1. Emotions
ESEs are most driven by a need to promote the positivity of emotion in their immediate environment. For ESEs, the greatest priority lies in the quality of the mood around them, how people are feeling and whether that feeling is good or right for the occasion. Consequently, ESEs tend to make themselves responsible for keeping up the mood, expressively engaging in antics or coming up with activities that may excite and stimulate enjoyment in those around them. ESEs tend to be highly gregarious and possess a warm sense of humour, frequently attempting to make others laugh or smile and gaining satisfaction when successful. Similarly, they enjoy putting together events and gatherings of celebratory excitement, designing the situations best suited to bring people they identify with together in mutual fun. Essentially, ESEs want people to have a good time all the time and go to great lengths to ensure that everyone is enjoying themselves. Commonly, they also want the mood to be unifying and welcoming, reaching out to others and trying to involve them in the community. This can manifest in ESEs trying earnestly to include people who are not yet feeling the same way as others, attempting to cheer them up and encourage a sense of belonging. Participation is heartily encouraged, with ESEs striving to have their emotional states reciprocated by others so that no one feels left out. As such, ESEs are usually very capable at getting a large number of people interested and invested in proceedings as and while they are happening, bringing the experience of the moment to life. 

2. Senses

Frequently, the emotionality of ESEs is directed towards the enjoyment and celebration of day to day events and the happenings of the present. ESEs promote the ideal that life should be celebrated. As such the contents of life and its living are brought to the forefront of any celebration. ESEs are often known for lavish detail put into planning regular fixtures and events, such as birthday parties and graduation ceremonies. To aid the success of such events, ESEs will focus on the details that make them up, such as the placing of tables, the colours of balloons and other peripheral aesthetics that bring such communal gatherings to life for guests and audiences. As such, decorative additions to the environment serve as anchors for the mood the ESE wishes to create. Similarly, ESEs often put a lot of attention into the aesthetic of their appearance, wanting to look as welcoming, friendly and attractive as possible so that they are enjoyable to be around. This can manifest in a perfectionism, with ESEs trying to make sure that everything about themselves and the events they put on look just right to maximise the positive effect on company. Furthermore, ESEs tend to see themselves as hosts or caregivers to those they are entertaining, being responsible not only for the emotional well being of others, but also the physical needs and pains. This can manifest in ESEs insisting that their guests are looked after and well fed or spoiling their friends with lavish presents, even without them asking for such attention. As such, the provision of sensory fulfilment, whether in the form of food, music or comfy seats, helps to create a convivial atmosphere for all to feel at home in.

3. Pragmatism
ESEs tend to involve themselves enthusiastically in a large number of projects and often with their enthusiasm are given much responsibility. They easily able to create passion and emotional investment in themselves and care about their surroundings. For this reason, ESEs recognise the requirement for them to be productive and competent in organising events and making sure things operate well in their projects. ESEs tend to possess a passionate work ethic and when needed, will learn and improve their abilities in areas relevant to their commitments. In this way, they are able to put on a serious face and prove themselves as successful managers, taking care of multiple issues at once and capably handling problems, resulting in many relying on them to get things done effectively. However, such an approach is largely dictated by a desire not to let other people down, as the priority is not to do with how efficiently the process is working, but in terms of how people are affected by the process.The desired end is that people will appreciate their efforts, rather than them being personally satisfied with their competence. Indeed, sustained demands to improve and optimise one's actions can be a strain over time, with ESEs preferring clearer, more consistent frameworks to rely on for their understanding. When explaining things to others, ESEs tend to focus less on the strict, factual accuracy of what is being said, but the quality of performance and whether it raises people's passion for the topic. ESEs may be disposed towards hyperbole and exaggeration, tailoring the information they provide so that it is more exciting and fun to listen to or praising people when less praise is actually deserved. Excitement and fun are given precedence over dry informativeness, with ESEs using information and experience more to entertain and excite, rather than to accurately inform. 

4. Time

ESEs naturally prioritise the excitement and enjoyment of the mood in the here and now. As such, little thought is given to the longer term consequences of one's actions or what is likely to happen as a result of such enthusiasm. ESEs are largely unable to consider how things develop over time, not easily being able to see how events in the now will influence likelihoods in the future and having difficulty narrowing down possibilities to a singular outcome. This can greatly limit the ability of ESEs to plan ahead, especially in terms of foreseeing strategic steps towards a goal, being largely uncomfortable with making any decisions based on how things are likely to be in an unclear future. Being faced with information that at some point, some event is likely to happen will often be ignored, with ESEs opting to simply see what happens rather than commit with uncertainty. Instead, ESEs put their energies into all things that could be done in the here and now. Rather than planning and thinking ahead in their actions, ESEs tend to hustle and bustle about in the present, involving themselves as passionately as they can in the proceedings. Such an approach, while making the present exciting, frequently suffers from lack of foresight, with ESEs being largely unwilling to spoil the present mood, even when it seems that not doing so will lead to harsher circumstances later. ESEs tend to see those who criticise the current fun in terms of its long-term effects as antisocial contrarians, thus preserving the etiquette of a gathering while failing to grasp the more important message. Furthermore, the efforts that ESEs go to in order to create merriment can run at the expense of other plans, with the attention on exciting people rarely factoring in duration.

5. Laws
Given their focus on the fickle emotional atmosphere, ESEs tend to get caught up in the moment and lack the coherence of a formal thinking process. Instead, ESEs tend towards chaotic patterns, their emotive drives lacking clarity and sound reasoning beyond the happiness of the people around them. As such, they are greatly appreciative of others providing insightful and clear analyses of events, converting a range of complicated phenomena into simple and elegant systems of thought. Such systems provide a sense of priority and meaning for ESEs letting them get an understanding of the world around them in terms of how it all fits together and the laws from which a stable sense of truth can be deduced. Similarly, an orderly lifestyle is much appreciated with ESEs enjoying regular fixtures to celebrate around the year, such as birthdays or annual carnivals and festivals. This allows the ESE to better grasp when things are meant to happen and allows them to make plans according to a set time-frame. ESEs are frequently attracted to people who seem bookish or intelligent, who are able to make sense of their sometimes strong passions and opinions, explaining not merely that they feel a certain way but providing the reasons why and saing whether these feelings are conducive to the rational priorities of a coherent system. As such, ESEs benefit from a clearer, more sober way of looking at things and formulating well-structured propositions.

6. Ideas

ESEs enjoy opening their minds to the variety and novelty that the world has to offer. As such, they display a great curiosity in exploring new possibilities. Although enjoying order in their lives, ESEs dislike traditions that bore people with their stagnancy. Instead, they will frequently find new ideas for making things more exciting and attempt to implement these new opportunities in the day to day. ESEs enjoy brainstorming in groups of people, promoting the free and open exchange of ideas. In this way, the newness of possibilities is coupled with a communal enthusiasm for novelty and the desire to explore a multifaceted reality together. ESEs aspire to be seen by others as interesting people who lead a life of variety and breadth. They may try to share interesting pieces of information with others to excite their curiosity. Managing to blow the mind of a friend by introducing a brand new perspective of seeing the world is a great source of satisfaction to ESEs. Furthermore, their openness to possibilities, coupled with a lack of knowledge of long-term outcomes, means that ESEs can make themselves very busy preparing for multiple possibilities when in a position of authority. Rather than have a clear idea of how things may turn out, ESEs will think about almost every way it could turn out, leading them to fret over potential problems and issues that may turn up. As such, ESEs try to cover all areas. This can make their approach to activities and plans both chaotic and over-involved, doing everything they can do, rather than the few things they should do, just in case they choose wrongly and suffer the consequences.

7. Relations
With their overwhelming focus on the emotional atmosphere surrounding them in the present, ESEs largely reject their personal attitudes and sentiments. Although able to maintain meaningful relationships with others and enlist people's help or loyalty in putting together communal activities, ESEs tend to ignore how they are feeling unless it is somehow conducive to how everyone else is feeling or should be made to feel. The general mood of the people around them is frequently treated as the priority and if depressed, ESEs will usually try to keep up an appearance of jollity, only stopping to handle their own needs and sentiments away from company. Despite this, the emotional nature of ESEs can often lead to a dynamic array of personal, sentimental responses that they feel the need to check and control for the sake of others. Alternatively, when their personal sentiments are conducive, ESEs will use them to direct the surrounding mood, expressing how they personally feel to others in the hopes that they will accept those emotions and reciprocate as a group. As such, when an ESE feels that something amazing or terrible has happened and that people must know about it, they will be the first to let everyone know and include them in collective discussion.

8. Force
ESEs are proactive individuals who frequently exercise their control of events in the present. They are usually hyperactive in their behaviour and physically noticeable, easily commanding attention and causing things to happen the way ESEs want them to. However, ESEs dislike conflict and disharmony in their environment, putting much of their energy into keeping the peace between people and reducing tension in the environment in favour of safe, friendly emotions. ESEs make effective leaders in a social situation and easily take charge of the situation, or at least command a great deal of attention. Nevertheless, they do not wilfully seek to control the environment around them and do not intentionally attempt to establish dominance or be the boss of others. Instead, they simply have a tireless energy that and physical presence that causes others to go along with their passions and ideas. In fact, ESEs may go to lengths to deliberately come across as friendly and easygoing to others, playing down their natural toughness so that everyone can feel at ease and not coerced. They feel little need to force others to take them seriously, often subverting this by trying to come across as silly or humorous instead. Despite being perfectly capable of taking charge of a situation, ESEs dismantle the aggressive pressures of others by creating an environment where people can feel they safely belong. However, ESEs are capable of being angered and in rare situations can explode with hysterical temper, especially when feeling unappreciated or they feel someone is upsetting other people or sabotaging their efforts. Although feeling terrible about doing so later, they find that people will suddenly be very quick to do what they want.
