Intro to ESTJ type

How to spot the ESTJs at work

  • ESTJs are natural-born leaders and have a talent for bringing people together. They believe authority must be earned and that you should lead by example.
  • Tradition, order, dignity, and honesty are what they value most. Many of the US presidents were this personality type. They are excellent organizers, strong-willed, and reliable. On the other hand, they can be judgmental, inflexible, and stubborn.
  • They are loyal, so they like working for one employer as long as possible, preferably in a well-known, prominent organization. They would excel in careers in law, military, medicine, and politics.
  • Executives know what they bring to the table and expect the same in return. They have high standards for themselves, as well as for others. As they’re hard-working and self-motivated, they can do well in every position, but they prefer to be leaders.
  • ESTJs like doing things by the book, but if a new method is proven to be better, they’ll do their best to adapt.
  • As coworkers, they’re friendly, down-to-earth, and enjoy networking.

ESTJ Productivity Tips

  1. You may find it difficult to relax, so make sure you have a good work-life balance. It’s crucial for your mental health, but productivity as well.
  2. Organize your day the night before. In that way, when you wake up you’ll know exactly what you have to do and how to organize your day.
  3. Minimize distractions. Try to cancel the noise around you and put your phone on “do not disturb” to enter the deep work mode.
  4. Make to-do lists. To-do lists are the simplest, yet most effective way to get more productive. They’re useful for one more reason: you can revise them from time to time and make sure you aren’t overworking yourself.
  5. Be open to new ideas and suggestions. As an Executive, you’re focused only on one possible solution, and you’re ignoring all the other alternatives. Consider trying to solve an issue from a different, new perspective.

Our ESTJ remote working tips 

  • Use video in online meetings. Try to be aware of how people react to what you’re saying.
  • Be tactful in your online communications, and try to avoid being too directive. Remember to check emails or messages before you send them—this is particularly important if you’re stressed or in a hurry.
  • Have a dedicated home office or working area. If it becomes too quiet, take a break, go for a walk, or connect with family and friends. Working from home means you’re allowed to be flexible!
  • Remember that your family, friends, and colleagues may sometimes need emotional support. They might not want you to go straight into problem-solving mode.
  • Create a dedicated home office or working area where you can concentrate and focus away.
