Illustrations of Type – ESTJ

Illustrations of Type – ESTJ

By Donna Dunning

In my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction – “Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from a group with ESTJ personality type preferences.

People who prefer ESTJ typically use their dominant function, Extraverted Thinking (Te) to quickly and efficiently complete tasks and goals. To accomplish this, they like to be brief and to the point. This is clearly stated in their only words: “I want seven words or less period.”

Interacting with others and a focus on time and facts are also highlighted in their flip-chart.

A steamroller or, in this case bulldozer are images ESTJs sometimes use to illustrate their dominant function, Extraverted Thinking (Te).

As Jean Kummerow says, “Dominant Extraverted Thinking is like a windstorm. When the wind sweeps across the landscape it knocks down what is weak or unworthy and allows what is strong to remain standing.”

You may also enjoy looking at how other ESTJ groups have completed this illustration of type exercise.

If you are interested in seeing how people with different type preferences complete this exercise, check out the Illustrations of Type series.
