Pessoas deste grupo costumam ser sociáveis, cooperativas e afetivas. Suas decisões, explica Adilson, colocam as pessoas em primeiro lugar. “Eles se sentem motivados quando conseguem estabelecer e nutrir bons relacionamentos”, diz o professor.

A tendência a agir como o “paizão” do time faz com que o ESFJ leve o apelido de “provedor”. “São pessoas calorosas, que cuidam dos outros e promovem um ambiente amigável”, afirma o especialista.

No mundo do trabalho, sua especialidade é criar relações e eventos para a melhoria do clima organizacional. Além disso, são líderes por natureza: graças a seu carisma e simpatia, conseguem ter grande influência sobre o grupo.

Exemplos de carreira: consultoria, assessoria, relações públicas, educação física, comunicação com o mercado, política, entre outras.

Your personality type is ESFJ


The Caregiver

This personality type stands for:

Extraversion – Interaction with people motivates you to become more active.
Sensing – You tend to be more concrete than abstract.
Feeling – You tend to value personal considerations above objective criteria.
Judging – You tend to plan your activities and make decisions early.

Characteristic of ESFJ

ESFJs focus on the outside world and assess their experiences subjectively. They largely base their judgments on their belief system and on the effects of actions on people. ESFJs are literal and concrete, trusting the specific, factual information gathered through their physiological senses.
ESFJs project warmth through a genuine interest in the well-being of others. They are often skilled at bringing out the best in people, and they want to understand other points of view. They are serious about their responsibilities, seeing what needs to be done and then doing it. Generally proficient at detailed tasks, they enjoy doing little things that make life easier for others. They value tradition and the security it offers.
Easily hurt, ESFJs seek approval. They take pleasure in other people’s happiness. They give generously but expect appreciation in return. Sensitive to the physical needs of others, they respond by offering practical care. As expert people readers, ESFJs often adapt their manner to meet the expectations of others.

Notable ESFJs

A well-known individual whose behavior is consistent with ESFJ is Terry Bradshaw.

Strenghts and Weaknesses of ESFJ

Strenghts of ESFJ

  • Your open style of communication makes you attractive to the opposite gender.
  • You communicate your feelings to your partner very well.
  • You are a good observer. Thus you notice inner as well as outer changes in your partner.
  • You are able to deal with practical concerns of the household efficiently.
  • You are sensitive and concerned for your partner’s feelings.
  • You take care of your partner and your family.
  • You attach high importance to cultural norms and traditions, and expect your partner to do the same.
  • You are loyal to your partner and value a long-term relationship.

Weaknesses of ESFJ

  • You may hurt your partner by saying things to him/her without thinking.
  • You may dominate your partner.
  • You may focus on materialism and choose a partner based upon his/her wealth rather than his/her values.
  • You may place too much emphasis on your partner’s physical appearance.
  • You may frustrate your partner by using your feelings rather than logic to make decisions.
  • You may find it difficult to accept criticism, even though it may be constructive and justified.
  • You may overwhelm your partner by demanding constant attention and ignoring his/her need for space.
  • You may be rigid, inflexible and unwilling to consider your partner’s view.

Anticipating Relationship Challenges

Many relationship challenges relate to the personality types of the friends or partners.
For example, personality types INTJ (scientist) and ESFJ (caregiver) can anticipate challenges simply because of their dissimilarities. The scientist is interested in solving problems based upon logical thinking and tends to avoid social situations. The caretaker is interested in solving problems based upon feelings and is most comfortable in social situations. Both party may become annoyed and withhold the needed approval of the other party.
Neither the ESFJ personality type nor the INTJ personality type is wrong; it is just that the personality types do not match well and pose major challenges. Being consciously aware of these differences will help both partners anticipate and overcome these challenges.

Selecting your Partners and Friends

Personality types indicate which relationships likely will be successful or unsuccessful. The fact is that most people have successful relationships with persons of a similar personality type …the closer the similarity, the more successful the relationship.
How do we know this? Researchers studied large samples of successful friendships/relationships as well as unsuccessful friendships/relationships and compared the personality type of the people involved. They found that usually similar personality types have good and lasting friendships/relationships while opposite personality types incur many challenges.
There is an exception to this rule: for “love relationships” between boyfriend and girlfriend or husband and wife, opposites attract! However, “opposites” does not mean complete opposites such as INTP and ESFJ or ISFP and ENTJ. Rather only opposites on two dimensions can attract: the extraversion/introversion dimension as well as the judging/perceiving dimension. For example, INTP could be a good match with ENTJ but not a good match with ISFP.
There is little evidence and much speculation on why opposites on the extraversion/introversion dimension and the judging/perceiving dimension attract for love relationships. One theory is that we look to a romantic partner for balance and completion. We subconsciously know our personality type and look for a person to provide the qualities we lack. From a practical point of view, this makes sense.
We know what happens when two introverts or two extroverts get together: there is silence or chaos. Likewise, when two persons who like structure or two persons who like adventure get together: there is boredom or lack of security. It seems that a couple composed of an introvert and an extrovert and a person who is structured and one who is more adventurous are more successful.
But remember, this is true only of love relationships. In friendships and co-workers, the closer the personal type, the better the relationship.

Love Test

Love Style Test Results

Your predominant love style is Pragma!
However, nobody’s love type is pure. There are always several love styles that are present in varying degrees. Besides your predominant love style of Pragma, your overall love style is also composed of Ludus and Eros. The three other love styles, Agape, Mania and Storge, have only little importance in your love style composition.

Pragma 42%

Pragmatic lovers are practical.
Pragmatic lovers think rationally and realistically about their expectations of a partner, and select them as it they were comparison shopping. Pragmatic lovers want to find value in their partners and ultimately to work with them to reach a common goal.
Pragmatic lovers will stay away from infidelity to avoid adverse consequences, and carefully weigh the costs and rewards of a relationship. Pragmatic lovers view sex as a means of procreation, and view marriage and children as liabilities or assets.
The advantage of pragmatic love is practicality and realism. The disadvantage can be a lack of emotion. Pragmatic love should not be considered as negative type of love attitude. In collectivist culture where arranged marriage is practiced, pragmatic love is very common at the time of mate selection.

Ludus 30%

Ludic lovers are players.
More interested in quantity than quality in relationships, ludic lovers want to have as much fun as possible. Ludic lovers choose their partners by playing the field, and quickly recover from break-ups.
Ludic lovers tend to view marriage as a trap, and people of this love style are the most likely to be unfaithful to their partners. They have sex for pleasure and not for procreation. They regard sex as a conquest or a sport, and they engage in relationships because they see them as a challenge.
The advantage of this love style is the ease with which the person can get in and out of relationships. The disadvantage of this love style is the likelihood of infidelity. In its extreme form, ludic love turns into promiscuity.

Eros 27%

Erotic lovers are passionate lovers.
Erotic lovers can fall in love at first sight. They are very sensual and caring towards their partner. They will often pay attention to small details to make their partner happy.
They are physical lovers, and have intensive and satisfying sexual relationships. When they are with their loved one or thinking about them, they get extremely emotional.
The advantage of this love style is that it can be extremely strong and gratifying if it is reciprocated. Its disadvantage is that it is often not based on realism and may fade with time, making it easier for the relationship to break.

Love Type: “Pragma/Ludus/Eros” (PLE)

As the pie chart shows, your love style consists mostly of the following characteristics
  • Pragma – rational, sex as a means of procreation 42%
