    Default Can An ENTP Be Like This?

    Believe it or not!
    My tendency to change types has some reason to it.

    For some reason, I feel that I'm more of an F in college and more of a T at home and more extraverted at home than college.

    I realize why too.
    I feel that I can be myself at home and not have to worry about losing my friends.
    In college, I do fear losing the friends I have made. This causes me to be more timid and cautious-being more tactful but more calculating.
    I don't even think it's an Introversion thing. I just really don't want to be alone in college and do not want to do cause any rifts between the friendships I have made.
    With my high school friends, I can be more of an 'ass' and more outspoken and I feel confident that I won't lose them as friends- it helps that they are outspoken and arrogant for the most part too...

    Is this normal for NT's?
    It's weird. I feel more like an ENTP now but in a week when I go back to college- I'll feel more like an INFP.
    It sucks and almost makes me not want to go back to college. I know what I am but I don't feel confident that I'll keep many of the friends I have in college if I act like myself- especially since many of the friendships have begun with my 'false image'.
    So, what does that mean?

    It means you are ENFP.

    What makes this more NF than NT?
    Is it that NT's care less about 'losing friends' and are more comfortable with being a 'loner'?

    Partially. In your post your concern about hurting the friends you made came through as much as losing them, that is F more than T.

    But my assessment of you as NF was also driven by the way you say you've changed. Your dominant function seems to be Ne, and you've been assuming that your auxiliary one was T, but people actually develop that second one in their teens through their early 20's and it sounds like that's what has been happening to you. You are developing F. Often young men seem to default to T and develop F (if that's their natural tendency) and women do this the other way around due the way society defines gender roles. Just my two cents.

    It is entirely possible that you are just wearing a mask to be accepted, my assumption was that the mask was from your teens and the 'real' you is showing up in college, but it could be the other way around.

    as an entp i never really cared much about hurting people. Truth before feelings, that's the way.

    Was your T strong in test? Did you really answer truthfully, if you really care so much about what others think and do you could have a biased image of your own personnality during tests. Just an idea.

    Anyway, it's not like it's wrong not to be an entp.

    I think I may just be one of those 'NT wannabes'...
    However, there are so many stereotypes out there.
    This sounds arrogant but I feel confident that I possess better reasoning skills than most of the NT's I know, which many (such as Keirsey) claim is the hallmark of the NT, so I'm confused.

    Your OP made me think that you must be ENFP.
    Don't bother too much of stereotypes and be happy with yourself no matter what your type is.

    You could easily be ENTP (I think you are).

    The only way to tell would be to differentiate between Ti/Fe and Fi/Te. If you use Ti and Fe, it doesn't even matter if you use Fe more than Ti, you are still ENTP.
