    I realize these descriptions are from your point of view, but since your assessment seemed a little harsh, I want to give my comments about ESFP's I know.

    I am good friends with some ESFP's, and they are not illogical. They are just better at using their thinking abilities in practical, everyday situations than they are at sitting around theorizing about abstract concepts.

    They do crave attention, but I think it's in the same way that you as an INTP might crave a good debate. Although you probably like people noticing your stellar intelligence, your main reason for debating is (hopefully) for interesting discussion, knowledge, insight, ideas, etc. Mature ESFP's that I know enjoy being the center of attention, but their main goal is to have fun and include others in their fun. It makes them feel great to know that they got other people to goof off or laugh out loud. They feel like the world is a better place when they can cause this reaction in others. They don't all just exhibit crazy antics because they want to show off.

    The mature ESFP's I know do not fit this description, (although one of them did when he was in high school.) They are very capable of making decisions based on rational thinking, and can reign in their emotions when necessary. They are also able to plan wisely and avoid feeling-based mistakes that might cause problems in the future.

    Sounds like a young esfp.

    ESFPs are some of my favorite people.. the healthy ones anyway. Unhealthy ESFPs are craaaazy. One that I know pretty well I love to be around. She is just shocked when I start to get in one of my philosophical moods and shes one of few that can actually inspire me to become more social. I just feel so much more comfortable around her. I think socionics got it right with this dual. It's like we both have so much to learn from each other.


    ESFP: Illogical. This is the kind of person who absolutely craves attention. They live on emotion in excess, surviving on the moment. Unreasonable, and are highly infuriating. Capricious and hedonistic, although much less callous than their thinking cousins. Have a conscience. Very fun, although in small doses, and easily flooded by emotion at which point they become inconsolable and passionate. Overall, overemotional, yet not bad people.
    It's funny because this is fairly good description of what I thought of her before I got to know her. I would have added annoying and unthinking. As in they give very little thought to their actions. Something i really couldn't understand at the time.

    What do you mean by that, exactly? Shocked in what way?

    In awe. "I've been looking for someone who can think the way you do" -ESFP.
    One of the best compliments I think I've ever gotten.

    Actually the ISFP I thought of are interested in sushi, furniture, artistic photography, wine. Wine just made a good example. And no, I can't relate how they hold the style of some inanimate objects to such importance. It comes up every now and then, and it's when they talk most.

    Oh, those and concerts, ice cream flavor, .. but.. I don't remember everything, I tend to tune out a bit when they're too excited about something like that.

    I love ESFPs! One of my best mates an ESFP and it was him that turned me from an INTP to an eNTP for which i'm very thankful!

    Also he is far more intelligent than i at first gave him credit for. Actually he can be very smart!

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    I'm curious how you are able to give personal opinions of all 16 types. I have been studying MBTi for quite a while and still don't believe I've met (consciously) all of the types, let alone enough of each one to be able to give my opinion of them.

    Most people aren't going to sit down and take an MBTI test, and while I've gotten pretty good, I still can't type everyone accurately 100% of the time. Usually I end up a single letter off.
    Embrace the possibilities.
