The ESFP Personality is all about fun loving entertainment. The ESFP loves to be the center of attention and create environments that allow everyone to have fun. They are their best when they are getting everyone out of their shell and just enjoying living in the moment. The ESFP is hands on and sees the world through their five senses. What they observe is what they see. They can sometimes be a bit critical when they are in a bad mood or want things around them to change. However, they can just as easily be swept away in the next moment by something more exciting or inviting. The ESFP tends to be very expressive and will have no problem making fun of themselves. The ESFP wants life to be a party, and will always find ways to bring a bit more energy to any place they go. Some may see the ESFP as a bit flighty or unreliable, however, they have a certain charm and grace that allows others to forgive the ESFP for being a bit flighty and forgetful. The ESFP can become stressed when they are not receiving feedback. They may start to envision the worst case scenario and become paranoid of others intentions. If the ESFP can learn to accept this mood for what it is, which is usually over-reacting, then they can get back to living life in the moment. The ESFP has a great eye for fashion and aesthetics, and will usually bring a strong and stylish energy to their home and work spaces.
Enneagram Type 9 (9w8 9w1)
The Enneagram Type 9 is all about achieving inner peace. The Enneagram Type Nine is all about figuring out ways to live in harmony with their environment. This can lead them to being very creative and understandings of others. They can be very empathetic and prefer to compromise instead of imposing demands on others. However, this can be problematic if they sacrifice too much of themselves. The Enneagram 9 is at their best when they are being instinctual and know how to work with themselves and their environments. When they become detached from this spiritual and instinctual center, they can become too uptight and lose any momentum they have gained. The 9 is at the top of the Enneagram and therefore shares many of the traits of all the other types. The Nine must learn to assert themselves and their visions if they want to understand themselves better. It is much easier to attach to someone more assertive than them instead of understanding how they can strike out on their own. They would be their strongest if they approached a problem head on, instead of finding a way to tiptoe around it. The 9 is great at understanding others and creating harmony, they just need to learn that it is okay for them to apply themselves and go against the grain sometimes, especially if they feel very called to do so.
