    Yeah, it needs some revision. I'm thinking perhaps a mallet.

    Of course.
    With dreamers, pure and simple, the imagination remains a vaguely sketched inner affair. It is not embodied in any aesthetic or practical invention. Reverie is the equivalent of weak desires. Dreamers are the aboulics of the creative imagination.

    Going for a walk, lying down in bed without input,... are allowed.
    (*) I just can't begin to understand the people who read a book until they get sleepy. If I read a book, I never get sleepy before I've finished it and invented a thousand alternative endings, middles, beginnings, sequels and prequels.

    But that is not true, at least in my opinion. You can have both. When my Ti and Fi agree, nobody is able to stop me!

Maybe you can buy some Ne-enhancing potion in Weasley Wizard Wheezes. I wonder if they have an antidote, too. Anti is negative, but never mind, negative attracts positives.

    Enough? You can always come back for more.

    EAT right before you go to bed. A LOT. In fact, try to cram in dinner (two large plates worth), desserts and any additional snacks RIGHT before you brush your teeth and go to bed. You want to feel so STUFFED that you involuntarily gag, but you don't actually vomit.

    Ideally, eat 1500 calories within an hour of going to bed, and the more fat and carbs in it, the better. Ideally, down ONE stiff drink, too.

    This works for me sometimes (and I'm a tough insomnia case, so "sometimes" is a success), because drowsy=tired, and I CANNOT sleep if I'm not absolutely-fucking-stuffed-like-a-Thanksgiving-turkey. Either that or I fall asleep lightly and wake up ravenous at 2 a.m.

    Of course, eat normally during the day, too. Just add 1500 calories of MORE food on top of everything RIGHT before you hit the hay.

    I will DEFINITELY come back for more! That was very entertaining.

    Now, another question: How many flavors of ENTP are there?

    I didn't read the entire thread, so you can point me in the right direction if this has been discussed.

    My brother is a 38 year old ENTP. He is probably the stereotype of all the bad qualities of an ENTP. He cannot get his life together. He just keeps floating through life. He's not really happy. The biggest thing, is he is stuck on the past blaming his mom for his crappy childhood and will not get over it. He uses that as a crutch. So, is there anyway to help him?

    In our family we are surrounded by ISTJ's and a couple ESFJ's. So you can imagine we both clashed with everyone else growing up, but the two of us saw things very much the same. I relate to him, and why the rest of the family just doesn't understand why he is the way he is, I do understand. I feel like I could just as easily been in his position, but I married early in life and that helped me from floundering too much.

    I feel like, I've matured, and I'm becoming healthier as I get older, but he seems to just continue to flounder. Is there anyway to reach him?

    I'm going to start of by assuming that part of his problem is his Ne. Directionlessness is stemmed by not being able to use Ti to reign in Ne. He floats around from idea to idea, each as shiny as the next. If you could (though he WILL hate it) force him to choose only a few ideas, reasonable ones at that, and just have him analyze the hell out of them... it might show him how powerful his logic is, motivating him to want to use it and he can start getting himself in some sort of direction... this is if the issue is with his Ne.

    I just want you to know Mrs. Tamske that I spent the past hour or so reading all 30 pages of this thread just to make sure this question hasn't been asked BUT...



    Since you asked in the "Ask an ISFJ" thread what we thought we thought about our opposites, I thought I'd do the same and pose the same question to you ENTPs: What do you think of your opposites, the ISFJs, male and female?
