ESFP: Entertainer

The ESFP radiates attractive warmth and optimism. They are smooth, witty, charming, and fun to be with. They make good performers, they are successful in public relations, and they love talking on the phone. 13% of the total population.

ESFPs’ need to socialize with others may create difficulties at work or school. Their tendency to over-emphasize subjective data can cause problems in structured situations. Like all SP's, ESFP's resist regulations and they can become quite defiant when their sense of freedom is violated. Their disregard for standard procedures will take the form of passive resistance and ESFP's usually develop many skills to annoy the people they blame for their loss of liberty. ESFP's are prone to neglecting time-limits and situations requiring organized goals; under such circumstances, ESFP's will become bored and restless, and will quickly develop a feeling of emptiness.

If a stressful situation endures, ESFP's will respond against others by mistreating themselves and acquiring habits that are self-destructive. Feeling empty, restless, and bored, ESFP's may experience a regression of their skills, graceful movements, and maturity. ESFP's penalize those responsible for obstructing their freedom while, at the same time, they restore excitement back into their own lives. Having not obtained freedom through appropriate behavior, ESFP's overwhelmed with stress will behave in ways that are unproductive to themselves and others.
