    And, yeah, the drawings applied I think to much younger ENTPs. They learn pretty quickly how to handle initial introductions. It's always the actual falling in love that causes the most problems. Once THAT happens, it's when the train can go off the track.
    Absolutely Couldn't have said it better myself! (Especially the needing to know the cause behind the effect -- damn you, Ti).
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    The secret way to get past it is to not care and be happily single (or... just single). But no one listens to my advice.

    That's what I was thinking the whole time I was reading this article. Yeah, ENTPs have got issues when it comes to love. We analyse it to death, we compartmentalize it, hell we don't even trust it most of the time. But that's not a one type specific thang. Ask my ISTP roommate. Sure, he's never had trouble getting a girl to sleep with him, but he struggles expressing and accessing the feelings of love he has for his girlfriend.

    The ENTP in the article wants someone with whom he can "truly" connect with. But that's not new. Almost everyone wants to be understood and to connect with their fellow man. Maybe I'm being overly critical of the article cause I have a knee-jerk eye-roll reaction to anything that implies "special snowflake" status of any one kind of person. It was an article that certainly hit home for me, but I think that it could probably hit home with many xxTPs.

    Also, I find your defensive sarcastic attitude is kinda waylaying any kind of decent discourse about this. Do you want us all to unanimously agree with you on this article or talk about it from our different perspectives? You choose.

    @ OP: what a bunch of convoluted, self-centered, narcissistically depicted, biased and highly accurate BS.

    Any input would be great.

    And, to all who read this, to clarify, I know the article is about ENTPs, but the guy who wrote it did it that way because that's the only perspective he can honestly speak about with any certainty. He'd have been totally wrong to add all XXTPs in with it.

    I didn't read it as a special snowflake type article, but an honest depiction of his experience as his own type with this one aspect of his life. It's not an official study; he nor I ever claimed it is, but his own personal observation and one that I just happen to relate to and thought others might as well. Turns out that I was right which means I'm getting somewhere, growing, learning, progressing, and hopefully taking others with me.

    Is this not what a forum is for? Discussion?

    To be honest, I didn't even read the original article fully. Must've missed the unique snowflake bit.

    The part speaking of xSxx's being a good match for us.

    Which, the ambiguity of the type in of itself right there should imply that special snowflake status is not explicitly implied...

    for many, i believe it is for being correct.

    Yeah, I got that it was being used wrong. I've seen it play out a lot on forums, etc. too, but what I didn't get was how it's relevant to the link.
    However, I'M not doing that. I'M not saying anything bad about S's at all. That has nothing to do with what I'm hoping to learn.
    I apologize in case that was harsh, I'm sure your intentions are good. I didn't criticize you, just the article. But if it gave people some food for thought, then I guess it was a worthwhile read.
