Has anyone else ever noticed the vast amount of fake ENTPs in the world? I'm not saying this to belittle anyone; what I mean is that many, many people claim to be or sometimes even test as an ENTP, but when you talk to them, you are certain there is no way it could be true. I have some friends who have tested as such, to which my (internal) reaction was, essentially, "Look, I know an ENTP when I see an ENTP - I am one, and you certainly are not!"
I understand that conceptions can be mistaken, of course, and perhaps these "fake" ENTPs could be telling the truth, but there's certainly something to be said for an outside, objective perspective on one's personality versus going off of one's own perception alone.
I know there are people on the forums, too, that are clearly not the personality type they claim to be. I'm sure this happens with all of the types, but (perhaps because I'm especially sensitive to my own type) I've noticed this phenomenon is especially prevalent for ENTPs. Why might this be? Is it that (this might be the ego talking) people want to be ENTPs, for whatever reason? To be honest, I wouldn't quite understand that. What reason could there possibly be?
I just find it all very odd...
