    The Performers and Writing

    Writing Personality: Spontaneous Joy

    he artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth,
    from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.—
    Pablo Picasso

    ESFP writers are positive and enthusiastic. They use humor and a sense of fun to foster harmonious interactions between people. They’re intensely aware of their physical surrounding and have an exuberant desire to experience life. They enjoy catchy phrases and are adept at using language to capture the essence of a moment.

    E: Extraversion preferred to introversion
    ESFPs get their energy from people and activity in their external world. Spending time alone can leave them listless and bored. They enjoy interacting with a large group of friends and acquaintances. They generally act before reflecting.

    S: Sensation preferred to intuition
    ESFPs are concrete thinkers, placing more trust in past experience than in flashes of insight. They’re more interested in sensory data than in the patterns perceived by the unconscious mind. ESFPs tend to be intellectually content—they want to enjoy the world.

    F: Feeling preferred to thinking
    ESFPs prefer to use their rational feeling function when making decisions. They place more emphasis on the effect that actions have on people than they do on adhering to the impersonal rule of logic. They tend to give other people the benefit of the doubt.

    P: Perception preferred to judgment
    ESFPs like to keep their options open. They enjoy beginning new projects and exploring opportunities as they arise. ESFPs think in terms of possibilities rather than likelihoods.

    Writing Process of the ESFP
    ESFPs may approach a writing project in the following ways:

    • Tend to have a talent for language, especially spoken language. They enjoy relating anecdotes that convey an emotional or sensory experience. Their personal voice resonates in their writing.
    • Gather a lot of material about a subject, particularly if it’s unfamiliar. When composing a first draft, they work best by brainstorming about whatever comes to mind. If they analyze as they go, it breaks their flow of ideas, and they can get stuck.
    • Develop their ideas by talking to others. To capture the conversation, use a voice recorder or ask the other person to take notes. Otherwise, you may not recognize a good idea in the moment, or you may forget about it before you get a chance to write it down.
    • Build their topic around concrete elements like quotations. This may be a good approach to help organize a first draft. During the revision process, add your own unique perspective to avoid relying too much on other people’s ideas.

    Potential Blind Spots of the ESFP
    ESFPs may experience the following pitfalls:

    • Have difficulty starting a project if they don’t have a clear sense of direction. Identify the goals of the piece and develop an organizing framework. This will help you generate ideas and avoid tangents. Focus on how the topic affects people and on the immediate actions they can take in response.
    • May procrastinate because writing is essentially an introverted activity. Be sure to schedule ample time for revision. The first drafts of ESFPs tend to be unfocused—full of ideas but without a unifying theme. Through subsequent drafts, you can isolate your best ideas and weave them together coherently.
    • Like to visually capture the emotion of an experience by using italics, capitalization, and exclamation points. This can be effective in humor but is rarely appropriate in other forms of writing. Rely instead on your distinctive voice and flair for language.
    • May take too lighthearted an approach to a serious subject, or may fail to consider both sides of an argument. Ask a writer friend to review the piece. Request that the feedback be very specific.
