What Is an Evil Overlord?


A couple of years ago, I took an online survey based on the more complicated Meyers-Briggs Personality Index. This test is often used to help determine possible career choices and to help co-workers understand their relationships. My profile came out as ENTJ: Extraverted Thinking/iNtroverted Intuition/ExTraverted Sensing, my weakness, Introverted Feeling.
The one word name for this personality type, held by 1-2% of the population, is The Executive. An Executive, as we know, is organized, a leader, outspoken, and often considered bossy. On a funny parody site, this type is called The Evil Overlord.The friends with whom I took the test thought this was absolutely hysterical, and true, since I’m very opinionated, and the name has stuck. So I thought it was a funny name for a blog.

If you’d like to try the Jung Typology Survey, it takes about 15 minutes and is all Yes/No questions. Be honest. I’ve taken this test 5 times and it always gives me the same rating. I even compared it to the full test I took in college and it was the same. Some famous ENTJs include:

Beatrice Arthur
Les Aspen, former U.S. Secretary of Defense

Candace Bergen

Julius Caesar
Hillary Rodham Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State

Sean Connery

Howard Cosell

Elizabeth I, Queen of England
Harrison Ford

Whoopi Goldberg

Al Gore, U.S. Vice President

Margaret Thatcher, British Prime Minister

Richard M. Nixon

Franklin D. Roosevelt
