Description of ESTPs

ESTP's are the “Promoters” of the 16 types. Naturally outgoing they excel at communicating and persuading others.

Their enthusiasm and aura of excitement is picked up by others who find ESTP's very exciting to be around.

ESTP's like people and crowds, but they won't go too deep.

Because they are logical and objective, they may appear somewhat cold to others.

Focused in the here and now, they are enthusiastic, straightforward and action oriented.

ESTP's thrive on crisis. Give them a new, urgent problem to handle and they will jump right in.

You won't see ESTP's focusing on theory or the future.

You won't see them locked away by themselves behind a closed door, focusing on a single task.

They crave people, variety and excitement. Give them an audience and you will see them at their best.

ESTPs prefer careers where:
  • Management provides specific and realistic directions
  • There are several opportunities to demonstrate competence
  • The culture appreciates fair but tough decision making
  • The work offers the opportunity to rapidly change direction and to respond to problems as they arise
  • The work is fun and allows for some spontaneity
  • The work allows you the opportunity to work with and meet a wide variety of people, rather than working alone most of the time
  • The work moves at a rapid, exciting pace
  • The environment and culture gives you opportunities to think through your ideas by talking about them
  • The job is action oriented and provides for a wide variety of activities rather than being highly focused on a few tasks
  • The work is realistic, down to earth, and practical, rather than abstract and theoretical
  • The work allows you to utilize your strong memory to recall details, facts, and people
  • The work is focused on the Now not the Future, on what is rather than what could be
  • The work allows you to utilize your natural ability to analyze and make objective, logical decisions
  • The environment allows for freedom and flexibility and is loosely structured without too many rules
