Hey, nice ESTP!
Don't worry keep texting even if you make 10k.
The type that cares about you sincerely... The type that is loyal

That ESTP female has nice tiddies, no lie
Anyway, it's really subjective or individual for a type to be your best friend. An INFJ might be rude toward you; an ENTP might be loyal for you until the very end. True friendship can happen regardless of types, and it's common for different types to be best friends despite incompatibility(-ies) expounded in the MBTI community. I'd say this: people sharing an axis or two can get along easily (e.g TPs and FJs on Fe-Ti) while not guaranteeing a higher chance of friendship considering that friendship is much more complex than that.

As in friend that is actually dependable:
100%: ENFJ, ESFJ, ESTJ, INTJ, ISFJ, ISTJ
50/50: ENTJ, ESFP, ESTP, INFJ, INFP, INTP, ISTP
Not: ENFP, ENTP, ISFP
A friend in need's a friend indeed,
A friend with weed is better,
A friend with breast and all the rest,
A friend who's dressed in leather.
The band Placebo has the solution, now we just need to figure out what type fits!
Yeah actually I've had two notable ESTP friendships, and one good work friendship, and they have all been great. Really laid back in general and really fun when we were together. All smart and hilarious people.
Anyway I didn't notice this was the MBTI forum so please forgive the apparent self-type-stroking but I was just going to say that I feel like my INFP 9w1 sp/sx friend is like the perfect friend, at least for me. She's independent, laid-back, and engaging. She likes to be adventuresome here and there but also has a good appreciation for time being as lazy as possible. She's also down-to-earth and responsible enough, but not too responsible. She has some deep personal interests (mostly language/culture) that she dedicates time and energy to and it's neat to engage about those with her, especially since she always has interesting updates in them when we get together. We have the kind of friendship where we won't see each other for 9 months and we'll message back and forth maybe twice and then we'll spend four days straight together. I take it she feels good about it too since we've been friends for such a long time.
That all said I definitely haven't had that ease of friendship with every INFP I've met so I don't think it's a type thing. The other two types that I've really had great friendships with are ISFP and ISTP... ISxPs just seem really easy for me to get along with in general. I really like the combination of independent, low-pressure, knowledgeable, and open-to-experience in friends and partners alike.
