    Question about ENTJ's and Te

    Is it possible for an ENTJ to be successful at work, but completely bomb when it comes to family life? Would they fail at being able to strategize family affairs because they don't emphasize that as being more important than bringing bread to the table? It's debatable whether or not my husband is an ENTJ/INTJ, he is extremely successful but can sometimes be a little absent-minded when it comes to husband/father duties.

    Of course it's possible.
    Is it a tendency? I don't know
    Is it an excuse, no, there is no 'one' way to managing familys in my opinion, there should be a way that works even for people that think different.
    Am I an immature, unmarried person with no experience in this matter? Yes.

    from my own experience, I only actively organize and compete in things i care about. If I can't find a reason to care or at least way to make it interesting, I tend to do mediocre in whatever it is. For example, I've always done well in school but a few months I lost interest and only did the bare minimun outside of school. Now I've decided to be interested and care about it and I have to pull up like 4 B's in a month.

    My Dad (ENTJ) used to be the definition of this. As I was growing up, he was always very goal oriented and went after success; he also took fabulous care of his toys, but he was not nearly as involved when it came to his family. Every chance he could, he wanted to find a sitter and do fun things "without the kids". As a parent, I understand the importance of this, but it was a constant desire of his, it seemed. We did do a lot of things as a family, especially during the summer, but it was always on his terms. Those family events are still a tradition even now, but they are still always on his terms. He's a bit of a control freak :)

    As he has gotten older, he is far more loving and family oriented; however, his dreams have been reached. So, I like to think of it as age maturing him, but the truth is, he has already accomplished what he's wanted for himself and NOW he has the time to focus on family. I suppose late is better than never though :)

    As for my ENTJ Husband, he is not like this...I think enneagram and the balance of the person has a lot to do with variations in personality, especially when it comes to things like this.

    Why wouldn't it be possible? Every type has blind spots. But if you do think he's an ENTJ then telling him out right how you feel is the best course of action.

    What do I know? But my first reaction is that in general, ENTJs are very willing/able to be very successful on the homefront. So I don't know if this issue is type-specific. There is something more specific going on in this situation is what I'm thinking ....

    This also depends highly on your expectations of him / possible cultural background or upbringing differences. Who's to say what husband/father duties are?

    This question is just really subjective, it frustrates me. Completely bomb when it comes to family life? Maybe he thinks he's doing a good job? IDK. Likely a communication issue between the two of you.

    Okay, take that same question and reverse everything. Do you think it's possible? I don't think it's a question of possibility rather than it is his willingness to do so.
