    Pessimism/Negativity/Skepticism

    Do I have a cynical view of humanity? Yes. However, over time, I have come to the realization that I can have an impact on my own environment, based on my actions and words, and while there is very little I can control in regards to all of humanity, I can't help but adopt a positive view...

    You Are Not Special

    I agree. Nothing wrong with having self-esteem. In fact, I would argue self-esteem and self-confidence is a necessary component for any individual to be able to be productive, take risks, and make one's way in the world. Self-esteem derives from experiences and situations that shape how you view...

    1. is there a problem with the character/mindset/values of people who hold opposing political views to you? if yes, describe. I judge people for holding a different political view if their view is based on emotionality or the bible told them so. Usually injustice and hysteria ensue when people...

    You Are Not Special

    I did too, but in (American) culture, it has been the prevailing view that boosting a child's self -esteem and preaching that every single person is exceptional is preferable to telling people the truth. Most people aren't going to make a lot of money or go on to live notable lives. Telling a...

    You Are Not Special

    This guy's commencement speech has been getting attention lately in the news. People have criticized him for not being inspirational and for being too critical. I disagree and think this guy speaks the truth and gives teens a much needed reality check instead of inundating them with constant...

    "Thats so gay" commercial. Discuss.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7hQN4Amaeg Take-away from the commercial: If you say "that's so gay," Wanda Sykes will interrupt your lunch and harass you. For me, the less Wanda Sykes in my life, the better my life. Result: omit ever saying "that's so gay" to avoid Wanda Sykes. Commercial...

    No money - no stimulation?

    I agree with Meer, and like you, I always enjoy reading Architect's posts. He's a good example of a successful INTP who has reached the type of balance I strive for one day. In a way, the necessary amenities that I need to live comfortably, and the constant reliance on different varieties of...

    why do iNTPs love mainstream music?

    Yeah, I figured that's where you were coming from. Admittedly, I used to have the same attitude as you and probably just recently changed my position. I am now of the opinion that manufactured cheese (or disposable cheese like you said) can be enjoyed for what it is sometimes. I prefer my music...

    why do iNTPs love mainstream music?

    Mainstream music/popular music of the 1960s: Rolling Stones Beatles Bob Dylan Cream Aretha Franklin To dismiss any group because they are part of the "mainstream" seems rather limiting and is also a nonsensical way to determine the validity or significance that a song might have to offer...

    INTP LinkedIn Group

    What I imagine the INTP group description on linkedin to say: If you're looking for an individual who hates taking orders, finishes a task at the last minute, doesn't care about social niceties like bothering you about your day or saying "hello" when they come in in the morning, look no further...

    Well, you must understand that gender and sexual preference has a lot to do with how I'm answering. If you had a boyfriend that wanted to hang out with his ex-boyfriend all the time, this would strike you as somewhat inappropriate. No? I don't know. Maybe not. So a straight male hanging out...

    Honestly, you need to distance yourself like OG said. It's weird when a guy hangs out with a girl who has a boyfriend. I think it is at least. Especially when you're lurking around her house while she's getting it on with the bf. In fact, I usually would completely cut off communication with...

    Maybe she wants you to join in? This sounds just outright rude to me. If done one time, I'll give you a pass. But if this chick had sex twice, leaving you alone, this could warrant me never going over to your house again, or at least talking to you for a while. There could be several...

    ^ nicely put.

From what I've noticed, it would be unrealistic for someone on the INTP forum to...

    If everyone felt that their vote did not matter, no one would vote, and we would never elect a President. There have been many elections- not just on a local level- that have been decided by less than 100 votes. I imagine your point is that nothing will change regardless of who we vote in...

    Does Knowing One's Type Change Anything?

    Obviously, every human being is unique and who that person is cannot be determined by "type." People should not feel constricted by what MBTI says. I believe we are always in the process of becoming, so therefore, we have a choice in the type of human being we become through the actions we take...
