Thread: Ask an ENTP!

    I find it amusing when people get super sugared coffee type drinks and then ask for "fat free" milk/cream. If you' going to consume a small bag of sugar, a few extra calories are the least of your concern

    And I think nerdgirl recognizes the fine line between challenge and hopeless case.

    ^ Okay, okay, so I'm humoring a tree hugger friend... we're skipping towards a lovely oak tree. I offer to hold my friend's fat free triple mocha latte. So while friend is walking towards tree, I sneak a sip of the latte "hmmm mmm". Then, I glance up to see my friend in Mother Nature's embrace and I laugh so hard latte shoots out of my nose. -trips over tree root-

    ...the fat free triple mocha latte launches into the air and hits the tree.

    No idea. Are you talking about things your friend use to borrow from you?

    You want to scare away/ turn off ENTPs?
    Don't show interest in them. Talk about your life/family/the weather, the most boring details first, and expect them to remember them. Be weary, because ENTPs are good at twisting a boring conversation into an interesting (to them) one. Especially the weather can lead to nice abstract topics (the sort of thing the ENTP likes) like "what's the difference between weather and climate" and "how to predict climate for hundred years in the future when you can't predict the weather for tomorrow" (I'm glad to explain this one to you!),... Don't engage in the debate, because an ENTP thrives on debate :-)

    I now have an unholy urge to talk about that new York shore show and how global warming caused the recent earthquakes and how I just booked my hair stylist for an appointment on dec 11 2012.
    If you really don't want our reactions, don't display such an amount of Ne Nonsense. You see what happened: you'll get a flood of Ne back, interspersed with some Ti checkings of the "you ARE just joking, aren't you?" sort.
    After all, I'll get to climbing into my television set shortly, to see whether a two-dimensional image is able to resist the power of the remote control.

    Haha, so true. When I explained my "Theory on How to Live Forever" my ex-ENTP laughed his ass off first and then started telling me, "baby, you KNOW this can't happen right?.... right?!" And every so often I would bring it up again and he would demand I cease and desist because he couldn't handle that much nonsense at once.

    However, I do actually enjoy a fun debate... although I ofTen don't employ actual logic in my debates... which some N friends n-joy (ahah) and others do not. The weather versus climate..... I am intrigued....

    What? No logic?? That's not a debate, that's just goofing off (which is of course allowed). If I know you're just joking and don't really believe the nonsense you're saying, I'm able to tell my Ti "it's okay, we all know it's not consistent." Otherwise I'm inclined to lecture you and point out the mistakes.

    I've also experienced that my nonsense stories tend to follow a more rigid pattern than the ones of some of my friends.

    The weather versus climate..... I am intrigued....
    *puts on teacher hat*
    Climate is the average weather. While some winter days are hotter than some summer days, on average the temperature in summer is higher than the temperature in winter. Weather is temperature, sunshine, rain, clouds, wind,... on a specific place and at a specific time.
    It is very difficult to predict the weather. It's almost as difficult as predicting the outcome of a roll with dice. I like to compare it with dice. Take one ordinary six-sided die.
    1) Throw it one time. Before you throw, try to predict the outcome.
    2) Throw it a hundred times. Before you throw, try to predict the average of all outcomes.

    Did you predict 3,5 for the second experiment? Were you more or less right? See how easy it is to predict averages, even if it's almost impossible to predict the outcome of a single experiment. That's why it's difficult to predict the weather for tomorrow and still possible to predict the climate for within a hundred years.

    And global warming? If the average outcome of the die turns out to be 4 instead of 3,5, aren't you going to suspect the die is loaded?

    Climate is to weather as temperament is to mood.
