    What does Success mean to an ENTP?

    ENTP personalities are motivated by possibilities. They love the outside chances; the new or unusual combinations lurking within the ordinary everyday world of things and ideas. For them, something is always on the up, something is always tantalizing their desire to re-orchestrate life into new patterns and shapes; new ways of fulfilling what can be as strong as a never ending desire to beat the odds and win at every game in town, or as mild as a quirky personal need for constant variety and change. With their thinking tied to the myriad possibilities they see in the world, they act swiftly and decisively upon those angles, choices and combinations scarcely noticed by other types, but through which they can build whole new frameworks or completely redefine an existing external situation in such a way that it appears new, revitalized and once again full of promise. Sameness, stasis, conservatism - even daily routine - can be loathsome to ...

    The Visionary

    As an ENTP, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is internal, where you deal with things rationally and logically.

    With Extraverted Intuition dominating their personality, the ENTP's primary interest in life is understanding the world that they live in. They are constantly absorbing ideas and images about the situations they are presented in their lives. Using their intuition to process this information, they are usually extremely quick and accurate in their ability to size up a situation. With the exception of their ENFP cousin, the ENTP has a deeper understanding of their environment than any of the other types.

    This ability to intuitively understand people and situations puts the ENTP at a distinct advantage in their lives. They generally understand things quickly and with great depth. Accordingly, they ...

    Explorer Inventor: ENTP

    The ENTP is all about enthusiasm. The ENTP also has the problem of not always following through on the ideas they will so enthusiastically promote. They believe that almost anything can be made better. This is not always easy for friends to deal with.

    In love relationships the ENTP one can expect to be challenged, usually by anything that may come along. This is usually good and bad, interesting but also irritating. The ENTP will usually be at the center and view themselves that way.

    The ENTP enjoys the family since it is another opportunity to exchange ideas. Though not always a consistent behaving member of the family, they like to show and engage in discussion.

    Work that allows the ENTP to be challenged and stimulated will be highly attractive. Work that binds an ENTP to standard operating procedures will be ultimately frustrating and stress inducing. ...

    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. ...

This type is delighted over many things and so is easy to please, often showing the effervescence of their NF counterpart, the ENFP. The ENTP is the most reluctant of all the types to do things in a particular manner just because that is the way things always have been done. They characteristically have ...
