    The one-man-show of the INTP

    I've noticed that sometimes, when I really get into the subject, I end up completely dominating a conversation because I keep talking and talking, sometimes temporarily negecting others' responses in between. I'll eventually respond to them, but not before I finish all I wanted to say, and I've...

    Autumn photography

    Just made a couple of pictures, it was very misty outside. I wanted to give the pictures a cool autumny atmosphere, I hope I succeeded. I wonder if personality type influences the kind of pictures you make. If it influences your composition, color usage, lighting, subjects, etc...

    Socionics INTp?

    What's the difference with the MBTI test INTP? Why is the last P not a capital in socionics? As I'm a lazy bum, I'll ask you guys if any of you can summarize the major differences in the two. What may socionics teach me that MBTI may not and vice versa? I just took the socionics test and this...

    Dream moods

    I love this site. You should probably take it with a grain of salt, but it's interesting. http://www.dreammoods.com/ You basically just search for things that were in your dream, and it will tell you what metaphors it might stand for. Last night, I dreamt I was smoking quite a lot, so I...

    The forum seems to be really slow lately...

    Does anybody have an idea what is causing this? Am I the only one? For the past few days it seems to take AGES for pages to load here. Of course, now I'm making a thread about it it seems to be getting better, but it's still relatively slow.

    Wanting to retreat

    Sometimes I feel like I'm sick of a lot of people. I wish I could just restart, not knowing anybody. Or just retreat in general. I don't like it when people look at me, or even think of me. The thought of that makes me uncomfortable. It's not always like this, but feelings like these...

    Acting and INTPs

    I love acting. Improvising, making up characters, giving them a special voice, a history... Playing them especially, of course. I think a lot of INTPs would enjoy acting. Our ability to imagine we're someone else is very beneficial when doing so. I often find that others in my drama club keep...

    Do any of you play terraria? It's quite a fun game, it's like a 2D RPG and Minecraft made love to eachother on a hot summer night, and this is their secret love baby. This'd be a thread to share nifty little discoveries/tips/tricks, et cetera.

    INTJ - INTP compatibility

    How well do INTPs and INTJs get along? I've just been kind of surprised by the sudden coldness and weird judgemental(shouldn't have been a surprise, but it was) behavior of a female INTJ I've been talking to for a while. It feels like she has been wanting to go somewhere with me all the time...

    Anxiety/Panic attacks

    It's that time again. I know I'm prone to anxiety and it seems to be creeping up on me again. I constantly feel a little detached, unreal, and I have this constant "nervous rollercoaster-feeling" in my stomach. How do you guys deal with anxiety? What could be causing this sudden return of...

    How to support an *NFP

    My dad's an *NFP(he's always kind of melodramatically claiming he has no friends, but at the same time he always claims to like being alone... Bit 50/50 really.), and he recently lost his job. Now I've always gotten along really well with my dad and I would like to support him a little more...

    Typing famous people

    I don't think there's a thread about this yet, right? There's a thread about famous INTPs, that's all I know. Let's start with a predictable one: Bob Dylan? Personally, I don't really have a strong idea about what type he might be. I think an INTJ perhaps, or INFJ... I'm pretty sure about...

    Distrust in people

    How distrustful of people are you? I'm pretty distrustful. I don't like it when others prepare my food when I'm not there to see they're not slipping some poison in it or something. I'm starting to wonder whether I should be worried about this. I'm also afraid of people having too much...

    Influence of parents on functions

    My parents are both feelers, my mother is an extrovert, and my dad is a bit 50/50 on extroverted- and introvertedness. I like to think I have a pretty well developed Fe for an INTP because of this. Could this be true?(I'm talking about the first part, without the spoiler.) What types are your...

    Sudden thoughts

    I sometimes hear a word or sentence in my head out of nowhere. It's not exactly a voice, it's more some sort of... sudden thought or so. For example, today when I went outside, I suddenly 'heard' the word 'schizophrenic dog'. It's not really a hallucination or voice... Just, a thought. It may...

    INTPs and the nerd stereotype

    INTPs are often described as the standard nerd, however, in reality, I have found this to be pretty untrue. I have a few INTP friends, and they tend to be a bit impossible to put inside some sort of single high school cliché... Definitely not nerds, though. Generally they seem to hop in between...

    Urge to use 'creative' words

    I often find myself using alternative words in common sentences, I don't exactly know why I do it, I think to cause some sort of change or slight surprise in people or so... But I just do. I've noticed I do it really often. Especially to make offensive or mean stuff a little more goofy. Is...

    Nothing ever went wrong. I have to give presentations and stuff every year, but for some reason, I completely shut down today.

    Generalization

    I have picked up the habit of doing this a lot. Does this make me an INTJ? I just find it easy. It comes in really handy, and feels especially good(but afterwards stupid) when angry. I am very (sometimes maybe too) aware of the world definitely not being black and white, though... I usually do...

    It kind of feels like I can't get really close to anybody other than other INTPs(who are rather rare). Sound familiar? I have a few pretty good friends, yet I still feel this certain gap between me and them, except for my one best friend, an INTP. It feels like he's the only one who knows...

    Not really, but alright, listen up. I've noticed that it seems to be hip for girls to be 'lesbian' now. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against homosexuality, feminism, whatever... But has anybody else noticed this? It just seems really ridiculous to me. Especially the more...

    LIFE OF THE PARTY AND BEING AN INTP!

    I hate parties. I keep on trying to join in on the 'fun' but I can't. The music in clubs is too loud, alcohol is not my thing, and I just can't seem to fit in with the whole dancing, not talking, making-moves on physically attractive people thing. You're supposed to flirt and such I guess, and I...

    Giving too much information.

    Sometimes when in the heat of a fun conversation I tell some things about myself I would never normally tell to someone, and then in the end I will feel a bit ashamed and feel as if I have exposed myself too much. It makes me feel weak. I've told this to the people I've had this with, but they...
