    It's a trademarked skill.
    so you are loyal towards nobody ?

    edit: i know i would hate for somebody i trust to turn on a plate and challenge my opinions etc. just for the fun of it

    On the contrary; we consider it our civic duty to inform you when you've overestimated the logical consistency of your position.

    We appreciate opportunities to learn where we are making mistakes and improve upon them, and we often expect others to feel the same way...but rather than take the opportunity to learn, most people just get pissy and stagnate, so we learn to channel our desire to correct people into online forums and other NTP friends that will actually appreciate it.

    Yeah, we'd consider that a weakness on your part. "The fun of it" is only half the motivation; people tend to try and explain ENTP motivations in singular terms and that's often an oversimplification.

    We do think it's fun to challenge people's opinions, and part of that is just personal enjoyment, but part of it is also that we enjoy it because we like shifting people's perspectives and seeing them figure out new things as a result of our guidance.

    Also part of the game is to keep up a somewhat condescending attitude, especially if the person seems arrogant about his/her erroneous position, because we like to see if you can remain impersonal enough to garner the valuable advice from what we're saying instead of just focusing on the overt condescension: Will he be smart and learn something, or be dumb and just get offended?

    It's one of our favorite games.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I would consider NFJ's (at least INFJ's) the least arrogant type i think (maybe not, but close) so i can't really understand that.... I like the point you make about shifting peoples perspectives, but i don't think it would work on me at least.. not in the way you specify

    Oh come on, we all know EMTPs don't give a shit about thread continuity.

    Better call the thread continuity police.

    At least that way you'll be telling someone who cares.
