Part of being a great leader is knowing your personality, identifying other people's personalities, and how you interact with each other.
Many leadership courses start off by discussing personality types. There are many personality type tests from MBTI, to DiSC, and totalSDI. According to MBTI, there are 16 distinctive personality types. ESTJ (Extroverted, Sensing, Thinking, Judging) makes up less than 10% of the population. They are confident leaders who make strong, sure decisions. They take command of any situation naturally and gravitate toward positions of authority. Check out these ESTJ personalities (MCPOCG-R George Williamson, Deputy MCPOCG CMC Charles Bushey, and 7th US President Andrew Jackson has been assumed to be an ESTJ). Comment below, if you know your personality type. #personalitytest
