Sue Sylvester from Glee: Classic ESTJ MBTI Type

If you say the name Sue Sylvester to a Glee fan, images of a nightmare personality may come to mind.  Interestingly, I found a site where people were debating what her MBTI type would be.  The vast majority of them listed her as an ESTJ.  Considering the negative persona she represents on the show, this was interesting to me. 

MyersBriggs.org lists an ESTJ as, “Practical, realistic, matter-of-fact. Decisive, quickly move to implement decisions. Organize projects and people to get things done, focus on getting results in the most efficient way possible. Take care of routine details. Have a clear set of logical standards, systematically follow them and want others to also. Forceful in implementing their plans.” 

Yep .  .  . that does sound like Sue .  .  . Kind of a rude awakening for me though as I am also an ESTJ.  Does that mean all ESTJ’s are rude, heartless Grinches?  No, there are the good and the bad personality extremes to all 16 Myers-Briggs types.
