In charge: “Having the responsibility of leading or overseering.”
This part is scary. Most people don’t realize it, but there is just one type that rules us all, overpowers every single MBTI type. This type is what keeps every other type under control, and this type is the reason that we follow the rules. This type is the reason we know not to avoid going to work or school every day, because we fear the consequences that could occur from this type. The type that rules the world is ESTJ’s.
Let’s realize how ESTJ’s have come to power. Extroverts become popular amongst their fellow peers, and slowly but surely rise in power. They gain the respect of their fellow community, and gradually climb the ladder to the leader of the company. Extroverts say whatever is in on their mind, and they will be fast thinkers and they will often easily manipulate introverts. The reason extroverts rule the world is because they are the ones who communicate with each other about what laws they think should stay in their country, whilst introverts are more quite with their approaches. This proves because extroverts talk more amongst their community, they are more likely to get to control what laws are kept.
Sensors are by far the type that rules the world the most. They do what every other type does, and they try to stop intuitive people from overtaking them with new creative ideas. What often happens is sensors rise to the top of the hierarchy before intuitive people (mainly ENTJ’s) try to persuade the leaders (ESTJ’s) to change the current laws. This is where it comes back to the ESTJ’s choice. If they are persuaded by the ENTJ’s, they will begin to realize their idea is better and they will change the current society. Sensors are the law enforcers, who intuitive people become frustrated by, because they believe that their values are a lot stronger than sensors values of “keeping things the way they are.”
Thinkers think rationally. They dominate feelers by pure manipulation, and although there is an even number of thinkers and feelers, thinkers do not take feelings into account (as much as feelers) and are therefore the kind of people who boss around the feelers. An example would be at work, the cold-hearted boss picking on the kind staff member who didn’t do anything wrong. This is because the people who rule the world, rule using fear rather than kindness. If they didn’t rule with fear, our world would be out of control due to the fact we wouldn’t care what the leaders have to say.
Now this part is pretty obvious. Judgers think strongly about their future, compared with perceivers, who live in the moment and think spontaneously. Judgers are organized people who cunningly climb to the top. Seeing as judgers are the type of people who try harder to be successful, they will end up being the ones who organize the way society runs. This proves that ESTJ’s are the people who rule the world.
Examples of ESTJ’s would be politicians and bosses. They are the rulers of the court, that teacher at school who everybody was controlled by to do the right thing and they are that person that everybody feared, and therefore listened to. They are also the highest percentage of people (10%) which may be another reason ESTJ’s rule. Yet one tenth of the world rules the other nine tenths. That is truly surprising. Introverts are expected to behave like extroverts, and they are expected to be social every day, doing something with their friends. Being by yourself is seen as a sin rather than a natural part of your personality. Having strong values are also seen as a sin. Following the rules is seen as the right thing to do, even if the rules don’t fit in with your value system. Let’s think about this. The bad characters in stories are usually intuitive, and they have a strong value system. They are seen as bad because they want change. Sensors believe keeping things exactly the same and “under control” are the right things to do, when clearly many of them are just afraid of change. Thinkers dominate feelers, and expressing your feelings too much is also seen as a sin. For example, crying is often seen as a sign of weakness, because ESTJ’s have enforced this on society. Thinking spontaneous and not being organized is also seen as a sin. People who want to have a fun and fullfilling life are often seen as lunatics and maniacs who don’t think about their future, when really it’s part of their personality type! People have to understand that not every person is an ESTJ, and many people live differently to others.
