ESFJ (Extroverted Sensing Feeling Judging) is one of the sixteen personality types from personality type systems based on C.G. Jung, which best known are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Keirsey Temperament Sorter and Socionics.

Referring to Keirsey ESFJs belong to the temperament of the Guardians and are called Provider.

In Socionics ESFjs belong to the club of the socials, the alpha Quadra and are named "Bonvivant" or Victor Hugo. Another notation for ESFj is ESE (which is an acronym for Ethical-Sensory Extratim, referring to the cognitive functions).

DescriptorEdit

ESFJs are friendly and have a strong desire to be liked by other people. They are very sensitive and are hurt when others are indifferent to them.
