    Yeah, hmmmm. Now that this is in print, it's sounding even worse.
    That's awful, I'm unsure that this is to do with him being ENTJ so much as a less than exemplary individual when it comes to processing and managing his feelings, whatever feelings he was experiencing which caused for the drink driving, and they could've been good feelings, not even anxiety or anything like that, he needs to address that, big style.

    I'm an archetypical ENTJ, not great with feelings, its not a strong function, it can be overwhelming and I usually have to look for it as spontaneously experience it but I dont behave irresponsibly as a consequence.

    That sounds exactly like what's happening with him, except yes, he IS behaving irresponsibly and selfishly. He seems to logically acknowledge what the end result will be to a given situation, but then emotionally he resents the consequences and feels like they dont apply to him.

    His emotional life is like being on the moon for him.

    Sounds like this ENTJ is in a Se-grip. When Se manifests, it kicks you around the block until you can assimilate it.

    xNTJs are great at feigning being a pansy when they're a badass and a badass when they're a pansy. We're tricky bastards.

    That's what I attributed it to as well. It's like he just can't stop. He's indulging himself on a binge-worthy level, and it's obvious his self control is nowhere to be found. He'll even agree that, logically, XYZ will occur, and that it will be foolish, but then he'll do it anyway. He keeps managing to find a way out of the situations he perpetrates.

    As badass as XNTJs can be, the description seemed like that of a 13 year old boy not getting what he wanted.
