    Is INFP-ESFJ friendship a thing?

    On Facebook, I asked my friends about their MBTI type. Most of my friends are INFP while I am a ESFJ. I'm still learning about the types connection (as I'm now starting to really study MBTI more) so this is interested me. Do INFPs and ESFJs really do get along in general? Personal experience, my best friend is INFP and most of the people I admire have been typed as INFP.

    Most of them... ?

    I don't think they are INFP's but i think they are just people who want to be INFP's..

    And the answer is yes: Everyone can be your friend, regardless of someone's type however it will be way more difficult to understand each other.

    Ooh yes, I believe it could make for a really wonderful friendship!! ( ´͈ ◡ `͈ )

    Not an INFP myself, but my boyfriend is, and all of his relationships were with FJ types of some sort - he really does fancy the Fe-Ti pairing, whether he realizes it or not! Even his closest friends are too, it is a bit curious to think on how he always seems to bump into these types without trying, maybe there's just such a strong pull we don't notice but can't help but submit to~

    For a while, we both believed I was ESFJ, for how openly emotional and bubbly I can be at times. I know he really loves that in a person, when they show their genuine feelings and thoughts, he values it a lot and I'm sure as an Fe-dom, you can be plenty expressive of everything you're experiencing! I know that Dreamers can be quite shy and need some coaxing out of their shell, and you have the perfect personality when it comes to making others feel at home with you, it's really no wonder that so many INFPs are your friend, they must love the kind of person that you are, and how you make them feel! <3

    I have an ESFJ friend! We're VERY different and have conflicting views on many things, but generally she brings out a good side to me that other people don't, and vice versa it seems. The main things I don't particularly like about her is that she can be very two-faced and has no problem telling me how I can be "better" which is sort of irritating. She's really motivating and inspires me to be happier and more optimistic. She's cool, I like her a lot :)

    I think it's possible but INFP-ENFJ friendship SEEMS golden, in my opinion.

    One of my closest friends is an ESFJ. We have a very good relationship and have been friends for years. Other ESFJs I've met have been pretty cool as well and I've found I usually will at least enjoy them a bit if I don't completely get along with them. Of course any type when healthy can be quite enjoyable, but I think even still some types tend to be more enjoyable for me than others on average, such as ESFJs for me.

    I've had far better friendships with ESFJs than I have had with ENFJs. I think the INFP-ESFJ friendship compatibility is often sorely overlooked because of the Sensor hatred in the MBTI community.

    There are ESFJs I don't get along with with - this brand of ESFJ does not appreciate INFPs and often doesn't 'understand' us and at times unknowingly belittles us (many times not even intentionally). The other type of ESFJ appreciates INFPs and their weirdness even if they may at times think are heads are up in the clouds.

    Have 2 ESFJ's as close friends for 10 years, we make a good trio for these reasons.

    Ne galore all the time, we can make a joke out of anything. With their domineering extroversion and Ti they tend to cover me in areas i lack, like in social situations they fill my silence and help direct conversion flow and move onto activities, while i sometimes leave cues idle. It gives a feeling of being looked after and supported.

    I think in return i inject a sense of carefree-ingenuousness (passion) to situations which lets everyone feed off freely, though thanks to them they create the conditions for me to do that.

    Some downsides.

    I'm completely open with them when sometimes they are not with me, which is frustrating at times.
    They can treat you differently in groups, like not respond to something you say like they usually do.
    They can be weirded out by us sometimes, leading to misunderstanding.
    They are too simple at times, and we're to 'heavy' at times.
