    He seems like a bit of a loose cannon eh? ENTP here, not entirely sure what would be the “telltale” signs. But I can offer some insight of how it is for me in conversation with someone. I always try to rush the sentence or point someone is trying to make. Saying the bullet point of their...

    What do you have intrinsic motivation for?

    Most of my intrinsic motivations are just for basic things. Hunger, sleep, cleanliness. Usually quite attainable, so I’m very content with things most of the time. I also get a weird urge to clean up if my “flow” is disturbed. I’m not quite sure that is, but it will suddenly hit me sometimes...

    Times you've changed your mind

    I’m pretty close-minded about somethings, and open-minded towards other things. There’s no... how would you put it... universal setting for all topics. I reckon this is how most people are. “Any belief system you have has got to be updated and revised as you take in new data. You’ve got to be...

    151 Pokemon memory test challenge

    Eh, the main story and playthrough isn’t complex at all. But if you ever want to play against humans it is a bit more complex. Levels are capped No items Pokemon are seperated into tiers so it’s not just legendaries stomping around all the time Double battles / singles Teams of three out of...

    I hate to be INTP

    Oh yeah? Well I hate to On topic. INTPs aren’t really worse off or better off than other types. If it really bugs you though, you can try using your intuition more. Spend less time analysing experiences and more exploring. Really helps to pull you out of a funk. Reading more of your post...

    151 Pokemon memory test challenge

    I still play pokemon Go today, so I doubt this challenge would be very telling for me to do it. However; I did sink many many hours into the first 2 generations, so I’d say it would nearly be a given that I’d remember them. I only played through the 3rd generation (after a 2 year break from...

    My brother had one two years ago. “accidentally” had a ton of peyote. He wanted bear root to chew on for his sore throat, but his friend gave him peyote instead. We suspect it was intentional, but to what end - no idea. He burned up his truck and was quite paranoid for about a year. He has...

    Fun Thought at 3:25 AM in the morning

    Yeah - I relate to the general felings of this post from time to time. It’s kind of nihlistic. It can really bring me down sometimes, but I just have to remind myself of a couple statements. Everything you do is objectively meaningless. But you, yourself, create meaningfulness. Whether that is...

    Non-substance methods of overcoming social anxiety

    Also worth mentioning is that most people won’t remember any “screw-ups” you do. Most people just think about themselves, not you.

    How do you deal with negative emotions?

    Of course there’s a name for it, shoulda know, heh. Pretty sure I’ve been like this since at least the 3rd or 4th grade. By then I was already unanimously regarded as “gifted” so I already had plenty of ‘positive attention and encouragement’. But I’d still enjoy ‘negative attention’. For...

    Implicit Bigotry Test

    How do you deal with negative emotions?

    Well not exactly “RANDOM” in the maths sense. But just slightly different brain chemistry / diet / wakefulness. A specific combination yes, but not caused by a singular event in my past I could point at. I have noticed that I’ll have negative emotions if satisfy enough of these things. But...

    How do you deal with negative emotions?

    I never thought my negative emotions or bad moods were ever really CAUSED by something that is actually bugging me. They just seemed to pop up at random. Even if I try and meditate on what could have been the cause I get nothing. I could just make something up I suppose, but that’d be...

    A niggling social problem

    Do you mean something like this? What is actually being said: My mom: Hey look, the icecream cart opened up early this year. Me: Cool, must be because the weather is so hot. -What is really being said in my moms eyes is...- My mom: Look, icecream, I want icecream lets go get some. Do you...

    How do you deal with negative emotions?

    Hmm. Negative emotions are more like a “dark mood” that sets over me. If I exert a little bit of self control and continue as if I am NOT feeling negative emotions they simply pass. A good deal of the time I’m just content. Not super jolly or sad/angry. Maybe a 5 or 6 on a scale from 1–10. It...

    LGBT Thread

    As this has no replies, it is clear that no INTPs are LGBT. They alrwady have a lable for themselves and dont need another. . . Jk. Idk where they are. As for myself I’d describe as being asexual + aromantic. Pretty sure that doesn’t count.

    Non-substance methods of overcoming social anxiety

    Just be confident and imagine yourself more prepared for the interaction than they are (even if you are not). I’m not sure how friendly or warm this actually appears . It usually intimidates the other in my experience. If that’s not your speed though, just listening for 80% of the conversation...

    Social skills

    Oh I see now. By “sometimes not care about others” do you mean that sometimes you do? When I’m in a “not caring” phase about people I OUGHT to, I just force myself to keep myself in line, and not do anything that’ll upset the status quo. The self control is tiring though, so I need to spend a...

    ENTP info

    Eh, maybe I understood it in a nebulous sense. I liked it put into words for my own sake. You may be right in the fact like, “just because an optomitrist knows how eyes work, doesn’t nean they see better than everyone else”. It is very likely it’s just a mental comfort that boosts my...

    ENTP info

    I agree that cognitive processes are never a HARD fact about a person, but it at least gives you something to jump off of. I always analogize it with the usefulness of movie genres. You can call a movie a Romance movie, but it could also have some comedy / action in it. It is not an exact...

    As an ENTP I prefer the other makes the first move. And I’m male! They usually do, so I’d say you should be fine.

    Being Emotionally Inarticulate

    Heh, as an ENTP I can kind of get this. I can literally just say, “no” to my mother in a reply and she takes it like I yelled at her. Same goes if I say, “fine”. With my father no ONLY means no, and, “fine” means fine. Much more comfortable talking with him. Although I understand these...

    Avengers: infinity war

    I think Mr.Dwarf said it could heal him at some point, but for how did Thor know? Idk maybe The Force told him it would heal him? And how did he know to go to Wakanda? Idk I guess The Force told him that too.

    Intellectual vs. Pseudointellectual

    My understanding was that an intellectual knows things that are generally agreed on by the scientific community. Whereas a “pseudointellectual” is treading on flaky stuff or a system purely of their own creation. It could actually be true things, but is “psuedo (fake)” because there is no way...

    Why INTPs Can't Finish Things

    Aaay ENTP here. Surprisingly similar sounding story to me. I was also tested and identified as gifted as a child. I built stuff like a radio, hand fan, flashlight. Just for fun (in elementary). I pretty much excelled in everything at school. My small community didn’t know what to really do with...

    Subjective Experience of Time

    Yeah. I put some more thought into it, and there’s a lot of things you have to consider. The environment, like you said, but I would also add which “world” you’re interacting with as another important modifier too. Interacting with internal world: 1 minute of subjective time = 45 seconds...

    Subjective Experience of Time

    If I count out a minute, the actual passage of time is always about 40 seconds. Do you think there’s any corelation with type on this? Or a reason for some peoples’ “percieved” impatience? How does everyone elses “minute” compare to the objective minute.

    How fast is Intuition?

    Interesting. Since they’re both essentially “unconsious” functions I can find myself in a similar situation. The answer is given to me, or it is not. If the answer to what I want isn’t “given” to me in .1s, it usually means I am going to struggle. And I will have to use Si and go step by step...

    Avengers: infinity war

    Hah, Thor: Ragnarok struck me as a movie that had an original vision of being dark / mysterious + dangerous, but got rewritten as a comedy. Hela seemed like she was there just to have a plot. Like Goldmember in Austin Powers! Which is probably why she felt a little off. Such a serious character...

    Avengers: infinity war

    Yeah I just saw the movie a couple days ago. I also agree that Thanos was the main character here. It did make me... cringe a little at how one-dimensional MOST of the heroes were. I was hoping more from Dr.Strange this time around, since he was basically just a cameo in Thor:Ragnarok. But as...

    How fast is Intuition?

    Ne dom reporting in. Hell, if your definition of intuition is a new idea, then I would say it is VERY fast. What takes a long time (for me) is putting it into words. Following the ideas while speaking is pretty much an all-consuming activity for me as I try to wrangle my thoughts into...

    Best girl type for male INTP

    INTP always intelligent?

    As a super Ne user (ENTP) my brother that is an INTP is likely more intelligent than me in quite a few ways. He actually has the stamina and desire to deeply understand things. Analogy-wise, he has 5 giant holes dug out, while I’m off digging a new hole every two scoops. More specific to your...

    You and Learning Disabilities

    Uneven? Like more error prone? Or just remembering / emphasizing different aspects of a thing. For example, you could have a hard time with the “simon says” games with 4 colours. But, if you instead remember it as a number sequence instead of a colour sequence it is much easier. Or is it just...

    You and Learning Disabilities

    Interesting stuff. I don’t have any kind of learning disability (that I know of, hah), but one of my biggest fears IS losing some of my mental capacity. Would you say having a learning disability is like a net-loss overall? Or more like a direction you just can’t develop so you grow out in...
