ENTP partner

They typically need a partner who is emotionally resilient and doesn't take offense at their intellectual challenges. ENTPs can be unreliable as they follow their inspiration, wherever it may lead. They have little interest in order or routine, and may neglect mundane household chores as they pursue more stimulating activities. ENTPs also love a good debate, and an intelligent partner who helps them expand their mind, is definitely very desirable for the ENTP male. They Are Logical, But They Don’t Ignore Emotions. The ENTP male is extremely logical and prefers to make decisions based on their knowledge. Although two well-developed individuals of any type can enjoy a healthy relationship, ENTP's natural partner is the INFJ, or the INTJ. The ENTP's dominant function of Extraverted Intuition is best matched with a personality that is dominated by Introverted Intuition. By Dr. A.J. Drenth. As discussed in our ENTP personality profile, ENTPs are among the most versatile, open, adaptable of all types, displaying a broad array of interests and activities. Because of their openness and versatility, they can find love and compatibility with a number of different personality types. ENTP relationships typically endure a lot of change and growth. This Myers-Briggs personality is described as being extraverted, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving. The ENTP has an impulsive nature and will typically seek a partner with whom they can explore new possibilities and achieve personal growth. Developing Your Relationships as an ENTP. To grow in your ability to love and care for your partner, here are some things you can do: Don’t debate unnecessarily. You are a natural debater, so you like to challenge the logic of things, including your partner’s ideas or proposals. In your mind, making your partner think is your way of guiding ... If they are with a more sensitive partner, this can be an excellent way for them to find another quality that they can work on together, making this weakness yet another opportunity to be creative, challenge themselves, and to deepen the attractiveness that this sense of progression brings to their relationships. The ENTP girlfriend wants a partner who is capable of growing with them. They need someone who can inspire them to keep moving forward and to learn more about themselves and the world around them. ENTPs love to learn and are excited about reading and researching new topics. Having a partner who helps them feel more eager to absorb the knowledge ... In an INTJ ENTP relationship, it may be difficult at times to manage this, especially if you are making an effort to be more outgoing for your ENTP partner. Unless you communicate your need for solitude, you might become overwhelmed and anxious with all the socializing. Your ENTP partner will definitely appreciate your witty give-and-takes. When dating an ENTP just go with the flow, and enjoy the best ride of your life; overthinking will take away all the fun. Rule 4: Be practical. It is imperative for you to be realistic, as ENTPs can be overly spontaneous, and may not think things through before doing ...

2020.10.13 13:02 Adaline_B ENTP female looking for a man (19 years old)

Hello,
Since it has been challenging for me to find someone with common interests and framework for life, I thought I'd come here. :)
I could be classified as the definition of an ENTP. Most of my energy and happiness comes from dissecting, combining and coming up with new ideas, even when this is done without a direct purpose. My favorite areas of discussion are in politics, philosophy and psychology - though mostly in a way that is difficult for many to understand.
What I greatly dislike are discussions where only data collected by someone else is used. My favorite ways of collecting information are through observation, trial and error and "intellectual hunches". The latter referring to the habit of, say, assuming the possible reasons a study may come out a certain way without having yet looked into the study itself.
An ideal partner for me would be one who could discuss various topics with me, even without a clear aim. Someone who is able to come up with original ideas, not just regurgitate an article or research paper done by someone else.
Some other qualities about me:

2020.10.13 04:51 hm5219 INFJ here with a question for the ENTPs of this sub. How important is it for your partner/SO/significant other to intellectually stimulate you?

Not saying they have to be the smartest person in the world, but does their ability to keep up with you and have conversations matter?
Btw, y’all are awesome and I need more ENTPs in my life.

2020.10.11 06:12 HumanFindingTruth ENTP x INFJ marriage: Heaven & hell. Advice?

I'm an INFJ and my husband is an ENTP. We have been together over 8 years, most of which have been amazing due to us being fairly compatible. I wanted to ask for advice here and have also x-posted to infj for additional insight. Our last two years have taken a turn in the opposite direction due to breakdown and lack of follow-through in communication.
We have had a lot of breakdown in our communication over the last two years, and it only seems to be getting worse. I know one breakdown in communication always leads to more, so I prefer to fix the issue immediately or agree on a time to address it so it isn't left to brew. I have tried talking with ENTP about issues at hand, but he seems indifferent and avoids the topic because he doesn't want confrontation. For me, this seems to be an immature way to handle anything in life and only sweeps the issue under the rug to worsen and arise at a later point in time.
This has left me feeling as though our marriage is failing and I'm the only one working at it. I'm a take-the-bull-by-the-horns type of INFJ. I'm direct, honest, and often fairly blunt with those I'm close to. My husband has always admired my combination of kindness and softness paired with the direct honest communication. I'm not sure what has changed. He doesn't seem to want to work on our marriage or improve communication even though he knows it leads to unnecessary problems. It is draining for me and ends up leading to additional unnecessary breakdown.
Often times, after bringing up an issue to talk about, he shuts down or ghosts me for a day or two and then resumes communication as if nothing happened. This leaves feelings of a lot of unresolved conflict. I know that ENTP's prefer to sort through their thoughts and feelings on their own and in their own time, however when it involves someone else (me in this instance), that does not solve anything. He always avoids conversations that are not superficial, and it makes me feel unseen, unheard, and shows his lack of care towards conversations/issues and our marriage. It makes me feel as though I'm taking to a stranger and I know longer can have a deep or thoughtful conversation with him.
I have suggested professional help such as counseling, but my husband does not believe that is necessary and shuts the idea down.
As an INFJ, it hurts when my partner cannot be transparent with me and meet me head on about an issue after he's had time to process. I am open to work and talk through anything, however he drags his feet and shuts down when I try to talk through a problem or communication issue we are having. To me, this is seems to be behavior of an immature and underdeveloped or regressing ENTP.
We have even had a couple of discussions about divorcing, but haven't followed through. I told him that if he was ready to move on, I would forgive him and accept it. I do not want to divorce my husband and lose my best friend, but I refuse to have a partner that won't put in effort and hustle with me. I know relationships have plenty of highs and lows, but the lows lately have been outweighed the highs and have been more frequent.
I feel as though I'm the only one showing up for our marriage. I feel ghosted.
Any advice?

2020.10.11 02:02 Marc9564 What did you realize about yourself in 2020?

Well hello there ENTPs, one of your own, 25 year old specimen here.
So this year, world went to shit, and I had a shit ton of realizations about a shit ton of things. So I thought I'd share them with you, and ask about your realizations this year so far. So here we go with mine:
1) Initially I thought the lockdown would be my wet dream work-wise, boy was I wrong. Turns out, I hate working by myself, and enjoy being around people and working in a team. Also, I hated 9-5, always thought freelancing would be my jam, turns out, I kinda appreciate the interactions of the workspace and how that routine kept me from being a total sloth.
2) Designed and built something I thought I wanted to pursue and turn into a business. Turns out that after building it, I just didn't care about it at all. I enjoyed building it, but that was it, that's where the fun ended, and so did my motivation. Probably going to pursue UX design just based on that new piece of information about myself. I realized I enjoy designing, building, and strategizing, and for executing the business side of things, it'll be better to work with a partner in the future, someone who enjoys the hustle.
3) This one was a shocker, I always thought I wanted to be a leader, turns out I don't give a shit. I don't like being led, but have no interest in leading either, it was just in my head. Although I still do end up leading more often than not, it's more out of need of the moment than desire.
4) I was too worried about 'making it' by 25, I went into panic mode that I wasn't rich enough, I was gullible enough to buy into the nonsense that you need to be a millionaire by 25? Nuh uh you don't, all it does is take happiness away from your present because you're so fucking stressed all the time. Took me a few months after my birthday to get my head in the right place. (The aforementioned project was seemingly born out of this panic, not sure what bullshit I fed myself at the time I decided to pursue that)
5) Love, oh man, I have the best girlfriend ever (INFJ), we've been together almost 3 years. My greatest dumbassery in my relationship was worrying too much about the future. I don't want kids, she is undecided. I'm indifferent to getting married, she wants it. It took away from the present, because I was too worried if we were wasting each other's time. I don't know what the future holds for us, but my new perspective is that we're happy right now, we'll figure the rest of the shit out when we get there. Even if we break up, it'll be amicable, because all cards were always on the table, no lies, no deceptions, and we still stayed because we were having an amazing time together. Honestly, this was born out of my fear of getting older. If we break up at 30, then what? Nothing you dumbass, more hook-ups until you find someone, even if you don't, who cares? Growing older doesn't make you unfuckable to hot women. This one was stupid, but insecurity can be a bitch.
6) Money is important period, even if it's not my motivation. It's the license to live like you want to. I need financial freedom to maybe try and pursue something more meaningful to me. I don't come from money, and it's the first barrier to smash for me. One of my deepest desires is to do something good for the world, help people, I've always wanted that. But I won't be happy if I don't have money, I won't be able to alleviate others if I don't first alleviate myself. Maybe that makes me a dick? I don't know, but at least I'm self aware about it now lol
7) Which brings me to, I was too stuck up on finding and enforcing my purpose. Then I realized the irony of it. Life's meaningless, yet we spend our lives searching for one. The keyword is 'meaningful and fulfilling to me', that's what my custom purpose is, it can range from 1 purpose to 10 purposes, and they can change based on how I grow.
So that's it for me. Just really wanted to share them haha
What have your realizations been this year so far? I would really love to know!

2020.10.11 00:18 GabzTheGamer What my type

Describe yourself... (No personal information that could be used to identify you or anyone else)
I’m a very creative person who likes projecting my creativity into my hobbies like writing stories, making edits or solving puzzles. Sometimes I just be in my own world and I’m someone who tries to be nice to people
What do you hope to achieve by finding your type?
Just closure lol I feel like I’m a definite xNxP (leaning towards ENxP) and less confliction
Do you work or go to school? If so where and what for?
I’m in high school and I do the basic subjects + my subject choices which are Computer Science, Business Studies and Mandarin Chinese
If you could do any job without worrying about pay, what would it be?
Graphic Designer, Creative Writer, Psychiatrist
Are you a free spirit or do you play by the rules?
If the rules put anyone else in detriment or just plainly just seems unfair or illogical then I will try to make sense of the rules to whoever’s made them or simply not comply to them. Other than that although rules can be restricting, it’s fine if they don’t severely bother anyone
If I asked you to take a shot with a football how would that make you feel? Would you be able to do it well? Would you enjoy it?
I’d just do it but I’m not really a sporty person. If I do good I’ll enjoy it but If I do bad i’ll just constantly overthink why I did so terrible
If I asked you to write me an essay, would you enjoy it? What would it be about? How would it make you feel?
Considering that you’ve not given me a specific subject then I’ll enjoy it as I’m projecting my passion and love for writing into something that I hope you would enjoy. I would write an analysis on the lyrics of one of my favourite songs and what effect it has
Do you put things back in their proper place?
Yes.
Is it okay to crack a few eggs? If it makes an omelette? Do the ends justify the means?
No, I think an example was in the UK when Boris Johnson tried to do herd immunity which is such a terrible and unethical idea. The output and process has to be consistently reasonable
Do you have higher tastes that you would expand effort or money to consume ? Elaborate foods? Apple products? Flash clothes? Or does the idea repulse you?
I’m willing to try and look and buy clothes that look nice but I have to think budget-wise as well. It doesn’t repulse me I like to look nice lol
If I asked you to design a plan of action, would it be easier to work alone or in a group? Do you ask for others opinion? or stick to your own guns?
Alone because I feel like some people can’t comprehend my mind as the way I think is very scatter-brained, unless there’s someone that can match my mindset or direct me
A weekend best spent looks like _______?
Having fun with people
My biggest fear is
Failing my mother or my mum dying. Or breaking a bone
How much do you express yourself and what mediums do you do that through? Art? Writing? Talking?
I express myself very creatively, especially writing or graphic design
Generally where do you lean politically? Is it Everyman for himself? Should people be pragmatic? Does the government need to step in and help people?
I don’t know where I lean politically but I think the government needs to care for it’s citizens.
Does it matter if something is factually correct for you to believe in it?
50/50. You have to apply your own personal meaning to those type of things to process it. If someone said “90% of Domestic Violence victims provoke before their partner hits them” you have to be more reasonable and use ur own understanding to be like ‘That doesn’t justify DV!’ Idk if this makes sense lol
How thick skinned are you? Are you sensitive to criticism
I can handle it but internally I struggle with it especially when I put a lot if work into something. I also think unwarranted criticism is rude because the faults Person 1 has propelled onto Person 2 can already be recognised by Person 2 and can make Person 2 feel worse as their faults are more established
I think I’m ENTP/ENFP not sure tho

2020.10.09 23:58 EvaSmith99 I don’t understand how you guys make friends with people

I am an intj (F) who earlier today was talking to an entp because we happen to be in the same English class. I’m British and go to a boys school with a mixed SixthForm. We got along great straight away talking about so many things from the most random abstract thoughts about religion society and philosophies to roasting our class and teacher, gossip you name it. Then my friend who is very pretty came over and he suddenly turned all his attention to mostly talking to her (and so did his friends), that I get is normal. But then he was like carrying a conversation with her, don’t get me wrong she is lovely to talk to, but like she doesn’t say anything that interesting yet all his attention is turned towards her in a more attentive way then how he talked to me. the weirdest thing is that she said that she believes in horoscopes and spiritual healing crystals also she insists that maths and physics are not real?!? (I’ve learn’t to just let her and people like her be, there is no point in trying to argue with people who’s perception of reality will always be based on personal feelings). But this entp guy basically said “are you dumb” to her face and said believing in Christianity (she is also Christian) is foolish and went on a long monologue about it. even is friends started saying she is dumb to her face which was rude. Anyway despite him literally thinking she is an idiot he still pushes to engage conversation with her.
Now you are probably thinking, well he just wants to get with a fit girl, but the thing is this guy already has a girlfriend. I don’t get it like do you guys (especially when it comes to girls) make friends based on who you like talking to or who you are more similar too, or is it with girls whether they are pretty or not because I am not conventionally good looking soooo. I’ve always had this feeling that guys don’t become girls friends with the hope of having an intellectual equal who would challenge them and argue with them. I get the sense that there is always some alterior motive if they are putting effort into conversation with a girl. I always felt that they befriend girls in order to have potential partners in the future or simp or set their own friends up or other reasons than just pure enjoyment of company. But I thought that was more a sensor thing (bit prejudiced). Any thoughts on this from entp’s? If you have bothered to read this far lol.

2020.10.09 19:59 hello-hangul type me from a confused person

Hey guys!
Been confused for a while and am I tired of flip-flopping between those two types so I figured I might as well let the Reddit gods decide my fate.
idk if this will help, but my Enneagram is most likely either 7w6 or 3w2
How old are you? What's your gender? Give us a general description of yourself.
16 year old female, high school senior pursuing pre-law (but still confused on what life is and having to commit to a career). Found MBTI back in 8th grade and (based on 16personalities) went from ESFJ to ENFP to ENTP. think i'm an ambivert (leaning to extrovert), love languages in quality time, physical, and verbal (lol).
Describe your upbringing. Did it have any kind of religious or structured influence? How did you respond to it?
brought up in a conservative and religious Asian household but I am agnostic (once again, super confused on the world) and am very liberal-minded or libertarian (traditional democratic as per the Political Compass test)
What do you do as a job or as a career (if you have one)? Do you like it? Why or why not?
Still a full time student (and probably going to be so for the next 7 years). Personally, I love learning about new things in most (if not all) subjects. Just learning more about the world and how it works is so fascinating. (I don't know if this is important but I have also always been a high-performer in school without trying much).
If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed?
To be honest, I'd kind of feel lonely. Not to rant, but I often get very down if I do not talk to people (the quarantine right now sucks for that reason in particular). I often need to be chatting with people so unless I was in a mood for some "alone" time and binge a show, I'd feel every lonely and down.
What kinds of activities do you prefer? Do you like, and are you good at sports? Do you enjoy any other outdoor or indoor activities?
I am very much an indoors person (don't really like going outside unless it's to meet with people). Activities/hobbies often change a lot (passionate about one thing for a while before liking another) but usually they include binging almost any show (usually more action/animated or crime/mystery), reading, writing, drawing, composing music, dancing, etc. Not a sports person.
How curious are you? Do you have more ideas then you can execute? What are your curiosities about? What are your ideas about - is it environmental or conceptual, and can you please elaborate?
I think a better question is what am I not curious about LMAO. Honestly, anything can send me down a rabbit hole of internet surfing. It honestly (once again) depends on what I am interested in at the moment. Right now, politics is really interesting due to the election going on in the US (which is where I am), so a lot of reading about the government, political stances, etc. I usually do have more ideas than I can execute (i have left and still do leave many projects unfinished despite wanting to finish them; once again, once the passion wears off, I stop). Usually my ideas about things are conceptual (ex. what if this or that).
Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it? What would your leadership style be?
I do not think I love leadership positions but I do often end up having to be the dominant person in most things. In group discussions, I'm usually the one leading the conversation. When doing chores around the house, I prefer it if I can do it on my own, the way I want rather than the way I'm supposed to. I think like most people I'd like to think that I am a good leader in that I can include everyone in the project/task and I can finish things effectively and (often) better than asked.
Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particular artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer.
I am artistic! I love to draw and write, often implementing or daydreaming the worlds I created into reality. In particular (and this might sound weird) but I love acting as if I were my characters, often to create new scenes in my stories.
What's your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them?
I have found that I really love thinking about the future and what will be instead of focusing on the present (often leads to me procrastinating so there's that).
How do you act when others request your help to do something (anything)? If you would decide to help them, why would you do so?
I usually am ready to help anyone when they need it (once again, I more-or-less depend on human interaction to not feel sad). I help them because they need it and also it lowkey makes me feel as though I've done something good with my skills/intelligence.
Do you need logical consistency in your life?
I do value logical consistency in my life but sometimes I do lack it. It's what made me doubt my diagnosis as an ENTP. I do love looking at things objectively and logically (to the point where many people close in my life have called me psychopathic or robotic). However, when things aren't going the way I want or when people close to me have opposing beliefs that I believe are wrong, I can become excessively emotional or illogical in trying to convince them otherwise.
How important is efficiency and productivity to you?
Efficiency and productivity are both very important to me (hard to achieve, but that's something else). If I feel as though I wasn't productive, I often beat myself up mentally for "wasting time" (one of the reasons why I jampack my schedule to excessive levels). Efficiency is also important to me since I again don't like wasting time but I think I am often not very effective as someone who loves to jump in between tasks.
Do you control others, even if indirectly? How and why do you do that?
Yeah, probably. I don't think I do it well, but I can use someone's emotions and morals against them in order to get what I want (have done it many times).
What is your learning style? What kind of learning environments do you struggle with most? Why do you like/struggle with these learning styles? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses?
Kinda weird learning style. I take notes on things and I just remember them. I hear lectures with pictures (very much a visual learner) and I just retain the information. I've never traditionally studied (except maybe for some memorization-based classes like Biology). When answering questions, seeing the question kind of triggers a recall mechanism in my brain where I just remember key terms and their connections and I can correctly answer. I definitely prefer, for that reason, classes based on theory and/or logic, since I can formulate my answer better without having to memorize what is required.
How good are you at strategizing? Do you easily break up projects into manageable tasks? Or do you have a tendency to wing projects and improvise as you go?
I am good at breaking projects up into manageable tasks but I do still "wing" projects. For example, if I had an essay/paper due, I'd break up researching, outlining, writing, and editing the essay for different days. However, I might end up doing them all at the same time or doing one task in the beginning, forgetting about it, and then finishing the task much later.
What are your aspirations in life, professionally and personally?
I want a well-paying and well-respected career that I will always be interested in (ie. never get bored off). Personally, I want to have a work-life balance that keeps me excited and never drained. I would love to have a partner (kinda sad about that now, especially because we're all stuck inside and I can't meet friends, much else date) and a close knit group of friends. I don't think I have many specific goals in life personally, just be happy and content.
What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why?
I think my biggest (abstract) fear is that all my friends and family members actually don't like me and are just pretending that they do. Another fear I guess is being on the "wrong side of history" so as to speak. That is, to be so wrong in my thoughts that I am hurting other people. I am often uncomfortable with the feeling that I am actually not anyone's friend and that I don't have friends (despite knowing almost all of my class). I also lowkey hate it when I see my friends hang out without me, even when it was impossible for me to have joined in. I also have a fear of being stuck in an abusive relationship without knowing that I am in one, and just being stuck in it. More physically, I guess, I hate needles and don't really like blood from wounds as well as the usual suspicion of men around them most women have (do with that what you want).
What do the "highs" in your life look like?
Highs usually include me spending time with my friends, my schedule being packed with things I want to do, and me being at peace with the journey I am on in life (ie. not doubting my path).
What do the "lows" in your life look like?
Lows in my lifes usually look like right now lol. Not being able to talk to or see anyone because everyone is busy, not feeling productive because I don't want to do my work (ie. procrastinating), and being unsure of whether I really want to do what I want to do.
Imagine you are alone in a blank, empty room. There is nothing for you to do and no one to talk to. What do you think about?
Oh god, I think I'd go crazy. Yeah, no I always need human stimulation, be it in the form of actual people, listening to videos of people talking, or just daydreaming of scenes/characters.
How long do you take to make an important decision? And do you change your mind once you've made it?
Usually decisions are split-second ones, but I contemplate on them constantly, sometime shifting small details in my view, sometimes shifting the whole view. And, yes, I definitely flip between whether my decision was right or wrong after I've made my mind.
How long do you take to process your emotions? How important are emotions in your life?
To be completely honest, I do not understand my own emotions. My emotions are often bottled up before they burst or I have mood swings really quick. My emotional outbursts are another reason I was a bit wary of my ENTP diagnosis because ENTPs aren't usually described as being emotional. I think, for me, it's just that I don't know what I feel and what to do to change my mood (ie. my emotions are completely out of my control),
Do you ever catch yourself agreeing with others just to appease them and keep the conversation going? How often? Why?
Usually not? I think conversations are more interesting when you discuss different views, not when you're just talking about one? I might only agree with a person just to appease them if I am trying to find out something else about the person, and trying to progress the conversation to that point. But usually I never play peacemaker (my stubbornness and my flair for discussing/arguing is something most people note about me actually).
Do you break rules often? Do you think authority should be challenged, or that they know better? If you do break rules, why?
Hmmm. I don't think I break rules often? But, I do challenge authority often, usually in a playful manner (just ask my parents haha, they had to deal with me for 16 years). I think, growing up in an Asian household, the biggest thing I hated was the hierarchy of older people having to be shown more respect for their age, rather than respect being something that is earned. I don't think I break rules often in that I am not a delinquent. I usually only go against the norm when it comes to family expectations, not with school or friend groups.

Personally, after reading about cognitive functions I think I'm an ENTP (but I think I could be an INFJ or ENFP)... really doubt that I am a xSxx
My doubt as to my ENTPness comes from the fact that I can see myself with dominant Ni and inferior Se as much as I can see myself with a dominant Ne and inferior SI
Well, that was a long post haha. Hopefully, this can help you guys shed some light on my MBTI (maybe even confirm my enneagram). If you need any more clarification, please just ask, I'd be happy to answer most (if not all) your questions!

2020.10.06 08:15 xdbro Does this INTJ LIKE ME?

Hello, ENTP here. Just trying to decipher where an INTJ might be coming from. Would appreciate some input.
To preface, we met in uni and became close friends. I’m currently in a relationship with someone else, this INTJ has convinced me that my S/O is toxic and that I should dump the guy. (inb4 I get bashed: Yes, my S/O is toxic and I’m in the process of ending things)
I’ve hung out alone with this INTJ a total of 3 times. We get along well. One time he came to my place and opened up about his life until 5am. He told me he feels comfortable around me. He touches me in a friendly way, and he is constantly in close physical proximity with me. He said I was witty and talented. He has also implied that I fall into the category of girls he would date.
But he’s horrible to communicate virtually with. He takes forever to respond to texts, sometimes I think he finds me annoying. He says he’s only looking for casual relationships now. He says he doesn’t want to be in a relationship but his “human brain is primal” and he “hates the craving for a partner”.

2020.10.04 17:10 bbbooyyy The value myth of entps

I recently had an infp partner who had strong values and I felt as if I lacked any sort of value system. I've been thinking back on this and realizing that I did have a value system but it isn't biased. It doesn't not apply to someone because of how I feel towards them. Which made me seem like I was morally insecure.
So when I decided to think about something like honesty which is one of my core values I quickly realized that it wasn't that I lacked any values. But that my values are absolute. Nobody gets a different form of treatment because of how I feel towards them. The best example I have is think of someone asking you to kill 100 people to save your mother. Someone with biased or feeling oriented values would go "I'd kill all of them!" But I found myself asking the question "what about those people? And their families? How will the people around them suffer because I just killed them for my mom?".
And ik that sounds so messed up but it made me wonder why I thought that way. And the reason i think is my desire for the absolute. I think it's why entps try to connect with ideas and with people. Its under the value that there as to be an all encompassing thing that makes sense. It's why I think as entps sticking to one path in life is maddening. Because we so seek to find an absolute. There has to be an absolute way of this or an absolute form of that. There has to be the existence of something which cannot be seen from any other lense. It is absolute and only exists the way it is. It links everything and encompasses everything.
When I realized I was searching for some form of an absolute. And unfortunately I'm only 18 so I have no idea of certain aspects of the world. But from where I am I dont think there exists the absolute in terms of something truly all encompassingwith only one correct view.
But I did come up with a different absolute I think entps would thrive in. The absolute of experience. What this means is that everyone has different perspectives and experiences and as entps we want to link everything. So what better way to get an absolute than to observe and link others experiences. The idea of it is absolute lol.
Because tho experiences and perspectives are relative everyone has them so they are absolute. And it's for this reason that I think entps would benefit from the absolute of experience.
Think about it. Want to learn a new skill. Go ask people with that skill for there experience. And with our objective lenses and unbiased values we would be able to pick apart the faults of their experiences and use it to further our own.
I haven't fleshed out this idea yet but that's what I have for now. This could probably already be a field of philosophy so if it is can someone link to me ant articles on it.

2020.10.04 14:00 spence100 Lots of sex with most MBTI types, AMA!

Yo guys,
I’ve had quite a lot of hookups/girls I’ve dated (80 or so partners) and have always been fascinated with seeing how each type is in bed. I’d say 70% of them took the test and told me their type, 20% I am decently certain of, and the other 10% I’m unsure but took a shot in the dark.
I’m more than happy to answer any questions you have about my experiences through the years with any of the types and patterns I’ve seen - can keep it general or ask anything specific. View my thread history to see a couple other MBTI thoughts related mega posts I’ve made if you’re interested.
To start ya off, here’s the approximate breakdown of number of hookups I’ve had with each type.
ENFJ: 14
ESFP: 11
ENFP: 10
ESFJ: 9
INFP: 7
INFJ: 6
ISFJ: 5
ENTP: 5
ENTJ: 4
ESTP: 2
ISTP: 2
INTJ: 2
INTP: 1
ESTJ: 1
ISFP: 1

2020.10.03 20:24 Kotios y'all ENTPs who have found a "perfect" SO, how did it come about?

I think ENTPs especially like partners that can outsmart them and that can provide a good discourse, otherwise I feel like we only 'date' for sex if they don't tickle our brain follicles.
Any stories? I'm 19 and feel that it's unlikely I find someone super cool soon, so in the meantime I'd like to at least hear your stories and live vicariously through them.
edit: all these responses are so heartwarming!!! I love it and I'll definitely read through them when it's not 3 am lol. these also inspired me to ask someone out to a lunch who may (or may not, but we'll see) be someone that fits with me. I think these responses have really put into perspective (importantly) that this 'perfect' SO is possible, and that it might take some work and a lot of time. Thank you all. :)

2020.10.03 12:04 Denixen1 From an INFJ: ENTPs are cool and stimulating yet utterly underestimated as partners for INFJs because they are in general misunderstood.

I recently watched a video from the YouTube channel "Crime pays but Botany doesn't". I love listening to him rant and ponder on both the jokes and the facts that he tells. At first he seems abrasive, but after a while I realize that he not meaning any harm, he just speak things as he realizes them. He is controversial in an innocent and unpredictable way that I find absolutely fascinating. Halfway through it I realized that he is probably an ENTP.
I haven't meet many ENTPs in my life, at least that I realized, but those I suspected (in hindsight) were ENTPs often came off as abrasive. Although I thought of them as bad persons at the time, I realize now that they were actually good people, they were just showing it in action and observations rather than words.
The more I have learned about ENTPs the more I have come to realize that you are far more misunderstood than INFJs. You just want to help people by pointing out what is wrong and what they are doing that is making them unhappy. You just aren't very good at formulating it in a way that will be received well on an emotional plane. Your directness comes of as abrasive and aggressive and people immediately becomes defensive and don't listen to your well meant advice. It makes me sad to think of how you must feel.
I think there is a reason to why ENTPs are recommend partners for INFJs. ENFPs makes great friends and confidants, but I'd rather have an ENTP as romantic partner. You stimulate our mind and allow us to not just feel good about ourselves like ENFPs does, but more importantly you help INFJs progress and grow which is far more important for their long term happiness. It is too bad for me as a male INFJ that female ENTPs are relatively rare...
What to you think? Can you relate to my description and impression of ENTPs? Do you think Tony in 'Crime pays but Botany doesn't' is an ENTP?

2020.10.03 01:09 pawlette_g Trying to deal with my boyfriends unawareness of his own ego when it comes to being an empathetic partner. INTJ and ENTPs I'm looking for you.

I am 26 (INTJ) and my boyfriend is almost 30 (ENTP). We have been dating for almost 3 years. It's hard to sum up the dynamics of our relationship over a short text so I'll take whatever advice i can get with a grain of salt. To make a long story short sometimes when I get overwhelmed or feel like I'm being misunderstood this can make me susceptible to mild depression. Not clinical. I think most people can relate when I say that when dealing with depression or stress I'm not looking for someone to fix my problems or to be chastised on why I have problems. Personally I'm well aware of why I'm having problems but sometimes they pile up and I can't fix them all at once or even at all. Anyway, usually when I'm in this emotional state my boyfriend doesn't seem to respond well to my needs. I recently found out that the last couple of times we've had a significant argument he went on reddit and basically let his ego do the talking ( I let it go until today). What I mean is that his posts tend to consist of mainly me being the problem, him thinking he was helping by telling me that I'm the problem, and thus not being sure if he can justify being with me because I'm not fixing myself or "relying on him to fix my problems". Mind you I've been very clear on how I communicate my needs especially when I'm stressed or feeling depressed, I don't believe all problems need to be fixed with logic some things require love and support but that never seems to resonate. I feel pretty offended by this having found another post he has made about our most recent argument. If he doesn't know what to do it seems like instead of using his better judgment to gauge the situation, he'll take the word of total strangers who are going off of an ill representation of who I am and what I'm actually dealing with. I don't mean to sound hypocritical but I'm just trying to find what works. Now..fast forward a few weeks from our last argument to today and things have been better than before. Granted In his last post it seemed like he was just fishing for validation of his own ego, the comments seemed to respond with more empathy towards people with depression. So it seems like he took to the advice that was given and has been trying to do little things to help me and our relationship be in a better spot. With all that being said, he clearly doesn't listen to me but when someone else comes along and says the same thing he becomes more receptive. I'm having a hard time not becoming bitter towards this and I'm worried about how this will affect our future.

2020.10.02 21:02 molchat_doma My (ENTP) partner needs a lot of alone time and it affects me (INFP) negatively. How to deal with this

I respect and understand their need and right to their time to themselves but they have no concept of checking in, discussion mundane things like talking about how our days went etc. I'm infpt and it just messes with my head at times. I feel stupid, clingy, obsessive and just not worth being around. I don't feel like I can really express myself though. In my last relationship I would write letters, poems, make art etc. I do draw my current partner but I can't really express my feelings like I used to in my previous relationship. We both do physically express affection though which I love and it just makes up for everything but when we're apart I just feel so sad and alone.

2020.10.02 06:48 FewElevator4 Type me from my view of other types

Made this for shittymbti by rating my experiences with different types, figured it would be interesting to see what type I came off from my descriptions. All jokes, if I roast someone of a certain type I’m just roasting them, not the whole type.
INFP 4w3, 16F:
6/10. Annoying af but it’s endearing. Fun to flirt with cause we can go off into crazy tangents about what European city we’d go to for our 10th anniversary, not so much fun talking politics about because if I disagree with her I’m automatically some -ist. Has zero understand of other people’s feelings but that’s okay ig. Thinks she’s unique but just another flavor of basic.
ENTJ 3w2, 16M:
5/10 because total love-hate relationship with him. Used to be friends with him until I criticized his politics, as one does when having political discussions. Sees everything as black and white, open-and-shut, and went from being a Reagan conservative to a Bernie stan in days. Pretty smart but not as much as he thinks he is. He thinks he’ll be president but half the people that know him think he’s a pompous dick so I’m not sure how viable that is.
ENFP 7w6, 17F:
10/10. Lowkey my best friend. Great sense of humor, chill, have the best convos with her, sets me up with her friends.
ENTP 3w2, 16M:
7/10. Entertaining, but stfu and sit down, you’re not as smart as you think you are. Knowing Ancient Greek and having edgy political views doesn’t make you a genius.
ENFJ 3w2, 17M:
4/10. The pettiest person I met. Removed me from his private story when I told him I didn’t want to be debate partners with him anymore because he saw that as a ‘betrayal’. Thinks liking Andrew Yang and Hasan Minhaj is a personality trait. Wants everyone to know what a nice guy he is, and will remind you aggressively. Too nice to talk shit about you to your face but perfectly willing to do it behind your back. Talks to 500 girls but doesn’t make a move on any of them.
INFJ 2w1, 18F:
6/10. Really nice to the point of being a bit overbearing (double texts me if I’m okay when I’m tryna ignore my phone and study), good sense of humor, kinky asf even as a joke, but also really really stubborn. She (thinks she) knows what her future looks like and fuck logic if it doesn’t agree with that future. Is willing to get back with her ex who cheated on her because she ‘saw a future with him’. All in all a good friend but overly stubborn. Says ‘I love you’ in a platonic way without a trace of sarcasm.
ENFJ 7w6??, 16F:
10/10. Chill. Fun to talk to about random stuff at 3 AM. Tbh one of the most non-judgmental and fun people I know.
ESTP 8w7, 16M:
6/10. Thinks he’s going to be the next Elon Musk because he has a Robinhood account and got an A in AP Physics, tried to sell homecoming tickets as if that made sense, decently good at photography and track.
ENTJ 8w9, 18F:
She scares me, but in a good way. Lots of respect for her and her accomplishments, but would consider her more of like a boss or mentor figure rather than an actual friend. Can actually be pretty chill outside ‘official stuff’, if not a bit blunt.

Interested in politics and I’d probably vote for him unlike previous guy because he accepts criticism and doesn’t think he’s god’s gift to mankind.

2020.09.30 21:36 molchat_doma Having trouble connecting with my entp partner

I know that it's possible to connect with them on the level that I desire but I'm very reluctant since I can't always gauge what kind of response they'd like when they're upset. They get distant when they're down and I just give them a lot of space but the problem is I need to express my affection and love. That's just something I need! They've mentioned once that if they're being quite I shouldn't get all distant. I'm not being distant I'm just giving them space! DATING THEM IS SO CONFUSING I JUST THINK THEY'RE COOL AND I DONT WANT TO BE UP THEIR ASS ALL THE TIME WHICH I FEEL LIKE I ALREASY AM HELP ME

2020.09.29 16:27 Lastrevio why Fe- activates Ne+ and why Fe+ activates Se- and how it works for ExTPs

if a function "naturally generates" another function or if the act of using a function simply naturally leads to something in the domain of another one we can say it activates it
spoiler: this is sort of a follow-up of this conversation transcript so you should read that first. it's because i had the thoughts in this post last night after having that conversation so it naturally follows
Fe+: trust, communication, cooperation between people at large
what does that naturally lead to? when people cooperate they can start working together on united goals, to actively change something, bring something into reality. That's Se-. Extraverted negativist functions bring something into reality which previously wasn't there and Se is self explanatory
Fe-: contrast between different human natures, conflict/debate, incompatibility, drama, as well as turning a previously negative emotional state into a positive one by a 'revolution' of some sort, directly dealing with the negative/unpleasant topics in life and trying to change them and cause controversy and debate. Disharmony (also why it is supervised by Si- which is harmony/balance)
when you have all those things what does it naturally lead to? Clearly not people working together towards a common goal, you actually need the influence before you use Fe-, which is why Fe- is activated by Se instead of activating it. Instead it naturally generates ideas. When people debate, they generate ideas (and since we're talking about ideas themselves and not the lack thereof, Ne+ not Ne-), when you deal with unpleasant feelings, when you make a revolution in society, you are generating potential for something new. when people naturally either don't get along or are in different moods (there is contrast) you will better observe their differences, their internal attributes, their way of being, you will draw conclusions about human nature when you find it contrasted, not when all people are the same. All of those consequences are Ne+ (archetypes about human nature too, but many will disagree)
this is also why Ne+ is naturally supervised by Fi+ and ENTPs have PoLR Fi+. Fi+'s agenda is trust, deep bonds between people, closing the distance and just taking the bond between two people or a person and a thing and making that bond strong and solid. But Ne+ is activated by Fe-. How can an ENTP expect to have strong bonds with people if their entire existence is based on intentionally causing debates and even conflicts just to see what would happen so they can gain information and generate ideas? how can an ENTP expect to be respected and to have close friends if they view other people as objects to play with and 'test' them to see what would happen?
of course we only need the tertiary function in small to moderate amounts, enough that we're able to process everything with our dominant function. Give more Fe- to the ENTP that they can process with their Ne+ and they'll "overflow", like when in an emotional state they may talk very quickly, stumble over their words, become irrational, even forget the initial starting point of disagreement.
this is also why Se- is naturally supervised by Fi- and ESTPs have PoLR Fi-. Fi-'s agenda is respecting the large distance between two people, formality. How can you expect an ESTP to respect the distance between them and someone else if their entire existence can be summarized as: how they can directly brute force their way in reality into getting what they want? how can they respect the distance between two people if their entire worldview is based on (tertiary) people working together to achieve some goal? this is why when the ESTP accentuation becomes too strong (the type becomes pathological) they will tell people close to them how to act, how to dress, how to treat them, impose their own manner code which is often detached from society (from my biased ENTP view, just as useless as the ISFP's manner code) out of fear that their friend will not respect them, or will keep their partner 'in chains' by applying direct force (metaphorically, but if they're pathological enough literal chains too lol) out of fear that the partner will leave them, etc. If the ENTP views people as objects to be tinkered around with to see their reaction ESTPs view people as playdoh to be modeled in whatever way you wish.

2020.09.29 04:59 CarpeDiemLiam66 Hypothesis on MBTI and Dating based on observations

Hello,
First all, let me throw some stats out, although it is irrelevant in regards to the general post itself.
33/M ENTP-A 5w4 USA
I'm not here to talk dating, or to find my soulmate. I am here to talk about some conclusions I have drawn from observation- at least where I live in the United States, when it comes to dating and attraction.
I believe that there are 4 kinds of dating pairings, based on the principles of extroversion and introversion, as originally laid out by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, whose theories and ideas would later become the backbone of the MBTI. This applies to all kinds of gender relationships, but for the sake of tradition and majority of cases, I will go with the heterosexual orientation when discussing these relationship pairings.
I am also curious if there are people on this forum who have dated who are extroverts who have dated other extroverts.
So here are the pairings I have noticed, from most common, to least common. I will speak in generalities, but then again- this is my subjective conclusions based on my observations:
- Extorverted Female, Introverted Male
This is the most common pairing I have observed, and accounts for the majority of marriages and relationships I have seen. I think this, to a certain degree, also coincides with traditional gender roles- even in adulthood.
The woman can be the socialite, the empath, the person who values deep emotional connections, harmony, etc. She can freely engage in this behavior, because to a large degree, it falls in line with the female gender role of being the nurturer, the empath, the socially connected person in the relationship.
The introverted male in this relationship basically can engage in his own hobbies or interests by himself in this relationship. He does not need to be overly social, because his girlfriend or wife plays that role out. So he focuses on himself.
I never understood how two opposites like this would attract. It is illogical. Someone who is an extroverted female naturally wants outside stimulation and to socialize with people. An introvert male typically perfers to be alone or stay at home because they don't need excessive outside stimulation, and are stimulated by themselves, with their own mind or other activities. What could possibly attract these two types? The extroverted female tries to break the introverted male out of their shell by trying to get them to try new things. The introverted male may or may not be receptive to this, and if unreceptive, will become resentful of the extroverted female for being too pushy, which will make the extroverted frustrated or annoyed that the introverted male isn't trying to do what they want to do.
- Introverted Female, Extroverted Male
This pairing works because the introverted female tends to be very mature, calm, collected, and intelligent. The extroverted male represents a outgoing, fun-loving, free-spirited nature, which is intriguing to the introverted female- particularly if the extroverted male is intelligent and not is just some fun loving party animal. The Extroverted Male tries to get the Introverted Female out of her shell, and try new things, while the introverted female provides stability, reliability, and dependability for the more extroverted male- especially when he needs to step back from socializing or being stimulated from the outside world.
- Introverted Female, Introverted Male
This works on the principle of mutually shared introversion. Both can relate to each other, but in addition to this, they both are fine spending time away from each other, engaging in their own interests or activities.
- The rarest type I have observed: Extroverted Female, Extroverted Male
I have only seen this happen a couple types, and it baffles me, although it is the combination that works best for me personally. I hypothesize that too extroverts basically feed off each other with conversations, visiting places for outside stimulation. The issue is that there can be a lack of a stabilizing influence, but if one partner is a Judger (J) instead of a Perceiver (P)- this can make up for the two individuals overly extroverted nature.
What do you guys think?
