ESFJ Introduction

Extraversion. Sensing. Feeling. Judging

ESFJs are sociable, energetic and responsible individuals. They enjoy organizing resources to achieve their given tasks on schedule. They are conscientious and responsible, not easily missing details and at the same time considerate towards people. They are tactful, sensitive and caring towards people, often putting the needs of others ahead of their own.

“Is there something I can help with?”

ESFJs value their relationships highly. They are warm, thoughtful and feel a sense of duty for the well-being of their loved ones.

They are highly loyal friends who will stand by their friends and family in times of need.

Often, when they perceive that help is needed, they will go ahead to extend their hand, even though at times none was asked for.

This is one source of disappointment for them: They expect likewise from their peers but often don’t see it reciprocated.

Being super sociable, ESFJs have a wide business and acquaintance network. They have a great desire for harmony, and will avoid conflict, sometimes even necessary ones. When hurt or offended, they tend to keep resentment to themselves rather than confront the situation immediately.

“Let’s get it settled, shall we?”

ESFJs are organized and planned. Their schedules are usually full of social appointments and business meetings. Their finances are planned well, and they likely budget their money carefully to be spent responsibly.

Sometimes their desire to organize their time and other people may get on others’ terms, who feel ESFJs are overbearing or imposing.

“I’m not good enough.”

Their Thinking (T) is the weakest of their mental functions. This means that under stress: their intuition function may come out in an undeveloped or a childish manner.

They may become critical of themselves; questioning their competence when being put under excessive pressure.
