    I had never had opportunity to learn much about ESFJ since (AFAIK) I don’t know any personally. But this interview drove home to me that I very much want one in my life to learn from and get advice. Just last night, after a 4+ hour introspection session (trying to figure out why I got triggered and shut down during a conversation with my wife), I came to an deeply buried insight that Jonathan so brilliantly summarized in a single sentence when I listened this morning. That is that you need to be accepted by the group for the group to receive your help. I have trouble receiving criticism, not because I’m pig headed, but because it reminds me of how people I love don’t see how much I care about them and want to help them. And if they can’t know that I care, they won’t care what I know, or how I might be able to provide some insight that might help them. At this point in my life (43yo), while I still get my energy from Ti, my fulfillment and what I crave is the connection and relationship of Fe. But it always feels elusive and fragile, even with those I’m closest to. God bless my ISFP wife, she tries, and she is a champion for putting up with me. It’s resources like Personality Hacker that give me a language and model through which I even have a hope of seeing her fully and being seen fully by her.

    Thank you, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the interviews!
