Season 10, Episode 4 Transcript
– What’s up, fellow ego hackers? Yeah, if you didn’t know that, that’s what we’re calling the members of this community now, ego hackers, ’cause I totally scored egohacker.com. Dope. But anyway, welcome to season 10, episode four, and actually filmed in the car studio. Let’s see how long I can look at the camera while driving, for example. Let’s see how far I can get away with it and whatnot, but yeah, no, not doing that. Not interested in dangerous driving. What I am interested in is actually doing a lecture, because I haven’t done a lecture in a long time. Well, why is that? Well, because of #dramainmylife, and also, because I’ve been doing a lot of work for my day job, and going off far away places like Orlando, and then Denver, and then back in San Jose again, because I live in San Jose, but yeah. So I am back and filming lots of lectures. I got a member of my team, who’s Mr. Accountability for me, and just making sure that I continue to produce, right? So that’s what I’m here for. I’m going to be producing for you, the audience, I promise. So let’s keep it going. Let’s keep it straight. And let’s see how many lectures I can get filmed today, because I was invited to go to dinner tonight with friends. So definitely wanna make it. So, be that as it may, welcome. Welcome back to season 10, episode four. So this is an episode that has been asked for a long time, and yeah, we’re definitely, definitely doing it today.
So how do ENTPs compare with ENFPs? So these two types, I mean, I’m one of them. I am an ENTP, right? These two types are pretty dope. This is actually one of the more requested lectures that I’ve gotten over time, ’cause a lot of people have a hard time figuring out the difference between the two. Okay, fair enough. I mean, they’re pretty rare. You’re looking at, maybe, I don’t know, each type being two to 3.3% of the population of the planet, and that could cause a bunch of, wow, it’s like really cold in here, so I’m gonna turn that off, and maybe the sound would sound better, ’cause the fans not on. But anyway, so because of how rare these types are, there’s not very much you can compare these types to, like other people. And okay, I get it, even though like Tai Lopez, who is an ENFP, and he’s like, “Oh, guys, you know, the MBTI, like, you know, it just doesn’t really work.” I mean, of course it doesn’t work, because if you actually watched my season 15, I think it’s a season 15 episode about how the MBTI letter dichotomies are absolute utter crap, and why you shouldn’t be using them, maybe if he actually knew that ahead of time, he’d stop judging the science, or looping in the science with the test, because the test, I mean, the MBTI test is nothing more than a test, right? So that’s literally happening, but hey, you know, Tai Lopez, he’s like, “It’s all cool, guys. It’s cool, man. The best absolute test that you can take is the HEXACO test, man. That is the de facto personality test. Okay. Thank you very much, Te Child, for that analysis, good sir.
Of course, then again, if you ask certain people, they’d be like, “No, he’s not a good sir. He’s actually a bad sir, because he’s a con artist,” and it’s like, oh, very interesting. Well, fair enough. But I don’t really care that much about my opinion of Tai Lopez. Other than that, I mean, some of his stuff is good, some of it’s not, but I think that’s the same for literally everybody else. So let’s not freak out about it. So I mean, if he got rich, like ENFPs do, by pretending to be rich, and then they became rich because they pretended to be rich, more power to him. I mean, if that’s what he wants to do, that’s what he wants to do. And if he got rich, because of that, fair enough. I’m not gonna argue. He made it, okay? So that’s it, no reason for me to be a hater, because someone made it. ENFPs, you know, they gotta eat too, right? They gotta figure it out. So I’m not gonna get too bent over it, just as long as I’m not one of the victims of one of their schemes, you know what I’m saying? But then again, maybe you shouldn’t be either. So , but be that as it may. So interaction styles. So one of the reasons why it’s hard to tell the difference between these two types is because they have the same interaction style, which is informative, initiating a movement, which means they are a starter type.
Starter types, go, go, go, go, go. Put a lot of energy in the beginning, and then they peter out at the end. This is kind of typical with how they do it. However, if they’re able to focus all their energy on one thing at a time, which, guess what? With Ni Nemesis, it is possible between both of these two types, because we have Ni Nemesis right here with INTJ’s unconscious, and Ni Nemesis here with INFJ, unconscious. For the ENTP and the ENFP, both those types, they’re able to focus all their energy, so at that point in time, provided they are able to get alone and be left alone, and kind of spend some time introverting, where they’re forcing themselves to introvert, they can actually get a lot accomplished. Okay. That is very key. So, for example, if you’re in a relationship with an ENP, and you’re concerned, “Oh they’re putting all this energy right at the beginning. There’s all this intensity.” Is this intensity gonna go away after a while? No, not really. Because if they actually like truly, truly respect you, or truly, truly love you, et cetera, they’re actually gonna maintain that intensity all the way through, because they’re just focusing it on one thing, you, basically, but the thing is, though, it goes way beyond that. If they’re focusing on too many things, there are too many things that are diverting their attention, that’s what causes that energy to go. That’s why they have a hard time finishing things that they start, because they just get their attention divided so much in so many different ways, and so many different areas, it becomes a problem, right?
As a result of that, they’re not able to finish what they start, but they’re very informative, which means you kind of have to decode literally everything they say. They’re not really direct about things, especially ENFPS. ENTPs can be a little bit more direct, because they have Ti Parent. Ti Parents use logic, and logic is pretty dope, because logic is like, if this, then that. That’s literally what it is. That’s all it is. I mean, and then logically speaking, they can think their way through things, but it also causes them to make true or false statements, which can be pretty direct, because guess what? Ti, in and of its own right, is a very direct cognitive function, right? Whereas Te is actually kind of more informative, you know? Whereas Ti is not, so it can be an issue. I mean, well, Te actually can be really direct. I mean, it just depends what slot they’re in, but Ti, because it’s pessimistic, can’t. It’s pretty direct. Let’s be honest. So just be aware of those little tiny mini dichotomies when it comes to the cognitive functions.
We’re actually gonna be talking about the cognitive function slots a bit more in season 18, but right now, we need to get through season 10. When you get through season 14, we need to get through season 17 and then 18. And then we got, the foundation is laid, and then we are ready to move on into practical application. But regardless of practical application, let’s get back to the lecture. So they have the same interaction style. They’re both starter types. That can make it difficult to determine the difference between the two, fair enough. However, however, they have different temperaments. And this is really important. So ENFPs, even though they’re shysters, because let’s be honest, they’re shysters. Well, but wait, ENTPs are also shysters. So actually there’s like the shyster types, you know what I’m saying? They’re both shysters. So they’re shysters, although the ENFP is way more shysty than the ENTP, like way more, big time. Usually the ENTP, if they’re being a shyster, it’s probably because you deserve it. Whereas the ENFP, they’re being a shyster, because, let’s face it, they’re depraved and selfish. So that’s probably what’s happening when they’re shysting, but ENTP, it’s usually as a result of their sense of justice, right?
And it’s like, “Wow, you screwed me.” Here’s what the problem is, though, with the ENTP, though, is that they can get really deep with their ISFJ subconscious and the covert contracts, and covert contracts can cause a lot of problems, and then they end up exacting revenge, or vengeance, or justice, on somebody, because that person did not fulfill their covert contract. So it’s like very manipulative, and wrong, and they shouldn’t do that. So ENTPs listening to this, what are you people doing? Don’t do that to people. I was very much recently accused of doing that. And while I maintain that I don’t think that that’s what I did, I had opened myself to the possibility that that’s what I did, but I came to the conclusion that no, not really. It wasn’t really a covert contracting. It’s more of just having common sense expectations, right? Because covert contracting is actually innately manipulative. And again, regardless of the intentions, ’cause just remember, people, we are judged by our actions, not our intentions, because the road to hell is paved with good intentions. You still have to take responsibility for your actions, because actions speak louder than words. Actions are what matters most, right? So make sure you keep your head in that space. Back to temperaments. The ENFP’s an idealist, right, whereas the ENTP is an intellectual, and this is how you can really determine the difference. Now, most people out there think Gary Vaynerchuk, an ENFP, and Tai Lopez, an ENFP, they’re both ENFPs, but they consistently mistake that their Te Child is actually a Ti Parent, and then they actually say, “Oh, well, those people are ENTPs.” Actually, no, they’re not. They’re just very well-researched. That’s what Te Child is all about, whereas, an ENTP is going to argue, because they’re trying to determine the truth, whereas how ENFPs argue is that they’re just trying to find the next reference points, cite your sources.
That’s how they argue. It kinda has nothing to do with trying to find what’s absolutely true, what’s actually true. They don’t care about that that much. It’s not a priority for them, right? And that could be a major issue. So just be aware of that, be aware that, as one of the main differences, but so, ENFP, they’re very affiliative. They’re focused on doing the right thing, whereas the ENTP doesn’t care about doing the right thing. They’re just doing what works. What works for them is what works. There is no standard. There’s no authority that they are adhering to. In fact, ENTPs hate authority. Whereas ENFPs are trying to find out who the authority is, and then try to have a relationship with the authority figure, and be like, “Ah, that guy has got authority. Well, I obviously gotta be his friend, because he’s the decision maker around here. And if I’m like his friend, then that means he can do me favors, because I’m an ENFP, and ENFPs, we’re all about favors. Hey man, could you do me a favor? Can you do me a favor? Because if you do me a favor, I do you a favor,” and that’s the whole ENFP way. It’s all about favors, right? Whereas the ENTP is just like, “Meh, I’m just gonna do what I want, and just do what works, ’cause I’m pragmatic, yo. I’m intellectual, yo.” You know what I’m saying? The ENTP way, the Stefan Molyneux way, you know what I’m saying? Because we determined last night in the How to Type session that he was actually an ENTP, dope. So, you know, might wanna pay attention to that. I think that’s my new line now. I know it’s not something I’d recommend, but I think you might wanna pay attention to that. I think that’s like my new thing. I think that might be it. I mean, you can go ahead and tattoo it to your ass.
You can add it to the other CSJ tattoos that you have. I’m sure it’ll definitely do you some good on that one. We’ll find out, and no, I will not be revealing what tattoos I have on my ass either, ’cause definitely not talking about that. I mean, in order to talk about that, we’d probably have to be lovers, and since we’re not, I’m definitely not going there. So anyway, and no, I don’t have any tattoos on my ass, but be that as it may. Wow. I’m like really tangential today. So they’re also, so ENTPs are very systematic, right? Whereas ENFPs, you know, they’re very interest-based. Interest-based means, “Oh, what’s in it for me, what’s in it for you?” Whereas the ENTP is just trying to find a process, or understand the process, because process is everything to an ENTP, in that route. “What is the system? What is the system I need to build? What is the system I need to follow in order to get success in my life, or with whatever it is I’m doing?” Right, and then, obviously, you have, they’re both abstract versus concrete, so they’re both intuitive.
Okay, that’s another issue that could make them very similar, but fair enough. So, but yeah, temperament-wise, ENTP is an intellectual, whereas the ENFP is an idealist. Now the ENFP is an idealist. They’re often mistaken for intellectuals, because actually, they can become insanely academic. If they develop their ISTJ subconscious, they become very academic. And it’s through that level of academic understanding, that because it’s outward, academics are really outward, especially when it comes to credentials, most people label ENFPs as ENTPs, because guess what, folks? Because even though ENFPs have Ti Trickster, Ti Trickster is this thing where it’s like, okay, yeah, Ti Trickster, fair enough. But they still somehow end up passing tests to get into Mensa, because guess what? That’s what Tai Lopez did. There’s like, literally guys, you just have to pass a test to get into Mensa, and you can kind of study for it. You know what I’m saying? Guess what? ENFPs are amazing at passing tests. They can, as long as they study, because guess what? If an ENFP studies, no one can out-study them, because Te Child, they’re amazing at studying, right? So then they can gain the skills that they need to actually get what they need done. That’s how they do. That’s how they roll. ENTPs, not so much. Sometimes they don’t study enough. It’s one of the things I gotta tell you, ENTPs listening or watching, you guys need to freaking study.
If you’re not reading, you’re not going anywhere. Do you have any books? I read a week, I read three books now. I am on fire with reading, because if I’m not filming lectures in my car, I’m listening to audio books, getting stronger. Why aren’t you doing that? Why is it you’re doing the dishes? Or maybe you’re not doing the dishes at all? Why is it when you’re just doing homework, or why is it when you’re walking around, why is it when you’re driving, you’re not using an Audible account and listening to audio books, getting stronger? Seriously, why are you guys not doing this? Why are you wasting your time? Stop wasting your time. Don’t do it. So anyway, ENFPs, ENTPs, great. So let’s talk about cognitive functions. Cognitive function-wise, we have the expert intuition hero. I love it. I love extroverted intuition hero. It is so nice, it is so so very nice. So nice, mwah. Yes. It’s very nice. Why? Because I could see into the future, bro, guess what? Both these two types are known as the pathfinder types, because they could find the path. They could find the path for anybody. That’s why these two types are the shaman of the village, right? These are the shaman. They are not, they are not the alpha. They’re not the chief of the village. That’s not how they roll. They’re the shaman of the village. The shaman of the village is just as respected as the chief, but unlike the chief, the shaman can always dip out, and move on to the next village. Dope. And the shaman is responsible for the spiritual and mental growth, the psychological health, of the tribe, of the village. And these two types can handle that in spades. That’s what they do. And besides, that’s kinda why statistically, ENFPs, when it comes to people running cults, statistically it’s the ENFPs who are running the cults more than anyone else. I mean, it reminds me of this ENFP that I met recently, and he was telling me stories about being polyamorous, for example, and I’m like, “Interesting, because nice little culture you got there going, bro.” You know what I’m saying?
It’s a culture, not that I’m praising polyamory, because personally, I’m not interested in polyamory at all. I’ve decided that that’s definitely not a direction that I wanna take my life. I’m definitely doing the mono direction. And given that I have the skills, especially psychologically, with knowing the science, why, why? I mean, if I can literally optimize my relationships to the max, then why wouldn’t I do it? You know what I’m saying? So yeah, that’s what I’m going to do. That’s what I’m all about, right? So figuring it out. Anyway, expert intuition. So expert intuition is very important, because all I need is a fixed point in space time. If you, as a person with introverted sensing, inferior, exist in a single point of space time, all that has happened before will happen again. It’s a very important law. All that has happened before will happen again. It’s metaphysics, right? Where you know history, a history of something, or your history, which gives you the ability to prognosticate the future, and it allows you to see multiple paths, different realities, different choices, allows you to change other people’s fates, even your fate, in some cases, change the fate of other human beings, and give other people different futures. And then it allows you to manipulate the future. It allows you to manipulate metaphysics. So that’s what metaphysics is, the future, right?
Everybody’s like, “Oh, C.S. Joseph, don’t be talking about that metaphysics again. You guys like totally don’t know what you’re talking about. That’s not the true definition of metaphysics.” And I’m like, I really don’t care about the textbook definition of metaphysics, because the textbook definition of metaphysics is inaccurate. Yeah. I’m pragmatic. And I can actually say that it’s not my fault that a bunch of gray hairs in the room voted on the meaning of a word, when the amount of those gray hairs collectively didn’t actually understand the meaning of the word to begin with. So it’s like, okay, fair enough. Yeah, we have a lot of words out there that are misdefined, because as my good ESTJ friend Scott would say, “You know, Chase, just like back in the day, back in the day of Plato, back in the day of Socrates, as the old classics would say, you know, when you try to define something, the further away you get from its true meaning.” And I’m like, yep. That sounds good, bro.
Yeah, so like when it comes to metaphysics, that’s like literally what happened, but yeah. Metaphysics is just being aware of the what if, the great what if, the collective what if, the collective possible. Another reason why it’s hard to differentiate between ENFPs and ENTPs, because both types are aware of your future. Both types are aware of what you want, and what you’re interested in, and what you intend, and they could see you making decisions before you actually really did make a decision. That means that you are predictable around them, and they literally can predict you, because the more experience they have with you, and the more information that they have with you, the more predictable you are. The more you expose yourself to them, the more they can change your future, the more they can change your fate, whether you like it or not. Just be aware of that. But there’s some advantages to that, because the more they know you, the more they understand you, the more experience they have with you, the more that fixed point in space time gets larger, because they have more experience, then they can actually give you the ideal future, the ideal fate. These types can literally bring you what you want, and give you what you want, and they will get it for you, because it delights them to do so. You see what I’m saying? It’s all about giving you a better future, and these types can. Why else do you think Tony Robbins, an ENFP, is a motivational speaker? He’s trying to help people change their fate, get them back on track, give them a better future. He’s manipulating their fate, people, with extrovert intuition hero. That’s who he is. Hello, Gary Vaynerchuk does it all the time. Hello? That’s literally what’s happening.
Hello? Come on. Ah, but now the parent functions. Parent functions are interesting. Both these types, they’re different. The ENTP is all about Ti. We already talked about Ti, if this, then that, whereas, in all, they’re focused on the true/false. If you’re really focused on true/false, chances are, you’re actually an ENTP, whereas the ENFP, it’s like, “No, I don’t feel good about this, all right? This is no good. I’m not gonna spend any time about this.” And it’s all about how they feel, because they’re truly feeling parents, really feeling parents, like, “I feel really good about this,” or “No, I don’t really feel good about this at all.” You know? So then they don’t do it, right, because it’s all about their mood, right? ENFPs make decisions based on their mood, whereas the ENTP does not make decisions based on their mood. They just make decisions based on what’s working right now. Ti, what’s working? Is this working? Yes. Okay, keep doing it. Is this working? No, don’t do it anymore, right? And then they move on to the next thing, right? That’s the ENTP way. Whereas the ENFP is more like, “No, I’m not in the mood, man,” or “Yeah, I am in the mood. Let’s go do it. Let’s go have some fun doing the Owen Cook RSD Motivation thing.” Yeah, Owen Cook. He’s also an ENFP. You guys see a pattern now with all these ENFPs? Are you guys seeing a pattern? Come on, come on. Look at Jim Carrey. Look at Kanye West. Look at Stefan Molyneux. Now those are some ENTPs. Look at those ENTPs, right? I think Leonardo DiCaprio might actually also be an ENTP. I haven’t verified that yet, but we might see him in a upcoming How to Type stream. Yeah. And thank you all for joining us last night for Ozzy night. Even though we didn’t really do Ozzies that much last night, but we got a couple of them in, so that was good. I enjoyed myself. So yeah, ENTPs are about what they think, so you wanna interact with them well? Ask them, “Hey, what do you think about this?” Where if you wanna interact well with an ENFP, you’re like, “Hey, how do you feel about this?”
So if you make decisions based on your mood, chances are, you’re an ENFP, not actually the ENTP. Know the difference, people. Let’s talk about their child functions. ENTPs have Fe Child. ENTPs are insanely caring, and they’re insanely giving, to the point where they over-give, and are at risk of being a doormat, because they just so deeply and badly want to give balloons and candy to literally everybody, and make those people feel good about themselves, make them feel valued and validated, right? It’s like if I have a relationship with a woman, I go up to her, and be like, “I think really highly of you for XYZ reasons, because of these experiences that you gave me, because you made me feel comfortable, because I could put my faith in you, because I could be loyal to you.” But then again, it’s on the responsible, it’s on the woman in that relationship to make sure that there’s a lot of good things in the relationship outweighing the bad things, in terms of experiences that the ENTP is keeping track of. Because guess what? The ENTP and the ENFP, both of these types, their inferior function, or the Si Inferior, literally keep track of everything, everything. They can recall things from 20 years ago in their relationships, doesn’t matter. They keep track of everything. And they know every single person who has screwed them over their entire life. They know their faces, they know their names. Oh yeah. Just in case, why? Because one day, it’ll come where they have the opportunity to deal out some justice, and guess what? The ENP will be happy to oblige, very happy to deal out that justice when the time comes. They don’t ever know that they’ll have that justice. They don’t never know they’ll have that opportunity, but they never forget, just in case. Just in case. That’s right. I never forget. I never forget anyone that screwed me over, just in case. So when I get the opportunity to press the red button on people, I will. Damn right I will. It’s like justice, so. Te Child. Te Child, it’s all about reference points.
If it’s optimized, they’re constantly reading, and giving up resources that Te Child needs, reading over and over and over again, collecting reference points over and over again, very important, very key, very, very, very ideal, because they become like, their IMTJ subconscious gets built. They become the walking Library of Alexandria. They store up, they become these major amazing academics, whereas the ENTP is more like becoming like a knight in shining armor with their ISFJ. They’re not becoming a scholar. They’re becoming like a very capable warrior, essentially, as the ENTP is becoming. So the ENTP is becoming a warrior, a very capable warrior, whereas the ENFP is becoming a very capable scholar, and that’s their approach. The ENFP is all about scholarly. There’s some ENFPs out there who have accomplished so much in their life, and have changed so many lives, because of how scholarly they are. Look at Tony Robbins, for example. Again, ENTPs decide they’re becoming warriors. The best example of a warrior ENTP out there is Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee. Yeah, that’s right. Bruce Lee is a freaking ENTP, guys. You might wanna figure that out. Go type him. Seriously, he’s an ENTP. His entire philosophy, be like water, it’s expert intuition, because do you guys know expert intuition is attached to the element known as water, and introvert intuition is attached to the element known as fire, and extroverted sensing is attached to wind, and introverted sensing is attached to earth? Figure that out, right?
Those are the elements, and the elements are attached to cognitive functions. Yes, we actually carry aspects of the earth within our own very souls. I mean, oh, that kind of matches biblical principles, with mankind being made out of the dirt, made out of the earth. There’s a reason for that. Think about that. Of course, then again, if you wanna even go deeper with extrabiblical lore, from way back in the day in ancient times, you could argue that the angels are actually made out of fire and wind. Very interesting. Or human beings are made out of earth and water. Very interesting, right? So keep those things in mind. Anyway. So yeah, Te Child’s all about reference points. It’s all about what other people are thinking, whereas the ENTP is all about what other people are feeling. If you’re an ENTP, chances are you’re making people feel better. You’re making people feel good about themselves. Pretty awesome. Keep doing that. You’re a very caring individual, whereas the ENFP, they’re more charitable, they like receiving gifts themselves, like being given things, and they can be giving a response, but usually they’re not as giving, whereas the ENTP is very giving. So it’s just kind of like back and forth. But if an ENTP gives you something, react positively to it, be thankful for it. If you’re not thankful, then the ENTP is gonna learn that.
“Well, why give this person gifts, if they’re not gonna be thankful? I’m not gonna get recognition for it. So why bother?” It’s like a complete waste of time. You know what I’m saying? So watch out for those wastes of time situations. ENFP, it’s a little bit different. And ENFPs, also, they grow more intelligent when they’re around intelligent people, ’cause their Te Child latches on to the intelligence of other people, and absorbs all those people’s thinking into them. And then they create the system where they box all those thoughts together. And they’re able to use all those reference points, all that reference material that they’re stored within themselves, and then their introverted sensing, and then they become these amazing academics and scholars, to the point where they could change the world. And as much as an ENTP could change the world with their designs, with their visions, with the directions they’re going, like Bruce Lee and Steve Jobs. Yes. Steve jobs is an ENTP. Oh my gosh. Why do I need to keep talking about that? Seriously. So be aware of that. Don’t forget Si Inferior. Si Inferior makes them very loyal, loyal to a fault. So loyal that even if they have casual sex, and God forbid these two types have casual sex, because then they become unfairly loyal to the person they have sex with. And that person may not be as obsessed to them. That person may not be loyal to them. But guess what?
They’re hooked. The Si Inferior is addicted. They get addicted to people, and when they get addicted, they get screwed. Stockholm syndrome, folks. That’s what happens. That’s why, if you’re an EMP, you probably shouldn’t be having casual sex, bad idea, real bad idea, because you’re gonna get screwed. You’re gonna get real screwed real quick. Let me tell you. We could even wake up one day. Your house is destroyed, your bank account’s drained, and you have absolutely no idea what’s going on. It’s like literally the entire Samson and Delilah story all over again, all because of that Si Inferior addiction. That’s a major, major problem. I wonder if Samson, from Samson and Delilah, I mean, he kind of looks ESTP-ish, but maybe he was actually ENFP all along, Conor McGregor style, because guess what? Conor McGregor is also an ENFP, you know what I’m saying? So think about that. Right? Anyway, Si Inferior, they’re all about their comfort, these two types, they’re all about, they’re focused on their comfort. They’re focused on what makes them safe and comfy, warm. It’s kind of like they value that over their outward appearance, ’cause they lack extroverted sensing entirely.
And that could be a huge deal for these two types, right? Extroverted sensing is what people utilize to give them a very nice outward appearance. These two types are kind of at risk of having poor fashion sense, especially ENTP, because at least the ENFP has Te Child. The Te Child can figure out real quick, a lot faster than the ENTP, as to what’s acceptable from a clothing situation, and what’s not. And they end up having to make some serious changes as a result. Yeah, that’s a problem, right? So be aware of that. They really need the opportunity to be able to gain some fashion sense, at least the MTPs do. I mean, I do. I need fashion sense bad. Now, luckily I have, recently, someone in my life who’s decided to take it upon themselves to actually make sure that I have a better fashion situation. The previous one before that didn’t work out. And the previous one before that didn’t work out either, but I’m getting some semblance of formal training, because they have like a color palette swatch thing, and have already shown me plenty of different outfits and whatnot. So I just need to get them classified by situation, get a nice little spreadsheet going, and actually keep track of that stuff, so I’m not being terrible when I’m on camera, because, I mean, I’m being terrible right now. I’m still wearing clothes on me that somewhat relatively fit on me when I was 25 pounds heavier. So just to make everyone aware of that for some reason. I have no idea why, but fair enough. So yeah, those are the two egos, and that’s the difference between the ENTP and ENFP. Let’s look at their shadow function. So both of them have Ni Nemesis, which means both of them are worried about their own future, worried that because of their own future, they will essentially lose their own future. Oh, and Si Inferior also makes them really, really uncomfortable in their bodies, which means ENTPs and ENFPs, because they’re so aware of the what if with their Ne Heroes, these two types, they have some serious hypochondriac issues.
I’m like the worst hypochondriac I know, although I’ve gotten so good at being a hypochondriac, and so good at being able to sense my own body through Si Inferior when I’m aspiring, that I’ve actually been able to have the opportunity, or the chance, to predict actual maladies that are happening to me, so that I can walk into the ER, if I go in the ER, and tell the ER tech exactly what’s wrong with me, and then they can go check it, verify it. And sure enough, that is what’s wrong with me. And then they’re able to take action. That’s actually literally what happened the last time I went to the hospital. I walked in, told them exactly what was wrong with me, they did a scan just to confirm. Sure enough, it was there. Then they took action. Nice and quick, right? Because guess what? We’re both movement types. Movement types need progress, guys, because it’s starter type interaction style. Progress is everything. We are developing, as ENPs, the master process, right? The master process that we use to solve every one of our problems, it’s all about having the master process, whereas control types, from an interaction style basis, they’re actually more focused on outcomes. So they have an individual process per outcome that they want to achieve. And that’s why they’re slower, because they have to develop a system or a process for each outcome that they’re looking for. That’s how controlled types do it. And that’s why it takes them longer, but it can give them more accuracy and success longer, whereas ENPs, however, very movement oriented.
They have this one master process that supposedly works for everything, and then that allows them to be super quick with how they do things. Okay. Fair enough. So, anyway, that being said, another difference between the two of them is that ISFJ’s subconscious, we already talked about, is becoming the warrior. ISTJ’s subconscious is becoming a great scholar. So be aware of those differences. If one is more scholarly than the other, chances are, they’re the ENFP. If one’s more warrior-oriented, more duty and honor-oriented, that’s definitely an ENTP. So look at it from the Bruce Lee model, as I said, previously. All about safety and protection, and being that knight in shining armor, because the ENTP ego, when it first starts out, it’s more like a thief or a scout or a rogue. That’s what it does. And then over time, as it matures, as it grows, it’s no longer that thief on the street. It actually becomes a great knight of a noble house in the kingdom, et cetera. That’s kind of the ENTP way. That’s the ENTP path to growth, right? So nemesis functions, they’re both very worried about their own future. They worry that they’re gonna die young. They worry that tomorrow is not gonna be okay for them. And that’s why they use their expert intuition hero to intertwine everybody else’s fate with their own fate, so that if those people fail, well, then the ENPs fail. But if those people succeed, then the ENPs succeed, or if the ENP succeeds because of Ni Nemesis, then everyone else that is intertwined with them, they also will succeed. That’s what makes them really good CEOs, for example. These two types are capable of being CEOs. I mean, you saw it with Steve Jobs, for example. We see it with Tony Robbins. They’re very capable of being CEOs, and they definitely can go all the way as a result of that, but not like a traditional corporate business structure. Not really. It’s not really a priority for them, but yeah.
Ni Nemesis, they’re both worried about their own future, and that’s why they intertwine, and their own fate, and that’s why they intertwine everyone else’s futures, and everyone else’s intentions, everyone else’s dreams, everyone else’s aspirations in with their own, because from their point of view, if I can get you what you want, you’re gonna get me what I want, right? Then again, that’s the risk of a covert contract. So that’s why that needs to be an overt contract, so that the ENPs are actually explaining this to people. You helped me out. I will help you out. And they have to make sure that they don’t leave anyone behind, and they do not abandon anyone behind to do that. Although technically, between the two types, ENFPs are more likely to leave people behind than ENTPs are in terms of abandonment. And that’s strictly as a result of Fi Parent’s selfishness. But as long as the Si Inferior is loyal, and as long as the other people that are with the ENP or the ENFP at that particular moment in time, or within those moments in time, or the events leading up to that moment in time, that they have gone out of their way to give the ENFP a really good experience consistently, and kept the ENFP comfortable as a result. And then based on that, the ENFP will remember all of the good things that that person has done for them, and stay loyal to them, and make sure that that person is not abandoned moving forward, very important. So now their critic functions, and where their wisdom exists is completely different. ENTPs, they are very critical towards statistics, or information, or data, or reference points, very critical.
They’re very critical of input. And to receive proper input from someone is very, very interesting and very difficult. I’ve actually noticed one of the bad patterns, or bad habits I’ve had in my life is that I’ve surrounded myself with a lot of NFs and idealists in my life, or people who are not Te users, or at least not people who were Te Parents or Te Hero. And that was a very irresponsible decision on my part, because, quite frankly, I need to be in relationships with those people. I need more Te input in my life, and Te input’s like the only way that I’m going to be successful. It’s just really hard sometimes, because Te Parents and Heroes just aren’t really readily available, because they’re so rare, especially among women, right? But that can be an issue, right? So what do I do for that? Well, I just gotta find some Te, because here’s the difference, both these two types, if you look at the race between the tortoise and the hare, both these two types are tortoises, torti. These are tortoises, plural, and they’re really slow. They’ll eventually get through to the end, but they have to play this Si Inferior game of trial and error on literally everything, because if they’ve never done something before, they’re going to fail, so they have to fail at something a thousand times before they finally have success with it. And it can cost them a lot of time, a lot of resources, it can be really annoying. It can be a huge issue, and they know it, but you come along and you give me someone with Te input, or for them, give them Fe input. It’s not really a Fe output technically, if we’re gonna be real accurate to the model, that input is a really big deal.
That input really helps, because that input, it basically gives the tortoise rabbit legs, and they’re actually able to run faster, and get to where they’re going in their life, and with what they intend to do in their lives, or where they’re going, et cetera. It’s very useful to them. It can actually make them faster in the race of life, basically. And then the hare can actually join in with the tortoise, and actually gain in that way. And the tortoise, when they come up on a river, the tortoise can swim across, and the hare can sit on top of the tortoise, and it’s good to go. They work together. That’s the real moral of the story during “The Tortoise and the Hare.” Other than that, hard work always beats talent, ’cause that’s right. And let me tell you something, these two types definitely lack talent very much, especially compared to NJs. NJs have all the talent in the world, but these types, yeah, we’re lacking some serious talent, but we could beat talent with hard work. That’s the point. Now, Te Critic, very, very critical statistics, very critical of what other people think. ENTPs are at risk of walking around, just assuming other people are stupid by default, and not really being willing to listen to other people, listen and taking input and taking criticism. I take criticism all the time. I was actually just emailed a bunch of criticism just now, or my executive team criticized me earlier about how I’m doing my videos, et cetera. I need criticism, because without criticism, I’m not gonna be successful. Without criticism, I’m not gonna be able to keep producing.
Criticism is everything to me. I need to be criticized. I need to be held into the fire consistently so that I do not become arrogant or conceited, and that I continue to produce. Very, very important for Te Critic. Te Critic also needs to understand that in order for me to gain wisdom, I have to keep reading, very important. Fe Critic is a little bit different. Fe Critic is kind of like where guilt can exist for an ENFP. They get guilted into things. They don’t like being unfairly guilted into things. They feel like they’re being manipulated when they’re being forced to give something to somebody that they don’t wanna give, for example, and that includes time, or money, or effort, or an actual gift of some kind, who knows? And they really hate that covert contract of giving, ’cause it’s like, “Oh, I’m very responsible with how I feel and how I handle my charity. These people don’t deserve it. I don’t feel good about this. I’m not gonna do this. I don’t feel good about this.” It’s all about how they feel. It’s not about what they think, right? So that could be an issue. Also, very critical towards other people’s value systems. Why is that? Well, because ENFPs are very responsible with how they feel about things, very responsible with their sense of morals. And they’re looking at other people being very critique-y about other people’s morals. And they’re like, “Wow, a lot of those people have loose morals. I’m not like those people. I’m not gonna behave like them.” So they, guess what? In their youth, they automatically assume people around them are just bad, and ENFPs just automatically assume that they’re better than everybody else. It’s really annoying. It makes you wanna punch them, doesn’t it? But yeah, that could be an issue.
Well, ENTP is the same kind of thing. The arrogance of Ti comes in. They criticize everyone else. In their youth, they assume everyone else is stupid around them, and they only think that they themselves are the smartest person around. That’s it. When you hear an ENTP talk about how somebody else is smarter than them, you might wanna listen to them, because that’s an ENTP who has humility, That’s an ENTP who’s open to criticism. That’s an ENTP who is going places. That’s important. If you’re dating an ENTP, and they’re not doing that, run, because the Ti Parent arrogance is just terrible. You don’t want that in your life. Get rid of it. You know what I’m saying? So those are the critic functions. Trickster functions, the ENTP is completely unaware, completely unaware of how they feel. They have no sense of morals whatsoever. Don’t ask an ENTP to have moral principles. Good luck. That’s not gonna happen. They’re not gonna behave morally. Again, they’re just focused on what’s doing what works. They don’t care about doing the right thing. And they’re not aware. And this makes them very socially awkward, and albeit creepy, because people just can’t handle ENTPs in this way, because they’re so dark and mysterious. And they look like, or dress like a mafia hitman. That’s what I do all the time. So not ideal. Right? It’s very off-putting, it puts people off. It’s not something that people appreciate or can get behind. Right? So just be aware of that.
That is a huge risk. And then the ENFP, they have Ti Trickster, which means from their point of view, anything can be true. Just like with the ENTP, anything can be good or bad. It doesn’t matter. Anything can be good or bad. That’s so subjective. Whereas the ENFPs, well, anything can be true or false. There’s no such thing as absolute truth. Anything can be subjective, but there is absolute good. Yeah, watching these two argue absolute good and absolute truth is a nightmare. It’s a complete waste of time. Don’t do it, seriously, don’t do it. From my point of view, though, yes, there is absolute truth, but there is also absolute good. It does exist. It just has to, It has to exist, logically speaking. If the absolute truth does exist, then so also does absolute good. I don’t know what it is. I don’t know how to find it, but just using logic alone, I have no choice but to believe it exists. Remember, ENFPs are all about their beliefs. They’re not about what’s true or false, because from their point of view, anything can be true or false. It’s subjective, you know? So just be aware of that. There’s a lot of different things that could be a little confusing on that front, but that’s why. And their demon functions. Oh yeah. Se Demon, my favorite demon. My demon. Not ideal, but yeah.
So Se Demon is pretty violent. It’s extremely spiteful, very spiteful. When ESTP’s superego comes out with the ENFP, wow. I remember this ENFP friend of mine telling me about how he went to go collect a debt from this guy, because he had gotten drugs from him one time, and he went into this guy’s house, trying to collect a debt from him, tried to get the money out of him. And he’s like, “No, I don’t have it.” So what he did is, the ENFP, he went into a superego with his ESTP superego, and literally beat the crap out of that guy in front of his own child, basically left him bloody on the floor in the kitchen afterwards. Wow, hit him really seriously, and that’s when this ENFP friend of mine who was like super mega depraved, and he hadn’t gone to federal yet. Luckily he’s out since then, and got a new life, and a new lease on life, basically, as he would say. “I turned over a new leaf.” I don’t know how many times I’ve heard an ENFP say they turned over a new leaf. For some reason, that’s the thing. It’s kinda like that Italian scene in New York City, right? There’s a lot of ENFPs that come out of that, but yeah, just be aware of that. Se Demon, it’s very spiteful. It hates reality. It wants to press the big red button on reality and end all of reality, because from the ENP point of view, what is real is crap. It’s absolute crap. And that’s why it’s very, very, very important that they find something that they can put their faith into, that they find something that they can be loyal to. Without that, they’re gonna have a really hard time. It’s really hard for these two types to become emotionally centered, especially as men in this society. As women, it’s not as big of a deal, but men, it’s hard for them to become emotionally centered, because for some reason, these two types just need to have some kind of thing to put their faith into, because Ni Nemesis is there, which ends up giving them complete and utter despair if they don’t have their Si Inferior in the way, putting their faith into something. And when that something turns out to be a lie that they put their faith into, it leads to despair, which could be a huge issue for them, you know?
And that’s why they make decisions quickly between it, so that if there’s that one thing that they have, that they’re putting their faith into, but it doesn’t work anymore, they have to move quickly to replace it. So they’re always putting their faith in something, which can lead them open to attack. These two types can be easily taken advantage of. These two types can be easily socially engineered, because of just preying upon the thing that they put their faith into. Just like I said, I had a social engineering ENTP. I was taken advantage of by a preacher once. They got a lot of money out of me that I gave to the church, which also basically contributed to destroying my marriage. I was extremely irresponsible. I’ll never do that again. Really hard lesson learned. Remember, Si Inferior trial and erroring everything in life, because guess what? These two types, we learn from our own mistakes. We do not learn from others’ mistakes. That’s the problem, because we have Se Demon. Se Demon is not aware of what other people are experiencing. Se Demon is not aware of how we come off. We don’t care. It is not our job to make other people comfortable, because Se Demon makes everybody uncomfortable. That’s why we come off as very creepy, especially in bar situations when we’re initiating with people. The thing is, is that people need to be comfortable in initiating with us, because if they initiate with us, then we’ll open up, and our walls come down, and then it’s great, right? Especially like when a woman initiates to Ne Hero, it really, really makes the ENP very comfortable. So women, you wanna find herself an ENP man, because you’re super compatible, then go for it.
Don’t be afraid to initiate. Use your introvert intuition and initiate with them. They’ll appreciate it. And then they’ll return it back to you in kind. These two types have more feminine energy than masculine energy, specifically because they’re ENPs. It’s not about what’s masculine or feminine, per se, based on gender. It’s just how the personality goes, but then again, they’re built for NJ women who are typically with more masculine energy. So maybe they shouldn’t be so afraid of initiating for once, right? That’s how it works. Although I just realized, if you’re in a golden pair, there’s so much freedom within the golden pair that all roles and responsibilities could be utilized by either person who’s in the golden pair relationship, so just be aware of that as well. As we’re driving around here and not crashing on, what road am I on? Mission Boulevard, nice. My favorite road. So yeah, so with super egos, when they’re trying to distort reality, the ENTP one’s a little bit different. That superego is more about being spiteful, and just, some men just wanna see the world burn. That’s the ESFP demon way of doing things. Whereas the ESTP way is like, “Wow, this world is weak. I don’t wanna be in such a weak world. I’m going to destroy it.” And both these types take it differently. But the whole point is, is by destroying reality, a new reality can be made. A new reality can be imagined. And then from that new reality, guess what? We have a better life. It allows a new life to grow.
So these two types really take seriously the power of the phoenix, where you’re literally burning everything to the ground so that new life can grow and then rise from the ashes, right? And that’s how these two types do it. They’re starter types. They start something, “Oh, this thing’s not working. Burn it down,” and then move on to the next thing. “Oh, this is not working, burn it down.” Move on to the next thing, “Oh, it’s working. Yeah. I don’t have to burn it down! Something in reality that actually works! I could keep it. Yay!” That’s what they do. That’s what these two types do. That’s why it’s important to both these two types, right? So, something to be aware of, something that is important. I’m actually gonna go this way, because I don’t know why I went this way, and I shouldn’t have, but oh, well. So yeah. I think that’s everything. Yeah, I think I covered everything on these two types. So just remember, they have the same interaction style. They have the same perception functions, which can make it difficult, and both these two types, they see the world through the same eyes, but they make decisions about it differently. That is the key. That is the point. So be aware of that. Be aware of that issue, be aware of that risk. And then you’ll be able to spot the differences between ENTP and ENFPs.
