Better known as the commander type, an ENTJ personality type loves a free hand to create and is motivated by face-paced work environments. Their core traits are extroverted, intuition, thinking and judging, and this combination makes for great leaders; also, they are known as the commander.
The commander has a way with their word, the ability to persuade and charm a crowd. No matter what situation they find themselves in, their strategic thinking, combined with their analytical thinking and confidence, will make them come out of it triumphantly!
In recent times, Kamala Harris is a great example of a famous ENTJ personality type. She had her mind fixated on her goals, stuck through the course, even in the face of multiple obstacles and emerged a winner. Her persuasiveness and leadership qualities are nothing short of exemplary. Her strong will to fight the battles in this male-dominated industry is an example for the world to see!
Let’s have a look at some of the ideal career choices for an ENTJ personality type:
Financial/Business Analyst: The role of a successful financial analyst requires someone with a great deal of importance for detail and the ability to strategize and plan for corporations and companies. There couldn’t be a better fit other than an ENTJ for this kind of career option.
Sales manager: As ENTJ’s persuasiveness and charm are unmatchable, what better than a sales manager role for a personality type who has the power to convince!
Surgeon: The level of energy an ENTJ brings to the table is immense! Being a surgeon requires long years and hours of study and, once qualified, could mean hours at a stretch in an operation theatre. Hence, one of the many attributes that a commander type has matched the requirements of this profession.
Lawyer: The kind of detailed analysis, thorough research and persuasive skills needed for being a lawyer, are all core strengths of an ENTJ personality type. I would imagine a lot of ENTJs opt for law as a part of their career progression.
Entrepreneur: An ENTJ is known as a commander for nothing! They have a knack for being able to carry on the role of a leader with great confidence. They are great planners, are extremely determined, have exceptional analytical skills and leadership quality, and all of this screams – Entrepreneur!
Actor: With their creative streak, unmatched charisma, the ability to pull a crowd and extroverted behavioral traits, for an ENTJ personality type, to be a part of a theatre or film/TV industry, I would imagine could be a natural calling.
Architect: To have a successful career as an architect, one needs to be fluent with planning, have great foresight, excellent strategic skills and a keen eye for detail. All these personality traits are almost synonymous with an ENTJ personality type. So we can safely say that they would make excellent landscape architects.
These are a few options for you, but it is always better to know your strengths and weaknesses as an ENTJ personality type before opting for any career/profession from the above list.
