    This sounds a lot like me in my work environment!! This is especially true with office status!!

    I am definitely always on a mission of some sort.. and I take the ones I set for myself very seriously, even if the mission itself isn't serious at all.

    Nice to see a fellow Texan as well. Welcome and I definitely relate to this, making me question are you a type 8?? I'm an 8w7.

    Just to get a little technical on your asses... Tertiary Te.

    Because it's tertiary, it's mission time, and you'll get bent way out of shape if it doesn't come true.

    (Like an ENTJ but perhaps with a very narrowed focus.)

    I guess.


    Maybe it's not so much "goin' ENTJ" as it is "ENFP getting focused."

    Go Team!

    Business is business, it's not personal.

    Or actually, it is personal and highly prioritized, hence we flip into ENTJs.

    I get this.

    I think we simply don't have the energy to focus on our goal AND other people's feelings and accomodate people like we normally might.

    I can see how the tertiary Te is being flexed and that's "taxing" or comes out in moments of "stress". However, tertiary traits are meant to be developed and different ENFPs have different comfort levels with it. That will effect how aggro/reasonable we are when we flip into that mode and how much stress is a factor.

    I can see the "ENTJ" label when I really argue. I just want to get it done clean and quick and I take no prisoners IRL. I'm all business. I don't curse at people though or tell them how stupid they are, lol. So you're in corporate america huh? Perfect! I was just posting somewhere else that I saw a lot of people ACTING like ENTJs when I worked in corporate but I had no idea what their real types were.

    For me, THE MISSIONis to save my company or even better, save my customers from my company. (I couldn't find any whales to save).

    If you cross my mission I become the most hard ass, dominant, driving force known to man-you know; an ENTJ. I will sit in meetings, stare them down, and grind them into submission accepting no excuses for thier stupid, useless, pandering indiocy. I also proceed to curse. a lot. I feel no fear of those on top becuase if they are so stupid as to not see the big picture and need for the correct solution, then they are also useless to me. I have single handedly delayed the release of products by six months in order to make sure the product is of the quality it needs to be.

    When like this I love to go head to head with true ENTJs because I know I am right. They know my ENTJ state is built upon idealism and they also know I am right, so give me a tough argument but lots of respect. However I scare the crap out of some of the other types as they dont understand what just happened. Its like occasionally lapsing into bezerker mode, then rolling on the ground to get my puppy belly rubbed.

    I keep waiting to get fired but instead they keep promoting me.

    I think most ENFPs have "the mission", but do you become an ENTJ to defend it?
    Hmmm, yes, this does sound familiar. I've got a little obsession with efficiency, and get pretty irritable and demanding when people go about tasks in a less efficient manner at work. It only happens at work though, and not often.

    As far as the stubbornness with regards to the MISSION goes, I see this as far more Fi than Te. ENTJs aren't that hard-headed. If you give them a better argument, they'll come around to your side. However, logical arguments won't sway Fi judgements, because they're irrelevant/ inapplicable. I'd say you become an outspoken INFP... aka an ENFP .

    I've got my own humanitarian issues that I take very dearly to heart, and the "typical" hard-nosed ENTJ-ness in me really only comes out when I feel the need to press those.

    As a small and more directed example, I remember yelling at my ENFJ friend when he talked about how he initiated a fight with someone who was verbally taunting him.. long story, but I could barely control myself as I forcefully accused him of hiding behind social rules and roles and needing a concrete set of core principles.

    Yeah, I don't typically get that passionate.

    Dunno about becoming an ENTJ, but I do become extremely protective, judgemental (which I really, really hate), and make split-second decisions and if I already have a clear idea of what I want, which is usually the case when I'm on a roll like this, other peoples opinions tend to be heard....but only if they don't slow me down. PC comments go out the window and my bluntness is....undeniable. Personally, I always feel embarassed afterwards, when I get this way. However, I usually only do it when protecting others from harm, particularly animals and as embarrassed as I feel, it's the only time I don't feel guilty about trampling over others.

    I *can* get the same when defending some of my core beliefs, but then I do tend to feel guilty afterwards...

    Yes, I'm pretty similar when on mission or trying to reach goal. I'm become ENTJ'ish with very strong Te but I still rather discussing than straight orders for people.

    I've worked for big companies, massive chains etc. Everytimem I've found that I can't console myself with working for them. All I'm doing is going against what I believe in and feel miserable.

    At least working for small businesses, I get the total satisfaction of 'I'm helping somebody AND I can see that I am!'

    Do many other ENFPs find that they HAVE to work somewhere that lines up with their values or else they crumble?

    I do start to resort to J in big places, not at the workers though because my brain goes 'they need to live, they need to eat, they need a roof, they're ok, they're forgiven for being dumb enough to work for an evil overlord'.

    As soon as they hit management though, they've got a war on their hands.
    One of the few times I'll ever go in for straight confrontation.

    Haha....apparently quite a few of my friends think I'm an ENTJ. I find that hilarious, I sometimes "loose" things that are in my hands, I am hardly ever on time to anything(even if I planned it), and often do even know what day of the week it is. I understand the T versus the F because I tend to behave like a stoic unless I am deeply involved with someone.
