I hate lying. I'm not good at it and it's a waste of my time and energy. Why hide when there doesn't need to be a reason to? If I do something, it's with conviction. I state my case to convince or persuade someone because it's a lot easier to get stuff done when someone has the same shared goal, than to lie and have the task of pulling strings to get people to do what you want them to.
I don't believe ENTJs are emotional manipulators or victim players. They're more often unashamed of their decisions and choices and I see them playing martyr and complaining about being burdened by the incompetence of others, than a passive victim with no control or handle on their situation.
