    Default ENTP: What other type (if any) would you like to be?

    Hey all

    Curious for opinions on this as it's something I've wondered myself.

    As an ENTP is there any other particular type you think you would prefer to be? (A type one letter different such as INTP, or other)

    Or are you of the opnion that ENTP is the best type and wouldn't want to be anything else!

    I encountered an ENFP co-worker a few months ago and since then felt a sense of connection, we are quite similar but with ENFP being a 'softer' version of myself, more in touch with nature and people etc.

    INTP - used to think I was (but definitely E) but wouldn't like to be
    ESTP - get on quite well with in general though I get annoyed by their lack of attention to the 'wider system', implications of stuff they do and general "bloke" ness (don't know many female ESTPs not sure what they would look like)
    ENTJ - known a few and get on quite well with most of the time but I think the more 'dogmatic' approach is a bit hard to take, though admire the way they seem to be a more natural leader of people. (I have been in a leadership position and generally will be the person to 'take the lead' when no one else is, but wouldn't actively seek out to be a 'Manager' etc).

    Any thoughts?

    ENTP are fucking ace.
    If I were wanting to be anything else......maybe something with more feeling? I keep getting shit for my T basically. People, even other T's don't seem to like it. Maybe cuz I am female. I either come across as "not liking something" or "aloof" or whatever. But I don't really relate to ENFP...so maybe I would pick a J to balance the F out. So, maybe I would pick ENFJ if I were settling for something less badass.
    I wouldn't mind being INTJ for a bit as well, cuz that's pretty sweet.
    And for something completely different, I wouldn't mind trying out INFJ. Just to have mystical powers.
    Hm, I am noticing a trend that my N is being held here with an iron grip. Don't want to let that go...

    I've said this many times before - can't imagine being anyone but myself.

    ENTJ or ESTJ. Or ESTP, for the lady-slaying sex drugs rock and roll FOXINESS. I definitely want to keep my E & T, but I don't want both N & P.

    I'd have all the right tools in my arsenal to succeed. I love being an ENTP, but I'd trade it away any day if I could be one of those more-productive types.

    And I don't mean productive for someone else. I mean for myself - not procrastinating or getting distracted. I would be able to have more focus, more commitment, more blah blah ok I'm bored now, so ciao!

    Type =/= Will, Motivation, Focus, Productivity, etc.

    I know a couple of ENTJs, and sometimes I think that it might be cool to be one of those creatures. I would probably be more productive and organized, and my thoughts would entertain me almost as much as they do now.

    Or maybe ESTP.

    My reason for wanting to be an F as well.

    I suppose I would enjoy a little more certainty in my world (less P-ness), but overall I think being an ENTP has more advantages than not. A tendency towards inventiveness is a very powerful tool. It just requires more of a balance between J and P.
