    Wow! Hearing Jonathon speak, really brought home the point to me of how the journey to where we belong is in a balance of knowing ourselves and losing ourselves. What a beautiful person and interview this was to illustrate this point so well. As he spoke he brought my walls down, that I didn’t know ere up. He was very inspirational and brought a sense of comfort to me. I don’t even understand it, the reaction I am having within myself but I feel like a path has opened up within myself of better understanding around the connection between the group and being one of the group. How to help yourself help the group you must know yourself first so you can better understand how to manage yourself to serve others. This allows yourself to be in true service to others. Understanding yourself is not selfish, and it is a process that evolves over the the years with maturity. But ultimately what I heard from Johnathon was that when we know who we serve and that who we serve is what our goals are in service to and not the other way around, we can bloom to become our best selves and be the example that others so desperately need to witness in order to become their best selves. I think the world could truly benefit from more of us leaning in to knowing ourselves so we can be ourselves and excel at our own super powers how Johnathon has. Thank you Personality Hacker for giving us tools and interviews like this to help us on our journey! I am so grateful for you guys and everything you do!

    Jonathan is awesome! If we ever met we would be friends. I totally get you man! I’m ENFJ and feeling men really are a rare bunch. We rock like no other men in mentoring, coaching, teaching and leading groups. You go, you’re great!

    This was really great for me, as I have worked closely with my ESFJ boss for 8 years now (and I am INFJ). This landed really true for my experience with her, and I find her to be almost superhuman with the amount of work she can take on, and how quickly she can learn new things. I am curious about the competitive piece that was mentioned. She is incredibly competitive & Jonathan says he is not. Does this relate to type, or environmental factors are in play?

    Hi, Sabrielle – That would have been a typo. The 3 Year Old (inferior) function for ESFJs is Introverted Thinking (Accuracy). Introverted Sensing (Memory) is the Copilot (auxiliary) function.

    Thanks for asking for clarification!

    I have greatly enjoyed listening to your podcasts. Just one question I have for this podcast, in your email notifying me of this new podcast you classified both co-pilot and 3 year old as the Memory function. Is that accurate? Or is it supposed to be a different function?
    Thank you for your time and effort on this material!
