    xstp don't get goofy because that is xsfp territory. We all have our place, I've had a lot of xstp friends, I know what I'm talking about. That slightly geeky thing is xsfp trademarked too and I'd be pissed if xstp started walking all over my territory.

    I'm extremely goofy, and I think Halla would say the same about himself. Hell, he already has. It can depend on the audience, though. If I don't think the audience I'm beholden to will appreciate it, I find some other way to bedazzle them. There's always some other trick in the bag to employ.

    The ISTP I knew would kinda facepalm sometimes over my goofiness. He was a bit crazy too, just not as unthinking about it, and he had more of a tendency to get shy when something he said or did didn't "work".

    EDIT: check out the ESTP dudes and dudettes in my sig. Most of them were pretty goofy in some way, shape or form. Definitely zany.

    Well the thing is, if your INFP, you're fucked. For life.

    INFP girls = constantly taken advantage of

    INFP guys = can't get laid cuz they are fucking n00bs

    xSTP girls get VERY playful and excited. Well, moreso the ESTP's. Not sure about goofiness.

    The guys I would imagine get quite goofy, particularly the ESTP's. There is, after all, always another notch to take the goofiness up to.

    Hell yes, Stellar!

    Goofiness/sillyness/zaniness/craziness/etc. is thoroughly integrated throughout my persona. I demand to have a good time. I do not think anything is sacrosanct and devoid of being observed or interacted with in a humorous light.

    Do not be fooled, however. I am a die hard perfectionist, I am the most productive person I know, I am extremely tactical and with few equals with regard to being able to show up anywhere and make things happen, but in the course of all this I cannot and will not be bored, thus my dedication to sillyness.

    Stellar and I B.S.'d on the phone one day a few months ago. We were both laughing our asses off, it was ridiculous, and all we were doing was talking over anecdotal aspects of ESTP-ness, just seeing what parts of the type fit us and what did not. The similarities between us were uncanny to say the least. I'm pretty sure a public event of mass hysterical wildness will erupt once he and I are in the same vicinty.

    So, I am going to go out on a limb and say that of the ESTPs I know, that being a bit goofy about things is part of our style. We like to have a good time. Good times go hand in hand with laughing. And laughing is often accomplished by having a somewhat goofy execution of life's necessary tasks, and the accompanying conversations that are required to determine what is necessary to do.

    Exactly, I do the same. When you find someone that has a stick up their ass that you have to deal with, you get the info/direction you need from them, and then you move on and execute things as necessary where you have more latitude in being autonomous and silly.

    Interesting! Might that be linked to their not wanting to be the center of attention? Or do you think its moreso a lack of self confidence? Not so much "insecurity" but a lack of faith in their abilities to take one on the chin, and keep moving forward in stride if a joke failed, etc...

    Hell yeah they are. They are badasses, and zany, and in their own way probably implemented goofiness with exacting precision.



    Life is too short not to have fun. One doesn't have to be an uptight stick in the mud once they become an intelligent and capable person. Anybody that doesn't have the capacity to laugh at themselves has no right to wield humor at the expense of others. This thinking is part of what makes ESTPs able to work with and through others more effectively than most. All relationships start with "Hello." We are not afraid to speak to anyone. In order to establish the minimum rapport necessary for a new acquaintance to be willing to work with you, let alone help you with something, especially if they are not obligated to do so for any reason, it is necessary for them to identify with you. Identifying with someone is as simple as talking with them and determining at least one thing you have in common with them. To make such conversations happen you need to get people's guard down. And waht's the best way to get people's guard down???

    LAUGHTER. :yim_rolling_on_the_

    Work hard, play hard, and laugh hard through it all. Life is too short to not enjoy every second of it. This is not a dress rehearsal.

    My istp little brother is very goofy. He and I have very similar senses of humor, we find a ton of things funny. I would say he maintains a bit of a "drier" goofiness, though, if that makes any sense.

    My estp co-worker can be quite goofy, too. He'll sometimes come up and start shaking my desk or my chair for no reason, and if he's driving when we're going to lunch, he'll make sudden stops or turns just to mess with me.

    I think I may even have seen some xstp goofiness in action now and again. I'm going to have to retract my earlier statement that xstp aren't goofy. It looks like they can, those xstp, they've got it all. Buggers.

    Haaah! Yeah, we've got it all, including everyone thinking that we are con-artists, used car salesmen, and scoundrels, even when we do something simple like help an old lady take groceries to her car!

    Everybody knows you only want to check out her car and give some "helpful" suggestions on a new model. Dastardly devils.
