“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
– Winston Churchill, an ESTP
ESTPs are known for their exciting, action-oriented personalities and their skill at living totally in the moment. They are often called The Doers and it’s not hard to see why. They thrive on seeing opportunities as they arise and making the most of them. They enjoy a fast-paced lifestyle with new and exciting challenges at every turn. They are intensely logical, but also have a devil-may-care charm that makes them fun and thrilling to be around. ESTPs use their masterful Extraverted Sensing (Se) to live fully in the moment, noticing every sight, sound, and texture around them. They are extremely aware of their environment and often have a strong physical awareness and grace. They use their auxiliary Introverted Thinking (Ti) to keep a logical perspective when making decisions, and to obtain a vast breadth of knowledge in all of their interests.
You’ll find famous ESTPs throughout history with a number of roles and talents; some names include Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Harry Houdini.
