At the very beginning of the zombie apocalypse, perhaps when it seems like a temporary situation, some ESFPs might be tempted to throw a zombie apocalypse party… or a gathering where people can talk about the craziness going on in the world. As things get worse, ESFPs will still want to find ways to sneak fun into life wherever possible. This may mean having a campfire sing-along, telling stories to the group, or passing notes under the table at dinner, but they will not want themselves or others to lose all enjoyment in life just because the world as they know it has ended.
Eventually, ESFPs may learn to find protecting others, by killing zombies or other means, exhilarating, people-focused, and practical. While they probably won’t see the zombie apocalypse as the most fun thing ever, ESFPs will go with the flow, get things done as they arise, and keep relationships and practical people matters in mind, and they will certainly add a caring presence to the group and those they encounter.
In looking at the characters on The Walking Dead, the person who comes to mind as most closely matching the description of an ESFP is Maggie.
