The best word to describe me would not be "leader" (it would be Maverick).
In work situations, many people have considered me as such and elected me to such a role.
However, a real leader for me is charismatic enough to build alot of social and political power. His authority cannot be solely based on competence if he wishes to climb the ladder and/or gain support. I'm just not good enough at charming people and acting in a way that will be socially popular as to become the most popular person around. As such, I will only occasionally be the one driving a social group (i.e. talking the most, getting all the attention, being the most liked, deciding what to do and where to go, ...). When reading the MBTI descriptions, I feel more like an extraverted INTJ than an actual ENTJ, alpha male type that imposes his will to everyone around him. I just couldn't care less about telling people what to do or controlling social situations unless it serves some kind of practical purpose.
As such, at home or with friends I'm really not commanding at all. I just offer suggestions for things and am pretty laid back really. Not what you would typically expect from an ENTJ.
I don't like it when ISTJ's get characterized as having little/no imagination. I mean, I find myself daydreaming all the time, even though when I do daydream it's usually in a lot of detail. Also, I think ISTJ's generally have a really witty, dry, and quick sense of humor. To me, at least, that kind of humor means you have to be pretty creative. Maybe I'm only speaking for myself, but I think my S/N divide is something like a 60/40ish split so I'm not entirely deprived of N although most of my tendencies are toward S.
Apparently, I'm supposed to be a hard worker. I've hardly ever worked in my life, always get my dads credit card and spend his money. Spending other peoples money is fun.
Hmm... ya know, I can kinda relate to some of that. Around my mom's house (and now this one), I've been known to be kinda lazy (not doing any housework and whatnot and having a tendency to sit around alot). But, at school (and college) and when I had a job for a very short time, I never took breaks except to eat, or the breaks I was given were used primarily for work. The way I see it, I guess, is, if I'm at work/school, especially since I'm not too social, what else is there to do? I might as well work while I'm there so I can be lazy at home, lol.
By the way, I'm the girl in the picture, lol.... happily married though, so don't even...
