One Idea After Another (Source)
ENTP’s are quick to see complex interrelationships between people, things, and ideas and are able to analyze these interrelationships in profound detail. The result is an in-depth understanding of the way things and relationships work, and how they can be improved.
To the ENTP, competence and intelligence are particularly prized, both in themselves and in other people.
ENTP’s are frequently described as clever, cerebrally and verbally quick, enthusiastic, outgoing, innovative, flexible, loyal and resourceful.
ENTP’s are motivated by a desire to understand and improve the world they live in. They are usually accurate in sizing up a situation.
They may have a perverse sense of humor and sometimes play devil’s advocate, which can create misunderstandings with friends, coworkers, and family.
ENTP’s are ingenious and adept at directing relationships between means and ends.
ENTP’s devise fresh, unexpected solutions to difficult problems. However, they are less interested in generating and following through with detailed plans than in generating ideas and possibilities.
In a team environment, ENTP’s are most effective in a role where they can draw on their abilities to offer deep understanding, a high degree of flexibility, and innovative solutions to problems.
The ENTP regards a comment like “it can’t be done” as a personal challenge, and, if properly motivated, will spare no effort to discover a solution.
