    Yes, I love to suck up to people I don't even know. Have you had numerous experiences where you've been pwned by ENTJ's? Is that why you fight them so hard? It reminds me of this video (you're the guy in white beginning at the 1:45 mark).

    The closest I see them come to being actually intimidated - at the time of the situation - is when they're wrong-footed by somone who simply does something so unexpected that they miss that split second chance to respond that you have, before any response you make is pointless cos you've "lost".

    The one I used to live with would however, sometimes admit once removed from a situation, when looking over it and analysing it, that he was intimidated, or that he was *now* that he thought about what was at stake and what the odds were. He liked to think, and have other people think, that any opposition just spurred him on - ANY. But the reality was that there was often the odd few minutes where he'd secretly *gulp* just before shaking it off and getting down to business.

    ENTJ's seem to me to be defined by courage. Courage isn't not feeling fear - that's just stupidity or obliviousness. It's when you don't allow your fear to control you.

    With an ENTJ more than anyone else, I find it depends on the particular opinion they hold.

    I love ENTJ's I agree with politically, and have become good friends.

    The ones I disagree with I find overbearing and oblivious to the fact that I and the whole meeting/class just want them to stop relentlessly pressing home the same point in slightly different ways during hour-long monologues.

    A lot of people don't like what they don't understand and I think a lot of S's don't understand N's. So, I think a lot of NT's (and NF's) fall into this category of not being understood or liked by the masses. But, I think the Te makes it worse for ENTJ's (Te is good in many respects, but not always in terms of being "liked") in that it can sometimes be seen by others as aggressive and domineering (and perhaps borderline arrogant).

    Being an NT, I think in a similar way to ENTJ's, but I have the benefit of being able to slip into Ne mode and/or Fe mode. Also, since my T is introverted, I don't always show that "blunt" side of myself to others. If someone is talking to me and they say something lame or make a fool of themselves or if it becomes a debate or a decision has to be made, I can either (a) pull out the Ti weaponry (isn't always necessary), or (b) show the softer, more creative (Ne) or agreeable (Fe) sides.

    Te and Se are "less willing to budge". They can be like a brick wall. Ne and Fe come off much more agreeable.

    There is a specific example where I was intimidated by a situation and am sure many ENTJ's can relate to this.

    I found people didn't respond very well to that outspoken style of critical, analytical thinking. For example, people felt the need to make cheap jokes or comments in unison whilst around me and keep ranting about behaviours of mine such as "talks too much" "rude" "annoying" "always has to be right" etc.
    It went as far as having constant heated arguments with family, friends, teachers and work colleagues.

    The thing that intimidated me about this was that I always assumed people were plotting against me (not paranoia!)
    There was always the vicious cycle where I confronted people about their behaviours and it certainly did shut them up for a while, but I kept getting met with more resistance.

    After a while, I realised what intimidated me about these situations was not that people had feelings of resentment towards me (I certainly don't give a damn) but that I could not find most people on the same level as me in terms of being upfront, direct and serious with others.

    I matured to understand that individual reactions to my strong-willed behaviour are better left unspoken about. If people could not see I had genuine intentions, it was their problem, and later on down the track it certainly proved to be true as many people turned to me as a friend and apologised for their past misunderstanding and treatment of me.

    As I read many of the post's, it can be suggested that most ENTJ's have control over their fears but the Feeling-oriented situations especially in regards to communication can cause uncertainty about others that is seen as deep-seated intimidation.

    I think ENTJs are intimidated by situations in which they *know* they'll have to be empathical with people they care deeply about. For example, if your dad died and your IxFx mom would be in shambles, and you just know rationally that the best way to help her with her grief would be to give her a hug, share her pain and show her some emotion.

    Just an example. In a broader sense, I'm referring to a situation where the ENTJ just knows that empathy and sharing feelings is the rational key to handle the situation the best way possible. That's hard for an ENTJ, and I think they'd be pretty intimidated by such a situation.

    Having said that, I'm often jealous at how ENTJs can just 'not give a damn rat's ass' about other people's feelings. Especially in business situations, that is often very useful.

    I can relate to what you're saying, though I am not sure the reaction it would inspire is exactly fear. I dread such situations myself, but associate them more with a feeling of frustration and helplessness. I want to help, I know what is needed, but I also know that my strengths and abilities are useless, and that my feeble attempts to exercise empathy and emotional support may do more harm than good. Fortunately, I have not often been placed in this position.

    I wouldn't call this intimidation.
    ENTJs can be intimidated, if by 'intimidation' we mean a fear from the opponent. It's a rare sight, and they immediately overcompensate - which doesn't mean it didn't happen. I think they're superb at quickly reacting and turning the feeling to their advantage though.

    I don't think I saw my ENTJ ex-girlfriend ever intimidated. Little bit shaken and stirred, maybe, after the mental ass-kicking that sometimes went both ways between us, but not really intimidated.

    The same goes with all suspected ENTJ guys. No matter what happens they always seem to be in control.
