This is a discussion on I have a hard time figuring out my type... within the What's my personality type? forums, part of the Personality Cafe category; I changed the post before this one, I relate more to the ENTP not to the INTP...

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    I changed the post before this one, I relate more to the ENTP not to the INTP

    I definitely think it's possible that you could be ENTP.

    However, it's pretty difficult for me to type you because I'm unsure how genuine your questionnaire is. You talk about each function ENTPs have, give examples of how you relate to them, and then essentially ask "I'm an Ne user, right?". I doubt you're actively trying to manipulate your questions to look like a specific type, but by doing what you're doing, it's naturally going to shift people's perspectives in that direction instead of allowing them to look at the bigger picture - that you could possibly be another type other than ENTP.

    What you should do if you really want an accurate typing is fill out a questionnaire. That way, the questions aren't as slanted, and because of this, we'll be able to see even more aspects of your personality - perhaps ones that you didn't even realize you had.

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    Yeah, I´ll do that. It would be helpful if you could come back when I´ve filled out the questionnaire.

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?
    The fact that I am a quite sensitive person although I am still a quite logical individual just messes with my mind. That´s the problem. I also have trouble accepting the sterotype that ENTPs are rebellious or something (because I am not). I do still think I use Ne in favor of Se.

    2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
    I yearn for knowledge and a good job that utilises my skills and that is intellectually stimulating. I love to talk and would probably become quite the preacher or teacher because of my rhetoric abilities. I do however have a knack for deviating from dogma (so I don´t know if I would be a very stable pracher, so to speak). I also feel that I want a good wife, and children. The reason why I yearn after knowledge is because it´s so freaking stimulating to learn! I also yearn after knowledge because it gives me power over my environment. I also yearn after it because it makes me understand the world and helps me to not judge people to harshly.

    I yearn for a good job simply because I want to do what I wanna do, simply put.
    I also yearn for happiness and meaning and that stuff. I would like my life to have some meaning because I wouldn´t have any reason to live if my life didn´t have meaning and stuff. I want happiness so that I don´t feel like I wanna take my life before I would be ready for such a heavy decision.

    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
    I felt at my finest when I shared my experience from being a volounteer at Dreamcenter in LA. I walked on stage, opened uo with a joke and then held like a mini-sermon during like 5-10min. What I loved about this was how responsive the audience was (they lasughed at my jokes) and the admiration I gained after I had shared my experience. I also loved to just share and talk in a more formal manner than I am used too. It was also so nice to be able to speak without being interrupted (I hate that).

    4) What makes you feel inferior?
    When I am wrong, when somebody else gains recognision that I should rightfully have. That´s about it. I also feel inferior when people I trust stab me in the back.

    5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
    When I make decisions I often think about how my decision will impact me and how it will impact others. If it will impact others in a negative way I don´t wanna do it. If I am making a decision that does not include other people I tend to go with a gut feeling or on a feeling of how things ought to be. I ought to talk to Miranda, she´s going through rough times. I ought to apologize. I also go on what is the most rational thing to be done and yes I weigh pro´s and con´s when I am making certain decisions.

    6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
    First off I usually don´t like group projects because I see it as Innefficient to try to take into account everybody´s opinion while working. I don´t have something against being the leader if everybody obeys my vision of how the project should work. I can be open to suggestions but only if those suggestions are grounded in something we can actually do (I don´t like whishful thinking or impractical ideas).

    8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)
    I more like theorizing than anything else, I do however memorize quite alot (to remember stuff). I do learn more effectively though if I theorize.

    9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?
    I am not the most organized when it comes to the outside world. I am quite oblivious to the little details you have to attain to in the outside world. Therefore I usually live inside my head or inside the knowledge of a computer or something.

    10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
    First off I would see if the idea makes sense, if it does than I will not feel compelled to seek information that supports it, but in order to satisfy my doubtful brain I endup doing so.

    11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
    I have a hard time trying to attain to everybody´s needs all the time. I would much rather do my thing and follow what I believe. I would however compromise harmony if someone´s is behaving like a jerk to someone else or saying something unethical. I would challenge them hard.

    12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?
    Depends, sometimes I speak before thinking (if I am REALLY excited about something) or I think before speaking (often happens when I want to ensure that I am using the right words.

    13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
    I could jump into action if I am being really careless but I usually like to know what I am going into.

    14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
    Well, that depens on who is influencing me at the moment. If someone else suggests we should go I probably would go. I would feel that it is quite a difficult dilemma though. Sometimes I don´t wanna hang out with friends (they can become annoying at times).

    15) How do you act when you're stressed out?
    I start bossing over everyone and I would start questioning people on whatever or not they have done a good work. If I am super stressed out I would however stop doing whatever it is I am doing and just refuse to do anything. At that period of time I would be really embarassed about my incompetence.

    16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
    I hate people who hurt myself and other people deliberately. And what I mean by deliberatly is that you think it is a sport to play with others emotions. I hate that so much. If you are such a person, read up about what is right and what is wrong, I doubt that you will competent enough to learn that though.

    17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
    Best question ever!
    I love talking about history, religion or just anyting that has a connection to the thing I just were talking about! I love just going from topic to topic in rapid speed and covering ethical and rational aspects of certain time periods etc.

    18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life?
    Doing all the household chores. End of story.

    19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality ?
    My friends perceive me as a walking encyclopedia that they can ask anything and a advice or knowledge will spit out. They may also see me as a pretty serious guy, which is true when they are being mean to me or disrespectful of others. I am however a pretty easygoing person, until some jerk has hurt someone again.

    20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?
    I would like to hold a speech on all my opinions. Just saying, I would change the world. I would also like to read lots of wikipedia pages or write something on this forum, anything that could stimulate my restless mind.

    Interesting. After reading some of what you'd written, I figured you were quite young, so I checked your profile. Because you're only 14, it might be a bit more difficult to do this since your personality is still developing (my personality definitely wasn't as developed when I was 14 as it is now). Regardless, I'm going to try analyzing each question in order to come up with a type for you.

    1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?
    The fact that I am a quite sensitive person although I am still a quite logical individual just messes with my mind. That´s the problem. I also have trouble accepting the sterotype that ENTPs are rebellious or something (because I am not). I do still think I use Ne in favor of Se.

    That's pretty normal for most people, regardless of type. We all use both feeling and thinking functions, so it's understandable that you feel conflicted between them, but the fact that you are struggling between them could possibly suggest that neither is a dominant function for you. Also, stereotypes are just that - some of them may be true, but just because you're not rebellious doesn't mean you're not an ENTP.

    2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
    I yearn for knowledge and a good job that utilises my skills and that is intellectually stimulating. I love to talk and would probably become quite the preacher or teacher because of my rhetoric abilities. I do however have a knack for deviating from dogma (so I don´t know if I would be a very stable pracher, so to speak). I also feel that I want a good wife, and children. The reason why I yearn after knowledge is because it´s so freaking stimulating to learn! I also yearn after knowledge because it gives me power over my environment. I also yearn after it because it makes me understand the world and helps me to not judge people to harshly.


    I yearn for a good job simply because I want to do what I wanna do, simply put.
    I also yearn for happiness and meaning and that stuff. I would like my life to have some meaning because I wouldn´t have any reason to live if my life didn´t have meaning and stuff. I want happiness so that I don´t feel like I wanna take my life before I would be ready for such a heavy decision.

    What I'm getting from this is that you're most likely an extrovert. I also believe that you use Ne/Si, although it's unclear what order you use them in as of right now.

    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
    I felt at my finest when I shared my experience from being a volounteer at Dreamcenter in LA. I walked on stage, opened uo with a joke and then held like a mini-sermon during like 5-10min. What I loved about this was how responsive the audience was (they lasughed at my jokes) and the admiration I gained after I had shared my experience. I also loved to just share and talk in a more formal manner than I am used too. It was also so nice to be able to speak without being interrupted (I hate that).

    Again, you definitely seem like an extrovert. I'm not there's a whole lot more to draw from this response, though.

    4) What makes you feel inferior?
    When I am wrong, when somebody else gains recognision that I should rightfully have. That´s about it. I also feel inferior when people I trust stab me in the back.

    Definitely an extrovert - I don't really think I need to repeat myself again at this point. It's pretty clear by now. While I'm unsure about functions, I've definitely gotten the impression that you're an Enneagram type 3 by reading your last few answers.

    5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
    When I make decisions I often think about how my decision will impact me and how it will impact others. If it will impact others in a negative way I don´t wanna do it. If I am making a decision that does not include other people I tend to go with a gut feeling or on a feeling of how things ought to be. I ought to talk to Miranda, she´s going through rough times. I ought to apologize. I also go on what is the most rational thing to be done and yes I weigh pro´s and con´s when I am making certain decisions.

    I'm getting some sort of Fe/Ti combination from this, although I'm not certain. I'll have to read more.

    6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
    First off I usually don´t like group projects because I see it as Innefficient to try to take into account everybody´s opinion while working. I don´t have something against being the leader if everybody obeys my vision of how the project should work. I can be open to suggestions but only if those suggestions are grounded in something we can actually do (I don´t like whishful thinking or impractical ideas).

    This could be Te, actually. I guess part of this depends on what you mean by "impractical ideas," though. What's impractical to you may not seem impractical to someone else.

    8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)
    I more like theorizing than anything else, I do however memorize quite alot (to remember stuff). I do learn more effectively though if I theorize.

    Most likely Ne/Si.

    9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?
    I am not the most organized when it comes to the outside world. I am quite oblivious to the little details you have to attain to in the outside world. Therefore I usually live inside my head or inside the knowledge of a computer or something.

    I could see inferior Si here.

    10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
    First off I would see if the idea makes sense, if it does than I will not feel compelled to seek information that supports it, but in order to satisfy my doubtful brain I endup doing so.

    I think you're probably a thinking type rather than a feeling type. You didn't really talk about viewing new ideas from an ethical perspective but rather a logical one.

    11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
    I have a hard time trying to attain to everybody´s needs all the time. I would much rather do my thing and follow what I believe. I would however compromise harmony if someone´s is behaving like a jerk to someone else or saying something unethical. I would challenge them hard.

    Both Fe and Fi types can compromise harmony, but they'll typically have different reasons for doing so. In your case, it seems like you take more of an Fe approach when you talk about challenging people if they say "something unethical." Just the way you said it seems like you view ethics as something that needs to be agreed upon - 'what is the morally correct thing to do?'. That's much more Fe than Fi.

    12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?
    Depends, sometimes I speak before thinking (if I am REALLY excited about something) or I think before speaking (often happens when I want to ensure that I am using the right words.

    I could definitely see Ne/Ti here. Ne is a bit more impulsive and unconstrained, but at the same time, Ti strives for clarity and communicating its internal ideas in the right way.

    13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
    I could jump into action if I am being really careless but I usually like to know what I am going into.

    I'd say you're probably not a dominant Se type.

    14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
    Well, that depens on who is influencing me at the moment. If someone else suggests we should go I probably would go. I would feel that it is quite a difficult dilemma though. Sometimes I don´t wanna hang out with friends (they can become annoying at times).

    Extrovert, probably an Fe user as well.

    15) How do you act when you're stressed out?
    I start bossing over everyone and I would start questioning people on whatever or not they have done a good work. If I am super stressed out I would however stop doing whatever it is I am doing and just refuse to do anything. At that period of time I would be really embarassed about my incompetence.

    Again, you're probably a thinking type.

    16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
    I hate people who hurt myself and other people deliberately. And what I mean by deliberatly is that you think it is a sport to play with others emotions. I hate that so much. If you are such a person, read up about what is right and what is wrong, I doubt that you will competent enough to learn that though.

    "Read up about what is right and what is wrong?" That's definitely Fe. Fe tends to prize objective morality over subjective morality, and that's exactly what you're doing here.

    17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
    Best question ever!
    I love talking about history, religion or just anyting that has a connection to the thing I just were talking about! I love just going from topic to topic in rapid speed and covering ethical and rational aspects of certain time periods etc.

    Ne/Si most likely, but definitely an extrovert.

    18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life?
    Doing all the household chores. End of story.

    Yeah, most people don't really like chores all that much. :P

    19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality ?
    My friends perceive me as a walking encyclopedia that they can ask anything and a advice or knowledge will spit out. They may also see me as a pretty serious guy, which is true when they are being mean to me or disrespectful of others. I am however a pretty easygoing person, until some jerk has hurt someone again.

    Fe actually seems quite strong here.

    20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?
    I would like to hold a speech on all my opinions. Just saying, I would change the world. I would also like to read lots of wikipedia pages or write something on this forum, anything that could stimulate my restless mind.

    Ne/Fe.
    After reading this questionnaire, I'd say ENTP is probably most likely, while ESFJ is second-most likely. Since you're so young, though, whatever type you choose to label yourself as should definitely be tentative. As you mature, you'll find that your personality will undergo some changes, and that's normal.

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    Thanks for your answer!
    It really helped clear up some things. I´m sorry if my answers were a little short (I´m not as introspective as I should be).

  8. #27

    xSFJ or xNFP. I don't see high Ti preference.

    Thanks man! I felt something was wrong... Then ENFP it is!

    Not sure if sarcasm or serious but just to clarify - looots of ethics fixation. Look at how bunny rabbit "dissected" your OP - high Ti mark. Didn't see it in your posts. As for "loves attention/being in center of it" = Fe, I don't think it's right. Lots of show-off-y artists are FPs. Likely type 3 enneagram related which is not uncommon type for all ExxPs.

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    I were actually serious about the ENFP thing. I strongly believe I'm an Ne dom or auxillary so I don't think I am an SFJ. I also do not exhibit some of the charecteristics of Fe so if I had Fe it would be in the lower half of the stack. I can also relate to tertairy Te. I can relate to some aspects of inferior Te. I cannot see me as a dominant Fi user though (or can I?). What I can relate to in inferior Te is that I think that yes, most of todays systems are a cause of individual suffering (not quite sure about this though so correct me if I am wrong). I use alot of facts based reasoning in my private investigations of things (could be Te?).
