ENTP + ENTJ compatibility, relationships

It could be said that ENTJs and ENTPs live in different worlds. Although they may appear similar on the surface (witty, strong willed, independent), deep down they're quite different personalities, interested in different things. For starters, one obvious difference is that ENTPs have much less desire to lead people, as leading can become too big of a burden on their creativity and freedom. ENTPs are different from ENTJs because they want to be valued primarily for their uniqueness.


Reasons for conflict between the two personalities

The primary desire of a person with the ENTJ personality type is to be valued as someone who made useful contributions to the world by making it more efficient, resilient, honest, rich or just by getting big things done. Because extroverted thinking governs almost all their actions they may be accused of not being creative enough, or being too focused on the end results. Those accusations usually come from an ENTP whose life revolves around extroverted intuition, or just being unique. A typical ENTJ - ENTP conflict will revolve around statements like "you're just too stubborn" (to the ENTJ), or "you don't know how the real world works" (to the ENTP). An argument between an ENTP and an ENTJ is often a spectacular thing to watch and their flaws can only be obvious to an outsider.


Most conflict between these two personalities happens because ENTJs and ENTPs represent two different spheres of thinking which serve as a sort of critique towards each other. Examples of this can range from an ENTP artist criticizing an ENTJ government to a narrower example of an average ENTJ telling an ENTP that he doesn't have ADD, he's just bored and lazy. Before the end it should be noted that like all relationships this one is also dictated by many other factors besides personality type. Life circumstances can bring each of these types into a superior position and that obviously changes people's behavior.

Conclusion

ENTPs and ENTJs can be friends and they can be enemies, but one thing is for sure, they can provide each other with a very different way of looking at things, and that may prove valuable in life for both of them.

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
