Debater (ENTP) - LEO

Who is a Debater (ENTP)?

Debaters are individuals with the Extraverted, Intuitive, Thinking and Perceiving personality traits. They tend to be analytical, adaptable and enthusiastic people with excellent people skills. Being visionaries, debaters greatly value knowledge, and spend much of their time seeking a higher understanding of life.

Their natural charisma and dignity will often draw people to them, falling under Debater/Leo’s magnetic pull. These people love being the center of attention. They thrive on flattery compliments - which often come to them easily. Most of them will have an innocent quality to them, their happy and outgoing nature makes them a joy to be around. They like to amass wealth and choose jobs that have a great salary and allow them to lead. They make for great leaders and protectors. Because of this, they are often cornerstone of social groups and will lead in planning processes and decisions. Conversely, they often don't do well in situations where they have to take orders from other people.

They are less interested in developing plans of actions or making decisions than they are in generating possibilities and ideas. Following through on the implementation of an idea is usually a chore to them. For some, this results in the habit of never finishing what they start. The Debater/Leo who has not developed their Thinking process will have problems with jumping enthusiastically from idea to idea, without following through on their plans. They need to take care to think through their ideas fully in order to take advantage of them.

To receive love from a Debater/Leo, notice the ways in which they’re inviting you into their world. This wacky, off-the-wall type is perfectly fine exploring life independently – so if they’re inviting you to explore alongside them, it means you’re important to them. As they grow more comfortable around you, they’re likely to shower you with verbal and physical shows of affection as well – this type is anything but shy and though they may not be the most doe-eyed lovers out there, they will let you know that they care. They always need to feel appreciated and loved, and if they do, they return that love generously. If they are ignored or left to feel unappreciated, they will feel very hurt. Breakups and divorce are not just painful emotional losses, but also serious blows to their ego. The deep emotional impact a breakup can cause them is therefore twofold - they take it as a personal failure above all. Most Debater/Leos will do everything they can to avoid that outcome.

Under stress, they may lose their ability to generate possibilities, and become obsessed with minor details. These details may seem to be extremely important to them, but in reality are usually not important to the big picture. In general, they are upbeat visionaries. They highly value knowledge, and spend much of their lives seeking a higher understanding. They live in the world of possibilities, and become excited about concepts, challenges and difficulties. When presented with a problem, they're good at improvising and quickly come up with a creative solution. Creative, clever, curious, and theoretical, they have a broad range of possibilities in their lives.
