I got into this whole MBTI thing a couple days ago, when I took a test to check my type. The result was ENTP. I was neither suprised nor unsuprised. In any case, I took like 5 different tests and they all came out as ENTPs.
Here are some quotes from my past posts that are related:
-"ENTPs Stereotypes" thread:
Here is my list of ENTP stereotypes..
3.) No feelings
5.) Not romantic
6.) Shocker (Gets their kicks from seeing peoples reaction)
8.) Rarely serious
1-FALSE!!! I feel really guilty after running over my shitty neighbor's cat. JK I love animals and see myself as very ethical, whenever I do a bad thing I eat myself up for a long fucking time until I fix it, confess or apologize. However, I end up confessing more on minor problems with minor guilt problems that major ones. I was like that when I was little kid, but in recent years (I'm in 10th grade, so like from 7th grade) I started to get over-ethical. I think its because I embraced and blossomed my F.
2. You got me, you fucking bastard! (Although NO ONE understands my jokes, and I need to give like 10 explainations for them to understand, making a bad reaction, like "what?????" or "speak hebrew (in my case). They're just not smart enaugh.
3. Not true. I get very emotional, and I usually have a hard time hiding it. Mostly social problems (when I have fights (not physical, forgot the english word), and when I fight (this time physically), even though it only happened 3 times (with 2 different guys), and kicked their asses, I just go to corner and isolate myself from everyone but my 1 close friends (I talk with my friends one at a time).-This was not effected by embracing the F, it was alwyas like that.
5-False-although i love flings (I'm 16, not sex, just BJs and such) I always dream about having a serious girlfriend, although I never find one that I deem worthy of -me-. (If you have issues with that, read #4)
6-To a wired extent. I often do things for no reasons other than to feed my curiosity (something VEEEEERY hungry) as to how'll htey'll react.
8-I'm serious when I talk about serious stuff (look above), but I'm otherwise hyper and VERY and nearly ALWAYS happy and eccentric, except some days when I feed sad, and then I'm really sad, about the same things I'm eccentric about.
9-I have some good jokes coming up all the time, but they're waaaaaay overly sophisticated
10-SOOOOOO true, but I don't think I'm living up to my potential, got 2 Fs and a D in math, because I cut class, don't listen, and rarely ever study, but when I really need something done, I press the gas the last minute and study as hard as fuck and get an A or if I'm unlucky or press it a day before the test, a B+ or rarely a B-.
Thread about ENTPs and short term memory:
I forget stuff I've done seconds ago. For instance, I remembered my favorite show is on 9:30, and I turn on the television, but forget what I was doing (at this point in the post I forgot what I was typing), only for brief 10 sec moments, because my mind is elsewhere.
In addition, when I leave the front door for school and my mom asks me to take down the trash (accidently typed "down" twice now) I forget about it, and, funny (my mom would say sad, lol) enaugh, the trash is right AT the door.
First of all, this is not about popularity, because I'm pretty popular. Does it happen to you too? When someone says "I think you're fucked up" you take it as they're syaing: "I (never, NEVER do the following) think you're a genius, because true genius is fucked up"
And when no one laughs at my jokes (they're usually really funny, depends where I tell them, near girls I'm really funny, but in my class I never tell a single funny jokes, perhaps because at my school your clique is unrelated to your class, and only 1 of my good friends is in my class, anyway:) I just think that they're too inferior and stupid to understand my jokes.
I personally think it happens because of our narcissism, we interpet what others say as compliments because we think we're the best and perfect.
Also a thread of mine:
Hey guys, first of all, I want to say this is not about popularity, because I'm pretty popular and have no trouble here, in addition, I'm 16 years old high school student.
So, the problem is, I have a hard time telling whether someone is laughing at me or with me, and its eating me up alot, and my close friends always say that, because everone thinks my humor is dumb. Fuck them my humor is awesome to me when I think about it, but no one else thinks it's funny.
So, did this happen to you too in childhood, right now, or not at all? If it did, how did you handle it?
Enaugh with quotes,
Other than that, I don't have that compelling drive to argue, find myself ethical (when someone is not nice to me, I just think so much about how much I hate them, and thinking about what slow painful death will fit them the most, but when he acts even a drop nicely, I forget all about that and my rage pops into thin air in a second, until he does it again, and so it cycles, the only times I remember he didn't act nicely lead into fist fights. In addition, I never, at least meaning, start a bad relationship with someone.)
Also, I don't have this knack for breaking the rules.
On the other hand, all the other stereotypes ENTPs have I identified in myself.
I also identify a little bit with the INFJ type (wierd, huh?), which is supposed to be pretty opposite (not entirely), but waaaay not enaugh to be called an INFJ, and I don't see myself in their shoes. I still think that being an ENTP really defines me, and I said more than once "OMFG thats me!!!! I searched that quality for so long and its here!!! So rare!!!", and "I can't believe they're like me in that TOO!"
