Entertainer (ESFP) - CANCER

Who is an Entertainer (ESFP)?

Entertainers are individuals with the Extraverted, Sensing, Feeling and Perceiving personality traits. They tend to be playful, energetic and fun-loving people who loves to be where the action is. Spontaneous and enthusiastic by nature, entertainers are known to fill their lives with hobbies, activities and - most importantly - friends!

Entertainer/Cancer have an overwhelming desire to feel loved and appreciated in order to develop a sense of security and identity and their sense of home is incredibly important to their feeling of safety. They find it hard to achieve anything unless they feel safe and comfortable in their home lives. Normally protective and courageous, these people can however become very brooding and moody if they feel that their emotional needs are not being met. Because of their rather clingy natures they tend to be sensitive to the needs of others. In addition to having a strong awareness of their surroundings, they are also very understanding and perceptive when it comes to other people. They are able to sense what others are feeling and know how to respond. People tend to find them warm, sympathetic, and easygoing. One common myth is that they are attention-seekers. While they are fun-loving and do not shun the spotlight, they are more interested in simply living in the present and doing what feels right at that moment.

These people have excellent people skills! They are talkative, witty, and almost never run out of things to discuss. For people with this personality type, happiness and satisfaction stem from the time they spend with the people they enjoy being with. Many tend to have an odd sense of humor, and can sometimes find humor in situations where others don't see it. This means they are great to have around when things are not going great - they will bring with them their innate understanding of how to care for people alongside that humor. They are very understanding people, and work well as friends. Entertainer/Cancer like to make an impact, so a job that harnesses their creativity, passion, and cleverness is ideal. Whether they’re rapidly assessing someone’s injury in an emergency room or acting on stage, they enjoy responding to their environment and dealing with the unexpected. A lot of routine and predictability will make them bored and listless. They also crave a job that lets them work with friends and gives them a variety of new experiences. Bonus points if those careers utilize their natural aesthetic sense or realistic point of view.

In relationships, they are generous, friendly, sympathetic, and affectionate. Entertainer/Cancer are eager to please their partners and motivated to create a fun, harmonious, and active home. They often enjoy family life tremendously and typically prioritize socializing with loved ones above all else. They are supportive of their mates and try to take good care of their families, but can be impulsive as they pursue the pleasures of life. They may go where the wind blows and neglect to follow up on responsibilities. They are searching for a lover that they can build a comforting home with. They therefore are very committed lovers, and expect their lovers to be the same. Infidelity is one of the worst nightmares of this personality. They need to feel loved and appreciated, and will have depressive moods if they feel neglected by their partner. In relationships they are deeply reliant on their partner’s attention, and some of them may struggle with problems of codependency. Problems within a relationship may lead to some compulsive lying in order to protect themselves. So it is important to remember their insecurities, and to forgive small transgressions as they are often rooted in feeling unloved. Reminding them of how much you value them and how needed they are is key to the relationship.

Entertainer/Cancer love people, and everybody loves an Entertainer/Cancer. One of their greatest gifts is their general acceptance of everyone. They are upbeat and enthusiastic, and genuinely like almost everybody. Unfailingly warm and generous with their friends, they generally treat everyone as a friend. However, once crosesed, they are likely to make a very strong and stubborn judgment against the person who crossed them. They are capable of deep dislike in such a situation.
