As an ENTZ your desire is to lead. While other personality types may also be natural leaders, it has been said that an ENTZ cannot not lead. Your place is at the head of the crowd, marshaling everyone together and moving the group forward. You are rarely content to stand back quietly. Yet, on those occasions calling for you to follow you do so, as long as you know that doing so will bring you closer to your goal.
Living in a world of thoughts, you are keenly analytical. Analysis and objective criticism are second nature to you. As an ENTZ you often have a hard time understanding or appreciating appeals based on anything other than reasoning. You enjoy long-range planning and taking action. Your vision allows you to spot potential pitfalls far ahead, often beyond what is known and obvious. Your intellectual and curious mind thrives on new ideas, theories, and complex problems.
With their superior organisational skills ENTZs plan for all contingencies. The systematic style you use to map out the objectives of a project enables you to arrive at your goals on schedule. Your penchant for quick, decisive action often leaves others in the dust. Problems invigorate you. You excel in positions demanding innovative solutions.
ENTZs are quickly disillusioned and unhappy when stifled or overcontrolled. You have little patience with uncertainty, timidity, emotionalism, inefficiency, or confusion. Making tough-minded decisions and taking hard actions does not scare you.
ENTZs are comfortable with risk and unafraid of change to accomplish tasks. With such tenacity, work and home life easily intertwine. You are direct in your dealings with other people and you perceive as feedback what other personality types view as criticism. You tend to measure your own value by your accomplishments. But sometimes you set your personal standards for achievement impossibly high.
ENTZs tend to live in the future much more than the present. This also means that you tend to relate to people more on an “idea level” than on a personal one. The ENTZ is the creative intellect that boldly challenges accepted theory.
