    Default ENFP-ENTP friendships

    I'm posting this here for an ENFP perspective, since I'm an ENTP.
    I feel these two types work very well together as friends. I seem to balance the feeling of my ENFP friends with a bit of rationality, along with offering a plotting mind for our crazy schemes, and the ENFPs seem to instill me with the zesty enthusiasm that they ooze. The issue I see is that we can both be manic, and end up going way overboard in our endeavors(not that it's not fun while it lasts!). I love the whimsy of ENFP's, and I often get behind it with all my enthusiasm.
    Another dynamic I've noticed is our mutual love of interesting experiences/stories, which ENTP/ENFP people all seem to be loaded with.
    ENFP's also keep in check my tendency to be overly annoyed by irrationality, and keep things fun and light, which ends up being more fun for all involved. They make me less uptight.
    Feel free to share thoughts, experiences, whatever crosses your mind.

    When Targo (ENFP) and Oberon (ENTP) would get together here on the forum, things just got... out of control...

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    i've just known a few on here...but i like them lots and think we'd have lots of fun in person.

    Please elaborate.
    BTW, mutual self-destruction isn't a pitfall to me, just another adventure, rife with stories to tell and lessons to learn.

    Have to say that though I enjoy ENTPs, I have bad experiences with some irl, which makes me cautious of them.

    No self-destructionis a definite plus in my book too It may be just in my case but I find that often I do things to piss the ENTP off! She tends to presume attack where there is none... and is extremely sensitive... not all her fault I am a little too slap dash probably in my relationships to really suit her... It then leads to lots of problems and we are often unable to speak to eachother... she lives close by and we have same part-time job so this can make things tricky... just in our case though!

    I will say that even being a type I respect/like doesn't make you immune from me using you to my own ends in the social circle. I have to highly respect you as an individual, or I will use you without regret or conscience.
    Not maliciously, but the same way I'd use any tool.
    Not sure if that's the kind of "bad experience" you meant, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Sounds like an ENTP lacking either self-worth or confidence. I was the same way the first 3 years of highschool.
