ENTJ

"Today you are you. That is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you."

The Myers-Briggs personality profile test is fascinating, interesting, and intriguing.
Since two analytical individuals in my life, whom I love deeply, requested me to take it (at two different times and with no knowledge of the other's "ask") I readily complied.
Twice I've taken it in the past year and twice it's given me an identical "read."
------
The confirmation of my originality and uniqueness was made evident by percentage:
My personality "type" places me in the narrow 3% of the population.
Am I really "that" different, I wondered?
And then I praised God and I loved Him for it.
I am who I am because of Him; and you are who you are because of Him.

I'm an ENTJ. (You can do the homework.)
My profile is "The Commander."
I'm set apart as a natural born leader and embody gifts of charisma and confidence.
I project authority and have the ability to empower others.
I'm also characterized by a ruthless level of discipline, possessed with an unrelenting drive, determination, and sharp mind that either challenges or threatens others.
I won't bore you with the long term results but to say that the 3% of individuals who share my composite are admirable individuals:
Bill Gates - Microsoft Founder
Edward Teller - Physicist
Margaret Thatcher - British Prime Minister
Franklin D. Roosevelt - 32nd President of the U.S.
Steve Jobs - American Entrepreneur. Co-founder of Apple and major shareholder of Pixar.
*ENTJs account for 1 - 3% of males formally tested and 1 - 2% of females.
No wonder I feel just a trifle bit different.

It's interesting to note, dear Reader, that I've read the biographies of several of these individuals already, and half a dozen times or better in the past year I've been instructed, based on personality "comparability" to read Steve Jobs of which I am finally and firmly going to do this very day.
Hmmm ...
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
-Steve Jobs

Inspiration and practical insight can be garnered and gained by an understanding of one's self. Take the Briggs Myers personality test free online (Google it and it will pop up.)
  You might be surprised by what you learn and you might "see" your loved ones a little differently.
Discover comparable "likenesses" of your personality type and do a little reading and research on them. You'll find an easy path of identification with these individuals and you'll likely be inspired to achieve more and become more.
Be a beautiful "you" and no one else;
It's the only "one" that God will ever call you to be.
