This is a very interesting topic. Before I only knew my own desires, needs, and ambitons I assumed Entj women were stereotypical career women without desire for family lives. I of course assumed I was the exception to the rule. Now that I have become more aware of other Entj women I have found that to be far from the truth. The woman at my office with the most kids (5 with a 6th on the way) is Entj. She LOVES kids and is completely sane. I once asked her how she did it all, and she joked that she has been telling her husband for some time now that they need to get a wife. I think the Entj descriptions and assumptions leave people thinking that Entj women would be poor nurturers and neglectful to children. But from what I have seen, it is the exact opposite. In my opinion, they are the ones that are best at the job. I know two Entj women in their late 40’s who have raised great kids. One of them is working on her Masters at the same school I am, works, and manages to cook for her high school kids every night. I know one other Entj female my age and her only ambition in life is to be a great mother and wife; she wants to be the stay at home mom and be involved in all her kids activities. She has been to college and will never be in the position where she can’t provide, but her greatest desire is for her family. She also wants 5 kids and cooks more than any of my other friends. She cooks for her boyfriend almost every night.
I want to stay at home for years after I first have kids, but I’m not sure how long exactly. I think that’s something I will have to gauge once I have them. One thing about Entj women is that we are the ultimate multitaskers. I always have to be busy with something. So if I ONLY stayed at home and didn’t touch anything else, my house would be ridiculously immaculate, I would experiment every night with gourmet meals, my kids would probably be reading at 1, I’d have time to plan romantic evenings… and oh the possibilities. Even then I would probably have spare time and have to create something else for me to do.
So can Entj women be Domestic Goddesses? The name was probably invented because of us.
