    Default WHY would an ENTJ like an ENFP?

    Seriously. I want to know.

    Think about it. ENFPs can be rambunctious, emotional, disorganized, zany, highly carefree, 'floaty', and the list goes on.

    ENTJs (from what I know personally), are emotionally well-kept, rational, decisive, logical, calculating, focused, and the list also goes on.

    In my opinion, ENTJs are almost entirely opposite than the ENFP. I would think an ENTJ would see the ENFP as aimless, without direction, and too emotional.

    Correct me if I'm wrong. I know not all ENTJs are emotionless hard-asses, but really. Wouldn't the ENFP drive them up a wall?

    Tell me what you think.

    I really enjoy interactions with emotionally healthy ENFPs. They're easy to understand, since they also use Te and Fi within their four primary functions. Since Fi is their aux, where it's our inferior, they can help us to understand it a bit better if we ask. We challenge their Te use.

    My ENTJ best friend will now and then tell me I need to slack less, but apart from that we understand each other very well and mesh very well as well.

    But I'm sure ENTJ would be a no no in terms of romantic relationship.

    You're welcome. You guys also help us to let loose a bit more since you won't jump our asses for being too domineering.

    I don't agree. My hormones are very selective.

    I can't see anything that might be considered as a negative characteristic.


    ENTJs (from what I know personally), are emotionally well-kept, rational, decisive, logical, calculating, focused, and the list also goes on.
    Ahah, no...you might not have gotten to know them yet. I mean, not enough to see all their facets. I don't think we are that well-kept, rational and calculating. We're extraverts, can be impulsive and highly messy.


    In my opinion, ENTJs are almost entirely opposite than the ENFP. I would think an ENTJ would see the ENFP as aimless, without direction, and too emotional.
    Being aimless is not something I consider as a particularly negative asset, unless we're teaming for a darts tournament (lol). Being too emotional can be problematic insofar as there's a large amount of negative emotions floating around, but if it's a balanced emotionality, it doesn't hurt - it seems necessary in order to live a full life.


    Correct me if I'm wrong. I know not all ENTJs are emotionless hard-asses, but really. Wouldn't the ENFP drive them up a wall?
    Idk the only problem I could see with ENFPs would be if they tried to change too much their daily plans on a whim - being often late, etc. etc. so "pratical" problems. OTOH I personally have ENFP friends and I've never had these kind of problems with them.

    I think ENFPs and ENTJs have a very similar sense of humor, too. They (we?) can understand typically "EN" jokes which many people miss and/or consider excessively zany I've had a brief romantic relationship with an ENFP girl, but we both decided we were better suited for a friendship (read: there wasn't a particularly high degree of physical chemistry).

    I think romantically, ENTJs would be better fit with INTPs. Both are dominant thinkers and intuitive, but with orientation reversed. ENFPs, on the other hand, are best fit with INFJs and INTJs.
    You lose.
