    Default XNTP & debating

    how can you tell the difference between ENTPs and INTPs in the style that they debate?

    I enjoy debating with ENTPs but not with INTPs and I can't put my finger on why.

    INTPs actually make sense.

    Debating with ENTPs is easier, that could be why.

    Hahaha oh I don't know about that

    Our debates end with finding out we're arguing two completely different things. It's like a communication breakdown

    I don't know.

    Maybe because generally, ENTPs are less serious and more open to possibilities.
    Maybe also because ENTPs have the reputation to be the NT subtype which is the least afraid of their emotions.

    Maybe because it's the tertiary Fe that drives us to feel liked, however argumentative we may seem.

    INTPs often are a lot more misanthropic than us, but there are significant exceptions to every rule.

    I agree. Entp seems easier and there are more clear points that are brought up. Any idea why?

    I often tend to incorperate many underlying thoughts in a single arguement, wielding the Sword of Sarcasm in one hand and the Shield of Truth in the other.

    This often results in arguements that are fairly hard to understand to most people.

    Also as it is not always essential for me that others need to understand me. I often don't explain these meanings in detail.

    However, to any person I respect and enjoy talking to, I will be as clear as possible, often through great lengths, which can then in turn be interpretted as annoying and forceful, even though that is never the intention.

    Ultimatly, we don't really care, as long as we are happy with ourselves.

    i really dislike arguing with INFPs and INTPs, i reckon it's because of their S. they often seem like clinging to a certain principle either out of spite or for no real reason other than what may be interpreted as experience. they are stuck in the same perspective and unable to justify another view on things.

    that does make sense, Blackmail. How do you think Fi (like mine being ENFP) and Fe clash as a 4th function in INTPs?

    INTPs are serious gremlins.

    ENTPs are playful imps.
