    Game of Thrones

    I skipped over comments because I am reading the books first and I'm trying to avoid serious spoilers. I am currently reading Storm of Swords. I will only then watch the series. I try to read the books first to let my imagination have free rein. It's more fun that way.

    How do people in the West avoid Nihlism nowadays?

    Maybe not biological drives, but biology and neurology certainly play a significant role. Feelings of purpose originate in the brain. Understanding the brain is a good first place to start. I don't know, purpose itself is rather vague and means something different to different people. It...

    Meeting other INTPs in real life

    I have one really good INTP friend and we share a very twisted sense of humor :D Our corrections of one another are more like, "Isn't it X instead of Y?", "Oh yeah" It's more amicable.

    How do people in the West avoid Nihlism nowadays?

    I'm really not sure why even a current scientific understanding of the universe or a lack of a personal God in our lives necessarily implies that life has no inherent meaning, or why it necessarily leads to nihilism. It seems like a logical leap to conclude this. I think there are other ways...

    How do people in the West avoid Nihlism nowadays?

    I found Nietzsche to be too dogmatic and confident for his own good. Total loser.

    How do people in the West avoid Nihlism nowadays?

    A little alcohol, lots of sex, good books, observing nature, being a life learner, sex, endless philosophical inquiry, good food and company, and sex.

    INTPs and High School

    I had the weird combination of being a nerd and an artists who drew weird things, so I was a little extra weird. I was picked on a little bit, but I used to crush their little heads with my thumb and index finger, making me feel warm and fuzzy inside as their heads turned to mush. I was really...

    How INTP and INFP conflicts

    One of the problems with MBTI is that it converts dichotomic results from the questionnaire into a cognitive function breakdown. Now if cognitive functions are true, then there should be very little in common with INTP and INFP, since they only share a preference for half of their functions...

    Last movie you watched

    I saw Logan and absolutely loved it. Wolverine was perhaps my favorite comic book character as a kid and while I was disappointed in his role as Wolverine in the first three X-men movies, he has redeemed himself with "Logan". I thought he finally nailed the character.

    Is the internet dying?

    What worries me most is all the misinformation that already misinformed people are consuming from the internet and spreading to other misinformed people. Web searches should have the option to reveal evidence based results first, supported by facts and sources, unless that option is already...

    Imaginary creature running along side

    I think I imagined some ninja character running and jumping alongside trying to keep up, sort of like in a rooftop chase in one of my cartoons/movies. Also, I imagined a large ostrich pulling our car on rope. I would look out the front windshield from the backseat and imagine what the ostrich...

    Nintendo Switch

    I have been a Legend of Zelda fan for over twenty years!!

    Nintendo Switch

    The switch looks like a lot of fun. It is a good console to supplement the PS4 I have. I do not have the money to spend on the Switch yet, so I bought the Breath of the Wild for our WiiU. So far, I really enjoy the game play.

    What do you construct in your mind using your Ti?

    There is an entire universe to be explored and we are only just scratching the surface of knowledge. Consciousness is a product of a complex network of neural activity, which can be reduced to the laws of physics. I do not know if we will ever understand the how because we can never be truly...

    Self typing help, please!

    I often can't see things that are right in front of me if that says anything about my sensory processing abilities :D
  18. JimJambones

    Self typing help, please!

    Yup. I think it's just the way type is framed within MBTI. Intuitives use sensing, it is just underutilized, mostly because your mind is on more abstract, conceptual things. Sure you can have fixations or abilities that require Si or Se. They may be hobbies or a job that require it, or needed...
  19. JimJambones

    Self typing help, please!

    I would say it is more accurate to say intuitives in general are more likely to enjoy fantasy than sensors. With that said, I think NTs tend more toward sci-fi and NFs toward medieval romanticizing and other fluffernutters, but I think it depends on the individual and their interests and their...

    Self typing help, please!

    Art, science, humanities, fantasy, sci-fi, horror, anything expansive and exploratory is NTP to the core. The difference between NTP and NFP types is that NFPs seem no need justify their imaginations. NTPs are pretty logical artists and everything we do has either a scientific, philosophic bent...

    INTP Family and Influences

    ENTP here. I spent most of my childhood in an Ne cloud and just pursued my own interests: doing art, teaching myself how things worked, making up my own kick ass characters and stories, reading comics, learning science, playing video games, riding my bike, getting lost, etc. My mom is an ISFJ...

    This girl thinks she's INTJ but I'm seeing INTP. Thoughts?

    Immediate impression was STJ. She doesn't seem particularly intuitive in this video. But, I will give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she knows more about herself than I do.

    Epicurism, Cog's thoughts

    People often misunderstand Epicureanism. Democritus and Epicurus were atomists, yet Democritus accepted a type of determinism, while Epicurus believe that atoms sometimes deviated from a predictable path, which he referred to as "the swerve". This swerve of the atoms is the reason why humans...

    How do you guys express your emotions?

    I can actually be pretty sensitive to emotion around me, but I don't really show it. I tend to avoid situations where there are a lot of negative emotions and tend to gravitate to environments where the atmosphere is slightly positive. I can enjoy boisterous environments for only a short...

    INTPs and dark humor

    I do like dark humor that makes jokes about the absurdity of life and about death. I am morbid like that. ***edit: I would just like to add that I dislike ignorance that tries to pass as dark humor.

    INTPs and dark humor

    haha...same. Sometimes I laugh at horribly absurd, tragic occurrences. I really can't help it. I've had to suppress laughter at a funeral a couple of times because of some random thing I find funny, considering the circumstances. It's like a way to deal with things in life.

    Psychology of Patriotism (or A Boner for the Military)

    I have respect for cops and soldiers where it is earned, and most earn it. Most are likely decent people who probably believe in what they are doing. They do a lot of work I would work tirelessly to avoid unless I absolutely had to do it. With that said, I find nationalism kind of frightening...

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    I've noticed that there is social pressure to use emoticons in casual conversation and that has even carried over to semi-formal communication. Not that it is a bad thing in itself, to each their own, but I have found it embarrassing to overdo them. Not every thought need carry emotional weight...
