    Default Observational Differences Between the ENTJ and the INTJ

    I'm interested in behavioural differences between the two types. Any takers?

    INTJs plot silently.

    ENTJs do it loudly - and do not hesitate to order their minions around.

    I think that both types are very similar.

    For example it can be hard to tell the difference between ENTJ and INTJ that is showing its social side. Unless we are talking about very E and very I.

    If I were to doubt my type my second choice would be ENTJ.
    I am very introverted person but I also have very well developed NTJ part. Which is constantly spilling over the introversion. That is why I never become total isolationist.
    But instead I created connections with few people so that I get informations and I aways know what is going on. You can't call that exactly a friendship but it is social connection.

    So my NTJ part makes me quite unusual introvert. Since I am not shy or socialy paranoid what is typical for introverts.
    What can be quite intimidating since no one expect that much directness, hostility,criticism and organisation from so introverted person. If I show my "cards" I usually do it with an element of suprise.
    But with ENTJ you more or less know where you are since they are far more open and they get along with people better since they are people oriented they can never become so cold as INTJs since people have problems with that.


    What we share is desire to control, understand and improve systems, good selfesteem and long range big picture thinking.



    I always looked at diferences between the two like:

    ENTJ- Supreme Commander of armed forces
    INTJ- Director of intelligence agency

    This is going to be odd and I hope not hurtful...

    ENTJs look like wounded cyborgs.

    They're strong, purposeful, always on a mission... and every time I meet one I can see them scanning me. And I can feel myself scanning them too. And it's a strange stand-off, like a bridge can't be made.

    No idea what I look like to them.

    ENTJs have a strong drive toward people. My best friend is and INTJ, when we go to the bar he just wants to sit and talk by ourselves. It can be a drag, he sees my need to socialize as a weakness.

    Tee hee, that made me giggle.

    EDIT: As for differences, I guess the big one is that they suck and we don't.

    If it is just talking then Ok. But if you have a need to dance , spend time in karaoke bars, get drunk ...... etc. then I can clearly see why he would see it as disadvantage.


    But something tells me that you are not that much hostile toward those activities. Probably you even enjoy in them from time to time.
