Yeah, I have found that I drive min of 120km/hr at all times regardless. When I got pulled over for excess speeding, all three times were around 3am when I was going over 140 km/hr when I was the only one on the road. Since losing my licence a few years ago, I learned to put cruise control on when I am driving really late at night, or on long stretches of highway when I am the only one there.
ENxPs' last function is Se. And I think driving is quite an Se activity. So if ENTPs are shitty drivers, which according to this thread doesn't really seem to be the case, that might be why.
It's a miracle that I'm still alive, in one piece and not paralyzed. My truck has a few minor bumps and scrapes, and one minor dent, but it's a miracle considering that I drive like a tweaking NASA racer fleeing a robbery. Stops the hearts of all my passengers.
I won't lie, I can be aggressive (but not stupidly reckless), and combined with the fact that I also drive a huge, red lifted Dodge Ram pick-up truck and I have a penchant for loudly blasting rock or opera with the windows down, I manage to get all the little rice rockets on the road out my way.
However, I know the limits, and like I said, I'm not stupidly reckless. I'm not going to go speeding on a narrow road on a cliff when it's raining.
I'm 20, so I only have about 5 years until this shit turns stupid (or more precisely, when acting stupid actually becomes stupid), so I'm taking advantage of my youth.
True. But it's not reckless when we do it. It's called 'testing limits'
Another reason about my nervousness with ENTP driving is when he says things like "Trust me. I know what I'm doing" I'm not sure if he's trying to convince himself or me.
Oh, you, no question. He probably doesn't feel like he needs to be sure, himself

Is it? I thought it was Si!
I'm not sure that driving necessarily is an Se thing. I'm all about the Ne when I'm driving. I think my lack of Se is more than adequately compensated for by the fact that, whilst I'm not really good with "in the moment" stuff, I'm incredibly good at predictions, short and long term, and with juggling many things at once. When I drive on track (and on road, but I notice it more on track as you can really get going without having to keep stopping at lights!), I feel like what I'm doing is... well, I'm making one assessment after another of what will happen NEXT, and immediately adjusting in order to cope with it. By the time it's happening, I'm extrapolating the next bit. And so on.
I'm male and over 30, FYI.
