Hey all, ENTJ here. Compared to most INTPs, i'm very extroverted, and most Meyers-Briggs tests place me as an extrovert. Although I'm a devout anarchist, I believe in order and the taming of the wild. I only believe in "taming of the wild" under specific circumstances, however. Firstly, all animals, human or not, should be given respect, and not forcibly bred to be submissive to the point where they will accept anyone to be masters over them. However, I do believe that, in an ideal society, the fabric of society is made up of voluntary BDSM-style dominance-submission relationships, forming a healthy hierarchy. The concept is similar to the social contract, but taken up a few notches. However, that's an ideal. In reality, good, responsible and loving masters are vanishingly rare. Most masters are douchebags who believe it's their right to be served. They either do not realize or don't care that submissives have reason to submit, because they want something from the dominant. Namely, they want to be better people. A dominant is supposed to push a submissive to become a better, stronger, more skillful and powerful person, to push the submissive to become more than what he or she was before signing a power exchange contract. Submissives are willing to make this a mutually-beneficial relationship, but it is not a one-way street.
How this relates to inter-type relationships is because the ideal match for ENTJs are INTPs, for several reasons. Typically, INTPs are psychologically self-contained. There is no real motivation for INTPs to come out of their shell and interact with others. When I'm in a more negative mood, I refer to INTPs as socially inert, like a rock. They have little experience with socialization, and have no motivation to change that. Some unhealthier INTPs have no motivation, period. They are unmotivated, and thus, do not improve as people, nor do they seek self-actualization. This self-actualization can be achieved by external motivation. That's where people like me come in.
As an ENTJ, I love to travel and see the world. I love organizing and pushing others for its own sake, as well as saving others from suicide, recruiting for good causes, giving my friends homes and livelihoods, and making those who choose to give me their loyalty lead better and more comfortable lives, making them stronger. As an ENTJ, I believe in order, but not order for its own sake, only valid, responsible order. As I am disillusioned with mainstream society, I'm an anarchist, and believe that order that is nonconsentual is true slavery, while BDSM-style order, being sane and consentual, is true and healthy order, the kind that gives rise of healthy and noble societies. If a society is worthy, it produces enough food, water, clothing, medicine and other physical supplies that it can spare them for those who choose not to participate in society themselves. The freedom to walk away is paramount. Without a real choice, society is slavery.
ENTJs are supposed to be a good match for INTPs, as are ENFJs. As you might have noticed, the ExxJ comes out as a strong dominance and will. Since me T is a more mild preference, you should notice some F elements.
What are your thoughts on the relationship between ENTJs and INTPs? What makes them so compatible? Is a more forceful and aggressive ENTJ healthy for the more unmotivated INTP? What do you think?
