People please...it's Christmas. Give the gift of RESPECT. Much like herpes it's the gift that keeps on giving.
Yes, I'm looking at you ThatGirl, Jaguar, et al.
Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

I don't exactly agree with Thatgirl, but Jag - you're again trying to give as your "solution" that someone's not an ENTJ. Wonder why you're so stuck with that routine. You should know that MBTI types only give a good match to some people - a deficiency of the instrument. Yet, per theory, everyone supposedly has an MBTI type.
In response to Thatgirl: I'm usually relaxed and happy when meeting people for the first time in real life. I give them the benefit of doubt and expect they're ok. I usually enjoy my time, whether alone or with someone, so I'm enjoying my time with them, as well.
My moods carry on from situation to another, so I don't just think people on technical grounds, and not just by cost-benefit analysis or something like that. Of course, I'm interested of finding some common themes, something we both can benefit from.
Gamine, after dealing with your nonsense in the mensa thread you can go bait someone else.
Firstly, I'm genuinely interested in what ENTJ means to you. The OP is trying to give an impression of the type, if you disagree with it, why not add your own experiences (seeing as how you are an ENTJ)? It makes sense to me to ask for this, especially with your complete disagreement with her terms. If those are different for you, share them
Secondly, I'm not baiting you here, nor did in the other thread. I have a sense of humour, but I'm not malicious. That takes too much energy, and I'm way too lazy for that. Do I need to litter my responses to you with sunshine and hearts to get that across?
Lastly, you are the one who started posting pictures of the KKK in response to one of my posts there. You did it in humour, and I responded in kind. Don't treat others like that unless you can take as much as you dish out.
That said, I'm still curious. Are you willing to cooperate ? I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings or was rude to you, not my intent.

Didn't I say something similar to you on the other thread?
The difference between this thread and the other one is that you disagreed with the majority of people there without backing up your claims. Jaguar is part of the majority on this one so he does not need to backup his claims. TG herself should be the one backing up her claims on why she is an ENTJ.

For the record, I have not now, nor ever, been controlled into responding to a situation in which I am baited by someone else's' desire. Everyone who is enjoying the witch hunt, go read up on WWII.
To respond to the "using people". Perhaps a bad choice of words, but as I stated before everyone sizes up people for utility. It is ridiculous to be open to associations that have nothing to offer, even if that is solely conversation. I personally do look at what people have to offer. Not saying that they have nothing if it doesn't pertain to me, only that if it doesn't I will see no need for us to get any closer. I think that is pretty standard for everyone.
Ok... does an INFP really have to bring us back to a more relevant and efficient conversation? Really? Has it come to that?
This topic has turned almost entirely to a discussion of ThatGirl personally, rather than the subject of ENTJ's. A more efficient criticism of ThatGirl within the context of the topic would be (as some did) disagreeing and putting forth what you believe ENTJs actually do instead. As an INFP who would love to know more about how ENTJs tick, I would appreciate if we got back on topic.
(And now I wait in ridiculous INFP-esque dread of someone getting pissy at me for stating the obvious. Oh the joys of being an overly emotional NF...)
