How do you feel about an ENTJForum Meetup?
- Sounds like fun, I'm in!
- Need more details before I can decide
- No thank you, I like my anonymity
- Nope - this is way too impractical
- No, because (explanation to follow in a post below)
Ok, lets admit it - we think we're cooler and more amazing than anybody we meet. So why not meet each other?
Why do it
One of my colleagues (an ENTP), had an idea to have beers/ Sunday brunches with NTs we were friendly with, and it turns out that between us we knew 3 ENTJs (including myself), 2 INTPs and an ENTP (him). We've done it a few times now, and its been great! A lot of us run small businesses, so you'd think we talk about that, or 'typing', but actually its fun and casual, and more of an unpredictable roller-coaster. So I figure... why not expand this idea?
In general, ever since I discovered KTS/ MBTI, its been incredible to discover how well it explains much of the real world, and especially my interaction with non-NTs. Also, its been great to discover how much fun it is to hang out with other NTs, especially ENTJs.
I'd wager that the contributors to this forum are probably very interesting in real life - to me, and each other, and can't help thinking that there is a reservoir of potential that should be tapped somehow.
I know, of course, that we are dispersed all over the world, and also that many are jealous of their anonymity. But maybe some of you believe, as I do, that it would be a fun experiment to see what happens if some of us try to find a way to interact in person, sometime in 2010. Hence this poll.
I'm currently living in Houston, TX and would be interested in a meetup around here, but my work/life schedule is very flexible, and I frequently travel to the coasts visiting family and friends, so while I'd prefer Texas, I don't really have a problem with anywhere in the continental US (provided a decent number of people can show up!). And of course, we can try local meetups between ourselves.
Or maybe nobody agrees with me, and this idea dies a morbid, rapid death. Either way, lets find out!
PS: Obviously, I would suggest we feel free to bring anyone along, regardless of type. We're not KTS/MBTI Nazis.
