My Epitaph

If you don't question everything, you will know nothing and believe anything!

ENTP: That's me!

I still have to take the test, but within a 99.9% confidence interval, I expect at least a 99.5% chance of scoring my traditional ENTP.

"So despite their status as Extraverts, ENTPs can resemble INT types with regard to their skepticism and unconventional thinking."

If you don't question everything, you will know nothing and believe anything.

"Nonetheless, many ENTPs, especially those who have developed their auxiliary function, Introverted Thinking (Ti), come to recognize their penchant for philosophizing. Like INTPs, they enjoy exploring unifying patterns and broad metaphysical speculations. Despite these propensities, they seem less apt to develop an exclusive focus on intellectual pursuits. As Extraverts, they can be reluctant to focus on any singular pursuit, preferring to distribute their energies across different hobbies and interests."

"Like INTPs, they are more interested in discussing ideas than engaging in small talk. Their Ne, Ti, and Fe confer an interest in analyzing what makes people tick—their motivations, interests, patterns, and propensities. Through their relationships, ENTPs sharpen their theories of human nature and enjoy themselves along the way."

Every source, including your subconscious, has an agenda, but it takes effort to ascertain agendas.  Sometimes, the symbol/logo of a publishing house may reveal the agenda of a book, or at least an agenda that overlaps the author's agenda enough to both profit.  If you remain unaware of human propensity towards confirmation bias, how would you ever hope to catch your subconscious committing confirmation bias?

"Like other NTs, they generally excel in math and science. But as dominant Intuitives, they tend to have broad scholastic interests that extend into the arts and humanities. Their inferior function, Introverted Sensing (Si), may also contribute to an interest in history."

I grew up excelling in math, and science was pretty easy, too, and if you don't learn from history it will repeat, and when I had time in my backbrace to really question everything, I commenced my own exploration of history reading the same entries in every encyclopedia I could find between 1860's English Cyclopedia and the most recent ones.  I saw how some information peaked between 1875 and before WW1, and then sentences, paragraphs and pages get edited out of the encyclopedias through time.  The number one form of mind control is information control, and anyone can replicate my studies with time and motivation.

"Their Ne (as well as their lack of Te) can make ENTPs reluctant to work within highly structured systems or organizations. Unfortunately, the modern working world seems primarily suited for those with Te in their functional stack (especially TJ types). Rife with rules, policies, and regulations, nearly all professions, as well as academic and research institutions, have become Te-laden in their methods and operations. Consequently, ENTPs often struggle to find jobs and careers that allow them to function authentically as ENTPs."

I should include that statement on a resume/CV/job application.  I could probably sue if I got fired for reasons beyond my control.

"ENTPs with religious affiliations may function as missionaries, pastors, or ministers, although their knack for deviating from conventional dogmas and traditions may precipitate problems."

I am the heretic's heretic because my sword's name is Iconoclast.

The above citations and rebuttals/confessions should be fairly obvious for any of you playing along with me for any amount of time.  I will read that site's pages for all 16 types, just as I have on other websites.  What if we are suppose to organize like a social insect hive, but with more types than insects?  Could it be possible that if everyone knew their strengths and weaknesses, and where those fit in amongst others, could we all, collectively create an ideal utopia where our collective Gene-I-Us exponentially surpasses the sum of our individual genius. 

Just like a mosaic jigsaw puzzle made up of human faces can form data that would never be accessed without the putting together of the pieces in proper order, what if we need to learn how to best "fit" together where, for instance, my weaknesses, like starting more projects than I finish, were more than compensated from by knowing the best type to delegate a projects' completion because it best suits their strengths?
