    Aren't there always struggles in a relationship? I don't think that's exclusively ENTPs who experience this. We've got our flighty attention, feeling guilty because we can't seem to invest our share while the other is always there for us, our thousand other projects... but then again, who's perfect? Bored by a relationship? Of course not. ESTJs have a tertiary Ne to tickle until it comes out.
    Moreover, since when doesn't the ENTP "challenge, yeah, let's solve this" attitude hold any more?
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    Tam, Great points. You're in a committed relationship, so in your case, I think the "let's solve this" attitude makes sense. Without a doubt, that's what I'm looking for. Where failure is not an option. That should be the ENTP motto, lolz. However, in a dating relationship where one is exploring compatibility with another, there seems to be a greater potential for "let's move on" because it frees one to explore other options and understand what they want.

    I've read that there are several levels of chemistry that ideally should exist too. Do you think that's true? Also, there's the long-term question of, "can I live with their quirks and can they live with mine?" Finally, the more one brings to the table, the less needy one becomes, and the choosier. I'm not sure how ENTP's overcome these curiosities/hurdles without actually exploring their options and breaking a few hearts.

    I'd like to put this in my signature but it's a tad bit too long. Can you rephrase it by chance a bit ?

    What are some obvious cues to tell ENFP and ENTP apart?

    - the focus of intrest: enfps directly deal with human relations and like to chatter about them, entps are more into concepts, philosophies, ideas maybe related to human relationships, but could be related to computer science as well
    - the amount of unicorns posted
    - Introspective empathy, enfps have a lot, entps learn by observation
    - Entps can be more aloof towards people or be more sensitive
    - Entps usually have at least one giant killer robot in their service

    With the ENFPs I've known I've noticed you'll be messing around, having a good time with them and all of a sudden they'll get very business-like and task-master-y. Especially when things need to get done and I'll be like "whoa! where the hell did THAT come from?"

    My more uncharacteristic "whoa! where the hell did that come from?" moments involve me getting all sensitive and smooshy.

    It's rare to find an NTP like this in real life because most of them are active on INTPc their entire waking hours.

    I've thought a lot about this subject, so I'll give it a shot.

    Mushy may not be a fair gauge because Fe can be attributed to that; particularly, in mature ENTP's. It looks like ENFP's have a much better grasp on their emotions (due to Fi?). I often see them take passionate stands on a myriad of topics: save the rain forest; save the tally wackers; save thine eyes from the ugliness. Whereas, an ENTP will jump in and make wise cracks or hmmm about it. What also stands out to me is how ENFP's express moodiness and sensitivity similar to an INFP. I'm neither moody, nor sensitive in that way. I think that ties in with what Allegory said about something triggering ENFP's to suddenly taskmaster; which may be mostly internally value driven for them. I will definitely taskmaster too, but it manifests itself in a different fashion, where there should be a pretty clear distinction from the outside looking in. For example, I'll taskmaster after time has passed to where I've reached a breaking point with illogical conversations (gone in circles), breaches of common goals that are killing the team morale, pessimistic/defeatists attitudes that resist my attempts to turn them around, someone taskmastering me too much, and other such stressors.

    In addition to what's already been said, there are Fi (ENFP) vs Ti (ENTP) clues. ENTPs form opinions by thinking through what looks logical according to the information they've gathered, and might not offer an opinion on something if they don't feel informed enough to have a logical opinion. Although some might use Ne to fill in the blanks and not worry so much about informing Ti.

    My impression is that ENFPs are likely to be more opinionated about things that touch on their values, and might get angry if you disagree with them on something that violates their values. That is Fi. Everyone does this, but it seems ENFPs do it more than ENTPs.

    They'll also challenge you differently in an argument. An ENFP is more likely to see a differing opinion as being something only an asshole would think, while an ENTP is more likely to see differing opinions as illogical or stupid. But the more mature of both types might converge to a more live and let live attitude.

    Edit: Also, I think both types like to argue to learn more, but both types (especially younger ones) may also try to "win". An ENTP will think they won if they see their own arguments as more logical, and an ENFP might think they won if they had more to say and were more passionate about it, or if they've dismissed the other as an asshole.

    Both types tend to be very playful, but I think ENFPs are more playful, and usually more sensitive to other people's feelings, especially in ways that they can relate to.

    (ENFPs, feel free to correct me if I've misinterpreted you. )
