ENTJ - Personal Relationship

The Reformers


ENTJs’ homes are very organized and run efficiently. They always take their parenting role very seriously, and constantly put their child’s needs before their own. They expect their children’s respect, and to follow the house’s rules and expectations. ENTJ parents enjoy feeling completely in charge of situations, making it clear to their children what is expected of them. When their children do not obey, ENTJs have no problem reprimanding/punishing their children. Because ENTJs like being in charge, the teen years are usually the most difficult for ENTJ parents and their children. Particularly difficult children may rebel or lash out, and ENTJ parents may have a difficult time letting go. ENTJ parents must remind themselves that sometimes they need to sit back and let their children grow into becoming independent and responsible.

Although they like overseeing everything, ENTJ parents are still great at helping their children learn and develop. They look for ways to promote education and independent thinking in their children. They usually pass on their desire for success to their children, and children of ENTJs are rarely lazy!

Romantic Relationships

ENTJs make faithful and fun romantic partners. They take their romantic relationships very seriously, and take it upon themselves to ensure that the relationship is successful. ENTJs are constantly looking for ways they can strengthen and improve their relationship.

ENTJs are very aware of their partner’s feelings. They have a knack for sensing when their partner is feeling mad or sad, and they do their best to help their partner feel better. ENTJs are very warm and empathic toward their romantic partners.

Because ENTJs are very career-oriented, this can sometimes interfere with their romantic relationships. ENTJs need partners who support them fully, particularly in their careers. It is important that an ENTJ’s partner understands their drive and motivation. A partner who does not understand why an ENTJ spends so much time at the office will not last long.


ENTJs are energetic and outgoing people who are interested in learning as much as they can about their friends. They are great communicators, and love having long conversations to get to know others on a deeper level. They enjoy engaging in conversations that help them learn more about others and the world around them. ENTJs love stimulating, intellectual conversations, and are not afraid to challenge others in doing so.

ENTJs seek out friends who share their views and interests, and have little patience for others with different views and lifestyles. They are especially attracted to others who exude confidence and have a strong desire for knowledge like themselves. They may have a difficult time becoming friends with “P” (perceiving) personality types, who like to keep their options open and make decisions more slowly than ENTJs.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma.
