    The Caregiver

    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.

    By Reuben McNew [ENTp]

    Lovers of people, children, and all things pleasant, ESFjs thrive within face of the foundation of culture, structure, and organization. As ethical entertainers, many posess talents and abilities delightful to the eye and pleasant to the mind. If one type was to define the true meaning of love and friendship, it would be the ESFj.

    ESFJ types have an innate drive to care for others. They are particularly motivated by their interactions with the people in their lives. They're predisposed to making themselves available in a supportive capacity during times of grief, joy, hardship, or celebration. Their pragmatism leads them to judge circumstances based upon practicality and they are averse to spending time pontificating about theory. ESFJs have an enormous capacity for caring about the well-being of others. But, their natural partiality to supporting people is often at odds with their constantly morphing value system.

    These, too, are the original "rescue the perishing" people, thinking that if enough time, enough energy and caring is given, anyone can be "saved". They trust their ability to persuade and will act upon their beliefs that they can, indeed, persuade to "do better".
