When I took the Myer-Briggs personality test I was put into the ESFJ category, also known as the ‘provider’. ESFJ stands for Extraverted, Sensing, Feeling, and Judging. After doing a little more research on the Myer-Brigg personality test, I found there were a total of 16 different personality results one could score. I believe I was put into the right category especially after reading the personality description. After taking the personality test I found my personality to be categorized under the ‘provider’.
A ‘provider’ is a person who enjoys being in charge of events and occasions. They are good hosts or hostesses and are very good at entertaining others. Providers are people who work hard and see problems very easily. They are easily hurt and once hurt it is very difficult to contain their feelings. Providers often care what others think about them and they are self-conscious and also insecure. Relationships in general are very important to providers. Providers care about the health and wellbeing of others and they are considered to be the most sociable out of all the Guardians.
We providers are outgoing and very friendly. We do not have to know someone personally to strike up a conversation with them. We can hold conversations on any topic, and when we are alone for too long we become restless. According to Dr. David Keirsey, 10 percent of all people are providers which he claims to be a good thing. After taking the Myer-Briggs Personality Test I am very happy with the results I received. They fit me well and were very accurate. It put my personality more into perspective. It also made me realize some of my downfalls.
