ENTJ - Extraverted Thinking with Introverted Intuition

Previously, I took the personality test, I blogged about it here.
Cant remember the website, they gave 5 options, like strongly agree, agree, neutral, disagree and strongly disagree.
Today I took one http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp either yes or no

My outcome:

The Executive

As an ENTJ, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you deal with things rationally and logically. (logical)
Your secondary mode is internal, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. (I try not to care so much now)

ENTJs are natural born leaders. (true)
They live in a world of possibilities where they see all sorts challenges to be surmounted, and they want to be the ones responsible for surmounting them. (I don’t mind)
They have a drive for leadership, which is well-served by their quickness to grasp complexities, their ability to absorb a large amount of impersonal information, and their quick and decisive judgments. (people complain I’m too fast)
They are "take charge" people. (would helping be a better word?)

ENTJs are very career-focused, and fit into the corporate world quite naturally. (career-mindedness)
They are constantly scanning their environment for potential problems which they can turn into solutions. (problem solving)
They generally see things from a long-range perspective, and are usually successful at identifying plans to turn problems around - especially problems of a corporate nature. (else, what’s the use?)
ENTJs are usually successful in the business world, because they are so driven to leadership. (I wanna be a billionaire, so freaking bad)
They're tireless in their efforts on the job, and driven to visualize where an organization is headed. (people questioned why do I have so much energy)
For these reasons, they are natural corporate leaders. (thanks :)

There is not much room for error in the world of the ENTJ. (if you wanna do something then do it right, no?)
They dislike to see mistakes repeated, and have no patience with inefficiency. (it’s their fault for being slow right?)
They may become quite harsh when their patience is tried in these respects, because they are not naturally tuned in to people's feelings, and more than likely don't believe that they should tailor their judgments in consideration for people's feelings. (if they care, they should have been faster)
ENTJs, like many types, have difficulty seeing things from outside their own perspective. (are they right?)
Unlike other types, ENTJs naturally have little patience with people who do not see things the same way as the ENTJ. (Y U NO understand?)
The ENTJ needs to consciously work on recognizing the value of other people's opinions, as well as the value of being sensitive towards people's feelings. (I said I tried)
In the absence of this awareness, the ENTJ will be a forceful, intimidating and overbearing individual. (would leading be a better word?)
This may be a real problem for the ENTJ, who may be deprived of important information and collaboration from others. (I try to listen now…)
In their personal world, it can make some ENTJs overbearing as spouses or parents. (why not say over-caring =.=)

The ENTJ has a tremendous amount of personal power and presence which will work for them as a force towards achieving their goals. (if you work, of course is towards a goal)
However, this personal power is also an agent of alienation and self-aggrandizement, which the ENTJ would do well to avoid. (see, I said I tried)

ENTJs are very forceful, decisive individuals. (say caring!!!)
They make decisions quickly, and are quick to verbalize their opinions and decisions to the rest of the world. (should one be direct?)
The ENTJ who has not developed their Intuition will make decisions too hastily, without understanding all of the issues and possible solutions. (ha… I improved =)
On the other hand, an ENTJ who has not developed their Thinking side will have difficulty applying logic to their insights, and will often make poor decisions. (I’m full of logics and I reason things out)
In that case, they may have brilliant ideas and insight into situations, but they may have little skill at determining how to act upon their understanding, or their actions may be inconsistent. (I only see I’m brilliant, lol)
An ENTJ who has developed in a generally less than ideal way may become dictatorial and abrasive - intrusively giving orders and direction without a sound reason for doing so, and without consideration for the people involved. (I always give reason)

Although ENTJs are not naturally tuned into other people's feelings, these individuals frequently have very strong sentimental streaks. (oh well…)
Often these sentiments are very powerful to the ENTJ, although they will likely hide it from general knowledge, believing the feelings to be a weakness. (feeling is a weakness to me, so I always go direct to the point, beside, I don’t think people cares)
Because the world of feelings and values is not where the ENTJ naturally functions, they may sometimes make value judgments and hold onto submerged emotions which are ill-founded and inappropriate, and will cause them problems - sometimes rather serious problems. (people doesn’t care, I believe in that)

ENTJs love to interact with people. ( ^.^ )
As Extroverts, they're energized and stimulated primarily externally. (but I didn’t exercise for a long time 0.o)
There's nothing more enjoyable and satisfying to the ENTJ than having a lively, challenging conversation. (I’ll die if I don’t talk)
They especially respect people who are able to stand up to the ENTJ, and argue persuasively for their point of view. (debates =)
There aren't too many people who will do so, however, because the ENTJ is a very forceful and dynamic presence who has a tremendous amount of self-confidence and excellent verbal communication skills. (just talk! So many things to talk about, like everything?)
Even the most confident individuals may experience moments of self-doubt when debating a point with an ENTJ. (opps :X)

ENTJs want their home to be beautiful, well-furnished, and efficiently run. (doing so now :) almost everyone say they’ve never bought so many things, lol… I’m just looking into whatever can happen, the house must have the things required)
They're likely to place much emphasis on their children being well-educated and structured, to desire a congenial and devoted relationship with their spouse. (smart like me *wink*)
At home, the ENTJ needs to be in charge as much as he or she does in their career. (I can be a better man than a man!)
The ENTJ is likely best paired with someone who has a strong self-image, who is also a Thinking type. (only a guy with brain can think, of course he must think)
Because the ENTJ is primarily focused on their careers, some ENTJs have a problem with being constantly absent from home, physically or mentally. (work from home?)

The ENTJ has many gifts which make it possible for them to have a great deal of personal power, if they don't forget to remain balanced in their lives. (I don’t even know which is my strengths out of my strengths LOL!)
They are assertive, innovative, long-range thinkers with an excellent ability to translate theories and possibilities into solid plans of action. (I always say, just imagine, and I’ll happen :)
They are usually tremendously forceful personalities, and have the tools to accomplish whatever goals they set out for. (of course!)

I think I’m somewhere between ESTP and ENTJ?
No one disagree with me being ESTP, wonder if anyone disagree with me being ENTJ?
But how can one have two personalities?
Unless I’ve got split personality? :o

Anyway, it’s said that personality changes as people go through life :)
