I have a friend who’s an ESTJ 1w9. Dealing with him was difficult at first simply because he approached things differently. However, we’re best buddies now. Here’s the good news. I have first-hand experience now on what to expect from an ESTJ 1w9.
Here’s even better news. I’m here to tell you all about it.
ESTJ 1w9 is a mixture of intensity and inner harmony. They set high standards and strive to meet them. This personality type knows how to get a job done. That makes them extremely reliable. It also means that it’s difficult for them to fail at anything.
Because of their wing, ESTJ 1w9s also crave harmony and peace. It also means they are not ruthless workaholics.
ESTJs are more likely to be type 8s on the enneagram of personality. However, type 1 is also not far off. This makes sense as type 8 and type 1 seek the same things, but have different approaches to life.
Nevertheless, the presence of their wing changes some typical traits of the ESTJ, as we shall soon see.
ESTJ 1w9s are slightly more likely to be assertive.
The core desire of the ESTJ 1w9 is to be good and to be seen as good. To achieve this, ESTJ 1w9s will strive to do what’s right.
The core fear of the ESTJ 1w9 is to be seen as unethical. This makes them a bit cautious when dealing with new situations (where they have no prior experience).
ESTJ’s world screams reliability, consistency, and dedication. This also applies to type 1. However, their wing is different. Type 9 places their inner peace and harmony first. So, they’ll resist any action that threatens this peace.
This includes working too hard or putting themselves out there. The good thing is that it’s just a wing. So, ESTJ 1w9s work just as hard when needed and can take short breaks to unwind.
It’s a win-win situation.
As mentioned earlier, ESTJ 1w9s will be interested in inner harmony. However, the strength of their wing will depend on just how interested they are.
This means that you’ll have a wide spectrum of ESTJ 1w9s with different takes on people-pleasing and negotiations.
Nevertheless, this trait has some advantages. First, it makes them better mediators and negotiators. It can also make them more approachable.
This follows the last point. ESTJs are not the most popular people. They are often perceived as too intense or too managerial-like.
With ESTJ 1w9, things are different. Their wing’s need to avoid conflict means that they are more tactful and diplomatic.
People find it easier to talk to them compared to your typical ESTJ. The extent to which this applies depends on the strength of their wing.
ESTJ 1w9s want to do the right thing. They also have high expectations and standards. This is further strengthened by their inferior function Fi.
The implication is that this personality type is more passionate and rigid about their values. It also means that they are more principled in their approach to life.
Finances matter to an ESTJ. ESTJ 1w9s take this up a notch. They are deeply worried about their finances. Thus, they enjoy making or planning a budget.
This has some advantages. First, the ESTJ 1w9s generally have better finances. They are also able to reduce impulse buying. It might also mean they develop core values towards handling money.
Nevertheless, the presence of their wing ensures that this need doesn’t become an obsession.
Type 1 and 9 are both in the anger triad. This simply means that both enneagram types access anger as their primary emotion. However, they approach it in different ways. Type 1 internalizes their anger while type 9 avoids anger, letting it build up.
The combination of these two types is a very angry person. ESTJ 1w9s are often angry at themselves and can lash out. They can also erupt when they have built up resentment.
You do not want to get on their bad side.
Type 9 and type 1 are two very different personalities. Thus, it creates a form of internal struggle within themselves. They want to be ruthless in their efficiency and work. However, they also want to be laid back and have a good time.
They set high standards for themselves, but never seem to be satisfied with their performances. It’s the price you pay for being an ESTJ 1w9.
As mentioned earlier, ESTJ 1w9 sets high standards that are sometimes unrealistic. When things don’t work out, they can become irritated and angry. They might also judge themselves harshly.
This also applies to others. ESTJ 1w9s will find themselves judging others who do not share their ideologies or values.
It’s a forever struggle.
The presence of type 9 means that ESTJ 1w9s are going to have streaks of complacency and indecisiveness. This has some implications. There will be a marked difference between this ESTJ and typical ESTJs in terms of energy levels.
While this is true, it will never be as bad as core type 9.
ESTJ 1w9s tend to be blunt in their relationships. While this is true, it is tempered by the presence of their wing. In other words, their bluntness has a limit.
If you are dating an ESTJ 1w9, know that while they might be blunt, conflict is their least preferred option.
So, consider that when dealing with conflicts.
Make sure you’re always by the side encouraging them every step of the way.
ESTJ 1w9s put their values first. These values are important to them and largely dictate how they approach life.
So, you must share these values. If you don’t share them, respect them at least. However, note that most ESTJ 1w9s will struggle to gel with their partners if they have wildly different perspectives on core matters.
First, it’s important to state that every personality type can get along with each other. However, ESTJ 1w9s will enjoy particularly good relationships with introverts/perceivers on the MBTI spectrum.
This means that possible candidates include INTP, ISTP, INFP, and ISFP. They also enjoy good relationships with types 1, 2, 4, 6, and 9.
ESTJs are great managers. They know how to organize people and work efficiently. The issue is often that people tend to see them as too intense or serious.
ESTJ 1w9s are a bit different. While they retain the managerial traits of the ESTJs, they can get along with people thanks to their wing. They are also good with conflict resolution and mediation. This makes them better leaders in my opinion. It also makes them more friendly and approachable.
ESTJ 1w9s will prefer to work in a traditional office setting. They also want a structured job with defined roles in the organization.
Put them in charge of people to get the best out of the ESTJ 1w9.
