    Well, if you ENTJs are as invincible as you claim to be, let see you use your Mega Te to conquer the world. Try maximizing your J by 100% also.

    I doubt anything would work, becuase conquering the world has nothing to do with Te.

    Yes, please...we should really define what we mean by 'power'. If we mean power over self, then, I think your bolded is very aptly applicable. The ENTJ has more control over directing self, than ENTP (this is the woe/joy of letting intuition lead versus thinking, which is also coupled with perceiving versus judging).

    Then Power:

    rated on: intelligence, charisma, flexibilty, leadership (people help me think of more criteria), contingency planning
    Why are these chosen as mesurements of power (not that I'm disagreeing)? I'm asking really about then what you define as power, if these are the quantifications you are using. What, then, is power?

    That's one medium of exhibiting power. Agression. Usually, though, this inevitably leads to a backlash effect, where people revolt being 'forced'....hence, it does nothing to make a commentary on a sustainable form of power (regardless of how long we see in history, there is always the backlash)

    How are you concluding that ENTJ has more 'social power to manipulate others'? In terms of functions and their order? Esp. the word, social (Fe?)? I'd think if we go by that definition, it would be ENFJ.

    Semantics aside, I'd reckon the ENTJ has the greater inherent ability to lead. The ENTP is often renowned for his superior intellectual dexterity.

    Leadership v. Creativity
    Leadership is definitely an aspect of power, however, I don't think it encompasses the overarching definition of power, nor, does creativity, nor does a combination of the two.

    Again, consistently being powerful,.. how? How are you defining power? V

    The bolded, yes, I think, this is getting dang close to what one could define as power. But, I don't think it's just mere influence.

    It's also a combination of:

    It's a combination of influence with getting things done.

    Or, to put it more simply: power is the ability (and to what degree) to bring about change.

    Sorry man, I trust some sources more than other, and rather than direct copy/paste (also known as 'lack of thinking' and if done deliberately, plagiarism), I try to word it in my own way.

    Here's one, and it comes with reference/citations....imagine.

    Feminist Perspectives on Power (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

    *section 1
    [there are plenty of other sources, not just in that blurb of feminism - all within the same portal (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philsophy)]. Check with it.

    Forgive me for trusting Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy over Wikipedia. It's probably the elitist in me (not).:rolli:

    But...um, thanks for that commendable effort. *two thumbs up!!*

    Btw, I'll even elaborate on what I mean by change - and broaden it to mean 'an action'/an act.

    Oh yeah, EDIT: FAIL!

    Maybe we aren't as evil as people claim we are. Maybe we are not hell bent on taking over the world. We can be forceful at times, but that doesn't translate into a desire to control everything. We don't claim to have this power and we don't claim to be invincible, so quit making assumptions that are not sound. A healthy ENTJ is a good leader, and I think that is a fairly indisputable characteristic. A well rounded individual (quite possibly an ENTJ) that was capable of using both hard and soft power would have the highest likelihood of world domination, but sure a well rounded individual would have no interest in that kind of power. And Hitler was no ENTJ.

    Well, we can be objective about this.

    What are the advantages of having a mega Te and 100% J? Does that endowed you to have the power to be a god?

    No offence, Bougal, but your type's power is a hype.

    ENTPs are clearly more powerful due to their open-minded and clear-sighted openness to independant analysis, and because the ENTJ is typically so delusional as to how certain things are in their beliefs that their higher judgements are typically clouded. I have yet to meet an ENTJ that has properly restrained this vice.

    There you go again. I am nothing even close to being a god, and I don't claim to posses that power.

    **Are you equating creativity with luck? If so, I don't understand the inference. Also, how is luck, in its truest sense, in any way attributed to a 'type'?
    let me resolve this for you:

    1. the medium types, do infact fall more on their secondary functions, thats why they are more moderate.

    2. I would definitely equate Ni with insight more than I would equate Ne with insight (and before you get pissy, ENTPs have many other talents).

    3. One who has no plan, is more at the whim of luck. ENTPs have such an ability to roll with whatever (creative way of 'living'), that it almost doesnt matter what happens, they will make it look "lucky". This is why being creative can often look like luck. Its like how random mutations can be selected for adaptations that appear very 'planned and adaptive'.

    4. I would bet that EPs probably would rate themselves as being luckier than other types would, yes.
