The fact that they live so much in the present moment causes the ESTP to do things different than they might vocalize. While the ESTP says one thing, their actions can sometimes contradict this. They also strive to please and impress others, which can cause them to appear insincere sometimes. This is simply because the ESTP cares what people think and wants to be seen as impressive to their loved ones.
ISFPs can be emotional people, which can cause them to jump from one thing to another rather quickly. The fact that ISFPs always follow their hearts can cause them to appear less sincere than they actually are. The ISFP might say one thing and act entirely different, which might upset others. Their behavior may seem flighty but in truth the ISFP is simply following what they feel is right in that present moment. They follow their own desires, instead of focusing on what people expect from them.
ESFPs are open people, which causes them to be sincere in most of their actions. They do have times where they prioritize appearances a bit too much, but they rarely even recognize when they are doing this. ESFPs do strive to be sincere people, and want their lives to focus on enjoying the present moment.
