You write like an ESFP

Posted by

Was playing around with some personality websites (yes, I’m easily distracted by stuff like this) and found something called the typealyzer.  I’d give you the website but you can find it with a search engine and I think it is complete bs so why give them the traffic.  If you want a good laugh, give it a shot.  Yes, I’ve typed some of you in the village along with some of the other blogs I follow.  I think it only has like four choices because that’s all that came up.

So I write like an extrovert.  I thought that would only be true IF I USED ALL CAPITAL LETTERS.  (Sorry, bad joke)

Since there is a little bit of truth in every profile, I just thought it would be fun to see what they said about me.

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft beautiful textiles, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves. ESFPs love being around people and having new experiences. Living in the here-and-now, they often do not think about long term effects or the consequences of their actions.

I have no soft beautiful textiles, our house is mostly painted white.  We do have flowers from time to time and we burn scented candles.  No, I don’t like to plan ahead.  Love being around people???  Yeah, not so much.  Yes, I need some contact with other humans but only those I know and, even then, I have limits on how much I can take.

ESFPs live in the moment, experiencing life to the fullest. They enjoy people, as well as material comforts. Rarely allowing conventions to interfere with their lives, they find creative ways to meet human needs. Active types, they find pleasure in new experiences.

There’s that “enjoy people” thing again.  Find creative ways to meet human needs?  I don’t even know what the hell that means.  Find pleasure in new experiences.  Well, when I work up to nerve to actually have a new experience, I mostly enjoy them.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions. ESFPs are excellent team players, focused on completing the task at hand with maximum fun and minimum discord.

OK, I’ll go with the avoid conflict and rarely initiate confrontation.  Oh great, I am a manager.  Maximum fun and minimum discord??  Like a cheerleader?  Yeah, that’s SO me.  Teams are usually a pain in the ass where nobody can make a decision or get anything done.

But it has to be true, I found it on the internet!

While I like to see the best in people, it usually comes down to this.  I’ll take dogs any day and twice on Sundays!
