ENTJ (Extraverted Intuitive Thinking Judging) are predisposed to direct and control situations with a finesse or a certain type of charm. They have the ideas of a world leader but tend to execute their ideas through the emotions of a cult leader. They do not need a lot of encouragement in order to create a plan and will try to carry them out on their own and block anyone else from trying to help.
These personalities will help people to get salesman jobs or story-telling careers as they describe their plans “larger than life”. They way that they push what they’re selling or their ideas make it difficult for people to say no. Their personalities help them to be decisive and if they see something that needs to be done, they will assign specific people to take on the tasks.
They will be able to remain resolute even in the midst of a conflict and they will generally throw someone in the lead to take on the most difficult part of the task. If they are challenged, they will become extremely argumentative and if they aren’t very verbal with their discomfort, they will use uncomfortable hand gestures or body language to effectively show their emotions. All in all, they’re not a personality that you will want to trifle with.
When ENTJs are under stress they believe that the stressor has nothing to do with themselves and they will be more than ready to blame other people for the problems that they are experiencing. They will see everyone around them as being illogical and needy, which can lead them to believe that other people are forcing their issues onto them. In terms of organizations and systems, they will be seen as hindering and inefficient by a person that has an ENTJ personality.
They are quick to take things into their own hands in hopes to set things right but this makes other people see them as stubborn, controlling, and insensitive. They won’t be able to understand or see the ideals, weaknesses, or feelings of others.
In the event that they feel like they are out of control while under deep stress they will resort to visceral impulses and excessive physical needs such as addictions, profane language, violence, or even sexual addictions. Since they only believe in their own personal logic they will have an ample amount of frustration, disappointment, and an irrational view on how the world around them works.
