The Killer Whale – ENTJ

There are several personality types that like to work behind the scenes, humbly avoiding the spotlight whenever possible. The Killer Whale is not one of them. Well-known for their natural drive to lead, Killer Whales, as opposed to the similarly commanding but far more authoritarian Stags, derive their power from the force of their intellect, convincing their followers, in a not-so-subtle way, that they’re the smartest person in the room, and as such, to follow another would be folly.


Emma Watson

I started questioning gender-based assumptions a long time ago. When I was eight, I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays that we would put on for our parents — but the boys were not.

Among all the types, Killer Whales are one of the most exceptional students, exceeded only by their Smith siblings, the Spiders… Preorder The Power of Personality to learn more!

The Commander

Thomas Edison

The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.

– Thomas Edison

Their knack for recognizing strengths and weaknesses, while beneficial to their allies and followers, can make Killer Whales dangerous opponents… Preorder The Power of Personality to learn more!

The Dominator

Irene Adler

I would have you, right here, on this desk, until you begged for mercy… twice.

– Irene Adler, Sherlock

The forceful nature of the Killer Whale makes them just that: a force of nature… Preorder The Power of Personality to learn more!

The Cynical Pragmatist

No public man in these islands ever believes that the Bible means what it says: he is always convinced that it says what he means.

– George Bernard Shaw

Despite the occasional lapse into dictator mode, Killer Whales are usually capable of conferring power to others within the group… Preorder The Power of Personality to learn more!

    I am letting out a huge belly laugh. Usually I test as a INTJ/INTP (once I tested as a INFJ) but to be diagnosed as the Il Duce, an ENTJ, look me aback. I doubt that you can reliably diagnose a person in four rounds of word association. I suspect that one’s choice of words simply reflects one’s subconscious desires rather than one’s psychological processes and social interaction. Interestingly I test as an enneagram 8v7, which correlates precisely with these results. Moreover, the object of the Enneagram Test is to classify individuals in terms of psychological motivations. With 30 years of life experience under my belt, I can safely testify that I am an introvert but deep down their is obviously great reservoir of aggression and need for control in my psyche. Therefore, I recommend another four questions be added which provide individuals an opportunity to rate themselves according to the four MIB variables on a seven point scale: introversion/extroversion; intuition/sensation; feeling/thinking and judgement/perception to provide a more balanced analysis.

    • usually I test out as INTJ but this time I tested out as the Shark…I’m really surprised.

  • Why do the others love to be controlled by INTJs and ENTJs as much as they do, though?

    I thank you for boldly using the expression “control freaks” instead of the euphemisms everybody else dealing with MBTI typology opts for, but it’s to be admitted all the others love to be under these people’s direction :))

    All the others, save the INTPs and INFPs like me, so far as experience as showed me.
