    I have a serious weakness for them! A charismatic, communicative NT is a beautiful thing!

    I'm married to one........and he's been great at helping me manage the ENFP paranoia & hypersensitivity with his detached manner. I'm a lot tougher than I used to be.

    You gotta be competitive though to survive & earn their respect! I vacillate between engaging them on their arguments and poking fun at them personally.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I like ENT's in professional interactions. I've had ENT's as authority figures and as students. It seems to work pretty well in both cases because I'm an idealist who works hard and can see past roughness in communication and into their direct intent. I don't get offended easily unless the person's intent appears to be to harm me in some way. ENTPs strike me really really funny. I had one as a student once who used to accidentally insult me all the time. I knew what he was trying to say, and that's what made it so hilarious.

    I don't have much experience with them personally, so that is a tougher call. The structured environments of professional interaction weeds out a lot of potential conflict in terms of communication and expectations. I'm not certain what the boundaries would look like if they were not clearly defined as in the professional environments. I'm guessing it would be more difficult in a personal, spontaneous relationship. My main concern is that they wouldn't be a soft or silent place to land after life wears me down.

    Gee sorry......... if you want the negative, go to an ENT rant thread!

    What did you expect from NFs? We do tend to see things we like in people, that's pretty standard......

    And if I personally didn't like the typical NT set of traits, it would be foolish for me to marry one!

    I find it a bit weird when people respond to this with just 'they are...' or 'I find them...' and don't distinguish between ENTJ's and ENTP's. The ones who do make very good points, but the ones who don't seem not to realise that we're talking about two very different characters here, with a different line-up of functions completely, point and counterpoint.

    ENTP: Ne Ti Fe Si
    ENTJ: Te Ni Se Fi

    Though there are some basic similarities with regard to preference for logic and objectivity, that's about where it ends - the ways in which ENTJ's and ENTP's enact their thoughts, and the ways in which they perceive the world are quite, quite different.

    Perhaps that is why ENTPs/ ENTJs tend to like each other. They are very complementary in their functions.

    The only official ENTP I've known was in college and do not think it's indicative of ENTP and me (and really hope not). Another woman I did student gov with and the lot of us all had to do MBTI and team building exercises. We BOTH and only us two tested as ENTP and I was greatly displeased. Perhaps a maturity thing but I found her grasping and an even bigger and less smooth attention whore than me. (And you can't have more than 1 in a room at the same time) She seemed to lack some basic social filters and was always making faux pas mostly on purpose to get attention. She was also a huge pot head and acted as such. Basically I thought she was bitchy and tried too hard and kinda a drag queen. She was 22 about to graduate from a pseudo Ivy League college and dating a 17 year old townie drug dealer. I was not impressed. That was another sign that I was and needed to be more F than T. I'm still T and F cusp and test as both.

    I do however have two very close INTP friends (I thought they tested E but of course not they are strong I's)

    I can see that ENTPs and ENFPs might be a little weary of each other. Just curious, CzeCze, but what is a pseudo Ivy League college? Is that like in Kansas or something?
