myers-briggs personality types

↳ ESTJ (The Supervisor)

ESTJs are conventional, factual, and grounded in reality. For the ESTJ, the proof is in the past: what has worked and what has been done before. They value evidence over conjecture, and trust their personal experience. ESTJs look for rules to follow and standards to meet, and often take a leadership role in helping other people meet expectations as well. They concern themselves with maintaining the social order and keeping others in line.

ESTJs often take on a project manager role at home as well as at work, and excel at setting goals, making decisions, and organizing resources to accomplish a task. The ESTJ wants to achieve efficient productivity and typically believes this is best accomplished when people and systems are well organized.

“The image of Goddess Lakshmi will not appear on any piece of Lisa Blue swimwear for the new season, with a halt put on all production of the new range and pieces shown on the runway from last week removed. The use of images of Goddess Lakshmi was not in any way a measure of calculated risk taking, simply it was a desire to celebrate different cultures and share that through our brand.”

altering the facture of the photographic surface creates an unfamiliar boundary between the
viewer and the image, accosting the viewers perception of what is being presented.
Employing abstraction to the portrait capitalizes on the idea of portraiture not being a true 
representation of the self, but merely a constructed portrayal.

*a seldom used philosophical term to describe an internal and subjective experience which is so familiar to 
us yet we cannot describe.
