The ESTJ Enneagram personality type will be examined in this guide. The Myers-Briggs Type personality system categorizes ESTJ as a personality type. And the Enneagram's nine types will produce a variety of features. The links between ESTJ and Enneagram will be our major emphasis. We will also look at the features of each of these personality types.
The MBTI and the Enneagram are two widely used personality assessment tools.
As a result, it is understandable that individuals have sought to link the many categories indicated in these two systems.
I. The overview of ESTJ Enneagram
The ESTJ Enneagram personality type is often Type 8, 3, or 1. All of these personality types have a strong need to be in charge, which ESFPs also value. This is due to type 8,3, and 1 having a prominent extraverted thinking function.
As a result, only a small percentage of ESTJ Enneagram persons are likely to test as other kinds. These pairings, however, are both extraverts who share a drive for social elevation and accomplishment.
One explanation for this might be difficulties in comparing MBTI and Enneagram types.
Please keep in mind that the ESTJ personality type is commonly associated with the enneagram categories listed below:
ESTJ Enneagram Type 1;
ESTJ Enneagram Type 3;
ESTJ Enneagram Type 8.
II. The ESTJ Enneagram with 9 Types
1. ESTJ Enneagram type 1
A sizable proportion of ESTJs picked 1 as their Enneagram type (Type 1 with a 9 wing: 0 percent ; Type 1 with a 2 wing: 100 percent ). Because this type is linked to the ESTJ's auxiliary function of introverted sensing, it stands to reason that many ESTJs would fall into the type 1 Enneagram group.
Enneagram type one ESTJs are likely to be upstanding citizens in their community, internalizing the values they were raised with and striving to uphold them at all costs.
They are more prone to seek positions of influence in their communities, eventually advancing to positions of leadership.
These ESTJs may appear particularly opinionated since they have a strong, unambiguous image of how things should be managed and are fearless of pushing for their ideals.
These individuals are efficient, meticulous, organized, and have high professional standards for themselves and others. They frequently seek to be the "ideal" (spouse, parent, employer, employee, etc.) based on exterior stereotypes rather than developing deep emotional relationships.
This kind of ESTJ is most like their introverted counterpart, the ISTJ, in that they adhere to their internal set of principles and may be more in touch with their inferior introverted feelings than their type 8 or type 3 counterparts.
2. ESTJ Enneagram type 2
Another'most likely' combination is the ESTJ Enneagram type 2, however some of them, like the ESTJ, are significantly more focused on the concerns of the larger community than than individuals.
These people are more prone to establish hospitals, social organizations, aid groups, and movements to address immediate local needs.
Low Ti + 2 causes a lack of self-analysis and concerns that others will not require their influence. If immature or unstable, this might be forceful in attempting to solve others' issues for them.
3. ESTJ Enneagram type 3
A significant percentage of ESTJs were classified as type 3s in the Enneagram system. This coupling works effectively since type 3 is also associated with the ESTJ's strong function of extroverted thinking.
Individuals with the ESTJ Enneagram type 3 are likely to be very ambitious and work-oriented. They will be laser-focused on whatever objectives they have set for themselves, pursuing them gradually and confidently over time.
The type 3 ESTJ, unlike their type 8 counterparts, is unlikely to be excessively obsessed with accumulating power for the sake of having it. They regard their ambitions as a means of fitting into (and excelling at) whatever society standards they internalized as children.
They feel content as long as their family, community members, and loved ones are happy and impressed with the type 3 ESTJ – and as long as the ESTJ has the means to get the resources they seek.
Others may misidentify type 3 ESTJs as ISTJs because they look less aggressive and domineering than type 8 peers. They may also mistype as an ENTJ during assessments because their forward-thinking nature leads them to believe they are a N type – when, in fact, it is the combination of extroverted thinking's logic and introverted sensing's need for security that causes them to consider the long-term consequences of an action.
They may have severe workaholic tendencies, which will further stunt inferior Fi development, leaving them unable to know what they truly want in life rather than simply pursuing monetary success; the Si and 3 will fight over wanting the 'ideal' family image but not being able to maintain it on an emotional (inferior Fi) level. They are frequently very competitive in their profession and aggressive in their pursuit of attention and accolades.
4. ESTJ Enneagram type 4
The ESTJ Enneagram type 4 is plagued by the fear that they are insignificant and have no effect on the world. They combat this anxiety by striving hard to stand out and identify themselves.
Their fundamental ambition is to have a sense of individuality and identity. They strive to be as authentic and unique as possible, frequently depending on creativity and self-expression to do this.
However, in their efforts to stand apart, individuals may accidentally embrace some of the qualities of others, sacrificing some of the originality they seek. Their fixation with being one-of-a-kind might cause them to be jealous and resistant to criticism and feedback.
5. ESTJ Enneagram type 5
People with the ESTJ Enneagram type 5 are confident in their use of resources and in the job, but they are less sociable than other ESTJs and are more cautious when embarking on new ventures that include significant risks.
They use a very analytical and tactical approach, with a mindset of "saving" rather than "spending." They may also throw off overwhelming sensations, and lesser Fi may refuse to deal with them, resulting in interpersonal issues.
Furthermore, they may place too much pressure on their children to be self-sufficient, leaving them upset if they are not.
6. ESTJ Enneagram type 6
The ESTJ Enneagram type 6 person is a risk-averse decision-maker and hesitant leader who plans for all possible bad outcomes and does not proceed unless they are assured of success.
They may distrust and avoid their emotions, fearing that they will be a source of "weakness," resulting in poor inferior Fi development (and insecurity in their relationships, which causes additional anxiety); additionally, they are prone to traditionalist or nationalist thinking in their "safe" zone).
7. ESTJ Enneagram type 7
The ESTJ Enneagram trait will match 7 with tert-Ne comedy and make for a humorous boss, coworker, or fellow student who is more concerned with avoiding their own unpleasant feelings than with being 'correct.'
These people will discover methods to reframe reality such that they constantly feel good about themselves, while ignoring poor Fi development. They are prone to crashing HARD into lesser Fi if something horrible happens, they may take life for granted, and they frequently fantasize about the future, but they are also skilled at making their fantasies come true (Te-dom).
8. ESTJ Enneagram type 8
In the Enneagram system, the majority of ESTJs identified as 8s (Type 8 with a 7 wing: 100 percent ; Type 8 with a 9 wing: 0 percent ). Because the 8 type is strongly associated with the extroverted thinking function, most ESTJs would identify as such.
People with the ESTJ Enneagram type 8 are likely to be both acutely aware and in command of their surroundings at all times. They will feel most at ease in positions of authority, whether at work, in relationships, or in social circumstances. As they are keen to express their authority at all times, they may appear a more noisy and forceful form of the ESTJ personality.
This ESTJ has the same ambitious spirit as the type 3 ESTJ, but their ultimate objective is power rather than recognition. They are afraid of losing control and want to ascend to the top so that they may keep total autonomy.
Because their need for domination causes them to tap their extroverted intuition and come up with unique, unrivaled methods of getting things done, the type 8 ESTJ may mistype or be mistaken for an ENTJ.
This personality like to be one step ahead of the competition, however this is due to their extroverted thinking collaborating with extroverted intuition rather than introverted intuition.
The 8 capitalizes on the ESTJ's inherent need to demonstrate proficiency and strong leadership in the outside world, putting the ESTJ in a strong patriarch/matriarch position over their family unit (Si "roles").
They will be assertively protective of themselves and others "in their tribe," while being intolerant / frustrated by close relatives who are not aggressive enough in being hard working or standing up for themselves (their expectations for their children may be too high, which ties in with lower Fi development / the 8's lack of touch with their sensitive side).
9. ESTJ Enneagram type 9
People with the ESTJ Enneagram type 9 would experience friction between their natural bluntness / statistics brain and their inferior Fi insecurities about family dynamics, which could lead them to be more amiable than other ESTJ Enneagram types, more prone to devotion to their friends and family, and worried for their emotional well-being; would not know how to mirror others effectively, but would strategically plan to avoid potential mistakes.
Because of their overall extroversion, people of this type have greater forward momentum than ISXJs, which drives them to make decisions in a more timely manner. They may be particularly skilled at settling intra-departmental disagreement in ways that benefit everyone.
