Personality Type ESTP: Doer


Doers (Personality Type ESTP) are often energetic, active problem-solvers. They respond creatively to challenges in their environment. They dislike rules or procedures and actively seek ways to improve procedures and to solve difficult tasks easily. They often enjoy their work. They are flexible and resourceful. They are popular guests at parties and inspire others with their zest for life. They are interested in people, new things, and experiences. They learn more by doing than by reading; they just get started.

Preferences of the ESTP (Doer):

  • Nice, quickly adapting, and action-oriented
  • Seek quick results
  • They live in the 'here and now'
  • Risk-takers with a fast-paced lifestyle
  • Impatient when something is explained to them for too long
  • Good at dealing with people

How do others view ESTPs?

  • Good company
  • Friendly
  • Supportive
  • People who love action
  • People who love to have fun
