In this episode, Joel and Antonia dive deep into the needs and desires of the ENTJ personality type.

In this podcast on the ENTJ personality type you’ll find:

  • It’s tough to get to know the real ENTJ. There are a lot of layers.
  • Napoleon was most likely an ENTJ.
  • ENTJs are rewarded by society because their kind of leadership is honored by this world.
  • Female ENTJs are often not received well because of imposed gender roles.
  • ENTJs get the job done.
  • They have a lot of perceived confidence. It often appears like nothing rattles them.
  • Most of the answers we got on the survey were very short.
  • There’s a sense that they can’t slow down.
  • If they don’t feel confident they are good at ignoring it. Lack of confidence doesn’t serve them.
  • They have a tendency to overvalue templates that work and never question whether they need to be changed.
  • The driver process for ENTJs is Extraverted Thinking that we nicknamed “Effectiveness.”
  • Effectiveness is fast. It doesn’t question. It just keeps moving.
  • What happens when you’re wrong?
  • The co-pilot is introverted learning process called Introverted Intuition that we have nicknamed “Perspectives.”
  • Perspectives encourages ENTJs to not just assume their observations are accurate. It asks, “Is there a better way?”
  • Napoleonic warfare is a good example of Effectiveness doubling down and not adapting to new warfare strategy.
  • The 10-year-old process is Extraverted Sensing we have nicknamed “Sensation.”
  • If an ENTJ doesn’t slow down and focus on the co-pilot Perspectives, they will synthetically keep themselves limited. Avoiding the big game and not fulfilling their potential.
  • When ENTJs have some past wounding there is an instinct to avoid the inner world. They fear the Intuitive Introverted world. They worry about the pain they may find there.
  • The 3-year-old process is Introverted Feeling that we have nicknamed Authenticity.
  • This is about managing emotions. It asks, “What’s going on for me?”
  • There’s a sense of avoidance out of fear of the inner work. The more ENTJs avoid their inner world the less they will reach their full potential.

    Hey, I agree with a lot of what this podcast has covered. I am an ENTJ myself. I’ve listened to this podcast a few times over the past year to examine how much I agree and align over a period of time, as opposed to a spontaneous perspective. I would really appreciate quite a bit more focus on the IF and the ES, as I know they will be able to add more layers and depth but it’s not yet really been broken down and explored

    Hi, so I watch this podcast a long time ago. And I thought then I should have applied to the survey. I have searched the PH website and can not find a place to fill out these kinds of surveys. Is it simply only available to some people? If so can it become available to me? How will I know the next time one of these kinds of surveys comes out again?

    I’m a young female ENTJ and that thing about avoiding going in too deep into my inner world? That’s weirdly accurate. I hate thinking about it too much and usually just ignored it with chores or personal projects, but I’m learning to face my thoughts and allow myself to feel like crap for a little while, move on, and get on with my life. Because dwelling on it will do more harm than good, and ignoring it will just explode in my face somewhere later down the line.

    I am an ENTJ and this episode hit the bullseye. I am totally confident, until I am a crying mess. Effectiveness is everything and I struggle to understand the point of doing something unless it is done in the best way. And I am absolutely a cuddler, it just has to be an authentic cuddle ;) .

    My question is that the episode doesn’t talk very much about Se (other than that underdeveloped ENTJ’s use it a lot) and I would love more information on how to use Ni and Se together. I know how I use them separately and I consider myself very balanced across the full stack, but I was hoping for some examples of how others have used both perceiving functions together successfully.
