Do you agree, disagree, have other items you would have added?
Today we’re going to find out what gets under an ENTP’s skin. ENTPs are often referred to as visionaries, and it’s not hard to see why! They are known for their insightfulness, their love of logic, and their innovative approach to life. Many of the great inventors, philosophers, and thought leaders of the world have been ENTPs; people like Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin and Socrates. Chances are you even have a favorite celebrity ENTP like Robert Downey Jr., Jon Stewart, or Claire Danes. If you’re looking for someone with an infectious love of new ideas, someone who challenges the commonplace, or someone with a quirky, offbeat sense of humor, chances are you’ll love an ENTP friend.


Now the question is, what should you avoid if you want to stay on an ENTPs good side? What things stress them out or get on their nerves? I consulted my MBTI manuals and talked to some ENTPs to get their ideas, and I came up with this list of 5 behaviors to avoid:

Micromanaging

ENTPs love freedom and the ability to explore ideas and pathways without restrictions. Because of their dominant Extraverted Intuition (Ne) they are constantly aware of multiple options, various avenues of thought, and different ways of achieving the best end result. They hate to be controlled or to have too many restrictions placed upon them. Control freaks, micro-managers, text-stalkers; all these types of people are bound to get on an ENTP’s nerves.

People Who Argue Opinions They Haven’t Researched

ENTPs are true rationals who are always looking for the most logical answer to a problem. Before they settle on an opinion they make sure to research it from every angle, to argue their opinion with themselves (and others), and to make sure their opinion is backed by every form of logic. They are disappointed when others don’t do the same. In fact, they can quickly lose respect for people who hold fast to an opinion they haven’t researched fully or who aren’t open to hearing an alternate view.

People-Pleasing Behavior

ENTPs appreciate being blunt and authentic. They have tertiary Fe (Extraverted Feeling) that gives them an easy charm in social settings, but they are quickly turned off by excessive people-pleasing behavior. They can quickly spot inauthenticity, manipulative behaviors, and games people play to try to get approval. They are quickly frustrated by this kind of behavior, and will either correct or avoid someone who does this consistently.

Superstition

ENTPs are true lovers of logic and the scientific method. They have a strong distaste for superstitious behaviors and what they feel are “illogical” beliefs. Believing in something that can’t be rationally verified or held up to scrutiny seems like a crime to an ENTP. While some ENTPs find superstitions amusing; there are not many who are bound to take them seriously, and they will be puzzled and eventually annoyed if someone tries to push their superstitions onto them.

People Who are Quick to Judge

It may seem like a contradiction to some of the earlier points, but ENTPs are actually very open-minded people. As long as you’re willing to listen to their side of the story or their insights, they’ll listen to yours as well. They enjoy a healthy debate or challenge, and even bond over these kinds of exchanges. They like to see things from multiple angles (through Extraverted Intuition) and understand all the ins and outs of a problem (through Introverted Thinking), so they aren’t quick to make judgments – and they prefer if other people aren’t either.

These aren't five things that annoy ENTPs, it's five things ENTPs find annoying in others.

Actually, I have found that ENTPs can be at risk of people pleasing themselves due to Fe

Also I would not catagorize entps as "visionaries" at all. They are super fun and awesome but that isnt a correct description at all. Hmm. Maybe more like "inventors"

people pleasing is my worst fault. i loath myself sometimes for being unable to wreck an atmosphere by telling someone to just back the fuck off. when i do do it, people really are like "...holy jelly jesus...what just happened? care bear went killmode o_O?" it's like i'm a non-entity most of the time in group situations. i'm there to laugh and learn, not set a standard, even though i think it does need to happen sometimes (Fi doms, we love you <3)

the rest actually sum up my pet peeves...i can't think of anything else that annoys me in people. i'm happiest in work when i'm free to flow and not fearing the boss checking my every move...superstition without logic or fact make my brain sad...the others aren't -as- bad...

i don't mind if you're quick to judge as long as you don't start belittling people because of it (even though i think it's extremely stupid to jump to conclusions over anything), and i often argue points i haven't researched too well simply because i can usually tell when i'm doing it with someone in the exact same boat and i might learn something (and i'm better at it lol). when someone is doing it on a subject i consider myself an expert though and i can tell they've been at it for the grand total of the time it took to read some bullet points off a blog or something, it does bug me, because it should be obvious imo when you're out of your depth. i -love- debate, but in that instance, it's not debate. it's one idiot maintaining they're right because. and that really fucking irritates me. there is no willingness to learn and so i stand to gain nothing except a headache

Also I would not catagorize entps as "visionaries" at all. They are super fun and awesome but that isnt a correct description at all. Hmm. Maybe more like "inventors"
i wouldn't mind being an inventor, except i don't have much follow through to actually do that...experimenter might be more apt. the only time i'll invent something is if i can't find a way to get what i need/want

@NewMango

I do a lot of low level inventing at my job and I can
say that if you get into the right place you need but
have the vision and you can get others to do the leg work.

I do it all the time. Basically a customer comes to our firm with
a problem. I sit with them go through options that are "known good"
in the industry. Well being that they came to us in the first place means
that existing known-good practices/items will not cut the muster so
it is a quick meeting. They tell me what they need I take a day or
two to brain storm and come up with some drawings. Here's the good bit.
I THINK and SOLVE well someone else draws and implements the idea.

I do get hands on when it comes to prototyping product. New builds
are as fun as hell full of free hookers and a pile of blow. A lot more safe tho ;)

So, semantically I get the visionaries bit; indeed employ it
and live it.

I will add as a caveat that it is apart of my job and by no means
is it all bells and whistles. There is routine stuff and staff management and what
have you. Don't even get me going on payroll and accounting stuff ... blah ...
inventory as well ...ughhh

6 - Your font size. It is really annoying. Why do you need to write that way? Do you think you deserve special attention? Are you some important shit on the internet? Hint : no you aren't. You just look like an attention whore in perpetual appeal to their own authority.

I would agree with this list, although like @desire machine said none of these really annoy me horribly except maybe the micromanaging. General micromanaging doesn't bother me too much but I had a boss that was a micromanager so a day in day out micromanager annoys me.

As far as people-pleasing ENTPs go, it is different than what is described above. I tend to people please to keep the atmosphere light. In other words, if people will get mad if we do a different activity than what I might have wanted-I'll go with the one they wanted just to keep them happy. Quite honestly, I am rarely disappointed by activities, plans, or meals even if they weren't my first pick; however, I have been disappointed by the company with me because they were unhappy or in a bad mood. I do not people please if I don't actually want to so any people pleasing I do is genuine. I won't brown nose unless I actually liked the person I was brown nosing. I might say something nice to someone because I know it would make them feel good, but I won't say anything that I don't actually agree with (I'm not going to tell someone they look nice if I don't think they do; however, if they seem like they need a complement, I might complement the shoes or earrings they are wearing if I like them). I am definitely not a people pleaser in general. You should hear the stories my mom has about all the incidents that I was very much not about pleasing people, especially in comparison to my ESFP brother.

People pleasing that comes across as dis-ingenuous as described above is what bothers me. That is when people say or do nice things purely for an obvious gain or say things that they don't believe because they think the other person wants to hear it. Those are the people, using the example above, that complement you on the way you look, while internally thinking you don't look very good. It also annoys me when people try to hard to be liked. My brother can fall into this. My parent's thought he was a really organized and planning kid when he was a child because of how he did everything they told him without complaint. He actually is definitely a perceiver not judgment like them but was such a suck up to them that he did everything they said. It look until late high school for him to be less concerned what they thought and he started acting more like himself.

I think we are called Visionary for our ability to see the big picture and connect seemingly unrelated things. I think I am more visionary than an inventor. I am more likely to see the connection between several different existing things over inventing something from thin air. I'm a tweaker more than a pure inventor. I can see how to move forward and how I can take an existing thing and make it better.

I understand that, but I think that is not the right word. INFJ is the type usually considered "visionary"
