    The problem with this kind of question/discussion is that it devolves into a moral judgment about a particular personality type. But personality types, like emotions, are morally neutral.

    Are ENTPs competitive? Absolutely. But the morality of the competitiveness is separate from the competitiveness itself. It is a personal choice how one uses one's competitive gifts....for the good of another or to harm them.

    E.g., ISTP's are gifted when it comes to the use of weaponry...but the choice to use that gift as a source of good (policeman, etc) or of evil (terrorist, etc) is separate from the type itself.

    Our personality type (which is after all, fluid) never excuses us from our moral choices, just as neither talent nor beauty, or any other "gift," does.

    Funny (oddly).

    I'm from Richmond VA.

    Understood. That's why I found the additional Richmond coincidence oddly funny. After all, I would expect to find other ISTPs here, but not necessarily those from an identically named city.

    It's actually deeper than that. Identity is a socionics concept. Their typing system is slightly different from MBTI. Most ISTPs on this board are SLIs, the only LSIs before you came along is me and MaybeLogic. But ML doesn't like to get his hands dirty so he's not very interesting.

    Ah. So what is the difference between SLIs and LSIs?

    There are lots, we actually don't share much at all. You'll see it eventually if you stick around.

    I checked out the basics. SLI sounds more like me than LSI. So your rarity here remains intact. Although I can see why you thought me more LSI given the tone and content of my initial posts.
