How to Take Care of your ENTP

How to Take Care of your ENTP

Because Everyone Needs One


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.

20 Fun Facts To Use When Introducing Yourself

As we embark on the semester, we are put on the spot in order to share interesting details about ourselves. This article discloses possible fun facts to tell others!

After experiencing my first week of classes, I have learned that every student needs a handy-dandy list of fun facts about themselves to tell other people. Many professors use the first couple of classes to learn about their students, so you may need to think about who you are and how you want to introduce yourself to your professor and classmates. We all have that one go-to interesting fact about ourselves, but sometimes you just have to mix it up!

1. My favorite hobby is...

What do you do in your free time? Personally, I love to stay active! I am a competitive Latin dancer and enjoy teaching and taking Zumba classes, going to the gym, and hiking.

2. I love...

Is there something, someone, or somewhere that you love? What makes your heart ache? What do you miss when it's gone? I can say that I love my friends because I feel my most confident when I'm surrounded by those who love and support me.

3. I look up to...

Is there someone you adore? Who mesmerizes you? Who do you wish to learn from? After watching "A Ballerina's Tale," I discovered Misty Copeland. In 2015 she became the first African American ballet dancer to become the Female Principal Dancer at American Ballet Theatre. Her passion, grace, and strength continuously motivate me to better myself as an athlete and an individual.

4. This art speaks to me because...

Coco Chanel said, "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different." This encourages me to always follow my heart no matter what. I will never follow society's standards and norms because they do not define me. Chanel's saying definitely influences my character and lifestyle.

5. A funny and/or embarrassing memory of me is...

When you make others laugh they want to spend time and make memories with you! Don't be afraid to embarrass yourself. You will come off as down to earth, easy-going, and loyal.

6. My siblings or lack thereof influenced me by...

I can go on and on about my brother, who is 10 years older than I. We have opposite personalities and despite the age gap, we're quite close.

7. My pet(s) are my life because...

Only sad people don't like hearing about furry creatures, even if your pets are slimy and slithering creatures all human beings enjoy hearing pet tales!

8. I'm afraid of...

Your personality can be revealed by your likes and dislikes, including the things that you fear. I am terrified of change and the unknown, hence, the future is an anxiety-inducing topic to discuss for me.

9. I am the way I am because...

What have you gone through in life that has shaped you into who you are today? Remember to be open minded and allow yourself to open up to your peers. You may be surprised by how others respond and/or what others have endured as well.

10. The most unusual item that can be found in your dorm...

This is a fun fact about yourself that can easily liven up an awkward conversation. Think about your quirks and differences! One item I have in my dorm is my teddy bear, Peter, whom I like to joke is my boyfriend.

11. My dream job is...

In college, "What's your major?" is a widespread question. Nonetheless, skip the boring statement of "I'm majoring in..." and go in depth on what your dream job is (hopefully your major factors in to this dream of yours).

12. My hidden talents are...

Angelina Jolie is a knife thrower. Kendall Jenner can produce bird noises. Amanda Seyfried can crochet and knit. Is there anything special you can do? Some people have rare and unique talents, maybe you can think of some hidden talents of your own!

13. My guilty pleasure is...

I will say it a million times: don't be shy when introducing yourself to new people! I'll start by divulging my guilty pleasure: Youtube's family vlogging channel, "OKBaby"!

Check them out:

14. Some activities on my bucket list are...

This is an easy way to grab people's attention and find others with similar desires as you. Be an adventurer! Go out of your comfort zone!

15. Talk about your best friend...

How would your best friend describe you? What do you love to do with your best friend?

16. Talk about an accomplishment of yours...

You are incredible and have achieved so much! Reveal something that you are proud of — show off a little!

17. This one time at my job...

Bosses breathing down your neck. Curious coworkers asking personal questions. Cursing customers who never leave you alone. Your job can be filled with tons of hilarious situations that can easily entertain a crowd.

18. During the summer...

Any scars with stories? Any summer flings? Any lessons learned from the tanning too long? Now that summer is over, disclose memories that can leave positive impressions on others.

19. I volunteer at...

Do you do any community service? Share a funny moment while you were volunteering. What did you learn while there? Would you continue?

20. [blank] is meaningful to me because...

What do you appreciate in life? What brightens your day? What makes you fall in love? What does someone have to do to make you smile?

Finally, remember to be outgoing! Reveal that three-mile smile and open your arms to learning about others. Spread smiles, love, and happiness.

Dear teacher that I used to love,

I used to love going to your classes in elementary school.

I used to love the after school activities that you would have.

I used to love coming over spending the night (since I became friends with your daughter).

I loved all the new things everyone introduced me to.

I loved how you would let me stay for a week because the snow wouldn't stop.

But somehow that all began to change...due to one little incident.

It was a misunderstanding, but how it was dealt with at the beginning was not right.

Calling out a high schooler when your the adult also is not the right way

Calling them out on social media is never the right way to deal with things, no matter the situation.

It hurt me that you felt that way about me, and the things that were said on that post hurt.

So when you apologized to me one day about it, and then asking me to come and join an activity like nothing ever happened.

At that time I couldn't forgive because I was still hurt and angry by everything that happened.

From that post it told me how you felt about me, over something that was miscommunicated. But because we had slightly different views on things that worsened things in my opinion.

Sure did I comment on somethings saying my opinion on things? Yes. But it was just to bring in information that most people didn't fully understand, not to bring you down.

Now today if I see you in public sometimes we say hi, but not so much anymore.

I see on social media that you comment on other students accomplishments in school or in life.

But whenever I post something about my life, or an article I get nothing. And honestly, it hurts a lot.

I would think I would at least get a like, but honestly I feel that anything I post doesn't even get looked at.

I have moved passed that post. The hurt is still there though.


Your former elementary school student
