    Do you plan to help the world? How?

    I came up with a plan to change things along the lines of Zeitgeist and/or Project Venus where integrated automation becomes the primary workforce, freeing people to live their lives, free of indentured servitude and toward pursuits they always imagined doing but couldn't due to limiting life...

    What is your purpose in life?

    This is a subject I've been spending a lot of time on. For INTPs I think life purpose is centered around the ability and will to create. I find that if I'm not being creative or active in the creation of ideas or objects, life tends to be depressing and stale. However, if there are no...

    Hey, What is your career? Does programming really suit intp?

    Any of you guys try working a 'field' job? I believe it suits the INTP desire to work by oneself, from home, or a place where you don't feel confined by a boss or even an office. It may be a better career option to change things up.

    'Aliens, UFO's & Spirituality'

    I saw an episode of Unsolved Mysteries years ago that showed how they would use concealed pig's blood during the 'surgery' to give the impression they were manipulating the body's internal organs while having the patient hold a crucifix or small cross the whole time. The episode went on to show...

    'Aliens, UFO's & Spirituality'

    It's interesting you mention Psy-Ops as I thought it could be a possibility. But upon further reflection, I find it hard to imagine what agenda could be behind revealing the core aspect of all organized religion(we are one). I watched a video interview with the LL Research team thinking I'd...

    'Aliens, UFO's & Spirituality'

    This subject fascinates me immensely since pouring over the seemingly endless amounts of info coming from the web. There's of course a lot of disinfo and whatnot, so it can be very hard to remain objective. The two pieces of info that stand out the most to me is the Hidden Hand posts from GLP...

    i'm not an engineer, i'm an artist.

    I've been drawing since childhood so I love art. Friends and family say I should go online and sell my stuff but I tend to get inside my head about it and end up never committing to it. Honestly, I don't think I'm good enough, while I've seen people who have a lesser understanding of anatomy...

    What do you do to manage and release stress?

    Is wasted potential common amongst INTPs?

    I've come to the conclusion that a lot of INTPs may not have a sense of their true life purpose. This is something that I've been looking into a lot recently since I feel life has become stagnant and unsatisfying. Watching some self help videos, it seems having a lot of life experiences as...

    Is wasted potential common amongst INTPs?

    I think the problem for many of us INTPs is finding our life purpose. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a comic book artist. However, like the OP, I felt the educational system has done more to ruin than enlighten and I feel that I also have untapped potential. I now work in IT as a...

    Your life goals? Dreams?

    It's definitely hard to achieve big dreams when the obstacles getting there seem so insurmountable. But if you face the truth about whatever it is we want to do, it's ultimately our minds that prevent us from achieving whatever goals or dreams we have. Guys like Jacque Fresco and Peter...

    INTP's are becoming obsolete

    Tell that to the people who want money for the goods their robots produce. Or robots produce abundance to a degree where money for necessities becomes obsolete. Hope for the latter, prepare for the former.

    INTP's are becoming obsolete

    INTP's are becoming obsolete

    How do you feel about videos in which people die?

    Saw a gif where some dudes ran across a racetrack while cars were at high speed. One guy makes it, the other is eviscerated. Once in a while you'll even see it on the news where some foreign militant suddenly goes down or you'll see aftermath, all on network TV. I'm pretty used to it now but...

    The ideal INTP career

    I'm toying around with writing some science fiction but I've heard some good money can be made from writing trashy romance stuff. Apparently, women eat it up if it's written halfway decent, though my INTP-ness would work to improve the quality of writing to where it may or may not ever get done....

    INTP problems

    For me it's the ability to be heard. I have all these ideas on ways to improve life (in my mind) for myself and others but trying to explain it all to others while being labeled and dismissed is frustrating to no end. Motivation and focus is in a state of ebb and flow when it could be in...

    Do INTPs need secretarial help to get stuff done?

    As INTPs, we all have highly creative minds. In a lot of cases, we'd like to see our ideas brought to fruition, however with our penchant for procrastination, and a loss of motivation due to over thinking and/or perfectionism, a lot of potentially great ideas are waylaid by our lack of will...

    What is the Nature of Consiousness?

    Sorry, the nature of consciousness is to experience, which is an evolutionary process, IMO. We are conscious at birth, though we do not remember it, yet as the years pass, we have unique experiences across an equally unique spectrum, our consciousness continually evolves. Therefore, it is to...

    This is a problem I've discovered about myself recently. I went to see a counselor who said Active Listening is a key to developing your empathy. I realize it's hard not to get bored by small talk and stuff INTPs shy away from, but it helps build social aptitude as well as interpersonal...

    I've pretty much always sucked at math to where I have to count with fingers at times. I believe my understanding of math concepts was damaged at an early age. Its quite frustrating since I'm able to apply other logic based concepts quite well. I tried Kumon before but was coerced into...

    I want to roam the world and be free

    I think there should be places all over the world where INTPs could go to fulfill that longing since we all seem to get that urge now and again.

    I can shut off my emotions.

    I like to think of this behavior as if you can just turn off your Kirk/McCoy and turn on your Spock. It definitely helps where emotion would be less desirable and logic prevails, but can look like a 'non-human, green-blooded sunnuvabitch' to those who don't understand. Also, like Vulcans, the...

    Pros/Cons of Programming for an INTP

    I'm seriously considering programming as another skill to add to my repertoir. Unfortunately, math is probably my worst subject.

    The option of an Intp dominant society: How bad do we want it?

    People who don't work shouldn't live?

    I think as INTPs, this is an area where our approach to improving the world comes in handy. However, I think the sensibilities towards day jobs and whatnot is beginning to change and evolve. Instead of a hierarchy, why isn't the job-place more of a co-op? Knowing your job instead of someone...

    I find that I like to people watch. Not in a creepy way, as you all might know. 'Staring' at people is frowned upon in society.
