A quick survey of the avatar choices of prominent ENTJ's I've seen around various boards:
- drill sergeant
- smarmy James Dean with a cig
- western gunfighter
- ugly mean-lookin dude
- lone ranger
I notice a pattern. Do they see themselves as being like these people, or are they playing up the stereotype to make fun of themselves?
maybe they are making fun of the estj
seriously, im drawn to avatars with vampires on em en stuff, but im more into that subtle aggression... i identify with both the aggressor and the peacemaker so thats contradicting.
i dunno, i dont think they thought it through that much, its just 'i have to have an avatar, hmmm this one's right'.
ENTJs are generally seen as agressive types in the online-stereotype community, so the notion is reinforced, agressive people identify as ENTJ even if they're not...creates an echo loop of misinformation that perpetuates the myth.
