Myers Briggs personality test in this website describes ESTPs as extroverted, sensing, thinking, perceiving. ESTPs have a great tendency of acting on their impulses. Although sometimes they could become aggressive when acting on their impulses. These risk takers hate the dull life and can’t stand “not being in the fast lane.” They enjoying jumping straight into the core of the action and loves being the center of attention. ESTPs are straight-forward people. They look at the details, then quickly decide their move. Their priorities are for the here-now.
According to Myers Briggs, ESTPs are extremely competitive. Wanting to have the highest score on the games they play, excelling in activities on spare time, and leaving little room for other competitors to stand a chance. ESTPs quickly become good at things, making their inner motives to become the best hard to ignore. When they come across someone they can’t seem to compete with, instead of getting jealous, the ESTP learn to admire and respect that person.
Information in this website states the reason ESTPs live for the moment is because they are so focused on their senses. Which are hearing, smelling, feeling, seeing, and tasting. The ESTP gains the abilities to pick up on little cues that are hard to notice by most other people. The ESTP skill to notice these cues supports them with an insightful advantage when interacting with others which is a awesome personality trait.
The studies show that ESTPs’ sensing ability comes with a weakness, the lacking of intuition. They rely more on logic and facts and become impatient with theory. The negative personality trait they obtain from the lack of intuition, is not trusting their own instincts. Sometimes when ESTPs speak they hurt others in an indirect way. It is difficult to fully consider everyone’s feelings when ESTPs rush through experiences. They make their decisions based on their logic. Also they can’t ignore their “get it over with” trait.
Myer Briggs believed that ESTPs view laws and rules as more of a guideline. They often ignore rules when their priorities get the best of them. An ESTP will stand strong with their own belief in integrity because an ESTP holds a lot of value to their own morals. Hardly will these hard-headed soldiers retreat from following their integrity.
ESTPs have heightened taste for quality and style. They can’t help but to notice the better view of life while rushing through the fast lane. It is typical for an ESTP (being risk-taker) to become a gambler. On the bright-side ESTPs are very entertaining when it comes to story time. They capture the crowd when they start telling their stories, sparking the crowd’s interest with their amazing improvising skill. They are brilliant at making things up.
An ESTP tends to have a bit of difficulty when it comes to education. School is just not one of their strong-suits. They can’t endure a daily routine because they find it boring. They make great entrepreneurs. ESTPs also do well in convincing others and are fun to be around when they want to do something. Overall ESTPs are just really amazing people.
