When dating a “guardian,” it is essential that you respect this individual’s fondness of traditional integrities. They play by the rules and while they may give in to the odd impulsive action once in a while, they actually carry very high expectations for the individuals close to them. This type of person expects their partner, family members, and friends to uphold the same values as they. If you want to prove yourself as a suitable partner for a “guardian” then you will need to show them that you also respect social and professional etiquette and are a conscientious, law-abiding citizen. Bragging about cheating on an exam or lying to your boss definitely won’t bring you into favor with this type of person.
Your partner has a profound love for organization and tidiness. You can appease this pet peeve by tidying up after yourself when you’re together. If you are expecting your partner to stop by your house, consider cleaning up any messy areas that you think might annoy your “guardian.” If you really want to appeal to them, ask if they wouldn’t mind helping you with an organizing project, such as an office area or hobby room. ESTJs are ranked as top organizers among all Myers-Briggs personalities and they will revel in the chance to show off their amazing ability.
It is also a good idea to brush up on your social skills so that you can hit the scene with your people-loving partner. “Guardians” thrive on being in lively and exciting environments. They love to chat, tell stories, and have a laugh with friends, family, and even strangers. Try not to pass up on too many invitations to accompany your significant other on an outing as to do so might peg you as anti-social (a trait that ESTJ’s aren’t crazy about).
