    See to be honest most of the scary people who people typify as ENTJs are not ENTJs but are wannabes or people who arent behaving true to type but succeed in giving ENTJs a bad rap because they get labelled as ENTJ.

    Not every single authority figure or golden gecko is an ENTJ.

    They behave in ways that arent really associated with ENTJness though wouldnt you say?

    An ENTJ that's gotten their personality bent out of shape I imagine to be someone who's got hyper Fi (is that the right use of the i or should it be Fe, still getting this part of the theory down) and become moody or cant handle their emotions well. Their shadow is in their way big style.

    I just read the thread and see people considering healthy ENTJness to be scary.

    People seem to be intimidated by me. For example, when I started working at the job I've now been at for two years, people would avoid taking the register (Grocery store, FTW!) next to me, because I always seemed angry. They would be rude to me for no reason, forcing me to be a bitch because I felt isolated when I wasn't even mad to begin with, and then about six months in I was about to quit because it was horrible...something magical happen.

    This enfp chick who was hired at the same time...she came up to me, noticing I was near tears -- A monster who cries?! and it was during the holiday season -- and she realized that I actually did have feelings. Up until that point, they thought I was this thing that was angry, loud, and overbearing.

    I couldn't imagine another college-job now. I think it is a matter of being perceived as angry and intimidating, like you are going to bite people's heads off at any moment. When people see that you aren't that way at all, we become less scary.

    New people are still frightened by me though. I tend to come on strong as I try to size people up as soon as they start working, while everyone else kind of watches to see my reaction to them. New people hate me at first, but in a couple weeks we (most of the time) are good chums.

    This.

    I don't know if I know a whole lot of ENTJs, but I know one for sure and he's extremely reasonable and actually has a calming presence, because he's not bothered by much. At least he affects me that way. I also think ExTJs are nurturing in this weird sort of way *if they like you*.

    He just talks about business and money and success, and seems driven to do things. He's really nice. Really, really nice. But he makes sick jokes like an INTJ would...like once he said he likes to hurt cute things so I'd better watch out.

    When I first met him I was mildly intimidated for about five minutes, but then he opened his mouth.

    I've met a lot of different ENTJs.

    I really can't find one uniform opinion about this type, but that's like most all types, really.

    I've read that they like to give out orders even when there's no reason to do so. My Dad, who is an ENTJ (albeit only barely a thinker) does this all the time. If I was opening a door, he might direct me to "Open the door." I was always thinking, "What do you think I'm doing here?" He loves to direct people, even if they don't need it. He always evaluates my every move, usually negatively. I think you could argue he has some unhealthy ENTJ traits. Now that I understand him better, I know that's just his way of trying to make the best of a situation. However, it still can be bothersome. He is quite overbearing at times. He just can't stop doing it; I've tried to help him stop but he isn't capable. He knows this, and has trouble tolerating that I often don't do what he says. So, it sadly becomes a mutual lack of tolerance. He isn't especially scary though; when he wants to be he could be, but he's just a mad director, not an intimidator.

    There are other ENTJs I've met in life who fit the "scary" image and scare the crap out of certain people. I understand why some find them scary, but I don't personally find them to be that way because I tend to see through their fascades. I think only unhealthy ENTJs rely heavily on intimidation of others to promote themselves. I've met a few of these ENTJs. They tend to be neutral with me, but occasionally I meet one that doesn't like me. When this happens, our personalities repel each other and interaction becomes either minimal or completely non-existant. When I see how they treat others, though, I'm glad it's this way. Not that unhealthy INFJs are any better, by any means. But we're talking about ENTJs here.

    The ENTJs I'm really cool with tend to not fit the stereotypical unhealthy images. They embody the positive traits of the personality type such as reliability, honesty, integrity and intelligence, without being overbearing. It's kind of how good INTJs are; the unhealthy ones are arrogant and elitest sometimes, but the healthy ones care for others and help them. They just tend to do it because they "think" it's the right thing, not because they "feel" it's the right thing. Honestly, it doesn't matter if thinking or feeling triggers your decisions as long as you're making the right decisions.
    A hero is someone who does the right thing without expectation of reward, just because it's the right thing to do.
