Fictional characters with the ENTP personality type
by Louella Alderson
Today we look at 21 fictional ENTP characters. ENTPs are dynamic individuals who love nothing more than diving headfirst into a project they feel passionate about. ENTPs are quick to question existing ways of doing things and they’re known for playing devil’s advocate. They enjoy a good debate so prepare for a lengthy discussion when you’re meeting up with an ENTP. The beauty of ENTPs is that they enjoy seeing arguments from different perspectives and their thirst for knowledge means they are willing to learn and change their opinion.
From this list of ENTP fictional characters, you can see that they are fearless characters that aren’t phased when things don’t go to plan. ENTPs have a dry, sarcastic and sometimes dark sense of humor. For example, Chandler Bing from Friends loves to crack an inappropriate joke in the most awkward situation.
