I didn't know ENTJs had such slandered reputations until I read this thread. My mother is an ENTJ (oh, happy Mother's Day!) and she's well-respected in our inner circle. True, she can be a taskmaster at times, but she's very softhearted and patient. She says that she used to be a cutthroat back in her school days, but that changed, apparently. :D (Even so, she ended up in only the top ten percent of her class. Lol) So I guess it depends on the individual. Not all ENTJs are jerks; my mother is living proof. Maybe they get softer with maturity.
