The Entrepreneur (Extroverted Thinking + Intuition)


The Entrepreneur is characterized by a drive to extract the most use, gain and information out of each situation. They are enterprising and influential in the area of their choosing. Their aim is to not waste time in vain and gather as much useful information as they can. That is why they are typically well-structured, well-organized, and well-informed on a wide range of topics; the scope of their knowledge is very wide, but only in-depth in those areas they have personal interest in.

The Entrepreneur makes use of their knowledge to create a better future for themselves and often others as well; this is how they can be quite innovative. They are adept at foreseeing possible pitfalls and evaluate risk and benefit accordingly. Even so, they are occasionally tempted to over-invest (their time, effort, and/or money) in whatever they deem to be a profitable or useful endeavor, which may occasionally lead them to spending more than a frugal person would find appropriate. Even so, the Entrepreneur rarely if at all struggles with debts, money or career problems for too long; it is common for the Entrepreneur to at least gain an Upper Middle Class status in life, and the richest people on the planet are overwhelmingly of this type.

The Entrepreneur’s ambition, knowledge, and competence often garner them respect from others, though in their youth they may be overlooked amongst more ”hands-on“ individuals. Some young Entrepreneurs feel the need to ”prove themselves“ – then they may engage in aggressive and impulsive behaviour. As they grow older, they typically develop a fondness for status symbols, like impressive sports cars, expensive watches and suits, and similar. They value good taste in clothing and try to look presentable, though sometimes their efforts fall short in this area and they look slightly worse than they had planned or are aware of. Their clothing tends to be unobtrusive in colours and be of a classic, neutral or even sporty style. In general, the Entrepreneur usually owns at least one favourite suit and some individuals like to be slightly over-dressed from time to time for effect.

The Entrepreneur has the ability to come across as a light-hearted and warm individual for limited periods of time. Their emotionality is mainly a way to make human interactions more smooth and to be seen as a well-adapted and sociable individual. Once respect and attention have been established, the Entrepreneur moves on to a matter-of-fact style of communication, focusing on communicating what they know and would like to implement in the future.

The Entrepreneur can have troubles with being a workaholic, unable to relax, smell the roses, and take care of their health. In their mind, there is always something better to do than to worry about those matters. Unknowingly, they can carry within them a lot of tension. They are often reluctant about going to a doctor or health-practitioner, seeing little ailments as of little consequence. As long as they are breathing and moving, they are fine! – so they think.

The Entrepreneur admires people with sound ethical principles, who can be proactive or ”unbending“ during critical moments, and who have a good eye for aesthetics. The Entrepreneur appreciates someone giving him advice on which endeavors are of actual moral value. They benefit from someone showing them how certain individuals are not worth their time. They can struggle with noticing too late when a person is not a good match for them. That is how over time after enough negative interpersonal relationships, the Entrepreneur can become guarded and slow to open up. They don’t mind taking the initiative in establishing contact with a potential partner or asking someone out, but they do require the other person to clearly reciprocate their interest, otherwise their heart remains in doubt indefinitely, and they may give up on the person of their interest and move on. They can be secret romantics and often have a soft spot for children and/or animals.

There are specific variations of the Entrepreneur.

Those variations can be grouped into Te (Extroverted Thinking) subtype and Ni (Introverted Intuition) subtype.

Te subtype Entrepreneurs share one or several of those traits:
Stereotypically extroverted; more impulsive and practical; more invested in science and/or technical subjects; more into sports.

Ni subtype Entrepreneurs share one or several of those traits:
”Ambiverted” (can be mistaken for an introvert); more focused on societal issues and the welfare of society; more innovative; more interested in psychology and spirituality.

An Entrepreneur who falls into both categories more or less is mostly likely the No subtype kind.

Besides the above, other variations are:
More ambitious and status oriented (Type 3); more vigilant and/or intellectual (Type 6); more dominant and gutsy/bossy (Type 8); more principled and perfectionistic (Type 1).
