    Default ENTP (The Inventor)

    I recently took the MBTI test and discovered I am an ENTP. I read over the descriptions and was disappointed to see how little it described me. Any info on ENTPs in general? I'm also a 3w4. How likely is it that you can be a ENTP and a 3w4, since the both seem to clash?

    Getting a type from myers briggs type indicator doesent determine your type, it simply indicates towards the most possible type according to how you answered the questions(and there are many different biases that can make you answer the questions "incorrectly" and cause the indicator to show a wrong type). In the early days of MBTI, you had a professional to go throught the results and explaining what all of it means to help you determine wether the type fits for you or not, today its mostly forgotten as it costs money and you cant really get that with free internet tests. Just something every newcomer should know about MBTI.

    Also those type deacriptions only describe the stereotypical person of that type, in the real world we are all more or less different from that.

    It's kind of hard to see, but it appears that being an ENTP with a 3 enneagram is uncommon, but not unheard of. :]

    I always thought 3 was common for ENTP's, along with 6 & 7 (and also some 5's and 8's).

    ENTPs seem most commonly 7w8 or 7w6, with a handful of 3w4's.

    What didn't fit you?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that like every character that Robert Downey Jr. plays in every single movie he's in is an ENTP 3 (possibly 3w4).

    They don't clash at all. In fact it's not uncommon for ENTPs to be a 3 (most likely 3w4), or an 8 (most likely 8w7). 7 comes next. I gathered data from http://pstypes.blogspot.com/ a while ago and ENTPs ended up ranking higher in 3 and 8 than 7.

    Most common ENTP E-types I've seen people identify as are 7 followed by 3 and 8, with 6 getting a fair placing.
