ESTJ – Just do it, now!

ESTJ – Just do it, now!

Written by Catherine Rains

Like ENTJ types, ESTJ’s are motivated by Extraverted Thinking, which translates into moving projects quickly to completion.  They often enjoy careers that involve the efficient management of people, details, systems, and organizations.  With Introverted Sensing as their backup support, they are natural historians for what has worked and not worked in the past, ensuring that past mistakes aren’t repeated. With S and T working together, this type is focused on the bottom line and accuracy, and thus chooses careers that involve data, specifics, math, science, and efficient systems.  Careers identified as attractive to this type by those that filled out my survey include: Human Resources (Management, Recruiting, Benefits, Discipline, and Retention), Law Enforcement, Higher Education Faculty, Higher Education Administration, Business Management, Organizational Psychology, Non-Profit Leadership, News Anchor, School Superintendent, Politics, CEO/COO in Healthcare, Customer Service Coaching, Team Process Improvement, Law/Attorney, and FBI Crime Investigator.

Call to those of you who prefer ESTJ – what other careers have you been attracted to?  The more we add to this list the better and feel free to repeat what is already listed above.  We’re looking for the most comprehensive list possible so that others types fully understand what careers feel most natural to those of you who prefer ESTJ.


  1. Your list is spot on. I am currently a Training and Organizational Development Specialist for a Non-Profit Organization. I was an HR Manager for 11 years. I think I would make an excellent FBI agent. I sometimes feel like I am an Organizational Psychologist. I thrive to assist teams improve their process management. I love technology and think I would make a great IT person.

    • Are you sure you’re not an INTJ? Those do not sound like very ESTJ type activities. Too many feelings for HR, psychology is too abstract, and IT requires too much problem solving and not enough doing and acting in the real world.
