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. The words they use clearly describe their dominant open-ended, idea-focused approach of Extraverted Intuition (Ne). The “mouth open” process they mention is often characteristic of ENTPs and ENFPs as they generate ideas and options by thinking out loud. The auxiliary Introverted Thinking (Ti) also comes through as this group expressed their preference to be self-reliant, self-directed, and autonomous.

The acronym FOOFY is a joke, not intended to be accurate or even spelled correctly. They are playfully emphasizing the differences between thinking and feeling preferences.

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