    It doesn't matter what type he is, let the matter go, you're just pushing buttons to make yourself feel good.

    Trust me, it's the alcohol speaking. I get like this when I'm drunk as well. Trying to convince people of trivial things I wouldn't normally bother about. I'm sure when INTP comes in here after he wakes up (with a headache and a thirst, the size of which has never been seen before) he will have either forgotten about this thread or he (or she for that matter) will no longer feel as strongly about the subject.

    I see what you mean, it's that reboot that forces you to reconsider your perspective and think clearly

    I reckon it'd be a typical ENTP thing to do. Keep all options open, meta-analyse the data, only make a decision if you have to, and even then wait until the very last moment to decide.

    What's so important about the type of someone else?

    But just to answer the question... I've seen more ENTPs thinking they are INTPs. Myself included.
    Why?
    Because we're bad at socializing. We can't remember the details (eg. names...) needed for making contact to people. If extravert was synonymous with "people-minded", I don't think there would be any ENTPs.
    But extravert is more than that.
    "Needing input to be productive" and "craving attention" are other tell-tale signs of extraversion... and ENTPs (at least this one) score high on those.
    The functions are another way to discern between E- and INTPs.

    IF we can use Ne in communication with other people (discussing theories, improvising nonsense stories,...), we won't feel drained and won't feel the need for an I-style replenishing. But these occasions are less frequent than the usual smalltalk and socializing. So yes, an ENTP will answer yes on the question "after prolonged contact, do you feel the need to be alone for a while?"
    If the question is "Even if you're having a good time with other people, do you still feel the need to be alone once in a while?" my answer would be a solid no.

    INFP! I've been convinced of that, too. Not in these terms, because at that time, I didn't know about MBTI. But I was convinced that being reigned by emotions and personal values was the right thing to do to be a real human being.
    It didn't really work for me. Wonder why...
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    I have worse reclusive tendencies than my INTP friend. He seems to me to have constant phone calls and text messages and such from friends. I've seen this in other INTP's, too. When I socialize I feel like a loser and get existential and self-conscious. But, I really do feed off the energy of a group. I get more ideas from other people. But, it feels like losing contact with myself and joining in the external world.

    Yeah, socializing. I think it can be incredibly draining. (I'm one of those ENTPs who would never consider the possibility that I was an extrovert, for all the reasons Tamske listed.) And it's funny- if I'm having a good time, a good interesting conversation, I can go on forever-a them shutting the place down around me sort of situation. But if it's tedious, dull, about mundane stuff, I want to cut off my ears and dig myself a good, sturdy hole in which to hide.

    Ne was what I always related to, even when I was considering INTP, INFP, ISFP, ISTP. It's kind of stupid, really, but I think Ne can get so carried away with the possibilities that I could look at any of those descriptions and think, "I can fit into that."

    apply it.
    counter him rationally.
    give him a shred and let him extrapolate.

    i personally wouldn't bother.

    That's another ENTP thing I think. Dominant Ne could mean that everything that happened could be interpreted as something, therefore everything you do can be interpreted as something typical related to a type.
