Our personal values are very simple. It's a series of questions. They are as follows:
Is this right?
Does this make sense?
Will I be able to handle this when I wake up tomorrow? (the one other types characterize as "will I be able to live with myself tomorrow?")
Does this harm me?
Does this harm anyone else?
If I were in their shoes, would I want them to do this to me?
Confirming this list.
And when the situation is uncertain, it comes down to pros vs. cons.
Does it help more than it harms? / Does it harm more than it helps?
Well, I did meet one ENTP. He wasn't really a great guy, though. Some of his traits:
- Able to do well without studying sometimes
- Undermotivated and lazy
- Extremely pretentious
- Temperamentally unpredictable (sometimes he was nice, sometimes not)
- Tended to back-stab
- Was fairly unpopular
- Had a superficial charm and class that could attract girls
- Was sometimes helpful
I can't stand smug 'out of touch with their feelings' ENTPs who fake the funk.
But I heart grown up ENTPs. Especially with well developed Fe who do *not* fake the funk.
ENFPs and ENTPs are in an epic cat and mouse dance.
The truth is, some of you get on my damn nerves like crazy with your undeserved arrogance, your socially inept and even intentional rudeness (it's not cute to anyone but you), your self-absorption, your refusal to take personal responsibility for your actions, your shocking inability to take other people's feelings into account (really? you're Ne dom??) and like some of your INTP brethren your reliance on 'but it's logical' to back up whatever just as arbitrary personal belief system or opinion that you've created for yourself.
Oh the fact though that you get away with so much unnaceptable behavior because non ENXPs buy into your arrogance or are intimidated with how mean or capable you can be or that damn Fe wing that comes in and saves the day at the last minute - that drives me crazier!!!
Oh yeah, insert here how one of my besties is an ENTP female - and yoga teacher!!! How you like them apples!??!!
But even you really annoying ENTP females get a grudging pass from me because whatever woman is a pain in the ass to the male kind gets a mini-vote from me. LOL.

No, it didn't bother me in the slightest and I thought it was utterly adorable (and hot). It may be my arrogance speaking, but I totally got the impression that most of it was about me anyways, as I get the feeling that I totally rub you the wrong way. And that's why I was kinda happy and smiley that you took it to the streets like that. Whether it was about me or not, I like people who stand up for themselves and you've shown that you are nobody's b*tch, so you just earned your stripes in my eyes (not that that's worth anything to you, but it's worth something to me.)
