    It's really amazing that you've decided this guy can't possibly share a type with you without ever having met or interacted with him in any way, based on about three lines of information I gave you about him.

    You're so insistent on disallowing anyone who's "beneath you" to share your MBTI type that you think you can type people you know nothing about better than those who have actually met and spent significant time interacting with them.

    As for the bathroom guy, I've known him for 10 years and he's definitely ENTJ. He's not stupid, either; he just has some bizarre pet peeves and is kind of a control freak. Unhealthy ENTJs tend to have similar control issues.

    Of course, I'm sure having negative characteristics of any kind totally precludes him from being ENTJ in your mind.

    At this point I'm watching to see if Simulated World is emotionally capable of admiting defeat.


    Does any of this count?

    Okay, I have to concede that I've met an unusual sample of ENTJs in my personal experience then.

    In any event I did learn something from this thread, and that's that I've met an unusually micromanaging sample of ENTJs in my experience.

    I can conclude that the data set I'm working with (ENTJs I've met) probably contains an unusually high number of micromanagers that doesn't reflect the overall ENTJ population.

    Looking back on it, I probably would have had a better point if I'd used a more applicable wording. If I'd said, "Do ENTJs have a tendency to be overbearing and controlling?", I'd probably have gotten a lot more "yes" answers. I guess "micromanaging" is just the wrong word for the point I was trying to make.

    And I agree--at this point it seems to be about propping up Jaguar's delusions of grandeur that there's no such thing as a stupid or unsuccessful ENTJ--in order to be those things he'd have to be a Sensor, of course.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I'd say that was more of an ESTJ trait. ENTJs tend to give you a task and let you get on with it.

    No way, dude. ENTPs can't do anything wrong. If they did they'd be Sensors.

    That's as ridiculous as calling someone ENTJ for caring about guests using a bathroom and throwing a kid against the wall.
    You make no sense, whatsoever.

    What's next- claiming someone is ENTJ for eating a strawberry?
