    Default ENTPs get no respect?

    I have a friend who is an ENTP who seems to not get any respect, especially from a couple of ESTJs we know. At first I wasn't sure what to make of him, but over the past year of getting to know eachother I've learned he's a really nice/good guy. What I don't understand is why people get so down on him. As far as I can tell he doesn't do anything wrong, but he seems to be the defacto-whipping boy of this group of people. What's worse is that the previously mentioned ESTJs, one more than the other, are openly and unnecessarily critical, rude, and all around mean to him. I'm not a big fan of ESTJs to begin with, and I get that he's an easy target, but this is ridiculous! Have any ENTPs had similar experiences with ESTJs and other temperments and how did you deal with it? Has anyone seen this kind of behavior before and how was it dealt with?

    How intelligent is he relative to the ESTJs? I would think an ENTP with equivalent intellect would be able to hold his own against a couple of ESTJ attackers.

    It could be the Ne goofiness rubbing the ESTJs the wrong way?

    A folk round here know how much I LOVE SJ's - I've been on the receiving end of a few ESxJ who were SO stupid - but felt they could behave badly towards me. I had one trying to brief a job that had no purpose.... I kept returning her back to the point of what she was trying to achieve and she didn't know...

    in fairness although I (and several of my team) loathed her, she was also prone to coming and appologising when she figured out she was stupid.... But still her learning curve was hell.

    I think this. And I absolutely love ENTP's!

    I have an ENTP professor who's brilliant but she is sooo goofy. I love her but her teaching style rubs most of the class the wrong way and they dislike her/ make fun of her in class/ laugh at her. She honestly doesn't seem to care or notice though. Maybe your ENTP doesn't care either.

    ESTJs hate me O_O
    i swear, some ESTJs in my middle school were the sole reason i ever typed myself as INFP back then..
    A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always “lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments.” He concluded that “There is more than one way of doing good science.”
    It was Watson’s form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve “the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA.” It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.
