    To provide a counter-example to the failing at school these...
    - if you succeed at school because you're good at learning, but you're no good at applying what you've learnt. I'm really good at school-like learning, but putting knowledge in practice... shudder. I'd rather be a student forever, because that's what I'm good at. Learning. Not working.

    Me I'm just lazy. I dropped out of college twice because I aced every test, but failed to turn in even a quarter of my assignments.

    When you have two chapters of a dissertation due in about a week so you procrastinate by coming here and reading this silly thread, but you know without a doubt you're going to get the chapters done on time anyway because things just tend to work out like that for you.


    Not that this is from personal experience or anything.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    Are you speaking from personal experience?

    I realize this was intended to be a light-hearted thread, so I'm sorry I felt the need to take issue with your portayal of ENTPs as taking pleasure in being arrogant douches, but it's important for other personality types who read this thread to realize that while most ENTPs have been perceived as arrogant douches at some point or another, the majority grow out of taking pleasure in it.

    There are several reasons for this. Perhaps it's as simple as life experience demonstrating that arrogant douches aren't taken particularly seriously in the workplace. At some point the ENTP needs to develop consensus or become influential to implement their ideas. If you're an arrogant douche (and happy about it) you should not be surprised if you entrench people in their positions and your enemies sobbotage your plans given the slightest opportunity.

    Being an arrogant douche is also damaging to interpersonal relationships. After repeated failures where the need to "be right" or shove your intelligence down the throats of others leads to rejection, volatility, insecurity, mistrust, anger, or resentment, the older (and wiser) ENTP, through the school of hard knocks, will start to appreciate that human relationships are valuable and not an expendable commodity used to help satisfy the ego.

    I'm not a psychologist, and I'm not well-versed enough in MBTI to say whether or not this is the tertiary function of Fe being developed over time, but I will definitely say that in my late 30s I am very concerned about how my friends, family, coworkers, peers, and colleagues perceive me. It took a long time for me to rehabilitate my reputation after being so outspoken in my 20s and early 30s.

    My career is now thriving and have a lot of influence in my workplace and my community. Whatever pride or happiness you derive from being an arrogant douche will prove to be costly, and ultimately not worth it. That's not to say I expect you to listen to me. "You know you're an ENTP when..." you have to learn things the hard way.

    You know you're and ENTP when you are able to make a deadly weapon out of a pen and a rubber band, because you were bored in class...

    Thankfully my brother missed my eye when he showed it to me... he only made his "arrow" stick in the cork board beside my head.
    Nothing can become anything if you tilt your head and squint.
