ESTP vs ISFP
Here’s how you can connect with your friend better:
Encourage your friend to speak up
Your friend prefers not to speak unless necessary. Engage him/her by encouraging your friend to speak, and then listen attentively!
Your friend prefers to take his/her time to think through the issue before speaking. Don’t be impatient and move on to the next issue before he/she speaks.
Be gentle and affirming
Sometimes, your careless words may offend or hurt your friend. If it happens, apologize and adopt a more positive tone of speaking. Be gentle and affirming.
Leave your friend to solitude
Your friend does his/her best work when alone. Don’t interrupt that solitude; instead come back to him/her later.
Give your friend time alone
In the same vein, there are times when your friend just wants to be alone. Don’t ask him/her why – sometimes your friend just needs it and won’t have a reason to tell you. Your friend may come and go unannounced – let it be.
