    The dreaded...... Sleep.

    Yes, the huge wave of stereotypes portray an absolute lack of time discipline, the stereotypes make us out to be 'night owls'. I've also read that the majority of us prefer evenings / nighttimes to persue our intellectual challenges. But what isn't clear, is how many of you suffer from being...

    How do my fellow INTPS handle arguments?

    Re: How do my fellow INTPS handle arguements? Internet arguments are easy, for me, though real life conflicts are a whole different story. I theorise than INTP's are possibly the most ably-equipped individuals to be internet trolls. 10 years ago, the default mode of disagreements / arguments...

    Favorite Books

    Recent books that were great reads... Books that shifted me into Ti mode, books that I didn't put down: - The Passage Trilogy by Justin Cronin (quite possibly my favourite books of all time) - Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - Black Fleet Trilogy by Joshua Dalzelle - I'm mid way through...

    INTPs - what are the types of your 5 best friends?

    My imaginary friend was an INTP, but he was a boring 'know-it-all' and didn't get my social queues to shut up.

    Not necessarily, we don't know if we won't know or feel anything after death. Nobody knows.

    Is the title: "Addiction" just to be let off easily?

    I was addicted to Tramadol for a while. That was a true, physical addiction. Withdrawal was horrible. Try taking it for a couple of years every day and then stop taking it. Then revisit this thread. There's mental addictions too, a friend of mine was mentally addicted to steroids. There's no...

    What are lower IQ people better at than high IQ people?

    Lower IQ people know more about celebrities and the latest happenings in the currently popular soap/TV show. Or is that just women? I'm confused.

    The Ricky Gervais Show

    I love Ricky Gervais (his standup is amazing, check his Noahs Ark material) - Karl Pilkington grates on me a little, I loved the original Idiot Abroad series but it all got a bit 'sameish'.

    What do you think of feminism

    Equality is here, legally speaking. At least so in the UK. But ideals still exist in our culture and society that mean that it still isn't equal. I met a girl recently who is a bit of a closet feminist, I find discussions with her to be invigorating. Why are women almost always expected to...

    Male INFJs

    I've no idea - in my experience every girl likes something different. You only learn to be a good lover by learning what your partner likes. Some like slow, passionate 'love making'. Others prefer more primal, vigorous 'rough and tumble'. Some like a mixture of both. Maybe I've just got a...

    Shall I stay alive

    Ask yourself, can things get any worse? If no, then you have something to look forward to I know EXACTLY how you feel, I experienced utter depression not too long ago (though not to the point where I contemplated suicide). That feeling of being alone is a terrible one. Have you considered a...

    What do think is your greatest flaw?

    Wine. And feeling depressed for 16 hours a day, the other 8 I'm a child whom is high on Serotonin. Also, having a huge pile of unopened mail because it doesn't look important. I'll open it one day.

    Gentlemen - How is your libido?

    How old are you? You need to push those boundaries, go and watch Sex in the City and then live the evening as a pseudo-extrovert. Ever since I learnt about the MBTI I have tried to lead a more balanced life, to be more carefree when out and in social situations. Alcohol helps. But talking...

    Gentlemen - How is your libido?

    I couldn't agree with this more. Asexuality is appealing, it would certainly allow for a more balanced life with more time for intellectual pursuits. Damn testosterone getting in the way, we should all become Eunuchs.

    Gentlemen - How is your libido?

    Interesting read. But I am sexually attracted to girls from the go, I think this is probably more accurate: ^ It usually is an and/and proposition, but bringing a new girl home doesn't have me thinking "Best get my pants off" as I'm walking through the door, completely opposite to what those...

    Telecommute / Work from Home jobs (organizing my thoughts)

    SEO is big business, have you considered that as a possibility given your IT background? - the only true way of working from an internet connection is by working for yourself.

    Gentlemen - How is your libido?

    Just to elaborate on the initial question, it seems like my friends around me want to go out, find a girl and get laid. I'm more interested in the depth of a girl and would probably get more satisfaction out of an evening lost in conversation (if she is interesting) than a night 'in bed'...

    Weird eccentric INTP stuff you do

    Don't want to be here, want to be somewhere else. Get to somewhere else. Don't want to be here, want to be somewhere else. Get to somewhere else. This is ok... No, I don't want to be here, want to be somewhere else. Get to somewhere else. Rinse. Repeat.

    What is your dopamine addiction?

    For me I find that it's the irregular things which give me the 'dopamine' feels. Like tidying the house, it doesn't happen very often but when it does I get those feels.

    Oh the Joy of being an INTP...

    High school is unfortunately a bad place for introverts (it was in the UK, anyway) – It just isn’t designed with people like you in mind. It gets better as you get older. As you are given more independence you’re ultimately allowed to grow into your introversion properly. At least that’s my...

    I just watched an episode of Big Bang theory

    It went well.

It was a nice experience. He looked ALOT...

    Which is better, to live with serious pain or to be dead without pain.

    If the pain means that I can get a prescription for some strong opiates then I guess pain isn't all that bad.
