Who Am I ?

A few of my fellow bloggers are taking the personality test and posting their results. I decided to join the party. I am going to list my results and then their print out of what "makes me tick". I will then highlight and share some of the points that I think really reflect me and cause people to either love me or not want to be around me ....

Here is the quick summary ...


ENTJs are strategic, organized and possess natural leadership qualities. They are master coordinators that can effectively give direction to groups. They are able to understand complicated organizational situations and quick to develop intelligent solutions. ENTJs are outspoken and will not hesitate to speak of their plans for improvement. They are decisive and value knowledge, efficiency and competence.

My Take on the Summary

I think this sums me up pretty well. I like to organize, plan and develop a vision and make thoste strategies come to light. Even though I do not "speak" much; I will not hesitate to speak regarding plans for improvement.

Statements that Ring True

Here are some statements in the reading that ring true .. the good, the bad and the ugly ...

1. The ENTJ needs to consciously work on recognizing the value of other people's opinions, as well as the value of being sensitive towards people's feelings.

2. ENTJs are very career-focused, and fit into the corporate world quite naturally. They are constantly scanning their environment for potential problems which they can turn into solutions. They generally see things from a long-range perspective, and are usually successful at identifying plans to turn problems around - especially problems of a corporate nature.

3. Although ENTJs are not naturally tuned into other people's feelings, these individuals frequently have very strong sentimental streaks. Often these sentiments are very powerful to the ENTJ, although they will likely hide it from general knowledge, believing the feelings to be a weakness.

4. They especially respect people who are able to stand up to the ENTJ, and argue persuasively for their point of view. There aren't too many people who will do so. Even the most confident individuals may experience moments of self-doubt when debating a point with an ENTJ.

I put the last sentence in italics for my wife.
