  • Who are ENTJs?

    An ENTJ is a strategic thinker that is intensely goal-oriented, enjoys interacting with people, assertive and motivated. While few leaders are ENTJs, due to the small number of these individuals, most ENTJs find themselves in leadership positions.

    What does ‘ENTJ’ Mean?

    ENTJs (Extraversion, iNtuition, Thinking, Judgment) is an abbreviation used in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) publications to refer to one of the sixteen personality types that MBTI classifies people into.

    The Keirsey Temperament Sorter (a refinement of MBTI) refers to ENTJs by the descriptive stereotype of ‘Fieldmarshals‘.

    What are the typical characteristics of an ENTJ?

    ENTJs tend to be self-driven, motivating, and competitive strategic coordinators. They are often sought out as leaders, and leaders of leaders. Unusually influential and organized, they may sometimes judge others by their own tough standards, failing to take personal needs into account.

    The text block at the top of this page contains descriptive phrases that can collectively paint a convincing portrait of a typical ENTJ.
