    I get your pov, I've shared houses before and totally get that your roomies bad habits become more and more annoying as time goes on unless they are addressed, thing is if you've asked repeatedly and still aren't being heard there's little you can do to force an "adult" to do something they don't want to. His logic is crap and sounds more like fobbing you off then anything serious. You could tell him because of how gross his towel is he must keep it in his room but any path you go down here could start a war, is a towel something you want to throw down over?

    You want to close a window cause it's letting cold air in and your cold. You have a rectangluar like thing holding the window up. The window has a wooden frame and would close down almost instantly on you if you removed the box. Your too weak to remove the box and hold the window up. What do you do? Also you have no heating or A/C......

    Use something that is not part of your body to remove the box.

Since I use the towel when I am clean it never gets dirty". I believe that's introverted thinking right there?
    That's a rationalization intended to piss you off so you will quit bugging him over the issue. He knows that his towel is dirty, but either genuinely forgets to take it with the laundry, or subconsciously forgets it to rebel against what he sees as your overbearing attitude. Even he can smell the mildew.

    A friend and me have mention to him that your towel collects dead skins cell and bacteria but he still isn't convince. My guess is he has been going by this logic for years so he isn't going to change. Or maybe he has been doing this for years and nothing has happen to him so he thinks his logic is correct. What can I do to persuade him his logic is flawed?
    You're not going to convince him that his logic is flawed; chances are that he knows it already. So it's question time for you - do you want him to admit that his logic is flawed, or do you want him to wash the towel?

    If it's the former, do the following - go get a bunch of Petri dishes and agar. Tell him that you're doing a fun experiment with items around the house. Pick a few items, swipe them against the agar, and then say at some point "hey, get that towel of yours, I really want to see what kind of crap is on that thing. A week later, the dish will prove the point for you.

    If it's the latter, get some (weak) pepper spray and spray it all over the towel. He'll have to wash it after that.

    Are ENTPs very opinionated and close-minded when they are young/immature? I have a friend who seems to hate a lot of things without ever giving them a chance. She told me she hated oatmeal one time. I made some this weekend and she admitted that she had never actually tried it. We got her to take a bite, and before she could even really taste it, she confirmed that she did, in fact, still hate it. She does this with a lot of things, and I don't think she does it to mess with people.

    I remember being like this when I was younger. I was very picky about food, clothes, music, movies, etc, but I mostly grew out of it by becoming a more balanced INTJ and am willing to try just about anything nowadays. Is being extremely critical and close-minded to change just an immature NT thing? I guess I thought that the P in ENTP would make my friend more open to new things. What's the deal?

    Yes. That's when inferior Si is in control. That will go away when dominant Ne matures and strengthens. I still don't like eggs, though.

    Ne and Si are very raw when young. Inferior Si often wins when the youth can't explore his/her surroundings. Inferior Si is a pain in the behind. Especially when it supplies the info for Ti to analyze to death. It also arises consistently in situations that involve the use of bodily functions, such as eating.

    Not only does the friend not like oatmeal, she probably also has a perfectly coherent reason for not liking it. The reason will be complete nonsense, but it will be coherent nonsense.
