    Wouldn't goofy be more of an N than S trait? In fact (don't mean to throw salt in the wound) the only ESTP I know is the complete opposite of goofy. He has excellent co-ordination and is not the least bit socially akward.

    However, if by goofy you meant a belligerent prankster then I absolutely agree.

    More the prankster, but not at all belligerent.

    I copy from by blog where ENFP meets ESTP the good thing about ESTP's:

    In general, I can say that I really like ESTP’s and their speed does not bother me at all. I think they are fun people and if they move too fast, I’ll just tell them to slow down. I think I would have extremely good time with ESTP's when going out to party or going hiking or anything that would involve moving. You'll also have long and interesting conversations with them when they take time and slow down for a while because of a conversation.

    I need Magic in here to illuminate the glories of our wonderful STP's.
    The ESTPs are fantastic because they live in the now and they cheat only if they have to.

    Not because they want to?

    Okay I have several reasons for liking ESTPs, not just because I'm engaged to one. The first couple have been mentioned.

    Definitely a winner. Nothing like having something to think about like "Why on earth did you do that?"

    The ability to go from sullen to cheerful in 0.45 seconds.

    The singular skill of being able to stab someone with a six foot length of stabitty death and look all quizzical not only at them not getting back up again but also at all those mean mean people shouting at them. "What did I do?"

    The ability to get into a supercharged Jaguar, drive it, comment on almost colliding with a roundabout but when asked "what was it like" shrugging and replying "I dunno. It was a car."
    :steam:
    Okay so perhaps that was a semi gripe

    The most freaky thing though.... actually being able to star at a wall and think of nothing. Not just nothing intelligible or formed but actually nothing. NOTHING! :eek:
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I am almost certain my best friend is an ESTP and he constantly does absurd things simply because he is bored.

    Not sure about bored. I'm not sure that's a factor. I think it's more "new shiny shinier than old shiny". It's not that the other things lustre has been lost more that the new object of interest has seemingly more lustre.

    Hmm ... sorry but I don't have a good reply for your last post.

    Although, come to think of it, my friend loves anything that is new and shiny. He also has a good aesthitic sense (nice car and clothing, tastefully furnished houme, etc.)
