    Okay more questions:

    Dear ENTP,

    What are the disadvantages of extroversion?

    Also, is it possible that the NTPness cancels out a bit of your extroversion?

    Also, what purposes have you found for a paperclip?

    you say so much stuff that all the introverts think absolutely everything you say is true....other extroverts know better

    sometimes you may come across as unbalanced because the the process you use to make a 'people' (social) decision is visible to everyone. introverts will use the same process (reasoning) but they will come across as the stable type cuz not everyone gets to see the part where they toss and turn at night



    yeeeaaaah...im fairly introverted. its friday night, theres noone here. all i wanna do is relax, surf the web, watch a movie and sleep...if someone were to call me to out, i prolly wont pick up...hell, i dont even wanna go on msn

    that said, if i were to talk to a friend right now, i would become fairly hyper...goes to prove the jungian definition of extroversion...its not our conscious preference to be with/without people, its how we derive our energy that defines extroversion

    You've described my current situation. If a friend that likes to party called me now, I'd not pick up- just not in the mood. I would, however, love to chat with someone over coffee right now. I'd like that.

    Probably not.
    and what toppings should I put on my pizza?
    Choco paste and olives.
    And if you take my suggestion... why do you use my Ne to create impossible pizzas when you have one of your own?!

    Extraversion: I need input to function. When I'm alone for a long time, I get restless. I try to work on my stories but don't have inspiration. Only when I'm among lots of people - where I can't work on stories - I've got all sorts of visions about how it should work out.
    I need my daily dose of interaction. Discussing, explaining things, you name it.

    The NTP part makes it hard to connect to people. Socializing is boring and draining. In most social situations you can describe me as a true introvert...
    Examples.
    Teachers during the noon break making small-talk: I zone out or even go away. I've got difficulties to concentrate on people.
    Teaching itself isn't as draining as making small-talk. While teaching, there is not only people you've got to take care of (Fe), but also the subject which is interesting (NeTi).
    A teacher asking me to explain what's a vacuum? I'm enthousiastic, the connection is made, the interaction is pure E-style replenishing.

    I think, in general, an ENTP has difficulties when connection is made on nothing but "connection". This is draining and for all you know, we're Introverts.
    If there is a subject to talk about - preferably an abstract, theoretical subject - we feel connected and accepted. These are the interactions we crave and try to initiate. I feel the best whenever I've helped someone understand something.

    I guess the most difficulties stem from the fact that our extraversion is picky...

    Also, what purposes have you found for a paperclip?
    None. It's a means for reaching the reset button of your computer; a hook for a fishing game; a didactical object when combined with a magnet...
    But I didn't find any of these purposes myself.
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!
    I'm female. I just can't draw women

    Well there is that whole desire to take risks that introverts don't seem to have much of. Also the E part of me seems to be at odds with the NTP part of me at times.


    Also, is it possible that the NTPness cancels out a bit of your extroversion?
    I didn't even consider that I *might* be an extravert until my early 20's, so yeah that NTP part really does cancel out what most people consider extraversion.

    I think it really has more to do with having interests that are quite different from most people. If my environment is not stimulating then I end up retreating into my head. If there are fun things to do, or if we are able to talk about subjects that interest me, then I really come alive and you can see my extraversion.

    Also, what purposes have you found for a paperclip?
    Sometimes when you want you are explaining something and want to think through it out loud it helps to have something to fidget with in your hands like a paperclip. Also it's decent for holding papers together.

    I have an ISTJ friend who was chatting to me about ehr marketing team, dominantly ENF's I think... certainyl lots of E types...

    She say they all go hyper and bable shyte, and her I head goes nuts sulking it all in, and it goes too quick that she can't follow it.... and he collegue (accountant collegue) pointed out that the free fall was talkign nonsence, but somewhere in the nonsence is pure genuis....

    For me I get invited to places to be E type - like light entertainment - which pisses me off. I get relied on to voice things others wont, I get relied on to confront situations all the passive agressive types shy away from. I get relied on to formulate an answer.

    As for NTP compensating, no I don't think so.... I am not a party girl, what restrains me I think is lower F-ness.

    I was looking at Barbarella's avatar, which as gone all raunchy, like many NF avatars.... It struck me earlier this morning that NT's approach to expressing their sexuality is modest rather than super in your face (not always, course there will be degrees of it), but generaly speaking I don't think ENT women jump on tables and flash their knickers.... and I do think ExF types might.... (and no before I get jumped on by every F type, I don't mean consistantly, I just mean more extrover party girl types).

    If that makes any sense what so ever

    No matter how much I enjoy being alone it eventually slows me down to a low that I can't take so I have to be interactive. Being as anti-social as I am that can become inconvenient.

    Also, is it possible that the NTPness cancels out a bit of your extroversion?
    Like TLL I didn't consider the E in my NTP for quite some time.

    • Lock picking
    • Makeshift rubber band flinger
    • Earrings
    • Inventive interpretive artwork
    • Cat toy, just add string
    • Paperclip chain necklaces
    • Projectiles in serious office wars


    And that's just naming a few useful purposes.

    You are a girl aren't you? LOL

    No I'm not into girl on girl action....

    It might prove to be difficult, imagine two ENTP living together, the gas gets cut off, the phone goes down, cos neither had managed to pay the bill, the bank account runs dry all the time, because neither is mindign how much is in there.... that you do see each other for weeks on end because he is off doing his thing and you are off doing yours, and lets face it, you woud both be so far in your heads that no one baths or puts the baby to bed, the baby who never sleeps because it is being fed 24/7 stimulus.....

    Wheeeeeeeeeeew, maybe it isn't such a bad idea after all
