You have slight preference of Feeling over Thinking (12%)
You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (56%)

Since I have taken this sort of test before I already knew that I was an ESFJ, but it is always so interesting to read the explanations. The quote I feel best describes me from all that was said is:
"The ESFJ takes their responsibilities very seriously, and is very dependable. They value security and stability, and have a strong focus on the details of life. They see before others do what needs to be done, and do whatever it takes to make sure that it gets done. They enjoy these types of tasks, and are extremely good at them."
I have noticed that I see what needs to be done before others. This is especially true when it comes to cleaning. I wouldn't neccesarily say that I enjoy those tasks, but I do consider myself pretty good at them. At least cleaning.
"ESFJs are people persons - they love people. They are warmly interested in others. They use their Sensing and Judging characteristics to gather specific, detailed information about others, and turn this information into supportive judgments. They want to like people, and have a special skill at bringing out the best in others. They are extremely good at reading others, and understanding their point of view. The ESFJ's strong desire to be liked and for everything to be pleasant makes them highly supportive of others. People like to be around ESFJs, because the ESFJ has a special gift of invariably making people feel good about themselves."
The part in this statement that I found interesting was the part about "understanding their point of view." To be honest I like thinking through what I would do if I were in that circumstance from either side of the equation. I would agree that I have a "strong desire to be liked and for everything to be pleasant" out of my hate for conflict.

In the bottom they tell you which fictional characters were ESFJ's and I found it funny that Monica from Friends was one. Adam has always told me that I am most like her on the show.

As usual it is strange to read statements that are generalized and to see how true they are of you. But it is also so very interesting to read about both your strengths and weaknesses.
