ESFPs at their best

People love ESFPs, and ESFPs love people. They’re most likely incredibly social and outgoing, and know exactly what people need in the moment. In fact, ESFPs tend to live life in the moment. They love trying new things, taking trips, and experimenting with different majors or careers.

ESFPs thrive when in a group. They love to share experiences with other people, whether it’s in their personal lives or in their work environment.

Potential development areas for ESFPs

ESFPs have a lust for life, and they often get distracted by new things, which can cause them to abandon their existing obligations. It’s difficult for ESFPs to stay focused or commit to any one path, which can give them a reputation as being flighty or unreliable.

They also tend to experience anxiety about these behaviors because they don’t want to let other people down, so it can become a bit of a cycle.

Types and Stress

ESFPs and stress

ESFPs feel stressed when they have committed plans or too much structure, because they like to be adaptable and spontaneous. They don’t like being forced to make decisions, and they feel stressed when others analyze their thoughts or behaviors. Things like data and financials tend to overwhelm ESFP personality types, and abstract information or concepts can cause them to feel stress in the workplace.

If you’re an ESFP personality type, you can try a few key things to balance these feelings of stress.
