ESTPs have a mischievous twinkle in their eye. People can tell from their energy that they are fun, restless and unpredictable. Most people will find the ESTP to be exciting, forceful and interesting but also intimidating. They have a strong presence and seem ready to go tit-for-tat with anyone who wants to. ESTPs can seem like provocateurs without an agenda but to have a good time and be their own person.


ESFPs come off as very charming, flirty and a bit impulsive They have an infectious energy and enthusiasm that makes them naturally popular with people. People often want to be friends with them and enjoy the attention, humor and companionship that ESFPs seem to offer.
