Because I'm actually wondering if i typed correctly this one girl i met somewhere. She's very talkative, only hangout with the guys. She just talk and talk intuitively and nerdily.

I think she's an entp because her topics are about nerd stuffs. And it's Ne overload.

So is it common for entps to be talkative due to Ne?

I can be very talkative if a topic interests me (which tend to be nerdy topics like philosophy and psychology and politics). Otherwise I can be very quiet. (I'm not much into talking about sports, weather, fashion, or who's dating who).

It's weird though because it seems some people see me as a very quiet shy person, and others see me the opposite as a talkative very extroverted person.

I think everyone's different, but I think what I just described prob applies to a lot of entps... we can be talkative if we find the convo fun and interesting otherwise we can be very quiet. Hence "the most introverted extrovert" label that gets put on entps.

I'm talkative if I am interested in the topic; however, I tend to be interested in many topics, even ones I don't know much about, so I am more talkative than most. I do not like small talk if I can help it. I will friendly small talk if I am checking out at a register at a store but I am not likely to be talkative if it is an extended small talk conversation unless the person is someone that I want to talk to so I push through the small talk to get to more juicy conversation. If I'm with a group of people who are talking about subject I have no interest in, I tend to be quiet or actually walk away. I will find excuses to get out of a conversation I do not find interesting. It's interesting because I have very little issue about making an excuse to get off the phone or walk away from a colleague's desk when I find a topic uninteresting. My ISTJ husband has the hardest time telling people he needs to go even when he actually has something he really needs to do or the phone call was interrupting something. Me with my Fe is much more willing to cut people off than him. Not sure if that is his Te (dealing with social structure and social interaction) or Fi?

I will say, if the conversation is stimulating my Ne, I won't shut up.

So talkative. My entp knows it too. She notices me looking at her at the end of her monologue, and always says, "WHY AM I LIKE THIS?" and runs away into the woods.

Yeah, but like others have already said, only about things I'm interested in. If i'm not interested in it, then I'm not going to care to talk about it or hear about it. It's funny because I can be TOO talkative when I'm interested in the subject, I guess it's supposed to counteract how quiet I am with everything else. I hate small talk, so I don't really like to partake in it. I've been told "dude you talk too much" and "why are you always so quiet" by the same person, it happens all the time. I'm like Roadrunner in converstion, but only in bursts of interests. It's not that I get drained from talking, it's that when people want to move on to another topic, I'm not even finished TALKING about the topic, never mind thinking over every aspect of it.

When my Ne is in gear, I often will walk away from the conversation and think "my God, I could not shut up. I'm not even sure I remember half the things I said".

yeah enfps are talkative. I always remember I went to school out of state and my dad (INTP) gave me and my roommate/best friend (ENFP) a few hour drive home for the holidays one time and after the trip ended my dad said something along the lines of "wow your friend does not shut up" which surprised me because I hadn't really ever thought about him being talkative...oh yeah I guess he doesn't ever shut up...he does seem to have the need to fill any silence with talking ..but that must be why I like hanging out with him so much. :)

..though your description of taking a backseat when an enfp talks might indicate you're not EN-P after all... I know for me when I hit it off w/ an entp or enfp we feed off of and amplifier each other's energy back and forth ..i feel like there's some analogy I want to use about amplifiers and runaway feedback or something ...

Oh. It is bad when I get around a leading Ne person. Good Lord! That is how I realized that a person I knew that I never really talked to one on one for any significant amount of time was an ENTP. He was a friend of my husband's and we started talking and it was a whirlwind after that. My husband was lost but because he really likes his friend, was not upset that we basically were talking too fast for his carefully executed Si brain could handle. We were 2 topics ahead before he would come up with something to say.

I have to be careful with my ENFP boss. When we get all geeky on a discussing a project, I end up walking out of his office two hours later (which I can't bill) when all I went in was for a simple yes or no answer to something.

In a normal situation I am moderately talkative. The thing is, I hate details and repeating myself. When people ask me a question I usually give a short synthetic answer first, and wait for more specific questions to come. Yet people don't work that way and assume I don't want to talk or have nothing to say. No folks I'm trying to make the investigation process easier for us. And until I seize what you really want to know in details, I won't go in details.

I also know how to shut up and let others speak. If people want to interrupt me, that's either because I'm wrong so it is useless to carry on, or they don't have the patience to understand I'm right and it is useless to carry on. Or they don't care about what I say so what am I doing with them in the first place.

True. I wasn't that talkative actually.. But i actually fills up convo as well when I'm hanging out with an introvert. XD

But i like the talkative ones i guess because I'm just lazy to just talk i guess unless something really interests me

It really depends on my relationship to the people I'm around. But in most cases, I hold back. I like to keep an air of mystery about me. I find chatty people tedious.

Another factor is that I have been a stay-at-home mother for the last few years and my non-mom conversational skills aren't what they used to be.

When we're on a topic we're interested in? We won't shut up about it. When we're involved in a conversation that bores us, we're likely to either try to change the subject to a topic we are interested in, or find some way to extricate ourselves from the conversation and seek life elsewhere.

I should like to point out that I'm not chatty by any stretch of the imagination. I just get enthused about topics I'm conversant in. I prefer to say more with less, whenever possible.

Depends on the context and who I'm talking to. You might want to take a look at who she's talking to in order to see if she's really an ENTP.
If I'm surrounded by ES, I'm definitely the less talkative of them; my ESFJ and ESTJ friends would talk and talk and talk and talk and I'm just there to add a few things once in a blue moon.
However, when surrounded by introverts, sometimes I do feel like I need to be the one talking, as though I'm in charge of it. Also, because otherwise it can get boring. A great example of it:


By the sound of it, it looks like she might be more ENFP than ENTP. Talking constantly about nerdy stuff around everyone all the time is something we're not that confortable with. Especially if we feel that the other side might be a bit judgy about it - or Fe working.

I can be both talkative and quiet. It depends, as most here have said. Obviously I'll be talkative if the topic interests me, I've always been like that, even during a period when I was on the shy and quiet side, I would just wanna jump in and participate in the discussion for fun.

I'm ok with being quiet and not talking, but a lot of people find that weird or awkward. That makes others uncomfortable and I feel often times I need to babysit their emotional needs per se. So I just make them talk by asking stuff or mentioning things. This is recently tho.

But yeah it depends on what mood I'm in, if I'm interested in the person, etc.

I don't like it when I get someone talking and all they do is talk about themselves and when I mention somethintg about myself, they ignore it and just wanna keep talking, so I zone those people out, even if it might seem mean but whatever.

probably i cannot fully judge her yet.. because i dont know her that much yet.. its like im just seeing her as an acquaintance. thats just my first impression. so i cannot really judge. and not all entps are the same,, theyre different. probably similar on how they act but really different
