I'd like some external perceptions and opinions pls.

So I met this dude a while ago. He's really awesome. I actually had him take the test and he got ENTP as his result, although I cannot for the life of me remember the percentage between the E/I, N/S, T/F and P/J axis'. I can say however that he is most definitely more on the extroverted side than introverted.

Whenever we're together he's usually the one talking. We'll start off with one topic and he'll kick off from it and trail off onto 30 different topics and tell me 10 stories within the span of a half hour, and then settle back into reality and be like, "Oh crap... where was I?" Literally. He does this a lot. Like a lot.

He also has told me that whenever he has nothing to do (on his days off for example) he gets really bored if he doesn't go out and do something. He'll just drive around and find something to do so he doesn't have to sit at home and be bored.

He's not the best texter. It takes him a little bit to respond if he's doing something (not working, but like... binge watching a show.) But when we're together, I can't get him to stop talking. (Not that I mind, but yeah.)

He's definitely very nerdy. He's very into explaining and talking to me about things he's interested in. Books, shows... etc. He could go on for an eternity.

Not really sure what else to put here. He's very, very polite to people from what I've seen. He's got a silly sense of humor and likes to play around a lot.

Feel free to ask questions. I'm interested in what people think.

Sounds about right.

I don't think we necessarily need to go out and find something to do at all times, but that could be because I am older and less dependent on lots of Ne perception overload, more interested in meditative thought.

Yeah, not necessarily an ENTP trait but more of a Ne trait. If that makes sense anyway... Like some Ne users might be better at handling what Ne strives for or the Ne itself might yearn for different things and that varies from person to person. Like when we're hanging out he doesn't make us go out and go places, and we're actually pretty relaxed. But I think he gets restless when there's no people around and nothing to do.

Yeah, it makes sense. He could be an ENTP. Why are you so curious about his type?

Well, having a general interest in mbti and interest in my boyfriend... I guess that'd be why. It also just helps me learn more about the people around me too.

Honestly, I think it's more of an ENFP trait. The idea of Ne is that it seeks anything that stimulates the expansion of possibilities and potentials. For an ENTP, since we back it up with Ti, we can easily sit alone for hours reading/thinking/playing with ideas in our minds, and basically engage in Ne mental masturbation. For an ENFP, they also can do this a little (and NFPs often report spending hours daydreaming of fake relationships they have built up in their mind, so much so that they don't even want to pursue these relationships since it might crush their dream world), but it's much easier for an ENFP to just go out and seek other people for a continuous train of Ne bombardments, centered around Fi. So in particular, the ENFP is seeking relationships with people that seem to embody their ideals. Hence why NFPs tend to be constant victims of idealism - it isn't that the person was necessarily deceptive, but rather than the NFP *wants* the person to embody their Fi ideals, as it stimulates Ne/Fi to do so, and it's all too easy to get sucked into that pattern, in an addictive way.
