Default What do you like most and least about your type?

And the most amusing.

Most - For me, as INTP, I most like the fact that I can learn almost anything and see it a simple concept were others are still struggling to make sense of it.
Least - I would say the inability to form connections with people. But then I realised it doesn't really bother me that much most of the time. What bothers me the most is that I just lose motivation and give up on something for no reason other than that I lost interest.

Two sides of the same coin - I can learn anything really quickly, but will give up on it just as I'm becoming one of the best at it.

Most amusing - I have a head full of useless information and remember pointless details from years ago, but can't remember where I put my keys or why the hell I'm stood in this room.

Hard to disagree with that. I look insane when I burst into laughter at some train of thought I'm having. It's so much more entertaining than what when someone attempts small talk.

Most like my perception. Be it 'the bigger picture', seeing the core of an issue or brute-forcing my way through someone's bullshit. It's vary rare that my perception falters; I'm very usually on-point.

Dislike Sometimes it's hard to shift my arse into gear because I'm stuck in Ni-Zen mode. Said mode serves its purpose and most often I do get shit done... but compared to my ENTJ wife, I'm not very proactive at all.

I'm amused by... My sense of humour. I'm often amused by myself, too. A self satisfied twat... but meh.

Really? I thought INTJs were a lot like us INTPs, but more proactive and a lot better at saying the painful truth when needs be, and seeing through bullshit. (Though I can do that to some extent - trying to lie to me in person is like trying to tell someone it's not raining when they're stood out in it, be I usually can't be bothered to do anything about it or I'll just play along if it amuses me. Or, even better, play with them and see how far they'll take the lie.)

I know a few INFPs and usually find them quite pleasant and easy going. Plus they usually just let me be me and not have to pretend to be normal, so I wouldn't say self absorbed at all. Unless they have particularly strong feelings on the subject, and then everyone has to know. But to be fair, they don't seem to expect you to share those feelings.

Hate other INFP's (zerk gets a pass) when I'm an INFJ I hate other INFJ's as well.

I love myself though.

Do INTJs get the minds eye thing? I have a minds eye that can give me extremely clear mental images and can imagine very clear scenarios almost like simulations (like Einstein's thought experiments, I thought). It's like having a high powered graphics card in my brain. Or is just me?

Same thing. I think. Put me in a room with myself and I'll fight myself to the death for the right to be me.

Do love myself a lot. I'm fucking awesome.

Level of productivity etc. isn't type related, though generally I've noted that dominant judgers tend to be more inclined to executing their goals etc. Don't forget that INTJs are dominant perceivers. I'm known to colleagues as pragmatic because in work I get shit done, but friends and family know the true me - a navel-gazing asshat who wants to spend his time taking afternoon naps in the sun.

As for cutting through bullshit and telling harsh truths... yes. Both of those things - but there are myriad variations within every type.

I can go quite deep into the differences between INTP and INTJ given that my best friend is INTP (Jaffster on here, I believe). Both confirmed by SCIENCE and shit.

Personally, yes. My imagination is both highly visual and auditory. I create worlds within. That's why I spend 99% of my time wishing reality would fuck off ¨_¨ I have my own, and it's far more interesting.

Oh, and yes - INFPs do need to fuck off. Fortunately, I've only known a few in my time but holy shit. Without exception, they are the fucking worst. Even more annoying than ISFJs.

Interestingly, ISFPs get a pass. I boned one and everything.

The only type I cannot do is probably ESFJs. Total aliens. I was once stuck in a room with one. Half an hour was too dam much. I'm not sure who wanted to gone most, though. Me or him.

I've only met a couple of INTJs. But I've always liked them. I'd much rather straight talk then faffing around with niceties. I'd rather know where I stand. I don't like me, so I'm not gonna take offence if you don't.

While I find INFPs and possibly ENFPs perfectly tolerable, some feelers can be pretty annoying when they're wittering on about their feelings. God. Like recently, this guy called me in work. Needed a job done. I did it. And then he called my boss and said, "he did my job, but I just didn't feel like he wanted to." WTF? Why cares? I did your job. What? Where you expecting some sexual favours while I was at it?

Best thing: Getting to the bottom of things, look from multiple perspectives and focus on the long-term purpose.

Worst thing: loss of the childish naÔvity that for example an ESFP bartender or so would have.
When I think about it, I should start doing more not-intellectual geeky things maybe to serve this purpose.

Funnyiest thing: the more I get into depth of how nature, life and people work, the more I see the complexity, the responsibility and significance of everything in this picture because it all influences each other and sometimes I wonder how someone could ever make all those decisions.

If I were such in a room with myself, either it would be, "at last! Someone with half a brain that I can hand a decent conversation with!" or we'd just sit there and not have anything to say. Eventually, I'd have to challenge myself to a fight to the death just to see what would happen. I mean, who would actually win?

It's a lot like when you have a clear memory of something - only I control the imagery. To a certain extent. Sometimes it's just a random or the images just come. Like how I always envision your avatar talking. It even has a lot of facial expressions and gestures.

I know the INTP has very strong introverted senses so ours would likely be clearer than most. But I didn't know it was possible not to have any. I can't imagine it.

I suppose it's like how I wonder what it's like to have strong feelings all the time. I hear how vibrant and full of beauty the world is to others, but I can't imagine how you concentrate or get anything done with all those feelings. I just kind of don't have any 90% of the tmie. I'm just sort of neutral.

Best: knowing exactly how to be successful.

Worst: not following through with it.

Yeah it shouldn't happen since it should be a total type change Ti Fe Ni instead of Ne Fi Te but it feels like it does which is wrong.
