At work, the ESTJ will be the organiser, of materials, of people, of deadlines making sure tasks are planned and coordinated and that everyone is clear what is expected and what should happen next. ESTJs are conservative and predictable with great organisational ability, ensuring everyone is clear where they stand. They like a plan and like people to stick to the plan working towards the known. ESTJS need to know exactly where they stand and what is expected of them and then they will work long and hard to get it done. They dislike anything they perceive as woolly and will act on the facts. ESTJs have practical common sense and a good deal of self-control and discipline, they work hard and tackle problems in a systematic fashion moving in a straight line from beginning to end. ESTJs have a practical, factual nature, and enjoy hard work, although they may lack flexibility and be unresponsive to new or unproven ideas, as the ESTJ prefers the known and rely on their experience.
The ESTJ is great at turning concepts and plans into practical working procedures and carrying out agreed plans systematically and efficiently. They are conservative, dutiful and predictable with great organisational ability, practical common sense, self-discipline and enjoy hard work, although they may lack flexibility and be unresponsive to new or unproven ideas as the ESTJ prefers the known.
ESTJs bring reliability and a capacity for application to the team. They succeed because they are efficient and because they have a sense of what is realistic and workable. The ESTJ will bring a strong sense of purpose to the team, will organise tasks and manage people and will excel once the group has agreed what is required as they will plan to make it happen.
