Glitz, glamor, perfume, jewelry—all are a part of the ESFPs’ repertoire.It’s not that ESFPs are necessarily snobbish or narcissistic about their appearance.A staggering amount of ISFPs possess some form of artistic gift.They have a knack for crafting things that elicit an emotional response from people, be it artwork, music, or even dancing.SPs sometimes think and talk in more of a spider-web approach. ESFPs are attracted to new ideas, new fashions, new gadgets, new ______. Their down-to-earth, often homespun wit reflects a mischievous benevolence. Some can be identified by the twenty minute conversation required to ask or answer a simple factual question.Several of my ESFP friends jump from thought to thought in mid-sentence, touching here or there in a manner that's almost incoherent to the listener, but will eventually cover the waterfront by skipping on impulse from one piece of information to another. Perhaps it's the newness of life that attracts ESFPs to elementary education, especially to preschool and kindergarten. (ESFP stands for Extravert, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving and represents individual's preferences in four dimensions characterising personality type, according to Jung's and Briggs Myers' theories of personality type.) The dominant function of ESFPs is concerned with the reality that is perceived through the senses. Many eagerly plunge into new fashions, avant garde experiences, 'hip' trends--some even setting the trends.More in touch with the reality of their senses than their INFP counterparts, ISFPs live in the here and now.
ESFPs' need for new experiences surely results from this function.
Their impulses yearn to be free, and are often loosed when others least expect it.
The ISFP who continually represses these impulses feels 'dead inside' and may eventually cut and run.
And ESFPs love to entertain -- on stage, at work, and/or at home.
Social gatherings are an energy boost to these "people" people.
