Steve Vai is widely regarded as one of the best guitar players in the world. As well as his own solo career he’s played with Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth and Whitesnake.

Steve’s Myers Briggs type is ENTJ. ENTJs have a inborn gift for two very useful abilities – the ability to create an image in their mind of a future outcome, and the ability to see the most important steps to get there. Notice this as you watch the video at the top of the page where Steve explains his formula for success.

Effective ENTJs are action oriented and rarely get bogged down in unnecessary details. They simply create a compelling vision and execute.

In person you’ll often notice that ENTJs will tend to be quick thinkers who naturally take a dominant role in most group situations.

Competence in general is important to ENTJs and they will often be driven to work very hard to achieve excellence.

“I dedicated all the time I had to it. The 10 hour workout was just what I put in the magazine at the time, but for me it was every waking moment.”

“Most people are fascinated to see someone play an instrument in an inspired way. We are moved by witnessing musical brilliance, and it was this notion that led me to purchase the GuitarTV domain 10 years ago.”

Evolved, mature ENTJs will almost always filter their actions through the question of ‘what will be the most effective course of action in this situation’, rarely letting emotion or ego get the better of them.

Other great ENTJ guitar players include:

  • Yngwie Malmsteen
  • Jennifer Batten
