ESTP + ENTJ relationships, compatibility, dating

These two types usually get along great. Lets see why...

Similarities

ESTPs and ENTJs have quite a lot of things in common. At first sight one might even confuse the two types. They both usually have a “larger than life” attitude, both are prone to thrill seeking, have good people skills, are not personally threatened by conflict or criticism and both are cool headed in emergency situations.

These two types are usually not at conflict with each other and there is ground for a fun relationship between them. A “buddy” relationship is almost bound to form between an ESTP and ENTJ of the same sex if they’re exposed to each other for a sufficient amount of time.



Love relationships

However, an ESTP male and an ENTJ female could face some trouble in a love relationship because ESTP males don’t usually seek out dominant women for a relationship and an ENTJ woman might be just “too much” for them. In a reversed situation (ENTJ male, ESTP female) the relationship is usually easier.

The ENTJ is usually in a more favorable position in this relationship unless the ESTP is in a much higher position in society (either by education, moneywise or socially). The ESTP usually sees the ENTJ as a very intelligent person and admires them in that respect. This can be positive because the ENTJ desires to be seen as smart and competent.

Conflict in this relationship is a rare thing because the ENTJ appreciates the ESTP’s laid back and fun nature and nothing is taken too seriously or personally (both are thinkers).

Conclusion to ESTP ENTJ compatibility

Although for a long term love relationship people should seek someone who has the same perceiving letter (N or S), the ESTP-ENTJ relationship has the potential to be ideal if there is some natural attraction between the two people involved.

ENFP + ENTJ relationships, compatibility, dating

Even though these two personality types have lots of differences, the ENTJ – ENFP match is in theory close to ideal . In this article I will try to explain why. ENTJs often have trouble connecting with people on an emotional level because they are not naturally in tune with other people’s feelings. They are too independent to get tied up into anyone’s emotional games. There aren’t many people ENTJs will completely open up to but ENFPs are one of the types that have the best chance of bringing the ENTJ out of its emotional shell. How do they do it? Many ENFPs believe they can do anything they set their mind to but for the purpose of this article let’s try to view it through MBTI theory and cognitive processes. This part might be a little boring or complicated but bare with me. ENTJs and ENFPs are both intuitive personalities and share the same judging functions: extroverted thinking (Te) and introverted feeling (Fi) - (ENTJ: Te Ni Se Fi , ENFP: Ne Fi Te Si). Even though th

INTJ + ENTJ relationships, compatibility, dating

As friends, coworkers or even lovers ENTJs and INTJs generally get along very well. Not only that, but this type of MBTI match is one of the most ideal. Why is this match one of the most ideal? When it comes to compatibility of MBTI types, there are lots of contradictory theories out there and each of them claims to have found the right formula. Some personality theorists say that opposites attract, some say similarities attract, others have a totally different approach. However, the most common view is that couples are more likely to have similar preferences than opposite preferences. Those couples are also less likely to have problems in the relationship. This assertion is made in many published references (Carlson & Williams, 1984; Myers & McCaulley, 1985; Myers & Myers 1980; Sherman, 1981). The most important similarity is the N/S dichotomy. N types generally understand each other better than they understand S types, and vice versa. This is also how David

INFJ + ENTJ compatibility, relationships, dating

Even though it’s not an absolutely ideal matchup, the ENTJ – INFJ mix has a lot of potential. INFJ personality types are usually a bit more rational and logical than other feeling types (especially SF types) and that is a quality ENTJs are sure to admire. However, INFJs are also quite sensitive to criticism and conflict, which the ENTJ sees as a normal part of life, so obviously some adjustments will have to be made in order for this relationship to work. As friends... ENTJ – INFJ friendships usually function well. INFJs generally admire the ENTJs straightforwardness, intelligence and responsibility. In the relationship the INFJ takes on a role of an advisor for the ENTJ, providing thoughtful counsel when it’s needed. One possible stumbling block though is that ENTJs will not always be open to being influenced by the INFJ because they generally try to minimize the effect of emotions on their decision making process. Nonetheless, if the ENTJ learns to bite the tongue and avoid unn
