ESTP - Career

The Activists

Work Habits

ESTPs are action-oriented in the workplace. They are great at making decisions quickly and under pressure. This, coupled with the fact that they aren’t afraid of taking risks, can help them propel their career forward quickly. This tendency can also be detrimental to their career, however. ESTPs must be aware of this tendency and try to reign in this tendency at times.

ESTPs also can become friends with their coworkers easily. They go out of their way to talk to others, and are great at networking. They can talk easily with their superiors, subordinates, clients, and coworkers — they truly are social butterflies.

Career Paths

ESTPs thrive in a fast-paced environment that allows them to use their creativity and insightfulness. Similarly, they usually are not well-suited for jobs that have a lot of routine and repetition. ESTPs are usually well-suited for jobs as sales representatives, entrepreneurs, athletes, marketing representatives, paramedics, police officers, or computer technicians.

The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.
