    I dated one once. Too E for me, it felt pushy and overly socially dominating, which I disliked.

    I dunno. I've never been involved with an ENTP romantically, but in friendships I've found that the Fi/Fe dynamic... doesn't sync.

    Typically, true to type, the ENTP's interactions with others are calculated to achieve some effect, which I can get behind, but then, every once in a while, that Fe pops out and you can tell the BS they're spouting is sincere and it's just creepy and weird.

    It always depends on the specific 2 people involved because there's a lot more to a person's character than just how they take in information and how they output it, but generally speaking, I think INTJs and ENTPs get along very well. I adore ENTPs.

    (I have been married to an ISTP for 26 years, so the websites and books aren't all-knowing on this subject.)

I mean when everyone else is laughing and playing with me and I turn to them and they're standing with arms crossed and one raised eyebrow, and I say "Well?" and they shrug enigmatically and walk off... :steam: Come baaaaack!!!

    Weird, I just noticed this thread when I was checking out one I made a few days ago, and spotted a link to an olddddddd thread I made. I guess I should give a little bit more perspective since I am here. I am an ENTP, she is an INTJ.

    Most relationships when we fight, I just roll over and go to sleep not really caring. This one is entirely different. I actually care which is odd in its entirety. It is possible the most confusing, most sexy, greatest, most amazing, hardest, we fight way too much, relationship I have ever been in.

    Her and I, are the exact polar opposites while being the same exact person, if that makes any sense at all.

    Sometimes I feel like we can both look at a situation or problem and both look at it and see the same solution but from an exact opposite angle. A good example is this. When I want to talk about some type of problem or thing we did, she will go, "No, that is done we reached a solution." I will go, "We reached a solution but I want to consider your perspective as well. Why did you say what you did? Why did you think that? blabla." This really pisses her off as I have trouble stopping when I get going, "Well why wouldn't you want to talk about it?" Etc. I am really good at needling her. We both have reached the same solution in our heads, and we have no problems picking the solution, as we both pick the same answer every single time. But I point at the problem and say, "That is the answer," then decide why that is the answer later to fit whatever need or rationality I have, or am able to twist into having. She will have probably thought about the problem all night and realized it was going to be a problem and then thought all day about it before it became a problem and she brought it up, so she already knew the answer having analyzed the details of the problem for the last 24 hours to get what her answer was going to be.

    She goes: Considers details and wants to think about them -> Big Idea/Answer -> Lets never talk about it again.
    I go: What problem? There is no problem, so don't worry or talk about it -> Big Idea/Answer -> Lets talk about the details why we just did that so we even know.

    So we each and every time we can arrive at the exact same conclusion. But she thinks about details of the problem, organizes them, and then goes to the big picture and makes her decision. I spot the problem, pick the answer seemingly out of thin air, then I sit down to think about why I just did that and organize the details.

    We are basically the exact polar opposites while being the exact same person. We pick the same answer. But we arrive at the answer from different angles.

    I will write up some more later tonight when I have more free time. I could probably expatiate on this quite a lot more.

    Can you be reaching for some effect and yet sincere at the same time? I think many introverts have this basic problem with the E tendency to try to alter the external reality. If I am trying to provoke an emotional response from you by way of my own emotional projection, it need not be insincere. In some respects, calculation can be regarded as the most sincere approach as it is emotion made real and manifest.

    Shit, yeah. It's mega hawt, ain't it?

    Oh, I always have at least one agenda.

Mostly because, about a day after I wrote that up a few weeks ago, she told me she had cheated on me. She was 21, and I am only 18, but it would have never worked as I was always wayyyyyy more mature than her. I was paying for her cell phone, and she was living in my apartment, while she looked for a job and played on the computer all day, sometimes going to class. I worked and went to class and I guess she was fucking some guy in my apartment while I was out. Needless to say, right after she told me I told her she had one day to get her shit out of my apartment. She whined and acted like I was overreacting. When she went to class the next day I changed the locks and threw her shit on the grass. Went and got tested for any STD s she could of caught and given me. Canceled her phone. Changed my number. Deleted her from my contacts list. I don't even know where she lives now, and I really don't care. She came banging on my door twice and I didn't answer.

    Severed.

    A few times I concocted some very elaborate plans for revenge, but in the end I don't want to stoop to her level.

    They included:

    1. Sending this nude picture she sent me one day, of her, to everyone on my contacts list (including some of her family).
    2. Lying to her and telling her the doctor said I had genital warts or something.

    But in the end ignoring her probably gets her a lot worse (immature woman kind of thing). And makes me infinitely more attractive to her (which adds insult to injury as she cannot talk to me).
