    Great thread idea -- good for you for making it.

    How do you feel about Keirsey? Do you relate to how he describes the SP temperament, and how he describes the ESFP Performer?

    Well, think of all the things the extrovert Ratty is good at that the introvert Mole needs, then tell me. Tell me how a lovely extrovert like you can make the life of a shy introvert like me, happy.

    I mean ask yourself, why are the extrovert Water Rat and the introvert Mole such good friends?

    Yes.

    [*]What type of person do you get along best with?
    A person with a sense of humor.

    [*]Do you fall in love easily?
    Yes.

    [*]What is love like for you?
    Like pure joy mixed with an even higher level of goofiness than normal, and a strong desire to be in contact always.

    [*]ESFPs aren't commonly online. What brought you online, and what keeps your here?
    That is very false. ESFPs are extremely common online. This misconception that ESFPs aren't online probably just stems from us not frequenting the same online sites as you do. ESFPs are ALL OVER sports forums, music forums, and of course all the popular social media sites like Facebook and Twitter and stuff like that, and many other online spots.

    What brought me online originally was my older brother telling me "hey, look at this cool stuff you can do on the computer." What keeps me online is the fact that there's now even more cool stuff to do on the computer.

    [*]Are you a big facebook/social media user?
    Yes, and so are a lot of other ESFPs. (callback to previous question)

    [*]Do you prefer to have a wide circle of friends or a small one?
    Wide. I'd prefer it to circle the entire world.

    [*]How closely does the ESFP description fit your personality?
    Depends on the description. Overall, those profiles that focus more on the preferences and less on specific habits are more prone to be accurate about me. The best one I've read is the one at http://www.bestfittype.com/16Types/ESFP.cfm.


    [*]How did you decide that you were an ESFp?
    Most online assessments I did gave me the result of either ESFP or ISFP. I originally typed myself as ISFP because I used the common definition of introvert, meaning I'm not particularly socially active compared to a lot of other people and not great at starting conversations, etc. But the more I learned about typology and the more conversations I had with actual introverts who talked about things like "needing alone time" the more I realized that extravert fit me better. Then I took the actual MBTI and also came up as ESFP on that, so that was the clincher. I always prefer to be in the company of others, most of my "alone time" is not by choice, but I adapt to it out of necessity.

    [*]Do you like getting into the theories while studying psychology, or are you usually attracted to something else?
    Something else.

    [*]What drew you to that major?
    I'm more drawn to the majorettes.

    [*]Do you enjoy going to school, or is it just something you have to do?
    No.

    By the way, Comeback Girl, welcome to the forum! You are correct, we ESFPs are small in number here, however we make up for that by being incredibly awesome.

    @Mole

    I don't know, but I don't think being an extrovert or an introvert changes anything about being able to be friends with each other.

    @EJCC

    I don't know, Keirsey was just doing his job the best way he could, I guess. I think he created a very positive image about SPs, while I think many people kind of think of them in a more negative way (lazy by Js, dumb by Ns), so that's a good thing. I do recognize myself in it and also in the ESFP description. So yeah, that's all good.
