Why would an ENTP need to cheat, I mean do you realise how easy it usually is for us to leave a relationship? Why cheat when you can just get yo'self single and unattached again!
...Kay, I jest but there is an element of truth in it in that if I'm in a relationship where I'm tempted to be unfaithful then that tells me there's something seriously lacking and my relationship needs to be reassessed. Basically, I would never cheat cause I'd just leave the current relationship.
No seriously, I think ENTP's (like INTP's) are a fickle bunch who make it a point to make sure that the person they are going to be with really suits them and satisfies them in a lot of different areas. When they finally end up with someone long-term or in marriage, I think it tends to work out because the choice was well-thought out to begin with.

I think an ENTP would seriously consider if what he/she was about to do is a good thing or not. Also, the logical side of NT's (at least this is how I view cheating) is very likely to say, "If I have a desire to be with another person, then I should just break it off with the person I'm with right now and go be with the object of my affection." Logically, for me, cheating isn't an option. It's like crossing a boundary that logically should not/cannot be crossed.
Yes or no? My friend and I were discussing this tonight.
I cheat at cricket
I cheat at chess
I cheat at arm wrestling
I cheat at exams
I cheat at scrabbles just like methew guessed (the rules never said only English did it? )
But I have never cheated on my gf s.
I constantly tease them and say that I do, but I never had.
I rarely push myself in to a relationship, although I flirt a lot. When I pick a girl I make sure I could tolerate her (not love, love can come later).
So I guess after carefully choosing a girl I would never have to cheat on her since I carefully chose her.
If I wanted to cheat that badly, I'd say so. And if this urge was causing too many problems, I'd realize there's something wrong with my relationship if I'd give a fling more value than my partnership. I'd figure out what the wrong thing was. And then I'd either fix it or leave.
