Illustrations of Type – ENTP

Illustrations of Type – ENTP

By Donna Dunning

In my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction -“Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from an ENTP group. In this poster you can see the energy surrounding ideas and the interest in being creative, flexible, and spontaneous (Ne). The introverted thinking (Ti) also comes through in the language, in words such as high standards, efficient, and competence.

Look closely at the letters across the top to find miniature images of the adventurous ENTP.

This is the second ENTP poster in the Illustrations of Type series.

    Yup, this looks just about right! I am a confirmed ENTP and every single word linked to the cloud is representative of my preferences. I love the words and pictures attached to the “ENTP” at the top (would not have noticed this detail, though, until you pointed it out!). Adventure, competence…A++ overachiever with very high expectations of self and others…very interesting to see it all on one page. Thanks for sharing these images, I regularly take a peek and have fun discovering different types, including my own!

    Disagree with the idea of this particular exercise. I don’t understand how you expect people to express themselves in a ‘true’ manner AFTER they know what their type is all about. This certainly seems to be the case with this exercise. I think the exercise that would be better is to ‘express yourself using words, phrases, or pictures’. And THEN when one categorizes them, one can see the similarities/dissimilarities in the style of types.

    The exercise you use, in the present format obviously means that the group knows what their type is, and in essence, they are ‘under pressure’ to live up to the type description. In this manner, what they are expressing might not at all be true to what they really are. It might well easily be a simple drawing, we are reading too much into. I feel that it’s almost ‘forced’, and hence there can be nothing valuable drawn from this.
