I found this in ENTJ profile:
ENTjs like expensive, good quality clothes, however they can find it difficult to effectively combine their wardrobe. This is especially noticeable in ENTj males. They are very attracted to bright colour combinations and may combine two or three styles together. However, their aesthetic understanding is not usually very well developed and therefore they may find difficult to work where aesthetics play an important role. ENTjs often wear the same clothes for long periods giving the impression that they have just come back from a long trip and haven't had time to change.

This is really not difficult to fix. A 2 day workshop with a stylist, will clue one in on what colours and styles work best.

I attended one of these. Very interesting, I found that I did not look good in colours of the winter palate, although I have dark hair and am of medium complexion! Hehe I'd been embracing the wrong colours for a long time.

I think ENTJs are so rare is purely because it is how the community as a whole works best:

1. ENTJs are naturally leaders, so there can't be too many of them, otherwise there wouldn't be enough people of other types for ENTJs to lead.
2. ENTJs are rather argumentative. As stated above, there can't be too many of them, otherwise there would always be argument without resolution.

Therefore, a group would work best when there are only a few ENTJs to lead.

As a female ENTJ, I have 3 children and 2 stepchildren. Out of those 5 kids (all male), I only have 1 (biological) which is likely an ENTJ (my youngest). The others I would guess are ISTJ, ENFJ (both biological), and the stepsons (which I have a large part in raising) are ISFP and ENFP.

I really do not think ENTJ is passed genetically through generations. In fact, I do not know of anyone else in my blood line that is an ENTJ. While others were happy to waste their time, I have always been obsessed with efficiency beyond explanation. I am just, fair, and ready to roll at all times. It is just a matter of numbers, facts, and figures for me to make quick decisions which tend to be correct.

I have found that I have poor romantic relationships with I-types altogether, it is just too much emotional drag and guess work (they make great friends though). I'm able to work well with S-types, but they do tend to irritate me with how slow they are at times, which makes it tempting to disregard their input altogether based on potential lack of intel in the subject (or at least that is how I am tempted to perceive the lack of quick wit). I've found some success with F-types balancing me out, but only if I am able to respect them in the other aspects. And I have to minimize my contact with P types to fair weather friends because the chaos that can encircle them is mind boggling to me, the ultimate organizer.

I digress, I still do not think the lack of ENTJs is based on reproduction. I do, however, think that any more in the world could lead to fierce competition which could stress out all the other types altogether - so maybe it is a good thing we are the unicorns in small numbers!
