I should have renamed this thread INTJ/ENTP confusion.
I would say anybody locked up in isolation (especially with no books or entertainment) has the time to come up with a meticulous plan or otherwise just go crazy.
I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

Any type can be a villain. They would bring their specific strengths to bear. The ENTP would excel at appearing to be someone else (reality distortion) while pursuing a secret life. Like the Green Goblin.

I don't know how one could confuse an INTJ and ENTP, unless the ENTP were "acting" like an INTJ on purpose.
I think the ENTP may rely more on opportunity (and/or create opportunity) to enact revenge/manipulate etc. An INTJ would already know all the elements at hand before taking any kind of action to manipulate the situation or people. The INTJ would not tolerate surprises ie: a monkey-wrench in their evil scheme.
Many ENTPs I talk to say they have had shadowy periods in their lives where they felt very INTJ-like. For some of them this was a long term affair (ENFPs would be shadowy INFJs), for some Te seems to be just a tool used under stress that can kinda get pulled outta the basement.
I met an ENTP like this once-in an INTJ shadow mode. I didnt understand him as I couldnt find his Fi. I didnt know what Fi was then, I just knew he seemed INTJ, but without the sweetness. He was a total douche. I ignored him as an anomaly until he went out to a work party and went into insane Ne mode. An ENTP? What???
Then i ended up here as I couldnt understand him based on the simple MBTI letters.
i could see how someone would confuse me with an INTJ when i'm in my introspective modes. i have to have those moments, or i'd go crazy, and i prefer to be alone when experiencing them, but that can't always happen. so, if someone stumbles in on it, they usually turn around and leave pretty quickly.
