    Default CYNICISM! The old Greek philosophy for ENTps!

    This is weird, because I can not help but to see some many ENTp qualities displayed in cynicism; the guy who created it had to have been ENTp! I think so much like this it is rediculous ...


    "Despite the negative portrayal of cynics, some would argue that such people simply "refuse to look through rosy-tinted spectacles" and do not fear to demolish popular beliefs no matter how sacred society considers such alleged misconceptions. Cynics themselves tend to take this view, regarding themselves as enlightened free thinkers, and their critics as deluded social pretenders who "bury their heads in the sand". However, an excess of cynicism in an individual can cause social or psychological difficulties when cynics see themselves as depersonalised and self-serving inhabitants of a meaningless, fictitious, and shallow world." [excerp from wikpedia]

    Agreed. Those definitions seem to fit ENTP like a glove. However, the forum on that website is filled with annoying arrogant trolls who are too cynical to learn how to have an actual discussion. Cynicism can't carry over into a productive dialogue.

    Yeah, that is why you really need to keep a level head as an ENTp ... atleast try not to look like an arrogent idealist every once in a while ... that is when tact should come in handy.
