Is it normal for ESFPs to start conversations and then sort of tune out? I have and ESFP friend who was doing this all day today. We were in a group so I'm guessing maybe his Se was in overload? It was like he would start talking to me about something and then when I went to answer his question he'd sort of glaze over or look away. I was afraid I was boring him so I figured I'd just let him do his own thing but 15 minutes would go by and he'd do it again.
Almost like he would listen when I was talking to some one else and be real attentive then as soon as he had my attention he'd get distracted.
