Who are the famous actors and actresses with the ENTJ personality type?

Furthermore, ENTJ types like to take charge which may not be ideal for economics unless they’re in a leadership role.
Who are the famous authors and writers with the ENTJ personality type?
The most famous authors and writers with the ENTJ personality type are Jack London and Mao Dun.

American author Jack London particularly exemplifies the Commander personality type. He was a rugged, radical literary figure. London’s innate confidence and charisma helped him build a successful career as a writer while championing many social causes.
Who are the celebrity musicians with the ENTJ personality type?
There are not many celebrity musicians with the ENTJ personality type because ENTJs gravitate towards practical career paths. Commander types are naturally charismatic, but they don’t enjoy being the center of attention or performing for groups like the people-oriented ESFP personality type.

How do ENTJs deal with popularity?
ENTJs deal with popularity very well, though they don’t really care about being popular. Commanders are naturally charismatic leader types so people tend to gravitate towards them. That said, famous ENTJs like James Cameron or Steve Jobs care more about getting things done and achieving goals than they do about being well-liked. Popularity is simply a consequence of an ENTJ’s goal-orientated, take-charge personality.

What other personality type is the best match for an ENTJ?

People with ENTJs traits further provide the direction and confidence INTPs need to come out of their shells. Meanwhile, INTPs serve as a source of intellectual conversation Thinking-types like ENTJs appreciate.
