Which Myers-Briggs Personality Type Are You?

Sometimes it is important to take an inventory of who you are, so when somebody asks you in a job interview “Tell me about yourself” you have a solid answer. Why people are not satisfied with “I am truly fantastic and an honor to work with!” as an answer is beyond me!

According to Myers-Briggs Personality Test, I am ENTJ (Extroversion iNtuition Thinking Judgment).

ENTJs are among the rarest of types, accounting for approximately 2–5% of males formally tested, and 1-3% of females, and is the personality type most often associated with the alpha animals in ethology.

After consulting several sources, I’ve complied a quick list of traits that are most applicable to me. Here is what I’ve got:

  • Natural leaders
  • Action-oriented conceptualists
  • Take big picture view and  long-term strategy
  • Unusually influential and organized
  • Skilled in persuasion
  • Rational
  • In every situation, try to get from A to Z in the shortest amount of time and effort
  • Have a lack of patience for those who don’t grasp information/concepts as fast as they do
  • Friendly and outgoing with lots of energy and enthusiasm
  • Very decisive
  • Love a robust debate
  • Do not like anybody or anything preventing progress

Strengths

  • Like to take lead on things
  • Verbalize thinking/feelings
  • Love challenges
  • Super-organizers
  • Succeed in performance-driven environments

Weaknesses

  • Overly direct
  • Tact and diplomacy
  • Might appear to steamroll others
  • Might appear confrontational
  • Become frustrated with being slowed-down
  • Have high standards for themselves and others
  • Have lack of patience for stupidity

All these things are true, and you can learn more about ENTJ type here.
