ENTPs make up 3% of the US population.
ENTPs are inspired innovators, motivated to find new solutions to intellectually challenging problems. They are curious and clever, and seek to understand the people, systems, and principles that surround them. Open-minded and easygoing, ENTPs want to understand other people—their motivations, behavior, and ideas—without applying judgment. ENTPs enjoy engaging others in debate, and can be perceived as argumentative due to their love of critical analysis. They like to maintain the upper hand, and often do, thanks to their ability to quickly respond to another’s ideas and behavior. ENTPs are masters of re-inventing the wheel and often refuse to do a task the same way twice. They question norms and often ignore them altogether; they would much rather try a new method (or two) than go along with the standard. ENTPs respond well to challenge and will be most inspired by a problem that others perceive as impossible to solve.
