What’s interesting is that 10 years ago, I took a similar test and was an ESFP. So half of me has flip-flopped. Maybe I should run for President. 🙂
About the ESTJ
“ESTJs live in a world of facts and concrete needs. They live in the present, with their eye constantly scanning their personal environment to make sure that everything is running smoothly and systematically. They honor traditions and laws, and have a clear set of standards and beliefs.”– Portrait of an ESTJ (The Personality Page)
“…go by experience and that is what counts, not speculation and experimentation, and certainly not fantasy. They keep their feet firmly on the ground and make sure that those under their supervision do the same…”– The Portrait of the Supervisor (eStJ) (Keirsey)
“responsible, finisher, decisive, norm following, respects authority, punctual, hard working, stiff, self confident”– Jung Type Descriptions (ESTJ) (similarminds.com)
“ESTJs thrive on order and continuity. Being extraverted, their focus involves organization of people, which translates into supervision. While ENTJs enjoy organizing and mobilizing people according to their own theories and tactically based agendas, ESTJs are content to enforce “the rules,” often dictated by tradition or handed down from a higher authority.”– ESTJ Profile (TypeLogic)
“ESTJs prefer occupations that require an organized, logical, and practical bent that incorporates an effective use of time and resources. They pay attention to the organization’s hierarchy and use policies and procedures to help them to move the tasks along. They like making decisions and dealing with concrete, specific facts.”– ESTJ – The Enforcer (Lifexplore)

About the ESTJ:
“ESTJs have an uncontrollable and insatiable desire to comment repeatedly on their own blog posts…” 🙂
I like the way they throw “stiff” in the midst of otherwise seemingly positive traits like responsible, finisher, punctual and self-confident.
