ESFJs are most comfortable learning when:
♠ engrossed in short ‘here and now’ activities such as competitive teamwork tasks, role-playing exercises ♠ they are in the limelight or a position of high visibility e.g. they can ‘chair’ meetings, lead discussions, give presentations ♠ involved with other people e.g. discussing ideas, solving problems as part of a team ♠ there is an obvious link between the subject matter and a problem or opportunity on the job ♠ shown techniques which achieve obvious practical benefits, e.g. in saving time, making a good first impression, dealing with awkward people ♠ they can try out and practise techniques with coaching and feedback ♠ exposed to a model they can copy, e.g. a respected boss or an expert with a proven track record ESFJ’s are least comfortable when:
♠ involved in a passive role, e.g. listening to lectures, , explanations, statements of how things should be done, reading, watching ♠ required to assimilate, analyse and interpret lots of data ♠ required to engage in solitary work, e.g. reading, writing, thinking on their own ♠ the learning is abstract and theoretical and not related to an immediate need or practical benefit ♠ expected to act without clear guidelines or opportunities for planning or practice ♠ they can’t see sufficient benefit from the learning activity, i.e., shorter meetings, standardisation, greater efficiency.
