I freakin love personality quizzes. I like the ones that tell me how I am because I was born on a certain day or because of my sign or because I pick certain answers. I like them all. It’s just fascinating and sometimes certain characteristics are really true!
I recently took this Jung Typology test and found out that I’m an ESFJ. I think it’s pretty accurate. 🙂
Portrait of an ESFJ – Extraverted Sensing Feeling Judging
(Extraverted Feeling with Introverted Sensing)
As an ESFJ, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system. Your secondary mode is internal, where you take things in via your five senses in a literal, concrete fashion.
ESFJs are people persons – they love people.
The ESFJ’s strong desire to be liked and for everything to be pleasant makes them highly supportive of others. People like to be around ESFJs, because the ESFJ has a special gift of invariably making people feel good about themselves.
The ESFJ takes their responsibilities very seriously, and is very dependable. They value security and stability, and have a strong focus on the details of life.
ESFJs are warm and energetic. They need approval from others to feel good about themselves. They are hurt by indifference and don’t understand unkindness. They are very giving people, who get a lot of their personal satisfaction from the happiness of others. They want to be appreciated for who they are, and what they give.
With Extraverted Feeling dominating their personality, ESFJs are focused on reading other people. They have a strong need to be liked, and to be in control. They are extremely good at reading others, and often change their own manner to be more pleasing to whoever they’re with at the moment.
They usually have very well-formed ideas about the way things should be, and are not shy about expressing these opinions
All ESFJs have a natural tendency to want to control their environment. Their dominant function demands structure and organization, and seeks closure.
ESFJs at their best are warm, sympathetic, helpful, cooperative, tactful, down-to-earth, practical, thorough, consistent, organized, enthusiastic, and energetic. They enjoy tradition and security, and will seek stable lives that are rich in contact with friends and family.
