ESFP - Personal Relationship

The Fun Lovers


ESFPs are very fun-loving parents. They are constantly looking for fun and exciting activities to do with their children. They encourage their children to try new things, and understand that their children must step outside of their comfort zone for learning to happen. When their children try and fail, ESFP parents are always there to help pick their child back up, encouraging them to try again.

ESFPs certainly do have rules, but may have a hard time enforcing them. ESFP parents do not like feeling as if they are strict authoritarians. In addition, ESFPs do not like conflict and are especially hurt when their children are disrespectful. It is important for ESFP parents to remind themselves that sometimes you need to enforce the rules – the rules are there to help and protect your child!

Romantic Relationships

ESFPs are free-spirited and fun, an energy they naturally bring into their romantic relationships. ESFPs do not want to slowly get to know someone, they want to skip ahead and experience all the excitement that life has to offer! They are constantly looking for new and exciting date ideas and getaways with their romantic partners.

Because ESFPs are constantly seeking out excitement, they may have a difficult time committing and staying in a long-term relationship. ESFPs dread falling into a boring routine, so anyone dating an ESFP must keep things exciting and fresh.


ESFPs make very loyal and kind friends. They are always there for a friend in need. At other times, however, they will make sure that everyone is having a great time! You will never have a boring evening with an ESFP.

Many people are naturally drawn to the charismatic and friendly nature of ESFPs. In turn, ESFPs are accepting of all others, even those who have very different personality types than themselves. They often make great friends for introverts, who don’t mind sharing the spotlight.

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.
