That's just the nature of their beast. :: A quality I wish I could possess, sometimes, but it does tend to send me scurrying around hiding my vulnerable feelings when they come to call.
    Emotional autopsies? Be more specific please.

    On the other hand, people accepting things without question feels like being buried alive.

    Oh yes, we are generally very relaxed and irresponsible.

    Let me see if I can articulate what I've noticed accurately...

    ENTPs are amazing innovators, and for that I really admire them. It's brilliant to see them go after an idea that fascinates them. That trait becomes a relational train wreck when their fascination with you or your problem or whatever causes you pain becomes their shiny new toy. All relational perspective can get lost, and before you know it, they can be up to their elbows in your emotional gore with a fantastic, buzzed look on their face...because while you're having the worst moment of your life, they're on cloud nine because of some weird realization or breakthrough. It's endearing (because I also like peope puzzles) and exasperating when I really just want to be validated.

    Are you familiar with the character Dr Walter bishop from Fringe? Quintessential ENTP, imo. (and my favorite character on the show. )
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    Never seen it. I don't watch much TV. Turned it on the other day and noticed they switched to digital TV signal rendering my tiny 13 inch TV useless.

    I do download HBO shows, though.

    This is downloadable on Fox...bet you'd like it if you're into Sci-Fi, paranormal centered, science-y type shows. I like them. The characters are nice and complex.

    I don't have experience with a lot of ENTPs, but the three I do know are dynamic and overwhelming to me sometimes. I enjoy the solution oriented driveness coupled with the logic. They were helpful in practical and theoretical terms. I value the interaction quite a bit. Above all, it was nice to not have censor every word that comes out of my mouth. I find the constant censoring exhausting and it's why I don't talk often.

    My last boyfriend was an ENTP and only because of outside influences did we go our separate ways. I found him to be charming, gregarious, incredibly intelligent and funny. He also was willing to examine what concerns I had and would follow-up to discuss it further. I loved the fact he was so knowledgable about so many topics and we explored many subjects together.

    Thanks. I get frustrated when I can't explain it all the first time. With the way things have been lately, I've been especially skewed all over the place. It just takes time lots of time.
