How ESFPs can irritate others
Each personality type can potentially irritate other people in their own particular way.
How ESFPs might irritate others
The potential ways in which an ESFP can irritate others include taking criticism personally, acting too quickly (without appearing to think things through), and focusing too much on the current task at the expense of longer term or interpersonal issues. As a result of your pragmatic approach, you may sometimes not see the wood for the trees, or not taking account of objective considerations such as cost or the need for a critical analysis. You may also tend to turn to a new problem before the last one has been fully completed.
How to improve relationships
You can overcome personality type differences by learning about your similarities and differences with other people. This leads to greater understanding, appreciation, and respect. Also, if you learn to adapt your style this will make you more influential and respected.
There is a comprehensive guide on how to do this in the book Influencing People Using Myers Briggs. This is available as an option when you complete the personality test.
