    Default ENFP vs ENTP?

    Differences? Similarities?

    What do you all have to say about it?

    Many people I know tend to confuse them.

    Here's my explanation:

    ENFP vs ENTP:



    OTHER MBTI VIDEOS:

    Ni vs Ne:


    Ti vs Te:


    Fi vs Fe:

    Very good explanation, you showed me some different point of views of both types. And the explanation of how each type use each of its functions was great too.

    All types with the same dom are very alike and hard to differ, but I guess ENTP and ENFP are one of the hardest imo. For example, it's not that easy to confuse an ESFP with an ESTP, even they're both Se dom. Or even INFJ and INTJ, both Ni dom.
    Anyway, I think you should eventually make seven more videos explaining all other types with the same dom function.

    I'm not sure if you made that video just for me, but if you did I appreciate it. I can relate to things in both descriptions really. The good thing is that I am pretty sure that I lead with Ne. So at least that is set in stone.

    What I relate to when it comes to Ti:

    -I am an EXTREMEMLY analytical person. I do tend to analyze things to the bone, and don't make quick decisions at all. It's like I will analyze and analyze until I can't analyze anymore, and then I make a decision. The awful thing is that after that I then analyze some more, and if I decide that my previous decision doesn't make sense then I will almost like throw everything away and start from scratch. My cognitive process is a pain in the ass.
    -I am excellent with computers, technology, and gadgets and can easily figure out any type of technical device.

    -Fi traits

    -I am a very subjective person, and almost no one would view me as impersonal at all.
    -I don't do well with criticism at all, and can get sensitive at times.
    -I'm very into self expression.

    Te traits

    I basically suck with Te. I hate using Te, and don't use it worth a damn.

    Fe traits

    -I'm very good at care taking.
    -I can easily know and feel what others are feeling.
    -I don't really like to offend people and I always know if I am going to offend people.
    -I instantly know how others feel about me.
    -I'm very self-sacrificing.

    Yes, I got your reputation and many do say that I seem more ENTP than ENFP. I actually just made this video of me too, did you see it....

    Here's my explanation:

    ENFP vs ENTP:
    The video states incorrectly that "80% feeling and 20% thinking doesn't work that way." It states this as an argument to rely only on functions.

    This is a common assumption I've seen around here. But Jung himself has sections on Feeling in general and Thinking in general, i.e., not related to attitudes. These alone qualify as functions in general.

    I'm about 20 seconds in and paused to say i get a distinct ENTP vibe from you. Will carry on watching now though... and edit to add more.

    Haha, ok, 1.40 in and just wanted to say i feel good about you being ENTP...
    Yah... you reek of another ENTP i know... i think you have well developed Fe though, which may have caused some confusement over your type.
    That thing where you frequently mention "morons" and talk of your own intelligence-
    I see the Ne, Ti and Fe, i just think your Fe is high.

    @HelenOfTroy

    Thanks for the info. Why did you think ENTP over ENFP?

    You have an analytical slant that i do not so often see in ENFP's, also... "most people are morons" is not something i hear from the mouths of babes so much (though it is true... i wouldn't usually phrase it that way and infact am already debating it in my own head). Believing you are an intellectual too...and quite decided about it. Also... i know it sounds silly, but the eyebrow wiggling at the beginning... something about it...reminds me of other ENTP's.
    ENFP's are often gentler, bouncier and more accepting (in general).
    I have more... that's immediate off the top of my head stuff....and poss not all exactly correct... but mine thoughts -so valid (to me).
