ENTJs at their best

People with ENTJ preferences tend to be highly ambitious. They’re often able to handle stressful situations with a calm, measured head and an analytical mind.

At their best, ENTJs are able to lead others to pragmatic decisions. Their clear-headed reasoning and quick decision-making means they’re likely to thrive in leadership or management roles.

Potential development areas for ENTJs

Natural decision makers, ENTJs are often focused on finding fast, precise solutions rather than hearing different sides or exploring the nuances of a situation. They may be prone to rigidity and single-mindedness, which could lead to conflict in a team or group.

If you’re looking to develop yourself, remind yourself to hear all sides and consider other solutions to a problem.

ENTJs are often most at ease in positions of power that allow them to make logical decisions quickly and efficiently. They may get upset if other people challenge their competence or question their decisions.
