    Default Why are ESFPs conservative?

    404 Not Found
    ESFP

    We had 67 ESFPs volunteer their political affiliation. The breakdown is as follows:

    1. Republican - 34% (23/67)
    2. Not Political - 19% (13/67)
    3. Democrat - 13% (9/67)
    4. Middle of the Road - 12% (8/67)
    5. Conservative - 10% (7/67)
    6. Liberal - 7% (5/67)
    7. Other - 3% (2/67)
    8. Libertarian - 0% (0/67)
    According to these statistics ESFPs are the most conservative type, next to INTJ, lol.

    Yeah, that's only 67 people. You'd have to know something about them individually to know why there were more Republicans. I think SPs in general are the least likely to be strongly tied to a political party. We are more likely independent and making choices based on the situation at hand.

    This explains why I'm the only ENFP who is really conservative - in reality, I'm an ESFP! Who'da thunk it?

    I'll bet it's because they're non-conformist and hate being predictable (a.k.a. boring), and most people would expect them to be liberal, so they're like, "Hellz naw, beatch, I'm an over-the-top patriotic American and love 'family values.' Yay Reagan, yeeeee haaaaw!" Yup, that's gotta be it.

    Actually, my ESFP sister has said something along these lines to me in the past. That everyone thinks she should be liberal (being of mixed ethnic origin and emotionally effusive), and she enjoys their expressions of surprise when she spouts off about how much she hates liberals and feminists.

    A poll of ESFP's that are going to poll online in a forum may not be representative of their type. Just a thought.

    Actually, it's sort of funny -- but my SFP friends IRL are usually conservatives as well. It wigged me out, honestly. Even my ESFP kid has strong conservative overtones. Now, if I had grown up in liberal circles, maybe I would have met a lot more SFP non-conservatives, but in the general area around here, I definitely saw the bias.

    I'm thinking SFP is open to imprinting when younger and absorb surrounding cultural values. I'd be interested in seeing STP political leanings.

    I'm not a conservative, at least about most issues. None of the political parties really appeal to me, especially on a national level, however. But... when I vote, I split my ticket!

    Yeah, that sounds like an SP. We are more about defying expectations than devout principles much of the time.
