12 Famous ENTJs And Their Quotes on Life, Love, and Ambition

ENTJs are some of the most highly driven, natural-born leaders in the world. Called “The Fieldmarshalls” by MBTI expert David Kiersey, the ENTJ has always been a much-needed force for progress and innovation. I have a special place in my heart for ENTJs because my dad happens to be one. Growing up I saw him work hard to achieve ideas and dreams that others called “crazy”. He was purposeful, logical, unrelenting, and pushed me to be very independent and creative. Most of his crazy dreams became realities, and he taught me to work hard to reach my goals, no matter how ridiculous other people might think they are. So to all ENTJs and the ones who love them, these quotes are for you 🙂

  1. Hi.. I am ENTJ
    I love the quotes, especially aristotele’s. I have the same argument with aristotele, hehhe.. I mean, I think that we didn’t come to this world with special excellent or gift, instead we create it and make it our habit… I believe in hardwork.

      1. I love those quotes, I’m also an ENTJ, maybe my N not so strong, but other letters very high. My favorite quote was from Charlize Theron, “There’s nothing I despise more than people trying to be something they’re not.”. Loved that. I did not know there were so many famous ENTJ, it is not an easy going personality, and I believe that all these tests are meant to help us know ourselves better and improve in the weak areas. Thanks for the article!

    1. Hi! Thanks for asking 🙂 Typologists like David Keirsey, psychologists, and even Carl Jung himself have tried to type famous people throughout history by reading their memoirs, journals, and biographies. I don’t trust all the predictions of what people’s types would have been, but I tried to research these as much as possible to make sure there was a relatively thorough job done on typing them. I hope that helps answer your question!

  6. Hi,

    Thanks for these interesting quotes! I especially liked the Roosevelt quotation about fear.

    This is because I think he is right about that: Fear itself is the only thing we have to fear.

    In other words, we must bring ourselves out of fear and worry and complaint, by adding more positivity and happiness to our lives. And when we focus more on the good things and less on the bad things, we will also improve our overall health and well-being.

    So thanks again for these quotes. Very inspiring!
