Do other ENTPs ever feel like the only thing that keeps you from going to a certain extreme is being around people who are even more extreme in that particular regard?
Sometimes I think the only reason I'm as stable as I am (meh...) is because I've been around enough people whose behavior made me say to myself "I hope I'm never like that."
- Not becoming an embarrassing drunk because you don't want to be like your alcoholic friend that everyone in the group feels sorry for.
- Not becoming a complete recluse because you have a roommate who is a recluse, so you'll never let yourself get that bad.
- Not talking about your SO too much because you once had a friend who did that, and it was really annoying.
