ETNJ 8w7 here.Are ENTJ's supposed to have a façade of sorts? How do you understand/experience our "weakest function" (Fi) ?
I specially would like to know other ENTJ type 8 thoughts.
I think that because the brutal honesty we are gifted with is so rare misunderstood as "Being a big 'ol meany." many people project and assume that our honesty and confidence is a facade.
That has at least been my experience and it's lead to so many misunderstandings.
It has its downsides:
Being an ENTJ and an 8 I am a very stoic person ( outside the internet since words are all I have here) I can't tell you how many times my friends, dancing and jumping for joy have asked me "Aren't you excited!?" and I respond, arms crossed and completely expressionless "Yes. I'm very excited." On the inside I was in fact losing my shit with excitement.
Then every get's mad calls me no fun, or says " You don't have to be sarcastic all the time." and storms off. Once again, I' the big negative meany.
Pllaying cards with family. The get so intense and stressed out while I'm so relaxed they all think I'm stoned. ( never touched marijuana BTW) hell, I'll only be half-paying attention and driving them crazy with "Oh is it my turn?" and then beat them all. It pisses them off so much and they all think it's some sort o mind game. It really isn't. It's just how I am.
Why fix what isn't broken?
As for our weakest function, I don't understand it. I don't consider things I'm not good at. I suppose I should, but, eh.
