Debater (ENTP) - TAURUS

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.

Once they get into a groove, it’s difficult for them to get out of it. Object in motion stays in motion. Object at rest stays at rest. Appreciative of beauty. Attuned to physical pleasure. Debater/Tauruses have a regal quality about them. They are graceful and diligent laborers. They can be stubborn, bull-headed, and set in their ways, but they are also great listeners and very dependable. They can absolutely go on forever. They never feel fatigued. They are like machines. And no matter what they throw at them, they will inevitably overcome their obstacles because they’ve already prepared for every contingency. They are the hand-built truck that will never break down. They are the bulletproof vest that never rips. Although more interested in absorbing information than in making decisions, they are quite rational and logical in reaching conclusions. When they apply Thinking to their Intuitive perceptions, the outcome can be very powerful indeed. A well-developed Debater/Taurus is extremely visionary, inventive, and enterprising.

These people rarely pass up a good opportunity to learn something new, especially abstract concepts. This information isn’t usually absorbed for any planned purpose as with dedicated studying, they just find it fascinating. They are hard workers, especially when the reward is rooted in luxury, sensuality or something that invests in their future. They love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. Their love of food and anything luxurious and sensual means that they are easy to buy for and easy to please. They are always up for experiencing these types of things with their social circle.

To receive love from them, notice the ways in which they’re inviting you into their world. If they’re inviting you to explore alongside them, it means you’re important to them. As they grow more comfortable around you, they are likely to shower you with verbal and physical shows of affection as well – this type may not be the most doe-eyed lovers out there, but they will let you know that they care. They aren’t careless with their affection. They fall in love one step at a time. They have very strong feelings. When they do fall in love, things get serious relatively quickly and last for a long time. They usually know their own minds and are more likely to fall in love because it feels right rather than because of an arbitrary “they’re cute” reason. Their love life is rooted in a foundation of appreciation and reverence. They’re very aware of the people they love, and they very much enjoy reflecting on them. They don’t say “I love you” often, because they would rather show you. They like life to be simple. They have no qualms meeting their partner’s physical needs through extravagant gifts, acts of service or even by charming their partners with sweet words. However, they are usually at a loss when their partners have unfulfilled emotional needs. It’s not that they don’t care, but they have no idea how to navigate the sensitive world of emotions. They might choose to avoid the whole topic entirely or back away – which may be interpreted wrongly by their partners as abandonment.

They quickly and accurately understand a situation, and objectively and logically acts upon the situation. Their Thinking side makes their actions and decisions based on an objective list of rules or laws. If they were defending someone who had actually committed a crime, they are likely to take advantage of quirks in the law that will get their client off the hook. If they were to actually win the case, they would see their actions as completely fair and proper to the situation, because their actions were lawful. The guilt or innocence of their client would not be as relevant. They work with and relate to information that is logical and objective. When you’re communicating with these personality combos, use impersonal analysis and a detached perspective to look at situations. They dislike the abstract, wordy discussions or those that focus on future implications. Unless they can reference it from experience or they can see it in front of them, such information does not engage them.
