Frank Sinatra is one of the most iconic singers in American history. Over the course of his career he won 11 grammy awards and recorded 65 top 40 hits.
Sinatra was an ESTJ, which is a relatively rare personality type amongst well known singers. ESTJs tend to be no-nonsense, take-charge people with traditional values.
ESTJs’ primary function is Extraverted Thinking, which evaluates information based on it’s ability to produce a verifiable result. This often results them being comfortable in a dominant, leadership role in many, if not most, situations.
“It’s Frank’s world, we’re all just livin’ in it.” – Dean Martin
Sinatra’s auxiliary function was Introverted Sensing, which catalogs information that’s taken in by the 5 senses. As a result of this function (as opposed to an intuitive process), ESTJs will typically be very practical and more interested in what’s real to them than the abstract or hypothetical.
“I’m not one of those complicated, mixed-up cats. I’m not looking for the secret to life… I just go on from day to day, taking what comes.”
As is typical for those of the Guardian temperament, Sinatra held family, tradition and fond memories in the highest regard.
“I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, fine family – and I don’t think I could ask for anything more than that, actually.”
