    Lightbulb My Fellow ENTPs...

    When you meet somebody new like a guy, girl, dog, elephant, whatever...

    Do you mentally figure out what "type" they are?

    Not directly by asking questions, but like by noticing their behavior, characteristics, belief systems etc.?

    Are you usually right?

    How can you tell who is who?

    (While anybody is welcome to reply, I'm curious on hearing the ENTP perspective on this)

    Yes.

    I'm right 8/10 times.

    I do it, not sure if I'm ever right though. Some types are just obvious though. Why just ENTPs?

    Nupe, it's a learned skill that one has to master over time. I'm still new to the MBTI thing so I haven't gotten it down yet, as such, it's far from perfect yet. There's also the fact that types are far from perfect... there are ENTP's alone which act completely different from each other, to the point that it's difficult to see any relation at all between them.

    There's alot more to this than just type, so I'm not sure I'd ever end up doing so, since if I did, it'd become a bad habit that I couldn't stop.

    I'm pretty good at it. Even before I learned about the individual functions (Fi, Ti, etc) I was always in the right ballpark. Now that I actually understand the system in more depth it's even easier.

    I'm trying to curb the knee-jerk MBTI typing though.

    EDIT: Not that I'm an ENTP...but whatever.

    Don't think it matters poppy, think a ton of people on the board of various types tend to type people by reflex. Don't believe it's an ENTP thing at all, maybe they're checking if ENTP's think it's silly? Who knows, I've no clue at this point, it seems rather specialized of a question for something that's far more about how well yeu know the system, and how strongly yeu believe it. No clue!

    nope not something i do or will ever do. i personally hate being put into a box (you're a _____, so you must act like_____) and definitely have no desire to do it to others.

    He must have only asked ENTP's because we've basically taken over the NT thread for the last week and wanted to keep the ball rolling.

    And yes, any type and identify others types just as well anyone else. We just use Ti powered by Ne.


    P.S.
    SerengetiBetty, I've officially put you into three boxes and thrown away the keys.

    yes but only more recently, and I'm pretty accurate when I've checked it out.
