    Thank you Halla, But I am trying to see observations by others.
    I'm so glad you thought my comments correct. I would have lost hours of sleep if you didn't.

    Also, how does anything in my response limit subsequent observations of other?

    Please relax.

    We're both smart enough to know success comes from anything BUT that stereotypical bullshit.
    I need Jaeger shots and beer now. First round is on me! I've just read through alot of B.S. in this thread. It's ridiculous how many people on this forum are blindsided by stereotypes. I could have done something productive in the time I took to read this, like take a shit.

    Exactly.

    Statistically, there are at least 2x more ESTPs than there are ENTJs in the world. So as a whole, it's hard to say.

    But the average ESTP isn't more likely to be successful than the average ENTJ. Maybe at X Games, but that's it.

    ESTPs in their rush to get things done tend to get things done more than ENTJs do. Some ENTJs tend to think too much. And their get things done function (Se) in only tertiary. Whereas ESTP have it as the dominant.

    Am I correct theoretically? (Se point I made)
    or / and
    Am I correct according to your observations?

    To make things much easier I am adding a voting function.
    Not voting. To little input. I think my brother might be ESTP, he for sure get's a lot more things done then me. But on the other hand, If I commit to a project it usually turns out remarkably well. Whereas, with him, EVERYTHING he does just turns out one way or another. He can get most things done, but I wouldn't for instance put him in a creative process if I were his boss.

    Don't have much experiences with ENTJ's.
