ISFP relationships may take a while to blossom but the results are often well worth the wait.This Myers-Briggs personality is made up of four primary traits: introverted, sensing, feeling, and perceiving. " ESFPs love people, excitement, telling stories and having fun.
(One ISFP friend has become nonambulatory within the past few years.
He will still, on impulse, leave home in the middle of the night and go to Las Vegas or wherever, regardless of the difficulties of his physical condition.) ISFPs may be quite charming and ingratiating on first acquaintance, flowing with compliments which may (or may not) be deserved.
They are attuned to what is trendy and popular, willing to modify their appearance accordingly.
Of course, this might be partly attributable to their extraverted personality, as well as their concern for keeping up their appearance.
SPs sometimes think and talk in more of a spider-web approach. ESFPs are attracted to new ideas, new fashions, new gadgets, new ______. Their down-to-earth, often homespun wit reflects a mischievous benevolence. Some can be identified by the twenty minute conversation required to ask or answer a simple factual question.
Several of my ESFP friends jump from thought to thought in mid-sentence, touching here or there in a manner that's almost incoherent to the listener, but will eventually cover the waterfront by skipping on impulse from one piece of information to another. Perhaps it's the newness of life that attracts ESFPs to elementary education, especially to preschool and kindergarten. (ESFP stands for Extravert, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving and represents individual's preferences in four dimensions characterising personality type, according to Jung's and Briggs Myers' theories of personality type.) The dominant function of ESFPs is concerned with the reality that is perceived through the senses.
This type's prime directive is to examine the tangible through taste, touch, sight, feeling and hearing.
ESFPs' need for new experiences surely results from this function.
Many eagerly plunge into new fashions, avant garde experiences, 'hip' trends--some even setting the trends.
More in touch with the reality of their senses than their INFP counterparts, ISFPs live in the here and now.
Rather, because of their dominant function, Extraverted Sensing (Se), they seem to have a natural eye for beauty, style, and aesthetics.
