ESTPs tend to:

  • bring a lot of fun and energy into their personal relationships
  • quite generous, and known for “sweeping their partners off their feet”
  • live almost entirely in the present moment
  • be uncomfortable with making plans far in advance for their future, which can lead to putting off committing to a relationship
  • believe that actions speak louder than words, and so don’t understand the need to say things which should be obvious
  • be very sensual and earthy, and usually live fast-paced lives where their focus is on the present moment
  • have a difficult time apologizing to a partner
  • start projects, but doesn’t finish them
  • be confident about their ability to charm others

ESTPs value in their partners:

  • follow-through
  • playfulness
  • willingness to stay out of the ESTPs limelight, or at least share it
  • self-reliance
  • experimentation
  • appreciation for who they are
