    wait a minute.
    Isn't the entp the supervisee in the entp\infj relationship?

    yes you're right, I'm sure it's that way round.

    But as regards ENTP and INFP, my experience says it's a match made in heaven. Go figure. :gallic shrug:

    My ENTP dad can come off as quite arrogant (er, confident) and unimpressed by everything (except himself). That attitude can be intimidating.

    Lack of humility is a big turn-off for me, because I value humility a lot. I'm also wary of anyone who writes off feelings as "dramatic" as my father does. He doesn't take anything seriously...life is a joke. I take everything way too seriously (I imagine anyway, haha). I'm very quiet, and my dad also seems annoyed by anyone he cannot grasp quickly, as he usually sums people up without much trouble. For the past 25 years, he's failed to do so with me.

    I admire my dad in many ways, but I could not become close to someone like that unless they decided to put themselves aside for a moment and make the effort to get to know me & value my perspective. Otherwise, I'm just this blank person in their shadow.

    I don't know if that's just him though (probably). I can't think of anyone else I really know well enough to type as ENTP.
    maybe you take his jokes or 'manliness' far too seriosuly?

    by manliness i mean that not displaying emotions up front cuz thats what men do...i wouldnt be surprised if you read him wrong. when push comes to shove though, he'll prolly be there with you and for you

    your dad probably knows he casting a shadow and probably expects you to man up and either beat him or stand up to him

    thats how i see it anyway...

    INFj = INFP in MBTI. Supervisor = ENTp, Supervisee = INFj. So therefore ENTP supervises, INFP is the supervisee. INFp (INFJ in MBTI) and ENTp are Semi Duals apparently. Relations of Semi-Duality between psychological ("personality") types

    Sanveane: Interesting to read it from the "ideal" partner side of things.

    Udog: You dug a lot deeper... what you said has a lot of truth.

    i could go for an INFP GUY, but if i were a dude (or lesbian), i'm pretty sure we'd just have sex then go our separate ways*. one of us running faster than the other.





    *i always figured i'd be a giant slut if i were male.

    It makes me feel bad to say that I don't think ENTP/INFP could work... There are some ENTP females that are awesome for me... that I'd want to start a relationship with. An ENTP that I can handle. But I just don't meet those enough.

    Gawd, this would get so exhausting! I just can't see the two types making it work as a romance. Maybe friends with some strong boundaries up, but lovers? No, I don't think so.

    For clarification, my observations on my dad are based on his interactions with others, because honestly, we don't interact much & he didn't raise me. We have a very surface & detached relationship.

    The shadow thing was meant to describe being ignored & forgotten by my dad while he pursues his interests, not the idiomatic expression to be living in someone's shadow. That has nothing to do with what I meant...
    Anyway, I know my dad is an individual & not the ENTP prototype

    I have very little to no drama in my life actually...I'm a very quiet person who keeps to herself. Now my ESFP sister & ENTP dad....there's drama, haha.

    I agree with Udog, in that my general problem with my ENTP dad is he wants me to open up, but he cannot nurture me to do so. My ISFJ mother has been able to do that with each of us at some point, and it tells me we need both need nurturing people, but are not nurturing ourselves.
