Myers-Briggs Personality Typing - ENTJ

ENTJs have a natural tendency to assume control of groups. This may be expressed with the charm and finesse of a world leader or with the insensitivity of a cult leader. The ENTJ requires little encouragement to make a plan. One ENTJ put it this way... "I make these little plans that really don't have any importance to anyone else, and then feel compelled to carry them out." Not all ENTJs may be as driven, nevertheless the bent to plan creatively is common to NJ types.

ENTJs are often "larger than life" in describing their projects or proposals. This ability may be expressed as salesmanship, story-telling facility, or stand-up comedy. In combination with their natural propensity for argumentation, ENTJs often make it very difficult for the customer to decline.

TRADEMARK: -- "I'm really sorry you have to die." (I realize this is an overstatement. However, most Fs, and other gentle souls, usually chuckle knowingly at this description.) ENTJs are decisive, often on behalf of other people. Few of other types can equal their ability to remain resolute in conflict, sending the valiant (and often 'leading the charge') 'into the mouth of hell.' When challenged, the ENTJ may by reflex become argumentative. Alternatively (s)he may fix one with an icy gaze that serves notice: the ENTJ is not one to be trifled with.
