People From Pluto - ENTJ

I know I've talked about The Rationals as an entire group before in a post or two.  I've made it a littler personal for me in one post, but I thought this would be a good place to really flesh out what it is to be a ENTJ.  Next to the INTJ, we're the second rarest personality trait out there.  We make up 2-4% of the population.  And to find that type in women?  Wow.  Chances are, you've not run into one of us before.

What spurred me to write this is my involvement in an online forum that brings we female ENTJs all over the world closer together.  Now, I know what you're saying, we're extroverts, we should like people.  Well, we do.  Thing is, since we're so rare, chances are there isn't much of a local meetup group.  In looking through the membership of this forum, of the 50 or so members, only three of them are from the US, the rest are from all parts of the world.  Chances are, we're never all going to be having tea together in person.  So, the internet gives us a chance to reinforce that we're not "broken" just that the world doesn't know what hit them when one of us marches into the room.  And you know, sometimes that can be a whole lot of fun. *Cue maniacal laughter*

My purpose here is to collect some resources for understanding the Rational personality with a heavy slant towards the ENTJ type.  There are many pages on the internet that have more or less the same copy when describing us.  I wanted to build a place for people to find a list of links that was a little more in depth in describing how we tick.  So, I will  admit, the first few attempts at this will probably be crude (not as in blue language, but unpolished) as it's a work in progress.

The following sites cover the Rational Temperament on a general level.  This means, all personality types that are iNtuitive and Thinking; ENTJ, INTJ, ENTP, and INTP.

The following sites cover how and ENTJ reacts under extreme stress.  Bear in mind, we're one of the most capable personalities to deal with nearly impossible amounts of the stuff.  But, if you know an ENTJ and you see  them going through these sorts of things, chances are, something major is bothering them.
