Pleasing ENTPs 101

Some weeks ago I described how to trigger the feeling of ENTPs and at some points how to make them upset. Now I am thinking. I am an ENTP and why in the world did I post a guide to make me upset? Like I will come to a group of people and with a strange smile asking them to ruin my mood? Thus, I am going to share how to please ENTPs easily. This is still related to how our feeling works.

Compliments

We are, indeed, narcissistic. Thus, giving honest compliment will make our day. However, our responses are unusual. ENTPs will not directly accept the compliment by saying thanks or making any counter-compliment. Instead, we often sarcastically self-deprecate ourselves but deep inside we loudly shout: HELL YEAAAAAH I AM AWESOME. Here is an example of ENTP gets a compliment.

One day in a football game

INFJ: Hey, you did well, man. That was amazing goal.

ENTP: Nah, I saw a 5 year-old kid did better yesterday.

Implicature: I KNOW RIGHT, can you say that again?

Ideas

This part related to how people should deal with ENTPs who are in trouble. The subtitle above includes: solutions, advises and opinions. ENTPs tend to come with tons of ideas which are mostly produced by the district in their brain called The Fictional Problem where most of the citizens are over-thinkers. However, though we are introvert thinkers, we gladly listen to any brilliant points of view and reasonable feedback from others. We appreciate any good ideas and solution through our problem more than we do to emotional supports. Therefore, instead of saying wise words or motivational speech, we would be happier if you come up with ‘what if…’ or any other ways that convey your ideas, solutions, and any doable plan.

Coffee (or anything with alcohol if they drink. Vodka, Champagne, whatever)

coffee-n-a-hug-in-a-cup

In my case it’s coffee, black coffee. For Tony Stark, probably, vodka or any expensive champagne. However, it is serious! I mean, coffee is not a drink. It is a hug. If you have ENTP friends and they come with long face, say the magic words: ‘Do you want it black, with sugar, or creamer?’ (for coffee drinker) or say nothing but throw a can of cold beer to them (for the one who drinks alcohol). As simple as that.

Deep Conversations

If any of you still think that ENTPs are reserved and quiet, then there is only one possibility: You are not ready for deep conversation and ENTPs know who to talk with. Exploring unrealistic ideas and thousand possibilities of the existence of aliens or wormhole that leads to the past are some of many favorite topics that we like to discuss. Should it ended in debate-sparing session, ENTPs will be happier. Losing it will make them respect their discussion partner, and winning the debate will pleased those ENTPs for sure. However, not all people can stand discussing such things for hours. So, are you ready to talk about bullshits and parallel universe?

Those are How To Please ENTP 101. Effortless aren’t they?

ENTP in Video Games: We Don’t Heal, We Destroy Things and Kill People

It has been around four months for me struggling in this country. Soon I will face my first semester exam which means I am a quarter way done (sighing deeply). Anyway, I suddenly got hit by the fact that I have not played any video game for about four months and it brought good-old-days-memory storm to my mind. I used to play lots of video games especially RPG and MMORPG back then. I played MOBA too, though! Thus, questions came up: What is ENTPs’ most favorite class type in video games? Does our type influence our choices? I started to open the old files in my brain and found some dusty memories of video games that I have played and classes I chose. One thing, as long as I remembered, I’ve never played as priest or any supportive classes. Anyway, here they are!

Ragnarok Online (2003-2005)-Assassin

Character_Assassin.jpg

Stealthy, deadly, undetected and highly agile were the most features that I sought when I played Ragnarok Online in late 2003. For those reasons, I chose to play as thief which was later evolved into rogue then assassin. I think until now, the idea of killing people without being detected and the use of blades and katar are still very interesting to me. Even Assassin’s Creed is still one of my favorite franchise.

Rising Force (2005-2008)-Armor Rider

20070329200635461.jpg

When the game was released, as usual, I looked for any stealthy class with dagger, hidden blades or anything related to assassin. Unfortunately, there was no such things in RF online. The stealthy assassins were replaced by rangers with rifles and I was not interested for the reasons I did not know. Thus, following my next obsession of Gundam, I chose Armor Rider from The Bellato Union. Evolved from Specialist which was similar to Craftsman or Smiths in other RPG, Armor Rider use two types of Massive Armor Units, Goliath the melee gorilla and Catapult the one with canon and heavy machine guns.  I turned from a silent undetected killer into a notorious pilot with his giant robots who kills other races.

Defense of The Ancient (2004-2011)-Moghul Khan (Orc- Berserker)

mogul_khan_axe_dota_2_art_94778_1920x1200.jpg

I do not know how it was started but I turned into savage when I played DoTA several years ago. Instead of Riki or Mortred who are obviously stealthy and agile, my favorite was Axe, a tanker. That was the first time I enjoyed playing video game as a tank. Probably because Axe is a unique tanker with counter helix that deals damages as he gets hit by the enemies. A tank with auto-counter attack. He is untouchable.

The Elder Scroll V-Skyrim (2012-Now)-Stealth Archer

663346-1376566445.jpg

I turn my back into stealthy killing machine again, but now it comes with ranged weapon which makes me more difficult to be detected. Playing as archer in Skyrim is so much fun. You will enjoy killing various kinds of creatures in the universe from bandits to giants from distance. Watching them figuring out where the hell the arrows come from and finally die miserably. Further, you will be able to kill enemy with single shot which is good and bad. It is efficient but you don’t get lots of chances to develop your light armor ability. Overall, archer is lots of fun.

I tried to remember if I ever played as any kind of supportive class such as Cleric, Priest or any kind of healer but I have no memories about being someone who heals and gives lots of buff. Thus, I guess ENTPs are not interested in playing as support. We either stealth, go berserk, or deals an instant kill attack. I thought I have also played as Wizard for short period of time. How about you guys? What’s your class preference in video game?

ENTP: Sometimes the T stands for Troll and the P Stands for Psychopath While the E is probably Evil

Previously, I mentioned ENTP as the grey type of MBTI who cannot put a side to join the dark side or the bright side. They can be good companions to do noble actions such as charity or helping people in any kind of miserable situations but they are also ready to be your partner in crime, literally. As a fellow of mine said that ENTPs are easily shift or nicely said: We are adaptable. Thus, we stand between black and white which is grey. Later on, we can adjust the shade of grey that we need. Just remember one think that ENTPs rarely stand on the side where good guys who believe in justice stay. We are trolls and we like the idea of chaos sometimes. I have collected some data of fictional characters that portray ENTP. Most of them are anti-hero, annoying but witty protagonist, or even completely villain who also do surprising things. Here they are.

2360567

Bugs Bunny!  He is, indeed, the King of Troll in Looney Tunes and he can be described as an ENTP with the shade of cloudy light grey. He has done lots of vicious and crazy stuffs to avoid and fight Elmer Fudd, the hunter, back. He does lots of pranks to outwit Elmer and puts him in trouble. Even if you watch the show closely, Bugs seems enjoy doing the pranks and such stuffs that may have killed Elmer Fudd. Thank God it’s cartoon. However, he does those things to survive. Who wants to be hunted, anyway?

deadpool-reading

Is Deadpool a hero? No he is not. So, does it mean that he is a villain? Well, he is also not. He simply identifies himself as a bad guy, who hunts and kills the worse guys. Obviously, his pervert mind, dirty mouth, rotten avocado face, and his psychopathic desire to slice and shoot his enemies into pieces are out of heroic criteria. He is not everyone’s idol like Steve Rogers (Captain America), but he is also not interested in dominating the galaxy like Thanos. He naturally enjoy chaotic stuffs but he maximize his psychopathic passion to annihilate pathetic guys who try to mess with him or people he cares about. Talking about the shade, Deadpool is grey, just grey. By the way, I am interested in the book he is reading in the picture above.

garfield_the_cat-svg

Garfield is an evidence of how annoying but adorable an ENTP is. Garfield often steals Jon’s meals especially if it is lasagna. No one can stop him to eat lasagna. However, despite his greedy appetite, his owner loves him and claims that Garfield is irreplaceable, not even by Odie. Talking about Odie, his friendship with Garfield is an example of how ENTP can be friend to almost everyone, even though his natural enemy. Well, similar to Bugs, Garfield earns the shade of cloudy light grey.

hades-from-hercules1

Hades, son of Cronus, brother of Zeus and Poseidon, God of the underworld. Well, I should add: ‘The enemy of Hercules’ since the Hades that belongs to ENTP type is the one from Disney. Hades is one of many examples of how narcissistic an ENTP is. He, indeed, loves and admires himself. In many ways, he believes that he is better than his brother, Zeus and see Hercules as not more than filthy half-god creature. More than that, Hades is also witty and opportunist. He knows how to lure his enemy by summoning Megara to seduce our hero, Hercules, so he can easily capture him and neutralize his god-like power, turning Hercules into mortal. However, as always, villains are destined to be failed. After all, Hades is a shadow grey.

talk-like-a-pirate-day-jack-sparrow

‘Why fight when you can negotiate?’ Remember that line from this badass pirate? ENTP confirmed. Well, it does not mean he is never involved in any battle. He is a pirate anyway. He is a pirate and pirate is normally merciless and ruthless bad guy but look at him. He is one badass sociopath who chose the way of pirate. He kills, he steal, and he hijack ships but his negotiable trait proves that he is not standing on the dark side where most bad guys belong to. Jack Sparrow is a smoky grey.

joker-comic-wallpaper-3

Responsible for dr. Harley Quinzel mental disorder and transformation into Harley Quinn, Murdering Jason Todd with crowbar, becoming a diplomat of Iran,letting his face skinned, breaking his own neck, even stealing kid’s report card for fun, Joker is a lunatic. If I would like to describe him as color, he might be charcoal grey. Why not pitch black for he is a crazy psychopathic nemesis of Batman?  It is philosophical, Charcoal is black, but it will turn into slight grey once it is burnt. Joker, however, have said that he will stop doing chaotic crimes if Batman stops fighting crimes. There we go, Batman is the fire that burn Joker as the charcoal.

saul_season_4

Saul Goodman is literally the devil’s advocate. Who is the devil he works for? Indeed, The Great Heisenberg a.k.a. Walter White! Saul is an attorney who helps many felons from assassin to drugs dealer who need legal aid or to cover up their crimes. He is not the bad guy who kills or sell drugs. He does not even use drugs but helping the number one meth chef in USA launder his money and cover all of his crimes by still having the image of flamboyant celebrity lawyer with hilarious TV commercial makes him earn the shade of silver.

im_large_660

 ‘Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.’ That’s how he described himself when our friend, Captain America questioned who Tony Stark is without the Iron-Suit. Think about how cocky that statement was. However, Stark is the excellent example of how  arrogant ENTP is. His over-generosity is an accurate evidence of his arrogance, his talent in making lots of money and at the same time his inability in managing it. More than that, it also have brought several problems. Stark is generous, too generous that he often has no idea to whom he donates his money to. Sometimes, surprisingly, out of his control, the money goes to the bad guy. He is also hated by many people for his arrogant attitude. However, Tony is still one of the most heroic and badass superheroes. He is the silver guy. Shining on his arrogant heroic role. He saved the world from alien invasion, though!

tyrion

Heavy drinker, unwanted son, betrayed by his sister and his own father, ended up killing his father and set himself free to serve the mother of dragons. Tyrion Lannister, is a real badass and valid proof of this statement: Size does not matter. He even tamed the dragons of Daenerys Targaryen and became her Queen’s Hand to help the Mother of Dragons claiming the Iron Throne to rule seven kingdoms. Tyrion is a true debater and dangerous tactician. He is witty and does not mind to kill people who hurts him and anyone he cares about. Similar to Deadpool, he is not the nemesis of the series but he is also not the guy people easily like because of his heroic actions. Tyrion is pure grey.

In conclusion, all of the characters above are naturally sarcastic, witty, and uneasy to be liked. People mostly like the heroic characters while most ENTPs are not quite. Anyway, do you see your favorite fictional character(s) from my list?

Neither Black nor White

What is your color? I do not ask your favorite color because it is cliche. I am talking about color that describes you, your personalities, your view about the world and what’s inside you. So, please think about it. Once more, not your personal subjective favorite color but a color that defines your personality and characters. I will start on behalf of my kind, ENTP.

Before I mention the color of my types, Let’s take a quick look to some traits that ENTP has based on my observation to myself, some fictional characters, some friends and some aliens out there.

  1. ENTPs hate to be controlled strictly. (Similar to ENFP)
  2. ENTPs do not like organized schedule.
  3. ENTPs have so many things that they are interested in but only a few that they can handle.
  4. ENTPs sometimes cannot finish what they have started.
  5. ENTPs are generally fast learners. (Similar to other thinker types)
  6. ENTPs are lazy as hell.
  7. ENTPs are easy to get along with. (Similar to any extrovert types especially ENFP and ESFJ)
  8. ENTPs are excellent conversationalist. (Similar to ESFJ)
  9. ENTPs are passionate and has thousands ideas about many things. (Similar to ESTP and ENFP)
  10. ENTPs are extremely sarcastic. (Highly similar to INTJ)
  11. ENTPs value friendships more than their relationships.
  12. ENTPs enjoy debate and hate losing an argument. (Similar to INTJ)
  13. ENTPs do not mind doing what common people assume as bad stuffs for the sake of better future. (Similar to INTJ)
  14. Honestly, ENTPs do not mind teasing or doing prank for fun. (Remember Joker?)
  15. ENTPs are generally not sensitive. Tend to be heartless in some cases. (Similar to INTJ).
  16. ENTPs often become emotional over ridiculous things. (Similar to ENFP)
  17. ENTPs secretly like cute animals. (Similar to any types with feeling as their dominant trait)
  18. ENTPs like to help others if they find it interesting no matter it breaks the moral value or not. (Take a look at Deadpool kick the pizza-guy’s ass in the movie to help the girl. More example: Saul Goodman from breaking bad, Tyrion Lannister from Game of Throne)
  19. ENTPs tend to idolize both heroes and villains because they agree to both side. (Look at Deadpool fan-boying Spider-man but at the same time working together with Magneto in some occasions)
  20. ENTPs find it difficult to put a side between good or bad.

Alright that is a long list up there. I could have added some more but I will save it for later. So based on the list, I will draw a quite long conclusion. ENTPs, as it has been discussed many times, are lazy but learn quickly. They have lots of ideas but cannot be consistent in finishing what they have started. They want a better world but they do not mind destroying the present world if it has to be so (some INTJs are laughing). All in all, I can say that ENTPs are grey. They are neither black nor white, neither hero nor villain. We stand on the middle between good and bad. So, when ENFPs or other feeler types feel insecure about their actions of hurting people or being too kind to people, ENTPs can only say: ‘Well, you know, you can hire me for both charity or deadly pranks. Chill.’ More than it, should any INTJ tells us his or her world domination plan we would be happy to listen and join as mercenaries. Cheers.

Triggering ENTP 101

d447036dc11306ae09146294b8862393.jpg

The stereotype said that ENTPs are insensitive and emotionless. Well, we are, but we are not in some cases. Our emotion works in slightly different way that some people find it difficult to relate.For instance, we would be very sentimental on something that other people with different MBTI do not understand where in the hell the emotional part is. We will not find a racist joke offensive though it is intended to insult us but we will be very sarcastic towards unnecessary comments in Facebook. Anyway, here are several things that might trigger the emotion of ENTPs that I have put on a list. Feel free to think that I am emotionally retarded.

Death of Fictional Characters


Maybe you will think it is normal to cry over a death of fictional character but for ENTPs, no matter how many time we have seen the scene or read the part where the character died, the feeling will remain the same as that is the first time we watch or read it. Even worse, it sometimes make us too emotional that will influence us to say or do something that people do not expect to come out from ENTPs. I was re-watching an episode in One Piece when suddenly remembered that episode was the one which one of my favorite character died. That was my second time seeing it. After watching, I called my brother making sure he was alive. Thank God he is alive until now. That was long ago, recently I cried over the death of my original character which appears on the short story I post recently. My friend was like: ‘if you can’t handle killing him, so why did you kill him?’

Losing an Argument


We are natural debater. Thus, we won’t accept our lost in an argument. ENTPs are full of ‘but’ when it comes to debate. Debating and arguing are fun for us but when we lost, weird emotion and reaction will happen. I personally will feel upset and disappointed to myself and put respect to the person who comes with better argument. Often the people who beat me become my close friend or we keep in touch to argue more. Mostly I lost to other ENTP or…. ENFP. Damn you Charles Xavier.

Virus, Malware and Blue-Screen of Death


This is personal thought of mine. I am not sure if other ENTPs out there feel the same about this but I love my computers more than I want to have girlfriend. Yes I am single as hell but it won’t trigger me if you mock my relationship status because ENTPs normally do not care about such thing. You are an ENTP and you worry about being single? Better re-take the test, mate. Probably you are a feeler. LOL! Okay back to the three horrible things that might be serious threats to my babies (computers). Those stuffs will make me so angry and cranky for days until I am able to get rid of them. I did not sleep for three days straight, ate biscuits for breakfast and dinner, was so cranky all day and could not focus during the lesson because I thought about hundreds possibilities to ‘heal’ my PC from a goddamn malware that infected the system. Thank God it was successful. I hugged my PC after that. Have I been so attentive and caring to my exes? Ain’t nobody get time for that. My point here is that sometimes ENTPs level of affection is unpredictable. We sometimes love inanimate objects more than we love people. Other ENTPs might be triggered if his cactus die, someone eat his or her last doughnut, or even when she does not get the food she craves the whole day. Surprisingly, some of us are immune to spoiler. Spoil us a movie that we haven’t watch and we will happily request you to tell us the ending.

Witty is Pretty


I understand that physical beauty is the initial attraction before we know what’s inside. Thus, some people, especially those feelers, may strongly believe on the concept of ‘love at the first sight’. For ENTPs, men in this case, that is bullshit. We are attracted to beautiful hot chicks, obviously. However, it does not mean we would like to date every pretty girl that we meet. For us, or me personally, what’s inside is the most important and physical is number two. I would rather talk about aliens, galaxies and possibilities of parallel multiverse all day long than staring at beautiful face of my girlfriend for three hours straight. Thus, pretty or handsome or whatever it’s named according to ENTPs like us is when someone is able to share his or her wild thoughtful intellectual exploration in daily basis to us.

Well, those are some ‘triggers’ to our emotionless emotion. Who said ENTP has no feeling? We are just feeler in different way. Now you know how to make us angry, sad, or even broken.

You Can Hire Them For Zombie Apocalypse

A friend once asked how in the world could I have my list of favorite MARVEL characters suitable to my MBTI? How could I idolize (mostly) characters with ENTP traits? I have no exact answer for this. Probably because those ENTPs share the same views as mine. However, it does not mean I ONLY like ENTPs when it comes to fictional characters. Though Wade Wilson, Tony Stark and Rocket Raccoon are my heroes, I also adore some others with various MBTI types.Here are the chosen five of non-ENTP fellows from MARVEL Universe alongside with their MBTI and my personal opinion about them.

  • Frank Castle (The Punisher) – INTJ

punisher-in-marvel-comics2

Frank was an ex-marine who got his entire family murdered in front of his face. More than it, he got a head-shot that,unfortunately, did not kill him. Since then, Frank turned into psychopathic badass who demanded revenge. I am not sure about his previous life when he was a loving husband and father, but The Punisher is an INTJ. Low tolerance, lack of emotion, hates inefficiency are several features of INTJ that you can see from this badass man-hunter. An INTJ is also original and pragmatic. You will see how Frank does not let emotional feelings interrupt his decision in doing his job terminating the targets. The only distractions for him are Dare Devil and NYPD. I am with Frank. You may kill the one who kill your loved ones, though. ‘Don’t get in my way, Red!

  • Charles Xavier (Prof. X) – ENFP

charles_xavier_earth-616

I shit you not, Charles is my favorite mutant after Wade. I mean, who does not want to control Cerebro and knows what common people do not know? If he was not shot on the spine and could use both of his leg normally, I could imagine how badass would he be. Anyway, Charles is passionate, optimistic and surprisingly care about others. At the first time he might look like an ordinary bald professor who is busy with his own experiment, but look at how he cares about the young mutants? X-Mansion is a proof of his caring, optimistic and passionate personality, giving hope to the minority to have better future. Alright, talking about Charles makes me sound old. Go on.

  • Peter Parker (Spider-Man) – INFP

tumblr_nryugmbxug1sbbfwho3_1280

Most kids’ wildest dream is getting bitten by radio-active spider and becoming Spidey. I was one of those moron kids. Thus, Pete-Parker was my childhood hero. As a kid, seeing a heroic older-but-not-too-older guy will make me day-dreaming of having a big brother. To every kid out there, imagine if Spider-man take you to school and all of your friends will drop their jaws. THAT WAS! MY DREAM! Dedicated, idealist, loyal, intensively struggle to make world as a better place are some traits of INFP in Spidey. At least before Venom turned him into somehow worse but better at the same time. Hey, maybe black-suit Spider-man is an ENTP.

  • Peter Quill (Star Lord) – ESFP

starlord

Another Peter. I envy Star Lord for he is having fun out of every task and difficult situation he encounters. He is also an excellent team-worker while I prefer to do most of the things solo. ESFP is creative and an out of the box thinker. This is why they always find fun ways to face everything even the worst situation. In some cases, especially the part of Guardian of the Galaxy movie, ESFP is an excellent peacemaker and this makes Star Lord a great leader.

  • Katherine Anne ‘Kitty’ Pryde – INFP

47_kittypryde

My mutant crush, indeed. Shared the same MBTI as Spidey, Kitty is an inter-dimensional mutant who can travel through not only concrete objects like wall but also time. Even though Kitty is not an excellent combatant, She plays important role in X-Men: Days of Future Past, though. I have described how heroic an INFP is. INFPs are usually idealist justice keeper who prefer to put douche-bags and bandits to jail rather than killing them on sight. Their kind-hearted personality suits ENTP well.

Now I am thinking of them teaming up together with Wade, Stark, and Raccoon. Though, I prefer Spidey with his symbiote suit. What’s the team name gonna be? You decide!

What’s in (My) ENTP Head

tumblr_nwf8ttofEW1t1otoho1_1280.jpg

So I found this interesting picture in the internet recently. It was originally posted by someone in reddit but reddit is blocked in my country, so technically I took it from google. Thanks for anyone who post this illustration of what’s inside the brain of ENTP. Thus, I will try to elaborate how accurate is the illustration to my own mind because, I am an ENTP anyway!

Normally, people start from the biggest part, the most dominant. Per contra, I will start from that small red part at the bottom.

Grumpy Thoughts About Everything

Grumpy sounds bad but sadly it is true, at least for me. ENTPs, including me, sometimes see the world as a miserable place. After all, it is called as ‘grumpy thoughts’, so I do not always utter it. Instead, I often just grumble inside my mind, and stay calmly cool outside. There are some grumpy thoughts which commonly hit my mind in several situations.

  1. Durian smells bad. Moreover it is more suitable to be used as a melee weapon. Just look at those spikes!
  2. Some females in my country need driving lessons. They turn on the left turning signals and start taking over from the right side of the road.
  3. What’s the point of sticking family stickers with everyone’s name on the rear part of car? You love your family? No.. you try to attract kidnappers.
  4. Kids fashion show is a total exploitation. They ain’t doll.
  5. Smokers who smoke in public places should swallow the whole smoke ..And the cigar butt as well.

 The list won’t over if I continue. Anyhow, we are NOT carried by grumpy  thoughts all the time. It only hits our mind when we have a bad mood or something goes really bad.

Just Smile and Say Yes so They Do not Realize You are not Listening 

That green part explains how ENTPs think about other people’s feeling. It is difficult for me to focus and it is so easy to distract me. Thus, when I smile and say yes while I have no idea about what people are talking about, I never mean it. I am just simply get distracted by something else. Another possibility is an introvert thinker problem: I am busy with my own thoughts. However, no worries! I will listen more carefully once it comes to something serious.

Narcissistic Thoughts

I disagree with this one. This part, for me, does not work as it should be. My thought about myself is more likely sarcastic and grumpy (I know that red small at the bottom should be bigger) than narcissistic. When someone throw me a cheesy compliment saying how cool I am that day or I look fresher or blah blah blah, my response are usually snappy yet funny.

  1. I know right? I am cool! Sometimes I think Sub-Zero is my ancestor. Ha-ha.
  2. Yeah, finally I am no longer zombie. Fresh and lively!

At least, they usually laugh.

Self-Critical Thought

Critical thinking is ENTPs special trait. I couldn’t agree more with this. Moreover, thinking critically about myself is something that I do almost all the time. Thinking about my weaknesses, things that I have done, things that I haven’t done, my purposes, my dreams, things that I have to improve, my existence and the one that I hate, my death. I think everywhere and anytime randomly. Toilet, during a movie, in the middle of teaching, on my way to somewhere, under a tree and when eating are several self-critical thinking sessions that I have almost everyday. 

What  If…

This one is my favorite. Besides thinking about self-improvement and contemplating existence, impossible thoughts and phantasies are what I imagine all the time.There will be endless list so I will choose some most intriguing thoughts of mine.

  1. According to the holy books and history books, people in the past live longer than now. What if they actually didn’t live any longer than us? Their hundreds year old age was caused by shorter period of time, which means our Earth rotated and revolved around the Sun faster in the past. What if we get slower?
  2. Still related to thought number one, If it gets slower by the time, will our Earth stop rotating and revolving later? What if it is not only happening to Earth but the whole galaxy? 
  3. In the past, touch screen was part of science fiction. What if what we categorize as science fiction now is going to be scientific in the distant future?
  4. Talking about sci-fi, what if someone has built time machine in the future but he/she failed on his/her first attempt when traveling to the past and trapped there till the end of his/her life?
  5. Our age is relative based on what calendar do we use. I might be younger, or older than I should be.

Puns and Jokes

  • Can eel and eagle hang out? No because It’s eel-eagle!
  • I think vampire won’t ever hunt Taylor Swift, because she has bad blood. 

I can relate this. Puns and jokes are something that randomly and sometimes unconsciously come out of nowhere. However, it does not always work. Sometimes I am not sure if my joke is cheesy or people do not really get it or the situation is not right. In spite of the possibility of failing, ENTPs are natural random pun machine. Wait, is that why I adore Deadpool so much?

Credible Bullshits and Real Arguments

Why do I combined them? When an ENTP is involved in a debate, which he obviously enjoy,  he will mix his real arguments with bunch of reliable hogwash. ENTPs are resourceful and witty. Their Introverted thinking allows them to develop and improve information  that they have into multiple arguments and … bullshits. Reliable one, though. Therefore, debating and being involved in an argument are several things that an ENTP enjoys the most. Sometimes, those rascals trigger the argument or the worse one: they debate themselves with credible bullshits and real arguments.

Imaginary and Fictional Problems VS Real Problems

I couldn’t agree more. I sometimes worry more fictional problems like robot apocalypse and alien abductions rather than my real problems in my REAL life.Angry boss? Annoying colleague? Grumpy crush? Broken stuffs? Sure those will ruin my day but I will quickly move on and find solutions for each. On the other hand, thinking about serial killers, mutated animals, super genius hackers who will creep into my systems and other phantasies will freak me out more. I think this imaginary fictional problems part is highly related with the ‘What If…’ part. They form strong relationship and occupy my brain with random intriguing thoughts about something that actually do not exist, distracting me to slowly forget my real problems. My brain betrays me!

Anyway, it also brings some benefits to me. My thoughts is full of fictional scenarios complete with the characters. I am going to write a story soon enough. Maybe in another blog. 

Alcohol and Coffee

Well I do not drink alcohol but coffee.. Nothing is better than black coffee with no sugar in the morning, especially the local one. Starbucks favorite? Pitch black Americano, sometimes the iced one.

Interesting Ideas and Projects (Later)

As I have told you previously, ENTPs are resourceful. We often pop up with incredible ideas and plans about projects but we often too lazy to start and end up procrastinating. In my case, it is more disturbing. I have the idea but I am lazy to start then several hours later, I will worry about having not enough time to finish everything while I am still too lazy to start. Just like the one that I have mentioned above, the story. I said that I will start soon enough but here, I will spell it to you: I DON’T KNOW WHEN TO START.

Well, enough confessing for now. Please share if you experience the same. Catch you later!

ENTP is Extrovert yet Introvert

Recently I found the answers of what I have been thinking for weeks. About the extroversion, being mistaken as introvert and how MBTI actually works, especially ENTP. Extrovert, in this case, is not as simple as something classical that most people believe as an outgoing, super confident and friendly person. Basically, extroverts are people who gets more energized by hanging around other people. Well, if they get more energized by being around others, does it mean that they are confident and sociable enough to initiate conversation? The answer are YES and also NO. Getting energy from outer source does not make extroverts have no feeling of nervous. Sometimes they feel uneasy to start socializing, but once they are involved, they will be very friendly and can talk for hours.

Moreover, if we associate the term  extroversion with the functions of MBTI, it is far away from what many people believes as classical definition of extroversion as sociable and confident trait that people have. More than that, MBTI functions are more complicated. Each type of MBTI is never pure extrovert nor introvert. It is always the combination of both.

There are 8 function attitudes in MBTI:

  1. Extroverted Sensing (Se)
  2. Introverted Sensing (Si)
  3. Extroverted Intuition (Ne)
  4. Introverted Intuition (Ni)
  5. Extroverted Thinking (Te)
  6. Introverted Thinking (Ti)
  7. Extroverted Feeling (Fe)
  8. Introverted Feeling (Fi)

Each MBTI combines both introvert and extrovert functions from the most dominant, secondary, inferior to the least functioned. Thus, even though I am an ENTP, it doesn’t mean that my functions will be all-extrovert. After all, extroversion is dominant in an ENTP like me. These are, the functions of ENTPs in the order of the most dominant to the least functioned: Ne, Ti, Fe, Si.

We use extroverted intuition (Ne) and this is the most dominant function. It makes ENTPs see lots of possibilities in the external world since we gain more ideas by observing what the surrounding has. In other word, we are adept at visualizing and understanding the external environment and always eager to take it a step further. They call us visionaries for some reasons, though.

The next is introverted thinking (Ti) as the secondary function. We trust our internal framework and our ideas are not easy to be explained to others. It explains why ENTP is the most introverted extrovert among all extrovert in MBTIs. We think as an introvert (which means we prefer to think when we are alone) and it is not easy to understand our way of thinking. More surprisingly,  sometimes we don’t understand our own thoughts. However, we are serious thinker who always look for internal logic of ideas. In short, ENTPs are excellent brainstormers who find it hard to make people understand their tons of ideas.

Extroverted feeling (Fe) is not the dominant function in ENTP. However, this function still plays role in how ENTPs enjoy helping others. The Fe aspect that ENTPs lack of is sensitivity. Yeah, we are insensitive.

The least is introverted sensing (Si). This function allows ENTPs to compare the present facts to past experiences. We store the memories and experiences from the past for the future use. Learn the past to rule the future.

Well, seems like MBTI and its functions are more than just about personality. Moreover, extroversion and introversion have nothing to do with sociable or anti-social traits in this case. They are more likely about the functions. People with Introversion might be sociable but they will feel more energized when they are alone. Vice versa for the people with extroversion, they might be mistaken as cold blooded introvert at the beginning but in the end, they will be able to socialize well and energized while around the others. All in all, I will share more about ENTP and I am glad to meet other ENTPs.

Any ENTP out there???

Any ENTP out there???

So it was two years ago when a friend of mine mentioned 16personalities.com as a website where we could ‘understand ourselves’ better. I was wondering the site as a cheesy personality quiz with doubtful result, but for the sake of friendship, I said that I would try it. I didn’t even try to open the site in the end.

On January, another friend reintroduced me to the same stuff after he saw me sharing bunch of posts about The Joker from Batman series in a social messenger.I asked him what was that 16 personalities actually about and I got the same answer: “You will understand yourself better once you try it.” He is a psychologist. Therefore, compared to my college-mate, he was more convincing. That day, I was thinking about giving a shot on it.

Actually I forgot it again and finally tried it on the next month, February. The results surprised me me at the beginning. So according to the result, which is actually based on what I have answered, I am a Debater. I was surprised since I , honestly, enjoy to argue and debate for sure. Further, I saw a set of capitalized letters, ENTP. Extroversion, iNtuition, Thinking , Prospecting, that’s what ENTP stands for. Seeing the E which stood for Extroversion, my first reaction was “See? I am extrovert! I am not an antisocial!”

Feeling gratefully sociable, I started reading the result further. I saw my extroversion was 55% , with 71% intuition, 60% thinking, 70% for prospecting and 56% turbulent. Wait, I did not realize it was ENTP-T until I reread the percentage the second time. Whatever, the result said I AM extrovert, though.

After a few minutes reading the first page, I was intrigued by the results. When I saw The Joker as one of ENTPs, it explained why I adore him so much.

Moving on, I doubted the strengths and weaknesses part. Especially in the point that said ENTPs are charismatic. However, the weaknesses part described me really accurate. Argumentative, insensitive, intolerant, etc. This result recorded my sins perfectly. Well played 16 personalities.

On the relationship part of the result, I found the reasons of my unhappy relationship with my ex. She wanted normal, safe, comfortable relationship while I demanded more. I don’t enjoy cheesy conversations and get excited with intriguing ideas and chances to start an argument. According to her, I was difficult to understand and sometimes evil. According to me, she was a bit boring. After all, freedom is priceless. I am single and I have never been happier.

Page after page and it explained lots of things about me. Since then, I was getting more curious about the concept of those personalities  which has been known widely as Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).

After I shared the result to friends who Continue reading “Any ENTP out there???”
