Argumentative: “Writing that attempts to prove the validity of a point of view or an idea by presenting reasoned argument.”
The most argumentative MBTI type is highly debatable, much more so than the others questions that have been asked. However, after asking for many people’s opinions on forums, I have got the following results from the people surveyed:
This data clearly proves that the ENTP is voted the most likely to argue. Now then, shall we look at why the ENTP is the most argumentative? Okay, first of all extroverts love expressing their opinions externally to the people around them. Introverts take longer to think about what they are going to say, and are not as quick on their feet like extroverts are. They also do not enjoy arguing as much as extroverts. It is therefore clear that extroverts prefer arguing more than introverts.
Now this part is tricky. Whilst most would say that intuitive people would argue a lot more for their values and beliefs, many would say sensors complain just as much about the laws being enforced in their town. However, most leaders in our world, good and bad, have been intuitive. Examples are Martin Luther King and Adolf Hitler. They stick up for their beliefs and argue for what they believe is right until the day they die. Intuitive people are therefore more likely to argue than sensors.
Thinkers are more likely to argue, due to the fact that feelers hate conflict and can not stand arguing with other people. They believe in peaceful relationships without any anger.
Are perceivers or judgers more argumentative? This is the winning question. ENTP’s think spontaneously, and live in the moment. This means in arguments that they are more involved in the argument and they are quicker on their feet. Whilst judgers need to be more prepared for an argument, such as in a courthouse, perceivers can argue anytime, anywhere.
From this information it is clear that the ENTP is the most argumentative type. A common job for an ENTP is a lawyer, where they can get paid to do their favourite thing in life- argue! ENTP’s can be very annoying people, and they can almost never admit their wrong!
