    I have a friend/former coworker who is an ESTP of stereotypical proportions nearly He works in sales and is a very good salesman (as opposed to me- who was a sometimes good saleswoman, but got distracted way too easily and was more interested in the person's home than selling them something in the end- though I often got free books!) in fact, hearing him tell you good morning made you think in the back of the head "oh no! is he going to SELL me the morning?!"

    His idea of a nice distraction was drinking a 40 and checking out the hot chicks walking by (and hitting on them!) I was more easily found drinking the 40 and reading a book or critiquing people walking by

    The ESTP found the idea of hitting the dance floor to be fabulous, while I usually tried my best to avoid it

    he gave the best motivating speeches, everyone would leave the room feeling like "I'm going to sell lots of stuff!" my past attempts at motivating people have tended to send them to the library- or bar

    I get described as a nerd constantly, by accidentally saying really nerdy things in regular conversation without it even occurring to me that it doesn't really fit the conversation or the audience, while he's just called a dork for hitting on anything with tits and dancing in a horrible but enthusiastic way

    Both of us are generally upbeat, generous, dreadfully obscene (we'd get in obscene joke or limerick contests on a regular basis) and high energy- I am just a lot more detached from reality than he is

    I agree with Tiny Army, we EPs have trouble keeping our clothes on. ESFPs are the worst, they take off EVERYTHING =P

    Definitely.

    Meh, I don't know. I know everything about nutrition (that also goes with my mother being a nutritionist), but I actually do care about food, if:
    1. It will make me sick (I'm incredibly picky, and have a sensitive stomach)
    2. It's of very low quality (Goes with 1)
    But that could be me, my mom taught me a lot about food and to appreciate culinary arts, even crave it. College food gets old really fast.

    This is all very true as well.

    I think the main difference is that an ENTP would stop and look around the intersection while the ESTP would run the red light and speed down the highway.

    The ESTP would be blasting this loudly, while and ENTP would be blasting that loudly.

    The ENTP would be driving this, and the ESTP would be driving that.

    The ESTP license plate would be named "OMG ESTP," while the ENTP license plate would be named "LOL ENTP"

    It's simple....

    Entps are jokesters/pranksters... eg: half the guys on jackass

    Estps are jocks/meatheads... eg: bodybuilders and sport addicts

    Incidentally this doesn't differ much from my own behavior starting around age 7 or 8 (I just stopped tanning when I realized at an older age it might make me prematurely old and ugly).

    In all seriousness, I don't know if SP children are actually more physically inclined as small children and if SFPs are actually inclined more toward performing than, say, ENFPs.

    Do you think there's really any basis for that?

    ESTP vs ENTP:|

    ESTP: More artsy and playful.

    ENTP: More techie. Playful too but with a smart-ass streak.

    ESTP + ENTP: Both have short attention spans, both have schemes running through heads, both stare thoughts of wasted potential due to super-high-speed brain activity.

    ESTP + ENTP: Both social, both all over the place.

    OK, how'd I do?
    Nice!

    The food thing..I approach it technically. It's fuel for the body. Except one cheat day a week, when I pretty much eat whatever I want.

    When I've had feelings of despair I break down for as long as required to 'get it the hell out of my container', then I launch a salvo and attempt to topple all struggles and crush them. Realizing time will be more of a factor than I'd like, I suck it up. The only real downer in the whole process is, despite the general despair, is that I tend to sympathize with myself, others when I should be tending to my own responsibilities of health, and sometimes, God forbid, even those who have tried to harm me.

    Are there any similarities in your experience?
