solid figures. Slim ESTPs have slow and phlegmatic movements, giving

fragile appearance. Solid ESTPs have free and flexible movements. When
standing in one place they tend to wriggle rhythmically as if they have
a slight electric current running through them.

ESTPs rarely wear eye-catching clothes. They try to maintain a neutral
style of clothes, steering away from fashion. Females prefer not to
wear very bright or colourful clothing. Males have an inclination to
official styles of clothing such as suits etc. ESTPs generally prefer

When in conversation, ESTPs always show self restraint and tact. They
generally interact in an open and friendly manner, always showing positive
emotions. They do not like to openly express their opinions. During
interaction ESTPs always try to show that they are paying full attention
and that they understand their interlocutor very well. One of the ways
they do this is by asking many questions concerning personal problems
or opinions. They do this with masterful tact and delicacy, therefore
gaining other peoples trust very quickly.
ESTPs have a very characteristic way of behaving when in conversation.
They can pause for long periods of time before replying to questions
or statements. This can give the impression that they are assimilating
the received information. In situations such as these they usually squint.
ESTPs are never afraid to show others that they did not understand or
do not know something and therefore never hesitate ask people to repeat
or to specify what they said. ESTPs enjoy showing their understand and
explaining things to others. They always do this slowly and methodically
giving simple, practical examples. They also prefer to have the last
word in conversations, concluding the dialogue themselves.
When in confrontation, ESTPs quickly focus on their opponents weaknesses,
usually destroying them with one perfectly placed phrase. If this opportunity
does not manifest itself, they have the skills to provoke the reaction
they desire. ESTPs are very slow to anger. And when they do become angered
it is very difficult for them to calm down. They like games that require
quick thinking and tactics and often win these games as they have great
skill misleading and provoking their opponents into making bad moves.
ESTPs have cast-iron self-control and nearly always achieve their goals.
If required they can step on anyone or anything often ignoring ethics
completely if the situation calls for it. If a project becomes too big
and difficult for them to control by themselves, they will delegate
the less important parts of the project, giving others complete independence
to make their own decisions. ESTPs do not care much how people achieve
results. They give others complete independence to choose their own
method of working, as they consider the end result to be more important.
ESTPs are very tactically minded and know how to adapt to changing situations
very quickly. They know how to arrange people according to their abilities
and usefulness. They prefer to adopt an informal and unofficial leadership.
They also do not like doing their own dirty work. ESTPs are hard working
and extremely persevering people. The more obstacles they meet the more
obvious these qualities become. They do not react well to unchallenging
situations. They truly come alive in the face of adversity. ESTPs are
inclined to give ultimatums.
