ESFPs and Decision Making

ESFPs and Decision Making

By Donna Dunning

Donna Dunning

We all have different ways of solving problems and making decisions. People with ESFP preferences have their own distinct, strengths and challenges.



• Quickly observe people’s reactions and comfort levels in a situation

• Choose to act right away to help people be more comfortable and relaxed

• Like to find practical, creative solutions to day-to-day problems

• When deciding and solving problems, are often willing to compromise and work cooperatively to meet the needs of the people involved

• Are usually easy-going, flexible and tend to adapt to decisions by looking for ways to find agreement



• May want to act right away rather than dig deeper into ongoing issues and problems

• May not take the time to assess situations logically

• May avoid looking to the future when solving problems or deciding, as this tends to be less appealing than living in the here-and-now


• ESFPs enjoy harmony and, as a result, may change the topic and avoid discussing sensitive issues that need to be addressed

• ESFPs may derail analytical or impartial discussions or disregard information that is based mainly on impersonal considerations

• Being flexible and willing to cooperate with others’ decisions can be an overused strength. Take a stand on important matters.
