The ENTJ MBTI® Personality Type and Learning Styles

In Blogs, ENTJ, Learning Styles, MBTI by Geeta Aneja

Believe it or not, graduation is just the start of most peoples’ educational journey. In today’s fast-paced work environment, learning on-the-job is almost always part of the job. Some vocations, like teachers and nurses, have required continuing education. Others, like carpenters and mechanics have mentorship or apprenticeship programs. Whatever your situation is, discovering your Myers-Briggs® Personality Type (MBTI®) can help you leverage how you learn, so you can learn more, faster, and better.

For example, let’s take a look at the ENTJ—(Extraverted-Intuitive-Thinking-Judging) personality type. ENTJs are confident leaders. They work through problems by carefully analyzing them. They work towards resolving them systematically, one step at a time. ENTJs are result-oriented. Getting the job done and done right is more important to them than the details of how that goal is accomplished. For example, to an ENTJ salesperson, making the sale successfully is even more important than what strategies were used to be successful.

ENTJ Learning Styles

Learn all about MBTI® ENTJ Personality Types and their Learning Style tendencies.

If you are an ENTJ, you can leverage this motivation by seeking out structured learning environments, where you have specific tasks or projects to complete and where your performance is evaluated. This kind of environment should give you specific metrics for marking your progress and measuring your success. As an ENTJ, you may wish to ask your instructor or facilitator for a list of learning objectives, so you know what your goals are, as well as additional resources that might allow you to see how content is applicable to areas you are particularly interested in. If you find yourself losing focus or feel your motivation slipping away, try talking to your instructor or even setting up a study group where you can explore how the information you learn can be used to solve real-world problems and applications.

If you are an instructor and you have ENTJs in your classrooms or seminars, you can keep them engaged by encouraging friendly competition, for instance through debates or games, or even just by praising students who perform particularly well. You might also want to consider assigning longer-term projects, roleplays, and other kind of assignments or activities that are based on realistic scenarios, since ENTJs generally value application over theory. Be sure to balance individual and collaborative assignments as well, being that ENTJs need to process material individually as well as with their peers. As with so many things, the key to success is variety and balance.

Regardless of the specific assignments you give, or even whether you are an ENTJ yourself or are teaching them, keep in mind that direct, specific, and timely feedback matters. In order to improve their future performance, ENTJs need to know exactly what they are doing incorrectly, what they need to change, and why they need to change it.

Making a small effort to customize your learning experience to your learning style can make all the difference in remembering what you learn and applying it when it matters most. Your MBTI® is the secret of success.
