Personality Type: ENTP
The ENTP personality type is the ultimate devil’s advocate, thriving on the process of shredding arguments and beliefs and letting the ribbons drift in the wind for all to see. Unlike their more determined Judging (J) counterparts, ENTPs don’t do this because they are trying to achieve some deeper purpose or strategic goal, but for the simple reason that it’s fun. No one loves the process of mental sparring more than ENTPs, as it gives them a chance to exercise their effortlessly quick wit, broad accumulated knowledge base, and capacity for connecting disparate ideas to prove their points.
I have asked myself what it is that I do, more than other people have. The answer is sometimes as simple as "I'm a problem solver." But most other times there is a follow up question: "I don't understand. What is it that you do again?" So I have to get a bit more detailed:
I solve user interface and user experience problems throughout a product's journey from concept to inception to updates and maintenance. That product can be an app, a website, or a service. In short I design user experiences.
Also I can solve a Rubik's Cube in just under 7 minutes
