ESTJ, but I am having trouble accepting the E...

Remember, that's a fairly pathetic version of the test (highly unofficial too). There are much better ones that can do a significantly better job.

What do the letters stand for? I get the first one is introvert/extrovert, but can't figure the others!

IIRC:

Introvert / Extrovert
Sensing / iNtuiting
Thinking / Feeling
Judging / Percieving

Note: do not make the assumption that the dictionary definitions for these words apply here. Intro/Extravert is a good example. The MBTI has its own vocabulary.

You can find more information on the web -- a quick search turned up this site with links to a better test:
