    Default ENTP's, what have you invented?

    ENTP's are supposed to be inventors, so what have you invented?

    Hard to think of anything specific off the cuff, just everyday life for me really, usually entails improvizing some sort of solution to an unexpected problem, limitation or set-back.

    It's not necessarily inventing new things all the time, it's quite often just unorthodox uses for things that are already invented. Take the gutter on my roof - it came off in a storm recently and I guess most people's approach would be to go to the hardware store and get some new clips and install them properly. I did think of that, but since I automatically figure there has to be a way to do things without spending money, I just looked around my back yard for anything that said to me "I'd do the job", found some bits of rubbish I should've swept up a week ago, and turned it into the perfect solution using screws and nails I already had.

    Nothing earth shattering or innovative, I guess, but occasionally people do comment to me about how I use things for purposes other than those for which they were intended, and get away with it.

    I guess most people look at, say, a cassette tape and think it's just a cassette tape, for music that you can play on a stereo and listen to it. But I look at it and see a dozen other things you could use it for. That's why I've got bits of old cassettes being used all over the house for things like rodent medicine application (), tying tomato plants to garden canes, the funny little wheel mechanisms used to make a door-keepy-openy thing in my kitchen...

    It's not The Internet or anything, but just a steady stream of minor inventions are generally left in my wake...

    Yeah, time to back up the title ENTPs.

    I personally think ISTPs are better inventors. The practical aspect to inventing is crucial.

    I've invented a number of Internet personas.

    And now I've invented a new word, because apparently, "personas" is not a word, according to the Firefox spell checker.

    Like Sub, I just make/build things to suit my own personal life. I did some work with electrical harnessing, I designed a new mic pre-amp, a bunch of other little things to make my life easier.

    INTJs are supposed to be the Masterminds, what complex operations have you planned?

    Or what military campaign have you led.

    It's more like, patern creation. Filling holes.
    Wether its to make life easier or to understand things.

    Example: for me it's always been natural to guess most of what's inside an article just by reading the title and maybe scanning for 3/4 keywords.
    Takes me about 2 seconds to gather almost as much information as by actually reading the article (which I never do).

    I 'invented' most of my understanding of the world and (hard) sciences because they just seemed to naturally fit the general patern of things and found out later that those are indeed existing theories.

    'We' just, connect stuff we gather from our environnement together into working paterns. That's why we're known to be 'quick minded'/witty, because what we do best is connecting stuff together via a metalinguistic/spatial-kinetic conceptualization from extrapolated environnemental data.

    I don't know, does inventing a reason why this thread sucks count?
