Come to think of it I don't think having high standards is the reason why ENTJs have issues with the opposite sex. It is simpler yet more complicated than that.
when an ENTJ say "high whats up" it sounds like "hey who goes there" or "shut the fuck up".
Seriously you guys sound too aggressive.
When you guys try to flirt with girls it almost always starts to sound like an job interview. Tooooooo serious and official. And you guys know that you hit the wrong tone. Therefor ENTJs just try to keep it simple and OFFICIAL to not fuk things up even more.
No more cute conversations.
I know you wouldn't won't to agree but it is the truth. Just put some F(e) in to your conversations. You'll do fine.
This is really inaccurate and insulting. You are simply describing someone who lacks social skills. Your use of "simple" also makes me think you are another one of those people who perceive ENTJ's as ESTJs which we are NOT.
I don't know how you guys (ENTJs) do in love, but you totally kick a*s in business!
Let me elaborate.
I was a part of summer internship program in a big FMCG company couple years ago. It was a pretty prestigious thing - couple thousands students from the best universities applied and there were only 40 places to be taken.
Long story short, at the end of the program they made us pass MBTI test. I, as a HR intern, was working on collecting&analysing the data. Here it goes: out of the forty people who managed to get into this program 21 were ENTJs. I mean... can you imagine? It's over 15 times more than statistically should be found in this sample!
I was one out of 3 ENFJs, I think we had 4 ENFPs and the rest was scattered. ENTJs just ruled!
"Act as though it was impossible to fail."
I used to think this is true, but right now - I'm not really sure if that wonderful learning process and those experiences we share are actually worth the price of thousands of misunderstandings, outbursts and conflicts. There's such a huge difference behind the obvious attraction, and tolerance has its own limits.
Tink, I think you're on to something. I get the sense, after reading a lot about NT's in love, they are even more idealistic than NFs. But in a very different way. Not what I'd call the general idea of idealism, and maybe that's why, they are so hard to live up to. ?
Both are just as idealistic. But NF`s tend to be more forgiving and accepting of faults/differences. Especially those with Fe.

...sadly its...the only way.
Boo hoo. At least you like a type that we have an excess of. I have to adore ENTJ's who are less than scarce and don't give a crap about INFJ's.
