    Off the top of my head I only have one thing:

    -taking charge of a situation when there is clearly a more competent person available for the task at hand.

    Appears to be more concerned with objectives than friends. Thus, making them untrustworthy. I will admit, though, that this is on my limited experience with ENTJs.

    - See a rant thread about them as a list of strengths, not weaknesses.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Apparently doesn't make people rant enough.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    In my experience ENTJs tend to actually come right out and say all of the brash or downright rude things we INTJs think but keep to ourselves. Needless to say, I love that about them.

    (One ENTJ I know can be so rude towards strangers it even takes me aback.)

    overly focused on the 'outside' of things. sees everything in the world as tetris blocks for them to twist and turn until they fit.

    I'm a very impatient person. This is probably my worst personality trait.

    ENTJs and INFPs seem to naturally rub each other the wrong way, not sure why. Or maybe it's only INFPs that get rubbed the wrong way.

    My only real problem with ENTJs is that relentless desire to lead everything. If they could just chill with that (in a social setting, at least) I wouldn't have a problem with them. In fact, if they could just chill period it would help a lot.

    They can seem like they're "too important to spend time with the likes of you or you're kind" or otherwise find your presence a waste of time.

    On a constructive note:They could avoid that impression if they sit down with someone (even if they actually don't spend more time) and simply breathe more deeply (even if they are impatient for something).

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
