    Default ESTJ - one modest type that needs more appreciation

    Simplest form of logic:

    "If according to MBTI ESTJ make for good administrators in an office for example.

    But according to general perception (which is limited to this forum of course ), they only get there by exercising their "mean" powers onto others.

    Wouldnt that also mean that they have great interpersonal skills ?"

    Seen thru a mirror not so darkly, I think ESTJ can be one of the most modest and most insightful types of them all; cause they have an unique set of functions at their disposal, which does not only allow them to organize their environment to generate a productive team effort, but also enables them to gain the trust in a team member to see over the coffee pot and go new ways, which arent exactly in the book (yes the team member is me ).

    I wanted to express my appreciation for the ESTJs, who are sometimes used as a scapegoat in the forums far too often, if someone is at his end with his Latin and can only resort to insults; and of course the ESTJs, who never tried to actively start a campaign to better the perception of themselves, but rather live and let live.

    Thanks to you being my boss, you can be a pain in the ass sometimes, but I need that sometimes and thanks for your intrest you put into hearing my ideas and your courage to go down an experimental way together with me.

    That is so sweet.. I don't know of any ESTJ's, but if they are anything like the ISFJ's than I love them..

    But no! You've got it all wrong! ESTJs are all awful people!

    But for real, I think that ESTJs are great people too. Most people get a negative impression of them because ESTJs often find themselves in a management position or some position of leadership, etc. They basically see the ESTJ's "work face", and don't really know what it's like to have one as a friend.

    Yep... An ESTJ as a friend or family member is always trying to think of how to take care of you.

    I think my grandad was an ESTJ, he had a lot of awesome qualities, about the friendliest and most talkative person you could come across. He got a lot of s**t done in his lifetime, always impressed me.

    They certainly do

    Oh, and BlackCat - I think it's also that unhealthy ESTJs are pretty memorable (obviously not in a good way), and some people have trouble seeing that all ESTJs aren't like that.

    EDIT: Interesting that you use the word "modest", Entropie. Growing up, I was quite arrogant... but that was probably from a lack of maturity.

    Oh, you didn't know? That ESTJ is me.

    But in all seriousness... I dunno.

    entropie, what inspired you? I'm curious now.
