    Default Who are you ENTPs

    Christ, I have found myself attracted to an ENTP :steam:

    So, there I was minding my own business when this group of people came and sat at my table (I was at a fancy little orientation, but this is not important.) Directly across from me was this guy who I have never met in my life and I really didn't have anything to say to him... Then the conversations started. I didn't do much of the talking, as usual I was just observing with something I would call minimal interest. The guy across from me was making jokes and having a great time and then made eye contact with me and heart went ABLAZE

    Ok, Ok, it didn't really go like that. Anyway, I found myself really attracted to this guy but found myself to be at a lost for words anytime I am around him. But seriously, this always happens with ENTPs!!! Whether I am attracted to them or not. Something about their wit, non conformity, and integrity all bundled up in one person make me feel inferior with no real hope that any of them could ever find little old me interesting.

    Enough about me; lets get down to business. I want to know more about you ENTPs. Honestly, I would take any information from anyone.

    1. Which person are you in the crowd? (Y'know, are you the center of attention or the listener...maybe the catalyst that keeps the conversation going?)

    2. How do you think you appear to others? (If you are not an ENTP: how do they appear to you?)

    3. Why are you guys so awesome?

    4. What do you think of INFPs?

    5. What sets you apart from the other NTs that can help discern you from them?

    6. Finally, if there is an answer for this I have to know: What does that penetrating gaze mean? It drives me nuts.

    Hmm, maybe this should be a what you love about ENTPs thread...

    #6) he is analyzing you and possibly applying pressure on you to get a reaction. Either way he is thinking about you but this could be very objective. Or his eyes got confortable in a particular spot then you sat down and he thought "oh well my eyes are confortable here and I dont want to blink."

    1. Which person are you in the crowd? (Y'know, are you the center of attention or the listener...maybe the catalyst that keeps the conversation going?)

    Yep, the catalyst that keeps the conversation going seems to fit me well. I'm also the one who seems to be absorbed in an idea or stirring up people.

    2. How do you think you appear to others? (If you are not an ENTP: how do they appear to you?)

    Random is a word I hear a lot. I guess I am pretty unpredictable. I'm also very absorbed in my ideas and quite oblivious to the outside world at times.

    3. Why are you guys so awesome?

    Because we offer something different, people can be so cliche at time we keep things interesting. lol

    4. What do you think of INFPs?

    Intense is a fairly good description. I enjoy talking to NF's, their spiritual side is fascinating but if they became overbearing I'd need to escape.

    5. What sets you apart from the other NTs that can help discern you from them?

    We can have a "relatively normal" conversation. We arn't necessarily shy, but rather quite indifferent to others. If the ENTP you are interested in actively seeks out conversation with you it's generally a good sign because it means that they find something intriguing about you.

    6. Finally, if there is an answer for this I have to know: What does that penetrating gaze mean? It drives me nuts.

    It means they are attempting to "read" you. Using extraverted intuition, ENTPs are good at reading others reactions, and as a result they are probably trying identify what you're about.

    1. Which person are you in the crowd? (Y'know, are you the center of attention or the listener...maybe the catalyst that keeps the conversation going?)

    Depends. Sometimes I'm the centre of attention, not because I wanted to be but because other people just sorta latch onto me and want me to carry them along on my energy. Sometimes I'm quiet like the INTP, listening and observing, yet unlike the INTP, i'm sitting within the circle rather than to the side of it.

    2. How do you think you appear to others? (If you are not an ENTP: how do they appear to you?)

    Varies hugely. I've been accused of being completely evil and manipulative but then I've also been told by someone (just this week actually) that I'm the one with the highest sense of ethics of anyone they've ever known. People tend to have an opinion on me anyway, rarely just say "oh I dunno, he's alright I guess". Love me or hate me I suppose, but notice me. They probably think I act the way I do expressly to get noticed, but I honestly don't. Most of the time though I feel like I'm just a pest and I'm probably getting on everyone's nerves so I really should shut up. I just can't!! LOL

    3. Why are you guys so awesome?

    Ah y'know... cos we don't try to be?

    4. What do you think of INFPs?

    The word 'hot' doesn't even come close. Infuriating sometimes because their damn self critical nature means that no matter how much I try to tell them and show them that I think they're AWESOME they still hold back thinking I find them a nuisance.

    5. What sets you apart from the other NTs that can help discern you from them?

    Just friendlier, more chatty and light hearted, I reckon. "Sillier".

    6. Finally, if there is an answer for this I have to know: What does that penetrating gaze mean? It drives me nuts.

    Penetrating gaze? You mean the one where I've just been thinking about something, staring in a random direction and not realized you're in what would be my line of sight if I was focusing at all? lol

    Or the one where I'm trying to look cool and like I'm scrutinizing you when in fact my knees are like jelly and I'm thinking "please like me you awesome INFP!"

    Its funny because I ALWAYS break eye contact with ENTPs. I feel overwhelmed.

    Should I dare ask if they are actually good at reading people?
