Debater (ENTP) - VIRGO

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.

Debater/Virgos are oftentimes practical, hard-workers who love to better themselves. They think deeply and can their perceptiveness means that they can always find or create order within the chaos. Their quest of self-improvement extends to their bodies, their clothing, and their appearance. This combined with their discerning eye, means that they can be incredibly concerned about what kind of impression they give to others. They are usually happiest when they are helping others and have a generous nature, which can sometimes make them targets of those who wish to take advantage of them.

They have straightforward expectations in the workplace, but ones that aren’t always easy to meet. Strong believers in meritocracy, people with the Debater/Virgo personality type expect their ideas to be heard by those above them, expect robust debate among their peers, and demand that those they manage offer up new solutions and ideas regardless of their positions. While this isn’t always how things play out in reality, they know what to look for, and can avoid those strictly hierarchical institutions that they would otherwise struggle with. They need to be the best to feel worthy of their existence. They can be so obsessed with their own image of perfection, that they lose touch with their true impulses. They can come off as far more rational than they really are. Their feelings are generally a great mystery to them. They feel so many things so deeply, but they usually don’t know how to talk about it. The only way they can express the ineffable is through dry sarcasm.

Debater/Virgos have a tendency to be drawn to people who are slightly unstable. It’s mostly because they want to put these people back together. Of course, they always feel they have the capacity to tap into the deepest emotional truths of another person. This belief is what makes them so magnetic. But this belief is also often the source of their suffering. This often gets them in situations where they get taken advantage of, or feel like they have to be someone’s only savior. Their relationships can start to feel transactional. They like life to be simple. They have no qualms meeting their partner’s physical needs through 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.

Relationships are easy to keep with Debater/Virgos - who love to show and share their love, but are not needy themselves. They love to spend time with family that they hold dear, and they make for great friends to keep around. They are always willing to help their loved ones in times of need, and will be there for you in times of thick and thin. Their family means a lot to them and they will do anything that they need to do to keep relationships strong and healthy in that department. They do tend to get caught up in family drama however, as they are nosy and sometimes intrusive, but all in the interest of the person that they hold dear.
