ESFP - Career

The Fun Lovers

Work Habits

ESFPs are very giving and are willing to help others when needed, and this is apparent in the workplace. ESFPs are great team-players. They enjoy working in groups, and are both flexible and practical when doing so. ESFPs are often described as hardworking and willing to help.

While ESFPs can get along with most people, people who enjoy a great deal of structure and routine may find it difficult to work with ESFPs. They may view ESFPs as too free-spirited and irresponsible, and will quickly get frustrated.

People with this personality type have trouble dealing with conflict, and will to go great lengths to avoid conflict. Although they may seek affirmation from others, they are very sensitive to any negative feedback. Oftentimes, ESFPs take negative feedback very personally, and will harbor a grudge about it later on.

Career Paths

ESFPs thrive in careers that allow them to be creative and interact with others. They often are well-suited for careers as artists, actors, sales representatives, social workers, designers, consultants, or photographers.

Our diversity is beautiful - it would be so terribly boring if we were all the same! ... Let's love each other. ... Let's dare to be beautiful in our own truth - and still belong.
