    Default Quiet ESTP's

    Are there quiet/reserved ESTPs or does that just mean they're ISTPs?

    I know a couple of definite STPs who are charming, very confident, like to go out every night, are always chasing girls, and very good at promoting themselves.

    However, they are not usually very outgoing or friendly at all unless they have been drinking. Usually they're described as quiet and reserved while still being all the things I listed above.

    I can't imagine an ESTP being quiet. If I am just entering into a situation, I will sit back and listen in order to assess who's who and what's going on, but after that I'm barreling ahead at full speed. I'm sure there is alot of variance in the ESTP type, as in all others, but would be surprised if the "quiet" ones were more in number than an outlier.

    I know some damn lively introverts. Not all are silent wallflowers, some are truly hilarious and vocal but at times of their choosing, as opposed to by default, like their extrovert cousins...

    Most people don't recognize me as being an introvert. A quiet ESTP?

    I've noticed this with ESTPs. Could you explain more, about what you're reading and what you look for?

    I went through the bother of registering an account and blahbitty blah blah to say that I am the same way. A direct quote from a biography I wrote for a dating site:

    "Upon first meeting me, people typically say I'm pretty quiet, closed off and generally unreadable, but that's only because I'm observing and getting a feel for you. Once I decide that I like you, you're going to be shocked all to hell with the personality flip-flop because I am loud, I am crude, and as much as you might wish I would, I absolutely will not shut up."

    And also!

    "People always think that I'm shy, quiet, reserved, even stuck up when they first meet me. If appear to be acting this way, more often than not, it's only because a) I'm in a setting or situation that is making me uncomfortable or b) I'm unsure about you and I'm hanging back to learn more about you before I decide if I like you or not."

    What I forgot to include (and will probably edit to add) is that if I appear to be quiet, it's because I have my Tact Filter on. (Come to think of it, this actually falls under "uncomfortable situation.") I will blurt out the most amazingly inappropriate things (that I think are hilarious, but what can you do) and have learned that if I'm not sure whether what I'm about to say is going to go over well with present company, and more importantly, I actually care about whether or not I offend said company, it's easier just to just keep my trap shut. I'm being quiet because I'm deciding whether the person or people I'm talking to can handle me or not. I'm trying to be considerate, see?

    You do. There will be a self-help workbook out for it next week,. Inside its cover a small hammer will be imbedded in the text. Pull it out and beat yourself over the head with it, and your current problems will subside as new pain manifests.

    I really hope they come out with an ESTP workbook soon. Haaa!!!
