    Default Question for ENTJs and other NTs

    Is it natural for you to use abstract thoughts and communication and get it in the sudden? What if an ENTJ and an ENTP that I know rarely have any abstract thoughts then does that mean they're not intuitives? But I know this one ENTJ thinks past that 'surface' and is a deep thinker. I need some answers to this, thank you.

    The thing about ENTJ's is that a lot of the time you wont find them spouting abstract idea's all the time. The dominance of Te is like lead keeping the balloon of the abstract within the Earths atmosphere. Compared to the ENTP who is like a factory of abstract idea's. For the ENTP, anything and everything can be valid, whereas the ENTJ things are only possible if they further the "right". I suppose the reason is because the ENTP has a dominant intuitive function while the ENTJ's intuitive function is secondary and is used when they need a different perspective on things or when they want to see what lies beyond appearances.

    ENTJs do think in abstract terms but when communicating, we've consolidated the abstract into its simplest terms so that anyone, regardless of intelligence level or type, can understand us. No use communicating if people don't understand you.

    exactly. abstractions are great for theorizing, but you have to be able to explain them to people.

    Note: Tertiary Extraverted Sensing versus Auxiliary Introverted Intuition.

    (This arrangement, along with Dom Te and along with increased sensor environment, causes Te-Se. This makes ENTJ's generally appear less intuitive than other intuitive types. (which, in turn, causes an actual declination of overall preference(low utility in sensor environment) for intuition which results into an actual "ENTJ's are generally less intuitive than other intuitive types."))

    Assumptive. Appearance of doesn't equal actual. Work with Ni for awhile and you'd eat your post.

    The ENTJ I know can be very abstract in communication. I think other people find it difficult to understand where she is coming from because she's start in the middle, back up a little, and then go in any direction from there. She speaks in a way that you have to fill in the gaps and they are often big ones.

    As far as other stuff...give her an abstract idea and she can see very clearly what needs to be done next: "This needs to be here, that needs to be there, and you're going to need to do...." She can rapidly turn an idea into a verb.

    I wish I was more like that.

    On the downside, she's much less likely to want to theorize about anything. She may point out some bullets and then she wants to go on to the next thing.
