    Husband comes home on Friday... "WEEKEND!" If there's no housework to do (well he IS an ESTJ after all) he's in totally relaxed weekend mode, talking nonsense the whole time.
    I (being a real ENTP) have always still some work to do, mixing it up with play... and if deadline comes, I need to keep TWO Nes silent!
    (of course, the "right" solution to this is doing the work first and enjoy the weekend...)
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    ^ I'd recommend, if he has any work to do, saying "Hey, let's set aside an hour or two to do our work, and then when we're done, we can do fun things!" And then you can both do your work at the same time, so he won't be distracting you. But if he distracts you anyway when he's supposed to be working (which is what I do when I'm in Ne mode and just want to chat with people instead of working), shutting him down and telling him he should be working is good Sounds bad when I say it like that, but we ESTJs don't take it personally.

    ...And your idea works really well too Yeah, that'd probably be better.

    Edit: Maybe it's just me, but I feel like I'm not in "Te mode" for the majority of the time. But the way I imagine "Te mode" is a humorless, bossy sort of mode. I dunno. You watched my video, right? That was pretty much my default mode, and... eh, I'm overthinking this. Never mind.
    No, I didn't see it. Link?

    Most people have trouble seeing their dominant function in themselves, though. It's so ingrained into your perspective that it seems like the default "normal" perspective and it's hard to see how anything could be different.

    Kind of like how you don't notice the smell of your own house because you're so used to it.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    So true. Especially true if it was the ESTJ who cleaned it. Regardless of whether anyone cares whether it's clean, the ESTJ cares, and therefore the ESTJ is happy, and proud of his/her work. This happens to me a lot. Example from when I was a kid:

    Me: Hey! Come check out my room! I spend like five hours cleaning it! Isn't it pretty???
    My dad: I don't see any difference...
    Me:

    That's really interesting. I guess, for me, that's reinforced by the fact that the stereotype about Te is bossiness and forcing your view on other people, and I'm not overbearing like that.

    And that's why we love you EJCC. You can clean my room any time, too.
    Love is the point.

    Joking answer: I'll clean YOUR MOM'S room! WHOA!

    Hey, I have another question:

    How important is social status (ex: wealth, power, position) to a ESTJ?

    It can be very important, or not important at all - i.e. it depends. If other ESTJs are like me, they really want respect and recognition for what they do. Some ESTJs think of that in terms of social status, but not all of them.

    I'm gonna go with "very important" on this one. I need to be seen and respected for the value I have and what I do, and it needs to be shown to me.
