The ESTJ MBTI® Personality Type and Learning Styles

In ESTJ Personality Type Blogs, Learning Styles, MBTI by Geeta Aneja

The modern work environment is demanding and ever-changing. In order to be successful—and stay successful—people need to learn constantly. Whether they are staying up-to-date on professional events, or honing their skills on cutting-edge techniques, individuals’ ability to constantly improve is essential. Even more challenging is doing all of this without falling behind on their current workload. Knowing your Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) personality type is key to knowing how you learn, so you can maximize your efficiency. Studying and learning about your MBTI® Type preferences can help you target learning strategies that will work best for you so you can learn what you need to know as quickly and effectively as possible and apply your new knowledge on the job right away.

ESTJ Learning Styles

Learn all about the Myers-Briggs ESTJ Personality Type and their Learning Style tendencies

In this post, let’s take a closer look at the ESTJ personality type (Extraverted-Sensing-Thinking-Judging). ESTJs are generally strong leaders. They think analytically and are excellent at working through problems logically and efficiently. ­They are strongly motivated by results, like reaching milestones or completing tasks. As such, if you are an ESTJ, consider learning in a structured environment where you can receive a grade or finish a series of assignments or projects. These periodic checkpoints will motivate you to learn even more.

If you find yourself in a classroom environment, use your analytical and completion tendencies as strengths. For example, ask your instructor for a syllabus or a list of objectives. Make sure you understand why you are in the classroom to begin with. Then, you can start mastering the target skills for reaching those objectives. You may notice yourself feeling impatient or bored with lecture-style teaching or with activities that are focused on building relationships rather than mastering content. It may help to think about possible applications for the information the lecturer is discussing. You could also make a list of questions that you would like to ask the lecturer after the session.

If you are teaching ESTJs, encourage them to ask questions to keep them engaged. They also thrive in competitive environments, so mild competition such as debate can promote their learning. You may also consider using project-based or task-based instruction, to give these hands-on learners the opportunity to apply content as soon as possible. That said, traditional “group work,” where multiple people work together to accomplish a shared objective does not come naturally to them. ESTJs have very high standards and are often skeptical of others’ ability to meet those standards. Because you will likely have a variety of personality types and learning styles in your classroom, it may take some experimentation to find a balance that works for everyone.

Whether you are an ESTJ yourself or are teaching them, keep in mind that direct, specific, and timely feedback matters. ESTJs prefer to know what they’re doing incorrectly and what exactly they need to do to improve.

When busy professionals invest time, energy, and money in learning, they deserve to maximize their return. Using The MBTI® can help you do just this.
