    Depends on what you're consuming, I guess. Avatar: The Last Airbender has an ENFP (Aang) and ENTP (Sokka) in learning roles, and Malcolm in the Middle has quite the unhealthy INTP (Malcolm) as its protagonist as well.

    Lord Pixel, thanks for spending the time to compile all those links!! I'll definitely be checking them out!

    I forgot about Malcolm. but he definitely is an exception.
    I'm not familiar with Avatar. but more exceptions. Avatar 20-50 years later will have those characters in the positions of Yoda-like characters.

    @bokuto the rest of the malcolm characters are SP and SJ though.
    and again, from a statistical perspective, it just makes sense.I don't think malcolm would have been a great show if it was truly centered around malcolm. If Malcolm were truly "in the middle" rather than just "in the middle." often times I think the comedy comes just as much from the SP and SJ characters having to deal with his and each other's antics as much as it comes from him dealing with theirs.

    If it were just a show about an INTP and his struggles... I don't think the world would be able to relate and find humor in the stories as much as they do in the show as it is.

    Np, I know I sent a couple they don't need to be watched all the way through, a couple seconds and you can get the picture. They are all clever guys with edgy "different" humor.

    Oh, absolutely. The choice to have an INTP protagonist with an ESTJ mother and an ESTP older brother is absolute GOLD. It's almost like the people that wrote it knew about typology when planning it out, and asked themselves "which types would go absolutely terribly together"? It's one of my all time favorite shows in the entire world.

    I think we're starting to come back to where I was trying to get at with my original question, but maybe I didn't quite articulate well enough to begin with and that's why we got a little off track. Inferior Te problems. You are correct -- I was not looking for anything to sit and mull through the literal inner workings of an NT's brain for an hour and thirty minutes; if I wanted to do that, I'd just go try to read threads of people trying to explain Ne again, haha!

    No, I am indeed seeking out ENTP characters whose character is shown through their interaction with others, with the world around them, with their choices and how they respond to challenges presented to them, etc. Just as I would seek out any other character of any other type. Y'know?

    so you want more shows like Malcolm in the Middle, but with an ENTP.

    yeah me too. Again there is Chandler from Friends. Most people think so, at least. I don't think @IDontThinkSo agrees.
    The rest of the examples you see are just small glimpses of interactions rather than main character interactions.

    Bayaz from "The First Law Trilogy" is pretty front and center in his story line. and he is pretty human. Dealing with issues and so forth as they pop up. As is Merlin from "The Once and Future King" is pretty front and center. We don't see their thoughts or anything, just their interactions. but they show up more often than most ENTP characters that I am familiar with. (assuming they are ENTP of course. I don't want to get into a debate. without being inside their heads, its hard to get any deeper than the stereotypes).

    I don't know though. If Ne-dom is your primary concern. maybe widen your pool to include ENFPs as well? I'm still not sure if I'm getting what it is you are looking for. I'm thinking fiction that revolves around an ENTP and shows how an ENTP acts and reacts to the external. And I just can't really think of any solid examples that are on the level as fiction centered around SP and SJ characters, or Malcolm.

    I think some consider Lupin, from Harry Potter, to be another ENTP.
    I think you just have to kind of gather up all the ENTPish characters amalgamate their interactions.

    You understand! I think there may just be a lack of ENTP characters in popular fiction, honestly. I don't think any type is impossible to write a compelling arc for, and so I'm sure there are ENTP main characters out there waiting for us to find them. As for the ENFP thing -- I'll do that, actually. ENFPs are INFINITELY easier to find, and though I'm usually okay at identifying them, I can't say I understand the why behind my method for distinguishing them from ESFPs. Clearing that up would probably help me in my little quest to get a handle on the goddamn Extroverted Intuition function after all these years. That said, I will definitely check out the examples you suggested. Thanks so much for your help!!

    given our scarcity. we might be harder to write as well ;) I won't say that we should be represented as infrequently, because heroes are represented in fiction more frequently than in real life. as are dragons and everything else.
    but I still think we are more interesting when you only see one side of us.

    What about Artemis Fowl?? what is he?
    edit: nevermind. I keep seeing INTJ for Artemis.

    ENTP

    I know a show that I found quite clear:

    Show: "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"
    Who: Jacob "Jake" Peralta

    Although he might not be the smartest ENTP, I couldn't find a better show.
    If the ENTP's never develops, then this might be quite accurate tho.
    The longer you watch it, the more you will notice it.
