What are ENTP A.

Be aware of yourself

As an ENTP, your dominant function is extraverted intuition. Since this function is more strongly represented in the consciousness of the ENTP in comparison to other functions, the frequent use and the resulting increased exercise of this function also result in certain strengths corresponding to the type of ENTP. In return, the more frequent use also leads to a displacement of other important functions in the consciousness of the ENTP. This results in very specific weaknesses typical of the ENTP. The more the weaknesses come to light, the less balanced the ENTP's personality. The weaknesses of the ENTP are usually based on insufficient development of its second function - introverted thinking. The strong intuition usually goes hand in hand with a weakness for the perception of concrete details. As a thinker, the ENTP tends to give too little importance to feelings.

The most important strengths and weaknesses of the ENTP are listed below. If you, as an ENTP, discover such weaknesses in yourself, this is no reason for resignation, but rather I want to motivate you to work on your weaknesses in addition to developing your strengths. It is completely normal and an expression of healthy personality development that a person pursues his strengths.

Acknowledging your weaknesses is an important step on the way to perfecting your personality. You shouldn't view your weaknesses as evils that need to be hidden.

It is better if you see your weaknesses as a challenge. They give you clues as to which parts of your personality you are paying too little attention to and thus offer you the opportunity to recognize which steps you should take if you want to develop your personality further and fully develop your potential.

You always have the opportunity to practice less well-developed functions or to find ways to compensate for their deficits. It is no coincidence that older people in particular, who appear balanced and satisfied, are more difficult to assign to a certain type. In the course of their lives they have learned to bring their initially poorly developed functions on board.
