ESFP (extraverted, sensing, feeling, perceiving) is one of the 16 personality types identified by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. People with ESFP personality types are often described as spontaneous, resourceful and outgoing. According to psychologist David Keirsey, the developer of the Keirsey Temperament Sorter, approximately four to ten percent of all people have an ESFP personality type.ESFP Characteristics
The MBTI looks at personality preferences in four key areas: 1) Extraversion vs Introversion, 2) Sensing vs Intuition, 3) Thinking vs Feeling and 4) Judging vs Perceiving. As you’ve probably already guessed, the acronym ESFP represents Extraversion, Sensing, Feeling and Perceiving.Extraversion: ESFPs enjoy interacting with other people and feel energized after they spend time socializing.Sensing: ESFPs prefer to focus on the here-and-now rather than thinking about the distant future. They also prefer learning about concrete facts rather than theoretical ideas.Feeling: ESFPs place a greater emphasis personal feelings rather than logic and facts when making decisions.Perceiving: ESFPs don’t spend a lot of time planning and organizing. Instead, they like to keep their options open.
Some common ESFP characteristics include:OptimisticPracticalSeeks out new experiencesSpontaneous and sometimes impulsiveLike facts and concrete informationDislikes theories and abstract informationGregariousEnjoys people and socializingFocused on the presentLike variety, dislikes monotony
ESFPs tend to be very practical and resourceful. They prefer to learn through hands-on experience and tend to dislike book learning and theoretical discussions. Because of this, students with ESFP personality types sometimes struggle in traditional classroom settings. However, they excel in situations where they are allowed to interact with others or learn through direct experience.
When solving problems, they trust their instincts and put trust in their own abilities to come up with a solution. While they are reasonable and pragmatic, they dislike structure, order and planning. Instead they act spontaneously and do not spend a great deal of time coming up with a plan or schedule.
As extraverts, ESFPs enjoy spending time with other people and have excellent interpersonal skills. They are good at understanding how other people are feelings and are able to respond to other people’s emotions in productive ways. For this reason, ESFPs can make good leaders and have a knack for mobilizing, motivating and persuading group members.
ESFPs are often described as warm, kind and thoughtful, making them popular and well-liked by others. ESFPs enjoy meeting new people, but they also have a thirst for new experiences. They are generally focused on the present and will often be the first person to try the newest ride at an amusement park or try out a new adventure sport.
