Welcome to CS Joseph Responds. I’m your host, Chase, here to answer your questions on any topic, Jungian analytical psychology or four sides dynamics. And today’s question comes also from Quora. What are ideal jobs for an ESTP? So let’s take a look at this question real quick. This is an excellent question. Did anyone answer? Let’s see. Oh, it looks like we have F. Enberg, an au pair/career nanny/ behavioral emphasis A.B.A. Why couldn’t it be behavioral emphasis A.B.C.? I mean, that would make sense, right? Children need to learn ABCs, right? Oh no, my ignorance is showing. Anyway, possible career paths for an ESTP and she is citing her source from personalitypage.com. Facilitator, sales representatives, marketing personnel, police/ detective work/probation officer, paramedic/emergency medical technician, PC technicians or network cablers, computer technical support, entrepreneurs, and athlete. Okay, that’s an interesting list, and I actually do agree with some of those. So thank you, F. Enberg, au pair, for stating these answers for us. That’s moderately useful information. But there’s a lot of other potential ideal jobs for an ESTP that a lot of people don’t even realize. In my opinion, the biggest or best job for an ESTP where they can actually get a really, like a ton of fulfillment out of is bartending actually. Bartending is very… You’re just dominated by STPs in general, especially ESTPs. And the reason why is is because ESTPs are amazing at operations. And if you’re thinking in the terms of a context of a restaurant, if an ESTP is running the bar, a lot of people don’t understand. The bar is basically in control of the restaurant because drinks are the first thing handled, the orders coming in, then the majority of the attention is on the drinks. Drinks needs to be refilled. Drinks need to be provided. It’s a really big deal, and it also produces the most dishes the fastest, and it has the highest demand for dishes, et cetera. This is why, you know, when you have When you own a restaurant for example, you’d want any ESTP running your bar because the ESTP is able to, you know, because they are structure type. They are in charge, they take charge. They’re direct. They initiate with people. Direct is nice because then they don’t leave a lot of interpretation and you want someone who is a leader being direct in that situation when it comes to like managing people, et cetera, especially operationally speaking, right. They also have this huge obsession with wearing aviators for some reason like they all do it. In fact, all templar types like doing it, especially ESTPs and INFJs. If you want to learn more about templar types, check out my other YouTube channel, CS Joseph. And go to season 17 and watch the… It’s a playlist and watch the templar episode. But anyway, the point is is that you want them to be in directing. They initiate with people. They’re very outcome focused which means they do a lot of planning to make sure that there is one outcome for one attempt. Basically a lot of planning for one attempt instead of just doing multiple attempts with zero planning, which would really suck if, you know, they’re running a bar because think of all the drinks that they’d create, you know, doing it incorrectly, et cetera, in that process. Thank you, beauty. Oddly enough, you know, she mixes me a drink, and she’s also an ESTP. So be that as it may, bartending is excellent. And they’re also very creative, they’re in the moment. They’re very tactical. So you want ESTPs in positions, in tactile positions, not really strategic where they have to put in a lot of planning because here’s the bottom line. ESTPs, they don’t have an imagination. They’re not aware of like what could happen. They’re also not aware of the consequences of their actions either. So they’re really only aware of what’s in front of them which means you want them in a super fast pace, high demanding, in the moment environment. This could be like being like someone in Starbucks, you know. Running Starbucks and doing drinks or a bartender in that regard. Or even an assembly line where it’s just super high demand, in the moment, requires a lot of attention to detail, but really quick because they’re very tactical. This is why they have the highest reaction time of all the types. This is why if the building is going to spontaneously explode, the ESTP is going to immediately spring to action and save the SI users like myself because we have this problem called normalcy bias. And then when the building explodes, we’re like, “Oh, the building is on fire. “I wonder why.” And then all of a sudden, you just see this giant arm just come out out of the side and just grab you like “Ah!” And then, you know, you’re being rescued to safety because the normalcy bias of introverted sensing. We’re so stuck in our comfort zone that even if the building spontaneously explodes, we’re not really going to be able to get ourselves to safety. Thank God for STPs. Speaking of which, STPs make excellent firefighters, although typically SJ types are more firefighters than STPs. STP is because they’re extroverted feeling child. They’re very ethical people. They like to give back in some capacity, and sometimes they really get involved in fire and rescue. I’ve noticed them being EMTs. My ESTP cousin, he’s a nurse. Nursing is also a big deal. Nurse practitioner is also pretty well for ESTPs. The problem with ESTPs is that they end up, especially when they’re in the medical situation, they see a lot of the medical rules as arbitrary which just like completely triggers them. So unless they can, unless they’re ISTJ-focused with their unconscious side of their mind, they’re probably just going to be like super hyper triggered by all the arbitrary rules in medical establishment. But a few of them can get through it and get into nursing, and they’re actually amazing at nursing. And especially since they don’t put up with the BS of any of the patients either. And not only that, they have that ability to be super direct and tell the, you know, God’s honest truth at a moment where, you know, it’s probably not ideal. And as STPs constantly telling me, never underestimate the power of stating the obvious, but then they can tell that patient what for and then they might actually change for the better. So also ESTPs are amazing at social media, social media marketing. They’re amazing marketers. They’re also amazing at sales. A really good example, I actually know, I know an ESTP. His name is Shane, fantastic fellow. He’s into real estate. And comparing him to like an ENFP for example, who’s in the real estate, ENFPs when they do their sales pitch, it’s all about “Oh, “you know, “I’m gonna like help you to sell your home “and you know, we’re going to flip homes together “and we’re going to make a lot of money, guys, you know. “And I’ll show you how to maximize your profits. “And I’m like a giant sleazebag.” You know, because it’s all about money whereas an ESTP realtor, what they’re going to do, they’re not even gonna talk about the home. They’re not even gonna talk about the price. They’re not gonna talk about any of that. They’re going to talk to you about the community. They’re gonna talk to you about the quality of the schools and where’s the nearest parks. Do you have a dog? They’re gonna actually talk to you about the reality of living there first and causing the person to fall in love with the community. See, that’s what they’re going to do. So, what’s better, huh? The ESTP way of doing it or the ENFP way of doing it when it comes to home sales, right? Well, I mean, some people are only in it to make a buck, so obviously they just naturally gravitate to the ENFP side. And then for the ESTP side, people that are like actually looking for a place to live, they go to the ESTP. It just all depends. Also, ESTPs are amazing at IT. My ESTP mentor, Mr. Robert Bryant, God bless him. He taught me a lot about IT. He taught me virtualization. He taught me about Veeamware. He taught me about Veeam, fantastic fellow. And they are amazing at information technology as well which is also really fantastic. I’m very thankful for him and his influence on my life because I literally went from being a minimum wage worker to making six figures specifically as a result of his tutelage for which I am very thankful for. But regardless, you know, these are just some general jobs for ESTPs. There’s many, many more out there, but I definitely recommend they look into sales, marketing and sales. And by the way, guys, as an ESTP, if you’re like, “Well, I don’t want to be a sleazy “I don’t want to be like that ENFP guy.” Yeah ’cause that’s your superego, and I totally get that. But here’s the bottom line, you are amazing at marketing and sales as long as you know that what you’re selling is actually going to benefit your customer. Sell from the point of creating a win-win where your customer wins. If your customer is always winning, if you’re going out of your way to care about your customer, then what business do you have being afraid of coming off like some ginormous sleazebag. You know what I mean? So please be open to sales and marketing. You’re naturally amazing at social media or any kind of marketing content anyway, so like why not go for it?
