Bold - People with the ESTP personality type are full of life and energy. There is no greater joy for ESTPs than pushing boundaries and discovering and using new things and ideas.
Rational and Practical - ESTPs love knowledge and philosophy, but not for their own sake. What's fun for ESTP personalities is finding ideas that are actionable and drilling into the details so they can put them to use. If a discussion is completely arbitrary, there are better uses for ESTPs' time.
Original - Combining their boldness and practicality, ESTPs love to experiment with new ideas and solutions. They put things together in ways no one else would think to.
Perceptive - This originality is helped by ESTPs' ability to notice when things change – and when they need to change! Small shifts in habits and appearances stick out to ESTPs, and they use these observations to help create connections with others.
Direct - This perceptive skill isn't used for mind games – ESTPs prefer to communicate clearly, with direct and factual questions and answers. Things are what they are.
Sociable - All these qualities pull together to make a natural group leader in ESTPs. This isn't something that they actively seek – people with this personality type just have a knack for making excellent use of social interactions and networking opportunities.
