How do you study as an ENTP? Before I can answer, please consider subscribing the channel so I can discover what it is to have feelings. And hit the alert bell so that you can get notified when I go live. That being said, what’s up ego hackers, I’m CS Joseph. And I’m here to answer your questions on the Four Sides of the Mind, Jungian Analytical Psychology, et cetera. And the source of today’s question is none other than Quora as usual because that’s just what I do apparently is Quora but I think I’ll actually be doing some YouTube comments with specific questions directly from the you guys in the near future as well. So let’s take a look. Alright. How do you study as an ENTP? We got Calvin Louis here who seems to have provided the best answer. He claims that he is a ENTP and I’m just gonna skip a lot of the fluff. He says that ENTPs hate learning from a standardized template, that’s not true. Sometimes ENTPs want things pre-packaged and easy to digest. They can just move on with their lives and keep going. So I don’t exactly agree with that, but yes constantly full of ideas. I agree with him there as well, but he makes some individual bullet points, which I really wanna cover. He’s saying less is more, focus on the message that the content is trying to present the meaning and the purpose not on the details. I mean, yes that’s kind of true from an extroverted intuition hero standpoint, but it’s not necessarily true from a Ti parent standpoint. Ti parent needs to get into the details. I guess it really depends where you are in your cognitive development at that point in time. Form the skeleton. Form a network or mind map of all of the chapters you are reading. This is to build the foundation at which you build to input your details. Absolutely, that’s correct. I use a program called mind node. It’s an Apple only product, I paid for it. It’s amazing. I’ve been made fun of using mind maps recently, but when you’re at Ti user mind mapping is extremely important. And my former ISTP boss he taught me about that, which was really fantastic. Fill in the details once you know what’s going on in a general sense so you can start filling in the details to clear all your doubts. We do have a doubt factor in us. That’s from our Ni nemesis, just like Si nemesis also provides doubt. And you can say the nemesis function is a person’s source of doubt as it were, really important to understand that. And yeah, it’s important within that mind map, present the details and then produce your own theory, ENTPs are notorious for theory crafting. Well, yeah I mean Bruce Lee did that. He’s studied all of the different martial arts in the world and then created his own system Jeet Kune Do and it’s based on that so yeah, I agree. He says experiment. We’re all different so it’s important to not confine yourself. Getting guidance is necessary but don’t be restrained by it. Again that’s like almost directly out of Bruce Lee’s philosophy. And ENTPs are notorious for having to trial and error basically about everything in their entire life and experiment with everything in their life. So yeah, I agree with how this is so far so good. And then he’s like the above is studying content alone. Let’s move on to enhancing your environment. This is very true. An ENTP in order to actually be able to learn properly, you need to be in the proper environment with which you can learn. So attention bursts don’t attempt to stay in the same place or position for hours, agreed. Diversify, by that I mean study various topics about the same subject. Yes. Well, yeah because you can like not get bored, but the other thing is it goes beyond that actually. You wanna diversify, it doesn’t have to be like the same subject. You could actually have multiple subjects and doing one topic per subject basically going at the same time so you don’t get bored. I tell ENTPs when you’re learning go out of your way to multitask as much as possible because through multitasking, you’ll actually be able to get things done. If you are focused on one thing that you’re engaging your INTJ shadow then you’re not gonna learn as much. So now if you are focusing on one subject, then absolutely do as he suggests and diversify amongst multiple topics within that subject. Yes, I agree with that. So mix theory and applications. ENTPs want to make logical sense, studying for the sake of it will make them cringe. So seek to find real life application, AKA case studies. Yes, without practical application, the theory is not going to get ENTPs anywhere. And prepare a getaway stress reliever. ENTPs always have an out. They always provide themselves an out and yes, we get bored really easy. And avoid time-wasters. Yeah, excessive watching of TV, series, videos or any kind of entertainment that doesn’t provide you growth and learning will cause you to waste precious time. Gary Vaynerchuk actually talks about this. And so also does Owen Cook also known as RSD Tyler, talking about how like, those things are like Medusa. They will turn you to stone, that’s a direct quote from Owen Cook. Hope this helps he says, yes it was an excellent answer. Risky Saiful NTP was my only comfortable state, now I’m doing NTJ-ing. What, okay. What, remember when dealing with MBTI always back to cognitive function, please check your spelling. Maybe I don’t know. Maybe English is not his first language. That’s what it is so it’s all good. Everyone has all eight function but everyone has to pick their two favorites. No that’s not true. I’m not going to bother reading that. Luciana Zabini, a tutor study study. What does this study you speak of? In all honesty I don’t tend to study from just completing assignments to get the credit. Okay. Okay that’s not really that useful. All right. Ben Sisson, CTO of a medium enterprise working on going big, 2012 to present. The nontechnical version by saying stupid stuff and getting smacked down by doing crazy things and seeing what happens by testing, poking and prodding everything we were told not to unless a satisfactory explanation is given, true. By immaculate conception of the bizarre, stuff that just pops in your head. And the most effectively I found by trying to explain things to others. When I do this, I talk myself off the edge of a cliff and realize what I don’t know, well said. I think Socrates and you have a lot in common, Mr. Ben Sissons. At least yeah, Ariah, irrelevant and specific credential to get more views, whatever. A foolproof of ways to focus on top of for hours to essentially master it to become personally invested and fascinated by it. That sounds very INTJ actually. The problem, at least for me is that personal investment on a topic lies in inverse proportion of the real life importance of actually mastering the said topic, very INTJ. I mean, you must have Fi child. We’ve talked about importance in that context. For example, I’ve been known to go through phases where for example, on my own I’ll study and learn dates, names, historical markers, okay T E T E T E, et cetera, for the entire British Plantagenet line or monitoring days. And when I actually had to study stuff for history class for tests, just forget about it. Just no. Okay. Again, that’s just lack of self discipline from an INTJ point of view, Elisha you’re an INTJ. You’re not an ENTP. So take on multiple projects at a time. Someone’s talking about procrastinating, look another INTJ right here. And okay. Oh and then Joe Callender, Myers Briggs is definitely overrated. In my experience as an INTJ, so he says MBTI is overrated. But then he says as an INTJ, the only real thing is for team building and knowing whether or not you’re an introvert or an extrovert, ie thinker, learner versus doing politician okay. The best learning theory is cognitive load theory. You can Google it, but in a nutshell, it means to start at your given level of expertise, focus on small tidbits that get progressively harder and practice things often 2,000 times until they become automatic. Okay. How INTJ of you. So apparently there are a lot of mistypes in this Quora article that are not actually providing the answers that we’re looking for. Now, my turn. So how do you study as an ENTP? There’s actually a lot of different ways to do it, but quite frankly the number one way to do it is a form of multitasking. So for me I use these for actually I have these all the time, mostly I’d prefer to get the wireless ones. That’d be nice, but these actually just fit on my ear and they stay on my ear just fine. And they aren’t gonna fall off because I always have them falling off all the time. And it’s really annoying. But I just go to I have my audible account, audible.com, which if you want a free audible, you can go to csjoseph.live/reading, get the free audible account there and you get a free book to go along with it. But from an audible.com standpoint, wireless headphones, get my audio books going. And then I just start doing menial tasks around the house because then it’s like, okay yeah I’m not wasting my time now. I’ll vacuum, take out the trash, I’ll even cook. I’ll even prepare food, I’ll do the laundry. I will fold laundry. I’m all over the place in that sense. And it all comes down to just, you know, having self-respect for myself, taking care of myself. But I always have the audio book going at all times, especially like when I used to live alone, the audio books were going at all times. Oftentimes I would even reread some of the same books that I did previously with audible. And I just go through it back to back to back. And that’s the fastest way to study as an ENTP based on my personal experience. However, again you have to bring it to an area of multitasking. Another thing that is really, really absolutely necessary. If you find yourself in a situation where you have to have focus, it requires a cognitive transition into Ni nemesis. And as a result, it’s hard. It’s really hard to do. So you have to completely eliminate distractions. This is why ENTPs ended up having this reputation of being an introvert. You have to get to a point where you shut your door to the office and you forbid anyone from bothering you like all day, if necessary. So you can actually focus on getting some tasks done. Also make sure you understand mind mapping technology, get Evernote, that software as well. It helps you keep a track of all of your notes, et cetera, really, really important. And having mind mapping also helps you collect all of your thoughts. And if you mind map what you’re reading or while you’re reading, it can also help you retain that much more and learn a lot more. And this is how you’re able to use your extroverted thinking critic, to keep track of data that you have and ideas that you have through mind mapping technology. And then through multitasking, you’re able to learn and actually make it a part of your introverted sensing. So that way you have the best reading comprehension and everything that you’re doing, et cetera. So anyway, that is how I study as an ENTP plus the first post of this video.
