what is the difference between ser and estar ?

To be or not to be... "ser" Vs "estar" in Spanish Lets break it down to the core differences and common examples... if in doubt: ser - mainly permanent ! descriptions of a (largely) permanent condition - a physical trait / characteristic e.g: el es un chico muy majo nationality / religious orientation e.g: soy inglesa y soy budista profession e.g: el es arquitecto (remember: no article before profession!) estar - mainly temporary ! descriptions of a condition / emotion that will likely change e.g: el profesor está enfadado location e.g: estamos en el restaurante something that is happening e.g: está lloviendo what is the difference between: "ella es guapa" + "hoy ella está guapa" and how can the same apply to majo and enfadado ?
