Remember how you reacted when you first took the MBTI® assessment?

Me neither. It was a while ago.

But someone who took it much more recently is Alex Shebar, a food/experiences blogger and current Head of Community at tastebase in New York City. Here’s what he said.

“I took the Myers-Briggs assessment and it was absolutely amazing. And I found out that I’m an—"

Woah, hang on there. Let’s not learn Alex’s type just yet. Let’s hear a little more first.

“ ….which means I’m a strong, commanding leader but need some flexibility. Creative, very outgoing … there’s actually some very good insights in there.”

And his MBTI type?

ENTJ.

Now, let’s use the MBTIonline type description to explore that personality type a little more and see where it relates and what Alex thinks of it.

MBTIonline description:

The ENTJ personality type is a competitive, highly motivated and focused person who sees just about everything by focusing on the bigger picture. ENTJs thrive by setting long-term goals and making highly analytical decisions, and they often do well in high-stress leadership roles.

ENTJ is described as a decisive strategist. It’s also one of the rarest personality types, found in just 2.3% of men and 1.5% of women. Words typically used to describe ENTJs include planned, logical, expressive, enthusiastic, critical, driven, confident, and problem-solvers.

ENTJs are also usually able to handle stressful times with a calm, measured approach. It’s one of the ENTJ strengths.

Now, we know that everyone is their own person within a type, and Alex’s ENTJ personality type won’t be exactly the same as someone else’s ENTJ. But the important thing is to get started and learn more about yourself and how you prefer going about things.

Referring to his MBTI experience, Alex said, “It's incredible. Learning about your MBTI personality type helps you understand why you do the things you do. So, if you ever went, "Why did I even do that?" then hey—there may be an answer.”

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Alex loves to hear from people. Go look him up.
