    The Lovable ESFp

    By Jacob R. Zemon [ISTp]
    'It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the pebble in your shoe.'
    ~ Muhammad Ali

    You can usually spot an ESFp with a big smile on their face. They like to give the appearance of “welcoming” others in. ESFps enjoy making friends with everyone, even approaching shy people, getting them out of their shell. They enjoy telling jokes and spreading warmth. ESFps generally have balanced, well-coordinated movements. Some ESFps have more of a waddle when they walk.

    Trust and understanding are big to the ESFp. They never try to judge people’s feelings or criticize them, but dishonesty is something that they won’t tolerate. ESFps may not show praise outright or shower people with excessive attention, but they believe more in feelings being understood, and want people ...

    Motivator Presenter: ESFP

    The ESFP is a type that is concerned with the here and now and gives little thought to what happens later. Others often see them as dizzy or hyper. They don’t get wrapped up in making plans and that can be tough on friendship.
    In love relationships they push for excitement and are often viewed as shallow due to their quick surface reactions. This is not true. It’s the difficulty in getting deep that comes from always dealing in the moment.
    The family is another happening opportunity for the ESFP. They are not likely to be big planners for the family events but will always try to make them entertaining. If confrontation arises they will often vacate away from the epicenter of the discontent.

    The ego and desire for attention and action make the ESFP a nice match for the arts and theatre professions. Jobs that offer instant gratification and offer any type of public service ...
