    Hilariously, I'm getting precisely the same response from ENTJs now that I got from INFPs when I wrote about Fi.

    "OMG YOU HAVE A DEEP-SEATED HATRED BECAUSE OF PAST EMOTIONAL TRAUMA"

    I wrote like five posts and made a poll. It took a grand total of an hour. That doesn't really constitute "obsession", and it's interesting that the only people inventing nonsensical emotional motivation for me here are ENTJs, the group in question.

    Inferior Fi rears its ugly head?




    No poll is necessary for that; the answer is yes.

    See, the fact that you're entering the stage of "denial" just further proves that you're experiencing some sort of grief.

    I've had generally positive experiences working with ENTJs. They knew how to utilize my continuous brainstorms into an implementation stage. Rarely, did anyone else understand my ideas like they did. Their strength is my weakness, so I don't view their "managing" with a negative connotation. It's more "guidance" in my experience.

    Only one semi-bad experience with a female ENTJ. I think she felt entitled to manage me in a claustrophobic way because I usually respect her thoughts a lot (she's my maternal aunt, so of course she's going to take on some maternal-like behaviors with her neice). She backed off quickly when I told her to stop giving advice in an area I didn't want her to have any influence over though. Overall, positive with a few "glitchy" moments!

    Given the usual make-up of the knowledge base of the MBTI here, what good is a popular poll going to be?

    If it's okay for US government elections, it should be allowed here.

    That logic doesn't follow at all.

    I only know two ENTJs, but they do both micromanage, so I voted yes. One of them (my boss) only seemed to micromanage things he cared about, and otherwise kept his nose out of things. The other (a friend of mine) is such an extreme micromanager that she once even tried to micromanage her mom when her mom was cooking dinner for us (even though her mom is an excellent cook and knows much more about cooking than her ENTJ daughter).

    Edit: I realized micromanaging has a negative connotation, but I don't actually mind it. In the case of my friend I just find it funny, and in the case of my boss it was usually very helpful.

    Again I'll ask you: Why do you think this ENTJ overbearing stereotype exists? Is it just a conspiracy or does it happen frequently enough to create this impression?

    Every stereotype is based on some sort of truth. While it's a mistake to assume a stereotype applies to 100% of group members, it's reasonable to note that a significant portion of the group shows certain characteristics.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    here's a third way of looking at it:
    one person says so, another person agrees, and the rest are uneducated enough to think they see it too.

    ever heard of mass hysteria?

    No? Everyone is given equal voting weight regardless of the veracity of their views and whether they're qualified to even run their own lives.

    The systems are identical. If it's good enough for the US government, it's good enough for a typology poll.
