    Default Am I an ENTP or an ENFP?

    Last night a possibility stuck in my head. I had this crazy idea of being a mistyped person. Instead of being an ENTP, I thought I was an ENFP. So I sat in my bed in the middle of the night and analysed each argument I had of being an ENTP realising that I had enough to come to a logical conclusion that my initial typing and test results as ENTP stood correct. But I think that an outsider' s opinion would be helpful. So I will offer you some of my arguments:
    1) I love debate and generally arguing with a person, even though I may not believe what I say.
    2) I mock others openly in order to see how they will react. It usually doesn't end very well.
    3) I don't particularly like emotions and feelings and I try to stay as emotionally detached as I can.
    4) I love attention. When I was a child I loved winning the attention of a girl that I liked. I preferred the attention rather than the affection.
    5) When a person is crying I usually don't offer my support. I prefer to learn the problem and head for its solution, as I find it very effective.
    6) I consider myself ambitious. I prefer personal success and leaving behind a legacy, rather than having a normal life with friends and family.
    7) When I was a child I used to cry when I was stressed but now I have stopped doing that.
    8) When I have a problem I sit alone in my room and analyze it for hours 'til I have reached to a point wherein cannot analyze it further.
    9) Sometimes I may do things only because I have to do them, nothing logical on them (that's what got me thinking about my type).
    10) I crave the respect of my fellow men as I find it more important than love.
    11) I have many friends who describe as witty, intellectual, eccentric, slightly arrogant and egocentric.
    12) I like reading a book, philosophical, scientific, social or literature and loathe discussions about relationships and love.

    I'm pretty confident that you're ENTP, although I'm not that knowledgeable about mbti. I think that even though most entps may not like the idea of being motivated by "shoulds", they are at least somewhat guided by them. In every entp, there is an inner tension between expectations (Fe) and the need to subvert them. That's what gives them they're exceptional ability to generate unique and sometimes off-kilter solutions to human problems. Ultimately, a well- developed entp will need to find some kind of balance in that inner tension. So, maybe your concern/discomfort with following expectations is a sign of development rather than being incorrectly typed? But , forgive me if I'm completely off base.

    The username alone could provide me the same info but...


    The only reason I'm even commenting is because it just doesn't get much more ENTP than your OP.

    yeah the name really was enough.

    You honestly sound like a ENTJ to me. I don't really see a lot of preparedness for the future, thinking around the corner of things and generally removedness from the "here and now" (you are that, it's just not the focus of your ego. It's like a tool to you than anything). I just see a direction mostly in the vain of a love for efficiency and a desire to push on forward through life. A lot of what you say is mostly what I envision a Te-dom 3 to be like.
