Header for ESTJ page

“There are two kinds of people: the ones who need to be told, and the ones who figure it out all by themselves.”

Tom Clancy – ESTJ

The ESTJs

are known for their hard-working, swift-thinking demeanor and their astounding ability to produce rapid results for their efforts. They are often referred to as The Guardians, and this is because they believe strongly in protecting laws, traditions, standards, and their beliefs. The ESTJ is a take-charge person, with a clear vision of how things should be and a knack for leadership and organization. ESTJs believe in responsibility, following through on their commitments, being moral citizens, and being competent in their careers and duties. The ESTJ has masterful use of Extraverted Thinking (Te) which gives them the ability to form logical plans and processes for accomplishing tasks, and also making sure these tasks are completed in a timely manner. They think through things objectively and logically, and try to keep their feelings and emotions outside of their decision-making process. ESTJs also have well-developed Introverted Sensing (Si), which gives them a keen eye for detail and a strong memory of historical information. ESTJs can quickly recollect past information and components, and see if things in the present match up or if there are any discrepancies.

You’ll find a wide variety of ESTJs in numerous careers ranging from counseling to politics to communications; Dr. Phil, Condoleezza Rice, Michelle Obama, Sonia Sotomayor, and Billy Graham are all ESTJs.
