ENTP (Extraversion, iNtuition, Thinking, Perception) is an abbreviation used in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).

The ENTP has been described variously as the innovator, the originator, the lawyer, the inventor, the explorer, and the visionary.

ENTPs are frequently described as clever, cerebrally and verbally quick, enthusiastic, outgoing, innovative, flexible, loyal and resourceful. ENTPs are motivated by a desire to understand and improve the world they live in. They are usually accurate in sizing up a situation. They may have a perverse sense of humor and sometimes play devil's advocate, which can create misunderstandings with friends, coworkers, and family. ENTPs are ingenious and adept at directing relationships between means and ends. ENTPs "think outside the box," devising fresh, unexpected solutions to difficult problems. However, they are less interested in generating and following through with detailed plans than in generating ideas and possibilities. When ENTPs are used correctly on a team, they offer deep understanding and a high degree of flexibility and problem solving ability. The ENTP regards a comment like "it can't be done" as a personal challenge, and, if properly motivated, will spare no expense to discover a solution.
Examples of ENTPs are:
Thomas Edison - inventor

Julius Caesar - Politician

Steven Spielberg - filmmaker, entrepreneur

James A. Garfield - American President

John Adams - American President

Rutherford B. Hayes - American President

Walt Disney - filmmaker, entrepreneur

Tom Hanks - actor

Celine Dion - singer

Steven Pinker - Scientist

George Carlin - comedian, actor, author

Julia Child - chef, author, TV personality
