Thriving in Change: Tips for ESTPs and ESFPs

Thriving in Change: Tips for ESTPs and ESFPs

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningIn times of change, the Responder’s (ESTP and ESFP) immediate and practical focus is their greatest strength and also their biggest weakness. When faced with changes, Responders react by being highly flexible.

If you are a Responder, you may be resistant when you cannot see practical reasons for imposed changes or when you are not actively engaged in a change.

Here are 5 tips to help you thrive during change:

• Maneuver and adapt in the moment

• Take risks and try new things

• Use your creativity to solve practical problems

• Find immediate benefits and advantages in the change

• Challenge yourself to align your actions with long-term results and rewards

You can find out more about how ESFPs and ESTPs respond to change in my temperament post on SPs and Change.
