ESTJ Introduction

Extraversion. Sensing. Thinking. Judging

ESTJs are objective, straightforward and planned in their work. They thrive under established organisations with well-defined roles and responsibilities.

They are results-oriented, efficient and competent in their work. While ESTJs are gregarious and engaging in social settings, they are serious and responsible when it comes to upholding their duty as parent, staff or citizen.

They usually trust ideas that are tried and tested and are wary of any new initiatives that are yet to be proven. They may appear slow when processing new information and may appear inflexible.

“Let’s get straight to it.”

ESTJs are productive and organised in planning their lives. They have schedules, budgets and plans, and they stick to them as much as possible. Their calendars are often filled with business and social activity which are usually intentionally planned.

Their desire for organisation and closure sometimes gets on the nerves of others who do not want to make a decision so quickly. They may come across as overbearing or opinionated as a result.

“Nobody cares.”

Their Feeling (F) is the weakest of their mental functions. This means that under stress, their Feeling function may come out in an undeveloped or a childish manner.

As a result, they may experience sadness, loneliness or even self-doubt when put under great stress.
