As an ENTJ, I see them as potentially the best partner in crime. They’re competent, see things the way we do, and can be relied on to execute.
On the other hand, it really depends on the individual INTJ. If they’re not very balanced and are immature, it can also be quite an unpleasant experience—either too arrogant, rude, or stubborn, which wouldn’t go well with an ENTJ that is similar in this regard.
As far as romance and relationships, it’s a pairing we recommend on Boo.
From the ENTJ perspective, you’re a master of efficiency; formidable, confident, and a force to be reckoned with. You’re at your best at the forefront, taking on life’s challenges head on and moving the world forward. But at your worst, you can be stubborn, intolerant, impatient, and out of touch with your feelings. You’ll want someone who sees the world as you do and loves you for your best, but also understands and forgives you at your worst, and would have it no other way.
INTJs are strategic and intuitive problem solvers. They’re confident, independent, decisive, capable, and thorough planners. But at their worst, they can be arrogant, judgmental, stubborn, and overly analytical.
- What You’ll Love: You’ll love that you can seemingly talk to them for hours on end about anything and be so alike in values. You’ll do most of the talking of course and you’ll love that they are happy to listen. You care about efficiency, you can count on them to ensure that shit gets handled, well. You’ll be their social butterfly they’ll be your rock. Because they tend to shy away from the spotlight, they’re happy to be the sidekick and support you in your grand endeavors, if they think you’re capable.
- How They’re Different: They differ from INFPs in that they typically think of things from a more logical standpoint, choosing logic and reasoning over feelings, not that they don’t have feelings, it’s that sometimes, like yourself, they may neglect this part of the equation. They differ from INTPs in that they also like to be in control, from making decisions, planning their lives, being organized, etc.
- Potential Problems: Like you, they can sometimes be stubborn, and because they also believe in their opinions strongly, you may sometimes fight for control or authority, and will need to compromise and let the other person steer the wheel sometimes for the relationship to work.
