  1. can i have any suggestions for career? (career counselling)

    I'm gonna try to take a different approach and focus on your psychological symptoms: Drinking a lot of alcohol definitely can dent your focus the next day, even if you don't feel hung over, in my experience. You can order adrafinil (modafinil precursor) online legally, a non-amphetamine...
  2. Struggling in Dentistry, help?!

    Re: STRUGGLING IN DENTISTRY, HELP? I think plumbing would be a hell of a lot more fulfilling for the average INTP than dentistry.
  3. Overeducated unemployed

    Go back to school yet again for IT, computer science, nursing, or clinical lab science Try to find a position teaching community college even if it's in the middle of nowhere Get qualified to teach high school Work as a freelance tutor
  4. INTP & Naturalist... any ideas?

    I've had a passion for ecology since my teens. I'm 28 now and have been working for the family farm since then. I have an associate's degree and it's time to finish my bachelor's. I want to have a reasonable middle class income in a few years as well as a sense of relative expertise in a...
  5. INTP+ENFJ possibility.

    My mom is an ENFJ. We get along great. Seamlessly. We could work together well on a regular basis. I respect and admire her caring, concern, organization, and combination of selflessness and attention to self-care. She's also capable of being quite rational, but is also very gullible because of...
  6. Should I start smoking cigarettes

    Wow, this is making taking up adderall look good in comparison!
  7. INTPs - what are the types of your 5 best friends?

    INFJ ENFP INTJ ENFP INTP INTP INTP INxJ My ex-girlfriend was an ISFP Strong sensing types are usually offputting to me.
  8. Would you rather be an INTJ?

    I'd rather be an ISTP. They seem a lot happier and more willing to embrace the true Ti self. Living in the moment is great. INTJs are often fairly miserable. Being an intuitive sucks for fitting into society! Though when I put what I consider to be the ideal personality into a personality...
  9. INTP male / ENTJ female

    ENTJs are usually people whom I'd aspire to be, who I find really interesting and stimulating and tend to be attracted to. I think dating an ENTJ would make my life miserable because I'd be full of self-hatred for not being as capable or ambitious as the ENTJ. Most ENTJs would also label me a...
  10. INTP: Intellectual rednecks?

    Some INTPs are born into the working class. I was not, really, but I kind of fell into it after quitting college more than once. I don't usually like real hardcore rednecks, though. They tend to be bigoted, sexist, completely unwilling to admit they are ever wrong, and really insecure right...
  11. Avoidant Personality

    I used to be avoidant as hell and I still am trying to unlearn it, but I had a couple of interactions with real physical threats from other people which really put my anxiety about other people in perspective and helped decrease it a lot. Three teenagers in the poor neighborhood where I live...
  12. What would happen in a house full of sensors?

    Once I recognized that I had enough friends and was not going to move somewhere new unless I absolutely had no choice, I realized I didn't really need to make new people I meet like me anymore. Since I usually fail miserably at that anyway, it's been liberating. I've almost shifted to an...
  13. Working in corp vs academia vs govt

    Seconded! Great option for INTPs since we generally value freedom over convenience. Regarding academia, please read this: http://100rsns.blogspot.com/ (100 Reasons Not to Go to Grad School) I have considered government employment or working for a defense contractor because they're much more...
  14. Phd in Food Stamps: What to do?

    Thanks for that last paragraph and everything you've written regarding your experience in school studying CS. Too much time reading Quora may have left me unrealistically intimidated. As for getting an Econ PhD, well, that's what I want to do in the long run. Getting the degree does not violate...
  15. INTP doctors or dentists?

    You clearly are unfamiliar with the concepts put forward by Jacob Lund Fisker [INTJ] of the Early Retirement Extreme blog. He answers just about every possible question you could have. LOL. I am 27 and pay my own way in the world. I make $10.45/hr, work less than 40 hr/wk most weeks, live in...
  16. Phd in Food Stamps: What to do?

    I appreciate your sympathetic and informative response. To be clear, I am not really interested in working for an existing institution unless it is committed to my principles, except for a little while in order to learn and gain experience. I know there is a lot of interest in sustainable...
  17. INTP in business?

    I think accounting is a good field for INTPs. Accounting is a very diverse profession and there are lots of specialties that would be interesting to INTPs, such as auditing. I find being a Full Charge Bookkeeper (the sole bookkeeper for a small business who handles everything) a decently diverse...
  18. Help picking a college major

    Major in self-liberation. That is, major in an occupation that can free you from the shackles of self-hatred and limitation imposed upon you by other, more dominant personalities by providing you enough income to become quickly (5-10 years) financially independent. Major in something that...
  19. Ambitious?

    INTPs need to free themselves from the strictures of standard employment and realize their own power as masters of their own time and destiny. Only when we are in a position to utilize our innate strengths as free agents, not beholden to bureaucracies or authority figures above us in a...
  20. Phd in Food Stamps: What to do?

    Here's my view, since I eventually want to get a PhD in economics, probably 10+ years down the road. I want to study ecological economics. Ecological economics is kind of a pariah field, and employment is nonexistent. I want to study and develop political economic theory for long-term...
  21. INTP doctors or dentists?

    Save up a bunch of money with your high paying dentistry job, then retire once you have anywhere from $300,000 to $1,000,000 in the bank (divide your savings by 30, and that's how much you get to live on per year for the rest of your life) and live a low-cost lifestyle like INTPs/INTJs generally...
  22. How to help IxTP friend

    Possible, possible, probable, and improbable in my book. But yeah, I see your point. I really don't know. He hasn't asked for help, it's just something I think about. That is indeed possible, and I would respect that. It seems unlikely, but I cannot be sure. Thanks a lot for the really...
  23. Best video game for INTP

    Civilization II is the timeless classic INTP game, with all its approbation from Ran Prieur, whom I take to be some sort of role model and want to ape in every way (google him) Civ 4 is pretty alright too.
  24. How to help IxTP friend

    My friend is an IxTP. He's 27, a probable virgin, and has worked at a pizza place for the last 10 years. He seems pretty depressed much of the time. He's also voiced his concerns about his life in one of his more lucid, expressive times after tripping on acid. Now of course, I am not...
  25. Strong Fe

    I feel like I have a pretty well-developed Fe, but if I am not careful it can indeed be infantile and all-or-nothing. Either that, or what I imagine to be my Fe really is Fi--whenever I take the cognitive functions tests, my Fi is way stronger than Fe (usually 2nd place after Ti, or 3rd after Ti...
  26. Kava for fun and profit

    Hey everyone, I'd just like to tout the benefits of kava kava root for INTPs, especially for those of you who have social anxiety issues, and live in places where it is legal. It also can make me feel like my emotions are more clear, helping deal with emotional repression. It helps my affect...
  27. No idea what I want to do.

    I would argue that you should keep on what you're doing for a year or two and save up money. It may well start to flow better for you (what my personal experience suggests). Spend as little as possible, and you should be able to put $35,000 in the bank per year, easily. That's enough to pay for...
  28. Are INTJ's better?

    My INTJ friend is loved for being zany and self-confident, and sort of agreeable with other people; while often seeming quite self-centered in small ways. He has a pretty single-minded focus on his musical abilities which has led to excellent skill and vast knowledge in that realm. He likes to...
  29. Lets create an INTP society (Project Noah's Ark / Critical Mass)

    tl;dr: Intentional communities never keep their kids anyhow and have to keep their numbers up by attracting new members; INTP kids are more likely to stay; it won't last more than about 100 years anyway even if things go great Most children born in intentional communities don't stay there...
  30. INTP as a ruler

    I'm an INTP (I have no doubt about this) and a few years, I might end up taking over ownership of a family light manufacturing business with about $2 million in sales and about 15 employees. I have a background in accounting already though I haven't finished school yet. Don't know how that would...
  31. Lets create an INTP society (Project Noah's Ark / Critical Mass)

    yeah, it's a hilarious idea, and also sort of a reasonable one. I get along great with other INTPs I know, even if it may take awhile to get anywhere close to them. Even the one seemingly rather unintelligent IxTP I know operates in a way that is quite compatible with me. In my experience...
  32. Accountant wanting a career change at 28

    Good luck finding something meaningful and non-fake in this society, as long as you want to earn a middle class income. I work for my family's farm for $10/hr, and that is quite meaningful. I can be myself and have flexibility, do a huge variety of tasks including some bookkeeping and business...
  33. intelligence is overrated, ignorance is bliss.

    OP: It really depends on the group of people. Some large groups of people have quite intelligent discussions. Most large groups of people are stupid, because the general level of discussion in a group tends to get dragged down to the lowest common denominator in order to make people more...
  34. Thorium-Powered Vehicles

    Of course, now that I bothered to post about the thorium laser thing, I found an article debunking it... http://www.embedded.com/electronics-blogs/readerschoice/4311667/Its-official-we-are-a-nation-of-idiots
  35. Thorium-Powered Vehicles

    Note that the original article is NOT discussing nuclear reactor-powered cars. It is referring to generators based on electricity generation by thorium heat-producing lasers. http://www.gereports.com/thorium-lasers-the-thoroughly-plausible-idea-for-nuclear-cars/ There is definitely a lot of...
  36. Where will you be in 2045?

    I'll be 57, and living in a secular monastery built on my land in an isolated corner of eastern North America, with the forest I planted 20-30 years prior of fruit and nut bearing trees and shrubs growing tall around us. We secular monks will spend time working together to take care of the food...
  37. Perhaps: An INTP's Blog

    Of course a degree is not at all a mark of actual intellectual merit or skill. It's just a credential that allows you to be given a bit of credit for the abilities you already have. Not having a degree in a good technical field will probably mean that for most of your life, you will be...
  38. The option of an Intp dominant society: How bad do we want it?

    I think INTP rulers might make the nation more fun and less stressful. Most SPs would like the freedom and relaxed attitude of our nation, while wondering why their rulers are such dorks and blather on about the boring philosophical issues behind our decisions. SJs would absolutely loathe us for...
  39. Surveyors?

    So I'm a second year college student, currently planning to major in CS, which many of you have highly recommended for INTPs and which I find to be of some interest. I have not taken any formal courses in it yet (i'm currently at my local community college which does not offer it). My biggest...
  40. Lurker Finally Participates

    Hi everyone, I've been lurking this place for a while now. It's time to actually post. So, for the edification of anyone who is interested enough in who I might be to care, I'll tell you a bit about myself. I'm a 24 year old part-time community college student, working for my family's organic...
