      Thanks for the comment. If you look under the strengths of the ENTP you'll see that that I mentioned traits that a "people" person might have. I'll take a look at your hub, thanks for telling me about it.

      Extrovert, intuitive, thinking and perceiving. NT's are supposed to be "people" people. If you want, check out my Hub on the Myers-Briggs test as well. Cheers, ECAL.
