    Well, you have made a lot of intps answer to your thread; this is normally counter-indicative for being an entp and only works if you start a thread with "All INTPs have a small p-ness" .

    Jokes aside, I do too think you are entp. You dont need to voice super-critical opinions or challenge the status quo to be one. What I too think tho is that you have a strong opinion, in oposition to you being weak-willed. Meaning I dont think you are weak-willed.

    The problem tho then is, tho everyone lately seems to pick on entps for constantly creating trouble or like the intps call it ( to not think things through before voicing them ), I personally always felt that this kind of trouble or challenge to the status quo is imperative for new insights on a matter and therefore for the creation of new ideas.

    So if you have a strong opinion as an entp, but always try to keep everything fluffy with everyone ( as long as they dont step outa line ), it can ( but must not ) create the double-face for you. Like with a guy, who is always picking on you, but not really seriously and you always laugh about his jokes to be nice to him, until he cracks one when you think: that's the last straw and you go all meany on him.

    I dont know if you have this problem, I am throwing out ideas and am assuming; for me it was an important lesson to learn, like when in Battlestar Galactica, Colonel Adama told his son that his problem in life is, he hasnt taken sides. And tho I was all "I'll never take a side, why do I have to" in that moment, I more and more come to understand with age, why it could be important for ones own well-being and good-feeling to take a side from time to time.

    Very good thinking!
    You're the first NTP besides my father that I have interacted with that seems to get this.
    I've always wondered why the very people who seem to have no problems saying almost anything that can be considered rude etc have a problem with real conflicts.
    Like... Here you'll get a made up example.

    RandomPerson1: Hey, ENTP! RandomPerson2 killed my entire family and raped my three dogs before killing them too.

    ENTP: Yeah, but I don't want to be taking sides, i'm gonna be friends with the both of you.

    <Sound of the WROOOONG-button>


    Well, that was exaggerated. But. Fact remains that this can destroy, no... It will destroy your relationships with others.
    If you do not learn to understand how people feel and that you can't have the cake and eat it too.
    You'll have to prioritize some people before others.
    Avoiding conflicts altogether never helped anyone.
    Hell, even Gandhi knew how to pick a fight.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    Whoa - slow your roll there. How do you know what an ENTP is "supposed" to feel like? How could you know that? There's no way you can possibly know what others' subjective experiences are, so how can you say that yours is "not right"?

    Hmm. Why do you think you feel different?

    Thing is, I experience those situations and emotions too. If there's a male-female divide, it's perhaps that women can be more honest and forthright about it. Men must compensate and deflect/dissociate from these emotions, so as not to feel inferior to their peers.

    It's a tricky business.

    Nah I think you're way off. In fact, it's the lack of being calculating that makes it hard for me to see Trin as ENTP. They seem to have a natural cynicism that I just don't get from her. At all. Of course, she could just be REALLY good at hiding it. And she's never competitive. She almost comes off as a tough-minded ENFP, like ergo, or Cze-Cze.

    You know I've never bought your ENTPness, Trin, and that's not just because I think you're awesome.

    Tho this could just be another example for "when the single mysteries of the world are more complicated than theory allows them to be".

    Calculation I dont see necessary as a mandatory ability for an ENTP that would be mandatory if you've choosen to work with the dark side. And the other thing, I think trinity is quite good at being cynic, at least she usually gets all the cynical jokes, it's just up to her if she wants to step on other peoples shoes with it.

    It's a tough call indeed, I am tho personally convinced there's a lot more to trinity we havent seen on this forum and probably never gonna be. And that shady side hidden in unvoiced mysteries, which makes it intresting to get her to know, feels entp to me.
