Interviews are useful for familiarizing yourself with the visual and temperamental aspects of different types.  Notice Whitney’s facial expressions, eye movements, posture, mannerisms, speech patterns, and responses to others.  Over time, you will recognize similar patterns in other ESFJs.


Although not as immediately apparent as in interviews, a person’s type shines through in the work they create as well.  Notice the aesthetic, themes, and approach Whitney uses in her music.  What light can this shed on the mind of ESFJs in general?
