    Default A miserable combination - beware

    I am an infp and dated an entp for nearly 4 years. He completely manipulated me and was a total psychopath. He was able to rationalize his demoralized behaviors such as watching child porn, sleeping with countless prostitutes, scheming on others to get what he wants, and always pursuing power. Power to abuse that is. I was very much traumatized afterward and cannot imagine a worse human being who is so detached and lack complete empathy. Be very careful when you involve with yourself with an entp. They may seem outgoing and charming but make no mistake - they only care about themselves. They do not go out of their way for a friend unless it's a scheme that will eventually lead to their own benefit. Just thinking about him makes me shudder.

    While I'm sorry that was your experience, your ex was an individual. To base an assessment of an entire group of people on a single disturbed individual is a mistake.

    Ouch.

    Do you realize how bitter you're coming across? I expect an apology, a fruit basket, and some pink tissues.

    I luv luv luv ENTP's. Never dated one though. They kinda scare me to date, but are so much fun. I'm sorry Lost about your break up.

    Whoa....the OP's additional info screams INFJ to me. I know he tested INFP, but is INFJ not possible?

    When it rarely happend, it had to be something HE liked or else he became very moody.

    There wasn't a subject we could easily talk about because he felt threatened every time we shared different aspects of it and discoveries. Like he let me make mistakes and assumed I could read his mind and punished me for it.
    ^ This specifically reminds me of my INFJ ex. The general tone does too. It has "inflexible", "my way or the high way", & "threatened by others' strengths" written all over it, all of which is far more common to the INFJ than the INFP. Oh, we INFPs have our faults, but they take a different pattern.

    Remember, having "values" is not the sole domain of INFPs, nor Fi types...

    Sorry for being late, I'm all into work work and work now so I don't have to think about the break up and try to forget about him for as much as I can.

    I'm also sorry that Pink Memories had such a bad experience with her ENTP but I'm telling you we are generaly great people and we do care about others but we can be tricky sometimes. Speaking of me, I'm very rational but underneath I'm crazy emotional. I understand we can appear attractive but scary to date especially to NF types. As long as the relationship is about two mature and healthy individulas, there shouldn't be problems.

    ...
    Sure it's possible, I thought so too for a long time he was an INFJ but I went through the differences between INFP and INFJ and mostly he fit into INFP. So the test said too. I have a friend who is INFJ and he is very different from my ex so that helped with my decision about his type too.

    In any case, very deep and loving relationship but very painful too...it had to end.

    I dated an INFP for a short time. We got along pretty damn well. It wasn't as bad as trying to date an ENFP woman for instance. They'll call the hell out of your phone dude. THEY JUST......DON'T....STOP....CALLING!

    LOL!
    That is so true! I've once dated for a very short time an ENFP guy. He annoyed me so much and at the end drove me nuts with his calling. It was the main reason I ditched him.

    Oh I got to the pleasure of not just dating two ENFP's, but they were both ENFP 6's. Therefore, all I ever got was CALLS, CALLS, AND MORE CALLS! I'm like, STOP FUCKING CALLING MY PHONE! Women call my phone enough as it is. I swear to God, I don't see how men date like 3 girls at a time. That would be ridiculous to me! It seems like a hellish scenario of unendless calls!

    This is a good cautionary tale for those INFPs who are always starting "ZOMG I WANT TO MARRY AN ENTP WHERE CAN I FIND ONE??" threads. I really doubt some people's abilities to actually see clearly when they are so fixated on type.

    (No I don't think ENTPs are all of the above)

    Why would an ENFP 6 call you more than other etypes?

    To answer your OP I think @digesthisickness could share her perspective. She also started an ENTP-INFP relationship help thread.
