    Default Overachiever and MBTI types

    So which type would be more likely to overachieve?

    Wasn't there something about ENTJs being the overachievers?

    in my opinion, ESTJs would probably be overachieving as far as career/job goes. the SFJs would probably overachieve with family and traditions.

    although, I think you could pin an overachieving label on most of the types when it comes to one thing or another. INTPs might be overachievers at gathering as much data as possible, for instance.

    The only type that doesn't overachieve at anything is the ENFP. amirite

    Yes, i believe there is a very high chance for ENTJ to overachive. So would yearly income be a good indication of overachieving types?

    I figured ESTJs/ENTJs . My science high school was full of them and I nicknamed them "overachievers".
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.

    No way! I'm not an overachiever--just a perfectionist.

    So the type who is more likely to overachieve is characterized by the need to be seen as successful. What drives those extrovert to lead...it just seems too much trouble to me.

    Overachievers are types that are preoccupied with status, most likely ExTJ's and possibly ESTP's.
