    What digest said. Debating is never seen as arguing in my eyes, others often perceive it as such though. Doesn't sound right.

    Debating does not equal an argument to an ENTP. Perhaps you are perceiving it that way.

    However, if he is getting personal, then he is likely just an immature person instead of only exhibiting ENTP characteristics. ENTPs like to argue, yes, but the mature ones know their limits and how to stay within them. Its his issue, not the issue of ENTPs at large.

    I used to personally critique someone during the course of discussion when my Ne caused me to see some flaw in a person's thoughts or personality that did or would affect their lives. Usually I was trying to help that person. Eventually I realized, and most other ENTPs do at some point too, that it doesn't work and the argument is not worth it. He seems to have not developed Fe yet. How old is he?

    When I am excited about something I am thinking, I can have a tendency to start talking faster, raising my voice, and trying to get everything out that is running through my mind at once even if it means interrupting others, and it often comes off to people as me being upset. Perhaps that is happening too.

    Could be weak Si? The possible pride he feels that is "supposedly" himself consistently correct. The pride of "correct" one.

    But I assume you mean their vigor of standing behind their thoughts and ideas.

    It's just that their Ne is catching on to things and they're bursting it out like mad, because with Ne, you have to spurt things out, before you've lost it again.

    It's like a eurekagasming. (Can we make it into a word, please?)

    At least in my discussions with ENTP's, I've always looked at it like that. Never like they are trying to win some duel with me for the sake of winning a duel. It's just that they are coming to thoughts that they had a moment before that not yet reached. And it can be exhilirating.
    That's an awesome word!

    unless, perhaps, your style of speaking has been grating on him for a long time, and he's been holding it in, and now he just doesn't give a shit anymore.

    yes to all this-debating for entps is always fun, a bit pointed, quick, and highly entertaining for them (and me but I am a little odd). But not mean or nasty-at least not on purpose. Is it about specific topics or just topics you happen to stumble across?-Id say if it was repeated on a specific topic, that sounds personal, not fun.

    Either misperception on your part, immaturity on his, or something subliminal.

    I am super easy going and have no intentions of starting an argument and when we argue I'm not even aware. To me we are just talking or exploring a topic together. Not only does he perceive 90% of our interactions as arguing, but he thinks I'm insulting his intelligence by not assuming he knows everything in the entire god damn universe. What.The Fudge.

    Can someone explain this to me?
    ENTPs are not generally people who are pissed of easily. I like to debate though, and recently I found out it's very funny to throw people of by making personal comments (but never insults or attacks).

    DUEL!!

    Are you being condescending? That's the only way I think you can insult him when you are both apparently exploring a topic together. Have you ever asked him what is going on?

    People who are condescending to me who I do not need to have harmony with for work are treated in kind.

    He perceives me to be condescending merely by not assuming he knows everything in the entire world. He genuinely feels talked down to the moment I explain anything, including my feelings.
    With dreamers, pure and simple, the imagination remains a vaguely sketched inner affair. It is not embodied in any aesthetic or practical invention. Reverie is the equivalent of weak desires. Dreamers are the aboulics of the creative imagination.
