So I am an ESTJ…I guess that pretty much figures how & why I operate like this (I’m kinda always like in a flurry of activity yet I’d like to believe that I’m a people person too). 🙂 My blockmate, Benj, actually told me the other day that he thinks I am so corporate…I think he got annoyed at how I tend to delve into the nitty-gritties whenever a project comes along (haha, coz I was making a fuss about how I envisioned the sign-up sheet for Law Christian Fellowship to look like).
Do people sometimes see me as bossy? I don’t know. (You tell me) For one thing, if there’s something which has to be done, but I could sense that a person whom I was thinking of asking for help doesn’t really want to do “the favor”, I respect that & cease bugging him/her about it. Kung ayaw eh di wag, I’m not the type to make pilit naman eh. So, I think I’m far from being a despot (or maybe I actually am bossy, but I just get away with it because of my voice, which kinda sounds like a kid’s…and I always try to be diplomatically correct & I try to make lambing. haha!). In defense of myself (ok, I admit, I’m being defensive here), it’s just that I dislike disorder, especially when there’s a more efficient & effective way of going about with things; and I don’t really have a high regard for laziness – actually, I can’t stand moments of not doing anything at all. I have to do something! (even something as non-sensical as a friendster survey). Nor am I comfortable with happy-go-lucky attitudes…not that I am a prude. It’s just that I think there’s more to life than just having fun. (Just like all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, all play makes Jack a lazy moron).
Anyway, in this site I visited, I’m just happy that “corporate financial attorney” is among the professions that fit the ESTJ…(big, big grin!). At least, I’m not in the wrong path, after all. For other folks out there who think that they may be ESTJs too, check this out:
