    John Beebe has a private practice in San Fransisco.

    And believes that Jung had INTJ preferences.

    I don't know why people don't think "T"s could be good therapists.

    I think any function could contribute to therapy.

    Walk in to my therapy clinic and walk out with a solution a lolliepop, and an entirely reconstructed mental system that you will need a manual to operate.

    And don't forget the free cocktail.

    You mistake my overwhelming kindness for generosity.

    Synarch, you might be happier in another profession like professional coach or business consultant where you're less likely to hit emotion. I had an ENTP friend who was an excellent coach. He's great at problem solving, loves talking and working with people and is very encouraging.

    I have actually considered that because I don't see why I should go back to school for something I am already pretty good at.

I am aloof enough not to get too involved personally, analytical enough with enough emotional intelligence to wade into chthonic emotional waters, and I am very interested in people.

    Do you think ENTP's could make successful therapists? Do you know of any?

    seriously, LMAO. but good luck on your dream though. If I was a threapist most of my patients would probably end up commiting suicide,

    Therapist is a helping profession, but i would most likely fuck with people's minds if i have a chance. But then, mind fucking is always a good way to help people.

    How would you fuck with someone's mind?

    As a T, I'm not sure if I would relate to an F therapist. So Synarch, maybe you would be the perfect therapist for someone like me.

    I do think being a life coach would be cool, and have considered it myself, it just seems a little trendy.

    every type has a different thing to put on the table

    Fs provide compassion, while Ts contribute directions
