Took the Myers Briggs test when in undergrad. ENTJ perfectly fits. Always has. And, I've always gotten the "B#t@h" word since I started my career many years ago in management. Several college degrees later, I'm still frequently told I'm blunt and aggressive. To me that is a good trait. But, I have lightened it some by telling people up front that I am.

Got turned down for a job a few years back; the interviewer told me it was because within 6 months I would have her job. For the past several years I've been in strategic cost accounting helping troubled companies get turned around and productive. It's where I do my best work. Although at times under appreciated when I get "a wanna be" who is really just a IST or ISF.

...coming to this party 'late'. I am ENTJ-A female. Fist obtained this score a few years ago. Amused at its accuracy, puzzled by comment like 'thankfully small percentage of pipulation...'
On a personal note, the ENTJ characteristics consistently noted are not new to me at all... I have been critiqued by friends, lovers and even (ongoing) my own mother as being insensitive (I call it logical, or less-common sense), brutal (when I thought I was insightful or honest), dispassionate (when I took time to prepare the most honest or enlightening response)... On the flip side I have worked very hard and enjoyed career success... Not instantly because I found most jobs limiting, slow or filled with inefficient, time consuming, non-productive processes.... But I worked my way up, and eventually started my own business. Yes, stimulating conversations are VERY hard to find... I no longer have that expectation, going out most days armed with a selection of banal banter to amuse myself. Age and experience have lowered my expectations, but I do try to be a better listener than I was in my youth. It is easier to listen, than it was to initiate great conversations and watch eyes glaze over as they struggled to relate, -or listen to eager responses that clearly misunderstood my point or story... Or (the worst) they lean in, so intent, and say 'Wow, you really know a lot...". There are some really great aspects about ENTJ personality types! We don't just think we are right, we 'know' - a combination of observation, education, intuition and - ideally - experience positions us to be confident and excited to share, for the purpose of improving 'whatever' we have set out to improve. Others not on board? That's okay, they will be later when they 'see' (since we have not succeeded with clear description, we will niw show what we mean)... This is usually well received by employers or clients... Seldom by friends or family. No friends? That's okay, we like our own company and are more than able to challenge and entertain ourselves.
1% of the population, you say? Well, that expains a lot of the conversations I have endured that began with, "Why are you so..." or "Nirmal people would..." or "Why do you always..." or "Why can't you be...". Believe me, I spent years delving into self-improvment and introspective dissection to try to answer those questions. After the pain, the hearache, the hurt... I woke up older and wiser... Took a good look at my critics... and realized I was a talented, emotionally balanced, content, successful, happier, fulfilled person. Those who can't see that in me are missing out!

omg...I am a female ENTJ and I have FEW female friends. I was never really part of a huge group of girls that just like to hang out all the time - i just don't get along as well with them as guys!!! wow!

At last, I finally found the right personality that describes me most! Before I was INTJ and now ENTJ, wow! I changed BIG...

I'm 42 and considering a new career. I have always been headstrong and ambitious, and forward thinking. Since thinking about a career change (currently I have my construction company and had enough of dealing with idiots on a daily basis) I took 5 separate personality tests - 4 out of 5 came back ENTJ, which is great and about right in summing me up. The thing is, coming from a building background I have little idea of what to step into (despite the corporate world and computer softrware industry ) appealing to me. What I'm trying to say is I would like to hear from anyone in a similar position and what they have done/are considering to do???

Thanks

I am ENTJ woman and often find it difficult to connect with other women. (Although I am in a relationship with one currently). I don't think of myself as masculine or 'like a man' due to my personality, I do see myself as different to most women, but to be honest I don't know many men like me either. I think lots of people assume men to be more driven, which generally just means they get away with doing less. (My ENTJ personality doesn't miss these things ;))

For the past year, I have been having an identity crisis - because I changed jobs and don't feel like I really connect with anyone here, which is unusual for me, as I always have at least one person I am very close to at work - usually someone I don't work directly with. Anyway, I now understand why, because I do instantly judge people and decide whether they are 'my kind of person' and I literally can't bear anyone who isn't driven, and women who talk about diets and dating - just aren't for me. I have also realised that I have the tendency to literally ignore anyone I find uninteresting or 'stupid'... I should work on that!

V. interesting to hear from like-minded people, though, and it has taught me to embrace who I am because it is who I am and there are some great strengths that come with my sometimes difficult self.

Wanna know the real entj? Look at the comment. The one who shouting "OMG, so true!" Ordered "its so me!" are likely wannabe. The real one will analyze, making harsh comment or probably leaving without read the comment. So for all the wannabes, go off, be true to yourself, find out who you really are.aand i was being polite

Just want to point out that the list of suggested books -for- the ENTJ should be corrected to "Recommended reading -about- ENTJs." These are skills, habits, and information we as ENTJs are already very familiar with as they speak to and build the foundation of our "personality type"

I need to meet some of these entj women...
But where?

Guest (not verified) says...

Please do keep in mind that personality test have flaws. Though, they do help you get an idea on how you generally act but personality is fluid so therefore there is no way to accurately determine personality.

What I notice about me which distinguishes myself from others:

* I find it very hard to find other women similar to me. I find it hard to provide emotional support ("get over it" is usually what's in my head).

* Maybe it is my confidence or knowledge, but I do find that most men find me very attractive. I'm not sure if this is linked to ENTJ, since I would assume ENTJ men would attract a lot of women also.

* I earn significantly more than anyone I personally know my age (yet still not satisfied, I keep aiming for every larger figures and this intimidates people) 

* I can work and neglect EVERYTHING (No food, no sleep, no social interaction or emotional fulfilment - no problem).

My hobbies and leisure revolves around earning me more money. For example I see no reason to follow sports since I am studying law, it's inefficient use of my time and would give no monetary return for my time. I might join a golf club or a certain religious group or learn a skill to build the career connections needed, not because I have any enjoyment or any belief in it.

I can be arrogant, see myself 'better' than others, label people's priority for 'love' or 'fulfilment' as stupid. I'm working on this but this naturally comes back in my mind ever so often.

I like interacting with people, so I make friends very easily. I am still quietly judging and observing though. When I let you in, you're in my life for life and have my full support in all areas.

I'm known to be a judgemental b___ch by some women. Also arrogant and high maintenance to some men who can't get past date one. Oh also, greedy but I see this as ambition hehe :). People's opinions don't matter to me, so I'm not too fussed.

Additionally, I am known as highly efficient around the workplace, smart and charismatic  to my dates, hardworking and loyal. I take charge during conversations and my opinions are well known.

wow I knew I never really clicked with women my age and the only women whom seemed to get me were my moms age ??‍♀️ I never felt like I fit in because my perspectives were always different on how I would analyze things, people, situations. And this makes me feel less like an outcast lol 1% is why I cannot find like minded. Men and I organically become friends then women. 

Katie-ENTJ (not verified) says...

I am an ENTJ woman, through and through! I too do not get on with "typical" women. I believe that most women are over sensitive and I have a more practical approach to things. I do have friends that are women but they come to me for an honest practical answer, they know that they won't get a "poor you" response from me. I am ambitious and career driven and always find a broken link in any process.

Some of you seem to think being ENTJ makes you unemotional. It doesn't. It simply means you process and prioritize emotions very differently than the majority of people. I am an ENTJ woman and I've taken the test many times over the past 15 years in hopes it wouldn't result in ENTJ because it can get lonely not being understood by others. Ultimately, I've come to embrace precisely who I am and I take a lot of pride in being different. I'm glad I am more on the charismatic end of the scale as it has really helped with cultivating social circles. But I have a very low tolerance and patience for people who can't match me intellectually and professionally and I've struggled to tame the desire to push ahead without them.

If you are a ENTJ or INTJ why even publically praise that you are rare?
In doing this you must be very new to aquiring these new tools.

Congratulations for discovering the tools commonly used for gaining knowledge and power. Secondly, shame on you for thinking being "rare" in terms of being a competent personality type is a thing to be proud of.

Not only is this personality rare in both genders it is more rare in woman. Meaning woman are less likely to even be very knowledge seeking, ambitious, or have leadership qualities. What pitiful thing to be proud of. ENTJ and INTJ naturally do not tolerate incompetence. If everyone was competent, the world would be a much better and happier place.

Learn to dream of a utopia of where everyone is competent.
You can either be a ENTJ who openly teaches others how to take steps to being competent or be an INTJ who stays away from incompetent people and only talks to other competent people like themselves.

Also for the sake of the rest of us who are experienced in using these INTJ and ENTJ tools. Don't complain how the boss "didn't understand you" or how you "can't seem to figure out what career path to take" you just look like a mess to the rest of us in the INTJ and ENTJ community if you are going to claim to be ENTJ / INTJ. We know what tools you have because we have them. Just because you have finally discovered these tools doesn't mean there's no moral responsibilties to them. You should be able to outsmart people and take on your own problems and goals as you are obviously more capable of taking what you need because of your new found tools. To other personality types you might not look lazy but to your own you will look lazy and immature for whining. Especially if it's publically.

So if you are a new found INTJ / ENTJ woman. Learn to get your life together. The rest of us are watching and grimancing. Not all newbies have this problem but many do.

It's already irritating enough much of the human race is incompetent to us. Then it goes to women being even less well equpit than men. And even once you get to other INTJ's ENTJ's and INFJ's it's only underwhelming to see them be completely and totally inexperienced and still requiring to be taught more.

Yes, I say women because 80% of the time it's always women posting these insecure or non-productive comments. Not men. Men seem to know quite well how to keep these feelings to themselves.

Hope you newbies to INTJ and ENTJ have learned a bit about the crucial need for your own self awareness after reading.
