    Default ENTJ individuation thread

    This is a thread for ENTJ individuation notes, sentiments, and ideas.

    The ENTJ post 25:

    This is the time in life when the ENTJ is discovering sensing. They may have played sports before but now they are discovering the world of ambidexterity, competition, and physical agility at it's finest. They may engage SE through taking up martial arts, an instrument, or carpentry among other things.

    This in turn will stimulate the ENTJ's brain and cause him or her to evolve or individuate. It will be a synergistic effect of making the personality whole.

    ENTJ's who are over 25 but do not engage SE and learn to be in the present moment will be miserable, argumentative, or harassers. They will hate and bicker and harm others with their crustiness. They will not notice how their negative argumentation affects others because they lack the compassion which only flows through when one is in the present moment.

    Hence, we see that the ENTJ forums on many sites are toxic waste dumps of enmity and hatred. This is because the ENTJ who does not engage in sensation becomes a warped INTJ, a dysfunctional one, before going into the shadow functions unconsciously.

    INTJ's are special types with profound abilities that many ENTJ's envy. But when an ENTJ becomes like an INTJ it is a sad state.

    SENSING AS THE INNER CHILD:

    Sensing for the ENTJ is considered the third function in the stack. The third function is alluded to in literature as the child archtype.

    Certainly there are aspects of the inner child which are seperate from sensation but perhaps not so until it has been integrated which is part of the theory of individuation as initially posited by psychoanalysis in the Jungian flavor.

    So what does this mean for the ENTJ?

    His extroverted sensing activities are prone to the same positives and negatives of what we might expect from this archtype:

    Positives: Dynamic creativity, exploration, youthful optimism, fresh energy, and any other things which you might objectively/subjectively attribute to the archtype of a child.
    Negatives: Exaggeration of accomplishments, youthful Foley, prone to fits and tantrums, childish and immature behaviour.

    We can see this inner child manifest positively in the realm of entertainment with Jim Carrey whose humor is often times deeply intertwined with impressions (NI+SE+FI tapping into FE) exaggerated physically and comically. He is very childish but found a way to leverage and sophisticate it for lack of better words.

    A dangerous thing here is the ENTJ in mma. He may overestimate his abilities in the ring. Also, another manifestation of this is that ENTJ athletes will enjoy a sort of delayed improvement that other types might not experience. As an ENTJ myself even though I was athletic as a youth I never fully clicked with sensory activities until I was older and started working on my agility and ambidexterity.

    Why do ENTJ's have explosive anger and displacement?

    ENTJ's may have anger issues. It's no secret, every mbti site which lists ENTJ weaknesses lists the inferior FI symptom of "sudden outbursts of emotion." Surprisingly, this also means crying. Most ENTJ's will cry instead of throw fits of anger but there are the few that will do both or just the later.

    How does this work? Why are the prone to sudden fits. Well the third function tends to get hi-jacked by the fourth. FI will literally hijack SE. SE should be approached consciously but when the ENTJ is acting unconsciously it is FI+SE that is running the show not TE+SE.

    As you might have read above, the third function is childish in nature. IT is related to the child arch-type.

    So how might we expect a childish SE to operate under the guidance of FI? Well you guessed it...punching walls, breaking objects, sudden fits of rage, all of these are qualities and characteristics of an inferior SE+FI combination.

    Another example of this is anger displacement. This is when the ENTJ is yelling at you for yelling at them, or vice versa, yells at you and when you yell at them to stop they yell even louder.

    THIS is the most common example of an SE hijacking by introverted feeling. Instead of using SE in a calm objective manner the eNTJ has let his unconcious govern his actions and we know from Jungian typology and theory that the inferior function is submerged in the unconcious, hence the anima, animus conjecture posed by Jung.
