12 Shades of ESTP: MBTI & the Zodiac

12 shades of estp

The ESTP personality is described as an extraverted thrill seeker who thrives on stimulating experiences. They are very aware of their surroundings and highly perceptive of the details and people in their environment. Moreover, they are keen observers of people’s body language and this allows them to read people well and use this knowledge to persuade and influence others. Still, no two ESTPs are completely alike, but could it be that astrology sign has anything to do with it? How might an Aries ESTP compare with a Capricorn ESTP? Here is an interpretation for how the ESTP personality might potentially be modified based on Zodiac sign.

ESTP Aries

In the astrology, the Aries archetype is pretty much indistinguishable from the ESTP. Aries and ESTP both share characteristics such as a sanguine demeanor, a competitive mindset, and impulsiveness. Aries is a masculine sign and so even the females are likely to seem bolder and physically active. The Aries ESTP would be expected to be very ego-driven and possessed with a strong belief in themselves. They are energetic and quick-tempered and tend to express themselves with directness and candor. They bore easily and tend to lose interest with tasks that take too long. They operate in sporadic bursts of energy but will often initiate tasks intended for others to finish. An ESTP Aries is not fond of routine and will be unafraid to go against the grain to do things their own way. People notice and admire their courage and also their assertiveness. They are extraverted individualists who refuse to follow the herd or be subjugated.

ESTP Taurus

The Taurus ESTP is bound to display a strong sense of realism and an emphasis on doing what is practical and achievable. They are calm under pressure and able to respond to emergencies with tactical brilliance. The ESTP Taurus is especially fond of aesthetics and appreciates quality design and presentation. They are highly motivated by money and the acquisition of wealth and resources that afford them the life of pleasure and luxury they desire. The ESTP Taurus can be very crafty when it comes to devising clever money schemes and lucrative business opportunities. They are likely to be excellent business people and entrepreneurs with an eye and mind for products and services that people would love. Furthermore, they are especially observant and good at reading people’s body language which allows them to adjust their approach so as to get the response their looking for.

ESTP Gemini

The ESTP Gemini is likely to be someone who is a bit superficial, voluble and communicates with unapologetic aplomb. They speak their mind and can be very unorthodox and irreverent in their style of expression. They are good at reading people and telling them what they want to hear when it suits them. It is likely that they can be very disconnected from the emotions and feelings of others. Moreover, they are bound to fancy themselves as an intelligent person but will likely rely more on their street smarts, worldly success and achievements rather than academic performance to serve as evidence of that. The Gemini ESTP can be unpredictable, they are prone to flip-flopping on issues and their perspectives can change from one day to the next. They may lambaste someone one today and then sing their praises tomorrow. Sometimes it can seem like there are two separate personalities inhabiting their body. At any rate, the ESTP Gemini is likely to be very persuasive and skilled in the art of negotiation and bartering.
