One more scenario to hopefully destroy the thread.
A picture of my daily life in school, (which mind you, I hate.)
Given, I'm smarter than most people I know of all types- ESFP or not. My motivations and actions are still highly Se driven.
It's a night before the final in whatever topic. We know that we can get out of class as soon as we're done the exam. There's something good on TV, I haven't studied or listened much in class. So, if it's a completely theoretical topic I just bullshit and educated guess my way through the test and ace it. No studying. A more scientific topic, a little more difficult. Read through all notes once. Skim the chapter. Two hours tops of memorizing and I go back to TV. Get up the next morning, go to class, skim notes one more time. Finish test first, (I often finish first) so I can go downtown on this beautiful day to get a latte.
News flash, the entire plan was a giant act of someone with high intelligence without motivations to look intelligent. From the ability to learn the information or connect information and make educated guesses, to the ability to make studying as efficient as possible to get on to other things, to the ability to whip through a test quickly and still ace it. That's all pure, simple problem solving and learning quickly. While people take notice of this, it was not my intention, (or any ESFP's intention) to try to appear as if I'm any better than the rest in that department. I do happen to be better in that department, but the final motivation was to enjoy my latte on a beautiful bright sunny day. That's what it looks like to be a smart ESFP.
