Do you have your eye on an ENTJ and want to figure out if they might return the feelings? You’re in luck. When it comes to the different MBTI personality types, ENTJs one of the easier ones to decode. So how do ENTJs act around their crush? We’ll explore the ENTJ flirting style and what they look for in a partner.
ENTJ Flirting Style
We’ve talked about ENTJ flirting in our ENTJ Dating Guide, but it’s worth noting here as well. One way to spot if an ENTJ has a crush on you is to recognize signs of flirting.
When an ENTJ flirts, expect them to be direct and upfront about their interest. They may not beat around the bush or play games, but instead, will let you know exactly how they feel. This can be a refreshing change for people who are used to more subtle forms of flirting.
ENTJs may also flirt by trying to engage you in lively debates or conversations. They enjoy mental stimulation and love to talk, so this is their way of showing interest in you. If you find yourself being drawn into a lively discussion with an ENTJ, it may be a sign that they’re interested in you.
Of course, not all ENTJs will flirt in the same way and some may be more subtle than others. We’ve heard from more than a few ENTJs who say they like to tease their crushes and admit to tossing out mixed signals.
ENTJs who are not as confident have a track record of bending over backward for people they insist they are just friends with, which is unhelpful for both parties, especially if the crush likes them back.
(Hint: don’t do that!)
How does an ENTJ show love?
There are many ways that an ENTJ can show love, but one of the most common is through acts of service.
ENTJs are very practical people and they often express their love by doing things that are helpful to their loved ones. This might include taking care of tasks that need to be done, such as fixing a broken appliance or mowing the lawn. ENTJs might also show their love by giving their time and attention to their loved ones, listening to them, and offering advice when needed.
They’re also your biggest cheerleaders. Expect an ENTJ to not only have an interest in your goals but actively support them.
What is the ENTJ love language?
The ENTJ love language is very much linked to their flirting style. As we mentioned, ENTJs are direct and upfront about their interest, so their love language is likely to be verbal. This means that they express their love through words, both in terms of what they say and how they say it.
ENTJs are also likely to show their love by doing things for their loved ones. This could be anything from taking care of a task to simply being there for them when they need someone to talk to.
Do ENTJs fall in love easily?
ENTJs are not the type of people to fall in love easily. They take relationships very seriously and they want to be sure that they are making a wise choice before committing to anything. This doesn’t mean that ENTJs don’t fall in love, but simply that they tend to approach relationships with caution and thoughtfulness.
It’s also important to note that ENTJs are not known for being emotionally adept, so falling in love might look differently for them. Translation: don’t expect ENTJs to turn to mush where matters of the heart are concerned.

How to connect with an ENTJ
If you’re interested in connecting with an ENTJ, the best thing to do is to approach them directly. ENTJs will appreciate your directness and find it attractive.
Another way to connect with an ENTJ is to engage them in lively discussion or debate. They love mental stimulation and they will be drawn to you if you can keep up with their quick wit.
Don’t try to force it. ENTJs dislike insincerity (don’t we all). Look for natural commonalities and topics you can connect to and see where it goes!
Who are ENTJs attracted to?
Chances are you’re here because you’re trying to decode an ENTJ love interest’s behavior. You might want to know what ENTJs are into, and that’s where we come in. So let’s talk about who ENTJs are attracted to.
ENTJs are attracted to people who are confident, intelligent, and direct. They have a natural affinity for types that use extroverted intuition, which dispels some of the theories that INTPs are the best ENTJ mates (we also have it on good authority that ENTJs like INFPs a lot, too).
It honestly depends on the ENTJ. Some ENTJs like people who are more yin to their yang, while others want someone who plays on their level.
Interestingly enough, a woman named Heidi Priebe interviewed a small sample of ENTJs (60 people) to determine which types they found most attractive. Here are the top results:
- 24% chose ENFPs
- 15% chose INTPs
- 11% chose ENTPs
Is this the most scientific sample? No, but it gives us good anecdotal evidence of what ENTJs are looking for in their partners.

Which qualities do ENTJs look for in partners?
When it comes to relationships, ENTJs are looking for partners who are the following:
We get the sense that most ENTJs are looking for a mate that complements them perfectly. They’re looking for power couple status.
That being said, it’s important for ENTJs to find people that balance them out. Both partners can’t be overbearing extroverts, so there needs to be an even mix.
Final Thoughts on How do ENTJs Act Around Their Crush
The great thing about ENTJs is that healthy ones are pretty transparent. Unhealthy ENTJs might be a little tougher to decipher, but that’s just human nature. When an ENTJ has a crush on you, you’ll be able to tell. They’ll take a keen interest in you and go out of their way to spend time with you, something very valuable to these ambition-driven individuals.
If you’re still not sure, the best way to know if an ENTJ likes you is to ask! Terrifying, I know, but they’ll be honest with you.
