And I turned out to be an ESTJ not knowing what this exactly meant I went to the wikipedia the source of unreliable but useful information. Here is a quote from the Wikipedia Page.
ESTJ’s are practical, realistic, and matter-of-fact, with a natural head for business or mechanics. Though they are not interested in subjects they see no use for, they can apply themselves when necessary. They like to organize and run activities. ESTJ’s make good administrators, especially if they remember to consider others’ feelings and points of view, which they often miss.
Now this totally seems to fit me well. Some further research shows I am naturally attracted to INFP so wondering what that type of person is like did some more research and got this.
INFPs focus deeply on their values, and they devote their lives to pursuing the ideal. They often draw people together around a common purpose and work to find a place for each person within the group. They are creative, and they seek new ideas and possibilities. They quietly push for what is important to them, and they rarely give up. While they have a gentleness about them and a delightful sense of humor, they may be somewhat difficult to get to know and may be overlooked by others. They are at their best making their world more in line with their internal vision of perfection.
So this appears to be the opposite of who I am. Paula Abdul once said that opposites attract. But I think when seeking a partner you need someone with the same core values as you. I couldn’t picture a good conversation between a republican and a libertarian at the table or at your local coffee hut. So what does it say about myself in a relationship the ESTJ relationship/loving document I came across had this to say.
For ESTJs, love means stability and steadfastness. However, when they first fall in love, they are much more likely to be spontaneous and open to the moment. They typically enjoy active pursuits, such as going to parties and sporting events, and taking walks together. ESTJs give and expect security and loyalty in relationships. When commitments are broken, ESTJs become upset because they hold others to the same standards of steadfastness to which they hold themselves. Because they are logical, they expect logically that relationships will have ups and downs. They firmly believe that with a proper foundation, their relationships will survive expected down times. Because they expect this, they may ignore helping their partner or examining their relationship during those down times. In some cases, this inaction can be detrimental to their relationship, and in some cases, not. When scorned, they may not quickly acknowledge their feelings of hurt. They are, however, supersensitive to being reflected, but they may not readily share that hurt with others. They continue to go about their tasks acting as if nothing had happened when, in fact, much has changed.
So when I fall in love I fall out of the unemotional and logical mind and open for anything and perhaps that is why I am good with the INFP’s. I don’t think I will be handing this test over to a potential date prospect. But might save a great deal of time having them have a slight understanding of my personality type and I can understand who they are.
I do notice that I am not really good at catering to peoples emotions. So I tend to come off as a bit of a rude asshole to some. If that is the feeling you have gotten from me I do apologize. 2007 is coming about coming up and first thought you would think it would be a prime number year. But it’s not we won’t see a prime number for a year until 2011. But it’s early I haven’t had enough caffeine yet.
So take the test. What type of Personality are you? As I close this blog post out I thought I would leave everyone with a Witty Saying someone had as a signature.
“If you wear a silly hat, everyone knows who you are.”
