ENTP - Personal Relationship
ENTPs’ homes are very organized and run efficiently. They always take their parenting role very seriously, and constantly put their child’s needs before their own. They expect their children’s respect, and to follow the house’s rules and expectations. ENTP parents enjoy feeling completely in charge of situations, making it clear to their children what is expected of them. When their children do not obey, ENTPs have no problem reprimanding/punishing their children. Because ENTPs like being in charge, the teen years are usually the most difficult for ENTP parents and their children. Particularly difficult children may rebel or lash out, and ENTP parents may have a difficult time letting go. ENTP parents must remind themselves that sometimes they need to sit back and let their children grow into becoming independent and responsible.
Although they like overseeing everything, ENTP parents are still great at helping their children learn and develop. They look for ways to promote education and independent thinking in their children. They usually pass on their desire for success to their children, and children of ENTPs are rarely lazy! Ultimately, they want to help their children become smart, independent, and hard-working adults.
ENTPs make faithful and fun romantic partners. They take their romantic relationships very seriously, and are constantly looking for ways they can strengthen and improve their relationship. However, it may be difficult for ENTPs to always follow through on these ideas, which can be difficult if their partner is a “T” (thinking) personality type.
ENTPs are very aware of their partner’s feelings. They have a knack for sensing when their partner is feeling mad or sad, and they do their best to help their partner feel better. ENTPs are very warm and empathic toward their romantic partners.
ENTPs are energetic and outgoing people who are interested in learning as much as they can about their friends. They are great communicators, and love having long conversations to get to know others on a deeper level. They enjoy engaging in conversations that help them learn more about others and the world around them. ENTPs love stimulating, intellectual conversations, and are not afraid to challenge others in doing so.
ENTPs seek out friends who share their views and interests, and have little patience for others with different views and lifestyles. They are especially attracted to others who exude confidence and have a strong desire for knowledge like themselves. They make have a difficult time becoming friends with “P” (perceiving) personality types, who like to keep their options open and make decisions more slowly than ENTPs.
