called Supervisors are not only concrete in speech and cooperative
in reaching their goals, but they are also directive and expressive
in their social address - very directive and very expressive. Supervisors
do not hesitate even for an instant to express their opinion of someone's
performance, nor do they withhold their demand for improvement.
themselves as responsible for seeing to it that those in their charge
do as they should. They feel proud of their responsibility and of
their efforts in making others responsible. Representing from ten
to twelve percent of the general population, eStJs can be counted
on to do their duty no matter how difficult it may be, or what sacrifices
it demands. And they can be tough-minded about others' derelictions
gravitate to the role of supervisor in their relations with others,
and feel especially responsible for making sure that people behave
in keeping with agreed upon procedures and standards of conduct -
or else face the consequences. Like a seasoned, stalwart umpire, they
will set their jaw and point out mistakes and transgressions to anyone
who steps out of line; they feel obligated to do so, and they're sometimes
surprised when the culprit does not seem grateful for their reprimand.
gregarious and civic-minded, and are usually pillars of their community.
They are generous with their time and energy, and very often belong
to a variety of service clubs, lodges, and associations, supporting
them through steady attendance, but also taking a vocal leadership
role. Indeed, membership groups of all kinds attract eStJs like magnets,
perhaps because membership satisfies in some degree their need to
maintain the stability of social institutions.
Like all the SJs,
eStJs worry a good deal about society falling apart, morality decaying,
standards being undermined, traditions being lost, and they do all
they can to preserve and to extend the institutions that embody social
order. Supervisors are so in tune with the established, time-honored
institutions and ways of behaving within those institutions, that
they have a hard time understanding those who might wish to abandon
or radically change them.
Sergeants are perfect examples of eStJs.
