    Hello, @SamanHit, and welcome to the forum. There are plenty of people here who would be happy to help you figure out your type. It is hard, though, when you have just joined and we have only a couple posts to go by. I suggest you check out some of the threads in the Online Personality Tests subforum, starting with the top one, created here. Some of the threads in the MBTI and Cognitive Functions subforum might be helpful as well. Meanwhile, make some posts on whatever topics interest you, so people can get to know you better. Consider this type-me a thread to be a work in progress. Eventually you should get some helpful replies.

    Default Shouldn't have to ask

    I would ask some other questions that could help you decide:

    ENTJs often prefer a life of business, scheduled out hour by hour. ENTJs are pros at organizing people and getting them to support their causes.

    INTJs on the other hand, don’t always want their life to be scheduled strictly, and INTJs are well known as school-haters for this very reason. They are efficient in completing tasks, but often, those tasks are done without other people, and thus, don’t require a schedule. They do not enjoy leadership roles unless necessary. They are more introspective and in tune with their emotions than ENTJs.

    Which do you picture yourself as?

    i prefer a scheduled life mainly becasue it makes things much easier specially at work.i also tend to be a bit bossy and people often tell me that i get on their nerves casue im too serious and rigid...while i can be very controlling i do most of my things alone cause i dont really need the help of other people in doing my stuff.

    i hated school though becasue most things they teach you there is time wasting and they dont have any use in real life(specially in my country becasue they teach too much religious stuff)

    but i crave leadership roles and i really like to be in charge...its the goal of my life

    It sounds a lot like you have been taken in by many frustrating stereotypes about extroverts:

    -That we are loud
    -That we get along with/love everyone
    -That we are very open
    -That we talk to much

    None of these have anything to do with being an Extrovert and have more to do with the individual. Frankly, I have NO idea where you got the idea the impression that ENTJ correlates to being more emotional than INTJ. We're pretty much the same on that front.

    As I often explain to others " I do not LIKE people. I am just bored without them." I detest small talk and have even abandoned friendships over their habit of speaking for hours and saying nothing.

    “ they’re on our left, they’re on our right, they’re in front of us, they’re behind us…they can’t get away this time”

    "These voices scream at me "Let it go!"
    (never let go)
    This time I'm screaming back "No! No! No!"
    (Go on say no)
    My mind's made up, yeah my fear is gone
    Open my eyes now here I come: Oblivion."

    Intj.
    “I touch people. I think everyone needs that.”

    “I don’t go by the rule-book. I lead from the heart, not the head.”

    “I think the biggest disease the world suffers in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month. I’m very happy to do that. I want to do that.”

    “I wear my heart on my sleeve.”
