    Default What does a healthy ESFP look like?

    In contrast to this thread, where everyone bitches about the ESFPs in their life, please, tell me what you love about ESFPs, and what you perceive as attributes which a healthy ESFP would display.

    To quote myself from the other thread since I'm lazy...


    a healthy ESFP is kind, enjoys life, has the amazing ability to turn work into play by just deciding that they might as well enjoy it... laid back in a way, but not comatose, doesn't let bad things ruin their life, forgiving, openminded and independent*


    *healthy ones I know are fine with going hiking alone or taking a road trip... they're great with meeting new people and just getting along with everyone sort of... independent meaning not needy and clingy

    we also have a couple of cool ESFPs wandering around to check out, like shortnsweet and karen parker

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    A healthy ESFP is in touch with their Fi - they know what they value and they adhere to it instead of caving to hedonistic Se desires or being too distracted to even think about what they value. They take time to introspect to balance their ability to be living fully in the moment. They give consideration to ideas outside of their own experience, and they learn from others instead of having to touch the hot stove to know that it burns (so to speak). They explore things that are not merely fun, but which broaden their minds and understanding of the world, not just their own little world. They consider the longterm consequences of their actions; they think before they act. They don't let emotions of the moment swallow them up. They are often nurturing, warm, friendly, and generous. Healthy ESFPs are extremely likable and charming and can have a slightly hidden "intellectual" side that is very pleasant to discover (if they choose to develop & show it).
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    A healthy ESFP is someone who is vivacious, funny, constantly coming up with ideas, knows how to entertain, does not allow boredom and will make you smile.

    who cannot control their emotions, who wallow in sad
    memories and allow themselves to be provoked this
    easily -- weak people, in other words -- they stand no chance."
