ESEs are most driven by a need to promote the positivity of emotion in their immediate environment. For ESEs, the greatest priority lies in the quality of the mood around them, how people are feeling and whether that feeling is good or right for the occasion. Consequently, ESEs tend to make themselves responsible for keeping up the mood, expressively engaging in antics or coming up with activities that may excite and stimulate enjoyment in those around them. ESEs tend to be highly gregarious and possess a warm sense of humour, frequently attempting to make others laugh or smile and gaining satisfaction when successful. Similarly, they enjoy putting together events and gatherings of celebratory excitement, designing the situations best suited to bring people they identify with together in mutual fun. Essentially, ESEs want people to have a good time all the time and go to great lengths to ensure that everyone is enjoying themselves. Commonly, they also want the mood to be unifying and welcoming, reaching out to others and trying to involve them in the community. This can manifest in ESEs trying earnestly to include people who are not yet feeling the same way as others, attempting to cheer them up and encourage a sense of belonging. Participation is heartily encouraged, with ESEs striving to have their emotional states reciprocated by others so that no one feels left out. As such, ESEs are usually very capable at getting a large number of people interested and invested in proceedings as and while they are happening, bringing the experience of the moment to life.
ESEs tend to involve themselves enthusiastically in a large number of projects and often with their enthusiasm are given much responsibility. They easily able to create passion and emotional investment in themselves and care about their surroundings. For this reason, ESEs recognise the requirement for them to be productive and competent in organising events and making sure things operate well in their projects. ESEs tend to possess a passionate work ethic and when needed, will learn and improve their abilities in areas relevant to their commitments. In this way, they are able to put on a serious face and prove themselves as successful managers, taking care of multiple issues at once and capably handling problems, resulting in many relying on them to get things done effectively. However, such an approach is largely dictated by a desire not to let other people down, as the priority is not to do with how efficiently the process is working, but in terms of how people are affected by the process.The desired end is that people will appreciate their efforts, rather than them being personally satisfied with their competence. Indeed, sustained demands to improve and optimise one's actions can be a strain over time, with ESEs preferring clearer, more consistent frameworks to rely on for their understanding. When explaining things to others, ESEs tend to focus less on the strict, factual accuracy of what is being said, but the quality of performance and whether it raises people's passion for the topic. ESEs may be disposed towards hyperbole and exaggeration, tailoring the information they provide so that it is more exciting and fun to listen to or praising people when less praise is actually deserved. Excitement and fun are given precedence over dry informativeness, with ESEs using information and experience more to entertain and excite, rather than to accurately inform.

Given their focus on the fickle emotional atmosphere, ESEs tend to get caught up in the moment and lack the coherence of a formal thinking process. Instead, ESEs tend towards chaotic patterns, their emotive drives lacking clarity and sound reasoning beyond the happiness of the people around them. As such, they are greatly appreciative of others providing insightful and clear analyses of events, converting a range of complicated phenomena into simple and elegant systems of thought. Such systems provide a sense of priority and meaning for ESEs letting them get an understanding of the world around them in terms of how it all fits together and the laws from which a stable sense of truth can be deduced. Similarly, an orderly lifestyle is much appreciated with ESEs enjoying regular fixtures to celebrate around the year, such as birthdays or annual carnivals and festivals. This allows the ESE to better grasp when things are meant to happen and allows them to make plans according to a set time-frame. ESEs are frequently attracted to people who seem bookish or intelligent, who are able to make sense of their sometimes strong passions and opinions, explaining not merely that they feel a certain way but providing the reasons why and saing whether these feelings are conducive to the rational priorities of a coherent system. As such, ESEs benefit from a clearer, more sober way of looking at things and formulating well-structured propositions.
With their overwhelming focus on the emotional atmosphere surrounding them in the present, ESEs largely reject their personal attitudes and sentiments. Although able to maintain meaningful relationships with others and enlist people's help or loyalty in putting together communal activities, ESEs tend to ignore how they are feeling unless it is somehow conducive to how everyone else is feeling or should be made to feel. The general mood of the people around them is frequently treated as the priority and if depressed, ESEs will usually try to keep up an appearance of jollity, only stopping to handle their own needs and sentiments away from company. Despite this, the emotional nature of ESEs can often lead to a dynamic array of personal, sentimental responses that they feel the need to check and control for the sake of others. Alternatively, when their personal sentiments are conducive, ESEs will use them to direct the surrounding mood, expressing how they personally feel to others in the hopes that they will accept those emotions and reciprocate as a group. As such, when an ESE feels that something amazing or terrible has happened and that people must know about it, they will be the first to let everyone know and include them in collective discussion.
