    thatgirl, you've made a great and cogent post, once again, describing how these behaviors are necessary and sometimes less pleasant for the one effecting them than for recipients.
    Well said. I would only add that with the ENTJ tendency to be dominant, when they do fall into micro management positions it is probably more extreme than you would see from other types. The consolation is that it only takes the ENTJ one experience with this to gain the knowledge that comes with it. Essentially they would be a lot less likely to repeat the situation and would avoid relationships that displayed the same characteristics.

    So, if you do the math (percentage of ENTJs, one relationship per, and overall amount of relationships) it is highly unlikely that the main population would experience this trend. Though it is possible.

What he did affected me and I was subject to his consequences. Ultimately I watched him desolve as a man in front of me though he complied to my will. I lost respect for him. We had very different goals (I wanted to do shit he was content just being). Eventually I realized it was my pride and not wanting to fail that kept the relationship together and cut him lose in an act of mercy.

    The guy I met after him turned the tables and the same thing happened to me. I didn't care for it much.

    Inevitably I learned that finding people with similar goals and motivation, equal competency levels (even if they are in different areas) would be key. As I wrote before, I now look for people I can work together with. Like my half of the Curies.

    Bottom line, if I am paired with someone less capable, and it somehow affects me, I micro manage like a mother fucker.
    I guess I was wrong about the ESTP thing!

    A lot of people seem to use forums to vent their tertiary functions, apparently.

    This would explain why it's so obnoxious on the occasions that they do it.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Oh wait, no-- ENTP. Yeah, I'll try on ENTP this weekend and see if I like it.
