    Default ENTP: To hug or hit?

    So Iíve noticed in some of my interactions with (immature) ENTPs that the nicer I am the more abrasive and shocking they appear to be but once I get a little nasty they respect what Iím saying and are more co-operative, is this the case?

    What is the best way to make an ENTP stop and reassess their actions when they are out of line?

    Oh. Dear.

    I've found duct tape and logging chain works pretty well.

    SOMETIMES. O.o

    Hug-hitting. Hit-hugging. Both?

    Woah! I just flashed back to my high school days when I thought that "nobody is that nice" I loved to see people with guts because it easily weeded out those I would or would not interact with for various reasons.

    As far as trying to make them do anything? Well you can give it to them straight and if it makes sense they will apply it. If it doesn't make sense to them you will be faced with more of what you are trying to correct.

    Eventually they will grow out of it when they get bored and know all there is to gain from shock value.

    If the ENTP is worth the time it takes to make him do that, it's impossible, because he knows that there's no such thing as out of line.


    Sorry. You're stuck.

    I'm talking about ENTPs that I have no personal relationship with and do not care about but need to work with. Not preferred but required.

    That scares me. That's what I want to avoid.


    Ok, so keeping in mind that Iím willing to be manipulative in order to achieve a desired end result, what kind of interaction appeases you ENTPs out there or gains your respect?

    Keep in mind that ENTPs have excellent powers of perception. Trying to manipulate them is a bad idea. Perhaps knowing the full situation would help us to give better answers.

    Ask them to respect what you are saying and be cooperative.

    I have no idea how that will work out.

    Naesala: Oh no, that I could never do. You see, humans are essential to the fulfillment of my ambitions.

    Reyson: You've changed, Naesala. If this is the path you've chosen, I've nothing left to say.

    In a casual setting, I've been known to come across as rude, offensive, and boisterous. If I'm playing a game of cards, I tend to get bored so I start talking smack. If they don't reciprocate, this bores me even more, so I have the urge to step things up a bit.
    Now, this could mean that in such situations I act immature, or that those around me don't understand my flavor of entertainment. I would prefer to play with people's minds than with a deck of cards.

    ENTPs have a tendency to test those around them as a way of weeding out competency. If you're being a certain flavor of nice, they may try to make you stand up for yourself by being a little abrasive. Chances are, they don't have anything against you and are actually feeling a little like they are doing you a favor. If you are acting unkind and they start treating you nicer, it could be that they are sort of proud of you for standing up for yourself. But really, this is just conjecture based on flimsy explanations of the situations at hand.
