A Test (Feel free to take it yourself)

1. ENTPs lead with Extroverted Intuition – a function that explores, invents and seeks to manipulate its environment. INTPs lead with Introverted Thinking – a function that seeks to verify, rationalize and understand its environment without bias.

On the one hand, my home reflects my psyche in spades. On the other hand, I adapt and blend to bland outside my safe space Chez Dark.

2. ENTPs show their goofy and lighthearted sides to the world. INTPs show their goofy and lighthearted sides to the people they know well.

The internet isn't the world, it's an anonymous aspect of it. So while I can't claim to know all my little internet friends well, I can claim to know the aspects of themselves they present well enough to freely liken Smurfs to Ding Dings.

3. ENTPs are usually able to pick up on how others are feeling, even if they don’t make others’ feelings a priority. INTPs often struggle to pick up on how others are feeling and may worry about misunderstanding signals.

'Worry' is too strong of a word. I'll allow for the possibility of misunderstanding signals because I'm mostly otherwise focused, but it's not a priority.

4. ENTPs rebel against traditional ways of structuring their lives. INTPs see the value – and often find comfort in – traditional forms of structure.

Structure is good. Right up until it chafes.

5. ENTPs brainstorm first and analyze second. INTPs analyze first and brainstorm second.

I'll brainstorm first with the little things and analyze first with the big things. What's for dinner? v Who's winning 2016?

6. ENTPs are highly invested in personal development and growth. INTPs are highly invested in developing an unbiased perception of themselves.

Having unbiased perception of oneself is the pinnacle of personal development and growth. Am I missing something?

7. ENTPs tend to leap before they look. INTPs tend to look before they leap.

I tend to look first. Ok, maybe it's just a glance on occasion but this should count

8. ENTPs tend to identify as ambiverts. INTPs tend to identify as definite introverts.

Ambi until memories of childhood past rear their ugly heads, the foundation is definitely intro.

9. ENTPs are more at risk of losing touch with their rational, grounded side when they get carried away with a new idea. INTPs are more at risk of losing touch with their inventive, creative side when they get absorbed in logical analysis.

These are both risks I'm willing to take.

10. ENTPs are charismatic and persuasive – seeing convincing others to do things their way as a fun challenge. INTPs dislike having to persuade others to do things their way, and wish that others would just intuitively know what they wanted.

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. I don't see myself as particularly charismatic or persuasive...more selfish and pragmatic.

11. ENTPs enlist others to take care of the details when they want a project accomplished. INTPs are more likely to tackle the details themselves – in the name of accuracy – when they want a project accomplished.

Oh no. If you want it done right...

12. ENTPs tend to appear energetic and outgoing to others, even though they experience long periods of introverted focus and analysis. INTPs tend to appear laid-back and reserved to others, even though they have bouts of excitement and enthusiasm.

Laid-back with frequent bouts. Frequent childlike bouts.

13. ENTPs like to be alone with other people nearby – so they can share new ideas or thoughts if they come up. INTPs prefer to be completely alone when they’re alone, so they can ensure their thought process won’t be interrupted.

I like having one other person nearby, more than that and it's like you need multiple filters or something. Also: Cats are people too.

14. ENTPs form an idea and then seek to manipulate the world around them to concede to their idea. INTPs evaluate the logic at hand and then form an idea that best corresponds to that logic.

Manipulation makes for bad karma. See: Politics

15. ENTPs jump on new ideas and wish to explore them as soon as they come up. INTPs entertain new ideas only once they have considered how the idea fits with their existing schema of understanding.

I'll almost always answer the door, inviting them in for coffee is another story.

16. ENTPs enjoy debating and discussing ideas as a means of considering alternate perspectives and better understanding the topic. INTPs prefer independently reading and reflecting on a topic in order to gain a thorough understanding of it.

Debate is fucking tedious.

17. ENTPs are often excited by personality theory and may immediately consider or ‘try on’ different types for size. INTPs are often skeptical of personality theory and will only begin to trust it once they consistently test as an INTP across various tests and assessments.

INFP?

18. ENTPs are on an eternal quest for possibility, backed up by logic and accuracy. INTPs are on an eternal quest for truth, backed up by possibility.

Truth. Although I'll allow for the possibility that I lie to myself.

Those are strong and accurate arguments. You know, I really look up to 'ambiverts' (i.e. people who get as close to ambiversion as typology allows one to), so I hope you took the speculations as a compliment.

So, INTPs taking these questions should indeed answer 'both' (1pnt) or even 'ENTP' (2pnts) on some questions, accumulating 7pnts (=ROUNDUP((1/4)*18)*1,5);0) or so for a balanced personality.

Also, WHY are Ding Dings back. How are @Clivy's infantilities being promoted lol. From now on, when we talk about Ding Dings, we talk about this pliable toy:

It came down to this or another poo song.
The poo song? Even I am not that immature to post that!

I guess I'm not most idiotic one here... I don't know how I should feel about this. |:{

That would be rather Te thing (consistency of produced data). IMHO INTP need to understand the underlying concepts to verify for him/herself. Doing test and getting a bunch of percentages helps you little.

1. ENTPs lead with Extroverted Intuition – a function that explores, invents and seeks to manipulate its environment. INTPs lead with Introverted Thinking – a function that seeks to verify, rationalize and understand its environment without bias.

INTP

2. ENTPs show their goofy and lighthearted sides to the world. INTPs show their goofy and lighthearted sides to the people they know well.

INTP

3. ENTPs are usually able to pick up on how others are feeling, even if they don’t make others’ feelings a priority. INTPs often struggle to pick up on how others are feeling and may worry about misunderstanding signals.

I'm usually able to pick up on how others are feeling if it isn't too subtle, but I worry about misunderstanding signals. So...hybrid?

4. ENTPs rebel against traditional ways of structuring their lives. INTPs see the value – and often find comfort in – traditional forms of structure.

INTP

5. ENTPs brainstorm first and analyze second. INTPs analyze first and brainstorm second.

Um...ENTP? Perhaps I don't understand this question. How can you analyze something if you haven't come up with it yet?

6. ENTPs are highly invested in personal development and growth. INTPs are highly invested in developing an unbiased perception of themselves.

Somewhat both, though I think the "unbiased perception" has greater importance.

7. ENTPs tend to leap before they look. INTPs tend to look before they leap.

INTP, but if the action involves a significant level of planning, I tend to only "look" partially before leaping.

8. ENTPs tend to identify as ambiverts. INTPs tend to identify as definite introverts.

INTROVERT.

9. ENTPs are more at risk of losing touch with their rational, grounded side when they get carried away with a new idea. INTPs are more at risk of losing touch with their inventive, creative side when they get absorbed in logical analysis.

INTP, to the point where sometimes I lose my inventive and creative side too much.

10. ENTPs are charismatic and persuasive – seeing convincing others to do things their way as a fun challenge. INTPs dislike having to persuade others to do things their way, and wish that others would just intuitively know what they wanted.

INTP, though I don't wish others would just intuitively know. I like teaching rather than persuading.

11. ENTPs enlist others to take care of the details when they want a project accomplished. INTPs are more likely to tackle the details themselves – in the name of accuracy – when they want a project accomplished.

INTP, sort of. I don't tackle them for the sake of accuracy. I like to watch the process of the details coming together to make the final project. It's like watching a picture being painted.

12. ENTPs tend to appear energetic and outgoing to others, even though they experience long periods of introverted focus and analysis. INTPs tend to appear laid-back and reserved to others, even though they have bouts of excitement and enthusiasm.

INTP

13. ENTPs like to be alone with other people nearby – so they can share new ideas or thoughts if they come up. INTPs prefer to be completely alone when they’re alone, so they can ensure their thought process won’t be interrupted.

ENTP, but change "other people" to "one person I trust a great deal."

14. ENTPs form an idea and then seek to manipulate the world around them to concede to their idea. INTPs evaluate the logic at hand and then form an idea that best corresponds to that logic.

INTP

15. ENTPs jump on new ideas and wish to explore them as soon as they come up. INTPs entertain new ideas only once they have considered how the idea fits with their existing schema of understanding.

INTP

16. ENTPs enjoy debating and discussing ideas as a means of considering alternate perspectives and better understanding the topic. INTPs prefer independently reading and reflecting on a topic in order to gain a thorough understanding of it.

Both, though I only enjoy a debate if the other participant isn't going to go bananas with anger.

17. ENTPs are often excited by personality theory and may immediately consider or ‘try on’ different types for size. INTPs are often skeptical of personality theory and will only begin to trust it once they consistently test as an INTP across various tests and assessments.

INTP, though I really only trusted it when I was surprised by the accuracy and read about how it worked.

18. ENTPs are on an eternal quest for possibility, backed up by logic and accuracy. INTPs are on an eternal quest for truth, backed up by possibility.

ENTP. Your strong presence and expression on this forum is pure extroversion. What seems to energize you the most is sharing your anecdotes, stories and humorous twist on things, trolling, amusing connections. It's all external; you're bleeding Ne.

Plus, Ne-dom is just way cooler. Shh.

4. ENTPs rebel against traditional ways of structuring their lives. INTPs see the value – and often find comfort in – traditional forms of structure.

ENTP - Although I'm not sure I find this statement true. I evaluate all structure to determine if it makes sense, or I like it.

5. ENTPs brainstorm first and analyze second. INTPs analyze first and brainstorm second.

INTP all the way

6. ENTPs are highly invested in personal development and growth. INTPs are highly invested in developing an unbiased perception of themselves.

INTP I guess. I agree question is tough to decipher.

7. ENTPs tend to leap before they look. INTPs tend to look before they leap.

INTP - I'll look, and despite the gut wrenching I'll sometimes still leap.

8. ENTPs tend to identify as ambiverts. INTPs tend to identify as definite introverts.

INTP

9. ENTPs are more at risk of losing touch with their rational, grounded side when they get carried away with a new idea. INTPs are more at risk of losing touch with their inventive, creative side when they get absorbed in logical analysis.

More INTP than ENTP but I would have to ay that the logical analysis often pulls from the inventive creative side, because I end up often looking at it from a different angle than others often bringing about other solutions. I do know that when I do linear tasks like a lot of data entry and the like my inventive/creative side suffers.

10. ENTPs are charismatic and persuasive – seeing convincing others to do things their way as a fun challenge. INTPs dislike having to persuade others to do things their way, and wish that others would just intuitively know what they wanted.

INTP

11. ENTPs enlist others to take care of the details when they want a project accomplished. INTPs are more likely to tackle the details themselves – in the name of accuracy – when they want a project accomplished.

INTP - but I will pass off any menial data input that I can

INTP(Although this would eliminate us from the ruling the world thread)

Is this why @daleks_exterminate is a different type every month?
I've only changed my type 4x in the span of years.

I started as an intp.
Then I realized I was a ne not a ti dom so I switched to entp.

After a while I switched to infj to troll infjs. Was fun for a bit, changed back to entp.

I've questioned intp and entp a few times but that is pretty normal.

And finally I'm at estj, but that happened when I started a mistype thread and also saw so many people changing their types to the most ridiculous things I decided it would be fun to join.

So doesn't actually apply.
