"I don't mean to criticize anyone in any way that I wouldn't criticize myself. I think people should have fun, and have a good time, and enjoy the luck that we have to be lazy and dwell in consumerism. But I think that it's a balance. And our job as actors is empathy."
Natalie Portman


Interviews are useful for familiarizing yourself with the visual and temperamental aspects of different types.  Notice Natalie’s facial expressions, eye movements, posture, mannerisms, speech patterns, and responses to others.  Over time, you will recognize similar patterns in other ESTPs.


Although not as immediately apparent as in interviews, a person’s type shines through in the work they create as well.  Notice the aesthetic, themes, and approach with which Natalie selects her acting projects.  What light can this shed on the mind of ESTJs in general?
