Unfortunately my friend’s ex-girlfriend has created quite a negative first impression of you guys, but being the INFP that I am I refuse to judge all of you based on her. However, I am very interested in positive examples of you all in action.
Firstly I’ll let you know what I have gathered from her in interactions with myself and others. She is CONSTANTLY looking to be the center of attention in negative ways by being dramatic, talking very loudly, and through unwanted physical contact.
**Side note: She is bisexual as am I and one of my other friends. It’s not uncommon for me and my other friends to get pretty touchy-feely with each other at parties or at other times when everyone is just kind of letting loose and having fun. What I mean by “unwanted physical contact” is that she would randomly come up behind us in public and grope us and try to corner us into kissing her. We did let her know that there was a time and a place for it and that we weren’t always down for it, and she understood and stopped doing it at inappropriate times, however it would be no different at any sort of party.
She would cling to her boyfriend and suck on his neck like a leech. She also had a problem with knowing when to stop drinking, and at every party she would drink way too much and make some sort of scene.
I like to think that the majority of ESFPs enjoy the center of attention but are more aware of when they need to stop and are comfortable not being the center of attention all the time. From what I know about personality psychology I would assume that ESFPs are great outgoing, fun loving people who always have an idea of what to do or where to go that most everyone would be happy with, but are good at going with the flow as long as there doing something. I like to think that you guys would be that person that everyone loves at parties. I feel like maybe you guys have a hard time sitting still? ? 😉
But I want to hear from all of you! What are your experiences as an ESFP or interacting with them? Have you noticed that you enjoy being the life of the party or an ESFP you know seems to enjoy the spotlight? Let me know, I want my faith in this type restored! 🙂
