That's exactly my problem, I don't know how to tell the truth in a way that doesn't hurt people. I don't even know how some people menage that. Kudos to them.you can say the truth without being rude :tongue:
see it as a challenge
I call myself an asshole. Does that count?
Thats like saying, "I'm not a racist but..."
I think younger ENTPs can be overly obnoxious and argumentative. This can give them a reputation for being assholes. It takes a while for some of us to fully understand the nature of our abilities.I am a really honest and direct Entp. If i see something wrong or stupid, i would point it out and i dont care if the sensitive people get hurt because the deserve the truth. - Entp dude.
what about you guys?
Right, because everything you think is undeniably "the truth." It's fine to be confident in your opinions, but if you push them onto anyone and everyone unprompted (and without being conscious of wording and such), you're just going to piss people off. No one is benefitted by that (unless you enjoy pissing people off, I suppose). You're wasting your energy and whatever good will you might have.If i see something wrong or stupid, i would point it out and i dont care if the sensitive people get hurt because the deserve the truth.
Well, I get that not all the ENTPs are the same. Some of you truly have a thrill in doing things that would be classified as insensitive asshole behavior and what you just posted here definitely has proves that stereotype definitely has truth. You feel that you should be doing it because in your opinion they DESERVE it.I delude myself into thinking my asshole nature is beneficial to all social situations. Really, I think my friends appreciate my company because I say the type of things that nobody else can get away with. I'm generally not mean in an unnecessary way. If I'm going to be a dick, it'll be for a reason. Such as somebody basing their stupid Te opinion on a logical fallacy, someone complaining about things that are their fault, or people living in their own "special snowflake" reality. Narcissists are my favorite to be dicks to because I go for the emotional jugular to watch them bleed out. The trade off with being a (un)necessary asshole is people need societal norms stripped away and emotions temporarily drained in order to have true insight into themselves. I'm not bizarrely proud that I'm an asshole, but I don't want to wear a mask (all the time, sometimes we all have to) and many people alter their perception of reality because they place such an emphasis on societal factors such as sensitivity, emotional cognizance, gender roles, and "Doing things the right way"; an SJism. It's good, however, to have tertiary Fe in order to be aware of when NOT to be an asshole. If I completely lacked Fe, I'd make jokes about the dead guy at his funeral. Yeah, I might be an asshole, but I'm not a dick.
I think that was a good ENTP response and I think more this way: "Hey you do your thing that is unique for you and I'll do mine." I've also mentioned on here that I am a high functioning sociopath, in that my emotional trough is very shallow and I don't have affective empathy (I do possess cognitive empathy). My friends know this and like me just the same. I can get away with saying fucked up things because they don't expect me to act a certain, "normal" way.Well, I get that not all the ENTPs are the same. Some of you truly have a thrill in doing things that would be classified as insensitive asshole behavior and what you just posted here definitely has proves that stereotype definitely has truth.

But this stereotype is just that, it doesn't apply to all of us ENTPs. Perhaps we have developed our sensitive feelings better as we age older. Or perhaps straight from youth, my mother, my teachers and people I chose to be friends with taught me well on respecting other people, to not attack them whether or not they deserve it. I grew up in the "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it" mentality. I never understood what the thrill is with being an asshole and insult others.
There IS thrill in arguing and debating, sure, but thrill in attacking others and make others feel insignificant is not what it is about, for me.
