    I'm actually currently dating with an infj. Her problem? She's too much... She's amazing but she's also crazy and clingy and horny. She cares for me, she breastfeed me with her amazing cities... The relationship is just out of this world. But then again, she might be an enfj.. the amount of...

    Hey guys, who amI exactly? Can someone tell me? I constantly score INTP but many people have pointed out How I might actually be an ENTP or anINFP instead. The reality is I might actually inbetween those three. What seem to be certain is that I'm some sort of an NP. I heard that ENTP were...

  6. Attention as the main social currency

    It's not really a question... Just an openended question.... I've always been attractee to why we give more or less attention to certain things or people...and lately the topic came back... Look at kids, dogs,...etc They are very attractive and get naturally a lot of attention, most of times...

  11. Attention as the main social currency

    I'm open to the idea that I'm missing on something. I used to not care about attention and more... I used to hâte all the attention... Yet i kept on having it( because people give it to people who don't want it...). When brainwashing started, things started to change.... Bd that's very funny...
  12. Attention as the main social currency

    Lately i've been also thinking about How people actually confuse attraction and attention.. or about How people fall in love with attention rather than someone.. Any thoughts?
  13. Attention as the main social currency

    Hey guys, I've been thinking lately about the notion of attraction and attention in the public Space. Lately i've been analyzing interactions in public Space and one thing struck me hard was... Attention(or mini love as I call it...). It seems as we live in a love/mini attention deprived...

    If anyone cares to hear it, let me know and I will continue to share but I have no problem being short either. Go for it man! No one will reprimand you here for being too long... I'm curious to hear in what ways you have changed and in what ways you still are the same!
  16. Ambitious?

    It's funny; when I was younger I could be seen and perceived as ambitious(mainly because of my dummy surrounding and the feelings of underachievement)... Now that i'm surrounded by truely hardworking, succesful, smart and ambitious people I actualy dn't feel ambitious anymore. Crazy. So yeah...
  17. Great career advice

    One day an old priest told me that a good job is something: 1° I'm naturally talented for/ skilled for. 2° I love 3° Earns some money Everyone wants point 3, but not everyone loves the same or has the same skills. The problem in our societies is that people who go for point 3 are valued...

  19. Do INTPs become more normal with age/maturity?

    Sure editor one! But how do you know the "I" is still there when everyone around behaves in the same range/spectrum of normality... It's by faking it that WE become and ultimately make it right?! Sometimes i feel anxious that i might eventually be stuck in the robe forever(and diluting my...
  20. Do INTPs become more normal with age/maturity?

    Smith, I'm happy sure or atleast I am by society's standards...i always have been in conflict with the notion/concept of happiness(and despised for a long time happy/overly happy people!)as advertized in our modern societies. I guess i don't lack anything substantial, so yeah I'm content! And...
  21. Do INTPs become more normal with age/maturity?

    What do you mean sinny? Do you mean that u used to be abnormal even to your own standards...? Funny hey! I guess it also has to do with the fact that WE are usually late/early bloomers? WE reach the developmntal milestones a bit later or earlier.... Which can cause some inbalance i guess. To...
  22. Do INTPs become more normal with age/maturity?

    Haha; i felt like a misfit for the first 25 years of me life; almost autistic in the beginning.Yet my desire to gain social power and social acceptance made me take certain life traditional choices... While it's true i prefere novelty.. Now here am I, late twenties and I actually feel normal...
  23. how did you study in school

    I never studied in high school( BUt I suffered probably from ADD, some sort of depression, and pathological daydreaming, pathological boredom...Etc). Sounds stereotypical, but I nevr did that shit... I began to study very late in life, but still I did it wrong. Matter of fact, there seem to...
  24. Rant: About cognitive bias?

    Of course it does.
  25. Rant: About cognitive bias?

    It seem to me that cognitive bias are everywhere; and contribute to a large chunk of our societal beliefs... some examples and their power. Black people are dumb(power: average) Muslims are terrorists/extremists(power: weak) White people are boring(power: weak to average) Beautiful people are...

    I'm particularly interested about cognitive biais, it seems to be everywhere. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cognitive_biases heck it out, there are so many cognitive bias. I'm curious to know if there is a science/ discipline studying them( philosophy maybe? neurophilosophy...

  29. Homeschooling: WHy not? Would you?

    It seems obvious to me that homeschooling would be the best way to have smart kids... Social skills? Can be deveopped by doing social activities( team sports, games,..etc).
  30. Homeschooling: WHy not? Would you?

    OK, i get that homeschooling takes time, money and effort. I'm also aware that developping social intelligence is important. But besides those, why not? Personnaly I've struggled the first 2 decades of my life with school issues( not enough autonomy, not enough time to explore the things...
  31. istp as a medical doctor

    To be even more specific; here are the result of a study about mbti types in psychology. The job of a psychologist is a bit different of that of a psychiatrist. WIth psychiatrist tending to be more of Thinkers than feelers; but all in all it's very close. ANd here are the results:Basically...

    Artsu Tharaz President? Anyone?
  34. A funny thing...

    I drop out but I always come back to my initial choice(the result is that I go slowlier than other people in that same path, but I've got something more(or less?), don't know what it is exactly..)... how do you call that? Semi drop-out? Or more like a round trip? I feel like dropping out is a...
  35. A funny thing...

    LOl; I had a pretty crazy school and (baby)career trajectory. Retrospectively, it appears to me that I consistently need a break every 4 to 5 years because I get some kind of nervous breakdown. I've heard that INTPs were notorious for their drop out rates and tendecies. I get it every 4-5...
  36. Universal basic income: Why not?

    I'm not an economist(far from that, heck, I hate everything that is related with money), but It seem obvious to me that capitalism is directly and indirectly responsible of a lot of pains in this world. Things could be exponentially improved if people had - if not a basic income- their basic...
  37. istp as a medical doctor

    Hey mate, there seem to be an unofficial consensus that Psychiatry is the ultimate intuitive career in medecine... Seriously, my guess is that NTPs followed with NFPs and NFJs make the best psychiatrists although the job is about the couple patient-psychiatrist, such that one combination can be...
  38. INTP: Intellectual rednecks?

    Lol seriously, why do INTPs date ugly girls? I never understood that... Check out the Albert Einstein wife, or the Lincoln's wife. Ugly and angry wives. The craziest thing is that they fought all the time. I heard that because INTP are bad at dating, they usually settle for the first arrived...
  39. INTP: Intellectual rednecks?

    Agree man. It's because we are the most laid back personality type; combined with the most logical. It makes for some mad features. We want to be competent and possibly succesful, but at the same time we are aware that our competence doesn't mean we are globally better than anyone...
  40. Confession of a hater.

    I know it seem irrational to harbour bad feelings but seriously look at the world; everything seem to go wrong and people are more and more aware that they are being exploited on a larger scale. The main argument is that nothing can be done because of lack of power of action; and that we...
  41. What is your excuse for not being vegan?

    My excuse is that changing takes time and energy that I don't have; and eating good vegan food cost alot( money, energy, time or both). But anyway, i plan to stop drinking, having sex, smoking, eating animals on a more or less short term. I know it's extreme but I don't feel like I need it...
  42. Confession of a hater.

    Of course I'm into dualism when it comes to such thing; I consider the love-hate couple to be similar to the light-darkness couple. Without one, the other cannot exist but I must admit that I'm not litterate enough to go further... the topic is too hard for me( too feelingish). Or I'm just...
  43. Confession of a hater.

    To hate? or to criticize? Yeah, me too, but isn't it what Ti is supposed to do? Trouble shooting! If you want to stop that, go into Ne-Fe dominant mode. It gets better.
  44. Confession of a hater.

    Sure it's a bit exagerated.... I'm trying to meditate on the function of the "dislike" and "hate" button, you know like in the yin and the yang. I'm sure disliking has a balancing function. As you can see, evrything I hate is everything that can potentially judge me or limitate my freedom of...
  45. Confession of a hater.

    Hate is a strong word. But I hate it. I hate the poeple around me. I hate people who come too close from me: ideologically as well as physically. I hate the people who think like me. I hate proximity. My family;the people who chose the same job as me; My " friends"; My neighbours; The...
  46. The reason why INTP fail in social settings?

    Have you ever thought about what makes an interaction with someone or with a social group succesful? I believe that that secret thing is : VALUE ADDITION. When you can come up with extra value in a group setting or an interaction, you are viewed in a positive light(for a moment of course)...

  48. Do INTP's enjoy sensual things?

    I have high scores in emotional and sensual overexcitabilities. Blame it on my 4 wing in 5w4? Dunnno but as long as I can remember I've always been a horny shy guy( and do love my fellow horny shy girls especially if they look hot and holly at the same time... I know bad bad !). I'm not a...
  49. Extent of Social Influence

    I'm also currently thinking about social influence.. It's such an incredible subjetc for the likes of oursleves, INTPs. I don't like to be influenced by people, unless I'm forced to do it in one way or another( Submission). The forces can be of different nature and of different intensity, but...
  50. PUA derail from "friend or more?"

    MMmh, PUA are great in that they use the behavioral quirks of human beings for their personal and legitimate interests. The more power to them. The greatests things I've learned with PUA is what many people instinctively know(just not experienced as uch as experienced PUA) and can be reduced...
