  1. Aphrodisiacs

    Mussels and clams are known to be aphrodisiacs, probably because of their high vitamin B contents. But seriously, for a guy to be stimulated there's no better way than exercise, sports, biking. Men with low libido don't exercise. It's a fact because I said so.
  2. INTP always intelligent?

    Thanks for all your answers. I would like to reply to everyone if I could. For now I need to think about t your answers first.
  3. INTP always intelligent?

    Every forum, every video always talk about INTPs being highly intelligent, especially at solving problems or puzzles. The older I get the more I begin to accept that I simply don't have the intelligence nor the mental stamina to solve complex issues. I switched my career from film making to IT...
  4. Cured my depression

    Interesting to revisit this post months later. I strongly believe you can heal yourself. You just have to admit that there's something wrong with you and then continuously make efforts to better yourself. PS: did anyone watch the polar bear video?
  5. Thoughts on How to Shut Down a Salesperson

    Having been a salesperson I somewhat empathize with most salespeople. If they sound like they hate their job I usually tell them I've been where you are and I advise them to try to get an ethical job so they can enjoy a happy life. As soon as they resume their sales pitch I just tell them thank...
  6. Cured my depression

    Very interesting replies in this post. I seem to have hit a nerve... One thing is clear through my extensive research on this topic: as humans we can only cure depression and traumas through both mind AND body. Youtube: trauma bear. That's how animals get over a trauma. We all have...
  7. Western Work Ethic

    I'm German and Germans work very efficiently and focused while we're at the office. When we come home we spend time with our families. A lot of Americans, on the other hand, see everything in life as a job. They work long hours and when they come home they work out or work on a side business...
  8. INTP as Sales Person

    I did both car sales and inside sales. In car sales I did pretty well because the customers appreciated my honesty and the fact that I didn't push them or lie to them. I sucked at inside sales and absolutely hated it. I was the worst sales person on the best team. So depressing going to work...
  9. Cured my depression

    These things are definitely not in abundance on this forum, bro.
  10. Cured my depression

    Typical intp mistake on my part: I wrote something without intending to be mean but it came across as if you had hurt my feelings. Glad I can get away with something like this on this forum.
  11. Cured my depression

    Aren't you an intp who should be able to think outside the box and stay logical and tune out any preconceived notions? Your comment is like saying, you better stay away from listening to Michael Jackson songs because he was accused of molesting children. Or you should think twice about laughing...
  12. Cured my depression

    If you're an intp like me you've probably suffered from depression multiple times in your life. But hey, this video cured my depression: Youtube search: "Exercises For Depression [OSHO Dynamic Meditation]"
  13. how to not waste your life

    Wrooong. Get married :)
  14. Information overload

    I tried Headspace and I do feel much better after only 3 minutes. Do you know if there's a comparable app that is free or costs less? It's ridiculously expensive.
  15. Information overload

    This and the comment above are super helpful. I do enjoy biking although it mostly satisfies my physical state, less my mental state. Meditation sounds exhausting and boring to me but perhaps it's exactly what I need? Idk. I already don't have a Facebook or Twitter but I do check my mail and...
  16. Information overload

    I find myself never taking breaks from taking in new information. I'm glued to my phone, my video game, or browsing through apple tv. While I'm glued to the screen I'm always thinking about how much better I'd feel if I just stopped watching and did something else. I think I'm afraid to face...
  17. Success Story

    Hi Everyone, I've asked for career advice on this forum many months ago. I had a short filmmaking career that didn't fulfill me. Then I was in sales for two years. Car sales then inside sales at a cool startup company. I was never happy and totally exhausted. Even though I put my mind to it...

    Will shortly write something in the into job thread.
  19. What's best for memory. Had options, now confused.

    Yep, unfortunately there are no shortcuts. Your brain is a muscle that needs to be trained daily. What you could do is experiment with your learning style. Try cramming the day before the exam. If that fails try studying a little bit every day. Drugs are drugs. They may have a temporary...
  20. Secret Birthday Language

    Another saggitarius here! Week of the Titan! How about you? P.S. my wife is compatible with me according to the book (website). Definitely accurate :)
  21. I know this isn't normal

    BrBaFan225 thanks for your transparency. The questions that Rook asked were the key questions that need to be asked when anyone has violent thoughts. Now I'm not a scientist but it's clear that it's the drugs that cause you to think violently or at least amplify those thoughts significantly...

    What is the benefit of swearing?
  23. When did you realize that you are gifted

    I wanted to counter the idea that hard work and persistence will always pay off. I gave this way of thinking a shot and tried working in sales. There is no other profession where the harder you work the more money you can make. However, because of me being an intp and not getting stimulated by...
  24. Genres of games INTPs are good at?

    I used to be a pro at counterstrike. Totally addicting and some nights when I was so tired from playing and my reserves kicked in I was literally unbeatable. I remember playing cs_office. Me vs. 6 enemies. I had the deagle and a full mag. 5 headies, 1 regular kill. All with one magazine (7...
  25. Slow mind, but intelligent?

    I can soo relate! I just can't multitask and hate it when there's people interrupting me or talking next to me. I have to process and take apart every conversation and there's simply not enough time in the day to do that and I can't just close my eyes at work in a silent space for 30 minutes...
  26. Looking for a friend

    Hi Rob, This forum will help you find out more about yourself and find like-minded people. However, you won't get the emotional satisfaction that you would get from having a real-life friend. If I were you I'd turn to your family (if you have one). 95% of the time they'll want to help you. In...
  27. Spare time - or lack thereof

    I'm working long hours in inside sales and can tell you that this is one of the worst professions you could ever go into (slowly making the switch to IT). For introverted people anything that requires reaching out into the world, especially talking and arguing with people, depletes their energy...
  28. The idea of religion

    Jaffa, Very interesting thoughts here. I used to think like you, too. The problem was that I was unhappy because there wasn't a real purpose in life. You live, you die, and then that's it. Made me frustrated so the topic of religion never let me go. The one thing that kept me coming back to...

  30. Help with Career

    Hey guys, It happened again! I did so much research that I'm clueless where to begin. I was going to take this Javascript course in September but now I'm reading everywhere that I need to learn HTML5 and CSS first. That would interfere with my goal in studying to be a QA tester in August. Do...
  31. Career change at 29

    Technical writing is largely automated these days and will become extinct. Forget traditional writing. Writing software is the new type of writing. There are multiple languages you can learn. It's no longer learning French, it's learning Ruby, etc. The traditional careers our parents are...
  32. 50 percent of INTPs make Less than $30,000

    This is 100% true. INTPs should be able to research/figure out where the next trend is and which skill they can pick up. Too bad I can only do it for others.
  33. Help with Career

    I wanted to update everyone on my progress since a lot of you motivated me to become more invested in software engineering. I've been learning Javascript and SQL on codeacademy but want to take the next step by taking a General Assembly course on Javascript in September to become really...
  34. Help with Career

    Just wanted to update all of you. I'm learning Javascript on codeacademy.com and yes, it feels like I'm in my element. The coding drives me nuts but in a good way. And it's nice to see the result of your code. Thanks for all of your inputs. I'll have to figure out how long it will take me to...

    One thing is for sure: there is a shortage of software engineers and thousands upon thousands of jobs to be filled. I hope they have night classes for coding in my area...

  37. Help with Career

    Haha sounds familiar. I was a camera operator on Gator Boys for a while, which was awesome in my mind but not fun when you were dealing with rednecks all day. I also had a kid at 25. Are you sure you're not me?? It's funny, my upstairs neighbor turns out to be solutions architect. He works...
  38. Help with Career

    Thank you everyone for your suggestions and thoughts. I looked into software engineering and developing. I have no idea whether or not I'll like it. @pyropyro and architect: That's a logical idea, yes. But it sucks making these promotional videos. You don't have a lot of independence...

    This post is mainly for those INTPs who have figured out their professional life. I need help figuring out the next step in my career. I'm an INTP who grew up in a world where being extroverted, detail-oriented, and able to make quick decisions was the only option. Wealthy neighborhood...
