ENTJs and Extreme Habits


I’m a female ENTJ and the mother of a two-year-old. I’ve been staying home with him for almost a year.

My habits are extreme. I’m wondering if any other ENTJs go through this? Running five miles every single day or not running at all? Eating super healthy meals or just junk food?

I have always been extreme. But motherhood seems to have made it wayyyyy worse. I will get rid of stuff in the house until there’s nothing left just to relieve the stress of having stuff I can’t control. And then I’ll let stuff accumulate with the intention of trying to control it better.

I never just relax, I’m always doing a million things. And being a stay-at-home mom is really boring, even though I busy myself all freakin’ day and late into the night. But I chose it because I want to do the best possible job of raising my son and I don’t trust anyone else to do it. Extreme! So extreme.

Who else has extreme habits?


All types run the risk of being extreme. Just like all types can get there cool on. However as an enfj who has also jumped to extremes I feel I can relate. For me most extreme behavior can be connected to the "I have toos " Rather than the I want to. Or a result of coming out of depression. At those times the motivation comes and goes. This is actually normal.
You sound like a person who can achieve things that surpass your peers in whatever you put your heart into. It is good at this time to be kind to your mind. You will bounce back when you are ready. ENFJs are famous for rising from their ashes
