    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.
    Hmm. Good point. I tested ISFP in 2001 (I was 15 years old, so it wasn't actually reflective of who I was --more of what I was expected to be and so I played that role up in an exaggerated way), INTJ until 2005 (grudge-years), INFJ for a while (when that Fe kicked in big time), ENTJ/P ever since 2006.

    I can imagine just how confused you must have been meeting a shadowy-ENTP. We're nuts.

    Do you think you understand him better ever since coming here?

    This particular guy-yes, but he is 45. Lots of ENTPs I have met went through this like you did-when they were younger growing into themselves.

    This guy kinda got stuck there. He has become a lot healthier in the last six months as he has become more confident. Now he is kinda NeFeTi like and you rarely see the INTJ like face. He also can be very heavy Ne when out partying. But it isnt really the beautiful version of Fe that some of my older, very responsible ENTP men have. He doesnt have the same ties back into the social group that my other older ENTP men do, so he isnt always so ethical. But he is an exception, not the norm.

    Do you ever get *stuck* in one of those introspective modes?

    I'd say that all NTs have the capacity for being an evil genius.

    I think I have the full capacity for being an evil mastermind.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    absolutely. especially in the winter months when i can't get some fresh air, sun, etc. they seem to help a lot in bringing me out of my own mind when it starts to feel claustrophobic in there.

    however, otherwise, i actually need those times. i'd go nuts without them. it's when it's as if my mind has hit 'repeat' that i know i'm way too stressed to get anything good out of it.

    Ugh, they're horrible. They do stop after a while though.

    I'm going through it right now. I hope to god I don't get stuck for too long. I'm awkward as hell like this.

    Shimmy: when do they stop for you?

    ENTPs gotta be careful when we go into i-need-to-be-by-myself mood...careful about the subject about which we NeTi...if there is absolutely any negative feeling associated with the subject, we can go into burn'em-to-the-ground mode...but only till we go out and meet with people (or play soccer, something thats fast paced requires us to be there 100%), then we can calm down a bit.


    that said, ENTPs with a developed Ti can usually not only control that negative Fe but analyze it and be one more rung up with self-development

    when do they stop? youll get bored...feel lethargic...maybe eat too much...feel like taking a vacation cuz you think you are stuck in a rut...just want to get the hell away from there...youll feel claustrophobic. go out and feel the wind, let your sensations tickle a little...go out for good food...even though you are only going to buy groceries, take the time to dress up and look good. make the most of absolutely everything you do.
