They are helpers, enablers, and most often, believe in their dreams. They are organized, especially when it comes to relationships. ENFJ’s tend to neglect themselves in order to help others and carry burdens that are too much to bear. They love harmony and are loyal and honest. This describes me perfectly. I love to help people and always put other’s needs before my own. I have to remind myself I am not Super-Woman, although I try to be. I am most definitely an extrovert. I gain great energy from being around others. I love to socialize and build relationships. I tend to believe a friend is a friend for life, although that is not always the case.

I act as the administrator as well, so organizing events and delegating to people is something that I am very used to. Tradition is a guiding force in ESTJ’s lives and allows them to enforce rules that are handed down to them. Tradition is extremely important to me.

I also like to use the same treadmill at the gym and park in the same parking place when I can. I like consistency, however, I also embrace change well. According to the ESTJ description, “...humor is frequently centered around something or someone being off center or behaving abnormally”. This describes my sense of humor well. I laugh at irony most frequently. ESTJ’s are loyal, hard-working, thorough, and dependable. They enjoy developing order and structure. Potential career paths for ESTJ’s are business administrators, financial officers and teachers. I have held positions in all of these fields. I started a new job this summer as office manager and administrator for Fleming Business Valuation and
