    Lol, I didn't even notice this question - I'm sorry raz

    Anyhoo, this is an outside-the-box answer, but here it is anyways.

    My list of ESTJ ingredients:
    1. Salt (i.e. all business, no creativity. The ESTJ stereotype.)
    2. Cheddar cheese (i.e. charming, gregarious, people-friendly - ESTJs that scored low on T, or that have very well developed Fe.)
    3. Worcestershire sauce (i.e. bizarre and excitable ESTJ filled with Ne: "OMG what if I turned this scrap wood into a CHAIR ")
    4. BEER (i.e. the MACHO ESTJ :workout
    5. Cayenne pepper (i.e. the ESTJ that's about as subtle as a slap in the face. This is the ESTJ that everyone complains about on TypeC.)


    Mix well, add some other things, and you get... ESTJ WELSH RAREBIT!



    Now here's the answer: There are five flavors of ESTJ! Because each ESTJ is more of one of those flavors than the others, but (in my opinion) has moments where each flavor shows up. This theory is only preliminary but it seems to work okay.

    I wonder which flavor you are EJCC

    Here's my question:
    What do you think of money?

    Hey Chris! Where've you been? You should answer some questions in here when they come up. Or, at least, think about your possible answers to some that I've already answered, and compare our answers. Because I always love to hear how TypeC's ESTJs compare. You guys hardly ever show up, after all and it gets kinda lonely here in the Guardhouse without other ESTJs to chat with.

    I'm going to ignore how creepy that sounded, and say, within the boundaries I made in my previous post... cheddar cheese. Though I was in a Worcestershire sauce sort of mood when I wrote all that

    Here's my question:
    What do you think of money?
    I think of money in a very utilitarian way. I earn it, and use it to get things I need. It's a necessity in the world we live in. Sometimes I wish we had a barter system still But in today's world, people are less likely to get scammed out of their hard-earned resources than they were hundreds of years ago when they measured their wealth in livestock. But that's just my (slightly uneducated) opinion.

    Oh crap. I've got to keep on a diet poor in salt. Do I really have to cut down on ESTJs?
    Or... wouldn't a basic bulk food not be the ideal representative for the boring all-business ESTJ; like potatoes or wheat or rice? How can salt ever be boring, actually? You didn't know how to use it on water paint, did you?
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    It's okay You can cut down on salt and add more of the other ingredients - especially cheese - to compensate. It'll be just as good!

    I think salt works pretty well for ESTJs, actually, because it seems boring when it's sitting out on the table in its little shaker, but once you actually taste it - BAM!

    LOL, that was an awesome post. Very nice EJCC. Though, I have to say I like mixing Cayenne Pepper with Cheddar Cheese. Now I wish there was a list like that for ISTJs. I wonder if I should work on that. I just know there are several kinds of ISTJs also.

    You should definitely make a list like that. Should I post on the ISTJ question thread, so you have an excuse to make one?

    This is it EXACTLY. When I was younger, I was told that I have a problem with authority, but I don't necessarily. I have a problem with "authorities" who are less apt or intelligent than I am. I have a problem with being told that I should respect someone by virtue of their rank/position alone.

    I love this freaking thread and it makes me so glad I came back to the forum.
