    Same type interaction

    I'm interested in hearing how you guys interact with other ENTPs. I can think of a few people in my life who are ENTP, but I can't say I'm friends with any of them, or know them well even. Anyhow, what are your experiences dealing with the same type?

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    So you did start a new thread after all

    I'm currently working with a team consisting of an ENTP, ENTJ and an ISFP at school. The former two know a lot of people, including this gang with ENTx people. Other than that, I don't really know that many ENTPs - or at least people I can type as ENTPs for sure - though I've a good friend who's an ExTP, so she might very well be one.

    I get along pretty good with them, generally. Me and my ExTP friend hit it off instantly since we share similar traits. On the other hand, we've had plenty of issues, too: our similar trust issues (and experiences of being backstabbed/abandoned by close friends) and unspoken rivalry in trying to outdo each other in everything can sometimes get really tiring, especially when we're both in "getting-attention-mode" rather than "giving-attention-mode". There was a lot more of that when we were in mid-puberty, though - it's a bit less now.

    I know a lot of ENTPs because I work in a computer related field where they seem to gravitate. The ones I know are generally more outgoing and less serious than me. I've met a few quieter ones, and they all tend to be professors. I get along with them in general but it's irritating to see my personal flaws in somebody else, especially if they are flaws that I have worked to overcome (like bragging).

    I have two close friends who are ENTPs and both are super-outgoing, friendly guys who have, unfortunately, had a lot more trouble getting their lives together than me. I think there must be a correlation between extraversion and waywardness in ENTPs.

    I've read that ENTPs like to out-clever each other when they meet. There are some famous meetings between ENTPs such as Harlan Ellison and Isaac Asimov:

    [T]he first time Ellison met Asimov at a sci fi convention Ellison saw Asimov in a crowd of young female groupies. Asimov was in seventh heaven. He was known to be quite the dirty old man (although that itself might be a legend). Ellison marched up to Asimov. Ellison did not identify himself. "Are you THE Isaac Asimov?" "Yes, I am." "Hrmph. You don't look like much."
    or Paul Ehrenfest and Wolfgang Pauli:

    The two met at a conference for the first time. Ehrenfest was familiar with Pauli's papers and was quite impressed with them. After a few minutes of conversation, Ehrenfest remarked, "I think I like your Encyclopedia article [on relativity theory] better than you," to which Pauli shot back, "That's strange. With me, regarding you, it is just the opposite." The two became very good friends from then on.

    Love it.

    I've yet to meet an "immature" ENTP.

    I've never interacted with another ENTP -_- Which is kind of shocking. I hope this changes sometime during college.

    I get along with them well enough, I suppose. They can be a bit touchy-feely for my tastes, oddly enough. Seriously....All of the ones I know are that way. Weird.

    I get on very well with all the ones I've met.

    But then I get on well with most people. I think.

    I know two ENTPs and I get along with them pretty well. One has been a close friend for 13 years and I go to him whenever I want to have a chill and laid back time. Another is my coworker but I tend not to spend too much time with him because he only likes to talk about technology (computers, cell phones, gadgets, etc.).

    In my field they're pretty rare, but the ones that do make it tend to be professors, and they're all fucking sociopaths, because that means they're Harvard professors, and thus ride around academia on a flaming chariot, whipping an army of graduate students, nourishing a sense of narcissism and entitlement the likes of which you've never seen.

    Socially, I'm polite until I'm challenged. If I they're clever and not assholes, we tend to get along exceptionally well.

    I just met my ENTP match recently and we get along really good. Two Ne dom's will come up with some really strange topics to talk about. One time we somehow got to talking about what would happen if we could genetically engineer mushrooms to have the same properties as the goombas in Super Mario Bros. We both have a lot to talk about, so there's really never a dull moment.

    The only real "drawback", if you could call it as such, is that we're both pretty aimless and lack plans and we can be indecisive. We went out to dinner once and I think we told the poor server "Just a few more minutes!" about 5 times before we both finally figured out what we wanted. You'll end up at really random places too. There's a lot of last minute, random decisions. Its nice in a way because sometimes people annoy when they're too structured or organized, but on the other hand, if we were ever working on something together on a deadline, we could have some pretty major issues.
