Before we take a look at these characters, let us introduce the personalities that make them up.
What Is An ENTP Personality Type?
Also known as the ‘Debater’, the ENTP is one of the personality types of the Myer Briggs Type Indicator that is extroverted, intuitive, a thinker and perceiver! They are very charismatic and bold, not to mention creative, mentally agile and persistent.
These individuals like to re-energize themselves by meeting friends and family, socializing at their favorite eatery, taking a walk in the park with their friends or simply hanging out with people they love. What matters is that they have someone to give them company, share their feelings and thoughts with and converse maniacally with any topic that comes to mind. It’s refreshing to connect with others.
ENTPs are intuitive which means they don’t always focus on the facts or what is in front of them. Yes they very much appreciate logic and the relationships they can see however, this does not stop them from thinking out of the box. People who are intuitive are known for making many discoveries in world history and this does not happen by just ordinary thinking; they must go beyond the scope they are given! They give value to their vision, dreams and even imagination and combine that with what they already have in their hands.
Such people give weightage to their thoughts and what seems structured or logical rather than the emotions they feel for others. Sometimes this can be detrimental and they find difficulty in understanding the emotional complaints or requests their loved ones have. People with this personality type focus on values like truth and justice and prefer to see the logic or aim of things. They can be described as task oriented rather than people oriented.
ENTPs are perceivers and this may explain why they are able to achieve so much in terms of their discoveries and contributions to the world. Such people are spontaneous; they prefer things that come and go rather than a structured boring plan. They need excitement and can’t wait for it. However, at the same time, they are flexible and understand that things will occur in their time so they have a casual approach as well that helps them think openly and spot more opportunities along the way.
8w7 Enneagrams – Nonconformists
The 8w7 enneagram type shares most of its traits with the 8 type enneagram but also has some traits from the wing 7 too. This enneagram is generally comfortable with conflicts that they may face and this is because they are confident, independent and quite ambitious! They persevere in their path and do not let others get in the way. Furthermore, they may be quiet but when the time comes they will speak up and defend their own stance or those of others.
Although they wander much around in their mind, these enneagram types are also great at handling people and taking practical steps. They make the right decisions and prefer to do so on their own without much interference. Apart from thinking clearly and logically, they are creative and like to test innovative ideas! They go the extra mile when it comes to establishing goals or milestones that they want to achieve. They are big dreamers and quite idealistic in their vision. They want to create a world or society where people can go big or go home. They want to help others achieve their own dreams by ensuring no one creates hurdles for them.
This enneagram type, however, is afraid of losing their own autonomy and maybe this is why they are so independent because they want to assure themselves that they can handle most matters on their own. At the same time, these individuals also struggle when it comes to being emotionally honest or vulnerable. They will try to ignore their own emotions or what they feel because they are either too afraid of facing them or just want to focus on what is going on in the external world. They won’t even let anyone too close as they do not want to become emotionally or mentally vulnerable.
This enneagram type has however developed great people skills and can become effective and inspirational leaders. They are open when it comes to sharing their thoughts and opinions about certain matters with others – they do not care about what others will think. They are comfortable creating connections with others and can easily do so.
However, this enneagram does have some weaknesses. They will have difficulty in following instructions from authority figures and they are impatient at times. They may overindulge in themselves or their work and may become insensitive to the feelings of others.
The Basic Fear – 8w7s
This enneagram type fears being controlled and manipulated by others. They are scared they will become helpless or weak to the extent that others will tell them what to do and how to do it – something which is against their wishes or desires. They want to be able to control how they do things. Hence, this is why they prefer to work alone despite having great people skills and will remain independent and somewhat distant too. They do not like authority because it triggers the fears in their subconscious mind of being controlled in one way or the other.
What Non-Conformists Desire
The Non-conformist desires to remain in control of their own life. They realize that this can only be achieved if they work hard and become independent. This desire is so strong and deep that they desire it for others too hence they are oftentimes advocates for others too. They want to be able to be free and not under the influence of others.
To achieve this, they defy whatever vulnerability they may have within themselves either emotionally or mentally. They stay distant from others when they can and ignore any feelings that arise in them. This helps them stay focused on their goals and not fall into the traps set by other people.
ENTP 8W7 Fictional Characters – 5 Popular Examples
In this section, we will take a brief look at the characters who are often associated with the 8w7 ENTP personality type.
The Joker is one of the most famous characters any of us have ever known. He has appeared in numerous versions of the Batman cartoons and movies and has movies that are dedicated to his own character. He is a dark yet outspoken villain who has a funny yet scary and lethal sense of humor. He is out to get revenge and expose the true nature of people but he is always met by his arch enemy The Batman who arrives just in time to stop him.
The Joker is quite outspoken and likes to have his fun with people; he is the type of person who has to have an audience in order to put on a show thus he is a true extrovert. Furthermore, he cannot stand it if someone else has more power than him in the room. He must be in control and everyone should be submissive in front of him.
She is not your harmless neighbor who cries about his family problems but a witch who has been able to conceal her true identity and hence stay undercover. She is smart and intuitive and hence has figured out the truth behind Wanda!
He is definitely the perfect mixture of the ENTP 8w7 personality – a blend of both the personalities. He is quite blunt when it comes to his thoughts and feelings and he, like other types of the same personality, cannot stand if someone is better than him – it shows and he tries to show his power and dominance; the hulk is an exception whom the Iron Man definitely admires with much awe.
Tony is smart and well spoken and knows how to behave with people but is not deeply in touch with his feelings. On the other hand, he is someone who likes to have power and will do much to keep it in his hands.
A villain who loves attention and cannot stand but keeps power with him, Lord Voldemort is another fictional character that has the 8w7 ENTP personality. He loves to put on a show for his followers and follows a logical path to his ideas and desires but also likes to stay in control; just like Harry and other 8w7s, his biggest fear is to lose control over his own body.
Vicomte Sébastien de Valmont
Valmont enjoys playing manipulative intellectual games with people, and wants to destroy their ideologies—in the case of Madame de Tourvel, he has decided to seduce a woman well known in society for her piousness, her virtue, and her devotion to her beliefs. He wants her to surrender to him, while still believing in the sanctity of marriage, in good and evil, and in God, because she cannot help herself.
