Description of ESFPs
The ESFP's motto is 'Let’s Have Fun.'

ESFPs are the “Performers” and the “Entertainers” of the 16 types.

Many of the other types like to perform, but ESFPs are driven to perform.

For ESFPs the world is a stage.

ESFPs are warm, caring and friendly.

ESFPs are quick to gain the friendship of others.

ESFPs prefer not to have to supervise or manage others.

ESFPs thrive on excitement, variety and new experiences.

ESFPs do not do well with routine, repetitive tasks.

ESFPs are very uncomfortable being alone for any length of time.

ESFPs like to be the center of attention.

ESFPs are able to establish report with their audience very quickly.

ESFPs are extraverted and outgoing.

They are down to earth, grounded, realistic and practical.

ESFPs prefer careers where:

  • Management provides specific and realistic directions
  • The work itself is personally meaningful and has value
  • Decisions and actions at work are in sync with your personal values
  • The work offers the opportunity to rapidly change direction and to respond to problems as they arise
  • The work is fun and allows for some spontaneity
  • The work allows you the opportunity to work with and meet a wide variety of people, rather than working alone most of the time
  • The work moves at a rapid, exciting pace
  • The environment and culture gives you opportunities to think through your ideas by talking about them
  • The job is action oriented and provides for a wide variety of activities rather than being highly focused on a few tasks
  • The work is realistic, down to earth, and practical, rather than abstract and theoretical
  • The work allows you to utilize your strong memory to recall details, facts, and people
  • The work is focused on the Now not the Future, on what is rather than what could be
  • The atmosphere allows you to be warm and caring and to build strong interpersonal relationships
  • The environment allows for freedom and flexibility and is loosely structured without too many rules
