    ENTJ Laid back? No.

    Outside of professional interests my ENTJ brother spends a lot of his spare time engaged in 'relaxing' things he enjoys like music, movies etc but he still doesn't appear to be relaxed while doing them, it's weird, he'll be listening to a song that he likes for example, and rather than just letting people listen he'll explain where they're from and who produced them etc, etc, etc. it's like he's still busy when he's perfectly relaxed, his mind never stops wanting to learn and teach. Not normally laid back.

    Flexable? Not so much.

    If he can logically see why something is the way he’s being told then he will continue the conversation, if the conversation is less logical he will get frustrated.

    It depends greatly on the situation. I have certain friends who would describe me as extremely laidback. Others would say the opposite. It truly depends on the situation. In social situations, I think I'm laidback. It makes things easier and more fun for everyone. if there is something to be accomplished, a task of some sort, I am anything but laidback. In terms of being alone with myself, I don't think I'm laidback. I can think myself into a total frenzy most of the time and would also describe myself as high strung.

    Interesting question. It seems the more I care about something (people, task, situation etc.) the less laidback I am. Possibly the wrong approach?

    I am laid back when I am not around people. Those few that does not make me tense tend to become at least my good friends.

    back when i thought i was a different type, that was the one thing that stood out as not fitting: i treat relaxation as work.

    -accomplishing new songs
    -beating new video games
    -writing new bits

    it all gets this "i have to ____" attitude

    I'm a supremely laid back ENTJ, for the most part. Most people would describe me as the most easy-going person they know. I'll take charge and boss people around, but not in a way that's overbearing unless I'm trying to be overbearing.

    I'm all about finding something that everyone can agree on and what makes the best/peaceful situation for any given circumstance. I think it's because in terms of enneagrams I'm an 8w9. I'm pretty much up for anything and can deal with whatever comes.

    I was exchanging compliments with a departing ISFP coworker. The fellow joked that I could occupy his space. "No, I couldn't," I laughed. "You're earthy, smooth, laid back, and I'm not." He disagreed and smiled, describing me as laid back when it's past the morning or there's nothing to be done; hence my vote in this thread.

    I had this HUGE response typed up about how I think I"m a laid back person..

    I'm sitting next to one of my best friends, and I asked her " hey am I a laid-back person", and I did it in a really relaxed and non-intense manner.

    she looks at me, laughs, and says " NO!! DEFINITELY NOT!"

    I'm actually REALLY surprised.

    I assume that's you in your profile picture?

    Edward: Really.
