The ESTP Personality is all about living in the fast lane. The ESTP is a man or woman of action. They thrive on being on the go and experimenting with how far they can push themselves in the environment around them. The ESTP loves being the center of attention and will usually find ways to stand out and entertain others. Being in the middle of the action allows them to make snap decisions and tests their logic in real time. They always find a way to land on their feet, even if it seems like they’re making big mistakes along the way. It’s how they learn. The older the ESTP gets, the wiser they become because they are constantly testing the limits of reality and verifying if what other people are saying is true. By the time they are in their 50s, they have a lifetime of experiences that allow them to properly size up any moment or situation they find themselves in. They also tend to give great advice, even if they are not up for implementing it themselves. They need to make sure they are not over-extending themselves and take the time to slow down to take care of their bodies and their well being. The ESTP can become a bit paranoid and expect the worst when they can’t properly read a situation or find the people around them too unpredictable. However, if they recognize their mind playing tricks on them, they can go back to making better decisions and being adaptable in the moment.
Enneagram Type 1 (1w9 1w2)
The Enneagram Type 1 is all about being an advocate. The Enneagram Type One wants to deal with what is right and what is wrong. When they are at their best, the 1 has high standards that they hold themselves to. This becomes problematic if they find themselves being too much of a perfectionist and nothing ever gets done. They believe in keeping things in order, and they are also advocates for what they believe is right. This can cause them to fight the good fight. When they are stressed, they can become rather moody. However, when they are feeling their best, they are able to let go a bit more and just enjoy the moment. The Enneagram 1 works best when they are striving to achieve their goals and believe everything is moving in the right direction. They ideally would like to be doing everything right so that they are not criticized. The 1 needs to realize that others may not see their way initially, and that change takes time. However, they need to realize that they may still be implementing change by their well spoken words and ideas, it just might take a bit of time for that to sink in.
