ENTPs’ primary interest in life is seeking a higher understanding of the world that they live in. They are idea people and see possibilities everywhere. They get excited and enthusiastic about their ideas, and are extremely inventive. ENTPs are less interested in developing plans of actions or making decisions than they are in generating possibilities and ideas. Although the ENTP is more interested in absorbing information than in making decisions, they are quite rational and logical in reaching conclusions. When presented with a problem, they’re good at improvising and quickly come up with a creative solution. ENTPs are fluent conversationalists, mentally quick, and enjoy verbal sparring with others. They love to debate issues, and may even switch sides sometimes just for the love of the debate. Their ability to intuitively understand people and situations puts the ENTP at a distinct advantage in their lives. They are quite flexible and adapt well to a wide range of tasks.
Strength : Innovating
ENTPs are constantly attracted to what is not, what is not yet, or what could be. They are able to see the potential of every situation, of every person, and how things could evolve.
It is not uncommon to see these users trying to answer questions that do not make any practical sense, and which often have no use at all. In fact, they are only interested in broadening the discussion towards alternative realities, in order to feed their insatiable intellectual curiosity.
At the heart of society’s most consequent innovations, ENTPs act as a source of fresh air for everyone, emancipating themselves from the overrated to highlight the full potential of life in order to find more ways to live life to the fullest.
Immature use of this strength can, through unrealistic attempts and impatience with the thought of sticking to the same ideas, lead to degrading and dangerous instability, lack of concentration on tasks lacking novelty, and abandonment of many projects to start new ones.
Developement Point : Preserving
ENTPs find themselves unable to follow such a structure as it would have imposed on them since it would mean imposing heavy restrictions on their innovative mind always in search of what is not.
ENTPs therefore find themselves in great difficulty when it comes to showing the slightest degree of organization. And this is not by choice, but by inability. Under normal conditions, their minds are blocked on the exploration of new possibilities and the exploitation of their vivid imagination—processes that require the erasing of all barriers of thought, and thus imply the non-respect of all that will force them to do the opposite.
This creates deep instability in their lives, as their extreme anti-conformist spirit prevents them from conforming, even to themselves. Indeed, they are never really present to themselves: if their body is here, their spirit is elsewhere, and vice versa. Thus, performing repetitive tasks, concentrating on some activity, following the rules, arriving on time, writing without mistakes, or even remembering where they left their keys become daily challenges.
Whether it’s for work or for love, making choices is very difficult. Being by far the best at predicting all possible scenarios and aware of all the parameters on which events depend, making a choice is also something they prefer to put off until they no longer have the time to make a decision.
Living far from reality and not being fully aware of their physical presence in the world, they prefer to never engage in experiences that could turn out to be bad. Indeed, these individuals will be most uncomfortable during bad experiences because they will consciously bring them back to the physical sensation they have of themselves—in their bodies—where they are not used to living. This explains, among other things, the great frequency with which they can fall ill or get injured, unaware of the physical realities undergone by their bodies.
Despite their deep desire to have a stable life, they will very regularly lack discipline in all aspects of their lives unless they begin to develop their weakness. Indeed, individuals who will develop their preservation ability will become responsible individuals. For example, they will show great loyalty to their loved ones, will be solely responsible for their own comfort (and thus keep their home clean), will be efficient at work thanks to their great capacity for concentration, will become athletic thanks to their extraordinary stamina, will not forget anything, and will be people on whom we can definitely rely.
ENTPs get very playful around their crush. Taunt them to break the ice. Love to get lost in very deep and abstract conversations, while arguing a lot to figure their crush out at the same time. Try to understand their emotions (something rare). Defend them with witty punchlines, crushing your enemies’ ego.
ENTPs need someone very confident and ambitious, whether they show it or not. Someone who accepts their need to explore so many ideas at once and their lack of respect for standards of any kind. But above all, someone who is ready to challenge their way of thinking with precise and forceful arguments, turning discussions into truly interesting debates.
Once in a relationship, ENTPs always try to change the way their partner look at things, even if it suits them at first. Determined to help them grow as an individual but also bring fun and spontaneity in their life. Gentle and caring if their partner is tired, and fun and provoking if they’re in a good mood (which means their partner will always have the perfect person to debate with). They’ll either hesitate to commit fully to the relationship or display serious loyalty.

Outwardly cold, but inwardly a jumble of feelings. Act like they don’t care, but do. Analyse your every move. Always straight forward when they feel something is wrong in the relationship, and love your honesty as well. Always know what they want, and what you should do in every situation. Have long term projects for both of you, and will make them happen.
