00:01 – Welcome to C.S. Joseph Responds. 00:03 I am your host, Chase, here to answer your questions 00:06 on any topic Jungian Analytical Psychology 00:09 or Four Sides Dynamics. 00:11 Also do not forget my lucky Stanley FatMax Xtreme 00:16 FuBar III Demolition hammer. 00:18 It’s excellent and definitely an amazing team member 00:23 for my YouTube team on a consistent basis. 00:26 It’s excellent for getting through anything. 00:30 You need to rescue somebody? 00:31 Use a demolition hammer. 00:32 You need to create a spontaneous exit for yourself, 00:35 demolition hammer. 00:36 So I mean, why not ever have a demolition hammer 00:39 in your office? 00:40 I mean, I do, so. 00:41 I figured it is definitely appropriate 00:43 to have it on the show. 00:45 So anyway, onto today’s question. 00:47 Today’s question comes from, and let’s see if I can actually 00:50 get the camera here working properly. 00:52 Kay, it comes from Quora. 00:54 And it is are ENTPs usually assertive 00:58 compared to an ENTJ? 01:00 And this is an excellent question, 01:01 especially since I am an ENTP 01:03 and I’ll be happy to discuss this thing. 01:07 And Quora wants to know CS, can you answer this question? 01:11 Yes, I can. 01:12 But let’s see how other people have answered it. 01:15 Tama Lynn, who is software, mergers and acquisitions 01:19 answered on July 2nd, 2019. 01:22 She says, quote, I would say yes, 01:25 from my anecdotal experience. 01:28 But ENTPs are not likely inclined toward leadership 01:31 as much as creation and bulldozing their individual path. 01:34 They hold firmly to their perceptions 01:36 and will be stubborn and assertive, 01:38 but apply it differently. 01:39 Both can bulldoze and be very driven, 01:42 but the ENTJ is more focused on vision 01:46 for a project, group, bottom line, 01:48 where the ENTP is more focused on doing 01:50 their thing individually. 01:52 This is absolutely my experience anecdotally 01:54 and I am curious to what others think. 01:56 From just a typing standpoint I could be totally wrong! 02:01 And yes, Tama Lynn, thank you for admitting 02:05 that you are completely and totally wrong 02:07 because yes, yes you are. 02:10 And let me tell you why. 02:13 As I adjust the camera. 02:15 So why are you wrong? 02:17 So she talks about how an ENTJ is more focused on the vision 02:22 and that’s absolutely incorrect. 02:24 ENTPs are known as the visionary types, 02:26 also known as the rogue, according to Four Sides Dynamics. 02:29 My version, or my interpretation of 02:32 Jungian Analytical Psychology, 02:34 and quite frankly, Tama Lynn is inaccurate at this point 02:39 because ENTPs are all about the vision. 02:42 It’s because of our extroverted intuition hero, 02:45 where we are aware of the greater what-if, 02:48 the greater future, unlimited possibilities, 02:51 unlimited futures, and it’s everyone’s futures, 02:54 everyone’s intentions. 02:56 Where people are going, what their future is, 02:58 it’s basically being aware of fate, right? 03:00 An ENTJ is not aware of that. 03:02 An ENTJ is all about what they want, 03:05 because of their introverted intuition parent. 03:06 Introverted intuition is a person’s passion, 03:10 it’s their desire. 03:12 Extroverted intuition is awareness 03:14 of other people’s passion. 03:16 It is where someone is able to develop 03:18 their own sense of desirability. 03:20 To make oneself desirable, 03:22 they would need extroverted intuition 03:23 because they would understand how 03:25 to make themselves desirable, right? 03:27 And this is what ENTPs do. 03:29 Whereas an ENTJ is actually more focused on themselves 03:32 as a result. 03:34 So and this is just another example of how people 03:38 and their MBTI assumptions, you know, 03:40 with the cognitive functions, et cetera, 03:42 are completely backwards. 03:43 People think the definition of introverted intuition 03:45 and extroverted intuition are like, inversed, 03:48 and they’re not, actually. 03:49 They are not inversed because introverted intuition 03:52 is what I want, whereas extroverted intuition 03:55 is what we want, right? 03:57 Our fate versus my fate, right? 04:00 Introverted intuition is my path forward, 04:03 whereas extroverted intuition is our path forward. 04:07 Extroverted intuition is aware of 04:09 all that has happened before will happen again. 04:11 It’s all about history repeating itself. 04:13 Anyone who is a historian is typically 04:16 an extroverted intuitive type. 04:18 So they’re the Si user, they use introverted sensing, 04:21 they use extroverted intuition because those two functions 04:23 are on cognitive axis. 04:25 If you wanna learn more about that, 04:26 I recommend checking out season 5 playlist 04:28 on my other YouTube channel titled C.S. Joseph. 04:31 Just search for cognitive synchronicity, et cetera. 04:34 It explains all that. 04:36 But the point is, for the sake of this question, 04:40 are ENTPs usually assertive compared to ENTJs? 04:44 Depends. 04:45 It really depends. 04:46 It’s actually, this is a very contextual question. 04:48 So the question’s context is basically, 04:52 ENTPs are very, very assertive provided they actually know 04:57 what the truth is because of their Ti parent. 04:59 Ti parent is awareness of logic and logos. 05:02 It gives them the ability to spout facts 05:05 and not necessarily beliefs. 05:06 Whereas ENTJs are primarily all about belief. 05:10 And they’re all about data. 05:11 Whereas ENTPs are about information and knowledge, 05:15 whereas ENTJs are primarily all about data 05:18 and secondarily about wisdom, 05:20 basically within their decision making. 05:22 And ENTPs are all about data, et cetera. 05:26 So, or all about information and knowledge, excuse me. 05:29 I confused myself there for a second. 05:33 Anyway, the point is ENTJs are very assertive 05:37 if other people are being disloyal to them, 05:39 if other people’s performance is going down, et cetera. 05:43 Whereas the ENTP’s not really gonna be typically assertive 05:46 in that context because as long as, 05:48 if it’s not impacting them personally and their own comfort 05:51 and their own experience, the ENTP’s really just gonna 05:54 stick to the shadows. 05:55 Because here’s the bottom line. 05:56 ENTPs are the most introverted of the extroverts. 05:59 It’s oftentimes why when ENTPs are taking these stupid 06:02 online MBTI tests, which are only one out of five accurate, 06:07 which is really pathetic if you ask me, 06:09 but I mean, it is what it is. 06:10 Just not really much you could do about it. 06:12 My own test will be out soon and it will not, 06:14 it will be insanely accurate, 06:16 whereas those tests are just absolutely terrible 06:19 and multiple choice, LOL. 06:20 My tests are not multiple choice, thank God. 06:23 But the point is, an ENTP, in that regard, 06:28 it’s about their comfort level. 06:29 Because remember, an ENTP’s very afraid of the unfamiliar. 06:33 Whereas an ENTJ is afraid of improper moral decision making. 06:37 They are afraid of coming off as greedy, 06:40 they’re afraid of being a bad person, 06:42 they go out of their way to be a good person 06:44 because they’re afraid that they’re not good enough, 06:45 that they lack worthiness in some capacity. 06:49 But when it comes to raw data, raw numbers, 06:52 pricing, performance, especially in a business situation 06:57 or anything in general, they take those things 06:59 very seriously and they don’t care how bad they feel 07:02 about something because it’s not about them anymore, 07:04 it’s about what the data says. 07:06 This is kinda like you know how you have a marriage, right? 07:09 And let’s say that in your marriage, 07:12 you’re arguing about finances, right? 07:14 Well, what you do in that situation 07:16 is you create a budget that both of you agree, 07:19 and it’s not the other person’s fault, 07:20 it’s the budget’s fault. 07:21 This is literally how ENTJs approach things 07:23 because it’s like, no it’s not my fault, the data! 07:26 The data is the problem. 07:28 We need to fix the statistics here. 07:30 ENTPs don’t do that. 07:31 ENTPs are like, okay, well, what am I doing right now? 07:35 Versus the ENTJ which is like, 07:37 well what are we doing right now? 07:39 And the ENTJ’s all about what are we doing 07:40 and what do I want? 07:41 The ENTP’s like, well what do we want 07:43 versus what am I doing? 07:45 Tell me what I should do, as a result. 07:48 So an ENTP will become assertive 07:51 basically when they’re uncomfortable. 07:54 The reason why is because they have a fear of the unknown. 07:57 ENTPs are afraid of the unfamiliar, basically 08:01 and the reason why is because any time 08:03 they’re confronted with the unfamiliar, 08:05 they have to get to a point 08:06 where they have to familiarize themselves 08:09 and they have to, doing a new task or something like that, 08:12 it’s all about getting to a point where 08:15 they create new habits. 08:17 Whereas ENTJs don’t need to create a new habit, 08:19 they could just execute on it. 08:21 Also another huge difference between ENTPs and ENTJs 08:24 is that ENTPs are very movement, very progression oriented. 08:28 They’ll make multiple attempts at doing something 08:32 but with no planning, basically, 08:33 and it’s a learn as you go process. 08:35 An ENTJ however will only make one attempt 08:37 but they’ll put a whole bunch of planning 08:40 into that one attempt to get the best desired outcome. 08:43 That’s why they’re outcome focused. 08:45 That’s another difference. 08:46 It’s really only if any of these things threaten, 08:49 if they threaten their insecurities 08:51 such as fear of the unfamiliar. 08:53 If they’re having something unfamiliar, 08:54 I mean the ENTPs can be pretty assertive about that. 08:56 If the ENTP knows what they’re talking about, 08:58 they’re gonna be really assertive about that, 09:01 whereas the ENTJ is if the data looks wrong, 09:04 if their freedom of choice is being taken away, 09:06 if other people are performing badly 09:08 or if their performance is badly, 09:09 if they’re being forced against their will to perform badly 09:12 and they end up looking bad, 09:14 then they’re going to be assertive. 09:15 So quite frankly, the answer to this question 09:17 really is are ENTPs usually assertive 09:20 compared to an ENTJ? 09:22 Yes, technically. 09:24 Asterisk. 09:26 It’s basically like yeah, everyone is assertive, 09:30 it’s just why are they assertive? 09:32 That’s basically the reason, so. 09:34 Anyway, folks, I hope you enjoyed this video. 09:37 If you like what you see here, 09:38 please subscribe to the channel, leave a comment below, 09:40 ask any questions about these types. 09:41 I’ll be happy to answer your questions. 09:42 I literally read every comment. 09:44 Please leave a like while you’re at it 09:46 and otherwise, thank you for watching 09:48 and I’ll see you guys tonight.
