    I happened to have an ENTJ brother, and an INTJ father and INTJ teacher, and this is what I noticed about the 3 of them:



    The ENTJ is much more practical and action-oriented than INTJs. The INTJs is more philosophical and contemplative than the ENTJ.

    The ENTJ is bossier than the INTJ and he tend to give unsolicited advice a lot such as he will keep giving me advice on how to improve on myself. The INTJ is more laidback in this aspect.

    The ENTJ cares a lot about his appearance. He drives a sports car, and he is always wearing nice clothes. The INTJs aren't as appearance-conscious and he isn't afraid of wearing ugly clothes.


    The ENTJ appears much more approachable and has better people-skills than INTJ. The INTJ can have really acidic tongue at times, whereas the ENTJ is much more diplomatic and tactful in this aspect. The ENTJ appears very charming and polished, whereas the INTJ appears more aloof and mysterious. Both INTJs and ENTJs can be pretty reserved, but if you put an INTJ and an ENTJ in a social situation, you will notice that the ENTJ is always going around socialising with everybody whereas the INTJ only socialise with familiar people. The INTJ tend to give off a "Don't mess with me" vibe whereas the ENTJ tend to give off a softer and warmer vibe but when you get to know them better you realised they aren't as soft as they appear to be.


    The ENTJ becomes even more calm and rational under stress and his first reaction under stress is to go into problem-solving mode whereas the INTJ displays anger outbursts and tantrums under stress.


    The ENTJ is much more driven than INTJ. He is always doing something. He is always busy. His schedule is always filled with activities. The ENTJ also has this tendency to get things done immediately. For example, my ENTJ brother was helping me to download this software a week ago, and the computer ended up crashing. And he immediately went to buy all the different computer components and then he fixed all the different components into the computer and downloaded the software all within a week. Despite his busy life with work, wife and children, he still managed to finish fixing the computer and installing the software all within a week. The INTJs are more laidback in this aspect


    And also, I remembered reading a thread before "Which intuitive has the biggest anger issues" and everybody mentioned ENTJ. But I wanna clear up this misconception.
    Based on the INTJ and ENTJ whom I interacted with, the ENTJ is actually very calm and rarely loses his temper, the INTJ is actually much more emotional than the ENTJ. My ENTJ brother only loses his temper once every few years, whereas my INTJ father and INTJ teacher loses their temper on a much more frequent basis.





    Anyway, these are just some of the differences that I observed between the ENTJs and INTJs whom I interacted with in real life.

    What major differences have you observed between INTJ and ENTJ? I'd love to hear your opinions too
    If this were all true it would be obvious that I am a INTJ, but I am not.

    But I would concur that ENTJs are the least empathetic of the NTs.

    Majority of ENTJs I've met made me look like a pussycat, and most of y'all old-timer-bitches on this board know that I'm not exactly a gentle fella. I get the sense that a lot of ENTJs are victims of their own success - they are very effective at getting things done by relying solely on brute force of Te and disregard of societal norms, so they never develop emotional intelligence. I can't count how many times I've seen ENTJs pay a gallon of blood for something they could have prevented with a gram of empathy.
    I laughed while reading this.

    At the highlighted. NTPs due to Fe appear more empathetic than INTJs but from my experience INTJs COMPUTE people's feelings much better than NTPs. I am NOT saying they are more empathetic - as I don't know what's going in their heads - but they are definitely more considerate of others' feelings OR capabilities. They are definitely more helpful than NTPs. I can't think of NTPs ever being reliably helpful. INTJs are some of the most helpful people I know.

    Also there is this saying:-
    INTPs - warm on the outside, cold on the inside.
    INTJs - cold inside and out.

    I agree with the INTPs description but not of the INTJs. There is this little thought in the minds of INTJs - 'is this appropriate or how will this person handle this' which makes them a bit more considerate than NTPs.

    Is this empathy? or is this a thought of 'how will this person handle this'? I don't know. I am not a INTJ.

    But I do know they are better at computing others' reactions more than NTPs. This makes them slightly more considerate of others than NTPs.

    As an INTJ, I find this is more of a deliberate calculation rather than an instinctive feeling. If it is empathy, it is what is often called cognitive empathy: we can determine what someone is probably feeling and experiencing based on knowing their situation, not because we somehow feel it directly.

    As for being considerate and even helpful, I think this comes from our overall goal-oriented perspective on life. We understand we will get more cooperation out of people and less trouble if we are considerate. Taken to its extreme, this is the search for that ideal "win-win" situation, in which I consider not only my own goals, but yours as well. Similarly, when I help someone, it is often because I see a problem that I am easily able to solve, so I do. The fact that it results in some significant benefit to the other person is incidental.

    If one has to resort to force, they can't be that intelligent.

    I observe that many ENTJs are exceptionally astute in observing the strengths and motivation of others-even motivations that individual doesnt realize they have. Pretty soon the person is doing things for the ENTJ without ever realizing they didnt want to do it in the first place-or the ENTJ [points out the inner motivation and you learn. When ENTJs use force, they often do get undercut, but when they utilize their understanding of others, they can be very impressive.


    As for INTJ/ENTJ diffs?

    The INTJ is the quiet, social awkward mastermind who thinks a great deal, doesnt deal well with rapid change but creates a plan to take over the world. However the INTJ has a gooey middle and can be influenced by those who showcase their values in over the top way. Generally-INTJs feel like they are morally correct, even if their ideas can be perceived by others as lacking in empathy-the INTJ can explain why it is still ok.

    The ENTJ is social much more aware and astute, "large" in presence, if not in speech, bold and high in expectations-and in thier ability to deliver for those whom they care deeply for. They expect a great deal from others. Many ENTJs are actually much more quiet than ESTJs-they can easily control indirectly. In addition to all the typical ENTJ descriptions-they have knee jerk empathic responses that can contrast dramatically with their ability to not care about the rightness of wrongness of their actions. Its a very Se version of Fi that can be extremely sweet-one moment they are saving a homeless puppy, right after they gave a rough tongue lashing to an under performing employee. They are much more sexually provocative in nature than an INTJ and do enjoying toying with their prey.

    God this is so true.

    This doesn't necessarily make them good people (depends on the person), and with everything, it is a choice that makes it a moral one.

    Nonetheless, when they do make that moral choice, AND they utilise that cognitive empathy on such a deep level (...depends on how intelligent the INTJ is of course, but assuming a relatively intelligent INTJ in touch with Fi, and knows how to use Te effectively--), it's always highly effective. I find that cognitive empathy is more meaningful when it comes to discerning mental states than affective empathy, anyway.

    "INTJ displays anger outbursts and tantrums under stress. "

    This is grip.

    I don't do shared office spaces well and it took a long time to realize this. Autonomy is not an option, it's a must. The corporate world is geared toward extroverts, which is why I'm turning my passion of woodworking into a business.

    Only by recently discovering MBTI and Enneagram have I begun to understand myself. I am different, eccentric, weird or whatever you want to call, and i'm slowly beginning to embrace it rather than consider it a bug - which it may still be. lmao

    I agree with this. I am not without the capacity for emotional empathy but I am more comfortable with the application of cognitive empathy.
