Myers-Briggs Personality Type: ESFP
Extraverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving
As an ESFP, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you take things in via your five senses in a literal, concrete fashion. Your secondary mode is internal, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit with your personal value system.
ESFPs live in the world of people possibilties. They love people and new experiences. They are lively and fun, and enjoy being the center of attention. They live in the here-and-now, and relish excitement and drama in their lives.
ESFPs have very strong inter-personal skills, and may find themselves in the role of the peacemaker frequently. Since they make decisions by using their personal values, they are usually very sympathetic and concerned for other people's well-being. They're usually quite generous and warm. They are very observant about other people, and seem to sense what is wrong with someone before others might, responding warmly with a solution to a practical need. They might not be the best advice-givers in the world, because they dislike theory and future-planning, but they are great for giving practical care.
ESFP is definitely a spontaneous, optimistic individual. They love to have fun. If the ESFP has not developed their Thinking side by giving consideration to rational thought processing, they tend to become over-indulgent, and place more importance on immediate sensation and gratification than on their duties and obligations. They may also avoid looking at long-term consequences of their actions.
For the ESFP, the entire world is a stage. They love to be the center of attention and perform for people. They're constantly putting on a show for others to entertain them and make them happy. They enjoy stimulating other people's senses, and are extremely good at it. They would love nothing more than for life to be a continual party, in which they play the role of the fun-loving host.
ESFPs love people, and everybody loves an ESFP. One of their greatest gifts is their general acceptance of everyone. They are upbeat and enthusiastic, and genuinely like almost everybody. An ESFP is unfailingly warm and generous with their friends, and they generally treat everyone as a friend. However, once crosesed, an ESFP is likely to make a very strong and stubborn judgment against the person who crossed them. They are capable of deep dislike in such a situation.
The ESFP under a great deal of stress gets overwhelmed with negatives thoughts and possibilities. As an optimistic individual who lives in the world of possibilities, negative possibilities do not sit well with them. In an effort to combat these thoughts, they're likely to come up with simple, global statements to explain away the problem. These simplistic explanations may or may not truly get to the nature of the issue, but they serve the ESFP well by allowing them to get over it.
ESFPs are likely to be very practical, although they hate structure and routine. They like to "go with the flow", trusting in their ability to improvise in any situation presented to them. They learn best with "hands-on" experience, rather than by studying a book. They're uncomfortable with theory. If an ESFP hasn't developed their intuitive side, they may tend to avoid situations which involve a lot of theoretical thinking, or which are complex and ambiguous. For this reason, an ESFP may have difficulty in school. On the other hand, the ESFP does extremely well in situations where they're allowed to learn by interacting with others, or in which they "learn by doing".
ESFPs have a very well-developed appreciation for aesthetic beauty, and an excellent sense of space and function. If they have the means, they're likely to have to have many beautiful possessions, and an artfully furnished home. In general, they take great pleasure in objects of aesthetic beauty. They're likely to have a strong appreciation for the finer things in life, such as good food and good wine.
The ESFP is a great team player. He or she is not likely to create any problems or fuss, and is likely to create the most fun environment possible for getting the task done. ESFPs will do best in careers in which they are able to use their excellent people skills, along with their abilities to meld ideas into structured formats. Since they are fast-paced individuals who like new experiences, they should choose careers which offer or require a lot of diversity, as well as people skills.
ESFPs usually like to feel strongly bonded with other people, and have a connection with animals and small children that is not found in most other types. They're likely to have a strong appreciation for the beauties of nature as well.
The ESFP has a tremendous love for life, and knows how to have fun. They like to bring others along on their fun-rides, and are typically a lot of fun to be with. They're flexible, adaptable, genuinely interested in people, and usually kind-hearted. They have a special ability to get a lot of fun out of life, but they need to watch out for the pitfalls associated with living entirely in the moment.
Powers and Abilities
These abilities come innately to the Sha'lesk.
Thermal Vision: Ishaila can innately change her vision to see heat signatures. Useful for when an area is covered in smoke, or fog, or.. finding those pesky Bane Spiders.
Dark Vision: Ishaila can also perceive shapes even in the absence of light, but this does not mean she can see cloaked targets, as they generally bend the light around them.
True Sight: Ishaila can also innately perceive magic in its purist essence, how potent it is determines how she visualizes it, the stronger it is, the brighter she perceives it.
Absorb Magic: Ishaila innately absorbs magic from her surroundings to an extent.
Ishaila can use her regeneration to do various abilities with her body, from spines to hardened scales to, increased strength and healing.
Vitality: Ishaila has a unusual amount of stamina, rarely running out of energy unless her body is put under unusually difficult duress.
Rejuvenation: Ishaila's body is unusually durable, able to recover from about any wound, magic or otherwise.
Ishaila inherited these traits from her mother.
Absorb Energy: Ishaila can absorb most anything energy based, with exception of kinetic based weaponry, such as guns, railguns, or simply bashing her face in. Heat, Electricity, or simple Energy Blasts, she will take in like a sponge.
Her power armor only suppliments her already potent abilities, making her nearly impossible to detect.
Crystalline Properties: This suit has a unique magical transmutation enchantment put on it by Ishaila, the once Impervium outer shell now a odd crystalline arrangement, allowing for superior energy and ballistic deflection, in addition to lessened weight and odd distruption of most means of detection, these properties also allows Ishaila to shift and change the suit to her needs, as long as there is enough mass to compensate.
Chameleon Camo System MK-1: A self developed stealth technology by Ishalia herself, effectively bends light around her so well that it makes her incapable of being seen on the any light spectrum, in addition the field the suit projects around her also dampens the sound she produces.
Aegis Targeting Array MK-1: This built in AI allows for advanced profiling of targets, finding weakpoints and even detecting and determining the direction of fire towards her if applicable by using a complex array of detectors.
Isha's Voice Mail
[Feel free to leave notes about what your character thinks of Isha!]
Mitriad Xy'vitz : Mitriad believe that Ishaila's race, the Sha'lesk is the next stage evolution of the Gatririan , another race of warm blooded space faring reptile.... Altough Mitriad consider Ishaila as a Sister-at-arm and will always assists her, Mitriad even turned herself into a Sha'lesk trough genetic splicing and she consider herself as a kin to Ishaila. She have a lot of respect toward her.
In Progress... I know.. too many.. friends!
