ESFJ Mental Muscle Diagram ESFJ Mental Muscle Diagram

The dominant function of an ESFJ is the judging one of Feeling. This means you make decisions on the basis of personal values, are appreciative and accepting of people, enjoy company and seek harmony. You assess the impact of your decisions on others, are sympathetic or compassionate, and take a personal and friendly approach.

The judging Feeling function is extraverted. That is, Feeling is used primarily to govern the outer world of people and things, or actions and spoken words. You therefore tend to seek stable, harmonious relationships, and tend to adapt to the environment - taking on board those values that are held as important by friends and family, or society as a whole. You are likely to express the appreciation that you feel towards others, consider their feelings before your own. You may be sensitive to praise and criticism, and seek to conform to others' reasonable expectations.

The diagram represents how an average ESFJ uses all the functions. You can find out more about the diagram, and your personal, unique type dynamics, by completing our personality test.
