Today I am taking a look at two of the 16 personality types in MBTI. I have decided to be a little bit more light-hearted with this and I am using a lot of images from The Myer-Briggs Company site in Europe.
I am starting with the two opposites ESTJ and INFP.
ESTJ stands for Extroversion, Sensing, Thinking and Judging, and some of the characteristics of an ESTJ are;
INFP stands for Introvert, Intuition, Feeling and Perceiving, and some of the characteristics of an INFP are;
Let’s compare the strengths
So in comparison, let’s look at the strengths for both of these personality types.
|extensive network||like helping others|
And areas to develop
|ignore the ideas and feelings of others||Struggle to speak up in a group|
|is not comfortable in intimate settings||people think they don’t care|
|jump into action to quickly||or have nothing to contribute|
What get them stresses and how do they respond
Let’s look at the stressors of an ESTJ
and how they react to those.
Under stress, an ESTJ often gets hypersensitive, emotional, domineering, and is very inflexible.
Now let’s look at the stressors for an INFP
and they react with cynicism, get depressed, sometimes even aggressive, and they are prone to self-doubt.
The ESTJ and INFP in relationships
|take relationship roles seriously||is selective and reserved|
|is conscientious||is somewhat difficult to understand|
|is dependable||is sensitive and introspective|
So let’s have some fun
On the Myer-Briggs web site that I linked above, they had a lot of fun images where these two types are depicted as shoes, sports, flowers, etc. and here is a little picture gallery with those. Enjoy!
My final thoughts
None of these personality types is mine so I can’t say how accurate this is, but at least I thought that the picture gallery was fun.
Next time I will take a look at another opposite pair of personality types according to MBTI.
