Why? Well the description on his paperwork rang very true of my personality "Frank, decisive, assume leadership readily. Quickly see illogical and inefficient procedures and policies, develop and implement comprehensive systems to solve organizational problems. Enjoy long-term planning and goal setting. Usually well informed, well read, enjoy expanding their knowledge and passing it on to others. Forceful in presenting their ideas"
I had one thought that pinned me here which was my profile started with "Frank, decisive..etc" but the some of the others started with "Outgoing.." (ESFP) or "Warmhearted.."(ESFJ) or "Warm, empathetic" (ESFJ) but the real question is why did I want my description to sound like that? My husband had a good theory (this is why we get along, we are able to talk about abstract concepts and invent theories to solve it for hours on end). He said that those characterisitcs that I longed for are probably accepted and expected in woman. There was also statistics at play here as only 0.9% percent of the Adult Female population in the U.S is represented by the ENTJ while 19.4% is presented by ISFJ. My type is the second least common in women after INTJ (my husband's personality type!).
This made a lot of sense to me. I never had too many female friends growing up and I always thought I could be more ...gentle. Moreover, I find myself attracted to other personalities like me without even knowing it! My latest addition is Penelope's blog and recently found out that she is of the same type too.
Going back to my description above. The strange thing is that it describes exactly what I do for a job right now - and research shows that ENTJs get on smashingly well with INTJ/INTP - does this mean that my life is perfectly matched and therefore I must be the happiest person in the world right now? Statistically speaking apparently, I should be. This page would show that ENTJ/INTJs form the type that is more educated, with the highest income and generally married!
If only for the moment, I am going to be pleased with the generalisation and the broad statistics.
