ESFP – Enthusiastic Improviser
ESFPs (Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving)( also known as Performer, Promoter, Artisan Artist, Entertainer, SEE, Napoleon) are fun, vivacious, charming and spontaneous. Their ability to entertain goes well beyond being the ultimate party guest. Natural storytellers and performers, ESFPs will never miss the opportunity to entertain – whether that be at home, at school or at work. No other personality type seizes the day quite like ESFPs. Enjoying people, food, places, and experiences at the highest level, ESFPs have an irresistible joie
de vivre. They possess a playful, slightly mischievous sense of humor that is lighthearted and open. That, along with their warm and friendly demeanor, makes ESFPs particularly popular among their peers.
Their senses play a critical role in their lives and so, ESFPs love to surround themselves with luxury – pleasing colors, smells, and textures. This translates into all areas of their existence – from their looks to the way they decorate their homes.
ESFPs like to keep busy all the time. Be it sports, social gatherings, hobbies, or other activities – the ESFP is not one to stay on the couch for long. Their insatiable need for new and special experiences provides them with the energy and enthusiasm needed for keeping constantly on the move.

Not that ESFPs need much help with that but here are some tips:
You know how to work entertainment magic, so use it to its full potential when making friends.
2. Let people know the real you
While you are very open and talkative, you also like to keep discussions lighthearted by avoiding shaky territory like deeply personal stories or negative events. To some that can make you seem a tad superficial. Let your opinions be heard, even if they might prove to be unpopular.
Although the outside world is so thrilling and full of wonders, it still is important to remember to introspect from time to time. Doing it allows you to better know and understand yourself and will give you a much needed break from being constantly on the go.
4. Accept others as they are
Your boundless joy and enthusiasm might be exhausting for more introverted types, but that doesn’t mean you can’t befriend the very same people. Pay attention to their needs and you will be able to win them over in no time.
