…. A biography
Don’t tell me what to do, I’m going to do it anyway.
1. We have no idea what’s going on. Like, ever. Not even one time.
2. We’re damn good at making you think that we know what’s going on, and that it was our plan all along.
3. We’re so frickin loyal it’s not even funny. We play it off like we don’t care about anyone, but we would legit do absolutely ANYTHING for those we care about.
4. If we’re trying to be extra funny, you know something’s up. We’re most likely covering up our emotions with a good ole unhealthy dose of sarcasm and depreciating humor.
5. Our secrets have secrets. We may seem like open books, but believe me. There’s sooo much more going on under the surface.
6. We absolutely need time for ourselves to think. We’re the kind of extroverts that you may have to drag to a party, but we’ll be the life of the party when we get there.
7. We. Need. Attention. For everything we do. Even though we give off this sort of “I don’t care what you think” vibe, we need constant validation, even just someone saying “oh cool”. We thrive to impress people, no matter how hard to believe that is.
8. We feel stress just the same as any other type. We just choose to bury it deep deep down where no one can see it, and let it blow up in our faces later.
9. I didn’t talk enough about validation. We have this hunger to do something and to be someone. We need to make a difference, somehow, somewhere.
10. We hate it when people have us figured out. We hate it even more when people only think that they have us figured out, but they’ve got us all wrong.
11. We hate to be ignored. Like, seriously. If we ask you for something, which is something we very rarely do, we expect you to take the time to listen to us.
12. We are the most caring assholes you’ll ever meet. We love to make people happy, but we’ll grumble about it the whole time.
13. We hate being overestimated. Underestimate us, please. We get strength from being the underdog. If we feel like you’re putting too much on us, we’ll just give up because we don’t see that it’s worth it to fail.
14. Challenge us. For the love of God, give us something to argue about. Complacency is a danger to us ENTPs, and it can lead us to very bad habits. We need someone or something that’ll spark our interest, or we’ll go insane.
15. We’re really full of mushy gushy stuff on the inside. No one’s supposed to know that.
16. We feel overwhelmed a lot, and when we do, you need to give us space to sort things out. Like, two minutes. Please.
17. We lie. Constantly. About everything. Watch your back.
18. We deserve respect. With everything that we do for the people around us, we deserve at least a little bit.
Ok, rant over. Sorry for exposing us for what we really are. Ciao

Also known as an ambivert, an extroverted introvert is someone who exhibits qualities of both introversion and extroversion.
1. Their spot on the spectrum changes with their environment.
Your ambivert friend may be loud and gregarious around their family, but quiet and thoughtful at the office. Seeing them in both situations may feel like meeting two entirely different people.
2. Talking to strangers is fine – but don’t expect them to keep it to small talk.
Although an ambivert can hold up their end of a conversation, talking about the weather will not be enough to engage them. Their social energy is limited enough that they won’t want to waste it on meaningless chatter. They will likely push the conversation into deeper territory or bow out entirely.
3. They like to be alone – they don’t like to be lonely.
There is a big difference between the two. Choosing to sit at home with a tub of ice cream and a book feels fantastic. Sitting at home because nobody called them back feels sad and lame.
4. Getting them out of the house can be a challenge.
If you catch your friend on a highly introverted day, you may just be better off leaving them at home. They might manage to be social, but they’ll just be thinking about their books and their couch the whole time.
5. If they’re new, you can find them in the back of the room.
An introverted extrovert will approach new situations with cautious excitement. If they know someone in the group, they will likely cling to them a bit as they become comfortable. If they do not, they might waver on the edge of the crowd, slowly getting used to the water rather than jumping in all at once.
6. They’re selectively social.
They don’t mean to be snobs. They just have limited social energy and prefer interacting one-on-one or in small groups. For this reason, they can only afford to invest their social time and energy in those who they feel truly connected to.
7. Making friends is easy. Keeping them is hard.
They like talking to people, but they value their alone-time, as well. This can make maintaining a friendship tricky. If your ambivert friend makes an effort to consistently invest time and energy in your friendship, be glad. You are truly special to them.
8. Their social desires change with the breeze.
They might be desperate to hang out with you on Friday, but then not answer your call on Saturday. They’re not mad at you. They’re just super comfortable in bed watching films.
9. They can talk to you for hours.
If you manage to catch them in a one-on-one situation, an extroverted introvert will just not shut up. Once their interest is engaged, there’s no stopping them.
10. Listening is great too, though.
Sometimes they want to be a part of the action, but their social energy levels are too low for them to contribute in a meaningful way. Listening allows them to get to know you without burning up their social fuel. They also know its value from their chattier moments when they are desperate for an ear.
Are entps empathic?
In a group setting, we have the ability to have a idea of what people are feeling–but it doesn’t mean that we know at all times. Sometimes we pay attention, but more often, we don’t care. Or we’re annoyed. We’re certainly not sympathetic.
When we’re one-on-one with someone, we can seem really empathetic. We can listen and give appropriate advice. We probably even care. But once we go back to talking to a group of people or leave the conversation, we might’ve been annoyed, and don’t realize it until we’ve left the conversation.
With our close friends and family we’re the most empathetic we can be. And it’s beautiful. But it really shows that when we’re not empathetic, it’s partially because we just don’t want to be.
Just FEEL it. Flow with it...
