ENTPs at their best

ENTP personality types are innovative thinkers and natural problem solvers. Other people enjoy conversations with them because of their enthusiastic way of communicating and debating.

While ENTPs can be quite assertive about things they believe in, they’re more the “lead by doing” type, rather than the type who makes demands or gives orders. Overall, ENTPs are enigmatic, resourceful, and inspiring.

Potential development areas for ENTPs

Because ENTPs are so resourceful and driven, they can be hard on people they view as incompetent or unmotivated. This can have the opposite effect than they hoped for, often making other people withdraw or become defeated.

Because ENTPs are always focused on solving problems, they tend to worry a bit too much when under stress. They can become very upset when faced with a problem they can’t solve.

Types and Stress

ENTPs and stress

ENTPs are stressed by routine or monotony. They don’t really thrive in jobs or lifestyles that have the same schedule every day. ENTPs likely crave new situations and new challenges. They start to feel restless when faced with boring tasks, or other people’s personal problems that distract from more important work. When under stress, ENTPs tend to throw themselves into their work. This can backfire if it causes them to do things incorrectly or creates more work for themselves.

If you’re an ENTP personality type, you can try a few key things to balance these feelings of stress.
