ESTP Personality 

The ESTP Personality is all about living in the fast lane. The ESTP is a man or woman of action. They thrive on being on the go and experimenting with how far they can push themselves in the environment around them. The ESTP loves being the center of attention and will usually find ways to stand out and entertain others. Being in the middle of the action allows them to make snap decisions and tests their logic in real time. They always find a way to land on their feet, even if it seems like they’re making big mistakes along the way. It’s how they learn. The older the ESTP gets, the wiser they become because they are constantly testing the limits of reality and verifying if what other people are saying is true. By the time they are in their 50s, they have a lifetime of experiences that allow them to properly size up any moment or situation they find themselves in. They also tend to give great advice, even if they are not up for implementing it themselves. They need to make sure they are not over-extending themselves and take the time to slow down to take care of their bodies and their well being. The ESTP can become a bit paranoid and expect the worst when they can’t properly read a situation or find the people around them too unpredictable. However, if they recognize their mind playing tricks on them, they can go back to making better decisions and being adaptable in the moment.
