Do ILEs care if people don't understand their logic? IEI.
ENTps can have a very difficult time making friends; most ENTps have a tendency to be a tad self-absorbed, and can unintentionally appear standoffish or reserved to people. Some of them may not have very many friends or a few close friends. Because of this, they may sometimes give off the impression that they do not like anyone at all.
Again.. I always thought this sounded mroe like an introvert...
Whether a person has friends or not has nothing to do with extroversion or introversion, unless you go by the MBTI defintions ...
It also has to do with the ENTp PoLR and hidden agenda ... an ENTp believing that no one likes them may appear very reserved and aloof, friendly one moment and reserved and distant the next. That statement is even in Ganin's ENTp description over at socionics.com
But in reality, ENTps possess a rare divergent learning ability that has not been favored well by many systems of schooling, the ability to link concepts asymmetrically to other concepts using objects and systems that are similar in concept, yet totally different. In this aspect, ENTps have been gifted with a form of intelligence like no other. Though few appreciate or see value in this fact.
BULLSHIT! I never agreed with this... ILEs ARE generally rewared in school...
Maybe they are maybe they are not ... I am pretty intelligent myself, but caring to impress the teachers is another story alltogether.
They can also be very messy, and have a hard time taking care of themselves. They can become so distracted with every day matters, that they lose track of their health.
Nope, Si suggestive function ... that is what their dual ISFp is there to do for them,
They do not like to have their independence threatened by unnecessary rules, and they can appear expedient and out-of-place in a society that values any various forms of unnecessary subjugation
That has nothing to do with
, I am not sure where you got that ... ENTps are not always ones to repect established authority and may come into conflict with them just for doing that they naturally do. It happens to me all the time.
They can use their intuitive understanding of situations and their ability to see the internal workings beyond smoke and mirrors, and to warn of danger. However, they can at times see danger where none really exist, which often causes people to not take them seriously.
Introverted Intuition.. again.
That is neither introverted or extroverted intuition ... just intuition period.
If an ENTp fails to absorb all necessary hints and clues about his or her surroundings during a signifigantly potential or important event, his or her mind could unintentionally distort that information, causing the ENTp to perceive and relay information to others that may not have a complete bearing on reality.
Nope, that is called divergent learning, and is not really type related although ENTps tend to demonstrate it much more than other types.
ENTps are actually pretty positive people, who enjoy life greatly. Unless circumstances prove it necessary, they rarely find reason to think negatively about people. They seek to accept and to understand people for who they are inside.
I was probably being a little fluffy with that statement ...
