I've given up trying to figure out what I am. Mostly because what I see is vastly different from what other people tell me.

I think I am quiet, introverted and observant. I am the type that will sit in a meeting or at a party and listen to almost an entire conversation before I put in my two cents. I try not to speak unless I actually have something to say. I'm VERY laid back and easy-going. (this is the only thing others agree with me about).

Others have told me that I come off as confident, friendly and outgoing. I just don't see it. Some have said that I'm a little intimidating. Maybe it's the quiet part that spooks them. Dunno. My son tells me that I'm extremely intuitive and perceptive.

You have a sensitive personality?

I didn't know that.

I am sensitive too.

Well, maybe I exude more E than I.

Today, as I was walking back to the office from lunch, someone stopped and asked me directions. This happens to me all the time. Out of all the people streaming by, why me? I would think wearing a suit, or a coat and tie, would be off-putting. Personally, I would always ask info from someone in casual clothes before asking someone that's dressed up.

I am an ESFJ 'The Caregiver'.

I love people, I try to make people feel good about themselves, take my responsibilities VERY seriously and am very dependable, I am hurt my indifference and don't understand unkindness, and I have strong belief in justice and morality (this is what they tell me).
