ESFPs are scouts, explorers, civilians, and reporters. They are performers and artisans. They act with high attention to their environment, responding quickly to any new problem or eventuality. They are open-minded and always on the move. They are social, service oriented, and humble. They study everyone around them in detail, learning about everyone’s quirks and characters. They are like dancers, always where people are. They are always looking for something for something, finding gifts in the moment that they can share with others.
Meet the ESFPs
The ESFP are very humble and polite in their self-expression. You are outspoken and sociable, warm, and affectionate. You quickly grow to love and appreciate others around you. You’re an independent spirit and you don’t really care much about what others think. You love to talk and to be around others. You enjoy big or large groups and social settings, and you want things to happen around you wherever you go. You’re playful and prefer fun and carefree social interactions over more work-oriented situations. As an ESFP, you’re competitive and you love to work out disagreements through your skill at work and in games. You know exactly what you want and you’re comfortable taking risks to get there.
You tend to be quick to trust and to share with others, freely expressing your thoughts and opinions with others. You freely share your knowledge and your beliefs with others, and you’re diplomatic and well in touch with others needs and quirks. You tend to connect with others unusually quickly. You live like a racecar, always forward, often in a fast manner, and it can be difficult for your friends and loved ones to keep track of everything happening in your life. You are down to earth and trust what you know and want. You are an objective decision maker and you go with your gut at all times – and you don’t need to discuss your gut with others. Your strong instincts are somewhat remarkable at times.
Because of your need for courtesy, to be in good health, and to value tradition, you tend to distrust those who are in discord with society. You think everyone should work hard to respect the natural order of things. ESFPs are confident in their own skills and abilities.
