    My experience of my brother and myself as a pair has led me so far to find that we both use the same method to search for information, but we use different methods to filter it. Quite often we both do the same 'aha!' at the same moment, we both perceive the same things or in the same way, we both love to brainstorm and we're masters of the rapid fire anything. But where we tend to disagree is with our evaluation of the data we perceive. Whilst I tend to look at things from a more sorta communal, practical and perhaps dutiful sorta point of view, he tends to look at them from a more individualist point of view. He takes things personally a lot more and though we're both awful at taking criticism, his reaction is hurt feelings whilst mine is more like curiosity or indignation if I perceive it to be inaccurate; his concern is to be liked, whilst mine is to be accurately perceived, not caring so much whether that then leads to someone liking or disliking me.

    And yes, he can be much crueller than me and tends to be able to justify his own behaviour more easily, he can easily shake people off who attach to him if he doesn't like them or find them interesting, whilst I tend to feel a sorta duty to stick with them and work with them and stuff, regardless of whether I like them much.

    I can't say how much of this is ENTP/ENFP and how much is just me and him.

    Just as long as you recognise that you are in fact wrong, this will be proven at a later date. I mean it's obvious... you're not even an INTP or nothin
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    What's all this, "ENFPs strive to be liked", business?

    Having people like me has never been a goal, or pursuit of mine. Although I do like/enjoy quality attention from a select few, I cannot stand being center stage, or receiving unwanted attention.

    And substitute, I relate more to your description of yourself, than that of your brother's.

    Only when i've had too, like having to turn my heart to stone to leave my ex-wife.

    I've described it like this, ENFPs bend and blend to accomodate others, too much too esily really. Then when that accomodation intrudes into our values, we stop accomodating and people see this as harsh, a sudden cold change, when really it is a response to people continually not appreicating or not caring that we are compromising...

    My experience of ENTPs and I'm including my other best mate here, is that they are cold calculating, heartless, guiltless, manipulative, and crafty... they will say something which you think is what you wanted/needed to say and then later you'll realise that in the exact wrods they left room for them to deny having made a commitment or some such...

    ENTPs live by desperately wanting to be amazing, or viewed that way, and with the option of plausable deniability about all things especcially commiments that limit their freedom of action

    My old boobless best friend was sort like this, sorta not.

    I'd say he wanted people to like him just because it got him in the door, so to speak. If he was antagonistic with any group of people, they wouldn't open up. It helped in his goals to understand humanity and all that.

    Actually, the people he was antagonistic with he had no desire to get to know/understand. And he never really cared about repairing those bridges.

    But being liked was never the main objective. I don't think he got any big ego trips off that.
