ENTJs always love to discover something new. When it comes to relationships, this can be their greatest strength or their greatest weakness. A committed ENTJ will strive to learn something new about their partner every day. A non-committed ENTJ will be more likely to look for a new partner while maintaining their existing relationship. They are aggressive, enthusiastic, and they expect to be charge.
As for relationship compatibility, the best matches for the ENTJ tend to be the INTP or the ISTP.
ENTJs Want To Have Mutual Respect
Most ENTJs are going to stay committed to their partner until the very last second. The one exception to this is if they feel like the other party in their relationship has already given up. The ENTJ is quick to hand out respect when it is earned and they expect the same in return. When this doesn’t happen, they tend to be confrontational – a habit that some personality types may perceive as a threat.
This is why the INTP especially and the ISTP are the most compatible. Where others would see a threat, these two personality types see through the aggression to the feelings that are causing the problem. They feel what the ENTJ is feeling and can help them take accountability for their actions.
The result is often mutually beneficial. Not only does the relationship stay healthy, but there is development and growth that happens over time as well.
ENTJs Perfect Structure and Independence
Most ENTJs like to have a relationship that follows a certain routine or structure. Despite this need, this personality type also enjoys having a certain independence that allows them to “change the rules” when needed so that the best possible outcome can be achieved. They can be emotional, but not usually out of control, and INTPs and ISTPs tend to recognize when support is needed and when it is not.
ENTJs may be imaginative and they may seek their own path, but they often seek a path that has some company on it. They prefer not to be alone despite their love of acting independently and seek out new partners only when they feel like their existing relationships have fled. The ENTJ is self-confident, communicative, and respectful. If they receive the same in return, then a good match is going to happen.
