ENTJ – The Powerful Ones

ENTJ – The Rational Executives

ENTJs are architects, executives, and empiricists. They base themselves on the facts that they can see and touch. They structure and organize their goals to fit with the objective world. They maintain their focus on the important, no matter what happens. They act to learn, improve, and overcome challenge. They see what is going to happen before it does, and act quickly to respond to it. Their minds and their ideas are highly organized and structured. They look at the world from the big-picture.

Who are the ENTJ?

You tend to express your opinions openly and directly, without holding back. And you love to talk freely about your thoughts and to have open, serious discussions with others. You enjoy big or large groups and social settings, where you can express yourself without restraint. You’re intelligent and value efficiency and people who are able to think up smart ways to do things. You’re a practical and objective decision maker.

You know what’s best and you don’t really need to discuss things with others to know what to do. You’re comfortable taking risks and throwing the balls up in the air sometimes, just to see where they land. You have a good grasp of what you want, and how to get there.

As an ENTJ, you tend to be quick to trust and to share with others, freely expressing your ideas and strategies with others. You enjoy share your facts and engaging in logical discussions with others, and while you may struggle with a bit of a temper, you tend to be quick to forgive others. In general, you tend to connect with others unusually quickly. A connection for you is based on an exchange of ideas and a mutual sense of respect. You naturally connect more easily with people over work and shared ambitions.

Often, you live like you were in a racecar. You are always moving forward, often in a fast manner, and it can be difficult for your friends and loved ones to keep track of everything new in your life. You are introspective and highly capable of independent thought. You enjoy thinking up new solutions and new ways to solve problems.

Because of your love for progress and creativity, you tend to frown on traditions and social necessities. You find politness to often be an obstacle and would rather people just state their opinions openly. This is somewhat paradoxical, because you have a tendency to become quite an authority yourself. ENTJs are driven and proactive and slightly erratic about their values.

You often say and do things you regret, but your friends see this as a part of your direct and honest style. As an ENTJ, you tend to be resistant to new ideas and to new suggestions. You’re firm about your beliefs and when you’ve made up your mind, it’s hard to lure you to the other side. Your ideal romantic partner tends to be the INTP. Their love for logic, their ability to reflect deeply on things, and their thoughtfulness appeals to you greatly.
