Hello ENTP's,

I've recently got note of MBTI by my old boss.He told me he was pretty sure I am an ENTP. I also did the test which had the same result.

The more I read on these forums the less sure I am about being ENTP. I wanna share some personality traits with u guys and maybe u can give me your opinions. Some of the traits I notice about myself are typical ENFP things ( I think ).

Introduction
I am a 19 year old male and in my last year of studying software engineering. I studied marketing before but I quit it was too easy I suppose! I like to workout alot.

Curiosity
I've always been curious about anything and everything. I drive people crazy with asking the why questions. My mom told me a while ago when I was like 3 - 4 years old I would ask random people on the street questions such as: Why are u bald sir? Why do u have such large boobs? She was pretty embarrassed as u can imagine.

New ideas
I'm constantly busy with new things and have a hard time sticking to projects or ideas.
This also applies to work. I've had a couple of programming jobs which paid very well. My boss offered me a raise but because I was bored there I moved on to a new programming job, which paid less but was a new environment. People said I was crazy for doing that, but I just wanted to move on I guess.

Metaphysics/Philosophy/Life

When I'm not busy or anything I constantly think about reality,life, purpose. I really love to watch documentaries about consciousness,metaphysics, nature, life, the universe. When I was younger I was asking the 'big' questions too much, upon to the point where it almost drove me crazy. I also had a period of time where I thought I suffered derealization. I think my brain went into overload because I couldn't apply logic to what I was thinking (which was weird shit haha).

Care for people
I really don't care for 99% of the people, only loved ones and family. When I move on to something new I totally forget about the friends I made there and don't even look back once. I also have no to little guild. I also tend to be a little narcisitic haha ;).

Interested in people
I love to lie to people just to see how they react. I do this alot, first I convince people I'm really speaking the truth too see their reaction, afterwards I have a hard time convincing them it was a joke to just see how they reacted. Also, body language, personality etc really interest me. Basicly what makes the people tick!

Hugging/Touching
I love to hug and touch people whom I close to when they are near. This is something which I believe is not common for ENTP´s? I recently realised I really do this alot. Just a tap on the shoulder, a hug, physical contact.

Debating
I like to debate I suppose. I am open minded and usually come up with arguments for both people involved. But here is the thing. When I am debating with this guy who is 97% an ENTJ, I usually get really pissed off. He is very narrow minded and isn't open to new ideas.The ENTJ has his own idea about how a project should go, I come up with a ton of ideas but he doesn't stop arguing for his own idea. He is also very aggresive about it ( it seems ), but when I told him that he said it isn't intended that way. At some point I think its pointless to talk to this guy and stop debating, because I feel I'm gonna get really angry and might attack him. This doesn't sound very ENTP like to me?



I´m really curious what u guys think about this.

seems very similar to me! What do you consider typical ENFP things in the above list? Remember MBTI isn't black and white, some people have higher thinking %s than others, you might be more balanced, hence the ambiguity :)

Thanks for your response! I think the hugging and touching stuff, my people skills, and the seek for meaning in life.

You're an ENTP alright.

Now you just need to find out your enneagram. I would bet it is 7.

And please, stop writing u when you mean you
dude right?

ENTP's have Fe, so I wouldn't attribute people skills to ENFP.

you sound like an ENTP 7w8.

Not much is drawing a line between ENTP and ESTP for me here. Either you are an ENTP (think delicious strawberry muffin), but a lack-luster one (think strawberry muffin with only the stump), or you're an ESTP, which is worse, but fortunately you'll never see why.
