Alright, a couple other types have this and we need one of our own.

The goal is to build the ENTP community by increasing our threshold for genius insight & debauchery. After all, what type better captures the essence of class & crass? For current active users, feel free to re-introduce yourself. I, of course, will find new users and just quote them on this page, thereby forcing them to run the gauntlet. Here's some questions to help others know who you are. You can remain relatively anonymous but try to give us some information that helps set you apart as a unique user. Otherwise, you're just an avatar without a personality, and no ENTP should be content with being boring.

You can copy & paste this
Basic Questions:
1) Age or Age Range?
2) City, Country and/or Region?
3) Tell us something about your social life?
4) Current occupation and/or career aspirations?

ENTP Formalities
5) Say something shamelessly cocky about yourself
6) Now something shamefully embarrassing
7) What do you hope to gain with the knowledge you're an ENTP
8) You know you're an ENTP because...

Here's my answers as examples:
1) I'm 27 or I could say mid 20s, older than 21, or 18-30 depending on how specific I want to get.
2) I live in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, and/or North America. At least tell us if you're North America, Europe, Australia, or other.
3) I was in a fraternity in college. Someone else might say "I have a cat" or "I'm wanted for money laundering in 3 states"
4) I'm doing sales but I'd like to do internet marketing or perhaps become a psychologist.
5) I made mostly A's while rarely studying throughout school/college. I can do a 30 second keg-stand. I once convinced an entire bar I was a famous Scottish Rugby player, for a night.
6) My mom told me to plant a flower plant. I dug a whole and placed the plant, while in the pot it came with, into the ground. Inferior Si makes me seem like I have no common sense. I once spent 10 minutes trying to open a trashbag.
7) I wish to continue to connect to others who are similar and help new learners understand aspects of typology. Perhaps someone else just wants to learn function theory.
8) When I'm bored, I can amuse myself by getting lost in my mind for hours. I argued with a professor, once, and switched sides when other students chimed in.

Basic Questions:
1) Age or Age Range?
Okay, I'll bite because non-responded threads are just sad. Shall we say over 30?

2) City, Country and/or Region?
Now, or where I grew up? I grew up in Chicago, spent a lot of time in LA, but I don't live in either place now. Still in the U.S. though.

3) Tell us something about your social life?
I'm quieter these days, but I was also in a fraternity. College was quite the whirlwind. Not so much these days. I'm still youngish, but I'm too tired now for that shit.

4) Current occupation and/or career aspirations?
I don't even want to explain it. This is the most annoying question I ever get. It's been years and I still don't know how to get people outside of the industry to understand it.


ENTP Formalities
5) Say something shamelessly cocky about yourself
I graduated from college Magna Cum Laude (fuck you stats it should have been Summa). Oh, and I was a top ten nationally ranked snowboarder back in the day. Then I went and broke myself. Oops.

6) Now something shamefully embarrassing
Where to start? Killing flowers is kind of rookie shit, man. I've been in unnecessary brawls. Shit my pants. You name the shame and I've probably participated in it.

7) What do you hope to gain with the knowledge you're an ENTP
Gain? I suppose the knowledge that it's okay to be who I am. As independent as ENTPs tend to be I think it's a cross-type and cross-cultural desire to know that you're fine as who you are. That you have a benefit to add to the world.

8) You know you're an ENTP because...
Because I had a moment of clarity when I realized that I think aloud and don't cloister my thoughts until Ti can convince me that it's okay to say them.

There you go @Drunk Parrot

I don't usually do long form, but I like you, and I thought I'd contribute.

@TimeWillTell @psychedelicmango @johnnyyukon @SilentButDeadly @Obv @desire machine @katemess @knucklebunny @Desthro @Jamaia @IDontThinkSo @spidershane @draculaoverlord @jamjoint @LoveDragonDon @Geonerd @Scarlet_Heart @FueledByEvil @adultchildofalieninvaders @italix @knucklebunny @tanstaafl28 You guys too. I'm channeling my inner ESFJ and making you participate in these activities. It's good for your Fe, though :wink:
@Haldir braved through it and now we know this about him:

He works for the Mafia!

seems like fun ... filled in questionnaire to follow.

Just clocking out for the day.

..wait ...
wow this post was useless......bbl
Terrible form.

But.. but... I want to suck at FE! I want to stay ENTP!
Ti gives your ENTPness girth, but Fe is what gives it depth. Together, you can shower so many people with hefty Ne loads.

Basic Questions:
1) Age or Age Range? In 30s
2) City, Country and/or Region? Virginia
3) Tell us something about your social life? I am absolutely very outgoing. I like to go out almost daily to join a group either for hikes, interests/hobbies, public events or socializing.
4) Current occupation and/or career aspirations? Want to become a Video Game Designer that's integrated with movie acting.

ENTP Formalities
5) Say something shamelessly cocky about yourself

Since I am interested in A LOT of things, and always read on knowledge and news thus I see myself as not ignorant about much. I see a lot of other people as ignorant, they are not caught up with what I would know, etc.

6) Now something shamefully embarrassing

I did not yet have that many girlfriends or sex with beautiful women.

7) What do you hope to gain with the knowledge you're an ENTP

Why I act the way I am, and why others act the way they are. What I am into, what others are into. What kind of friends and mates are fit for me.

8) You know you're an ENTP because...

It FITS flawlessly. Very P, N, T and definitely not an Introvert despite how much I love to watch movies, TV and goto Comic Cons, do geeky stuff.

1) Age or Age Range?

21, which is not my perceived age. It takes a while to convince the bouncers at the clubs (and people at movie theaters for PG-16 movies), but at least I can get children's tickets on public transport when I'm low on cash.

2) City, Country and/or Region?

Finland, near Helsinki.

3) Tell us something about your social life?

"I'm scared. It's like you know everything about everyone already" - ISFJ
"My friend count remains constant because I make about as many friends on Friday nights as I lose" - Me

4) Current occupation and/or career aspirations?

Not really sure yet. I'd rather do multiple things than just stick to one.

5) Say something shamelessly cocky about yourself

I've actually won a prize for being the one to do most stupid shit over the course of two nights. I have no sense of shame if it's beneficial for something I set my mind to

6) Now something shamefully embarrassing

My balance is the absolute worst. Tripping over my own feet on flat ground whilst sober? Why not.

7) What do you hope to gain with the knowledge you're an ENTP

I already learned that I'm not special after all. I like to see to what extent I'm able to relate to other ENTPs. I recently met another ENTP female, which explained why I connected with her despite a lot of initial differences.

8) You know you're an ENTP because...

Because my friend told me I can't be INTP :( My self reflection is quite shit considering that I actually believed I was for a while, though.

@Drunk Parrot you should add one after Career aspiration on something like "What do you want to see before you die" or "What is the biggest question about the universe" kind of question.


For that, mine would be that we are able to Travel to other galaxies. Or are we truly alone in the universe?

Just because all the other ENTPs aren't even answering the question:

Basic Questions:
1) Age or Age Range?
33

2) City, Country and/or Region?
It's in my profile

3) Tell us something about your social life?
I use and abuse people for my own personal delight. If I care about you, I'll probably let you use and abuse me. . .

4) Current occupation and/or career aspirations?
I want to be self-employed. Figuring out how to do that without being all xSxJ is hard.

ENTP Formalities
5) Say something shamelessly cocky about yourself
I'm fucking amazing, and people love me

6) Now something shamefully embarrassing
I wish everyone loved me as much as I imagine them doing so

7) What do you hope to gain with the knowledge you're an ENTP
I already knew, this forum is fantastic though

8) You know you're an ENTP because...
I can't find my keys ever. Though I finally got around to installing a key-hook at home, only to misplace my keys while I was at work.

Please help me compile data; would also be cool to know who you are. Here's some questions...
Canadian; born mid-seventies. Father who builds technology solutions. I appreciate reality for what it is, but cant seem to do what I see clearly should be done. I don't know that "I am an ENTP", but I recognize that ENTP is the most appropriate MBTI descriptor for me. I seek to understand and interact with myself and my world better. I rely on my intuitive, extroverted intelligence to conduct my behavior.

Did I miss anything?

Try us. Pretend you're answering a sincere question from a puppy eyed 7 year old boy that looks up to you. You wouldn't brush him off would you?

If you really want me to attempt to explain then I will, but you have to answer with why in the living hell you didn't strap a condom on. I wouldn't hurt a puppy, but I also wouldn't impregnate a girl I didn't want to stay with. I'm not judging you. I know that shit happens. Just...three? That's a lot.

So, here you go: My specialty is in regulating research on humans (hence my interest in this forum). I've worked in every facet of academia from sociology to neurology. I hope that is understandable and succinct.
