The ENTJ persona bears the nickname “the executive.” “Executives” often thrive in work environments and are likely to climb the corporate ladder very easily. Some also refer to this type of persona as “the moneymaker” because statistically speaking this character would be likely to have a lucrative and successful career. These individuals are extremely well-suited for leadership roles. Being an extraverted thinker, this kind of individual has no problem discovering what needs to be done and then delegating tasks for others to carry out. To outsiders, ENTJ can seem cold, blunt, and bossy – and in truth, they can be but this usually stems from their certainty about a solution and the steps necessary to make it come to fruition. ENTJs have an aptitude for business that comes as naturally to them as breathing. Whether this individual pursues an office career, fills the role of a salesperson, or makes the move into entrepreneurship, this charismatic and inspiring personality will most likely find a way to be top-notch at what he or she is doing and will find a way to profit from it.
These individuals are extraverts which means that they prefer to live their lives externally by observing and processing that which goes on in reality. ENTJs like to take in their environment and use their razor-sharp problem solving skills to turn problems into solutions. Although very good at coming up with their own solutions and ideas, ENTJ is also genuinely happy to listen to the ideas of others and encourages those around them to be as energetic and passionate as he or she is. This kind of attitude can be very inspirational, especially in a romantic relationship. That being said, this individual also has high expectations and will take it to heart if someone they care about falls short of what the “executive” expects.
ENTJ is a planner and is very good about mapping long-term goals for the future. Their gift of gab and alluring personality would make it easy for a potential partner to find out whether this individual intends to head down the same life path as they. The “executive” is not afraid to speak up if they think something can be done in a more productive way or if they feel that someone isn’t putting forth enough effort as they could. The “executive” can be strongly opinionated, assertive, highly confident, and even outright argumentative. Getting into a debate with this kind of person certainly wouldn’t be a good move for the faint-of-heart, as this individual has a sharp wit and will let “zingers” fly. ENTJ does have a less-dominant intuitive nature that can pick up on the feelings and motives of others, and while they may seem uncaring about the feelings of others, they often harbor strong feelings of affection and tenderness towards those they care about. ENTJ can even be sentimental, although this usually comes out in sporadic bursts rather than a continuous stream of romanticism.
