    Default ENTPs sharing ideas vs. getting paid

    One trait I've noticed among ENTPs is we often are more interested in spreading our ideas than setting up reasonable ways to get paid for those ideas.

    For example, I used to do consulting projects where one of the INFJ sales people felt I gave away too much good information. I really didn't care, because I felt like I was impacting clients, and an extra 5 or 10% in my pocket wasn't going to make a huge difference.

    INTPs often do the same thing, and in my experience, can be even less materialistic than ENTPs.

    Overall, I often feel like I'm much better naturally at giving than taking, and notice this among other ENTPs. While INTJs are often good at both, and better able to balance the two. Wondering if others have had experiences like this.

    I think one of the primary criticisms INTJs have of us is that we give away information too easily when there's not anything in particular to be gained from it.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Right. I experienced the same.

    But I think, this is the inconsistency of ENTPs. If they talk about ideas, they feel like making them real, even though they have never build a method to use them for themselves.

    This is the scientist, who spreads his ideas to collegues, but never writes a paper. Communication as sake for itself. If the ENTP begins to use the ideas for himself, he's getting much better than all of the people, who learned from him.

    Implementation is frustrating and not all that rewarding.

    I have that "problem". Probably one of the reasons I didn't like law school. A lot of people were more interested in winning, rather than understanding. Which, given it's going to make them good lawyers, is great! However, I gave too much help when I should have just been selfish and focused on myself, but I never viewed it as an issue in the academic realm. I know it would have been a liability if I was helping my opposition in a trial.

    We just enjoy spreading our knowledge and talking in depth about things that interest us. The payment for sharing our ideas is the enjoyment we derive from having an interesting conversation, so we don't really think about monetary compensation.

    And besides, [good] ideas are not too rare for us, so we don't always view them as something to lock away. It's a supply/demand thing. If the supply is high (internally for us, that is), the product easy to make, and the demand relatively low, then why should we be receiving payment?
