ENTJ careers

It is in the world of careers that ENTJs' boldness and drive are truly at their best. No other personality type is better suited than ENTJs to be the respected leader of an organization or team, and no other personality type enjoys it quite so much. Combining their vision, intelligence and determination to push ideas through to completion no matter the obstacles, ENTJs are a force to be reckoned with.

We All Go Up, Or We All Go Down

In the world of business, the sometimes overbearing level of self-confidence that ENTJs (especially Assertive ones) too often mishandle in their personal relationships is transformed into an admirable authority, keeping people on track and getting things done. Naturally the best careers for people with the ENTJ personality type make the fullest use of these qualities, and many would describe executive positions and entrepreneurialism to be ideal lines of work - any position high enough that they can clearly see the horizon.

For ENTJs, failure is not an option - they conceive a vision of the future, formulate a strategy to achieve that vision, and execute each step with ruthless precision.

Structure and order are key, and if someone gets sloppy, or holds things back with incompetence, laziness or inefficiency, ENTJs will not hesitate to come down, hard. ENTJ personalities pursue their goals with singular vision, and have strict standards for themselves and others that are designed above all else to be effective. This makes ENTJs excellent corporate strategists, and their objectivity and clarity of thought make them respected lawyers and judges.

None of this could work if no one could understand what ENTJs were thinking, and they have the good fortune of being clear and concise communicators, especially in person, making business administration a comfortable fit - so long as their tasks don't stray too far into routine maintenance and upkeep. ENTJs also have a thirst for knowledge, and they aren't afraid to use a principle once they've grasped its underlying mechanisms. Combining this with their leadership makes ENTJs trying, but effective, university professors.

We Are Still In The Making

The only problem is, it takes time for ENTJs' skills to be recognized, and stagnating as low-level employees will have them bouncing off the walls and deeply unhappy. People with the ENTJ personality type crave leadership and responsibility, growth and opportunity, and genuinely enjoy managing others to get a job done. ENTJs are visionaries and leaders, not grunts or day-to-day administrators. Getting that to be recognized is not always easy, but ENTJs are probably up to the task.

I'm an ENTJ, too. Although I'm not too big a risk taker I work well with other personality types that like to develop new ideas. The "N" in ENTJ stands for "intuition", the only problem is whether ENTJs follow that "N" or whether the "thinking" "T" takes over. If an ENTJ achieves to balance his preferencies and manages to really engage with others he can suceed. He/she should never forget to stress/to focus on positive aspects others have and try to "read and understand other types"
Extroverted and analytical with intuitive perception.

I find they love being in charge and get inpatient quickly with people who don't mirror them.
