    If you, the ENTP, will provide the intellectual dynamics; and he, the ENTJ, will make the decisions; then the answer is "Probably."

    I tend to butt heads pretty consistently with ENTJs. My flakiness drives them batty.

    I think the key to this conflict, though, is that most of the ENTJs have been my superiors. Without the power imbalance, it would be better.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    As I said, I think that could be the greatest problem. As far as bossiness goes, that depends on the single ENTJ - some of us are more bossy than others - I am not bossy at all, but I dislike changing decisions mid-stream, for example.

    I currently work in a law firm and the lead litigator and my boss is an ENTP and his wife, who is also a partner, is an ENTJ. He lets me be in charge of all of the organization aspect and some of the client relational aspects in the business, and we donít have any problems. As long as you make it clear to the ENTJ that you are an equal partner then there shouldnít be any problem with the domineering aspect of their personality. His wife is very good with her clients and is a wonderful advocate, but is very harsh to opposing council and to insurance companies. I think there is enough of an outlet for the ENTJís aggressive nature.

    I've pretty much made it clear to my friend that I make my own decisions. He's tried a couple times in the past to get me to do something that I didn't want to do and I "put him in his place" rather quickly. I think he realizes that I don't mind him making decisions, but when it comes to dictating MY actions, he knows he's hit a wall.

    Also, I see no problem with being harsh to opposing council and insurance companies.

    This will not work without a balance. ENTP and ENTJ are two to radical types of the same gender.

    Maybe it works but only in favour of the law

I have no problem letting him "field marshal" as long as it fits into the main objective. Any thoughts?
    ENTP and ENTJ are both quite bossy in temperament, but because they respect each others intelligence it will work out like a charm - they will lead together.

    im pretty sure my dad was an entj, i would argue tooth and nail with him to resist his power over me.... i think it could be a good experiance for you, you could learn alot and he could be a good partner to keep your arguing lawyer skills. from personal experience entjs are pretty effective.
