Illustrations of Type – ENTJ

Illustrations of Type – ENTJ

By Donna Dunning

In my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction -“Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from an ENTJ group.

The use of words with corresponding descriptive phrases and icons provides a clever way to look at the organized, competent, action oriented, approach often used by those who have these preferences.

People with ENTJ (and ESTJ) share a dominant function of Extraverted Thinking (Te). During this exercise they generally provide a concise description of their preferences.

Notice the large right-pointing arrow indicating forward motion. Results are emphasized as well as logical decisions. The crossed out steps (1, 2, 3, 4) show their interest in approaching tasks in a more global than sequential manner.

This is the sixth ENTJ poster in the Illustrations of Type series. You may find it interesting to look at the other ENTJ Illustrations.

If you are interested in seeing how people with different type preferences complete this exercise, check out the Illustrations of Type series.
