Alright. I'm confused about this. And I need all you ENTPs to help shine some light on this.
I've had an ENTP best friend for years, and I dated another briefly. From my exposure, I was under the impression ENTPs were just as free spirited, drop-everything-for-something-more-appealing as I was. I'm questioning this now that I've been dating another for 8 months. Granted, I always knew NTPs tended to be a little bit more scheduled and a planner than SPs were, but I figured ENTPs were pretty dang close.
So based on conversations I've had with my current ENTP about this, he seems to be more of a planner than I would have expected. He feels that in order to get all his wide variety of interests in, he has to schedule constantly. However, one of these things he is pursuing future career and takes very seriously. We very occasionally butt heads on this because I assume (granted, I shouldn't.. I know this ) that he'll drop everything for something fun I want to do. Or if I didn't give an exact time for something I mentioned I wanted to do in a day or two, he'll plan something else instead. How I function is to expect something is coming up and just make sure everything I have to do is flexible so I can just move it around when it happens. This isn't an issue with us, perse, I'm just curious as to if this is how ENTPs -really- are or if he's just an exception. Either way, any kind of input will help me understand where I'm assuming things when I shouldn't be
So the bottom line: How do you ENTPs fit in all your wide variety of interests? Do you feel scheduled or do you feel free spirited? Or somewhere in between? Are there any specific areas where you're a planner and others where you're super flexible?
