ENTPs are detectives, hackers, explorers, and empiricists. They base themselves on the facts that they can see and touch. They keep an open mind to everything new around them. Their minds are highly disorganized but creative. They act to learn, improve, and overcome challenge. They see what is going to happen before it does, and act quickly to respond to it. They are catalysts for change and able to see multiple solutions to any new problem.

You’re intelligent and value efficiency and people who are able to think up smart ways to do things. You have alot of ideas and opinions but you prefer to discuss them with others before you make them. You like to sell and promote your ideas and debates, and the success of an idea to you on how good you sell it. You’re well in touch with your community and your neighborhood and have strong social networks.
You tend to be quick to trust and to share with others, freely expressing your ideas and strategies with others. You enjoy share your facts and engaging in logical discussions with others, and while you may get slightly frustrated with others at times, you tend to be quick to forgive them. As an ENTP, you tend to connect with others unusually quickly, but you connect more about ideas and on similar work-related goals than on a personal level. ENTPs like to live fast, to enjoy every moment, to act quickly and with wit and charm. ENTPs are rebellious, stimulation seeking, and adventurious.
Because of your love for progress and creativity, you tend to frown on traditions and social necessities. You find politness to often be an obstacle and would rather people just state their opinions openly. ENTPs are hard-working, and often have a lot on their plates. You often say and do things you regret, but your friends see this as a part of your direct and honest style. As an ENTP, you tend to be highly open to new ideas and somewhat easily distracted – perhaps you could work on your focus at times. Your ideal romantic partner tends to be the INTJ. Their love for logic, their ability to reflect deeply on things, and their decisiveness appeals to you greatly.
