    • ENTJ male/female ratio

      I know that ENTJs is often perceived to be more masculine, but are there actually more male ENTJs than females, or do the female ENTJs just conform themselves more so it is not obvious? Any MBTI pros out there?

    • ENTJ male/female ratio

      I actually have a few ENTJ girlfriends. I don't have the statistics, but I'm willing to bet the ratio is actually pretty similar. My ENTJ friends hide it really well, they may be confused as ESTP at times. Go figure.

      According to various online sources, there are about twice as many male ENTJs as females. I really question the accuracy of these stats though, as I know quite a few women ENTJs. I agree with kstolt in that women ENTJs are more reluctant be be "ENTJish". Maybe they just overendorse certain traits on personality tests and that is why the statistics are off?

      ENTJ male/female ratio

      I agree with the deleted member. Saw this when reading some of the books on MBTI - might it have been "Gifts Differing"? That or "Please Understand Me 2". Anyway, female ENTJs are as rare as hen's teeth. ENTJ is the rarest type for a female. Hillary Clinton is said to be one, and she's also known to be rather abrasive, off camera. I can see where a lot of men would be turned off by the sheer personality power of a strong ENTJ woman. Me? I'd find it attractive, actually.

      But back to the point, I think there are either 2 or 3 ENTJ males for every ENTJ female. And so the type is quite rare. ENTJs (regardless of gender) are said to be ~2.1% of the US population - making it the 2nd rarest MBTI type overall. The rarest is, of course, INFJ at ~1.8% - most of whom are females.

      ENTJ male/female ratio

      I've found many ENTJ women in my life. They're difficult to distinguish without the test. Probably the weight of society dampens their personality traits, although exceptions do exist and I've met them too.
