ENTJs are natural born leaders. They live in a world of possibilities where they see all sorts challenges to be surmounted, and they want to be the ones responsible for surmounting them. They are quick to grasp complexities and are very forceful, decisive individuals. They are “take charge” people. They generally see things from a long-range perspective, and are usually successful at identifying plans to turn problems around. They’re tireless in their efforts on the job, and very focused on their careers. ENTJs love to interact with people and enjoy nothing more than having a lively, challenging conversation with people who are able to stand up to them, and argue persuasively for their point of view.
Strength : Pragmatism
ENTJs analyze, organize the world, and plan their actions according to well-defined methods. The goal is to get to their destination in the simplest, most direct and efficient way possible. Their ability to detach themselves from their emotional and sentimental part in their decision-making makes them very objective and rational. Keeping a cool head in all situations, they know how to make tough decisions and not let themselves or others drift away. Knowing how societal hierarchies and people operate, they know how to play the game and use it to their advantage.
Comfortable in competitive environments and determined to succeed, they know how to defend themselves but also how to cooperate best with others. Truth be told, besides knowing how to achieve personal success, no one is better suited than them to lead a team or business to success and recognition.
Immature use of this strength can make them rough in debates, or too attached to their reputation, their ego, and their or other’s status.
Developement Point : Valuing
ENTJs are afraid of being immoral in their quest for results and efficiency induced by their pragmatism, especially since they are the most capable of moral abuse. This fear is caused by the potential undesirable effects of immoral behavior: rejection from society or rejection from oneself (deprivation of love).
These users hate having to consider moral issues because for them they are nothing more than a burden in their quest for success. For them, “the end justifies the means,” and you have to be willing to make sacrifices when you want to change the world. So, why bother with such abstract and unnecessary considerations as moral values? They consider that this will never help them achieve their goals, and so they stray as far as possible from them.
The only value judgements they express are often so reduced and simplified that they no longer make any moral sense. On a large basis of bad faith, they simplify any value judgment by “completely good” or “completely null,” in order to bend morality to efficiency. Making these kinds of judgments means not having to deal with the true value of things and thus saving time.
It’s in this weakness that they also hold all their emotions and the things they really care about. They contain them in order, once again, not to lose effectiveness. They think that if they started to really listen to themselves, then they wouldn’t be able to act so firmly and insensitively, and would therefore lose results. Consequently, they do not allow themselves to make mistakes, and impose this demand for quality on others as well.
Their general insensitivity will quickly be challenged if you criticize them on their morals. They will become much more emotional or take on the role of a victim, while assailing you with reasons why it is rational to do so and why you have nothing to say to them. They won’t show it, but you will probably hurt them deep down, right in their inferior function. Behind this impenetrable ego that they display lies the fragility of a weakness and doubts about their moral sense. In other words, they doubt, see, know and regret being seen by themselves and others as bad people.
With enough criticism or significant events in their lives, ENTJs can drastically change their behavior and become almost the opposite of what they have always been. By letting go of their ego, some of them will develop a strong sense of morality and demonstrate their altruism, for example, through commitments to humanitarian work.
ENTJs have a very seductive confidence. Ask harsh questions to get to know their crush deeply and appreciate their honesty. Become physical with their crush, solve their problems, and even give up their work to be with them (for the special ones). Generally try to be clear about their intentions towards their crush.
ENTJs need someone who appreciates their honesty and will not complain in the face of the truth. Above all, they need someone who accepts themself completely and hides nothing, thus proving inner confidence. They also need someone who is capable of having deep conversations with interesting and stimulating visions.
Once in a relationship, ENTJs do their best to bring their partner success in every part of their life. Defend them fiercely against any kind of harm from others. Work for the future of their relationship as much as they do for their career, asking for recognition and dedication in return. Very honest with their partner (to a fault). Structure their relationship for its best. Aim to embody their vision of being the best partner.
