This is a discussion on newcomer to dating ENTJ man Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 10 of Add Thread to del. I have always dated "F"'s so this is new for me. I'm just curious as to what ENTJ males are like in relationships. It's not like I'm going to change who I am but I really like understanding other types more.
We INTJ's need that: Based upon your above comments though, his saying that is not at all the norm for ENTJ guy so I needn't think that this is "typical". That actually makes me sigh a sigh of relief. Debo37 thanked this post. I am an ENTJ male. I feel that I have my share of relationship problems. Inherently we are not very emotional people and have a hard time understanding why someone is struggling with an issue. We are very dissmissive when it comes to this kind of feeling because we don't attach ourselves to people well so its very easy for us to not be bothered with them or what they do.
In addition to this we are not very trusting people probably why we like to lead and be in control and this obviously isnt the best dynamic for a relationship.
Entj dating tips
All of this being said we can make very loyal partners, we pride ourselves on our accomplishments including our relationships. If you find an ENTJ that can recognize that a relationship is a give and take dynamic and not a business transaction and is willing to listen and change when necessary then I feel it will be just fine.
Laguna , RuthBoaz and Enfpleasantly thanked this post. My 1 tip would be, don't break his trust. Trust is the key to love; without it, only fear exists. There is no room for love when fear and insecurity run the show.
Break an ENTJ's trust, and it will be next to impossible to gain it back. Respect and loyalty are probably the best ways to show him love, but at the same time, physical affection is something he NEEDS. He also has a very high sex drive and likes to stay as exciting as possible. He likes to feel wanted and desired by me. He wants me to admire him and think highly of him He wants me to understand just how much he loves me because he can show me the level of trust and care he does.
Although very good at coming up with their own solutions and ideas, ENTJ is also genuinely happy to listen to the ideas of others and encourages those around them to be as energetic and passionate as he or she is.
This kind of attitude can be very inspirational, especially in a romantic relationship. ENTJ is a planner and is very good about mapping long-term goals for the future. Their gift of gab and alluring personality would make it easy for a potential partner to find out whether this individual intends to head down the same life path as they. ENTJ does have a less-dominant intuitive nature that can pick up on the feelings and motives of others, and while they may seem uncaring about the feelings of others, they often harbor strong feelings of affection and tenderness towards those they care about.
ENTJ can even be sentimental, although this usually comes out in sporadic bursts rather than a continuous stream of romanticism.
For ENTJ, relationships are something to be taken seriously. This smooth extravert with an underlying intuitive nature will have no problem sharing ideas, goals, and certain personal aspects in the very early stage of dating.
The direct nature of ENTJ can be very refreshing in a relationship, especially for an introverted personality. ENTJs crave growth and forward movement which is why these two aspects must be present in a long term romantic relationship. This kind of growth is usually done in a very positive manner.Dating & ENTJ's: The #1 tip for a successful date
ENTJs are enthusiastic and imaginative, which means that they are usually game for anything. They will likely take the lead with their partner and find all sorts of creative and exciting new experiences to share as a couple. Their leadership instincts can be both good and bad for a relationship. Even with effort, the ENTJ may have problems being aware of other's emotional needs, and they most likely won't understand those needs even if they are aware of them.
ENTJs approach conflict as an opportunity for growth and learning. This is a very healthy outlook in general, but may be a problem in a close relationship with a Feeling type.
Individuals with the Feeling preference generally detest conflict and criticism, and avoid it as one would avoid a deadly snake. Otherwise, ENTJs will probably have the most successful intimate relationships with types which prefer the Thinking process naturally, or who are not extremely strong on the Feeling preference. In general, the ENTJ has a lot to offer to their intimate relationships.
They're dedicated and enthusiastic, and willing to put forth a lot of effort to make things work out.
They take on responsibility and accountability, and expect to be in charge. Their relationship will be one based on mutual respect, constant growth and development.
How did we arrive at this? Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable. They consider the task of passing on their values and goals to their children as an objective fact - it is something which will be done. They consider it their responsibility to make sure that their child is constantly developing and learning in the most optimal way.
The ENTJ parent is usually rather strict, and has very high expectations of their children. As a parent, the ENTJ continuously promotes learning and independent thinking. They pass on their love of knowledge to their children, and challenge them at every turn to thoroughly understand their positions and perspectives.
They expect that their children will follow their lead. The ENTJ is in charge - there can be no doubt about that. They expect their children to honor their parents, and to follow the rules and procedures which are set forth for the household. There is little room for error in those expectations, and the ENTJ will be a harsh parental authoritarian when the rules are broken. During the teen years, we are likely to see a child rebel from their relationship with the ENTJ.
Although this situation is common with almost all of the types, it is especially true for parents who are Extraverted Judging types. Children growing into adults do not want to be controlled, and adults who are used to controlling their children have a difficult time letting go. The ENTJ parent would be wise to "loosen up" their hold a bit, as long as they can do so without compromising what they feel to be right.
ENTJs who have not given themselves introspective time to develop the feeling side of their nature frequently develop harsh, aggressive tendancies.
