I posted this in the ENTP forum as well because I can't figure out which this guy is. A bunch of them suggested he sounds like an INTP. I'm not sure because I've only ever known 1 INTP.
So I've been out with this guy a few times, and I think he's an ENTP. I don't know him well enough to interpret his behaviors yet, but I've made some inferences so far. (Sometimes I just get "feelings" about people, but I'm not sure if they're true or not) Anway, do you think this sounds like you in a relationship?
1. From the moment he decided to ask me out, I got the impression he is focusing on our relationship and not dating multiple people at once. (Not to say we're in an exclusive relationship per se, but I get the sense that he will want to see where this goes and then move on or not)
2. Between the time we see each other, he is not one to communicate every day or make "small talk."
3. Related to number 2, he puts "placeholders" in our relationship. For example, he'll give me a book to borrow. Or, after helping me assemble some furniture, ask if I want him to leave his tool kit at my place "just in case." (Personally, I like this because it gives me the impression that we can each go off and focus on our work and projects but know that the other is "out there" and that we'll see each other again soon.)
4. He does not "confirm" dates until the day before or even day of. He books dates in advance, but he doesn't fill in the details (time/place) until the plans are about to happen.
5. The highest compliment he has paid me so far is when he said, "I have not found you boring for one second."
6. He may be slightly more nurturing and commitment minded than the average ENTP because he has a large dog with whom he is quite in love.
7. He has the potential to be quite promiscuous, but with a potentially serious relationship, he will take the physical/sexual side of things VERY slowly and cautiously.
8. He is afraid of being embarassed. The thought of looking helpless or incompetent is hugely anxiety producing for him. The hardest moment of our dating so far was the time he couldn't find the restaurant even though he was standing right in front of it, and I saw him pacing around confusedly on the sidewalk. I went outside, and he said, "Did you see me out there?!" And I said, "Yes, don't worry. this place is hard to find." But I got the feeling he was really freaked out. (Although he later relaxed)
What do you think? Sound familiar? Are these fair inferences?
