    I think it's a common charge from introverts to extraverts that extraverts seem to have too much on their plate to focus on their particular friendship/relationship. In particular that ENXPs are 'flaky' or hard to gauge 'true' interest.
    But see, there is an assumption in that assessment- which is that an ENTP has millions of friends. If you asked me how many friends I have, I'm not going to say "oh, millions", I'm going to say "about ten." That makes a big difference. I would take a bullet for those people, and I am extremely loyal to them.

    If you can't gauge my personal investment or rely on my loyalty, it means that you haven't earned enough of my respect and trust and/or shared enough experiences with me. We aren't quite friends yet. It has nothing to do with how widely I socialize. I can assure you that I always make time for the people who deserve it.

    That said, I do call a lot of people my friend. And I reckon they actually are, I'd sure as hell be there as a friend for every one of those millions of people. The difference lies in who I would call if I needed a friend.

    how do you determine who YOU would call? what is the criteria?

    And yeah, most all the younger entps I know have tons of friends in like a big loose network and then a few very close friends. It's just how they are.

    +1, it is an emotional and convenience thing rather then a thought through decision.
