Default I just thought I was really weird.

Hello. Not completely sure what to say here - if I'd ever figured out how to introduce myself I'd probably do a lot better at social events.

I've pretty much just always been the daydreaming outcast who those closest to me have frequently referred to as the smarted person they know, and most others think is just strange but pretty harmless though very helpful apparently.

I found this whole MBTI thing thanks to Facebook, which suggested a page about INTJ's. Out of curiosity, I read through the posts giggling knowingly because no one else I know would get the jokes. I read up on it all in fascination and took the test a couple of times, which comes out strongly INTP. I also got a few other people I know to take the test as well, which gave some expected and weirdly surprising answers.

Since I became a single father a couple of years ago, I don't get out even more than I used to. I probably only have one decent friend outside work. My ex-wife tested as INFJ, but is also BPD so it didn't work out well. After ten years (But that's a whole thread of it's own, should I decide to share the distressing tale).

Basically, I've come here to find out if there really are people out there like me. I haven't met any before.

Hello and welcome,

I also joined this forums recently, with the purpose of finding like-minded people who I can exchange some ideas. You will definitely find people here who are smart and who likes solitude just like you are.

People here like to be alone, contemplating very deeply about pretty much anything (except emotions possibly, because there is no logical reason to have those?)

I would think intp and infj would be a nice couple, I am sorry that things didn't work out well for you.

I hope you find nice companionship around here

Nice to meet you.

We were for the first 5 years. She always said my lack of emotions balanced our her overly emotional nature. But it's long story.

No logical reasons for emotions - true. I practice medication to get rid of those things. I have been know to debate that they are not the be and end all; I never trust mine. But I've also learned to trust my intuition a little more as my initial thought I really wrong. I just have to analyse why before I listen to it.

Yes, we are here. You've found your actual home, which is defined as the place, when you have to go there, they have to take you in. :-)

I am just sitting here reading all these familiar stories while smoking my pipe. I would say I sympathize with them all but we all know that sympathy is not the right word. I do empathize because I've been there. I hope not to sound rude, but most of the time I do no matter what. I feel about emotions like the Borg, the Dalek, or Lt. Cmdr Data must feel. Curious and unfortunate things they are.

You ARE really weird! Everyone here is weird. Except for the people here who aren't weird. Those people are weird.

Well, I've been here long enough for you to make an informed decision.
That clears things up.

Is that why everyone here seems so normal and normal people are just bafflingly bizarre?

Yeah, let's just stay in here. Away from all those humans.
They're freaky.

Yes they are freaky ... then again aren't we all in our own way ?

Sadly (or not) this thing we call "existence" includes interaction with said freaks - also we can't just hide away, it doesn't solve anything. If you can't live with them then let's just try to survive for the time. Although sometimes that is also hard...
