    I don't know enough confirmed ENTPs IRL to come to conclusions but from anectodal examples and OL stuff -- I can see why some ENTPs could drive folks batty or get on their nerves. For me, it depends on the ENTP, because I could totally see myself being really put off or else finding a kindred spirit (it's all about the weighting of the cognitive functions people! LOL)

    Some complaints about ENTPS:

    Too kinetic energy/non-stop talking/Ne whirlwind. Will tire people out and be "a little much" for them. Or people just find strange. (Okay, this is a shared ENXP critique)

    Too much lack of filter on mouth -- people find stuff said inappropriate.

    Too 'pushing boundaries', testing people's limits/ joking in a way that people find uncomfortable and unwanted.

    Too abrasive and possibly coupled with smugness.

    Personal Anecdotes:
    I did go on a date with an ENTP dude and it was great. We had this instant chemistry and could go on wild Ne tangents together, unbridled by convention! LOL. He had this scientist meets little boy energy to him that was familiar, peculiar, and attractive all at the same time.

    Another ENTP male I met, also highly (overly) educated, was just "a little much" for people. A live wire whirlwind of Ne and word plays that took you a few too many seconds to get and he was off running somewhere else. The INXJ woman who introduced me told me that none of the people she'd introduced to him could stand him, but she just instantly felt comfortable with him. I didn't find him annoying, but I could see what she meant.

    Another woman and I both tested as ENTP in a college counselor administered MBTI test. It was for student government and we even did a 'how to work together better' MBTI type workshop. I disliked this woman much and didn't see much in common with her. She seemed way oblivious to environment and said inappropriate things or else would be disrespectful/rudely joking and then have this cutesy pleased with herself look on her face. Like she seriously wanted a golf-clap. She had a casual, flippant attitude about her which I know alarmed some of the other student gov officers (I know, just call 'em a bunch of 'S' nerds :P) It was aggravating having to be around her so much to work with her.

    I love ENTPs! But then again, I am one.

    Nope. When I asked for an explanation and tried to put across my point of view she just cut me dead and hasn't replied or spoken to me in any way since. It's ironic because she said her neurotic behaviour stemmed from a fear that I'd abandon her, and yet despite my constant reassurance that that'd never happen, she ended up abandoning me!

    Any rampaging person regardless of type is a nightmare. It's just no matter what I do, I have my fly unzipped with NTps. It's really spooky.

    Yeah, stuff like this makes me think the stage is a good place for ENTP's, the sorta lounge bar performer like Noel Coward, Oscar Wilde, that kind of thing... where the ENTP-ness that's "just too much" in person can be released on stage where it's hilarious and entertaining in its proper context.

    This is actually a pretty common phenomena isn't it? Self-fulfilling neuroses? ("I'll abandon him before he can abandon me!")

    HEY! You can't claim Stanhope. He's a confirmed introvert! (I'd bet money on IxTP, and I'm leaning toward INTP due to his perceptive ability)

    Yikes. That's a set-up if ever there was one. I don't believe I've ever left a friend behind because I thought they'd leave me first. I know that happens, but psychologically, I'm not there. What was your POV, if you don't mind my asking? Perhaps she was more attached to you than just friends?

    Really? You were always saying something to make me reconsider my position. Perhaps I just cover it up well? *puzzlement*

    When I'd mentioned in my blog about a long-time ENTP friend calling me finally after a weird unexplained absence (still unexplained at this time), I was really upset and hurt and had been unable to reach him and finally gave up because the last thing I want is to badger someone, but when he called, it's like I just wanted to hear his voice and have him tell me what happened. I forgot to be angry. I started crying, I was so relieved. I care that much about him. I just wanted to know what the deal was. And once I knew it wasn't about me (not me being needy, you would have to know the circumstances which I won't go into), I didn't care why he'd been gone. Once he called, he wasn't "gone" anymore to me. See?! Puddle of goo!! I'm that raging bull that charges and charges around but then sits in a flower patch and cries when the other moo-moos return.

    Yes. I said moo-moos.

    Well, with all the heat ENTPs are getting I'll just add that I love them!

    This seems a silly question, because IRL people don't come with a type label like they do in these forums. Further, I would hope that anybody who bothers to become interested enough in MBTI to frequent these forums would get more out of typology than new ways to be prejudiced and hateful. If you're not interested in learning more about other types with an open mind and an open heart, why even be here at all? I don't get it why anybody would hate any type at all, including the oft-maligned ESTJ type.

    I'm not even sure I have any sort of stereotype in my mind for the ENTP type, anyway. I vaguely imagine them to be enterprising, maybe prone to starting a lot of business ventures or having multiple careers. I don't really imagine much else when I think about them. All the ENTPs around here don't seem to be carbon copies of each other, either.

    Another phone call. I went puddle of goo again tonight.

    They just have no idea. How easy it would be to rip the bones from my back.

    It's hard for ENTPs to realize the deep effect they can have on others; the ones I know move [on] easily and frequently. The good news is they're so optimistic and pleasant; the bad news is they don't stay put and don't easily indulge or understand the feelings of other people.

    I certainly don't hate ENTPs, but they can be frustrating in the personal realm.
