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. In this illustration, you see the emphasis on competency, independence, and flexibility often characteristic of people who have preferences for ENTP.

Notice how the participant writes about being a passionate speaker, a characteristic of those who prefer to express their many ideas (Ne). This person notes that their comments may either motivate or irritate others, a common experience of those who prefer ENP. Their enthusiasm can inspire but can also be interpreted more cynically in a “Why are they trying so hard to convince me” way.

    “Ok. I’ll try it if you need me to, because then, if I’m not competent, IT’S NOT MY FAULT.”

    I’ve been certified as an MBTI practitioner for 10 years, and this is by far the best (and truest…) thing I have read on a personality-type blog in a LONG TIME.

    This is my new motto. Thanks, guys!
