    Default Rant on ENTPs

    This is an invitation for all members to compile information on ENTP-problem-areas in the interest of ENTP-self improvement. Anecdotes, analysises, excercises, all are welcome as long as it deals with ENTP problems/ and growth.

    And remember: Just because a type has a potential problem area, it doesn't mean that you, the actual person necessarily suffers from this problem, even if you are that type.

    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.

    Take big risks

    -----------

    I hope to see some nice contributions to this thread. I'll probably add some more myself once my hangover passes.

    All I can come up with right now is:

    1. Too likely to make random, irrelevant connections. (But that might have been covered already.)

    2. Can be crude. (But that would apply to several types.)

    I kind of feel sorry for ENTPs.

    They actually say out loud the crazy shit we INTPs think.

    I bet a significant amount of them wind up in looney bins.

    This is why I love them.

    I imagine crazy things, then just "drop them" as hints around the ENTPs and then sit back and watch the fun.

    I bet one common question ENTPs ask themselves earlier in life is: "Oops, did I say that out loud?" (And after awhile, they just start assuming they did.)

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

    i read that 1 in 100 people are sociopaths in some psychology today article a while back before i knew about MBTI; i read the descriptions and was totally like "CHRIS is the 1 in 100 that I know!"
    He was just an immature ENTP is all

    The only thing I have yet to see in myself or other ENTPs (that I've met in real life) is the social machiavellinism. I've heard that in other places and I know you're not saying all ENTPs etc, but that one always baffled me. I just don't see it as typical if at all.

    Can you give me some examples you've seen in yourself or others?

    I've definately seen one-upmanship before in ENTPs I know, but I'm not so sure about the others.

    Can't follow through on projects...good Lord, can't follow through on projects...

    My home is littered with unfinished projects. It's almost a tic, like a Tourette's sufferer making barking noises. I hate it.
