12 Shades of ENTP: MBTI & the Zodiac

12 variations of entp

No two ENTPs are completely alike. Sure they may all qualify as ENTP, but to what degree? Variations among the MBTI types have been attributed to factors such as maturity and level of development of the type’s composite functions. But what if astrology signs played a role as well? Most people are likely to have known their astrology sign long before learning about their MBTI type. It is possible that some people’s self image may be heavily shaped by their understanding of their astrology sign and consequently may behave more like their sign simply because they believe it.
