    You have to take into consideration that this is posted in the NF Idyllic and directed towards INFJs. So mainly INFJs will be expressing how the ENTP affects them and not vice versa. I imagine if this were posted in the NT Rationale and directed towards ENTPs, the sentiments would be reversed.

It's not that it's wrong, but I can see where that could get old fast in a relationship. It also seems to me that younger ENTPs would more likely have difficulties committing or staying settled on one person in the long term.

    Actually I think the feeling is mutual. Most of us seem pretty fascinated by INFJs.

    I suspect it has to do with fascination with the other N function in a dominant role + the unique ease of communication between Ne and Ni viewpoints that sharing the same judging function preferences (Fe and Ti) facilitates.

    This Ni/Ne dynamic doesn't seem to work quite the same way between INFJ/ENFP or INTJ/ENTP because the disconnect in judging functions often leaves big communication gaps.

    You know I love you, Sim! Actually, strangely enough, once I found out that you had some understandable intention behind what you were doing, it didn't bother me. I just wouldn't want to date someone who did that with my friends because it would make it hard for them to ever spend time with us as a couple.

    Actually (and I don't expect most people to believe this given my forum behavior), I'm pretty Fe-conscious in real life. I wasn't always, but I am now. If I were your boyfriend I wouldn't debate all your friends to death, don't worry.

    My main motivation for arguing all the time is curiosity. I want to know how people tick, what makes them think and feel the way they do, and a lot of people have to be pissed at you before they feel justified in sharing their honest opinions.

    Of course, I can't really get away with that in real life because there are serious consequences for routinely offending people just to collect data on their responses. Lots of fun on the internet though.

    This is a constant theme with you. I think ENTP's and INFJ's are both rather skittish when it comes right down to it. The thing with ENTP's is you don't see it when they first meet you. That's my take. Also, I forget most everything if it's not right in front of me. My girlfriend is the only exception I can think of. I am also bad at keeping in touch, which is why I like Facebook. Easier to just broadcast.

    I think what it comes down to is that the ENTPs know how to play to the INFJs but ultimately don't need INFJs because they get along with so many types. INFJs don't have that luxury so we're kind of like the girlfriend that will always go back to the abusive boyfriend, knowing they're just going to get hurt.
    I don't know about that. I feel like my INXJ friends and my girlfriend understand me almost better than anyone else. So, in that sense, I do need them. I am rather plagued by isolation. Even when I'm with people.

    Yes, but you're actually ISFJ.

    Perhaps the reason you don't hear about INFJs going after ENTPs is that they are naturally more likely to wait for someone to approach them and they also tend to do more solitary activities. The ENTP is more likely to vocalize their enthusiasm to a wider audience as well. I think ENTPs like us because we slow them down and we make them see some familiar subjects/situations with similarities, but give new perspectives that they haven't encountered. I like them because they tend to be enthusiastic, entrepreneurial, entertaining, make me try new things and are a source of great discussion (and they appreciate me). They also tend to naturally be approachers without seeming too clingy etc.
    Yes, I like my INXJ friends and loved ones because they do slow me down. Sometimes I think I am too much for them in large doses, though. I think I have a wearying effect on my closest. Especially if they take me seriously.

    I think both ENTP and INFJ types like to enjoy things in a comfortable way.

    I believe that. Perhaps that's even some of what I find interesting about ENTPs. They are just as fascinated as me about what makes people tick. They just go about gathering information differently than I would. It's sometimes entertaining to watch.

    Hah, yeah. I like how Ni-ers will subtly probe for information while trying to give away as little of their own information as possible. It's so different from my approach that I can't help but find it fascinating. I like how they subtly mock people with ambiguous responses that could be interpreted either way, laughing on the inside because the subject doesn't know he's being toyed with.

    It's clever. I think Ne prefers to just lay all the cards out on the table and deal with whatever happens when it happens, though. If we're mocking you, we want you (and any surrounding audience) to be well aware that you're being mocked.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Guilty as charged!!!

    Yeah, I admit I am naturally fascinated with ENTP's. I find I can connect almost seamlessly, and effortlessly. Very different in some ways (communication, activity level, etc), uncannily alike in many ways.

    I also admit although I like them a lot, I'm also slightly jaded like Wyst; I would love to share a deep and lasting relationship with them, but I guess of the two I've met, I just don't have that 'something' that keeps them there, to the extent that I might want.

    Actually I admire ENTP bluntness. I just can't bear to deal with the consequences of it myself.
