Personality Type

If you ever did any personality testing, below is some information about me. Such information is frequently used  for recruitment purposes, to further analyze a candidate’s persona. I believe it is more important as a tool for leadership to understand how to work with the individuals on their teams and what people are driven by. That allows organizations to build bench strength as well as retain and grow talent within the Company.

MBTI – Myers Briggs Profile

ENTJ, Extraverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging - are among the rarest of types, accounting for ~2–5% of males formally tested, and ~1-3% of females.

They tend to be self-driven, motivating, energetic, assertive, confident, and competitive. They generally take a big-picture view and build a long-term strategy. They typically know what they want and may mobilize others to help them attain their goals. ENTJs are often sought out as leaders due to an innate ability to direct groups of people. Unusually influential and organized, they may sometimes judge others by their own tough standards, failing to take personal needs into account. (from Wikipedia)
