ESTP: Extravert Sensor Thinker Perceiver

“The Showperson” (Temperament: Catalyst)

ESTPs are built for action and adventure. They live in the moment and tend to be sensation-seekers.

Many are natural promoters and showmen. They can bring a lot of energy & enthusiasm and are quick thinkers with a flair for the dramatic and a knack for sizing people up.

ESTPs are driven by their curiosity and enthusiasm for life. They are highly observant, with a keen eye for spotting opportunities that others may miss. When faced with a problem, ESTPs thrive as they quickly figure out creative solutions and find ways around any obstacles in their path. They are natural problem solvers who take pride in finding innovative solutions. This ability enables them to easily move from one project to another without getting overwhelmed or discouraged by setbacks.

In addition, ESTPs possess a strong ambition and competitive drive that often leads them into business ventures and other challenging endeavors that require risk-taking and perseverance. They also enjoy working independently but can work well with others when needed. Furthermore, they tend to be highly confident in their abilities and trust in their instincts — which makes them great leaders who inspire others with their positive attitude and unwavering determination.

Finally, ESTPs have an adventurous spirit that encourages them to explore new things and take risks without hesitation — which is why they make excellent entrepreneurs and innovators who aren’t afraid of failure or success. With all these qualities combined, you can see why ESTPs can be incredibly successful in whatever they choose to pursue.


The ESTP personality type is a dynamic one filled with curiosity, ambition, creativity, resilience, confidence, and courage. If you think you might be an ESTP or know someone who is — congratulations! You’ve found yourself a true go-getter! With their unique combination of skills and attributes, ESTPs will often seize every opportunity available while staying focused on achieving their goals no matter what challenges they may face along the way. 


I was extreme… from stakeboarder to hip-hopper to rave child to lead singer of a rock band – I did it all, and all at the same time.
