    Heh. Not always! The ESFPs I know are about as practical as a spontaneous trip to the Bahamas.

    Focus. [The illusion of]

    ISFPs putter around happily and seem more focused, although in actuality they're pretty flexy and go-with-the-flow in most situations.

    ESFPs fling themselves all around and seem swept away on enthusiasm or the experience. More volatile, more "random" in some ways.

    Put another way, both use Se and Fi... but the Fi+Se combo for ISFP means they're driven by values and express it by puttering around to experience the sensations of the world. They use experiences to contribute to their values or to reflect them.

    ESFPs are sensation-first, steered by values when necessary, and so they appear to leap from one experience to the next, with the focus on the experience itself.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I think neither is a typically clingy type.

    NFs are clingy- in a charming way.

    This is my dead horse beating response, but this is another example of E/I not being a good means of distinguising types. I have an ESFP daughter who stays constantly on the go, joining clubs student council, pom, competitive softball. I see her as a "sampler" and wanting to dabble in everything. I would think that an ISFP in typical introverted fashion would find no need to sample everything, and once she finds something of interest may stick with it longer than the ESFP or average extraverted type. Yet that is quite sterotypical as well. As for Jeffster's response, even extraverts find it necessary to recharge their batteries. The tell-tale difference may be that unless asleep, extraverts are on the go and introverts generally may be home bodies.

    This might explain my maternal grandmother Nanny's always warm chocolate chip cookies; they tasted like love was the secret ingredient.

    ESFPs are sensation-first, steered by values when necessary, and so they appear to leap from one experience to the next, with the focus on the experience itself.
    This might explain my Mom's penchant for after-school antics with us at the expense of a timely supper.

    All this time I've been wondering what I was doing, but now I know I've been puttering around. Thanks Jennifer.

    Let's just say that any unhealthy type can be clingy.
