    Need dating advice as a male ISFJ

    ^ yeah true. Not so much an explicit goal. More important to just not get bogged down by trying to pick up girls, but rather just engineer an increased possibility for the desired outcome, and enjoy the journey.

    Need dating advice as a male ISFJ

    Bingo! @Animekitty , my advice to you is this, and I'm going to keep it simple: Phase 1: Attend planned social gatherings. How you find these is entirely up to you (meetup.com has been mentioned, but just attending something where there will be other people will do - maybe go to a cooking...

    Actuary or Engineer for INTP as career?

    I’d advise against engineering, unless you desperately want to do some specific thing. If you’re not 100% sure, it’s much more beneficial to start off in something much more broad and specialise later. The trade off is that it’s much more practicable to narrow down from a broader field than it...

    Would you sell your education?

    Fuck it. I’m over it. I’ll sell it for $10mil ($1m for each bachelors and $2m for my masters, and $6m for my industry experience) and start over in tech. Any takers?

    Being Misunderstood

    If people are raging at you when you talk (you even recognise that you’re a long-winded talker) then the problem is probably in the way you speak, and looking for validation from other INTPs is not going to help, but rather reinforce the negative trait you’ve developed. Speak more concisely and...

    benzodiazepines

    While somewhat effective as a short term solution, an unhealthy crutch long term. Pharmaceutical remedies are not the solution to anxiety(/depression). Probably better off exploring therapy.

    Ego

    Just want to throw this out there. I’m Cog’s age, and the advice Cog posted is fairly close to the advice I’m given from those a decade my senior (35-45s). —————— You’ve got a long way to go, kiddo. It gets better, don’t worry. You’ll overcome these problems, and new ones will take their...

    Why INTPs Can't Finish Things

    Hey yeah! Wtf is this about? I have the same problem! I’m like, constantly buried with multiple projects (most people at my level have 1 or 2, while I seem to have between 5-10 at any given time). So I somehow manage to keep my head just above water, somehow suspended in this constant state of...

    Why INTPs Can't Finish Things

    I 100% relate. I’ve also had the epiphany, exactly as you describe. My existence has been mostly geared towards trying to fix it since 2013. Furthermore, I’m currently in therapy for anxiety related to the aforementioned. It seems futile. I hope we can all one day overcome this crippling...

    The Character Analysis Thread

    It’s a community where we can all get rich together. We’ve been accused of being a pyramid scheme, but it’s nothing like that - the model is actually an upside down pyramid. A DIMARYP! And all the money funnels down to us, the people! Who’s with me?

    Only one thing I’d change about the scenario: RB wouldn’t be naked. I’d at least let him have some dignity and outfit him in one of my spare gimp suits. I’ve got all sizes, so he’d be comfortable.

    what is the difference between adult and children

    I think this is one of those fundamental truths that everyone comes to realise at some point. The adults don’t know anything. It’s all something we’re led to believe when we’re children to keep us in line and keep the hierarchy alive. I read recently somewhere, and I’ll have to paraphrase...

Okay, you’re walking on the sidewalk, you...

    Social Axiety

    You’re just an awkward kid. Sounds a lot like me at 17. My advice: Put yourself in more social situations over the next few years. Get a job where you’re talking to people every day. It’ll eventually work itself out, as long as you’re always making at least incremental improvements. Like...

    You and Learning Disabilities

    Just wanted to say I relate to this very strongly. Nothing noteworthy to add, other than I have developed a kind of learned sloppiness, where I’ve realised that in the sheer mass of shit to get through, things can’t always be perfect. I relate very strongly to the lightbulb thing.

    I’ve got to stop being lazy with explaining events. I was diagnosed with ADHD not from an interview alone, that was just screening.

    I have ADHD-PI. I just like calling it full-blown ADDs because it makes me chuckle.

    I’m diagnosed with full-blown ADDs. It’s a bit shit, but with proper management, it works out okay. It is hard to keep up the proper management though, and it only takes one link in the chain to break and everything falls apart. The repeated failure has really forced me to come to terms with my...

    No, you're thinking of either social media in general, or shitty blogs. Good blogs are a collection of good ideas or just pieces of writing that are too short to publish in a book form. (Except for Wait But Why, where blog posts are often book length :kodama1:)

    Adverse? I prefer to think of the quotes as more of a cautionary tale. As for the toddler having a gun, I didn’t give it to him. It’s another cautionary tale.

    The Advent of Virtual Immersion

    I'm actually pretty keen to get onto it now since I (finally) tried a decent headset (oculis) the other day at a design museum overseas. I was impressed at how not-vomity it was, which is what had turned me off VR in the past.
