    Seriously... Sometimes I wonder if people can't feel some kind of vibe we ENTJ's try to control and hide. My real personality is directive and bossy. I control myself not to appear this way or else I would have serious problems with others and wouldn't get anywhere. Still, people sense this.

    But if I was 100% myself, I think most people would become traumatized, faint, develop spots, become hysterical, develop a personality disorder and commit hara-kiri.

    I felt like I've been socialized to feel ashamed of my directive tendencies. Everything teaches you to be submissive. School does. Groups do. People try to control your behavior. If you want to lead, you can only do it in a limited frame where you have to respect all these social norms and rules. You have to endure authority at work before you get to lead too. If people sense you want to lead too much, you're a target for trouble by the leader. So, the best coping mechanism I've found is to appear introverted and indecisive... and to patiently wait the moment to step in. It works pretty well!

    Isn't the MBTI about finding who you are and doing what you really enjoy? OK! Thanks Mr. Consultant, where do I sign up to have the right to boss everyone around and tell them to get screwed if they don't obey me? Didn't your test tell me I was the "Leader". So... Napoleon, Bill Gates, Thatcher... Yes I see. Right! Just don't tell others, heh?
    Well said. This is the best post I've read all day.

    You appear to have a very limited vocabulary and lack the ability to identify the correct responses for a variety of different questions. A deficient vocabulary can hinder you in many ways; you may struggle to find the correct words when speaking, fail to understand what others are communicating to you, or come across as inarticulate to others.

    I have 3 ENTJs in my life: my mother and two female friends I've known for a long time.
    My mother can be formidable but I'm not intimidated by here because she's my mother.
    My two friends were (and often are still) intimidated by me. I don't understand why, since one was dating a close friend of mine when we met so I went out of my way to be kind and welcoming to her.

    I've never found them to be intimidating... except when they're angry. They're freaking scary when they're angry. :eek:

    The INTP in me is not impressed by displays of power or authority.

    I can see that.

    I've seen ENFJs be freaking scary when they're angry as well.

    I recognize I'm a bit scary when I'm angry. This is also because I try hard to never ever express negative emotions, so when I do, it means that there are many things that have been accumulated.

    Similar trigger for me, but slightly different result other than still being scary. I've talked about it here a few times so I'll link it when I get around to it.

    Edit: got around to it here

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
