    The classics

    Can't follow through on projects

    One-Upmanship

    Social Machiavellinism

    Intellectually superficial and unreliable

    Over-competitive, pressuring others for fun

    Conjure up far-out connections between ideas that as perhaps not really connected (Foucault is a good example here)

    Prone to grow bored with a stable partner

    Impatient, ever so very impatient

    Poor external judgment, better at understanding others points of view than their own.

    4. "and neither should anyone else this whole country is full of..."
    5. perhaps an anecdote to prove my point, which I am of course, incontrovertibly correct about.

    Once again, I am stranded between being an INTJ or an ENTP. Every time I'm around people, I'm extremely bouncy and witty like an ENTP, and people think I'm really funny. But at the same time, I never really had an interest in things like parties -- all of my relations took place at either work or at school. I'm pretty much a loner, but I don't think strangers have ever perceived me as an introvert.

    I'm so confused...I hate not being able to identify myself...

    It's interesting you say you self-analyzed yourself since birth. It indicates that you are what you personally analyze which it typical of introverts. However, given that your personality type is accurate of you (and remember I'm just a newbie to the MBTI theory ) I would think you would want to integrate other people's analyses as well.

    Oh well, we're all so different aren't we?


    You are way off man. I am an ENTP and I think you are way overanalyzing some of her statements.

    There is only so much you can understand about someone else's personality type from what you read and what they say or do. Only someone WITH that personality can truly understand their motivations and predict every possible type of statement.

    To be more concrete. I do not like defending something that I know to be true about myself to someone I am not very close to.

    If you are a stranger I care less about wether or not you believe me, and if it is a routine topic for me, I'm not interested and will just tell you to fuck off.


    I think you might be having trouble admitting you're wrong, but like I said, I can't know for sure. I can only ask you for confirmation.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Default The Problem with Judging the type of Others

    I stand my ground on this one that hotmale and maverick can't claim to understand the complete picture of being an ENTP without being one. There are really complex interactions that go way beyond the descriptions provided on the internet and even from us ENTP's.

    The logic both of you are using is flawed anyway. For example:

    Premise 1: ENTP's usually aren't defensive.
    Premise 2: Digest seems defensive.
    Conclusion: Digest isn't an ENTP.

    The key words there are usually and seems.

    That is the problem with judging the type of other people. You can't be sure.
    Don't believe everything you think.

One may feel like they are going back and forth between a relational dessert and then a relational lush tropical jungle. You have to be able to be an emotionally equipped camel in relationships with them.

    How true!!

    That's the most accurate description I've read here, so far.

    It implies a very uncommon form of self-awareness, something I've seen so far only in ENTPs or almost.

    Heartless meanies.

    And Sub, I'm surprised at you, you're such a cad.





    me... i'll criticize you... but i'll still feel bad about it on some level... even if I can't help but continue to criticize you.




    So you can actually feel okay/good about self-loathing? Weird.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
