So, you mean monetary success? I guess counting whole life they should be pretty much equal in opportunity. Yes, most ENTJs have periods of time where they "think too much" and get little done, but I think that this is equalled by ESTPs that have periods of time where they "waste time away" doing something not-business-money related. I mean, having a life.

    ESTPs will definitely flaunt it more, but I kind of envy them for that ability. I have some real trouble spending the money I have...I totally prefer to keep it for "future occurencies", some Se here and there is what I need to throw it away for good.

    Take into account that ESTPs also have Fe as "valued function", while ENTJs have Fi, thus given the same level of happiness "felt inside", and ENTJ will appear more serious no matter what. So I would hesitate to deduce happiness from the amount of smiles and similia...
    In that case they are going to win most of the votes wouldn't they.

    Why? I don't know if they envy ENTJs for something - in that case the relationship would be symmetrical. But, perhaps it isn't, we should ask them.

    I think that to themselves, they're both more successful than the other. ESTPs seem to be able to live life the way they want (rawr freedom of action!), and so do ENTJs (rawr leadership!). As long as they can do that, they're successful IMO.

    If you're talking success as in climbing the corporate latter and getting mad money, then I have no idea.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    I think ENTJs are just as likely to be great sellers or marketers, some of them are really talented in this field.

    It depends what you mean by "successful". If you measure success by how much income the types get, then ENTJ is the winner in general. But it all depends on what you are intending to measure success by. Sometimes it is something which can't be measured.

    This is why I would guess ESTPs to be more "successful", because I would think that they find relationships a bit easier.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
