    Anyone else on the ENTJ/ENTP Border Land?

    Every time I've taken the personality inventory, depending on my mood I either test as an ENTJ or an ENTP. Each time, my preference for Judging over Perceiving, and vice versa, is small... like 1-5%. When I read the description of either, I have this "Aha! That's me!" moment. There are things that I really relate to about both, and neither one rings more true than the other, and for me the judgement/perception dichotomy is really not very meaningful and the boundary between them is more fluid.

    There are things I relate to about both types. I debate for fun like an ENTP and have a perverse sense of humour, but I mostly don't try to intentionally make people feel uncomfortable (mostly...). But, I don't like to leave things to chance. I'm decisive like an ENTJ. But I'm not really very into business or networking, and while I always do have a plan, I'm not a pedantic planner. I mostly feel like I'm winging it, but competently winging it in a goal driven, ambitious, sometimes steam roller, type of way. Maybe I have the best of both worlds? The ability to plan ahead and keep my eye on the prize while being able to change course, adapt, and improvise when the situation calls for it?

    Dunno. Not asking anyone to solve it for me, but maybe there are some other ENTP/ENTJ border land dwellers who have some insight into what I'm talking about?

    Have you read Jung's theory of cognitive functions?? According to that, being a J/P border type is impossible as ENTP and ENTJ share no functions. If you have the time you should take this test.

    This is just a start, if you identify any of the functions here in your behavior you should Google them individually for more in-depth info.

    This. Just this.

    ENTJ's have Te, Ni, Se and Fi. ENTP's have Ne,Ti,Fe and Si.
    As you can clearly see they're world apart in terms of their cognitive functions.

    I assume that you're somewhat new to the theory. Don't buy into the stereotypes. Being a P type doesn't mean that you're unable to plan ahead. It's just that you don't prefer to do so in most situations you see as trivial.

    I'm an INTP and I'm very good at planning and executing my plans with surgical precision when I have to do so. When I first did the test I was also on the border of J/P.

    The way you described yourself kinda seems like ENTP to me. The best thing to do for now is do the cognitive test.

    Thanks all! That was interesting to take, and the test labeled me as a likely ENTP.

    You're right, I don't know a lot about the different cognitive functions. Any other great links to read, please share!

    At it's simplest:

    S: do you primarily look at new experiences on their own terms ("Se" for extraverted sensing) or by comparing them to your memories of similar experiences ("Si" for introverted sensing)

    N: do you primarily come up with new ideas by consciously bouncing from one possibility to the next (Ne) or by trusting subconscious hunches (Ni)?

    T: do you primarily try to organize the world around you in general as efficiently as possible (Te) or try to make logical sense of specific problems (Ti)?

    F: do primarily try to behave according to some community's - your family, your church, your friends, ... - standards of morality (Fe) or by developing your own personal sense of values (Fi)?

    You couldn't be on the border. You're a P in denial. It seems like you're a J because ENTPs are so driven.

    Every ENTP thinks they're an ENTJ. Every ENFP thinks they're an ENTP. We all want upgrades.

    I would take that test for sure, but reality tends to refute that "border type is impossible" idea. A lot of people are exactly on the border.

    I thought ENFPs were perfect...

    I believe type 3 ENTP seems quite similar to ENTJ.
