    Default An INTJ with ENTJ-ish tendencies.

    Is it very uncommon for an INTJ to act like an ENTJ, sometimes?
    And does it happen with me due to my action oriented enneagram (sub)type(1w2)?

    I know I do this now and then. It can be exhilarating, but takes alot of energy and I cannot keep it up for long.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    It happened to me in my mid-/late twenties. Everything stereotypical about a Te-dominant — order, execution, priorities, all before theory or relationships — exploded for about 5 years.

    I don't think it's uncommon, I do it at times. Maybe it stems from being an e8. Either way, I can't sustain it for too long.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Depends on how you're defining "acting like an ENTJ". INTJs are as aggressive as we are, but I don't see them as being as typically in your face unless they're cornered or otherwise under duress.
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    I can tell you that all INTJs have fantasies about being as effective and manipulative as they fantasize ENTJs to be.

    Seeing as I do think people can be type fluid, I'm not surprised or concerned by all of this. I have ENTP moments sometimes.

    Considering that we tend to be quite effective in turning "fantasy" into reality, it is a good thing that our fantasies are much more constructive than this.

    You're definitely effective in wanting to turn your fantasies into reality. Accomplishing that desire is another matter, and something I very seldom see from the ones i know- at least in a larger ratio of successes to failures. But hey, that's why reality is reality, and fantasy is fantasy. Do you think it's just the 90% failure rate that makes INTJs such a disillusioned and cynical lot by nature?
