    Can an ESFP be pushy? I have a coworker who I think might be an ESFP. She is very in-your-face sometimes, to the point where I just want to tell her to get out.

    A lot of us are - that seems to be the stereotype - but we don't necessarily mean to be, or at least I don't mean to be. I've noticed that I like to push my ideas/preferences on people during a certain hangout and I'm not very flexible to suggestions from others. Like, I'll often push the movies I've seen, or that I want to see, when it's movie night, or I often suggest the restaurants we go to. But I have been suggested certain places/things by my friends which I've come to love, so there is some flexibility.

    Saying ESFP's are pushy is like saying INFP's hate most people; it's not necessarily true, although it's understandable why a person would assume it.

    I don't think I'm pushy at all, but I'm sure an ESfp can be.

    That sounds a lot like my coworker--she's very opinionated but she is very averse to criticism--something that this ISTJ thrives on. We are hierarchically on the same level, but she thrives on being on the center of attention, especially from the boss; I'm just the quiet person in the background.

    ... I'm not quite sure how criticism factors in, though. Nobody really likes criticism, or at least, destructive/harsh criticism. I think there are opinionated/pushy people in any personality type.

    are ESFP generally sexually promiscuous? (open relationships, one night stand, sexbuddies, friends with benefits and such)

    how to make a sticky thread?

    Speaking for myself, as an ESfp, I am, or rather, I have been, sexually promiscuous.

    I just feel a very strong urge to be physically close to someone. I never had a fuck buddy though. I fall in love too easily and do I like someone enough to sleep with them on more than one occasion, then I know I will fall in love.
    Wouldnt like to have an open relationship either. Am way to sensitive and possessive for that sort of thing.

    Im promiscuous in the sense that I've had many ONS. If I'm in a relation I prefer to be a shagadelic sex maniac with the one I love .

    INTJ - The Scientists

    How do you feel about INTJs? I've only met 2 ESFPs (that I know of) and they were awesome, but very inconsistent with communication. I could never decide whether that was just their personality or if they really didn't like being around my INTJness.

    One of my closest friends is an INTJ! I like being around him because he laughs at everything and is a calming presence. He's kinda like an anchor to me. But it's not strange for us to go a few days (or weeks) without talking.
