    Question ENTJ learning from ESTP

    I want to hook up with an ESTP to work with; I'm sure I'll find one soon enough, one that's smart enough for my taste
    I know the ESTP and the ENTJ are very alike but are complementary, like ying yang, but um, what are the differences in personality that I can focus on and learn from?

    In short, what can I learn from the ESTP?
    bruised and battered ENTJ sx/sp/so 8w9
    Tri-fix: 8w9 sx/sp - 3w4 sp/sx - 5w6 soc/sx

    S = reality
    P = Spontaneous Fun

    S+P = one very nervous ENTJ exploring boundaries

    they teach us how to seek worldly pleasures...like sky diving...

    i have only ever known one ESTP. he was my best friends dad. and the first time i met him, he made us all stay up playing computer games until all hours of the morning.

    they teach us how to just do something that makes us happy. regardless of responsibility or obligation.

    How to have fun.. how to be more spontaneous, to seize the immediate moment, to relinquish control, to size up possibilities and opportunities. They also seem to have a pretty innovative way of dealing with and reading people on the fly, seemingly caring more about "Fe" than we tend to do.

    Probably most realtors and salespeople I've met are ESTP. Go find one at a store that sells things in an area of your interest and just chat one up. I'm sure they'll indulge you in more personal conversation, too; whether it's to make a sale or just for the fun of it from them, you'll learn either way.

    Here's a discussion on their differences.. you can see how you (we) are different from them

    I'm an esfp with entj boyfriend. (he really likes us sp's, many of his friends are sp's too.) And I would have to agree with the last post by entj extrodinaire. He likes that I can just avoid obligations like the plague and be seemingly oblivious. I just want to have fun and do everything necissary at the very last minute. I think that the ENTJ is a good candidate for dating someone like this because 1.) They often need to loosen up a bit. (Mine does, anyway.) and 2.) He really likes to have fun despite all the daily tasks on his mind. (I imagine that might be true for other ENTJ's.) We can also learn a lot from you guys, too. I love my ENTJ because he makes me feel protected and taken care of. (Much of the time I'm one big problem to be solved for him. He needs to get me food cause i'm hungry, he needs to bring me someplace cause i'm bored, he needs to clean up my mess because I want to sit on the computer.) So it works for the both of us. I imagine it would be the same with an entj/estp combination

    hmmm....i am dating an ENTP. that really works with us, because we have a LOT in common (we are both completely EVIL for example) i don't think i could ever date an ESTP though. for one thing, i don't particularly like S's. i have two friends in total that i talk to most days that are S's. the rest of my friends are N's. i find the S's lack of insight, and so the lack of ability to talk about insight with them to be rather limiting, and very annoying but thats just me.

    so its definitely true of a J/P relationship to make the J more "chilled" and the P to feel a whole lot more secure, safe, and cared for. the N/S difference for me is a little hard to deal with because i generally dislike S's, so can't really say i take anything from them.

    i guess if anything they show me that its important to watch the real world, and thats the best place to get details and facts (which ENTJ practically Jizz over apparently) lol. but its sort of true. they bring us, and our systems back to earth. and as for the N influence. well, we show the S that there is more to life than what you see and feel.

    me: WHY DO YOU DATE ME. I'M SUCH AN IRRESPONSIBLE BITCH
    him: cause you're fun.
    me: THATS IT?? I'M FUN. I WOULD DUMP SOMEONE WHO IS JUST FUN.
    him: (laughs) you make me loosen up and have fun. I need that.

    HAHAHAHA

    funniest part out of all that is i have had that conversation with my ENTP as well

    she always asks why i am dating her still.

    i can't say i would still be dating her coz its 'fun'. but more for the fact that i want to help her. its not a fun thing, but an obligation thing. ENTJ seem to love obligation lol. we take it from where ever we can.

    My ESTP friend basically makes me ESTP around him. He throws parties, drags me out to bars in the middle of the week, makes me listen to weird music and he enjoys my cooking. Pretty fun dude

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    did someone say ESTP? ;D

    What can you learn from us? It's pretty much never ending... we love new things!

    You will love our stories that we often tell when something reminds us of it
