"... like their first cousin, the ENFP, both ESFP males and females can have a life long struggle with weight control. The combination of their preferences leads them to eat when they are happy, when they are sad, when someone new walks into the room, and whenever."
Type Talk At Work, Otto Kroeger, p. 354
The only ESFP I've ever met was overweight, out of the 5 ENFPs I know one went through bulimia and anorexia and the other is severely overweight, another was professionally into sports so no prob and yet another is overweight.
Can you relate and is it possible such minute details as eating habits to be type determined???
EDIT: Completely unrelated.
People complain that ENTP descriptions are too positive.
Not so in this book. If anything my type is depicted as the biggest looser of all 16 types.
This is how the paragraphs begin:
A marked weakness
Another significant downside
Still another serious flaw
Such modifiers were not used for the other types :(
And when the last one starts positive with the 1st couple of words, it goes "However, liabilities ..."
nice. This is the second most depressing ENTP description ever (the most depressing one is the socionics).
