An insightful journey into personality
The enthusiasm and gregarious nature of the ESFP is palpable and infectious. They are naturally drawn to people and because of their fun loving nature people are drawn to them.
Being all round entertainers, ESFP's are fun to be around. They work to engage everyone around then and excel at bringing laughter and playfulness, although at times this behavior might be considered loud and excessive.
ESFPs are constantly looking to engage the senses by trying new things. They are keen to take their friends along for the ride and are disappointed if this enthusiasm is not shared.
ESFPs are popular because they are friendly and avoid either judging or controlling. They have an enhanced capacity for empathy, and also the capacity to sense when all might not be well with their friends. Observing their friends' needs and offering assistance whenever they can is one more reason why they are so popular. In the face of disapproval though it's a different story altogether; in circumstances such as these the ESFP may act stubbornly or form unecessary judgements.
In addition to being warm and treating everyone as a friend, ESFPs are generous with their time and money.
ESFPs have strong inter-personal skills and are always looking to play the mediating role, without imposing their beliefs or trying to solve issues by themselves.
ESFPs establish strong social connections and have a keen memory for things that concern their friends. They have an affinity for attention and affection and generally have a good time with everyone even when doing the simplest things.
ESFPs dislike being alone but this is rarely an issue because they adapt well with many groups of people.
They enjoy dealing with people in the present moment and give without inhibitions. This form of social nature may lead to overreach when it comes to accepting invitations and ESFPs may end up becoming overwhelmed by commitments.
