I currently run a construction company (family business. Dad and siblings are too busy with their other careers so it fell upon me, naturally). My work comprises of coordinating project managers at our various construction sites and ensuring the projects are completed in time and on budget, doing the accounting (I veto-ed the suggestion of hiring an accountant), sourcing for new projects, dealing with clients... my friends have commented that I do at least two full-time jobs.

    Now, quite a bit of my work requires me to yell at people. Yes, yell. That's the only language the project managers understand, apparently. In the 2 months I have been working here, I have tried everything in the book; diplomacy, compromise... everything. The only thing that works, when the project isn't completed on time or goes over budget - without a valid reason - is a display of anger. My extremely efficient ESFJ logistics manager does that very, very well, bless her. But she does have her own job to do so I can't permanently rely on her to do that.

    Now, this has taken a toll on me, physically and emotionally. By the end of every altercation, I'm completely drained and, now, my ulcers are acting up big-time. I don't want to crash and burn but it looks as though I'm headed that way.

    I LOVE my work (and never, ever want to go back to employment) so I can't quit. What I want to know, is how to do the cold, extremely-assertive ENTJ thing where I will not necessarily yell but I will tell you to do X and if you know what's good for you, you will do X.

    Kthxbai.
    My father is a real estate developer, and he has been doing construction from bottom to top for 25 years.

    In this case, I know first-hand that yelling is part of the job.

    Are you feeling insignificant?


    Since when do people have to ASK an ENTJ?

    Maybe the thread title should read "Have an ENTJ tell you what to do"!

    for a fee?

    Quick questions:
    1- Do you have a preference for extroverts or introverts?
    2- How appealing are casual relationships to you?
    3- Do you enjoy parties?
    4- Do you drink regularly? Do you do any other type of drug?

    Thanks

    1) introverts (if we're referring to romance)
    2) not that much
    3) yeh, I love parties
    4) I drink when I'm out at some party and/or eating, don't do any other drugs because I still practice sports
