I once read that: a lot of females are a "mistyped" ENTJ but I truly wonder if that's a misconception. I mean, why? They say "for a female it's not encouraged to be ENTJ", but it doesn't mean there's nobody out there right?
* ALL FEMALE ENTJs RAISE YOUR HAND IN THIS THREAD AND TELL ME ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCES * /commandstyle_ENTJ.
Personally I had the hardest time recognizing I had the traits of an ENTJ. Not because I wanted to conform to that stereotype or something, but simply rationalizing the thought "I was merely different". Now I've learned to see that I'm not merely a little different, but I'm sometimes displaying traits that are not understood in this society (because perhaps the female ENTJ maybe is an odd commodity).
Professionally I constantly envy my male counterparts. As a female ENTJ everything that comes out of my mouth seems to have violated someone. I learned that this is not *what* I say, but it's truly because people are a wee bit more sensitive when this comes from a woman. Directness and a lack of interest in others when it does not directly serve a purpose is sort of not understood here.
