    Yes they are more personal than ESTP and because of that I like them better, but at the same time their Ti makes them hard to connect with/reach sometimes. I really like closeness and from what I understand ISTP is somewhat allergic to that.

    I don't know any well; however one of my good friends' ex-husbands was an ESTP and I know a bit about him. I wouldn't have described him as 'wild and crazy' or even as 'reformed wild and crazy'. lol. However, he definitely made a good impression - very easygoing, likeable, and friendly. Devoted to his group of friends, however the statement was also made by many that he wasn't actually *close* to any, and when you got down to it, no one really knew a whole lot about him; very activity-oriented approach to things, and could be really fun to be around and share experiences with, but was not interpersonal in terms of connecting/deepening relationships, etc. Lots of surface/hanging-out friends, but didn't divulge in anyone. Also had a good job and was successful career-wise.

    He was insanely image-conscious, though, and a bit of a slave to money and buying stuff and wanting the next best thing, and constantly being on the go or having to be highly competitive in various personal/hobby endeavors, such that it took over pretty much everything else, including relationships.

    Not that that's how all ESTP's would be; I think for him he was just uber-Se and hasn't developed/prioritized a whole lot more yet.

    I'm always kind of dissapointed that we come across as overly flirtatious to others... I actually almost NEVER flirt, even if I like you (that's when I just walk up and actually get in a conversation with them )

    My man had issues with that at first... He's always been with other IxxJs in the past and kept thinking that I was flirting with other guys when I was just chatting. He got over it when he finally overheard one of those conversations... In which I was bragging that I had the best SO of all to them

    I might laugh and chat with strangers and have slept with more than my fair share of people when single, but he's come to realize that once in a relationship I will always feel lucky to go home with him at the end of the night!

    Im as allergic to it as an ESTP is. The difference is that I am not outgoing so it takes alot more effort on the other persons part to connect with/reach me. Thats probably why I ended up with a Dom Fe. Thats also my biggest fear of not being able to really connect with someone in a relationship and why an I tends to end up with an E. Anyway I have questioned that I am just a quiet/shy ESTP.

    I don't find it difficult to connect with an ESTP; ISTP's are a little more challenging it's true.

    My brother-in-law is ESTP. I feel close to him and I like that I can be myself around him. I believe that feeling is mutual. We have a similar sense of humor and communication style, but I repress it around most people; with him, I can be myself. He's accepting of my quirks and I'm accepting of his.

    There are moments that have made me really admire him that much more, like when I stayed the night at their house recently. I wake up to the sight/sound of this huge flying bug buzzing around in my room. When I turned the light on, it launched at me, so of course I screamed like a girl. Seconds later, my ESTP brother-in-law is calmly walking down the hall towards me with a pistol in his hand ready to kill the intruder. When he saw the big bug, he played like he was going to just leave me there with it (cuz he likes to mess with me like that). Yep, I like to mess with him like that too. It was funny to see him grab the bug with his bare hands and walk out of the room with it.

    He's the only guy that passed the grueling tests I used to put my sister's boyfriends through. We have gained a mutual caring, respect and understanding over the years. He looks out for me and now he's the one that screens my boyfriends.
