ENTJs and Decision Making

ENTJs and Decision Making

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningWe all have different ways of solving problems and making decisions. People with ENTJ preferences have their own distinct, strengths and challenges.



• Make a rapid logical analysis that considers many ideas and possibilities

• Take charge and push decisions through quickly

• Are comfortable deciding, acting, and then correcting if necessary so that immediate action can be taken

• Put energy into convincing others to see and accept their point of view

• Are willing to try new options as long as they seem reasonable and effective



• May rely on impartial analysis and not consider the implications or consequences for the individuals involved

• Prefer moving quickly. This can result in a need for unnecessary corrections or revisions to the decision later

• May not take time to gather data and hear the perspectives of others, seeing this as a delay rather than a valuable part of decision making


• More grounded in ideas than facts, people preferring ENTJ may decide to reinvent or revamp something that is already working adequately

• ENTJs may decide independently. This can result in a loss of cooperation, especially when others’ feel their needs are not heard

• ENTJs need to be aware that others require time to think things through and may be intimidated by pressure to decide right away
