    You're the only ENTP I've come across whose said so. Very encouraging So please don't go changing your type

    Do you know your Enneagram?

    I am not too good with it, but the tests I did, backed up by skylights opinion on this forum gave me a 7w6

    Ending a relationship out of boredom doesn't ring true to me, ending it because of lack of growth would be closer to the truth but is a very different way of seeing things, and naturally that would require an attempt on the ENTPs behalf to move forward and resistance from the other partner. Relationships need constant growth and development.

    I agree with entropie, my history is very different to his though, I have ended all of my relationships because I could see that I was unable to be the person they wanted me to be and therefore the relationship was surface and doomed. I have never callously dumped someone, and I have never felt good about ending things but when I was younger I certainly didn't do things the right way.

    I don't know if it's boredom. I haven't totally figured it out yet. I guess I don't feel much of any emotions as far as the relationship is concerned when it happens, which may be the root cause or the contributing factor. My eyes focus in on the horizon and I can hardly wait to see what's up ahead. So I'll tell you that you're welcome to come with me, but I can see you're so complacent here. No, it's not a game.

    Those are my old ways. I think. Is there a bored ENTP support group around here??

    No, ENTPs often do not. It's a gross stereotype.

    Or don't you experience this problem at all?
    Not really. Ending relationships were more likely motivated by my feeling constricted, as if in a steel box, while I continued to expand and grow, but the box wasn't malleable with me, thus, it was trapping, suffocating, me.

    I know how to make "boring" stuff NOT boring, if I care enough (and if I've committed to a relationship, that means I care enough). Making boring stuff not boring is a fun challenge for me. So, "boring" is not the issue.

    It's the lack of growth, lack of challenge, to the point of feeling like I'm being constricted. Like the person is slowly draining me dry. It's, in a way, painful, thus, I escape/avoid. Boring - I meet head-on.

    (I am pretty quick to know which personalities/types of people, would not be compatible with my way of being, long-term, so "boring" doesn't really become an issue of a character trait in the other, but an external state of being between us/the moment, thus, easily changeable, if we both are willing)

    I hope you don't consider my asking terribly innappropriate or offensive.
    Nah, it gives us an opportunity to break down stereotypes, one at a time.

    I'm 7w8

    If we're representing the average ENTP, then, statistically speaking, those less than or equal to, mid-twenties, are much less representative of the proportion of ENTPs out there, than the rest.

    As such, what you say above, as you pointed out, is likely a "junior ENTP" phenomenon, until they get more skilled with using their other functions, and not a slave to their NE. So, speaking of the general ENTP, I would wager it is NOT APPLICABLE.

    You in your teens or early twenties, I'm guessing? The flippancy will not seem so "cool" anymore.

    Edit, to add: and that's not even taking into consideration the confounding effect of those in that age-range having much less of a likelihood of having experience in serious relationships, in the first place.

Don't you think the junior level ENTP is going to be pretty dang flakey until their Tertiary and Inferior functions become more developed over time? For Ne, isn't the chase the prize? The chase being the challenge, being the interesting part. I'll be long gone before it gets too serious and becomes routine. That's not a game, as I mentioned before, so boredom is starting to make more and more sense to me.

    No. I still struggle with this.

    Since the most growth in relationships tend to happen earlier on, once this slows down, what then? Do you direct your attention elsewhere?

    So as long as your So is willing to follow you on all of your adventures, you'll stick it out with them?

    Just to clarify, I'm not going by what other types have said. I've gone straight to the source... many ENTP's have stated this is the case. Glad to hear you're not one of them

    But what if there's nothing to work on for a spell? I guess I shouldn't really worry, my kind being so high maintenance.
