ENTP – Another “so many possibilities” type!
Written by Catherine Rains
Similarly to ENFP preferences, ENTP’s dominant function is Extraverted Intuition, meaning they see possibilities everywhere they look, particularly as they pertain to systems and how they can improve/fix them. Some of you might recall that in MBTI® Certification we dub them the “possibilities for systems” type. Again, with preferences for both N and P, they are the “super P’s”, being open to all possibilities, which can sometimes result in difficulty with narrowing or focusing their wide range of career interests. This following list from ENTP types certainly reflect this wide range of interests, while also showing their primary “heart of type” motivation (NT) to improve and/or fix a system: Lawyer, Writer, Linguist, CIA Agent, University Faculty, Coach, Consultant, Public Speaker, Politician, Human Resources, Psychologist, Training and Development, School Psychologist, High Ed Administrator, Chef, and Radio Personality.
Call to those of you who prefer ENTP – What other careers have you been attracted to? The more we add to this list the better. Feel free to repeat what is already listed above. We’re looking for the most comprehensive list possible so that other types fully understand what careers feel most natural to those of you who prefer ENTP.
