One of my best friends is an ENTP. We get along very well. I learned a lot from him about being more outgoing and making things happen. He has great follow-through for a P preference type. We used to bounce ideas off each other a lot and synthesize them into something workable. Of the pair of us, he was more big picture and I was more detail oriented ... even though among most people I am hardly detail oriented. Sadly he moved to another state a few years ago. I still miss him.
I worked with two ENTP guys. I actually didn't know when I first started working with them (I didn't really find out until quite a while later actually) that they were ENTP, but we hit it off immediately. Our boss was an ISFJ and really couldn't stand the lot of us and to be honest we got very little done (our jobs involved desk work and housekeeping, it was at a college), but we had a lot of really good discussions on just about anything. That was what I liked about both of them was just that any topic of discussion was open and there was never any difficulty starting or maintaining a conversation.
One of the guys in particular was pretty misunderstood by my other friends and just other people in general. They thought he was really weird and he was, but he understood me which is an odd feeling. He also didn't pay much attention to most people--he tried to talk to some of my friends for even maybe five minutes and failed, but as soon as I came along we could talk for hours it seemed about nothing and yet everything. So I just came to realize there was something there my other friends just couldn't see. None of my other friends were NTs mostly SFs and NFs.
But anyway, I don't know if I learned anything from either of them per se at least not a take home lesson, but I thought they were both cool guys in their own way. Neither one of them were particularly extraverted, but they were definitely ENTPs. I was clearly more introverted than either one of them, but in a conversation an outsider would have never known.
So basicly you're saying we shouldn't take you seriously and place you in that little ignore corner, leaving you to your solitary sobbing?
(This is for my amusement as well, we're just much more subtle. )
lol, We do love our subtleties, it often goes over most everyone’s heads (except most INTJs if not instantly as an afterthought), yet most of the S's consciously notice the additional sparkle in our eyes and light smirk when this happens...
