Could you answer my other question, see *edit* xD
Financially? Maybe a bit. I earned that. Go out and earn your own. I tend to donate to causes, not individuals.
Where I admittedly am selfish is in my personal life. I don't answer my phone in the evenings or weekends. Right now, I'm with Hubby, that's likely way more important to me than whatever you've got going on right now. Leave me a message, I'll get back to you when it's convenient. I also don't accept social invitations out of politeness (social norms .... **shudders**) Have a good time at your scrapbooking party. Thank you, but I'll be somewhere else. My time is important to me.
Do you have any interesting "interview" questions you ask when you want to know a lot about someone - quickly?
I'm thinking about things like management style, how realistic, how open or assertive. if I'm dealing with an INTJ have they reached a point of delegating in ways that work for their company or is this still a rough spot for them? If I'm working with a woman, does she have issues or awkwardness with how she handles authority. Am I dealing with someone who is more harsh inside than how they sound or the other way around. Am I dealing with people who wing it and then adjust, or strict SJ-ish guidelines. Am I dealing with someone who does what they do mostly for security and covering their ass. What is this persons ideal client? How much do they want employees to seem like they have the same values in a gusshy (or parrot) sense . . . . . . things like that.
I'm not trying to make this emotional - but it may seem overly Ti to ENTJ's
I think the bottom line is that my best growth opportunity might not be where the best security is offered, but I can't afford to be too care-free either. So I want to asses competence and corporate culture of smaller less proven organizations, or companies ready to make major changes. Research will be part of it but face to face mixers will likely be involved too.

If you walk into the room and feel like you got punched in the face by awesome, congrats, you've met an ENTJ.
Actually though, most ENTJs are easily recognizable just because of the sheer force of our personality. As we grow older we learn to tone it down, but we're still pretty easy to spot- if we're somewhere we're comfortable and think there's value to engaging, we're loud, often the center of attention, and intense. We bring a lot of energy, but we don't have the flightiness of the EPs.
