How Do ENTJ Personality Traits Influence A Relationship?

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. – Steve Jobs

1. They lose their cool when someone’s inefficient

ENTJs love efficiency so fiercely that even a hint of incompetency annoys them. If you are slow around an ENTJ, then prepare for their wrath. This is definitely one of the most unappealing qualities of the people who exhibit ENTJ personality traits.

2. These folks ooze out confidence

Since ENTJs are born leaders, it is, but natural, for them to be confident. They are usually the most popular people in the party, and are extroverts who can talk about anything under the sun with a sureness that might intimidate some.

3. These people find themselves in leadership roles even when they don’t want to be the person in charge.

Since the ENTJ can attract almost anyone, they are often approached to lead movements. They are good at convincing people of an idea, which makes them good orators. Their charisma and presence makes people want to follow them. An ENTJ can also be a very successful motivational speaker for obvious reasons.

4. They are stubborn at times

Arguing with an ENTJ can be tough considering how stubborn they are and how fiercely they protect something they believe in. They are also annoying sulks who believe, most of the times, that things should always go their way. ENTJs think that they are always right, and this trait of theirs can cause some serious relationship issues.

Now let’s see how all these traits affect an ENTJs love life.

The fact that an ENTJ has an outgoing personality is very attractive because people just love them, and we tend to love those who are loved by others; it is a human trait. So if you are a person who wants to be a part of a power couple, then dating an ENTJ is the right way forward. But if you tend to get over-possessive of your partner, then an ENTJ may not be the right match for you.

Another important factor when it comes to dating an ENTJ is how they ae hard to keep up with. They can seem a little intimidating because of their confidence and self-esteem. If you are someone who has a self-confidence issue, then an ENTJ could tear you down. If you are someone who is as aggressive as an ENTJ then, however, there should be no relationship issues.

An ENTJ is a very responsible partner, who considers the relationship’s health depends solely on them. They will tend to spend a lot of time and energy on making the partner happy. But since they are stubborn folks, they might even seem a little difficult to live with. You will need to constantly remind your ENTJ lover that a relationship is after all a partnership between two people.

How compatible are ENTJs with other personality types?

Kindred spirits

The personality types with which ENTJs are likely to share their interests, and have a similar approach toward life are,

  1. INTJ, The Mastermind
  2. ESTJ, The Supervisor
  3. ENTP, The Visionary

If you belong to any of the aforementioned personality traits, then you are likely to form a very good bond with an ENTJ because you both are very similar to each other.

Intriguing differences

The following personality traits have striking similarities with ENTJs; however, they have some key differences that make them seem intriguing and interesting:

  1. ISTJ, The Inspector
  2. INTP, The Architect
  3. ENFP, The Champion
  4. ENFJ, The Teacher

ENTJs are likely to get attracted to the aforementioned personality types. The relationship between ENTJs and the above will have a good balance of shared aims; the differences will challenge them to be more understanding and accommodating.

Potential Complements

ENTJs may not feel attracted immediately to the following personality types; however, if they give the friendship time, it could evolve into a relationship, and that too a strong one:

  1. ISTP, The Craftsman
  2. INFJ, The Cousellor
  3. ESTP, The Dynamo
  4. ESFJ, The Provider

When the ENTJs and the aforementioned spend more time with each other, they realize that they have more things in common, that too, important things. They will teach each other, inspire each other, and help each other grow.

Challenging Opposites

The personality types that have the greatest potential to have a clash with ENTJs are,

  1. INFP, The Healer
  2. ENTP, The Visionary
  3. ENFP, The Champion
  4. ENFJ, The Teacher

The aforementioned personality types have frequent conflicts with ENTJs, but this is not necessarily a bad thing; it can also mean a great opportunity for growth. ENTJs and the above have very different core values; they are motivated by different things. An ENTJ’s strength is the above mentioned personality types’ weakness, and vice-versa. Therefore, this is a chance for both the parties to learn from each other.

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
