People of the
"Extraverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging" personality
are sometimes called "The Executive". ENTJs are natural born leaders. They place a lot of priority on their careers and they can easily and naturally fit into a corporate group. They are sensitive and observant about potential problems in their environment. They can see things from the big picture and thus are very often successful in solving problems, particularly if the problems involve a corporate group. They do not allow errors, and they don't like mistakes repeated, and have no patience with inefficiency. They will become harsh when this situation appears, because they do not understand other's feelings, and they do not think they should consider other's feelings when making judgements. ENTJs also have little patience with people who do not see things the way an ENTJ does. They should try to accept other's opinions and understand others. If they fail to do this, they will be forceful, intimidating and overbearing. The ENTJ has a tremendous amount of personal power and presence which will work for them as a force towards achieving their goals. However, this personal power is also an agent of alienation and self-aggrandizement, which the ENTJ would do well to avoid. ENTJs are very powerful, allowing them to achieve their goals. However, this power can also lead to the isolation of an ENTJ from others, and can also make them self-important.
ENTJs are very forceful and can make decisions quickly. They canvery quickly verbalize their opinions and tell them to the whole world. The ENTJ who has not developed their Intuition will make hasty decisions, because they will not understand all the possible solutions and issues. If they did not develop their thinking side properly, they may not apply logic properly, and may make bad decisions. Although they do not understand other's feelings, they frequently have very strong sentimental streaks. Often these sentiments are very powerful to the ENTJ, although they will try to hide it because they think it is a weakness. Since ENTJs are not comfortable in the domain of feelings and morals, they may tend to cling to emotions or form judgments that are wrong or ill-founded. This can be a serious problem.
They love to interact with people, and are mainly energized externally for they are extraverted. They think a lively and challenging conversation is satisfactory and enjoyable. ENTJs respect people who stand up to them, and argue with them with a different point of view. But there are not many people who will do so, because ENTJs are very forceful, and have excellent verbal communication skills. Even the most confident individuals may experience moments of self-doubt when debating a point with an ENTJ.
ENTJs want their home to be beautiful, well-furnished, and efficiently run. The ENTJ is likely best paired with someone who has a strong self-image, who is also a Thinking type. Because the ENTJ is primarily focused on their careers, some ENTJs have a problem with being constantly absent from home, physically or mentally.
They are assertive, innovative, long-range thinkers with an excellent ability to translate theories and possibilities into solid plans of action.
