    Default What's the difference between ENTJ & ENFJ thoughts?

    Elucidate the temperament distinctions for me thanks. Situational examples are appreciated.

    I was wondering whether this should go to NT or NF as its a bit of both.

    i like entjs. enfjs feel odd to me. I want to like them but it's like we are talking through jello.

    However it turns out most other people are terrified of ENTJs. They are just yelling, I mean how bad can that be? Just yell back.

    With ENTJs, you have a better idea of knowing where you stand. My brother is an ENFJ and tries to appease people to their face, making him popular. Then, when their back is turned, he has no problem chewing people up. He will only stand for his principles in front of those that share the same principles. I will always love my baby brother, but I think he's a coward and a snake for that.

    The biggest distinctions I've observed between the two types is:

    ENFJ: more subjective, more concerned about doing right by people, personal goals usually have a heavy emphasis on successful interpersonal relationships.

    ENTJ: more objective, more willing to see people as tools to accomplish things (and more willing to go through people if they present obstacles to the ENTJ), goals usually have a heavy emphasis on inanimate things - business, finances, best method of attack, etc.

    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    ENFJ - Will use persuasion and maybe a hug to change your mind.
    ENTJ - Will give you a beat down until you see it their way (usually verbal).
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I think the aim difference is their area of focus. ENFJs are people orientated, ENTJs are thing/event orientated. Each is concerned over there particular area, and so develops skills appropriate.

    ENFJs are concerned about people, but they also use people to get the job done. To them people are the issue, the cause of the issue and the cure for the issue. When faced with a problem, they tend to think "who can solve this" rather than "what can solve this".

    ENTJs are concered with more material goals. They think "what needs to be done" before they think "who can I rope in as aids". To the ENTJ, people may be part the issue, they may the cure for the issue, but they are not the issue. The issue is getting this bridge built, or whatever.
