ESFPs are natural performers and like to entertain others. They know a lot of people and like most people equally. They are animated, fun-loving and enjoy being the center of attention. ESFPs are easy-going, optimistic, considerate people who like to laugh, talk and share common interests with friends. They are enthusiastic, high-spirited, social and spontaneous and find it difficult to work because they are so easily distracted. Down-to-earth and practical, they dislike theoretical or philosophical conversations. ESFPs are often unable to predict future events or see the consequences of their actions. Realistic and literal, ESFPs often notice beauty in their surroundings and take pride in their own appearance. Their clothes are usually free-flowing, comfortable and brightly colored. They also take pride in their busy social lives. They are often late, they don't mean to be, but they have many activities. ESFPs also forget appointments, but feel guilty when they do.
ESFPs are generous and eager-to-please, they make loyal friends and good companions. They accept life as it is, and rarely have hidden agendas. ESFPs are sensitive to other's needs and feelings, but also take rejection and criticism personally. They are usually open and expressive, but keep their most private feelings hidden, and because of this they can seem a little shallow. They dislike conflict so they try to avoid overbearing and insensitive people. ESFPs like to help others and are happy when their input makes a difference. Sympathetic and compassionate, ESFPs often get over involved in other people's emotional problems.
Warm, friendly and approachable, ESFPs enjoy people and parties. Their language is straight-forward and they usually ask a lot of questions. ESFPs are graceful and have a good sense of where they are in accordance to the world and make great dancers, gymnasts, ice-skaters and performers of all kinds. They have a desire to be respected, but seem naive and unreliable.

I love this description. The character Cossack the Terrible from Voltron that I like so much I'm pretty sure is ESFP. I think it really fits Homer, too.

That's great. Hehe, I barely remember Cossack but I did used to watch the show as a kid. It's definitely Homer. I like reading these with the fictional character in mind and after every few sentences thinking of an example from the show of what they did or said that fit the description. I can think of something with Homer for everything here.
