okay, can I get confirmation I am not alone here?
I am the happiest little enfp in the world. At work I make the meetings fun, the buildings noisy, I even make the QA folks laugh.
Until someone F**ks with "THE MISSION".
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?
