ENTJ vs ISFJ
Give time for reflection
Give your friend time to reflect on your words. Don’t expect a response quickly – be patient and wait for the answer. Don’t interrupt.
Explain things at a details level
Talking about the big picture is natural for you, but often leaves your friend confused. Break down the big picture to the specifics like to-dos and actionable steps.
Adopt a gentle and affirming tone
Your words may come across as offensive and insensitive to your friend. Adopt a gentle and affirming tone when engaging your friend.
Give time for a change
Your friend may be uncomfortable with your new ideas or initiatives – give him/her time and space to make adjustments if the change is necessary.
Use past success to convince
For your friend to adopt a new proposal or idea, he/she has to see track records of past success. Show these to convince your friend of the merit of your idea.
