    Default ENTP...gone haywire?

    mods, please dont move this to that type confused section just yet...im specifically looking for Nx viewpoints

    Im an ENTP, no doubt about it. The descriptions match. The cognitive functions, as far as I can identify, match...

    BUT there have been a fair number of times when I would come across as an ENFP in my decision making. At first, I couldnt explain it and so I reread the descriptions but ended up with ENTP cuz:
    -I can identify with it
    -I have like no Fi

    I think why my decision making, at times, comes across as ENFP is because I decided a long time ago (way before I knew bout MBTI) that though I can be a hardcore NT, it would be healthier for me and the world (in the grand scheme of things) if I always do the 'right thing' which is consciously choose to care about other people as well...basically, not being a complete asshole. Doing this doesnt always make me happy but I do feel content in knowing I did the right thing regardless of the consequences.

    Or maybe its just a well developed Fe?

    OR, on the other end of the scale, could I be an ENFP with a needle pricking me on the side that makes me somewhat of an asshole towards everyone else?

    I should mention that I come from a fairly traditional and religious background where god is the ultimate doer and karma plays a very important roledont make this a debate bout godplease.

    Anyone else have similar experiences?

    Yes.


    And I feel the same way you do, regarding morality.

    Yup. I've been called an ENFP numerous times by other NTs because what's 'right' matters to me as much as what is correct. The difference for me is deciding to care about what's 'right' is clearly a choice for me.

    Dude, how old are you?

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Not bad, you should be developing your Fe anyway. Also, my roommate is ENTP; he's 30, but has had a well developed sense of right and wrong for a while.

    I realized that I'm not an ENFP pretty quickly, Just spend a while talking to them and you see the differences. They are pretty similar types though, I've heard people say that it's difficult to type ENXPs because they are rather rounded (or something like that). I still have some crazy dude running around trying to convince me that I'm an INFP!?! (although it's still a possiblity -damned perception!!!).

    I'm trying to understand Fe atm (not trying particularly hard mind you). I remember seeing something about Fe being the function that ENTPs revert to when people start to disengage from them, which results in them wanting to be liked by others more or something?

    I'd like to point out that there are actually religious INTPs around, I'm sure ENTPs can do the same thing.
