    What happens when an ENTJ gets betrayed?

    I ask this question because I was askedthis question today. And all I could really say is "I close off."

    But something else really does happen--- I begin to use that betrayal as confirmation for me to not trust others easily and to keep my fortress strong. I don't hold any grudges on the person but I begin to see how it was I who allowed this person to affect me in such a way that I have to close off.

    So me in particular or some sort of MBTI character traits we share at varying degrees?

    Betrayal is the deadliest sin in my book and I dont take it lightly. I usually plan a counter attack, as a means of venting. From then on, I too, am guarded and very untrustworthy of people.

    I tend not to fully rely on people to begin with, meaning betrayal, while it may cause damage, such damage will be mostly emotional. But yeah, I absolutely hate cowards, I can't think of a single type who doesn't in their own way.

    I seek vengeance.

    After I cool down and realize that revenge is not possible or worth my time, I just distrust them for the rest of my life and maybe will go on a rant or two whenever its brought up again.

    Yes, vengeance. Then at one point I'd decide that it's not worth it/ they suffered enough/ I'm bored and move on. Never to trust or think much of them ever again. Betrayal is like -- I read someone said that ENTJs continuously try to understand/ grade the value of the people they're dealing with, betrayal would be the stamp to mark them for waste disposal/ paper shredder, so to speak. They would no longer be counted, thrown away.

    I would close off for awhile as well, maybe nothing outwardly apparent, but it would add another stone (or a layer) to my walls.

    Emotional betrayal on a personal level = Vengeance and eternal distrust towards the person, plus a small increase of my general misanthropy for a few months or so. Past that, done is done and there's no point in grieving over it.

    I try to move on with my own life because usually a person who betrays me is headed down a long, dark road to eventual destruction... so I let them do that themselves. It's really satisfying to see someone destroy their own life after they try to destroy yours.

    But my favorite things, as I may have said somewhere before, are constructive criticism and revenge. So sooner or later they'll hear from me.

    So fucking true. Been there, and done that. When they wallow in their own misery a few years later, dirt poor and depressed, it's time to bring forth the popcorn and the party hats. Hah.

    Being happy is the sweetest revenge. ^^ And more often than not, it's cause for celebration when I finally realize that the sentimental part of me is foolish and I'm better off without them. After all, how can I take over the world with someone whose real name is Mr Ball N. Chain ruining my fun?

    But often my sentimental streak is strong, and rationality is a struggle when you have *gasp* FEELINGS.

    People who betray others are usually insecure, have a low self esteem, and basically have nothing going for them including a conscious . Thats why they need to use people. It also provides the perfect window for a counter attack. But alas common sense kicks in, and I realize that the person will eventually implode; the flesh eating bacteria will get the best of them. And that launching a counter attack is a waste of resources and energy.
