    Default Am I ENTJ?

    Hey All,

    um wtf! Right so I'm told I'm ENTJ......


    but before that I was told I was INTP.......

    .....nfi what type I am, but I'd say I'm like right in the middle of ENTJ & INTP (so maybe I'm a subtypes)

    So if it helps people: a little about me ->

    Charlie, 21, uni bum, IT and Creative Industries, I do better in IT though. Hate rap and hip hop (they can burn in the fiery depths of hell!) I try to get organised but I just can't. My desk and room are always messy until I get the urge to clean (which doesn't usually last long, and I regret it later cos I have to put everything back in it's place). Compared to my ENTP housemate I'm just as messy, but things on my desk are kinda in piles. On the flip side, my cd and book collections are generally in order

    I'm a little off the wall and don't think things completely through when I act. Along with that I procrastinate too much and get bored really easily, but sometimes I know I just have to put my head down and study or work. Once something is started though I generally have little problem completing it.

    As I was writing I noticed that contradiction about "having little problem completing things", and "I regret it later cos I have to put everything back in it's place". Also I read this out to my ENTP house mate to make sure it all sounded fine......

    ....meh! We get on ok, just little annoyances which we both have with each other, which in the end don't mean anything compared to our friendship (i guess it's just a thing about living together )

    I have this angry/arrogant side of me, which comes out when I get time to vent on my venting forums, or to other friends, but never to the people who are the contributers to my anger. People don't generally piss me off, it's just when they do stuff which affects other people and especially me! (fuckers!)

    Most of the time everything to me is a Joke, I keep TRYING to be funny, most of the time not being very successful

    For the VI people out there:
    This is picture of me flaming someone on my forums, which is generally done in jest



    and here's me being drunk and alternative with my stick


    (Pure Pwnage quote btw)

    Cheers!

    I Appreciate your inputs

    More likely you are confused.

    How many type descriptions have you read? How many tests have you taken? What results did you get on those tests? What parts of some specific type descriptions did you have problems with? How do you know that your friend is an ENTp? What is your general attitude towards life?

    Not at all. I'm leaning Alpha, maybe Beta. Most likely ENTp.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    So, at this point you don't know very much about your type. You don't know that your flatmate is an ENTp, you don't know that you are not an ENTp, and you don't know that you are either an ENTj or an INTp.

    Ok it's fairly obvious that I don't exactly know my type Phaedrus, otherwise I wouldn't be posting "Am I ENTj?". Yes I do know about ENTp, ENTj types AND INTp types. My flat mate and I agree that it is most probably one of the two later types. But which we can't decide.

    Like porntips (My flatmate) said twice (redundantly), he's ENTp.

    If you post is trying to imply that I know nothing about socionics then you are wrong! But saying that I only know about the basics like types, functions and inter-type relations. I am new to this, so go easy!

    You not only remind me of Waddlesworth, but you also look like him.

    BTW, an Introvert wouldn't say, "I'm a little off the wall and don't think things completely through when I act", so you are not INTP at least.

    That is definitely not my intention, Charlie. I'm not one of those who want to defend Socionics at all cost and criticize everyone who are sceptical or don't know the "high" stuff. In fact, I have been questioning a lot of things about the theory since I joined this and other forums. My point is that it is very easy to be wrong about someone's type, including your own. So, that your flatmate is convinced that he is an ENTp is no proof that he really is an ENTp. It depends on what grounds he has for that claim. And even if he really is an ENTp, that does not necessarily mean that you can't be an ENTp too. From you have said so far it seems to me that you base your hypothesis that you are either an ENTj or an INTp on too little information. You shouldn't be so sure that you are right about that assumption at this point.

    Rocky is right, you do have something very similar to Waddlesworth, but I didn't realize it until Rocky said so.

    I read your first post trying to imagine that it had been written by me. I was actually able to do so. I also procrastinate, but when I really start to do something, I will finish it. Then I will probably finish all the unfinished things in a couple of days. I'm rather messy, but I get frustrated if things are in the wrong place (there is a system for the mess.) And there is still something very organized about me. (I sometimes look through all my CD-s and my documents...
    Well, in general, I could relate to your text fairly well. It's just that I think I would have emphasized other things about myself. I could write a post like that if I was still unsure what I think of my self-perception. (because everything can be seen in 2+ different ways.) I could say that I'm not messy, but that I'm very meticulous, because of the way I do some things in everyday life.
    If I can relate to your text, you might be ENTj. I think slightly more ENTj than INTp.

    OK I cave. ENTp is likely.

    I re-read SG's identical relations description and I guess it doesn't not fit.
    Maybe i shouldn't be so elitist.

    That is soo like me. In fact I get really angry when people move my mess because I know where everything is. My room has ALWAYS been messy, messy to the point of not being able to see the floor, but I still knew where everything was. (not so much in our new place because all i use my room for is sleeping and dumpin cloths, but my desk is tradjic!)

    Porntips could probably vouch for this, he asked me for dental floss and I knew it was on my desk, and he was surprised at the fast fluid response I had in giving it to him ^_^

    Kristiina, I can relate to what you have put in your post as well.

    Phaedrus, I too question many of the aspects I've seen so far, also I can understand where you're comming from.

    How bout we type porntips and then find out our relation to each other -> BAM! A type for me (if it fits )

    I do agree that he is alot like ChibiKeba, and thus from that I would suggest ESTp.

    Hmmm I wouldn't say that I'm ESTp,

    I wouldn't regard myself as "dispassionate" as the ESTp description says. In addition to that I do care what peolpe think about me (even though I say I don't).

    I also don't have any issue telling peolpe my feelings about something, but a little harder about someone, unless I don't like them, in which case I'm very quick to berate.

    Ok from quickly reading the type information again, I can relate ENTp behaviour, but saying that, i could relate to the ENTj behaviour to the same degree.

    I have, however, noticed that my housemate and I tend to find similar things funny, especially they way we act. I'm not saying we do the same things, but things like not being motivated to change or start something till someone puts a rocket up our arses, is pretty much the extent to goes to.

    Also there was something about looking distant when talking to people, as if I'm not paying attention. I can relate to that, and sometimes I do that on purpose, but other times I'll start listening, get bored of what they are saying, start looking distant and actually NOT listen.

    I can deal with ENTp, but porntips said to me (our desks are RIGHT next to each other in the lounge room) that he can't completly see how I'm ENTp, and for that matter neither can I. But meh, too lazy

    You don't have an ENTj feel about you AT ALL. Come check out the chat. Sometimes that style of online communication makes it easier to tell a person's type.

    You're neither a Gamma nor a Delta.

    Can't get any more specific than that, though.

    By the way, you got me listening to Wind.

    If we are only considering your style of writing on this forum, Charlie, it is more E than I, and it is more ENTp than either INTp or ENTj.

    Okay, thanks to Gilligan's entp type descriptions thread, i've become convinced that he's ESTp, logical subtype.

    I could see that, if he's very intelligent. Highly intelligent ENTps and ESTps are nearly indistuinguishable (LOL SPELLING).

    Default Hooray for reviving an old thread after 2 years!!!

    So, I've been taking some more tests recently and a few of them are coming up with the fact that I may be ESFj, I'm not 100% sure if I'm this type and was wondering if there's a better way of working that out instead of re-reading the type profile over and over again.

    The one thing that doesn't fit right for me is the fact that ESFj's fifth function is Ti, and I work in IT. At the moment I'm working with infrastructure, but am well into development/programming...
    LII kthnxbai!
