    Default What can NFPs do that NTPs can't do better?

    NTPs are highly intuitive and perceptive. They're good at reading people and situations and even better at finding solutions. That also puts them in the running for good listeners because they know when to listen and how.

    Those are usually qualities/skills I attribute to NFPs, but I maintain that NTPs can help people more effectively, affect social change, and everything else NFPs are known for (except crying).

    So I ask you, what is something that the NFPs can do better than the NTPs? Also, prove it; if you can think of something, let's create a contest and see who does better.

    Feelings. Understanding feelings. Helping others understand their feelings.

    Being socially and interpersonally inclined.

    Joining the peacecorp.

    Getting "in touch with themselves"

    I have never generally heard the social skills your attributing to NTP's be generally attributed to NTP's, btw. ENTP are talked upped pretty well though, especially as entrepreneurs and "idea people."

    You hear constant talk from NTPs on this forum about how they just can't seem to find the right psychological distance with people. From the extroverted variety, you'll also hear about how, in group settings, they often blurt out the first thing that comes to mind without considering the group first.

    Also, the whole "preference != skill" thing.


    Can I please re-join the NF team, just for this contest? This thread shames me into wanting to disown the NT label.

    okay, you asked for it
    1) fighting passionately for their convictions (Joan of Arc)
    2) appreciation of art and beauty (large number of NFP artists, performers and musicians)
    3) seducing the opposite sex (Casanova)
    4) better fashion sense overall (large number of NFP fashion designers)
    5) inspiring people (
    6) knowing one's self (Fi deals with this thoroughly)
    7) musical performance (disproportional number of NFP singers)
    8) a more indivualistic set of values (again, Fi as opposed to Fe group values)
    9) better F/T balance (can't prove this one, just observation)
    10) better with children and pets (personal experience and observation. can't exactly prove this one either)

    I've found through casusal observations that NTP's tend to rely too much on logic as opposed to NFP's who have greater emotional maturity. Also, Fi possess a greater sense of conviction and resolve than Ti ever could, Fi generates a greater emotiona lresponse and will act of it, Ti will just sit and analyze something to death all day.

    I think this thread is meant as a friendly competition. if anything though, I think NFPs are actually worse about this
