it's rare that i don't get along great with them, but it seems to me that ENTPs tend to enjoy the company of INTPs more than INTPs enjoy the company of ENTPs.
I recently dated an ENTP. I really liked him, but I found I couldn't get close to him. He seemed to be more interested in making sure a) I could put up with his need to do all of his projects and b) I could handle his intensity. I felt like he liked me, and he was always talking about "us" in the future tense, but he ran hot and cold, withdrawing a lot. I ultimately felt like his primary relationship would always be with himself. It wasn't great for my self-esteem, so we're no longer seeing each other.
I don't know many ENTPs IRL, but have noticed on the forums, I get along fabulously with female ENTPs, while the (younger) guys come off a bit cocky. I can't be around cocky for any length of time. The guy I dated was older and a little more humble but still really self-focused.
heh. you may find your thoughts to be different after you succeed.
I doubt that. ENTP's seem to have these excited initiatory first impression but Inferior Si shows later on. I guess it's just me and my fact-filter but no, I think many INTP's are like this which makes me wonder how INTP's and ENTP's can have such a positively relationship.
As far as I can tell, this is one of the biggest differences. ENTPs often put out an idea before it's fully baked, just to play with it Ne-style before asking Ti to take a look at it. INTPs very often will not even really be able to express what we're thinking until we run it through Ti. Ti is how we make sense of things. If an ENTP asks me a direct question about how I feel about something, I sometimes feel like a deer in the headlights, because maybe I haven't thought about that thing before. If you talk to me about it for a while, ideas will start popping up, but I need some time and some context to feel comfortable talking about it. Especially because you guys are intense.
Yes, this. I often feel uncomfortable if I'm asked to speak about something I haven't had a chance to think about in advance.
I don't know enough ENTPs IRL to comment on the OP beyond that.
