    ENTPs and other people's secrets

    People just feel the need to tell me their life stories and confide in me. Also, I often accidentally take on mothering roles because people often mistake my kindness and sporadic dependency for (as rude as this sounds) caring.

    Do people tell you their secrets? Are you a good listener?

    Terrible listener and lots of people tell me their secrets. I am the guy that gets approached all the time from people that are lost. People say I have a caring face/kind eyes or some crap like that. Friends always tell me secrets but I think that's more because I have never spilled the beans and everyone else in my group has at least once. I know exactly how you feel. It's quite annoying.

    BTW, it doesn't sound rude. People used to mistake my kindness for caring. Then I stopped being kind ;)

    Everyone tells me their secrets because they know I simply dont care enough to pass them on.

    I would think ENTP's would naturally be good at keeping secrets, unless you really piss us off. We are naturally cunning, clever, and prone to schemes. Being clever schemers makes us conniving, which makes us prone to secrecy. Being naturally secretive and logical means we're not prone to emotional outbursts that may reveal things that we don't want revealed. Basically the only reasons for us to reveal a secret would be either 1) we're getting something out of it that outweighs the trust confided in us (we probably see you as expendable, unnecessary, or useless and we can be meticulously careful about what we deem useless), or 2) you've done something that we actually deem worthy of our time and efforts to completely destroy you and being that we're prone to min-maxing behavior means putting the time and effort into vengeance means you really did something f-ed up. As long as you don't try to play politics with an ENTP though, you can totally trust us.

    Ugh, why are the the same person? Lost people always assume I know where stuff is. YES, I know where the law library is. It's on the opposite side of campus. NO, I will not walk you there.

    I think I've just god the entire approachability thing going on, and I always look like I know things. I normally do know things, but that doesn't means I want to tell you.

    I absolutely hate when people try and tell me things for the sake of politics. Bad moves. There's an ENFJ floating around that thinks she can out logic us all. All I do is play games with her, and I don't think she's figured it out yet. Here's hoping she never does.

    If I'm interested in someone, I listen intently, otherwise my mind is preoccupied with other things. It's the Ne working on overdrive, trying to figure them out or learn something. People (strangers, friends) generally tell me secrets, and keeping them is something I reliably do, even within a mutual group of friends or even with someone who ticked me off. I guess it's the Ne's way of thanking them for the stimulation.

    People don't really tell me many secrets... probably because I never share any of my own. When people do confide in me, they know that it is safe, because they know that in general I am intensely private and rarely out of control of my emotions. People come to me for perspective and solutions... I am NOT the friend that my friends turn to for either an 'ear' or a 'shoulder'; I am the problem solver.

    Sitting on an airplane, waiting for the bus or standing in the line of the cinema. Since young age I am the person people seem to think wants to talk with them.
