Transcript:

Chase: Hey guys, it’s Chase with csjoseph.life. Today we are enjoying a very nice rainstorm here in Northern California and today we’re gonna be talking about another one of the personality profiles for our 16 personality series. The series we’ve covered … Six of the sixteen types, and we’re going to be working on the seventh one now, which is another member of the starter types, the formative initiating movement types. This particular type is near and dear to my heart because … Well, it’s my type. It’s actually mine. So today, we’re gonna be looking at the ENTP, also known as the extraverted intuitive thinking perceiver, also known as the visionary. Some people call it the originator, which is actually pretty true because the ENTP is very original in a lot of things and is constantly focused on innovation. Some people call the ENTP the innovator, which I would say is pretty accurate. I mean, I’m always innovating or coming up with new ways of doing things, new ways of thinking which requires a lot of free thinking.

Chase: I mean, the ultimate nightmare of the ENTP is going into coma and then waking up realizing it’s 20 years later and society has changed so much that everyone’s thoughts are monitored by police for example and there’s no such thing as free thinking anymore, to the point where any ENTP or even in some cases ESTPs are just shot on site because they have rebellious thoughts for example. It’s because of our Te critic, it just has to challenge all the boundaries and all the rules.

Chase: Anyway, I have my trusty whiteboard here. Little mini whiteboard for everyone to see. Hopefully we can actually see it … Yes we can, awesome. So the ENTP. So it’s an intellectual so I’m always future thinking for example. It’s a starter type, visionary, informative initiating movement as we just said. Focused all about progress. I really don’t care about things being under control. I can definitely operate in total chaos and still meet objectives and goals. As long as I have progress, as long as I’m moving and I can measure that progress or at least see that there is progress happening as an ENTP doesn’t bother me. Bring on the chaos. In fact, I’ll even go out of my way to inject chaos in situations that I believe are stagnant in order to get progress going, in order to get movement going. Yeah, that causes a lot of trouble between me and my peers, or my peers and I, but at the end of the day it doesn’t matter.

Chase: Why? Well, because to ENTPs, the ends justify the means. It always does for us. We’re willing to do the things that people don’t really want to do in order to reach goals and it could be our personal goals or it could be the goals of the organization we work for, goals of the family, goals of the community, goals of the church, the parish, mosque, whatever. Whatever those goals are, we’re willing to break the rules, even the social rules, to make that happens. Wow, this rainstorm is pretty crazy.

Chase: Anyway, such is the way of the ENTP. We have the ENTP ego. So extraverted intuition hero, Ne hero is my hero function. So what is that like? That’s basically the ENTP‘s ability to tap into the metaphysical realm. We’re aware of metaphysics, we’re not really aware of physics so much, which means one of our weaknesses is that we really can’t take a hammer to a nail and a famous ENTP known as Steve Jobs for example, there’s a great film starting Michael Fassbender about Steve Jobs and there’s a great scene in there where … I think it’s Seth Rogan playing Steve Wozniak accusing Jobs of never being able to take a hammer to a nail for example. Well that’s true. I mean, don’t expect me to build a fricking house. I’m just not gonna do it. See, I’m gonna hire someone else to do it. “Oh, but that makes you less of a man because you can’t take a hammer to a nail.” No, I mean if I’m making money in other ways and paying someone else to do it, that’s known as an economy, why should I be expected to do everything myself?

Chase: At least I can change my own oil which most man-children out there can’t even remotely do that. Of course that came from the fact that my INFJ uncle basically looked at me one day and said, “Hey, if you have a penis in this family, you are expected to change your own oil. Get your ass in the shop.” That’s how I learned. So very Se inferior to Si inferior experience if you know what I mean.

Chase: So extraverted intuition hero, it gives me basically the ability to have prescience or precognition. I can anticipate things before they happen. Why? Well, because extraverted intuition follows the first law of time, which is all that has happened before will happen again. They talked about it a lot in Battlestar Galactica. In my opinion, it’s like law zero of quantum mechanics because law one is as if you observe a probability, you innately make it more likely that that probability will come true. So if I’ve experienced something in the past, I can anticipate when it’s going to happen again. That’s basically how prescience works. It’s not just like some magical, “Ooh, I instantly know the future.” No no no. See, I have to have past experience with Si inferior to be able to accurately anticipate the future. Not only that, it doesn’t necessarily to have to be an experience that I have. If I gain a lot of experience by reading a whole bunch of books, knowing history, and I just really fill my Si longterm memory hard drive in my head, then that even further increases my ability to predict the future.

Chase: The same thing goes with ENFPs, they both have that ability. Why? Well, because ENPs are known as the pathfinder types, because extraverted intuition hero is obsessed with finding the right path, and it does this by knowing all paths forward. I mean, there’s times there’s been super conflicts in my life. For example, when I knew that I would have to mentally duke it out with somebody else and the stakes were very high, like homelessness is on the table for one of my very close friends, one of my lovers actually, and she was looking at homeless and I had to go to bat with her, with her family. I had to literally on the way driving to her parents’ house to have that conversation, I literally in my mind thought of every single possible future that could take place before that conversation and I developed strategies for each one of those futures that I may encounter. Ahead of time, before I even arrived, I had an entire game plan, and I did it logically with my Ti parent following logic. So if her mother did this, this is how I would behave. If her stepfather did this, this is what I do in response. One of those futures came true and I just started playing my game. I started playing each strategy, each contingency for everything that they did.

Chase: ENTPs are all about contingency plans. They always have a contingency plan. The way that we speak is like, we always have an out, just in case. Just in case. That why? Well, Fe child doesn’t like feeling guilty for letting people down, so it always has an out in conversation or responsibility to dip out. ENTPs are notorious for dipping out, even at the last minute. Why? Well, it’s because you’re either trying to avoid having the personal responsibility with that situation, or we’re perceiving that it’s just not safe, or we’re aware of a possible future that an unsafe situation could manifest. Like there’s times when I went to a bar and I’m like, “Well, a bar fight would come up, what would I do? Well, I go out this exit when this happens and if it’s over in this location I go out that exit over there.” I’m always aware of those possibilities. That’s what extraverted intuition is all about, being aware of the constant collective what if. What if this happens? What if this happens? What if this happens? What if this happens? What if this happens? What do I do? What if this … So, what if this happens? What do I do? What if this happens? What do I do? If this happens, I do this, or if I see this coming, I’m going to tell you what I think about it so you change your value system on that.

Chase: That’s basically what happens. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen people in their lives and I’ve interrupted their lives, randomly started talking to them, given them a little bit piece of knowledge or wisdom or something, just guide their path slightly because I could see their future with extraverted intuition hero. Extraverted intuition is all about looking into the will of other people. It’s aware of what other people want, what other people are going to do before they do it, their desires, their future. I could literally see the future of other people and I just say that one thing that kind of course corrects their future a little bit if they listen to me and then they end up having a better life. I don’t know how many times I’ve had that conversation with people where I’ve just said, “Hey, if you do this, you’ll get this.” Then they’ll do it and like two years later, they’re thanking me for it.

Chase: So for example, I actually have a really good example of that. There is this guy. He was 20, 25, 26 years old, I was talking to him. I don’t even know why, but he got involved with a 16-year-old once time and they were having a relationship, it hadn’t gotten physical yet, but it was pretty close to getting to that, and he wanted to go to her mom and talk to her about it and see if anything can happen. I’m like, “Dude. You’re a moron.” I ripped him [inaudible 00:10:27] and I’m just like, “Are you kidding me? Dude, she’s underage. In most states that’s statutory rape. Are you prepared to go to jail?” “Well, it’s not like that, we’re really in love,” and I’m like, “Dude, she’s 16. She doesn’t even know that.”

Chase: So what I did was I accused him of being incapable of comprehending what manhood even means, gave him some tips on it, and he immediately stopped his behavior. Turns out, six months later, no, eight months later, he contacts me out of random. I never thought I’d even see the guy again but somehow he gets ahold of me and then he’s like, “Oh hey. Yeah, I’m happily engaged now. We’re getting married. I got a house, I got a very nice new job. Everything’s working out for me all thanks to your advice.” It’s just like, “What? Really? That was the thing?”

Chase: Why do ENTPs do this? Well, the answer is Fe child. Extraverted feeling child causes ENTPs to change people’s values in such a way that gives them better lives. I really am aware of how other people feel. ENTPs get a bad rap. We’re told that we’re like these big assholes that don’t really care, et cetera. That’s not really true. We actually do care, “Oh, but you’re too harsh with your Ti parent. You’re too harsh and you’re abusive.” No, I’m sorry guys. The truth is harsh. Get over it. I’m going to tell the truth and I don’t care how you feel about it. I have to tell you the exact truth as it is. Why? So you can grow up. People tell me the hard truth all the time and then I grow up. So people tell me the harsh truth all the time and my Te critic, so I have to make changes with my Ti parent and immediately change my behavior. I’m not gonna hold onto some stupid belief system or some dogma that I grew up with and have that dominate my life. I’m not gonna do that. That’s dumb. People do that all the time. I’m not gonna do that because what’s true? What’s actually true or false?

Chase: That’s what matters to an ENTP. If it’s not true, then why am I behaving that way? If I haven’t discovered that it’s true for myself, then why am I adhering to this belief system or this way of doing things or this rule or this process or this routine. I don’t care. Why? Because it’s not based in truth. “But it makes people feel good.” I’m like, “Okay, well, that’s nice but … So you want everyone to live a lie?” No, I can’t live a lie. See ENTPs, we can’t live a lie. ENTPs cannot live a lie. That’s a serious problem because you know what’s funny about that? ENTP‘s virtue is sincerity, we are deadly sincere. Almost too sincere by some people’s standards because of our harsh Ti parent. ESTPs have a similar bad rap in that way because they have Ti parent as well and they’re accused of being harsh all the time. It’s not about that. We’re trying to help people. We tear them down so they can be built up again. We’re going to burn the forest down so that their new life can come and the only way to do that is to breathe fire with our Ti parents, to breathe fire of truth because truth burns like fire. It’s like hellfire. It’s burning the lies away, right?

Chase: That’s what Ti parent does. We exist to burn the lies away. We exist to cause other people to become diamonds. How are diamonds created? Well, diamonds are the most precious substance on the earth, right? They’re also inherently flawed. Kind of like human beings, and what makes a diamond better? What creates a diamond? Pressure, heat, pain, suffering, truth, right? That’s the whole point of trying to make with Ti parent, guys. It exists to tell the truth for your sake, not just my sake, it’s for your sake. It’s here to improve you. It’s here to tell you the truth so you can have a standard with which you can live by that’s based on actual truth and not based on how other people feel about it. It has nothing to do with that because people’s feelings change. Truth doesn’t change. “Well that’s your truth.” No, no. Logic is not about someone, that’s your truth. That has nothing to do about that. Sure, truth can be interpreted in different ways, but logic is a nice little process. If this, then this. If this is true, then that’s false. If this is true, then that’s true. If this is false, then that’s true, et cetera. It’s a nice little process.

Chase: If you know how things interrelate with each other, either with extraverted sensing in the physical environment or extraverted intuition in the metaphysical environment, if you know people’s futures, if you know the collective what if or if you know the collective what [inaudible 00:15:12] extraverted sensing and you could see the pattern of that, you can start making logical decisions with Ti parent for ESTPs or ENTPs to help navigate that realm in a way that makes sense.

Chase: So why would I want to live a lie based off, “Oh, we have this rule or this tradition or this standard based on how people feel. We don’t feel it’s good to overpopulate the planet so we’re going to have all these Malthusian based laws and it’s just like, “Okay, come on. Who cares?” How about we should just try to be sovereign human beings and live in truth instead of living the lie?

Chase: ESTPs have it right. They test the rules, they test the boundaries to see if those rules or boundaries are structural, to see if they’re worth having if they’ll exist. ENTPs do the same thing. We test the social norms constantly. We test traditions and yet we’re very traditional. Why? Well, we have Si inferior. ENTPs actually are very traditional. The problem is is that once we try a tradition, we end up either loving it or absolutely hating it so we’ll throw it away. I’m sorry guys, as an ENTP, I really don’t care about Thanksgiving dinner that much. I really don’t care. Like I’ll order pizza, but my family, like my ISFJ mother, she’s gotta have that traditional turkey dinner. SPs and SJs, they can live in turkey dinner land, I really don’t care. I mean, ooh, turkey dinner every year at the same time. That’s real original, guys. No, I’m not gonna do that. Si inferior is willing to have all those experiences but it has to be comfortable to do so. Si inferior is where my insecurity exists. It’s where the insecurity and the fear of the ENTP exist. Why? It’s because I’m afraid of trying new things.

Chase: For example, this YouTube channel, right? Do you know how long it took me to finally have the guts to do it? Like seriously, it took forever. Why? It wasn’t because I was afraid of failure, I was afraid of success. I was afraid that I couldn’t handle it, right? So again, it’s new. New experiences for Si inferior makes the ENTP insecure and then we get stuck in this rut of inaction because it’s like, “Well, there’s this new thing. I don’t know how it will go. I’m too afraid so I’m just gonna not make the decision.” That gives the ENTP failure to launch syndrome in the same way Ni inferior gives the ESTP and the ESFP failure to launch syndrome because they’re afraid of what they want. “I don’t know if I’m wanting the right thing.” Si inferior is similar. “I don’t know if I’m experiencing the right thing.” They’re constantly questioning themselves, afraid that they’re experiencing the wrong thing, afraid that they’re doing things wrong, incorrectly. So instead of actually trying through trial and error, with doing, we ENTPs decide to do nothing. It’s ridiculous. Do you know how long it took me to get over that? Years and years and years and I still struggle with it every day anyway.

Chase: Fear sucks, guys. Fear is the mind-killer, according to Dune. I recommend you read Dune by the way, because it’s got a very nice outlook on how fear works. Fear really is the mind-killer. An ENTP who becomes secure in his Si inferior and starts to aspire with it, do you know what that ENTP is gonna start doing when he’s going aspirational, getting into his ISFJ subconscious? That’s when an ENTP actually seeks failure. When that ENTP starts realizing that pain and suffering is inevitable and realizing that pain and suffering and failure actually makes the ENTP into a better human being, it makes them smarter, it makes them stronger, it makes them more manly, it makes them more capable. Why? Because they’re filling their SI with so much experience because logically speaking, if I’m failing a lot, then that means I can anticipate with my Ne hero what success is. Because I failed everywhere else, that means all that’s left is logically is success. So if the ENTP actually focuses on being willing to suffer and have pain, pain of life, and to have failure and is okay with failure to the point where they even seek failure following the scientific method in some cases, that ENTP will be more successful.

Chase: If you’re in a relationship with an ENTP, you have to encourage them to seek failure. You have to encourage them to be okay with pain. Why? The ISFJ subconscious is built for punishment. That’s why it’s there. It’s built to take abuse and what it does, after taking punishment and abuse, like a knight in shining armor fighting a war and it’s just constantly taking the hits but somehow making it through with that broad sword, kind of like Sir [inaudible 00:20:06] or Sir [inaudible 00:20:08] from Game of Thrones, you know what I mean? That whole situation is gaining the ENTP more and more and more combat experience to the point where they can just start anticipating the future with their prescience and actually land killing blows, over and over and over and over, all because they are willing to take the risk. All because they are willing to accept failure as the norm. That is the power of Si inferior and Ne hero, guys. It’s all about embracing failure, and not being too insecure over doing new things, or I’m not gonna do it right and people won’t feel good about me failing in this manner. Yeah, ENTPs, we’re going to fail. How about try to fail so that when you fail, you gain the experience of that failure and the more experience with failure you have, the more likely you are to create success?

Chase: First law of quantum mechanics, if you observe a probability, you inherently make it more likely to come true. First law of time, if it has happened before, it will happen again. With your logical Ti parent, you can start actually building up success in that way, specifically because you could do that. Benjamin Franklin talks about this very concept in his autobiography. Guess what? Benjamin Franklin is an ENTP. Steve Jobs talked about it all the time. Watch his interviews, he is an ENTP. These successful ENTPs finally figured it out, that suffering and pain and failure were the real hallmarks of success, the real stepping stones, the real path to follow, the path to enlightenment is through failure according to the ENTP. That’s what it means. That is the vision behind what we are.

Chase: Now the subconscious. An ENTP‘s worry is in his own future or her own future. I worry about my own future all the time, like every day. I’m worried about … Si inferior also makes ENTP super insecure with their body to the point where like we’re these crazy hypochondriacs and we think we’re dying even though we’re not. I do that all the time. I annoy the hell out of my doctors. Steve Jobs did that, Benjamin Franklin did that, Howard Hughes, another ENTP did that all the time and Howard Hughes was crazy. Like super mental over his hypochondria. Some ENTPs just can’t get it, but when it comes to our bodies, we’re super insecure in our own skin because it’s like am I dying? I feel this weird thing. Am I dying right now? No, no, you have to have faith. See, that’s what Si inferior is all about, having faith. If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to the mountain of life, the obstacle in your life, be thou removed, and it will move out of the way because if you have faith, in the midst of adversity, in the midst of failure, pain and suffering, if you have faith, eventually, because you have faith, that successful future will be yours.

Chase: First law of quantum mechanics again, observe that probability. By observing that probability with faith from Si inferior, you have inherently made it more likely that that successful future will be in your grasp. Some people call it the law of attraction. I don’t care about the occultic teaching in the law of attraction because technically the law of attraction really is the first law of quantum mechanics so oh well. Let’s just keep it scientific, you know what I mean?

Chase: So anyway, back to my own future. I worry about my own future all the time, constantly worry about it and as a starter type I’m constantly starting these crazy innovative schemes to give myself a better future all the time because I’m so worried about it. The fact that I’m already afraid of failure, I’m also worried about failure. I’m worried about failing tomorrow so then it just compounds and this is what causes this Si Ni storm in my mind that just leads to inaction and lethargy and idleness. You gotta get over your worry, guys. You just have to. You gotta get over your worry about tomorrow, and to do that, you have to develop your faith, because the more faith you have, the more you can take the punishment, the more you can take the hits in life, and the more hits you take, the more experience you have, the more likely you are to find a path with your Ne hero so that you could give yourself the ideal future that you want.

Chase: Such is the way of the ENTP. It allows you to develop that vision, and then using your INTJ unconscious shadow mind, you could use this part of your mind to execute it. Find the vision here, gain the experience in life to develop the vision further, go down here with your subconscious, and then execute that vision, and then live the vision because you’re able to do that. That is how you defeat Ni nemesis. You do it through faith. All Si users work this way. All Si users need to embrace faith.

Chase: Now it’s especially important … Si parents like ESTJs, ESFJs, they don’t really care as much about faith. I mean they do take it seriously but it’s usually from a point of tradition, it’s traditional faith. It’s not like how Si heroes or Si child or Si inferior really take it seriously. It’s because they’re trying to be responsible with their faith because ESFJs, ESTJs don’t want to find themselves in a situation where they’re just giving themselves over to dogma and blind faith, because they see everyone else with their Se critic having blind faith in their belief systems, right? That’s important about Si inferior, do not have blind faith. ENTPs are weak to blind faith, just like ENFPs are. Those are those people that give a huge amount of money to churches. Those are the people that are … ENTPs, believe it or not, everyone accuses them of being scam artists, but they are easily scammed, [inaudible 00:26:06] happened to Benjamin Franklin. A local governor scammed him and ended up sending him on a wild goose chase to England from Philadelphia or from the colonies or from Boston, I don’t remember, but he ended up in London and he was screwed. He was stranded, and he had to live in London for a couple of years. Well, his Si inferior said, “Okay, this sucks. I learned my lesson. I’m gonna take the hits with my ISFJ subconscious and guess what? I’m gonna become a better person.”

Chase: He did, and he learned so much more about his trade and when he came back to the colonies, he was way better than he was ever before, and was able to utilize all of that experience to help build for him that ideal future so he can get over his worry with his Ni nemesis. That’s who he is, right?

Chase: Te critic. Young ENTPs, myself included, have this problem where we literally think everyone is stupid. I used to walk around all the time, believing … I got such a reputation for being an arrogant fool it’s because I just walked around believing everyone else was stupid. Why? Well, that’s because if I’m being responsible with my thinking, I see other people are being irresponsible with their thinking which means they’re all stupid to a young ENTP. It wasn’t until I swallowed my pride and actually engaged in humility that is started listening to other people, and I listened to what they valued with my Fe child, but I also listened to what they thought with my Te critic. I just decided to open up my mind and learn, and because of that, I was able to empower my Si inferior to really empower my prescience and my precognitive capabilities, my what if detector and my extraverted intuition hero, and I helped build myself a better future, all because I started listening to other people instead of just writing them off as stupid.

Chase: Benjamin Franklin even talks about this in his autobiography. Guys, just listen to people. He actually has an entire paper that he wrote specifically on listening and active listening and how important it is and how to get over the Te critic because that rational critic just believes everyone’s stupid. Guys, let it go. You’re not the smartest person in the world. You’re pretty brilliant, no one’s gonna argue with that, but you’re not the smartest person in the world. Allow other people to be intelligent too. ESTPs have this problem as well, they share it with ENTPs, ETPs just think everyone’s dumb. Try to realize that people have different cognitive functions and different priorities mentally and they’re not always prioritizing thinking, thusly, because you’re learning to understand other people, because you know their cognitive functions and their type, then you won’t write them off as stupid because then you’ll be able to explain and understand the reason behind why they make the decision they do and their behaviors. Because of this science, I stopped believing that people were inherently stupid. Thank god, because now I can actually have relationships with people instead of arrogantly writing them off like I used to. It was horrible of me. Four or five years ago, no one could even stand me or have anything to do with me because that’s how bad I was, I was so arrogant about that.

Chase: The guy that took me off the street, literally, and taught me this stuff, I owe a lot to him, but I had to humble myself and he even told me to my face, “You need to humble yourself right now and listen to what I have to tell you.” He was an ESTP because he had that Te critic problem too and he had to do it and I did as well, thusly, I was able to learn from him, and then I started developing my knowledge in this science and that was like six, seven years ago-ish. I don’t remember, it’s been a while.

Chase: Fi trickster. Very interesting. Fi trickster for an ENTP, we’re basically moralists. We lack morality. We don’t know how we feel about anything. We’re super neutral about everything. That’s okay. That’s perfectly normal. People ask me how I feel about things all the time. I’m not gonna answer that question. I’m just not. It’s more like, “Well, how do you feel about it?” It’s not about what I feel. An ENTP is like what do you want or how do you feel externally or they’re like this is the experience I like or I like this, I taste this, it was good or I saw this movie, I had this experience at this place or whatever or here’s what I think about it, but we’re not gonna be like, oh I feel this way about this. It’s not about how I feel. A lot of people have a problem with that because they’re like, “Well, you’re not human or you’re a machine or you’re too logical. You only care about analytics and you don’t care about people.” Actually I do because I have Fe child, I’m all about caring for other people. When it comes to knowing how I feel, I just don’t know. So ENTPs need to be around other introverted feeling users because we use our Fe child to absorb their introverted feeling and we take on their morals and it becomes ethics inside of us and we can behave ethically.

Chase: If an ENTP is by themselves, well eventually, they’re gonna start even behaving unethically because they need somebody to be that moral compass around the ENTP to keep them there. Why is that? Here’s another example of that. ENTPs have a bad rap for being super manipulative, very manipulative. Why is that? Well, they’re virtue is sincerity and it’s about being all about truth, right? Well their vice is insincerity. Why is that? Well, if I walk around being sincere all the time to the point where it’s harsh in some people’s eyes, I’m not gonna have relationships with people. So the ENTP learns that they have to be insincere and put on a mask to wear in front of society so society would start to accept them. The problem is because they have Si inferior, that mask will start to become permanent and literally the ENTP inadvertently starts living a lie. They start being a lie, and that’s a problem. They have to have more confidence in their Ti parent and just be like, “I’m right, who cares? I don’t care how you feel about it, I’m right because it’s the truth.”

Chase: Of course, that’s not always how it happens. Sometimes ENTPs, especially me all the time as I humble myself, I find out that I’m not right and I end up learning new things and I have to humble myself [inaudible 00:32:35] Te critic, I have to see what other people are valuing, and then I have to understand with my Ti parent, “Okay, I may not actually be right this time,” and then I’m willing to change, immediately as soon as I learn something new where I’m disproven. It’s hard sometimes to disprove ENTPs because Te critic looks at statistics and data and it’s like, “Those are just made up or they’re interpreted wrong,” or it’s like, “Yeah, whatever. I don’t really believe that.” It ends up being a little bit difficult to convince Ti parent that something is true for that ENTP to change. They get really insincere some times because of that.

Chase: I learned really young that as an ENTP, people just can’t really stand my type. It was true even with my own family. My own family didn’t like that I was creating three-way deals and trades between kids and I was a little hustler. I was selling Pokemon cards for example or I’d do trades at church as a little kid and my parents thought I was manipulating the children so they banned me from doing trades, they banned me from hustling basically, right? That was really detrimental to an ENTP so instead I had to start wearing a mask everywhere I went. Eventually that mask became super flimsy and it had a lot of pride and arrogance built in it, but it all stems from the fact that society in general can’t stand ENTPs. “Oh, well, you’re too weird or you’re too out there, man. We can’t handle that,” and it’s like, “Okay well, I guess I’m just gonna put up a fake mask so to see that … ” So I have to start being insincere and being prone to lying at all times to everyone just so that I could exist in this society. Really? That’s what ENTPs go through all the time.

Chase: If you’re concerned about your ENTP not being sincere with you, there’s a very good risk, there’s a good risk that they’re not being sincere, but you just have to ask them. Is this the real you? Are you being sincere right now? Are you sure? Are you actually serious about this? Just ask. The ENTP will be like, “Oh.” How does that work? If the SI inferior or the ENTP is comfortable around you, if you focus on making them comfy and they’re super comfortable with you, they’ll take off their mask and they won’t be fake with you, they’ll be straight up real with you. If you can accept what they have to say, they’ll love you forever. In fact, they will become loyal to you. ENTJ women out there who are watching this, INTJ women, NTJ women watching this, this is major. If you want to have a great relationship, get yourself an NTP because their inferior Si child is everything you’ve ever wanted, to be able to give them an amazing experience, right? To have someone who’s loyal to you, to have someone who’s not an idiot who you can always bounce ideas off, who exists to make you feel better and to give you what you want. That’s what these people are for, right?

Chase: It all stems from the fact that society just doesn’t like them in the same way that society thinks NTJs are crazy too. INTJs all the time get labeled as autistic even though they’re not. It’s ridiculous, but you have fellow people and your NTs, and NTPs especially that, we’re all suffering in the same way here but I’m willing to take off my mask and be loyal to you if you make me comfortable. That’s all you have to do, and anyone outside of NTJs, same thing. All you have to do to get an ENTP to be sincere with you and no longer being insincere with their vice, you just have to make them comfortable. Once they’re comfortable, and they’ll start telling you the truth, the insincerity will rub off and then it will just be pure, sincere ENTP and you’re off to the races, right? Why does this happen? Well, people just don’t like ENTPs. It’s because they have Fi trickster because society views ENTPs as moralists, lacking morality, which is technically true because we just can’t make moral decisions, but we rely on NTJs or fellow Fi users to be our moral compass, because if we surround ourselves with those people, then we will start to behave morally via behaving ethically.

Chase: Se demon, very important. If you do not make your ENTP comfortable, if you do not allow them to do what they should, if you do not allow the ENTP to behave dutifully because ENTPs do not do what they want in as much as they should do, believe it or not. If you do not give them room to do this, to do what they believe they should do, to fulfill their duty, to behave honorably, you’re gonna have a problem. You’re gonna get Ti parent by their ego but if you’re still not listening, they’ll try to use their Ti child within the ISFJ subconscious and try to outlast you. If that doesn’t work, then they’ll try to strategize a way to get out of the situation, but if they’re still trapped, you know what they’re gonna do? They’re gonna burn the world to the ground. That is Se demon because just like in The Dark Knight, you have ESFP demon right here, this is the superego, for reason I didn’t write it up here but the superego is EFSP demon parasite, and it exists to burn the world.

Chase: There is an ENTP in the movie called The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker, that’s an ENTP stuck in his demonic parasite ESFP demon side. All he wants to do is burn the world down, because he had so much suffering that his Si inferior and his ISFJ subconscious couldn’t take it, because it was forced upon him. He couldn’t choose the suffering on his own. It was all forced upon him. He had no power. Child abuse, things that he experienced in war warped his brain in such a way that he became this crazed terrorist who didn’t really care. Everything was all random. It’s chaotic evil, chaotic evil is here. This is chaotic neutral, but this is chaotic evil, and it exists to burn the world to the ground. Why? If the ENTP fails to combat a situation, if an ISFJ fails to combat a situation, if the INTJ fails to combat a situation, ESFP will burn everything to the ground? Why? Well, because then there’s a chance that new life will come and maybe a better tomorrow, because that’s all the ENTP has left.

Chase: To avoid activating Se demon, keep the ENTP comfortable. Give recognition to the ENTP. Do not guilt the ENTP. Always listen to what the ENTP thinks and always state what you want so the ENTP is not left guessing what you want because the ENTP uses what you want and what you desire as a way to gauge their behavior and to understand what the ENTP should do. Because the ENTP should not be left forced to want to do things of their own will. The ENTP kinda wants just to be told what they should do and how they should behave, and what is their duty, what is their honor to serve. Because they have this very serving oriented ISFJ knight in shining armor in their head, and all they want to do really is to serve, to serve you, their lover, their friend, their family, their society, and be appreciated for it. Well, people don’t like ENTPs so ENTPs are not often appreciated for anything, and that’s one of the reasons why they become super insincere when they were trying to be sincere all along.

Chase: Again, don’t allow that to happen and you will have a great, loyal relationship with an ENTP that will change everything, and in fact, because you’re empowering your ENTP in that way, they will start getting the ability to change the world as well as the course of the future of our entire race. That’s how important it is. Steve Jobs did it, Ben Franklin did it, your ENTP may be able to do it too. I know I certainly intend to.

Chase: So if you found this video helpful, educational, enlightening, please leave a like and subscribe to the channel, support the channel. If you want to view the transcripts for any of my videos, go to my website at csjoseph.life. I’m going to be posting more transcripts pretty soon. I don’t have very many but I’ll try to get every video up sooner than later and we’re going to be doing the ENFP in our next video and I will also be releasing some additional videos on human nurture to go more about human attraction dynamics in the [inaudible 00:41:15] future so I know this video was a little bit longer but it is my type so I knew that it would be a little bit longer because it’s mine, because especially since ENTPs are very misunderstood. Definitely more content to come guys. I really appreciate all of the support, especially on Twitter and also the comments I’ve been getting on the YouTube channel, so that’s been fantastic. Again, if you have any questions about ENTPs, leave a comment and I will do my best to answer your questions. With that, I’ll probably see you guys tonight or tomorrow. See you then.

Hello. Your idea of the ENTPs ultimate nightmare gave me a plot for a novel. Can I use it? I’m an ENTP myself, so my Fe requires to be honest about it. I’d love to build a novel about that idea…

This is by far the most relatable article I’ve ever read as an ENTP/A myself.

This article is so so profound and relatable. Currently I’m in an extremely unwanted comfortable state, sort of in a limbo, not going forward, in a stagnant state. I’m going to take this advice, seeking for failure.
