    INFP - The Idealists

    Just wanted to say, for the bad rep that ESFPs sometimes get, I'm close to two of them (and related to one) and find them to be delightful people. :)

    I do have a question though. One of my ESFP friends likes to come to me with her problems and such, and sometimes I have advice, and sometimes I don't. But usually when I say something to her, she doesn't seem to listen (or maybe it's just that I don't quite understand what she's saying, so my advice isn't that relevant). Is she coming to me just because she needs someone to talk to, rather than looking for advice? Maybe she just needs to express herself and needs someone to listen?

    I guess what I'm trying to ask is, how do I respond to her? I don't always know what she's looking for. And if she does want advice, what's the best way to communicate it to her? (It's specifically about her ex, who she is afraid of having to see everyday once school starts up again.)

    It is hard to generalize about what she is trying to get, but I think usually when I go to people with a problem - if I want solutions I ask for them. So if I do not come out with a request for solutions, then I just want them to listen - and maybe console me a bit.

    So next time ask her does she want advice or is she venting. If she wants advice, be clear, direct and concise. Also explain why you suggest so and so. For me, I need the explanation for the idea, not just the idea.

    Chances are she is just processing/venting, though.

    I value my family the most. They are the world to me. So it's important for me to have time with them, to call them and so on. And to try to be a good mum to my daughter.

    And I value kindness at heart. Empathy. Those sort of things.

    2. How do you learn the best?

    By doing, definetly. By discussing. And most important, when I have a genuine interest for the subject.

    3. What/who excites you or bores you the most, of subject or personality type?
    Excites me: All sorts of things. Almost everything. Emergency situations excites me in a way. I've been thinking about if its weird of me.

    Personlatiy type: anyone could excite me.

    bores me: when nothing happens. Slow meetings where people are just talking and talking and talking without deciding anything.

    Is your one up-manship related to your need for attention?

    If it is weird then I am weird with you. I get a big charge from a crisis also.

    I don't really do that sort of thing, so I can't answer this one. But I can see how if someone is doing that, it would be for attention.

    Well, for example, I have this coworker. I've been working with her for two years but I don't know her well--nor am I the kind of person that people naturally confide in. But I felt comfortable confiding in her something a bit personal about my past. She immediately jumps back in with, "well, I have an obsession with my weight. When I was 17 I had an eating disorder." I mean, WTH would you ever reveal something like that to someone unless you were looking for attention? Not to mention, eating disorders in and of themselves are a byproduct of attention-seeking.

    Sorry if this is asked already on a different thread.

    What do ESFPs think of INFJs? (Either as friends or partners)

    Just out of curiosity that's all.
    I met this guy on holiday, we clicked really really well (possible relationship) and still keep in contact now.
    Although, I'm wary/scared of his less interest in long term things/commitment.
