Illustrations of Type – ESFP and ESTP

Illustrations of Type – ESFP and ESTP

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningIn my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction -“Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from a group of people who have either ESTP or ESFP preferences.

People who prefer using sensing in the outer world [Extraverted Sensing (Se)] tend to enjoy being in the moment and engaging in practical and fun activities, often with others. For ESFPs and ESTPs, extraverted sensing is their dominant function.

Their picture shows this group’s interest in people, action and interaction. They also show how they gather information through their senses. Curiosity and flexibility are words often used when describing people with these preferences.

The ESFP wasn’t overlooked, as seen by the heart drawn below the ST’s words “facts and logic”.

You may also want to look at other ESFP illustrations and ESTP illustrations in this series.
