    Overbearing parents?

    This may be a completely isolated instance, but two of my best friends are ENTJ (each actually took the test) and one common thing about both of them that none of my other friends have experienced is that they each have absurdly overbearing mothers. Both of my friends are very smart, funny, and interesting but I feel like each of them are being held back by overbearing mothers who still try to make decisions for them. One has cut loose to a degree but the other's mom still sometimes keeps tabs on him as if he were 12. (We are freshmen in college)

    Wondering if having overbearing parents could lead to the development of ENTJ personality or if this is just an isolated instance.

    Thats an interesting point, because one of my friends who is again ENTJ had very overbearing parents...

    My mother is overbearing. She even asked if I was still a virgin 2 years back. Seriously, what the fuck?

    The one's mom is extreme. She still checks his college homework, doesn't allow him to go outside if he doesn't have his work done, and calls him constantly to see where he is whenever we are out with him. Also, she covertly demeans or infantalizes others when we are over my friend's house (but my friends and I can see right through that and none of us can stand her in reality). She also got our friend on ADHD meds even though he probably doesn't need them and says things like "he has a reading disability" even though he clearly just isn't a good reader or just doesn't like it (which isn't anything to be embarassed about especially because he actually is really smart).

    My other friend's mom isn't as bad but she's pushing him to become a doctor even though I think if he were to go into something like film, computer programming, or media he would be more successful at it and enjoy it more. (he is more knowledgable in those fields than anyone else I know.)

    My mother is overbearing. >_> InTAHresting.......... She continues to try to dictate my life goals. We agree on one thing--- To be successful. I one day negotiated that the definition of success and the means I reach it will be now dictated by me. HAHAHA It had to be done, but of course this meant being cut off from any financial support. (I has been a hard road u_u)

    My momz is overbearing but she learned to leave me alone, I was never afraid to get into it with her. My pops isn't overbearing at all, very laid back.

    My mother died when I was very small, so I could not say for certain. My father was an ESTP with ENTJ leanings, because he had to adapt to raise six children by himself. As a result he was extremely controlling, but I hold no resentment toward him for that. Try to raise four "P" children and one rebellious, cantankerous ENTJ; I think anyone would become controlling just to keep an eye on them all. Even when I was attending university it was always: where are you going, what are you doing, why are you doing this, this is how it should be done, all of that. For the most part it never bothered me. I was definitely an ENTJ since birth. Now as I get older it seems to apply less.

    My mother was so overbearing - if she didn't get her way, she'd pout and whine like a little girl. I got sick of her at 18 and permanently disowned her.

    But I'm ENFJ. It might contribute to an ExxJ personality in general.

    I do notice that all the INFx people I know had really open-minded parents. My observation, and I can see how that can be.

    Nope. Not one bit.
    Half my life, I felt like I was the parent.

    Not at all were my parents ever overbearing, and they were always supportive in whatever I wished to pursue. they allowed me to move to Canada to pursue performing arts education when I was 13, and it's been great 11 years so far. They were more of mentors for me all my life.

    We, nonetheless, are very close as a family & help each other in countless ways, yet mutually respecting utmost level of privacy.

    Dad's ENTJ, mom's INFJ. I cannot imagine having better parents.
