Without delving into the core of the ESTp's personality, a person of this type may seem like a 'party animal,' constantly seeking out the admiration of others by continuously showing off. Stereotypically, we are some of the most promiscuous, reckless, and uncaring people in the Socion. But there is so much more about the ESTp that couldn't be further than what appears on the outside.

    First and foremost, one must realize that ESTps have motivations behind all of their actions, whether concious or not, or for the benefit of themselves or others.

They learn about the world in a very firsthand way – with all of their senses fully engaged. ESTPs are eager to try anything and often take physical risks that keep their parents gasping for breath.

    The ESTP loves to be the center of attention. They also live for the moment. Difficult for friends sometimes because they will almost never plan and view it as a waste of time. Their lack of order is difficult for others to deal with.

    ESTPs are outgoing, straight-shooting types. Enthusiastic and excitable, ESTPs are "doers" who live in the world of action. Blunt, straight-forward risk-takers, they are willing to plunge right into things and get their hands dirty. They live in the here-and-now, and place little importance on introspection or theory. The look at the facts of a situation, quickly decide what should be done, execute the action, and move on to the next thing.
