Full explanation of ENTJ at: Myers Briggs Personality Types
They focus on the most efficient and organised means of performing a task. This quality, along with their goal orientation, often makes ENTJs superior leaders, both realistic and visionary in implementing a long-term plan.
They tend to be fiercely independent in their decision-making, having a strong will that insulates them against external influence.
Generally highly competent, they analyse and structure the world around them in a logical and rational way. Due to this straightforward way of thinking, they tend to have the greatest difficulty of all the types in applying subjective considerations and emotional values into the decision-making process.
They often excel in business and other areas that require systems analysis, original thinking, and an economically savvy mind. They are dynamic and pragmatic problem solvers.
They tend to have a high degree of confidence in their own abilities, making them assertive and outspoken.
In their dealings with others, they are generally outgoing, charismatic, fair-minded, and unaffected by conflict or criticism. However, these qualities can make them appear arrogant, insensitive, and confrontational.
They can overwhelm others with their energy, intelligence, and desire to order the world according to their own vision. As a result, they may seem intimidating, hasty, and controlling.
ENTJs tend to cultivate their personal power. They often end up taking charge of a situation that seems (to their mind, at least) to be out of control, or that can otherwise be improved upon and strengthened. They strive to learn new things, which helps them become resourceful problem-solvers.
However, since they rely on provable facts, they may find subjective issues pointless. They appear to take a tough approach to emotional or personal issues, and so can be viewed as aloof and cold-hearted.
In situations requiring feeling and value judgments, they are well served to seek the advice of a trusted Feeling type.
