    Motion pictures v. Stationary words

    When getting answers and tutorials from the web, I generally lean towards the written version. I find it easy to spot exactly what I need from an organized text. I find some youtube videos frustrating because the information is either near the end of the long clip, or I realize after watching...

    Do you prefer smartphone or desktop?

    I'm curious INTP users: If you had to make a choice between smartphone and desktop, which would you use, and which could you live without? An elderly couple were thinking about getting a computer or tablet, and asked me which they should go with. Instead of directly answering, I named pros...

    Does smoking help with stress and anxiety?

    You're right, I went off on a tangent, and it wasn't very helpful. My apologies, cosmicflow.

    Does smoking help with stress and anxiety?

    We know anxiety is a switch in the central nervous system, and the body is then flooded with some adrenaline. It does this when it detects danger so that we take immediate action to resolve the threat. Couldn't we state that anxiety contrarily happens with a very hopeful lens? If I'm running...

    Does smoking help with stress and anxiety?

    That argument is a bit overgeneralized. There are many different causes, and even some counter-examples to your point. In some cases there are underlying health conditions. More common is being overloaded with work, deadlines, and obligations. Lots of people require some form of outside help...

    What do you base your values on

    There are many things I don't like. For example, a bunch of people congregating in a parking lot pretending to be apes(true story), or sharing misinformation, etc. But because I'm somewhat of a libertarian, I'm glad that people have the freedom to do whatever based on reasonable limitations...

    Does smoking help with stress and anxiety?

    Anxiety itself is a normal mental function. Almost everything living experiences it. It's much more harmless than it feels. It's originally there to keep you safe. Something needs changing when you experience it where no threats are present. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help. Or as...

    How, what to program?

    I'm curious if you started programming your game. How far did you get? What kind of game were you looking to create?

    What do you base your values on

    Took me awhile to think about this. Way too many situations get bottlenecked into the limits of a few words. But after some thought, they all seem to be unified by the foundation of relationships. Relationship between self, ideas, life, people, and meta-relationships. A striving for...

    Memory

    As far as I can recollect, I believe we just met. Maybe it's because values are: talking = bonding, silence = awkwardness. And then topics keep triggering the story. Idk, maybe there be a memory impairment. Or maybe I'm actually talking about myself. :noddy: You could try asking...

    Experiential proof/disproof of type

    I'd say an imagination is almost limitless. You could imagine anything. How would you describe someone's results which was different than your own? I tried the experiment but couldn't get to the 10min mark. As soon as I closed my eyes, I felt a little dizzy. Then I thought that the...

    Experiential proof/disproof of type

    How does that prove that MBTI types exist? I've been thinking about the proof of MBTI lately (or cog. functions, whatever). I thought about people guessing other people's type, and comparing with actual test results. Is it just me or do people often guess very wrong? And to add to that...

    INTP Perceptions of ISTP and Relations of Benefit

    Same here. I like them, but sometimes I get the annoyed look and get told I'm weird. I really like that they are predictable and socially harmonious.

    Psychosis

    I've had a brief and terrifying one about 3 years ago, and some others before that. I'm losing my memory of the details, but I remember things coming out of the sky and talking to them and getting lost and not knowing when and where I was...etc. Funny story, I remember a nurse coming to check...

    Motivation issues

    It's good to get constructive critique for the ideas. Even if you're right, it'll help to clarify why. I think I understand your situation. It's like trying to demonstrate a piece of a puzzle, but only you have seen the picture where it came from. My bizarre ideas spark from a compilation...

    Intellectual vs. Pseudointellectual

    If I could modify hig's defintions: Pseudointellectuals: The end goal is to appear smart to their peers. Genuine Intellectuals: The end goal is to hold a refined truth. Maybe too simplistic, I'm not sure right now.

    Intellectual vs. Pseudointellectual

    I apologize, but that didn't sit well with me. I think it's because pseudo-intellectuals really do believe they are deep, researched, rigorous and complex. And there's many things that can be stated which are true and not trivial but also simple and not well researched. Oh, I just used the...

    Intellectual vs. Pseudointellectual

    I remember there was a night where I was hyped up on the term and felt like throwing it around. I read some article with a mention of Tom Wolfe. That's not very glamorous of me, but I do try being honest. I totally agree with this original post.

    Why INTPs Can't Finish Things

    I can relate to the not getting things done part. I thought it was a more common problem with people in general though and not just INTP's. There seems to be a lot of self-help stuff about it. I have a lot of big goals floating in circles in my head. Let's say I was to crack down on one...

    Some analysis of bullshitting in arguments.

    I agree with you. Their argument would be ad-hominem if they pull in their grades into it. I'm a little fascinated with people holding on to misinformed information. (Actually I'll admit, I have an obsession over it) I try to see it from their side. I sometimes think It would be unreasonable...

    INTJ

    Don't people use all cognitive functions? I thought our type just represents our default /most used mode. I can't see why some people can't be in between two modes. Maybe you are a hybrid of INTP + INTJ, and can flip flop easily between the two. The RC system would classify you as a INT!

    Some analysis of bullshitting in arguments.

    I'm having a hard time following this topic. I think facts and evidence is what really matters. Also clarity and understanding. The feelings of superiority are meaningless. I mean, in regards to the superiority, It's short-term gratification. Just let 'em go.

    what is the difference between adult and children

    Childhood to adulthood is just a smooth continuous gradient. I wouldn't know where to draw the line. The difference I come up with is I find kids are more forgivable than adults. Also, are we using our own brain's capacity to evaluate others? I find it's often not productive to even guess...

    Putting the AI on the moon

    I'd really like to know from someone who knows a bit more about AI, could it be possible that AI would never go rogue? I maybe could see something strange arising from quantum computers, but for the time being, how can a program do something which it wasn't instructed to do? I know the basics...

    INTP -ish. Been stalking for a little while, and enjoy reading the conversations. I want to join in some of them, maybe. I have small fleeting interests that come and go, but often are abnormal. Right now, I'm into making incense with natural materials. I was a little disappointed...
