Thread: ENTP mistypes

  1. #1

    Default ENTP mistypes

    Hi everybody!

    I hope you are all well with the pandemic and all.

    I've stumbled across this article regarding entp common mistypes and real profile:
    The Truth about MBTI — The Real ENTP

    As a very strong N with an uncertain type myself, I'm curious to know what you think about it, either from personal experience or from your observations.

    It seems to me that intuition, especially when very strong, can mask other preferences and make typing more difficult.

    He's spot-on about the stereotypes, can anyone actually believe that people are like this? Well, actually, yes, here's proof of that. Damn...

    About the description itself: Better than most type descriptions and he does a solid job at using the function framework without actually mentioning the functions too much. And he doesn't fall into the trap of "Ne makes him do this...". I'm kinda surprised that he doesn't understand the INFP mistype, it's probably the most obvious one (unhealthy ENTP losing confidence in his logic). I still get negative vibes from the name of his blog, it comes across as arrogant know-it-all (and fits the stereotype that the criticizes). I also took a further look at his tumblr page, it's quite chaotic and more a lose track of his thoughts and interests, at least it let's me think that the author is an ENTP.

    You all realize the author was being sarcastic in his post, right? The entire bit of writing reeks of sarcasm.

    He's trying to characterize ENTPs as shy know-it-alls, and anything but an insufferable genius.

    If you'd like for me to give you more insight, I'd be happy to.

    As an ENTP myself, I'm happy to dispel rumors and misconceptions about the type.

    Well, I had a general look at the blog and... Well, yeah, so so.

    One of the recommended threads below actually reinforces the stereotype he presented before.
    He also carries the idea of ENTP being an ambivert type, yet although I have not posted yet, i disagree and by my measures these are ENFP and ENFJ as far as I remember... XNTP got a really great range in E-I although, including some ambiverts as well... In rest I pretty much agree with @noname3788.
