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 have these preferences often complete this exercise using short, clear, bulleted points. This demonstrates the use of their dominant function, Extraverted Thinking (Te), a process that a person uses when completing tasks in a practical, efficient, structured, and logical manner.

A person who has an ESTJ combination of preferences tends to be outgoing and will often enjoy solving problems by being prepared, responsible, and organized. This focus is shown in the words this group uses to describe themselves.

As I mentioned, people who have these preferences often use lists, although there are examples of alternative strategies for illustrating this type. Take a look 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.
