    Default ESTJs - Trivial Pursuit

    I'm trying to determine if a friend of mine is an ESTJ or an ENTJ.
    I asked him if he was any good at Trivial Pursuit and he said, "Not really."
    Is it possible he could still be an ESTJ anyway?

    The game or the life exercise that results in disatisfaction and conversion to some weird-cult-religion later in life?

    The game, silly. That's why it was capitalized.

    Re: OP: The answer is "Yes," to be brutally technical.

    Ok. First of all, you're not an ESTJ. You only barely qualify to respond because your father is an ENTJ.

    I want feedback based on that one point. I thought all ESTJs would at least be good at Trivial Pursuit if not unbeatable.

    My problem is my friend is blind so I'm not sure how much of his observations are done because it is forced upon him.

    I've always thought he was ESTJ (because I "tested" he and his wife many years ago).

    Thank you. Why more people can't just say yes or no, I have no idea.


    Would you care to further elaborate on the "technical" part?

    Would get less technical in that event.

    So you're basing your opinion on your own personal experience?

    It's all theory in this case, I'm afraid. But it is quite true that an ESTJ is not necessarily good at Trivial Pursuit.
