Careers for ESTJ Personality Types
Whether you're a young adult trying to find your place in the world,
or a not-so-young adult trying to find out if you're moving along the
right path, it's important to understand yourself and the personality traits that
will impact your likeliness to succeed or fail at various careers. It's
equally important to understand what is really important to you. When
armed with an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, and an
awareness of what you truly value, you are in an excellent position to
pick a career that you will find rewarding.
ESTJs have a lot of flexibility in the types of careers that they choose.
They are good at a lot of different things, because they put forth a
tremendous amount of effort towards doing things the right way.
They will be happiest in leadership positions, however, because they
have a natural drive to be in charge. They are best suited for jobs that
require creating order and structure.

that would be especially suitable for an ESTJ. It is meant to be a starting
place, rather than an exhaustive list. There are no guarantees that any
or all of the careers listed here would be appropriate for you, or that your
