Your Personality Type

Your Personality Type in the Population
Personality Types in Population Legend

Your personality type is ESTJ. This is based on your four Preferences: Extraversion (E), Sensing (S), Thinking (T) and Judging (J).

Many of today's theories of psychological typology are based on the work of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung, who wrote Psychological Types in 1921. He was the founder of analytical psychology, which studies the motivations underlying human behavior.

Your personality type is a detailed classification of the innate characteristics that make you who you are. Each of the four temperaments can be divided into four types, making a total of 16 distinct personality types. As with Temperament, your type is determined by the strength of your preferences.

No personality type is better than another. Each person has a unique set of equally valuable characteristics. Understanding your type can be useful in many ways, including relationships and school or career.

Your Cognitive Functions

You engage the world through four cognitive functions. Each function is directed outward toward people and surroundings (Extraverted) or inward toward your thoughts (Introverted). Your primary function is Extraverted Thinking and secondary is Introverted Sensing.

Extraverted Thinking (Primary Function)

You use this function most often. While Thinking (T), you make decisions based on logic. The Extraverted Thinking function enables you to organize and categorize items such as thoughts and arguments. It is the ability to see the logical consequences of actions. It follows sequence and organization.

Introverted Sensing (Secondary Function)

Your use of this function is somewhat high. Through Sensing (S), you process data with your five senses. The Introverted Sensing function allows you to remember data in detail and to compare it with current information. It is the ability to link present experiences to past experiences in search for a connection.

Extraverted Intuition (Tertiary Function)

You use this function but to a lesser degree. With Intuition (N), you process new information through impressions, possibilities and meanings. Extraverted Intuition is what allows you to see different paths or ways. When you receive information, you are able to see that there is more than one way to look at things.

Introverted Feeling (Least Function)

You use this function least of the four. When Feeling (F), you make decisions based on feelings, so the Introverted Feeling function allows you to know what you value. It is the ability to see through others and know what they are really like as if you had internal radar. When you identify a person with similar values, there is a desire to connect.

Your Temperament

Your Temperament in the Population Your temperament is SJ since you lean toward the Sensing (S) and Judging (J) preferences. We identify your temperament by the strength of your Preferences. Many psychologists, philosophers and other thinkers have for centuries proposed that there are four temperaments that can describe a person.

Temperament is a more broad classification than Personality Type. Each of the four temperaments is like an umbrella over four related personality types (for a total of 16 personality types).

SJ - The "Protector"

Protectors (SJs) are dependable, altruistic and honest. They are driven by a strict work ethic and place a high premium on helping others and serving the community. Protectors are gifted leaders because of their natural ability to organize, plan and strategize. They thrive in situations where they know what is expected of them since they appreciate rules and structure.

They are protective of the people they love, dutiful and very loyal. They value tradition and morality. Protectors often excel in school and perform with high standards. They do not appreciate when others break rules or challenge their authority. They dislike change and unpredictable situations.
