ENTJ – The Commander

Life is to be lived. If you have to support yourself, you had bloody well better find some way that is going to be interesting. And you don’t do that by sitting around.
Katherine Hepburn

This is a personality type that leaders often have. They are good at taking control of the situation and making the situation work however awkward it might have been.

Here are the four functions of the ENTJ and how those work. E is for Extrovert and this means that they tend to get their energy from being with other people. N is for iNtuitive which means that they tend to look at the big picture rather than the details. Then there is T for Thinker which means that they would rather use logic to make their decisions than emotions. Lastly, there is J for Judger meaning that they prefer to plan ahead than to just do something spontaneously.

This combination works together to create a person who is often an amazing leader. We now know the individual functions, let’s look at them as a whole.

Well, first I would like to mention that the way that this personality type comes together makes them leaders.

ENTJs like things to be structured, and organized. They like things to be in their places whether it is a book, or a person, they want them in a certain place or certain area of their lives.

ENTJs are efficient. They like to have to do lists. They like to have goals. They like to get things done in the most efficient way.

The ENTJ enjoy being with people. They enjoy talking and will often take the lead in conversations.

They can be a bit blunt and oblivious at times, but over all ENTJs are very friendly and outgoing.

They are hard working, and as I mentioned before they are good at getting things done.

ENTJs are very logical. They take the time to look at their plans and see if they would actually work.

They plan ahead. ENTJs will often have a plan of where they are going and exactly what they need to do to accomplish it. Of course, this is not always true, but ENTJs do plan ahead.

Just like all other personalities, the ENTJ has a dark side.

They can become aggressive and quick tempered forcing their plan for the future on others.

ENTJs can also come to a point where they think that having emotions is weak, and that they should be avoided as much as possible.

There is a reason that this is their dark side, however, most ENTJs are perfectly nice people who would never even dream of forcing their ideas on others or of thinking that having emotions should be avoided.

We have looked at how the ENTJ tends to act, and their dark side, now we should look at some of the people and characters who share this personality type. I find that this is a good way to learn more about the personality type and how each person is different even if they do share the same personality type.

Real Life ENTJs Include:
Madeleine Albright
Napoleon Bonaparte
Harrison Ford
Bill Gates
Richard Nixon
Nancy Pelosi
Margaret Thatcher
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Fictional ENTJs Include:
Irene Adler (Sherlock)
Gale Hawthorne (Hunger Games)
Princess Leia (Starwars)
Theoden, King of Rohan (Lord of the Rings)
Edward Rochester (Jane Eyre)
Voldemort (Harry Potter)

I hope that this has helped you understand ENTJs a bit better. If you are interested in learning more about this personality type I have found that this site has a lot of good information: ENTJ.
