David West Keirsey

The Performer Artisan is one of the 16 role variants of the Keirsey Temperament Sorter,[1] a self-assessed personality questionnaire designed to help people better understand themselves. David Keirsey originally described the Performer role variant; however, a brief summary of the personality types described by Isabel Myers contributed to its development. Performers correlate with the ESFP Myers-Briggs type.[2]

OverviewEdit

Performers are tactical entertainers, concrete in speech and utilitarian in action. In social situations, they are informative and expressive.[2] The most fun-loving of all the types, Performers excel at delighting others with their artistry and humor. They continually seek stimulating experiences with those around them. Performers dislike being alone, which is seldom a problem because they naturally attract the attention of other people. They live in the fast lane, keeping abreast of the latest trends. They are drawn to sensory pleasure, sometimes without thought for the consequences. Though Performers are more subject to temptation than the other types, their zest for enjoying life is mostly a healthy pursuit. Incurable optimists, they are generous to a fault. They live in the moment and trust that tomorrow will take care of itself. [1]

Notable PerformersEdit

Bill Clinton

According to Keirsey,[1] Bill Clinton may be a Performer.

For illustrative purposes, Keirsey and his son, David M. Keirsey,[3] have identified well-known individuals whose behavior is consistent with a specific type. Unless otherwise noted, the categorization of the individuals below, whether living or dead, as Performers is a matter of expert opinion rather than the result of the named individual taking a personality type inventory.
