Immediate examples that come to mind:
My point is that it is inaccurate to describe modern American buisiness history without mentioning the enormous contribution of Bill Gates, or modern British history without mentioning the Thatcher revolution as the prime mover, or the Eastern theater of WW II/ Post-war Japan/ the liberation of the Phillipines without mentioned Douglas McArthur as its principal architect.
However, you will rarely encounter these three described in those ways by the man on the street, or the average newsreader/ TV talking head.
I think all three of these famous ENTJs had generation-changing accomplishments, but did not actively seek any recognition or adulation for their achievements, and have been actively targeted by the media during their careers.
In other words, sometimes I wonder if the world sees ENTJs as 'a--holes who are magically right' - i.e. like an immature view of a 'dad' figure. All 3 above have literally been scorned in the UK/ US media, even during their prime, and are regarded as 'necessary evils'. Bill Gates is one of my favorite examples: "Bill Gates is an evil monopolistic dictator! We are all forced to use Microsoft because it is prohibitively expensive and inefficient to use any other firms products in a mass business setting! What a jerk for providing such comprehensive interoperability!" Or Thatcher, vilified by the media all through her incredible and unprecedented term in office.
Is there something in the ENTJ approach or psyche that does not serve to 'endear'?
Are folks that 'endear' inevitably artisans (i.e. SPs)? or Fs?
Obviously I may be referring to the reaction of the sheeple, and as an ENTJ myself, I don't really seek affirmation in any way. But is that 'why they hate us' ? Because we don't seek their approval/ blessings/ adulation, because of which they have no power over us? Or is that the rational's (i.e. NT's) curse in general?
Or maybe is it the 'J' that causes a problem? I think it is easier for an INTP to be 'loved' than an ENTJ. e.g. Einstein. (sidenote: that would make INTPs 'weirdos who are magically right' )
Is it the Fi, and the Te?
Can anyone name a single famous 'beloved' ENTJ?
