My roommate had to take the Myers-Briggs personality tests for one of her classes. She was showing me literature about her "type" and asked me if I knew what I am.

I took the Myers-Briggs in 2003, and while a lot has happened in 4 years, after reading this I am pretty sure I am still an ESFJ to the bone. Click that link if you want to know how what makes me tick (or what annoys the crap out of me). Here's highlights:

Why I Hate Change: "All ESFJs have a natural tendency to want to control their environment."
Why I Am Scared To Break Rules: "ESFJs respect and believe in the laws and rules of authority, and believe that others should do so as well."
Why I Obsess Over My Best Friends: "Relationships are central to their lives, and they put forth a great amount of energy into developing and maintaining their close interpersonal relationships. They expect the same from others."
Why I Love To-Do Lists: "Responsible and practical, they can be counted to take care of day-to-day necessities."
Why I Am Obsessed With Auburn and CWE: "Most ESFJs have a strong need to 'belong' - whether it be to institutions or traditions, or family units."
Why I Like Comments On My Blog: "They need a lot of positive affirmation to feel good about themselves."

Eye-opening! And that's just a start. I've written before about how hard it is for me to not get my feelings hurt or to let go expectations of others and that summary picks up on that as well. I don't necessarily like admitting to that, but you know what? Just like I learned in kindergarten, I am "fearfully and wonderfully made!" (Psalm 139:14) Thank goodness!

And for the record, I don't do astrology/horoscopes, but I cannot deny that I fit the Gemini bill pretty well too.


  1. i am so confused by the commenting, it keeps putting the same comment i made on one of your other blogs up for every time i try to post. but whatever. anyways, i'm pretty sure i'm an esfj also (although i lost my literature about it from the career office, is there anything in the profile about losing things?) so don't feel alone :)

  2. what are you? a leo? a taurus?
