    Seriously - you think this guy is ENTP??? I've never met an ENTP who rubbed people up the wrong way instantaneous like that. There is only one person I've ever met who was like that and not an ENTP. Typically its ENTP's flakeness and knowledge about so many different things that irks people. Also ENTPs don't tend to take over like that, I don't think... IMO

We fight to win, but we don't care if we lose (that much, anyway). But there are body parts scattered everywhere afterwards. Not a pretty sight.]

    No need to sweat it so much, OP.
    Yeah to all NFs out there "i dont feel that way" is not a valid argument when discussing factual data. Dammit

    Well, whatever he is, the advice people gave worked and we are getting along well. He's turned out to be someone I enjoy talking to and I've come to really like him. He is an innovative thinker and all I can say to ENTPs is that if he isn't one of you, then it is a loss for NTP kind.

    The advice was pretty straight forward, just what you described doesn't sound very ENTP-ish.... having too many ideas can drive people crazy, being too enthusiastic, or easy distracted can be issues but the ones you walk about don't sound P like really. Not an issue as you have solved it.
