I won't bend my behavior based on what's accepted. I would usually not find myself In a situation where the accepted behavior does not match my own.My ENTJ and I went to a local burlesque event. Not sure how many of you have been to one, but the general protocol encourages audience members to hoot, holler, wolf whistle etc when the performers behave in a provocative manner.
I have spoken with many of the performers (they are all local girls). They all concur that the more noise the audience makes, the better they feel about their performance.
My partner knows all this, but he feels that it is fundamentally wrong to vocalise his appreciation in this way (too close to disrespectful behaviour in his opinion). I respect him for his decision and admire him for sticking to his principles as he makes no demands on me to conform to his standard. In fact, he seems quite amused by my cheers and whoops. He says this is because it is so far removed from my usual behaviour.
It got me wondering whether this is standard ENTJ behaviour or if it comes down to the individual's need to conform to their own standards.
What's your take on this?
Would you join in with the behaviour, knowing that it is appreciated?
Or does it strike you as fundamentally disrespectful?
My way of bending is respecting others doing their own thing however I have no reason to conform regardless of what's accepted.
If i am only comfortable driving 70 mph but find myself on the autobahn I would continue to drive 70mph. It works both ways, in all honesty I am comfortable driving speeds above the limit and therefore will do so.
I have my own morals and rules and I stick to them religiously. I don't particularly care for what's accepted be it a line beneath or above my own.
