    The Sixth Function

    This theory that Ni sort of rounding an INTP stack.... has been making some sense for me at lately at least. One thing I noticed about strong Ni users is that they have an ability to gain an intuitive understanding of something without spending a lot of time doing rote repetition. Some can't...

    New INTP ebook: The INTP Quest

    I can't remember, but don't his methods include a lot of interviews with different types and also INTPs? I thought he might be doing that as a part of his psychology job? If he's doing it all from his own head... it's actually rather impressive that he is broad as he is currently. I do...

    New INTP ebook: The INTP Quest

    Finally finished the book. I thought it was really good. It does lean more to what i was talking about though, where it outlines the concept of the intp quest more than giving methods of tackling the quest. But I still found it rather insightful. I do think it is totally possible that one...

    Maybe I'm thinking more of INTJ's and ENTJ's when I am thinking of Te. I think I know much fewer ISTJs. Have you found yourself faster than INTJ's and ENTJs?

    TiNe (INTP) - new profile

    I guess what I'm getting at is not that you solved the same problem specifically many times but you've spent a lot of time debugging and problem solving with code in general. And not with solving problems of your own emotions about where you'd like to visit or how the lawn should look. The...

    New INTP ebook: The INTP Quest

    About 2/3 of the way through. Finding it insightful so far. Will post more as I finish. It’s good but I’m not sure if it’s going to give practical advice or just outline the overall concept of the INTP quest?

    What should a INTP do?

    I would say... at least once we should pull off the stereotypical... "Showing up out of nowhere with a left field solution that saves the day". I've only done it a few times, but it's extremely satisfying. Seems like what we are built for.

    When is Ti most useful? Is it necessary?

    Not sure I follow how this applies to Ti vs Te methods exactly? I generally agree with this. But can you think of a specific example? Here's one I found on Elon Musk's "first principles" http://www.businessinsider.com/elon-musk-first-principles-2015-1 Essentially, his company needed to make...

    When is Ti most useful? Is it necessary?

    INTP's are becoming obsolete

    INTP's have always had it rough. It must have been much worse in tribal times, where pure physicality / ability to hunt and gather were most favored. Ironic though that in this age we are in one of the best times for an INTP to shine that ultimately we would be doomed again, and most likely...

    I've been reading a lot about Ti vs Te. I think I have a pretty clear understanding of what Te does and what activities that utilize a lot of Te would be. But for Ti while I feel though I understand what it is... I'm not clear on what activities exclusively use Ti. Here's a pretty good...

    Did I Imagine a Relationships Sub Section?

    I swear the other day I saw a "Relationships" section added to the Subforums in the "Within" area. Did I just imagine that or did it get put up and then removed for some reason? Can't seem to find any info on it. Perhaps it's a glitch in the matrix.

    Why do so many INTPs like anime?

    I used to like anime a lot when I was a kid. What I found so appealing about it was that compared to American cartoon shows on a the time, it was so EXOTIC, novel, and the plots would actually have a continuous story .. as apposed to a strictly "monster of the week" format. (Think Power...
