As long you can tell between '(genuinely) trying to be sensitive' and 'saying he's trying to be sensitive'. If he doesn't open up about his feelings much, change the question(s). Ask what he's going to do with the situation/what actions he plans to take next. Those are infinitely easier questions to answer and maybe most relevant for you, if you're still figuring out where he stands.We both try to be sensitive to one another; I try to communicate logically/rationally, he tries to be more sensitive to my feelings. But he doesn't open up about his so much. I was curious if this was just him or a general ENTJ thing! Now I know.
Were you quick to get hurt as a child? Was there someone that bullied you for being a crybaby? What made you not want to appear weak? When did you start to value Te and neglect Fi?
As a child? Not sure. Just always had this sort of "you can't break me" attitude.What made you not want to appear weak?
ENTJ/Type 8 two-year old. (my poor parents).It's not so much that an effort was made to neglect Fi. It just wasn't developed.When did you start to value Te and neglect Fi?
Seems like you're working here with some really weird hypothesis that ENTJs can't be born only manufactured.
I got the idea from my cousin. He said I made him ENTJ by bullying him when he showed weakness. He said I was his role model and because of my attitude he started to suppress his emotions (sadness, shame and anger) and worked on developing logic. We hang out during the summer for many years, I am 4 1/2 years older. I was always testing his breaking point, told him to stop being so hurt and irritated all the time, he got pissed off like why are you such a fucking dick all the time, wanted to kill me and then cried when he had no power over me, I think I never physically abused him, just bored and wanted someone to tease...
I understand why he was hurt, I would probably feel the same way, if someone I looked up to was trolling me. I joked about how therapists could point at me when he has problems accepting that people are emotionally attachment to him (his idea, idk).
We get along great. He is now becoming my role model, in a way. I'm not sure how, if my friends like my forceful Te though.
Anyways, appreciate the answers.
I'm wondering how many ENTJ's are Enneagram 8?
I'm an INTP 8, and can't seem to relate to many INTP's.
