    Being an ENTJ doesn't mean your strong, there are no more strong ENTJs than strong... say, ISFPs. They are more assertive and aggressive, but that doesn't provide intellectual or physical superiority.

    I don't compare myself to types, I compare myself to people. If that person who I'm competing with happens to be an ENTJ, I tend to withdraw and base my arguments on quality > quantity. I smile a lot and act calmly, which makes them lose composure and as they struggle to strike even harder, they lose their grounds. At this point, their defeat is imminent. They're like those boxers who try to win so hard and punch so fast that they step out of the circle and get disqualified. The same strategy doesn't work on other types though.

    ^Litvyak: Okay, so you basically told you'll win them and you don't even want that.

    Do you see the point why your statements are suspicious and why you're trying to eat the cake and save it, too?

    ^Cloud: You haven't been sensible in almost any expression you've made in the time you've held that sorry pseudonym of yours. After thousands of posts, I'd expect your stuff to improve by now.

    Ok. So, the conculsions are here. People do want to win the ENTJ, some - especially the INTJ, try to frame it in a story device that they "don't want that", a story device that has gotten awfully ugly by now. The INTJ's motives are strongly at suspect. People want to have a jab at the ENTJ, perhaps exerting their "coolness", skills, intellect or whatever - but they do desire to exert their thing unprovoked. Given a little provocation, they do want to exert their coolness, win, whatever, etc.. but it's obvious, very, very obvious. Perhaps the people would like to be less obvious, almost like a ninja or spy of some sorts, even though they are painfully, blatantly obvious. Perhaps the people like to blame the ENTJ for "obviousness" and lack of "tact" as well

    I haven't seen much proof that people bashing ENTJ aren't just in the business of promoting themselves .. the style of the conversation in here is shitty, and will not get more attention from me, unless I want to punish myself in the near future. Be seeing you in some hopefully fruitful threads.

    What sorry failures of a people have come here.

    How about, searching for the first ENTJ that doesn't want to be better than EVERYONE.

    I agree, actually it's not stricktly true....

    only a % of the male ENTJs. (present company isn't part of that %).. ......why are they SO like that... clearly the guy above has dillusions of grandure and beleives everyone has him on a pedistal to look up too, despite several pages of posts say basically WTF!

    Hmmmm people aspire to people who they see as worthy of being looked up too, to me thats kindness (predominantly an F type quality... although far from exclusive), and pushing oneself to be what you can be... which is harder to do for certain types... because of what "all you can be" may be quite huge... otherwise there would be more Einstiens etc

    Ego can be a fragile and tough thing to work through.

    I'm satisfied reminding them that while they are all of trying to run and rule the world and trying to become better and better at everything and never being satisfied, I get to reap the benefits of all their hard work and have fun every day of my life! I will proudly hand the "better" title to an ENTJ any day.
    Ahah, that's a good answer.

    Anyway, looking at life in terms of a struggle for supremacy gets kind of boring after a while, I suppose. It tends to automatically redirect your radar towards people with a similar outlook, so both of you will get caught up in a rat-race for superiority, missing out on everything else.

    Actually, I didn't. I've said that there are no more strong men and women labeled as "ENTJs" than strong people labeled as any other type; and I've given a rough scenario of how I deal with "strong" ENTJs.

    But please think whatever you'd like to.

    You're either a very unimaginative troll or someone with huge mental issues.
    In the former case, I can give you a great online guide to trolling. In the latter case, I suggest you see a specialist.
