ESTJs always stick to their beliefs and values. They trust their own judgement above all others, even when they are wrong. Because of this ESTJs can be inflexible and stubborn. Others may see ESTJs are too forceful in their decisions.
Because ESTJs are so idealistic when it comes to their values, they may be unaccepting or judgmental towards others who do not share those values. They may seek out friends who are like themselves, and/or try fruitlessly to change others.
Because ESTJs are so focused on logic and reason, it may be challenging for them to deal with emotions. They have trouble expressing their emotions, as well as feeling empathy for others.
ESTJs thrive on structure and routine, and may have difficulty in new or unusual situations. They place a great deal of value on tradition, and change can make them very uncomfortable. ESTJs would much rather stick with a tried-and-true method, rather than a new idea that may not work.
