  1. Social norms and social conformity

    I'm not Sure if it's typical of INTPs but i always wanted to be immune to social conditioning/social control through conformity and social norms...etc Basically I've always wanted to live my life the way I wanted. Not to sound arrogant but I'm a multipotentialist meaning that I happen to be...
  2. INTP vs ENTP vs INFP

    Hey guys, who amI exactly? Can someone tell me? I constantly score INTP but many people have pointed out How I might actually be an ENTP or anINFP instead. The reality is I might actually inbetween those three. What seem to be certain is that I'm some sort of an NP. I heard that ENTP were...
  3. Attention as the main social currency

    Hey guys, I've been thinking lately about the notion of attraction and attention in the public Space. Lately i've been analyzing interactions in public Space and one thing struck me hard was... Attention(or mini love as I call it...). It seems as we live in a love/mini attention deprived...

  6. Homeschooling: WHy not? Would you?

    OK, i get that homeschooling takes time, money and effort. I'm also aware that developping social intelligence is important. But besides those, why not? Personnaly I've struggled the first 2 decades of my life with school issues( not enough autonomy, not enough time to explore the things...
  7. A funny thing...

    LOl; I had a pretty crazy school and (baby)career trajectory. Retrospectively, it appears to me that I consistently need a break every 4 to 5 years because I get some kind of nervous breakdown. I've heard that INTPs were notorious for their drop out rates and tendecies. I get it every 4-5...
  8. Universal basic income: Why not?

    I'm not an economist(far from that, heck, I hate everything that is related with money), but It seem obvious to me that capitalism is directly and indirectly responsible of a lot of pains in this world. Things could be exponentially improved if people had - if not a basic income- their basic...
  9. Confession of a hater.

    Hate is a strong word. But I hate it. I hate the poeple around me. I hate people who come too close from me: ideologically as well as physically. I hate the people who think like me. I hate proximity. My family;the people who chose the same job as me; My " friends"; My neighbours; The...
  10. The reason why INTP fail in social settings?

    Have you ever thought about what makes an interaction with someone or with a social group succesful? I believe that that secret thing is : VALUE ADDITION. When you can come up with extra value in a group setting or an interaction, you are viewed in a positive light(for a moment of course)...

    Days after days, I see living proof that poeple who are in a position of losing are way much more developped on a moral stand-point.( atleast on a surface level !). I arrived to that conclusion by collecting infos over years: fat women, black people, immigrants, beggars, low socio-economical...
  16. Moments of bliss & the Introverted mask

    hey guys, I have two questions... 1° Are INTP types more distinct from other types( In other words, do INTP physically stand out from the crowd in social situations= do they send a weird energy?) or is it that INTP's self-consciousness kicks in all the time and makes us nervous in new...

  29. INTP as the best psychologist and mental health specialists ?

    Hey guys, After gathering informations from several different sources it paradoxically appears to me that INTP- the supposedly socially awkward and autistic guy- have generally the potential to have the greatest understanding of human psyche.... Why is it so? I think it's pretty...

    I feel kinda happy and proud to state this; but yeah, I think that working in the neuroscience field( which is a pretty broad and multifaceted field ) is the best or even perfect job for an INTP nowaydays.
