Illustrations of Type – ESTJ and ENTJ

Illustrations of Type – ESTJ and ENTJ

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 of people who share the dominant function of Extraverted Thinking (Te). Some have ESTJ personality type preferences and the others have ENTJ preferences. Generally, people who prefer extraverted thinking enjoy quickly and efficiently completing tasks and goals. To accomplish this, they like to be organized, structured, and logical.

Their direct, logical, efficient approach is clearly seen in the bulleted points.

Their quote: “The tough rule the world” seems to describe their preferences well. As type expert 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 and other ENTJ 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.
