ESFPs primarily see human potential in the world around them. You love people and new experiences. ESFPS are lively, fun, and like to be the center of attention. You live in the here and now and enjoy the excitement and drama of life.

Strong interpersonal skills are perhaps the most salient characteristic of an ESFP and they may regularly find themselves in the role of mediator or mediator. The individual and personal basis on which ESFPs make decisions tends to make them friendly people who care about the wellbeing of others. They are considered generous and warm-hearted. You also have a very sensitive perception of others. Often times, they will notice something is wrong with a friend before the other will notice and offer understanding and help. ESFPs may not be the best advisors, especially since they have little interest in theory and planning, but they care about others and their well-being.

The ESFP itself is a spontaneous and optimistic person who loves to have fun. However, if he does not reflect sufficiently rationally on his behavior, an ESFP can be prone to self-indulgence. Immediate satisfaction is then more important than duties and responsibilities. Sometimes ESFPs also ignore the long-term consequences of their actions.

The world is a stage for the ESFP. You like to be in the spotlight and enjoy the attention. You put off a show for others all the time to keep them entertained and happy. They love to stimulate the senses and feelings of others and they have the talent to do so too. They would love to celebrate life as an eternal party where they are the happy hosts themselves.

If you can only play yourself, you are not an actor.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

ESFPs love people, and they are loved too. One of her greatest gifts is to accept everyone for who he is. They are optimistic and enthusiastic and, in fact, like almost everyone. An ESFP is always kind and generous to friends - and as a friend, just about anyone is treated. However, once you have lost your way with the ESFP, it will cultivate your dislike. In such situations, ESFPs are sometimes capable of downright hatred.

When under pressure, ESFPs can feel overwhelmed by negative thoughts and potential problems. As die-hard optimists, they occasionally have difficulty dealing with setbacks. They try to counter negative thoughts by looking for simple, general solutions. These simplified explanations sometimes get to the heart of the problem and sometimes don't - but they help the ESFP deal with the problem.

ESFPs are mostly practical people, although they don't like structure and routine. They prefer to go with the flow and, in case of doubt, rely on their improvisational skills. You learn most efficiently through practical experience. They feel less comfortable with books and theories. ESFPs who neglect their intuitive side sometimes avoid situations that require abstract thinking, are very complex or ambiguous. This can also lead to problems in school. On the other hand, however, ESFPs do particularly well when it comes to learning with and through others.

ESFPs have a distinct sense of beauty and aesthetics, as well as form and function. If they have the means, ESFPs like to surround themselves with beautiful things in an artfully decorated home. They value objects for their beauty. ESFPs also like to enjoy the finer things in life, such as good food and good wine.

The ESFP is a good team player. He does not cause problems or complaints and always strives for himself and others to have as much fun as possible. A suitable career for an ESFP requires his extraordinary interpersonal skills and lets him combine ideas into concrete plans. Since they are lively people who love new experiences, a job should also include a sufficient amount of variety.

ESFPs tend to feel strongly connected to other people. You develop relationships with children or animals that are more intimate than those of many other people. ESFPs are fond of animals and close to nature.

ESFPs love life and know how to have a good time. When they're having fun, they inspire others and they are always a pleasure to be around. You are flexible, adaptable, open-minded, and kind-hearted. ESFPs have the special gift of enjoying the moment, but they have to be careful not to forget about tomorrow.
