Careers for ESFP Personality Types
Whether you're a young adult trying to find your place in the world,
or a not-so-young adult trying to find out if you're moving along the
right path, it's important to understand yourself and the personality traits that
will impact your likeliness to succeed or fail at various careers. It's
equally important to understand what is really important to you. When
armed with an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, and an
awareness of what you truly value, you are in an excellent position to
pick a career that you will find rewarding.
ESFPs are good at many things, but will not be happy
unless they have a lot of contact with people, and a lot of
new experiences. They should choose careers that
provide them with the opportunity to use their great people skills
and practical perspective, that will also provide them with enough new
challenges that they will not become bored.
The following list of professions is built on our impression of careers
that would be especially suitable for an ESFP. It is meant to be a starting
place, rather than an exhaustive list. There are no guarantees that any
or all of the careers listed here would be appropriate for you, or that your
best career match is among those listed here.
