I'm really getting quite sick of the stereotyping ESFP's as morons who just wanna have fun.
Ok so we have a whole bunch of N's (yah S's too, you don't get away scott free) claiming that there is the N bias and the vast majority self type or re-type as N's because of this and many are infact mistyped etc.
But really these same N's display nuances that go against their supposed views, in short, hypocrisy. They too are blameworthy of the bias.
Phrases such as....
"Oh i love ESFP's they really know how to live in the moment"
"I wish i had their carefree attitude"
"There are plenty of intelligent ESFP's" (without reference (and S types in general))
... really don't do much to quell the subtle (or not) presumption/trend.
Then you have the typical backhanded compliments or all out insults...erring on the..."Fantastic in bed, if only they could keep up intellectually"
Ofc the mbti type descriptions only serve to fuel this apparent disparity. I believe the bias is not so heavy in socionics terms.
So what i'd actually like to hear is some genuine appreciation for this type.
Does anyone have examples of well known intelligent ESFP's?...
It seems to me that anyone famously intelligent is auto typed as an N or at least there is a heavy leaning.
Lots of examples of famous ISTP's, and ESTP's out there though.
Show me the
p.s I may come back to tidy this up.
n.b i may too have made such comments, possibly to my detriment, i could even be an EXFP myself. I just don't SEe it.
