How to Take Care of your ENTP

Because Everyone Needs One

How to Take Care of your ENTP

Every personality type is needed. There is no "superior" personality type to all other personality types. The ENTP personality type is not the rarest personality type, but everyone needs an ENTP. As an ENTP, I can tell you how to take care of your ENTP once you find your own.

1. Argue the Right Way

Do not be afraid to argue your points with an ENTP. If you are right, your ENTP will admit that you are right. However, if your ENTP thinks you are wrong and you cannot find a logical argument that proves that you are right, then your ENTP will continue to think that you are wrong. If you want the respect of an ENTP in an argument, be willing to argue for your points and do not get upset if the ENTP has found a logical argument that proves you wrong. If your ENTP can handle being wrong, so should you. The ENTP does not question your argument to always be mean; the ENTP may question your argument because you are wrong. Do not be petty and childish.

2. Give them Creative Space

For your ENTP, the rules are not always made to be broken, but your ENTP may want to find a loophole between rules just because of the rush of adrenaline from doing so. Engaging in divergent thinking, according to psychologist Guilford, is the measurement of high creativity. High creativity is considered as the highest level of intelligence. Utilizing creativity should not be discouraged in your ENTP. Even if you do not implement your ENTP's ideas, at least appreciate the creativity that was used for those ideas.

3. Do not tell them that they cannot do something

They can because "can" implies capability. If you don't want your ENTP to do something, ask them not to do it. If the ENTP thinks that he/she CAN do whatever you said not to do, they will simply think that you are confused. Instead, ask them not to do something and give them your reasoning. ENTPs are highly sensitive to people trying to limit other people's abilities. Nothing makes an ENTP tick like knowing that someone is trying to limit their potential, being able to prove that person wrong, and thwarting their attempts at limiting their growth. ENTPs believe in invention, creativity, and growth. The opposite of invention, creativity, and growth are forced beliefs that inhibit people's abilities. People tell other people that they cannot do something when the truth is that they want power over those people by limiting them and making them believe that they cannot do something.

4. Recognize their right to privacy

Your ENTP may not be as funny and creative as they can be when they are not around the right people. ENTPs know that some people may want to inhibit them, so they may only show off how cool they are around the people that they feel most comfortable around. Due to their instincts, some ENTPS like Walt Disney are and were accused of not having their fun personalities because not everyone was allowed to witness them. People think they have a right to lie about an ENTP's personality even when they haven't spent any quality time with that ENTP. The ENTP's first instinct is to not give away that quality time to allow people to lie about them. A person's personality is not public property that can be tampered with and molded by the public. However, some people seem to believe that simply lying about someone's personality make them the authors of that person's life.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
