I really don't 'identify' with other people to begin with. I've been asked many times the classic 'who's your model in life' question and I just can't answer.
Don't take me wrong, I can like people of course, it's just that I don't identify with them. What I'm looking for when interacting is mainly novelty; so why should I look for people I identify with.
Identifying with people is often about expanding the safe zone, and I'm not shy so why should I do that.
So when it comes to 'doing things' i could say estp, but that's so very inaccurate in many situations.
I'd say entp is the type most similar to me.
Otherwise it's all about what what I'm doing at that moment. I can be estp, I can be intp, I can be enfp. *shrugs shoulders*

I am surprised that INTJ was not added to the mix since they have the identical succession of functions, with opposing attitudes: NTFS. I like ESPs, but at times they can be quite hard to deal with when too flighty. However ESTJs I truly enjoy since they are usually comfortable with themselves, thus allowing me to do my own thing. I think having the same function succession may be the reason (TSNF).

Very true. INTJ have the identical fx of NTFS, but I think the OP picked all combinations of types that's 1 letter away from ENTP. Does 1 letter make less of a difference than an identical (mirror) sequence of fx?
ESTP - I'ma, I'ma, I'ma hustla....
INTP - I wanna be sedated....
ENTJ - I AM THE POLICE. KING KONG AIN'T GOT NOTHING ON ME!
ENFP - I see skies of blueeeeee, and clouds of whiteeeeee......
If me personally, I'd say a toss up between ENFP and ENTJ, but knowing my brother (ENFP) and then the ENTJ's I've worked and lived intimiately with, I know I'm more like them than my brother. This could be because the closeness in my life with ENTJ's, or something else, I don't know, has "artificially augmented" my Te
But ENTP's generally, a stereotype one, I'd say would appear more similar to an ENFP. Specially male ENFP's and ENTP's can be hard to tell apart til you get to know them.

I've found a lot in common with ESFPs. Laughter, creativeness, curiosity and a visionary way of looking at life. The main difference is their willingness to be out there performing a lot (I think it's kind of "serving the public") and their subjectiveness in decision-making (versus taking everything and all opinions into consideration).
ENFPs have also something in common (outspokenness, willingness to take a stand in life) too, but I find them a lot more serious and not quite that creative.
