    I'm not particularly aggressive, I rarely remember being called such.

    I think ENFP females can at times be *incorrectly* perceived as being aggressive, (usually by men), because we tend to be highly opinionated, outspoken women.


    My sister is an ESTJ and she is the most aggressive person I know, hands down. :horor:

    When I was younger "fight or flight" were the only two options I knew that I had and, prefering harmonious relationships with others, "flight" was often my choice.

    When I was aggressive I would later not like the feelings of guilt/shame I'd have for violating my values system. But "flight" left me isolated and unhappy.

    So, with time I figured out that I needed a few other options and set about learning about my wants and needs and how to get them met. I picked up some good communication skills along the way and that has helped a lot.

    In extreme stress I feel narrowed to the old two again and, if I have time to think before I act, I can call out the other choices.

    I think I have potential for pretty serious, even criminal, aggression and am glad I have some control over it.

    Since the INTJ is introverted, they will not be as aggressive as an extraverted TJ. But it's still there.

    With the INFP example given, it was reactive as I said, in contrast to the normal pacifism.
    (Is the point of the OP who is EVER aggressive; or normally? The key phrase I was focusing on was "I'm very focused on reaching my goals, in every arena. Many have called my mindset relentless and aggressive.")
    It is whether or not certain types have a strong inclination towards aggressive behavior.

    I don't know, I can be pretty damn aggressive. Confidence + excess energy - adequate outlet = ARRRRRRRR!!!!!

    (note: I don't equate aggressive with overbearing.)

    I can act aggressive, but I do it as a way of counter-attack my social anxiety, lol.
    So I think a P type acting under stress may be very aggressive.

    I can be unusually agressive sometimes, I guess it's an ENTJ-thing - I have to try hard to control my emotions. Human stupidity makes me angry pretty often.

    I don't doubt this. Based on your posts you seem like a pretty well balanced entj.

    i was told by my faja that i am very aggressive, just queitly so.
    i am certainly assertive with those that i respect - and in situations that permit that i do so in order to get the job done.

    Also, as a kid, and somewhat now, i was uberfriendly and engaging.
