    Default an ENTP experiment

    Okay, so I actually plan to conduct an ENTP experiment a little later this year.

    I work in science so there are a plethora of ENTPs floating about. Individually they can be the life of whatever party you have. They push the boundaries farther and farther of whatever it is they do. Utterly crazyonce they turn on the party switch. Us ENFPs seem to have the same thing hiding inside but need a little more encouragement to bring it out.

    When my company has its yearly meeting later this year I am going to host a party in which I drag in as many ENTPs as possible into a single crowd and exclude most of the other folks. I will spend a large chunk of money buying drinks and payingfor transportation and whatever entertainment they choose to pursue. I am looking for critical mass.

    What I want to understand is how far and how fast they will go. What is it they are looking for? What is the endpoint? Do they at some point stop themselves or will they all end up in jail? What is the destination?

    Hopefully we can keep jail out of the picture but any suggestions?

    Well you never know it could have the exact opposite effect. ENTP's I know are ultimately shy people who have broken through an introspective barrier, if ou put them into a room of other ENTP's who are also attention hoars, you may find it just tames them all down.

    They may get deep and interesting, because they will sense the others have something really interesting to say. I know when I am around other ENTP's I'd rather spend time chatting properly with other ENTP's that nuts partying...

    Also I think a lot depends on age..... If you have a 20 something audience they will be very different from a 30s or 40's audience etc

    if you want to kick them off, put in a rullet (?sp) wheel and some chips to play with - irrespective of age they will be competitive.

    I agree with tinkerbell.
    I strive to impress, please, and amuse people. Put me in a room full of ENTPs, and I know they'll appreciate my personality and it's quirks, so I wont feel the desire to act as off-the-wall and crazy-fun as I would otherwise.

    The op has me picturing everyone turning into jackasses at pleasure island.

    Entps poke around for the interesting. So in a room full of poised people they will introduce a little chaos. In a room full of chaos they will observe and study.

    I don't think entps are attention whores.

    Also I would note that this could be dangerous for you as they could all ban together against you.if they found out your plan

    Not really, if they internally settle on a theory they could care less about validation. Bouncing ideas may seem like they are looking for validation, but truthfully they are not. Ultimately its their thoughts and actions they consider valuable unless yours are usefull, lol then they become theirs.

    maybe we could settle the dispute by simply stating entps are whores.

    It has a nice ring to it

    ENTP's are externally focused, which is slutty but not whore-y.
