    What do you have intrinsic motivation for?

    What’s your understanding of “the game”, and what are the rules for winning? (Srs question. I’m perpetually trying to work this out and always ending up back at square 1)

    How random can you be?

    I kept flipping a coin until I was bored of it. hovered around 50-55%. For a while it stayed at 100% and then suddenly plummeted, which was a bit weird, I guess

    how to not waste your life

    Nah it’s a great name - Gives an air of importance to my silly little drawings :p I deliberately gave it an important sounding name so that I wouldn’t write its contents off as unimportant. It’s a product of me knowing how useless my brain is.

    how to not waste your life

    I stopped making to-do lists a while ago and started keeping what I call a Register of Commitments, which is a list of commitments I’ve made to people. I only write down items I’ve said to someone that I will do. The difference is that with a register of commitments, I focus my time on doing...

    Does smoking help with stress and anxiety?

    I wasn’t responding to you. Nor was I boasting. I responded to OP question with my anecdotal experience of nicotine addiction and recommendation to avoid it. If you haven’t had the same negative experience, then that’s great for you.

    What job should I get?

    I don't think this is the right fit for Artsu. I also wouldn't consider it a field where the results produced are meaningful in the lives of others, unless all that is meaningful for others is the bottom line of a construction company... Besides, it's generally expected in the Australian...

    Does smoking help with stress and anxiety?

    Sure, nicotine might alleviate the symptoms of anxiety at first, but if you haven't already introduced nicotine to your system, you're better off without it. People will tell you it isn't addictive, but the easiest person to trick is yourself. I quit smoking nearly 3 years ago, and I still get...

    Work Holiday Visa to Australia or Build up creds in Singapore and apple for PR later?

    What the hell does being Asian have to do with anything? People come to this country from Asia all the time. Most of our immigration is from Asia. I didn't state it explicitly, but I'm advocating the temporary working visa option, as opposed to permanent migration. No point waiting years to go...

    Work Holiday Visa to Australia or Build up creds in Singapore and apple for PR later?

    Need dating advice as a male ISFJ

    ^ yeah true. Not so much an explicit goal. More important to just not get bogged down by trying to pick up girls, but rather just engineer an increased possibility for the desired outcome, and enjoy the journey.

    Bingo! @Animekitty , my advice to you is this, and I'm going to keep it simple: Phase 1: Attend planned social gatherings. How you find these is entirely up to you (meetup.com has been mentioned, but just attending something where there will be other people will do - maybe go to a cooking...

    Actuary or Engineer for INTP as career?

    I’d advise against engineering, unless you desperately want to do some specific thing. If you’re not 100% sure, it’s much more beneficial to start off in something much more broad and specialise later. The trade off is that it’s much more practicable to narrow down from a broader field than it...

    Being Misunderstood

    If people are raging at you when you talk (you even recognise that you’re a long-winded talker) then the problem is probably in the way you speak, and looking for validation from other INTPs is not going to help, but rather reinforce the negative trait you’ve developed. Speak more concisely and...

    benzodiazepines

    While somewhat effective as a short term solution, an unhealthy crutch long term. Pharmaceutical remedies are not the solution to anxiety(/depression). Probably better off exploring therapy.

    Why INTPs Can't Finish Things

    Why INTPs Can't Finish Things

    I 100% relate. I’ve also had the epiphany, exactly as you describe. My existence has been mostly geared towards trying to fix it since 2013. Furthermore, I’m currently in therapy for anxiety related to the aforementioned. It seems futile. I hope we can all one day overcome this crippling...

    It’s a community where we can all get rich together. We’ve been accused of being a pyramid scheme, but it’s nothing like that - the model is actually an upside down pyramid. A DIMARYP! And all the money funnels down to us, the people! Who’s with me?

    Just wanted to say I relate to this very strongly. Nothing noteworthy to add, other than I have developed a kind of learned sloppiness, where I’ve realised that in the sheer mass of shit to get through, things can’t always be perfect. I relate very strongly to the lightbulb thing.
