MBTI examples » fictional characters an ENTP » Tyrion Lannister (The Song of Ice And Fire)
ENTPs are generally enthusiastic, creative, conceptual, and clever. They tend to focus on their external environment and they accurately assess situations and people.
This ability to intuitively understand people and situations puts the ENTP at a distinct advantage in their lives. They generally understand things quickly and with great depth. Accordingly, they are quite flexible and adapt well to a wide range of tasks.
They are often quite talkative, outgoing, and entertaining. Their interest in creating and having fun often influences their ability to fit in at social gatherings.
ENTPs are fluent conversationalists, mentally quick, and enjoy verbal sparring with others. They love to debate issues, and may even switch sides sometimes just for the love of the debate. When they express their underlying principles, however, they may feel awkward and speak abruptly and intensely.
They highly value knowledge, and spend much of their lives seeking a higher understanding. They live in the world of possibilities, and become excited about concepts, challenges and difficulties. When presented with a problem, they’re good at improvising and quickly come up with a creative solution.
ENTPs are basically optimists, but in spite of this (perhaps because of it?), they can become petulant about small setbacks and inconveniences. ENTPs have little patience with those they consider wrongheaded or unintelligent, and show little restraint in demonstrating this. In general, however, they are genial, even charming, when not being harassed by life.
ENTP’s are often able to motivate people and create a vision for others to follow. However, they should be cautious that their focus on the task does not cause them to neglect the needs of the people involved.
