ESTJ Personality

The ESTJ Personality is all about creating order. The ESTJ wants to organize the people around them and create a strong hold on the community around them. They believe in tradition and doing the right thing, which is a standard that they hold to other people around them. The ESTJ can be a community organizer that is great at bringing people together. They are very verbal and well organized which allows them to make and talk through plans. They also have an entertaining silly side which allows them to break the ice and keep things light. The ESTJ believes in hard work and the rule of law, which they try to uphold and execute. The ESTJ is very principled and will usually find a way to implement their plans. They may come off a bit harsh and angry at others that do not hold themselves to the same values as the ESTJ. If they perceive someone as lazy or dishonest, they can adopt a very biting and sarcastic tone in their interactions. A more mature ESTJ may realize that not everything thinks or is capable of handling themselves in the same was as the ESTJ, and will find ways to allow others to play to their strengths, which will in turn produce better outcomes over time.

Enneagram Type 9 (9w8 9w1)

The Enneagram Type 9 is all about achieving inner peace. The Enneagram Type Nine is all about figuring out ways to live in harmony with their environment. This can lead them to being very creative and understandings of others. They can be very empathetic and prefer to compromise instead of imposing demands on others. However, this can be problematic if they sacrifice too much of themselves. The Enneagram 9 is at their best when they are being instinctual and know how to work with themselves and their environments. When they become detached from this spiritual and instinctual center, they can become too uptight and lose any momentum they have gained. The 9 is at the top of the Enneagram and therefore shares many of the traits of all the other types. The Nine must learn to assert themselves and their visions if they want to understand themselves better. It is much easier to attach to someone more assertive than them instead of understanding how they can strike out on their own. They would be their strongest if they approached a problem head on, instead of finding a way to tiptoe around it. The 9 is great at understanding others and creating harmony, they just need to learn that it is okay for them to apply themselves and go against the grain sometimes, especially if they feel very called to do so.
