Myers Briggs Type Indicator ENTJ Executive Fieldmarshal

I just took the Myers Briggs Type Indicator assessment and discovered that I'm an ENTJ. This is how my score pairs panned out:

E=18 & I=3

S=7 & N=15

T=28 & F=0

J=24 & P=5

Without reading any further about what an ENTJ personality type is I can only assume that we do not have a problem exposing our scores or writing about our type, otherwise I wouldn't be doing this.

In reading what wikipedia has to say about this I discovered the Keirsey Temperaments which classifies me as a Fieldmarshal. The personality page calls me The Executive. I'm now starting to feel pretty full of myself and without reading what The Executive is all about I give it to my wife to read to me.

She slows down, reads extra loud, and repeats some of the passages:

"...they are not naturally tuned in to people's feelings, and more than likely don't believe that they should tailor their judgments in consideration for people's feelings. ENTJs, like many types, have difficulty seeing things from outside their own perspective. Unlike other types, ENTJs naturally have little patience with people who do not see things the same way as the ENTJ..."

"...sentiments are very powerful to the ENTJ, although they will likely hide it from general knowledge, believing the feelings to be a weakness. Because the world of feelings and values is not where the ENTJ naturally functions, they may sometimes make value judgments and hold onto submerged emotions which are ill-founded and inappropriate, and will cause them problems..."

I read that other ENTJs include Margaret Thatcher and Bill Gates.
