    What is friendship and do you want it?

    I've been thinking about friendship as it would happen. For the past three weekends I've been playing phone tag with a friend, and continually being unable to schedule a get together with this person. It's neither of our fault, but it is frustrating to be alone for a third weekend alone. I find...

    Weird eccentric INTP stuff you do

    I make the horrible mistake of being honest about what I think, which I think makes people hate me. I'm not good at acting in accordance with what other people want to hear, and honestly I would like to be better at being a phony when it suits my interests, but I'm just so much happier being...

    INTP´s view on masturbation?

    I don't care if other people mastrubate, and I probably do it very infrequently. I never use anything to supplement my experience other than my awesome imagination. Although on GREAT occasion I'll make the mistake of curiously browsing through internet porn...which is always a weird experience.

    Your dark side

    Depression is a problem for me. It drives people away from me, and I burrow further into my maladjusted behaviors I learn from chronic loneliness. I do stupid things when I'm in that state. I mostly abuse substance of any kind, from drugs to television to food to anything I can take for a quick...

    Why bother doing anything?

    You should hear the song 'Waiting around to Die'. I forget the artist, but you'll know it when you hear it. It ends with the speaker singing about how they've found someone to wait around to die with, and that that's all they really wanted, and I feel the same way. I think you might too.

    Are men and women naturally different psychologically?

    I've taken a Neuropych course, and have a general knowledge of psychology from being raised by a parent that majored in the subject. I remember my neuropsych course specifically defined what modern science considers some actual, proven differences in male and female cognition. I would recommend...

    Repeating Ones Self.

    I hate repeating myself if the other person clearly wasn't listening, like they were just tuning me out like they had something better to be thinking about then actually giving me the time of day like a decent human being. I just say, 'forget it' or 'nevermind' if I think this is the case, and...

    INTP Emotions - What is wrong with me?

    I think it's pretty common for people to not feel entirely comfortable with their emotions, and even the emotions of others. Emotions can be volatile, unpredictable, hard to control and completely without logical basis. Unfortunately, they're a part of life that is better to deal with than to...

    Any smart and creative suggestions are welcomed!

    Initiate friendships, and invite people to do things if you think they have potential. Accept invitations to socialize even when they sound sub-optimal. Learn to be tactful so that your company is more appreciated, at least until you get to know individuals more closely. Maybe try to determine...

    How do you look?

    I am casual and dress like a minimalist, with some slight alternative influence. Usually I prefer to wear jeans, and a well-fitted t-shirt, preferably plain with no writing. I have a dirty pair of black converse that are almost always put to use. I have this thin, raggedy gray jacket with an...

    What's a Genius and Do You Consider Yourself One?

    I generally score around two standard deviations above average. I'm not a genius, but I'm above average. But I often read arguments against reading too much into the results of IQ tests, and how they are incomplete measurements of human intelligence, and I tend to agree with such skeptical...

    who wants to talk? (intp social thread)

    I know this feeling, but be careful with indulging it too often. Once you get into a habit of it it can become much darker, and much less cathartic than initially intended. You can slowly lose control of your ability to consciously delve into, and to leave, a familiar depressive inner world, and...

    Dante's Inferno Test

    I don't think I would much mind Limbo, which I thought was the same as Purgatory. It sounds kind of like what life is like on earth, except maybe even a little better. It's sorrow without torment, and you're in the company of some great minds according to the quiz (and if there is such an...

    INTP shit you did as a child

    When a female INTP reveals herself.

    Yeah, I can totally understand that. I'm not upset that I'm assumed to be a male. I think it does say something about society, but I'm not entirely sure what that even is honestly. Maybe how the male perspective dominates society and culture in much the same way that heterosexuality is the...

    When a female INTP reveals herself.

    People ALWAYS assume I'm a dude online. I don't take offense to it, though I dunno, maybe I should, but I don't like to make a big deal about something I'm fairly sure won't be understood, like trying to defend a nuanced feminist perspective to a general public that will only rip me apart for...

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - perfect for INTPs

    "You just want to be right"

    The idea that men are more concerned with physical appearance...

    I see the argument used over and over again to justify men valuing women's physical appearance to the extent that it is valued in our culture. I'm not an expert, but I did recently take a neuroscience class wherein we explicitly reviewed the differences in male and female brains. I found that...

    INTP trait you like the most in yourself

    I like my ability to sound profound to others. Although I know I am not as wise as I sound, I find friends often appreciate my ability to put words to ideas and concepts. It makes me feel smart when otherwise I know I'm just an average person in almost every way. I'm close to being an INFP, so...

    Much Belated Hello

    Louis C.K. INTP?

    I hope it's not just because he's an entertainer, because that would be fallacious logic since a lot of entertainers are known to be introverted when not performing. I hate to assume your reasoning, but you were kind of lean on rationale, and by lean I mean completely silent. If my curiosity...

    Louis C.K. INTP?

    Louis C.K. always strikes me as a huge INTP.

I find I relate to...

    The Need for self-labeling

The truth is that typology is not by any...
