ESTP – The Entrepreneur Personality | MBTI

October 11, 2019


In this lecture, you are going to learn about
the ESTP personality type, a smart, energetic and very perceptive people, who truly enjoy living on the edge,
aka “Entrepreneur”. “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all” said Helen Keller who isone of the representative figures of the ESTP personality type. Laughing and entertaining
with a blunt and earthy humor, the ESTP individuals love to be the center of attention. If an audience member is asked to come on stage,
they volunteer or volunteer a shy friend. They leap before they look, fixing their mistakes as they go, rather than sitting idle,
preparing contingencies and escape clauses. They are the most likely personality type
to find it easy to let go of past mistakes. Forming only 4 percent of the population, they are the rarest type among all the sensing types and not many even when compared to the whole. As representative figures of the ESTP type, there are Gabrielle Solis, one of the main protagonists of Desperate Housewives, and Donald Trump,
the 45th president of the United States. The ESTP personality individuals are perceptive because they easily notice when things change. Small shifts in habits
and appearances stick out to them, and they use these observations
to help create connections with others. And they are direct because they communicate clearly, with direct and factual questions and answers. But they need to know, sometimes it’s better to pretend
to be not aware of others’ secret, but usually, they ask people directly whenever they want, so they need to learn to be careful with sensitive people. They live in the moment and dive into the action. They are people living like forever young. They enjoy drama, passion, and pleasure, not for emotional thrills, but because it’s so stimulating to their logical minds. They are forced to make critical decisions
based on factual, immediate reality in a process of rapid-fire rational stimulus response. They are full of life and energy. There is no greater joy for them
than pushing boundaries and discovering and using new things and ideas. All these qualities pull together to
make a natural group leader in Entrepreneurs. This isn’t something that they actively seek people with this personality type just have a knack for making excellent
use of social interactions and networking opportunities. But feelings and emotions
come second to facts and “reality” for them. Emotionally charged situations are
awkward, uncomfortable affairs, and their blunt honesty doesn’t help here. These personalities often have a lot of trouble acknowledging and expressing
their own feelings as well. They are also impatient in that slowing down because someone else “doesn’t get it” or having to stay focused on a single detail
for too long is extremely challenging. This impatience can lead them
to push into uncharted territory without thinking of the long-term consequences. They sometimes intentionally
combat boredom with extra risk. They see an opportunity
to fix a problem, to advance, to have fun and seize the moment, often ignoring rules
and social expectations in the process. This may get things done, but it can create
unexpected social fallout. Living in the moment can cause them
to miss the forest for the trees. People with this personality type love to
solve problems here and now, perhaps too much. All parts of a project can be perfect, but the project will still fail if those parts do not fit together. As parents, they are what many children would
consider the perfect parent. Fun-loving and playful, flexible and understanding, people with this personality type genuinely enjoy spending time with their children and know how to make sure everyone
is having a good time. They have a natural curiosity and spontaneity that is perfectly matched to the wonder and insatiable desire to learn
that young children have. But emotional bonding is their lifetime challenge. If their children happen to be more sensitive, this can be a source of tension
between them and their children. So they need to learn how to
console their children emotionally when they particularly need it from them.
