View full ENTJ profile Compatibility So much has been written about whether opposites attract or difference is the key but in real life it is all about understanding the differences, accommodating and managing them. This section will help you see where the potential for conflict exists between personality types and help you manage it. The INTJ is the patient visionary clear on how the future should look and will work with quiet, logical determination to make it happen. The INTJ loves an intellectual challenge and is stimulated by the abstract, the complex, the new and the untried; facts and figures bore them. They can seem a little detached from others as they quietly process so much information inside their heads. The ENTJ is the master of change, the big picture conceptualist who loves the new and the challenging who devise the long range plan then relentlessly drive it towards conclusion. Relationships There is no perfect type and in the same way there are no perfect matches. We can all learn to adapt and modify our behaviour if we choose and this section is therefore not designed to suggest particular specific matches but to demonstrate areas of similarity and difference so that a true understanding can happen and thus reduce the risk of misunderstandings.
Premium Profile ENFJ Relationships People who share the ENFJ personality type feel most at home when they are in a relationship, and few types are more eager to establish a loving commitment with their chosen partners. ENFJs take dating and relationships seriously, selecting partners with an eye towards the long haul, rather than the more casual approach that might be expected from some Explorer personality types. On the other hand, people with the ENFJ personality type can sometimes be too preemptive in resolving their conflicts, asking for criticisms and suggestions in ways that convey neediness or insecurity.
ESFJs wear their emotions on their sleeve and are not afraid to express them.
It’s been quite some time since I got interested in typology and ENTJs are direct and commanding communicators, often with a clear idea of what needs to be done and and a take-charge attitude toward organizing people and projects. ENTJs are organized and strategic in their thinking. They communicate their vision and their plan to implement it in a logical, task-oriented way.
ENTJs see flaw in ideas and plans quickly and give critique freely. They enjoy analyzing ideas, but are ultimately oriented toward action; they want to integrate information, formulate a long-term plan, and then move forward. What are ENTJs like as partners? In relationships, the ENTJ is a commanding and challenging partner.
ENTJ s have high expectations for themselves and for their partners, and want a mate who will put in the time and effort necessary to create a successful life together. ENTJs prefer to have their homes and lives structured and organized, and may be domineering in imposing this structure on others. They tend to have a clear idea of how things should be done, and may feel that others should follow. ENTJ s are enthusiastic and analytical problem-solvers, and will approach conflict head-on.
They are complex people, who love doing whatever they can to make others happy. ENFJ males definitely fit into these qualities, but they face their own unique struggles that make them different from the ENFJ female. Here are a few things that anyone close to an ENFJ male should understand about them. Their sense of empathy often makes them sensitive and soulful people. They are often very caring people, with an intense nurturing aspect to their personality.
They enjoy taking care of the needs of others, and will often work very hard to make their loved ones as happy as possible.
ENFPs constantly explore new ideas and improvements, fantasize about future possibilities — in dating, this tendency to look at potential rather than the present can be self-defeating, and their spontaneity makes it harder to stay focused on their end goal of a long-term relationship.
ENTJ relationships can be full of such wonderful potential for a partner who fits the bill. This Myers-Briggs persona is characterized as being extraverted, intuitive, thinking, and judging. These characters are a little scarcer in the world than some other personalities as they make up an estimated three percent of the population. ENTJ individuals are lovers of knowledge and will always be happiest in a relationship that offers challenges, new experiences, and the opportunity to learn.
These individuals are extremely well-suited for leadership roles. Being an extraverted thinker, this kind of individual has no problem discovering what needs to be done and then delegating tasks for others to carry out. To outsiders, ENTJ can seem cold, blunt, and bossy — and in truth, they can be but this usually stems from their certainty about a solution and the steps necessary to make it come to fruition.
ENTJs have an aptitude for business that comes as naturally to them as breathing. Whether this individual pursues an office career, fills the role of a salesperson, or makes the move into entrepreneurship, this charismatic and inspiring personality will most likely find a way to be top-notch at what he or she is doing and will find a way to profit from it.
As in other aspects of their life, they want to be the leader in the relationship, and take on responsibility for making things work. The are creative leaders, and are likely to have relationships which promote constant growth and learning. Since they are constantly scanning the environment for new ideas and things worth learning, the ENTJ may frequently re-define the “rules” of the relationship, although their commitment remains constant.
If it becomes very clear to them that the relationship no longer offers any chance of growth or learning, the ENTJ will leave the situation, and not look back. ENTJs are usually very successful in their careers, and usually very good with money.
There are more, and probably a lot who I haven’t interacted with personally.
Find out what yours are! As an ENTP, you are what is known as a visionary. You are an innovator. You are quick-witted and you know exactly what you want, and how to get it. As an ENTP, you have a tendency of not finishing projects once you start them. You move onto something new, because you get bored or tired of the previous one. Remember that in order to achieve your goals, you must be able to train yourself to get things done, one by one.
As an INTP, you function best when you have the freedom to do whatever it is your heart tells you to. You love the flexibility of working for yourself, so being an entrepreneur is the perfect route for your career goals. As an INTP, you are not easily persuaded. This can be a great quality to have, however, it can cause you to come across as being very close-minded. And they might have some ideas that you will agree with as well.
As an ENTJ, you work best in an environment where you possess all the control. You work best in these types of situations.
But they won’t tell you that INTJs plan their lives further into the future than any other type. Or that INTJs have the least satisfying friendships of all types. Or that INTJs rated “taking classes” as a leisure activity. Or that INTJs tend to get the best grades of all types. I love those warm fuzzy affirmations as much as the next guy, but if we don’t know our true strengths and weaknesses, how can we chart our lives?
I’d kind of like to know if my type was prone to depression, wouldn’t you?
Do they use conflict to solve problems and get things done, or do they dislike and avoid it?
Your secondary mode is internal, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. ENFJs are people-focused individuals. They live in the world of people possibilities. More so than any other type, they have excellent people skills. They understand and care about people, and have a special talent for bringing out the best in others. ENFJ’s main interest in life is giving love, support, and a good time to other people. They are focused on understanding, supporting, and encouraging others.
They make things happen for people, and get their best personal satisfaction from this. Because ENFJ’s people skills are so extraordinary, they have the ability to make people do exactly what they want them to do. They get under people’s skins and get the reactions that they are seeking. ENFJ’s motives are usually unselfish, but ENFJs who have developed less than ideally have been known to use their power over people to manipulate them.
ENFJ’s are so externally focused that it’s especially important for them to spend time alone. This can be difficult for some ENFJs, because they have the tendency to be hard on themselves and turn to dark thoughts when alone.

She has always been terribly uncomfortable with my style, from the age when she tried repeatedly to teach me to tie my shoes, step by step, to no avail, and then one day I sat down, after paying zero attention to her lessons, and just taught myself to tie my shoes in one session.
Type description[ edit ] Extroverted feeling types seek continuity through harmonious relationships and collective values. They excel at picking up on values, simply because shared values are what create harmony. Some will profess the importance of tough-minded logic, justice and scholarly debate because their environments have these shared values. They tend to adopt the collective values of those in their social group. Correlation with Enneatype[ edit ] Cognitive functions[ edit ] A diagram of the cognitive functions of each type.
