The world is a stage for the Performer, otherwise those classified as ESFP individuals. They live in a world filled with possibilities of meeting new people and forming new experiences with them.
Their primary mode is external, in that they understand things by utilizing all five senses in a concrete, yet literal way. Their secondary internal instinct makes them prone to using feelings to interpret the things around them, whether making decisions or fitting such things into their morality system.
The Performer or ESFP individual are here and now as the center of attention, powered by the excitement and drama of their lives. However, these traits may manifest differently within women and men. Let’s take a look at how ESFP traits manifest in both women and men in this article.
ESFP As A Woman
The ESFP woman is the light of the party, often highly affectionate to the people who travel in and out of her life.
These women tend to have incredibly strong interpersonal skills and have no problem befriending people. They tend to act as pacifists or mediators amid interpersonal conflict, since they’re often concerned and have sympathy for people’s well being.
ESFP women also have a highly intuitive nature when around people; they tend to see what’s wrong with others before they tell anyone else and typically respond to that person with a solution. They are typically practical and handle situation best by being hands-on, rather than consulting their Thinking traits. Socially, ESFP women enjoy making others feel great in different ways, ultimately doing whatever it takes to give the people they love happiness.
The ESFP woman accepts everyone for who they may be and treats most people as a friend; if scorned, they do tend to hold a deep dislike against the scornful person in question. As mothers, they do incredibly well with nurturing their kin, especially from those of a younger age, to the detriment of putting her kin before her own needs.
ESFP As A Man
The ESFP man is center stage in the show known as his life. He is highly intuitive and attuned with the emotions of those around him.
ESFP men tend to be people pleasers. Their affinity to their intuition and emotions helps them understand what makes people tick and what makes them happy. As a team player, he is unlikely to create problems among other people, instead doing what he can to make the environment pleasant for everyone else.
An individual who craves new experiences, ESFP men tend to gravitate to highly sociable careers like their counterparts. They’re also rather practical and handle situation best by being hands-on, rather than consulting their Thinking traits.
They love making others happy and treat everyone they meet as if a friend. If scored or stressed by an individual or situation, they tend to resolve the issue by harboring some sort of resentment in order to get over the issue. As fathers, their intuitive nature helps them better meet the needs of their kin, but they may have difficulty understanding their kins’ conflicting opinions at times.
