“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
– Paulo Coelho, an ESFP
ESFPs are known for their boundless optimism, their enthusiastic charm, and their ability to bring people together in friendship and celebration. They are often called The Entertainers, and it’s not hard to see why. They love to bring joy and fun into any situation; whether it’s through humor, throwing a party, or just providing cheerful support to friends and family members. The ESFP has masterful use of Extraverted Sensing (Se), which means that they are very aware of what’s going on around them and love to celebrate all the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of life. Their auxiliary Introverted Feeling (Fi) gives them a strong set of inner values that they try to live by. They are very compassionate people, who want to make the world a better place for their loved ones. They reach out to people by showing them how to make the most out of each moment without getting bogged down in the past or worrying about the future.
You’ll find a huge variety of famous ESFPs in many career fields; Ronald Reagan, Howard Schultz, Marilyn Monroe, and Quentin Tarantino are just some ESFPs you’ve probably heard of.
