Description of ESTJs

ESTJ's are known as the "Supervisors" among the sixteen personality types.

They focus their keen observational abilities on real-time activities and facts, where they will sense the minute something is not working correctly and take immediate action.

They are down to earth and practical. You won't see ESTJ's dreaming about the future. They are busy taking care of business.

They may appear cold and uncaring because they are analytical, objective and logical.

ESTJ's rely on and uphold laws, guidelines, and standard operating procedures.
