    Why would that be the case? Or are you just speaking from personal experience?

    I dunno.. I just use Kaku because he grabs my attention quickly in a way extroverts usually can (he just always seems excitable, i guess), and makes some of the more difficult topics in science very entertaining (doesn't happen often with me). Cool guy either way.

    Because ENTPs lead with Ne, rather than Ti, meaning they're constantly regurgitating ideas and then refining them. INTPs lead with Ti, meaning they refine and perfect their knowledge of a concept first, and then set about changing it. ENTPs can handle large systems the way INTPs do of course, but it seems to me most would lack the patience.

    An ENTP could be very Ti oriented though, right?

    This guy (frezned) on youtube is so Ne though it's not even funny. I could see him not exactly sticking with much

    I'm not seeing how the distinction you've described here has anything to do with the scale of the ideas with which each type works. Are you saying that ENTPs can't concentrate enough to handle big ideas?

    Sort of, but it's more about preferences. An ENTP would generally prefer to work with many smaller ideas, whereas an INTP would prefer to tackle the task of understanding a single, more complex system and then improving on it.

    These are kind of fluffed up descriptions, but the basic emphasis on "what demands immediate action" vs "generating possibilities" is true enough.

    Ne-dom
    Words, ideas and possibilities spew effortlessly from them. Words are their best friends. They dance around ideas, the more, the merrier. Imaginative, spontaneous, original and enthusiastic, they have a knack for seeing other possibilities, other dreams and options. The world is never as it is but as it could be, as if it were but an artists sketch begging for colour. They initiate change and often are prone to trespassing a few known boundaries to take themselves and others where no one has been before. The status quo tends to lack inspiration.

    When inspired, they are fearless and tireless. Their energy will know no limits unless red tape takes over. Routine drags them down. Their faith in possibilities and belief in the benefit of change often inspire others to follow. They are challenging, ingenious and innovative. They will give their best to what appears to be an impossible challenge, a place unknown to man or beast.

    They use metaphors, stories, images and analogies to make their point.They love theories and often shape their own. They see patterns emerging. Keen improvisers, they are rarely caught off guard, there is always something up their sleeve. The sky is the only limit.

    They are sometimes entertainers, artists or otherwise engaged in public demonstrations that allow their ideas to bloom. Their greatest difficulty is not in initiating projects but in choosing among so many possibilities, setting realistic boundaries, establishing priorities and correctly assessing resources.


    Se-dom
    Extraverted sensing types are pragmatic and realistic with a zest for living life to the fullest by way of multiplying experiences. Always on the alert for what needs immediate attention or what might provide a bit of action, excitement or entertainment, they engage quickly with their environment. They seek and enjoy freedom, are good-natured, direct, and tolerant and are often the ones who provide levity.

    They have a way with dealing with people on a very equal platform and are not easily star struck. Rank, celebrity and status mean little when they are face to face with another individual.

    On the job, they appreciate having the right tools and are quite ingenious at finding ways to fix and repair things with dexterity. They love variety and are curious and adventurous, enjoying the unexpected. Their brand of extraversion is one of deeds rather than words. As long as things are moving along, they are happy. They like to keep things simple and immediate, going with the flow. They are helpful in very concrete ways, providing the correct tools or specific service the person requires. They often have an uncanny ability to respond appropriately in cases of emergencies, often having excellent reflexes. They act without thinking. They also tend to have natural mediating skills.

    They are attuned to the environment and the myriad colours, textures, sounds, beauty and the sensuousness of it all. They are quite graceful and agile while moving through their environment. They love having fun and if things are too quiet they may provide the entertainment or distraction. They learn by imitation and are keen observers. They teach through example. Their attention will always go towards whatever provides the keenest impression on their senses.

    The Se-dom descriptions sounds more ESTP than ESxP. The Ne-dom description is more neutral, but seems to lean towards ENFP.

    I think you're ENTP. What do you think?
