How the 3w2 Changes Some of the Natural Tendencies of the ESTP
1. More Charming
Admit it. ESTPs are charming. With their bravado and street smartness, it’s easy to see why we love them. ESTP 3w2s take this to a new level.
Because they are type 3, they have mastered the art of persuasion and subtle deceit. They have also retained all the traits of the ESTP.
This makes them extra charming. They can be irresistible.
2. More Helpful
Type 2 is known for their need to be useful. This also applies to this personality type. ESTP 3w2s find joy in helping others. They are generous and can be inspiring leaders.
Like all type 3s, their motive for helping might be questionable. However, they help nevertheless. That’s all that matters.
3. More Tactful
Tact is not the strong suit of the ESTP. They can be incredibly harsh or blunt. However, things change with the ESTP 3w2s.
This personality type realizes that to get what they want, they must be tactful. However, this only applies to people they want to get close to or respect.
For others they deem irrelevant, they revert to their ESTP ways.
4. Better Work Ethic
The combination of the ESTP and type 3 makes them goal-oriented and hard-working. Their work ethic is on the same level as the ENFJ 3w2 and the ENTJ 3w2.
They go hard for their beliefs and stop at nothing to achieve their goals. This makes them very reliable partners or scary opponents.
Simply put, you’ll rather have them on your team.
5. More Disciplined
ESTPs are notorious for being complacent and reckless. This ESTP is a bit different. Granted, they are still likely to be scattered.
However, because of their need to be successful, they remain disciplined. It’s a sort of organized disorganization.
This allows them to reach their goals.
6. Better Fashion Sense
Type 3 and type 2 are very particular about their self-image and reputation. This extends to their dressing.
So, expect the ESTP 3w2 to have a good fashion sense. They might also be interested in accessories such as shoes, perfumes and watches.
To them, first impression matters.
New Weaknesses of the ESTP 3w2
1. Loss of Identity/Self Awareness
The problem with being less blunt and tactful is the danger of losing your identity. ESTP 3w2s master how to adapt to people’s beliefs and emotions. In the process, they lose touch with themselves and their emotions.
In other words, ESTP 3w2s wear a facade for long periods. When they have to drop it, they forget who they are.
2. The Need for External Validation
As earlier stated, ESTP 3w2s are all about self-image. Thus, it’s not a surprise that they value external validation. This is what gives them the drive to keep pushing.
However, it can lead to serious problems. For example, this personality type might deem an achievement less valuable if no one recognizes their effort.
They can fish out those compliments or become cranky if they are not appreciated. In worst-case scenarios, it can lead to self-doubts.
Regardless, they will bounce back quickly because they are ESTPs.
3. Mild/Moderate People-Pleasers
The need to be appreciated and to excel makes the ESTP 3w2s mild people-pleasers. However, make no mistake. The act of people-pleasing is only done when it benefits them.
This personality type is always playing the long game. If people pleasing can get them there, so be it.
4. Chronic Workaholics
As earlier stated, they are blessed with a super work ethic. While this is a plus, it can also be disastrous. The ESTP 3w2 might become chronic workaholics. They might want to help others be better while also pursuing their goals. It also happens when they are being competitive.
Two things usually suffer the most; their relationship with their loved ones and their body.
ESTP 3w2s need to learn how to strike a balance.
5. Bad Financial Decisions
ESTPs are not the best budgeters or financial planners. With the ESTP 3w2s, things get even worse for two reasons.
First, type 3 wants to appear successful. So, they will spend more on shiny things to achieve this. Secondly, type 2 wants to help others. This is yet another way to appear successful to this type.
So, they can give extravagant gifts to people. These two reasons can completely wreck their budgets.
