Culture is to people like water is to fish.

We’re in it all the time, but we can’t see it, and we’re certainly not aware of it. We don’t think about our culture – until it’s not there anymore.

Many expats or international teams going through cross-cultural trainings are asked to define what their culture is. If nobody has ever asked you that before, this question can stump you.

I’ve been asking my clients and research participants to describe their country in 5 words, and here are some of their responses.

ENTP

ENTPs are often described as enterprising, challenging, curious, objective, analytical, clever, and outspoken. Their lead functions are extraverted Intuiting Ne (aka brainstorming) and introverted Thinking Ti (aka analyzing) in the dominant and auxiliary position, respectively. Our ENTP writer in the meeting wrote in quick, sharp points. In this case it did not show an overly aggressive emotional foundation. The angularity indicated he enjoys debate, and that assertiveness and rapid responses would be a strong point for this person. Heavy pen pressure indicated emotional depth and mental acuity.

ENTP

www.mbtiparty.com Since the ENTP got the most "likes" after I posted all type descriptions on facebook, let's take a closer look, shall we?

:-)

What you may not already know about the ENTP is that this preference pattern has a "Get-Things-Going™" Interaction Style. Dr. Berens also refers to this type as "Explorer Inventor". Their theme is "discovering new ways of seeing things and doing things. Informing and enlightening others with valuable information. Enjoy exploring ideas with others, and trust what emerges from the interactions to be what is needed to get them to the goal."*

In terms of Neuroscience of Type (Dario Nardi, PhD), ENTP-brains often show their dominant extraverted Intuiting function in the form of a "Christmas Tree" pattern. That means all brain regions are fed with energy in rapid succession and cross-referenced, enabling the Ne function to see patterns and "quickly tap into relationships across contexts".*
