I'm an ESFP... Dominant Extraverted Sensing

I took a Myers-Briggs Personality test after seeing Lauren's post and here's what I've got.

Extraverted sensing types are pragmatic and realistic with a zest for living life to the fullest by way of multiplying experiences. Always on the alert for what needs immediate attention or what might provide a bit of action, excitement or entertainment, they engage quickly with their environment. They seek and enjoy freedom, are good-natured, direct, and tolerant and are often the ones who provide levity.

They have a way with dealing with people on a very equal platform and are not easily star struck. Rank, celebrity and status mean little when they are face to face with another individual.

On the job, they appreciate having the right tools and are quite ingenious at finding ways to fix and repair things with dexterity. They love variety and are curious and adventurous, enjoying the unexpected. Their brand of extraversion is one of deeds rather than words. As long as things are moving along, they are happy. They like to keep things simple and immediate, going with the flow. They are helpful in very concrete ways, providing the correct tools or specific service the person requires. They often have an uncanny ability to respond appropriately in cases of emergencies, often having excellent reflexes. They act without thinking. They also tend to have natural mediating skills.

They are attuned to the environment and the myriad colours, textures, sounds, beauty and the sensuousness of it all. They are quite graceful and agile while moving through their environment. They love having fun and if things are too quiet they may provide the entertainment or distraction. They learn by imitation and are keen observers. They teach through example. Their attention will always go towards whatever provides the keenest impression on their senses.

Hmmm... that does sound like Loralai from Gilmore Girls! :)

LOL! Okay, so maybe I'm not as manic as I think I am... Or maybe I just know how to take a test. ;-)

Okay, STP are my last letters, but I can't decide which one. I'm not an extrovert, but the introvert qualities didn't fit comfortably either....

Type descriptions
Does this help?

Stacey said...

I still can't decide...

Roe said...

Are you more introverted than extroverted?

Stacey said...

Yeah, mostly...
