ESTPs are thrill-seekers and are able to act effectively in extreme situations. They are dynamic, energetic, active, and enterprising, and like to solve problems. ESTPs are often called Entrepreneurs for their ability to find a way out of different circumstances and quickly make smart decisions. Entrepreneurs are constantly looking for adventures in which they can prove themselves.
ESTPs are great in emergency situations where they act as firefighters who put out fires, both real and metaphorical. They are focused on the result and on getting it immediately. They put all their efforts to enjoy the present moment, and do not think about what could have been. They do not like to talk about what will happen in the future, and they do not tolerate theoretical reflections and abstract concepts. Solving practical problems is the greatest strength of Entrepreneurs.
ESTPs interact well with others, as they are very sociable. The unstoppable energy and ingenuity of Entrepreneurs attract other people. They make jokes, talk to friends, get along with strangers, and maintain a large network of contacts. ESTPs have a great sense of humor and are often the center of attention. For all their ability to easily find a common language with anyone, ESTPs are not held in long-term relationships. They prefer to have a wide range of contacts but are less interested in building a close relationship with one person.
Entrepreneurs have an innate ability to capture other people's thoughts and motives. They are extremely sensitive and can easily detect the slightest changes in someone's facial expression, clothing, or behavior. They are usually a couple of steps ahead of the person they are communicating with, and use this ability to take everything they need from the situation.
