Just some entertaining dialogue y’all might enjoy.
You need competence at the beginning to build shit such as sewers and roads and governance. ENTPs great at experimenting but need conscientious people to make sure things get done and also don’t catch fire.
I would definitely consider that networking and openness to be their strengths, but I’m having a rough time seeing how that networking/signalling strength then also contributes to functional governance.
See: https://aeolipera.wordpress.com/2018/06/09/mechanics-of-the-pyrrhic-cycle-of-r-k-part-1/. (Referring to the SMV/IEV ratio, which is effectively the same as networking strength.)
They definitely have impetus to experiment and jettison failing systems though. Maybe that’s where r/K hits a switch and affects a difference.
Yup, the main reason ENTPs are useful for breakout is their various “visions”. Many fail, some are successful.
Definitely low in agreeableness though. That probably mitigates the worst excesses.
Yes. That and the ones whose visions are viable form the new civilizations.
But they’re willing to do unconventional things, which is absolutely necessary when the institutions are pathological. The very best networkers are ENFJs. Such people are at their peak effectiveness in the Age of Affluence. We might even break this down into classes.
ISTJs seem like mechanics, tinkerers, engineers, accountants, and that sort of thing, though I confess they are a mystery to me.
Imagine a building code auditor who enjoys his work.
“Why would you ever build a chair with three legs, are you insane? If it’s not illegal, it should be. It’s not right.” An ISTJ collects stamps not because he enjoys it, but because you’re supposed to have a hobby. It’s the rules.
Odious little creatures, aren’t they?
ENTP racism :-). But yeah, I don’t get along with them either. At least they’re introverted and mostly keep to themselves.
