Police Patrol Officers:
The following information provides insight into the personality type (ESTJ) that is most common among Police Patrol Officers (this personality type is also prevalent among Financial Analysts, Construction Managers, Industrial Safety and Health Engineers, Lawyers, Loan Officers, Retail Salespersons, Surgeons and Food Services Managers):

Under normal circumstances:
• Committed to maintaining high standards for themselves and others
• Naturally inclined to be critical
• Focused on skills and abilities, hate incompetence
• More concerned with being respected than with being liked
• Enthusiastic problem solvers
• Drawn to organization and clear communication
• Turned off by excessive displays of emotion

Described by others as:
• Confident, competent and decisive, able to get things done
• Goal oriented, focused on the bottom line
• Responsible and reliable
• Sometimes insensitive to others’ feelings

Signs of stress:
• Behaving in an angry, short-tempered, irritable manner; exploding
• Having emotional outbursts
• Being hypersensitive, easily hurt, overly sentimental
• Becoming quiet, withdrawn, uncommunicative
• Feeling insecure, self-doubting, overwhelmed
• Worrying that people dislike them
• Feeling unappreciated, taken for granted

Stressors:
• Not having control of your own time and schedule
• Being with incompetent, irresponsible, indecisive people
• Having to deal with others’ bad decisions
• Being in a disorganized, chaotic environment
• Coping with constantly changing goals and procedures
• Being with highly sensitive, overly emotional people

Tips for managing stress:
• Engage in physical exercise, especially with a group
• Take a break, read a good book, or watch an engrossing movie
• Relax with friends in a new setting, find a change of scenery
• Spend some time alone to calm down, get a grip, rest
• Talk to an uninvolved, trusted person for a reality check
• Treat the situation as a problem to be solved; reframe your efforts; identify a new perspective

Worst ways they can respond to stress:
• Isolate themselves
• Refuse to ask for help
• Take on more work and responsibilities, even if they believe they should
• Take it out on uninvolved people, such as family members
• Keep thinking obsessively; engage in unproductive, circular thinking

How others can be most helpful:
• Fulfill their obligations to them
• Let them know their plans in advance so there will be no surprises
• Listen to them without contradicting them; be supportive and positive
• Try to talk to them, even though they may respond in an uncooperative, unreasonable way
• Help them sort things out, if they ask for such help
• Keep them from acting rashly

How others can make things worse:
• Change things just for the sake of change
• Give them more tasks and responsibilities
• Tell them that they’re overreacting, being irrational
• Question their skills and abilities
• Tell them everything will be okay, be patronizing
• Give them unsolicited advice
• Show either excessive emotion or total indifference
