Several famous actors, musicians, and filmmakers are ENTPs (Extroverted Intuitive Thinking Perceiving). ENTPs are known to be flexible, truthful, and talented. They have quick-wits and enjoy conversation and debate. ENTPs also enjoy playing the devil's advocate.

Who is the most famous ENTP? Salma Hayek tops our list. Salma Hayek is often labeled as an ENTP. She Hayek said: "I work hard, I make my own living and I love it. I like having financial independence." Likewise, Rose McGowan is complex and confident, two qualities that lend her to the ENTP personality. Amy Poehler is often listed as an ENTP. Poehler said: "I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody's passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn't mind leading."

Several famous men are also believed to be ENTPs. Jon Stewart is quick-witted and a good match for the most talented of debaters. Questioning, talented, and witty are words that describe other ENTPs, like Bill Maher.
