Came across this board via a "Rant on ENTPs" thread (by the way, I thought that was an utterly impossible-to-pass-up title screaming for ENTPs to "click me").. and promptly spent an entire afternoon gleefully sending bits of it to my INTP sister.... The exchanges between the INTPs and ENTPs are just so typical of what we both sling at each other every day.
e.g. watching a sword fighting drama during dinner this week, the following conversation ensued:
Me: "why do birds insist on hopping across roads vs flying, especially when cars are on-coming?"
Dad: *raises eyebrow*
Sis: "It is because they cannot take flight straight away. Birds need a running start to fly."
Me: "But you don't see a bird take a run off a tree branch, then fly, right."
Sis: "But they drop down first, before they fly, to catch the draft. That makes up for the running start. If the tree is not tall enough, the bird will knock its head and die."
Me: "But in nature documentaries, when a shot is fired at a tree full of birds, you don't see the black swarm dropping down in unison, then going up?"
Sis: "Adrenalin. It is like, when someone hides in a corner and boos at you, you don't walk, you run."
Dad: ... "Can't we just watch the show?"
Annyway.. I digress.
But the ring of truth was there, and that thread helped me understand how some of my randomness is hard for many to stomach (though I really don't mean to be difficult!).
So... anyway. Here I am. An ENTP, wanting to learn more about myself, and others, perhaps try figure out why I'm so hard to love??
Hopefully, this will be the start of something wonderful.
