ESTP Personality Types In-Depth
Each letter in the personality type code - E, S, T, and P - describes a preference for a way of thinking or behaving. There are eight styles and you use all of them, but ESTPs prefer:
- Extraversion (interacting with people) more than Introversion (thinking things through)
- Sensing (perceiving tangible facts) more than iNtuition (perceiving new possibilities)
- Thinking (making decisions using objective logic) more than Feeling (making decisions using subjective values)
- Perception (a flexible lifestyle) more than Judgement (an organised lifestyle)
Stereotypes and Individuality
The original author of personality type theory - Carl Gustav Jung - said that everyone is individual and unique. The personality types are not strict classifications, but stereotypes that are akin to landmarks on a map. Just as a few landmarks can help you find many unique locations, so too the personality stereotypes can help you understand your unique personality.
