Rick James – ESFP
In this post we’ll take a look at the notoriously wild and crazy, Rick James.
One of the first things that stands out about him from a profiling perspective was that he was an over-the-top hedonist and a very physical, hot-blooded performer. This is indicative of Extraverted Sensing, a function prominent to all Sensor-Perceiver types (types with S and P in their letter code).
“You can’t have rock and roll without drugs, you can’t have rock and roll without sex.”
ESFPs can be very physically and musically talented. They tend to be particular about their music, due to their Introverted Feeling function, which evaluates things based on how they feel about them.
They’re often very good with people and can be very good at getting what they want, either through charm, or, through employment of their tertiary function, Extraverted Thinking, which can manifest as forcefulness or manipulation.
“I had always been a free spirit and always gotten what I wanted.”
