Best ENTP quotes

Not all of these quotes are by ENTPs, but they’re definitely in the spirit of ENTPs.

Richard Feynman:

“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.”

“I would rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned.”

“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.”

“I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong. I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of uncertainty about different things, but I am not absolutely sure of anything and there are many things I don’t know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask why we’re here. I don’t have to know an answer. I don’t feel frightened not knowing things, by being lost in a mysterious universe without any purpose, which is the way it really is as far as I can tell.” – Richard Feynman

“There is no reality except the one contained within us. That is why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.” – Herman Hesse

“A successful person isn’t necessarily better than her less successful peers at solving problems; her pattern-recognition facilities have just learned what problems are worth solving.” – Ray Kurzweil

“There’s nothing worse than sitting down to write a novel and saying, ‘Well, okay, I’m going to do something of high artistic worth.” – Douglas Adams

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney

“The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.” – Chuck Pahlaniuk

“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.” –Nietzsche

“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.” – Voltaire

“To criticize a person for their race is manifestly irrational and ridiculous, but to criticize their religion, that is a right. That is a freedom. The freedom to criticize ideas, any ideas – even if they are sincerely held beliefs – is one of the fundamental freedoms of society. A law which attempts to say you can criticize and ridicule ideas as long as they are not religious ideas is a very peculiar law indeed. It all points to the promotion of the idea that there should be a right not to be offended. But in my view the right to offend is far more important than any right not to be offended. The right to ridicule is far more important to society than any right not to be ridiculed because one in my view represents openness – and the other represents oppression.” – Rowan Atkinson

ENTP Clichés

The following are just tired, overdone clichés for unimaginative ENTPs:

“I’m so random! Onion! Global warming! Corruption! Amoeba! Interstate highways! Metaphysics! Language!” – the mere act of flitting from thing to thing does not make you an interesting person.

“I have a habit of starting things without fini” – haha, this is funny because you didn’t finish the sentence, right? So original!

“Article on procrastination? I’ll read it later.”  Everybody has heard this joke. Put in a little more effort. Maybe try engaging with the subject matter?

“I’m an asshole, but I’m an honest, so it’s okay.” That’s a very low bar to set for yourself.
