ESTJ – Robb Stark

The Supervisor is the one who is happy taking on a leadership role. Naturally, Robb Stark is an ESTJ because when his father died, he was the head of House Stark and immediately fell into that role.

ESTJs are orderly, traditional, and results-oriented. Do you know what “results-oriented” means? It means that someone believes that the outcome means more than the actions that got you there.

So, when Robb was betrothed to Walder Frey’s daughter, and fell in love with and married Talisa anyway. He did it without thinking about his actions or the consequences, which ultimately led to his demise.

ESTP – Jaime Lannister

Someone with an ESTP personality doesn’t want to be bored with the details, he or she just wants to go out and do the damn thing. Like for Jaime Lannister, the fact that he has affairs with his sister is just minor details.

No, but seriously, the Doer is great at negotiating and can be unconventional at times. Jaime has also proven to be good at talking his way out of situations, especially since he’s been down an appendage. He also goes against the grain, like when he helped his brother escape, or cut ties with Cersei once and for all. But he didn’t get the nickname “the King Slayer” for nothing. He’s a fierce worrier who acts first, asks why later.

ESFP – Oberyn Martell

An ESFP is the life of the party who thrives off the energy of other people. Oberyn Martell, though only with us for one season, was quite the entertainer. Yes, he came to King’s Landing to exact revenge on The Mountain and the Lannisters for his sister’s death. And he found that opportunity by fighting on behalf of Tyrion in a trial by combat against the Mountain.

Tell me that wasn’t an entertaining fight! He was so whimsical and grandiose that he got cocky, and ultimately lost his life.

But his short time on Game of Thrones gave us a taste of his lavish lifestyle and quickly became a fan favorite. Of any character on the show, Oberyn is by far the best performer.
