    Relationship Questions

    ** Have a conflict with an ENTJ acquaintance, friend, relative, significant other, co-worker, or boss?

    ** Curious about whether or not your MBTI or Enneagram type is compatible with ENTJ?

    ** Hit a stumbling block in your relationship with your ENTJ girlfriend or boyfriend?

    ** Wondering what that ENTJ you just met thinks about relationships?

    ** Trying to figure out why your ENTJ isn't calling or has gone silent?

    ** Something else you'd like to talk about?

    Feel free to ask us anything about relationships with ENTJs that you are curious about or is troubling you.

    Here in the ENTJ forum, we get asked these types of questions quite a bit - so much so that we've dedicated this sticky to them.Please do not open a new thread in our main forum. If you start a new thread there, one of us will most likely redirect you here.

    We would prefer that you ask your relationship question here for two reasons:

    There is a lot of overlap in the types of questions that get asked. Having all the questions here in one thread makes it easier for people to read through it and find answers to their questions and dialogue with each other.

    Having multiple open threads on the same relationship topic clutters up our forum and makes it hard for us and others to find general topic discussions. Please keep in mind that as Te-doms, we dislike this sort of thing. Your cooperation is appreciated.

    We'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    Please post your relationship questions here

    What is your formula for balancing your work/student life with your personal life?

    Can you give us an insight into the inner workings of an ENTJ's mind and how an ENTJ makes their priorities?

    No formula. Just make sure everything is healthy by checking up on the people in each area, making sure everything is done, etc. It's more a feeling than something I plan.

    If you specify a little more what that means, sure.

    At times over the course of my career, I've had to work long hours. So sometimes, my time with my Hubby has been limited by that.

    What I've learned to do is think of my home as a sanctuary. The second I cross the threshold, everything but my focus on my relationship with my husband is left at the doorstep.

    Even if I've had a long, frustrating day, I don't talk about work, I don't bring work home with me. Traffic was a nightmare? It's over. I'm here now. Shake it off. I don't answer my phone in the evenings. Leave me a message. Whatever it is, it's not as important as my time with Hubby. I allow nothing to violate that sanctuary.

    I see more value in being completely focused on our relationship for a few hours in the evening than getting home early and spending half the evening venting about work. Once I'm through that door, it's Hubby time.
    I give our relationship 100% of my focus.

    Probably more an Ni/ hunch thing; I have a strategy; set the parameters in place to ensure successful execution of that strategy; then use Ni to spot- check see that things are going well. As necessary, Te kicks back in with contingencies as needed.

    What that looks like:

    My plan: have a partner for the obvious benefits a relationship brings (intimacy, share of entertainment bills, past time), have a good relationship with family (ie call home to check in once in a week), make sure personal and professional priorities are in place for efficacy reasons (ie pay bills/ make arrangements to squash debts, work out, eat clean and even pursuit of higher education) and make sure the career is solid and things at home are well.

    That's all I would argue, Te.

    Then along the way, get a feel for how those connections are going... How am I fostering each of those relationships? Do I sense any breakdowns? Does it 'feel' right? What clues are each of these players exuding to demonstrate how they perceive the state of the relationship?

    That's all, I would argue, Ni.

    What problems do you (especially the ladies) often face while dating? How do you deal with them?

    -do they stimulate my mind? (Big one)

    -am I attracted to them?

    -do they challenge me and satisfy me?

    Now for the less- immediate stuff:

    -trying to figure out if I see them fitting into my long term gameplan;

    -trying to figure out if they fit into my short term gameplan;

    -is what I want to take negotiable equal to what I'm willing to give;

    -is it fun;

    -is it feasible?

    Usually problems fall along the lines of the issues addressed in these questions. I am more than willing to work through them; I see them as challenges, until it's not worth my time or energy and I discover that it just isn't a good fit. Then I move on.

    The past 15 years or so, I've been mostly focused on my son, parents, and business...I think I'm ready to make time for someone. So I ask again...other than a male ENTJ what personality type works well with a female ENTJ in a long term romantic relationship?

    I went through 120-ish pages of the old ENTJ relationship and advice thread, and here are the types I found:
    INFP: 23
    INTP: 12
    ENFP: 9
    ENFJ: 6
    INFJ: 6
    INTJ: 4
    ENTP: 4
    ISTP: 2
    ISFP: 1
    ISTJ: 1
    ESFJ: 1

    Keep in mind, these are people usually asking for relationship advice, which means the relationship had some bumps. There are also certain personality types that are far more likely than others to ask for advice on a personality forum (the INFPs are everywhere on the ENTJ forum and INTP forum, for example).

    I'd just look for someone who keeps you interested and makes you happy- type doesn't really matter that much if they're healthy. I usually end up fond of INTPs, but I'm much younger than you so that might not happen as much as I get older. Remember, you're looking for an individual, not a type. Studying for that won't do you much good (believe me, I've tried. I was set on an INTJ until my INTP friend basically hit me in the face). "Just go with the flow" and all that.

    Something that I find interesting is that the married female ENTJs, or those in stable, long-term relationships here in the forum have introverted partners.
    (sorry if I forgot anyone)

    me: ISTJ
    stiletto: ISFP
    Elistra: INTP
    Tea Path: INTJ
    Duo: INTP

    All introverted. Anecdotal and small sample, but might be something to consider.
