This really depends. ENTJ's aren't usually as brilliant when it comes to nerdy sciences.
We're the ones with the social power. ENTJ's are regarded as the grand alpha male and leader, whereas ENTP's are more of the specialist kind.
Sure, there are great ENTP leaders, I bet.
Sure, there are social failures and retards that type as ENTJ's.
Powerful, though? I couldn't say. I usually don't end up in fights with ENTP's, since I tend to like and side with the few I know.
Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
in my experience, we ENTPs can excel in anything we feel like. no, thats not just my ego talking. ive proven it to myself more than once...you entp-doubting asswipe
that said, if an ENTP did not feel like taking over the world, they'd be more than happy to work on inventing the time machine while trying to seduce the prettiest woman in the world over some drinks giving the ENTJ a free reign over anything and everything except the drinks and the pretty woman...any input on the time machine will be taken into consideration.
First list the strengths and weaknesses of each type
rated on: intelligence, charisma, flexibilty, leadership (people help me think of more criteria), contingency planning
rate on each
Intelligence: hmm not 100% sure. ENTPs can be really smart but so can ENTJs. More likely ENTP though i reckon if your meaning the traditional academic type intelligence.
Charisma: Ah this is tricky! Probably ENTP as ENTJs can isolate people a bit at times as they have a habit of automatically casting anyone aside who they don't consider useful whereas ENTPs will talk to anyone at first even if they cast them aside later. Also ENTPs are more playful and fun! Then again i would say ENTJ are more adapt at using their charisma to get what they want.
Flexabilty: A lot of people would say ENTP straight away but i think ENTJs can be flexible in their own way since their always looking for new ways to further themselves in society and so are adept as using new circumstances to their own ends. So kind of tied.
Leadership: Depends who with tbh. ENTJs are amazing leaders but with lot of types ENTPs really bring out their strengths. Tied again.
Contigency Planning: ENTJ hands down. The very concept of planning is foreign to an ENTP.
"I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"
"Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"
"Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!
