yes I have a chinchilla with a name that is pronounced like "roo," as well as a parakeet who lacks a name of its own.

Playing guitar, constructing and painting models, introspecting, extrospecting, listening to music, writing notes in empty books, making triangles out of points in space, wasting time on dumb forums, having dreams, silently deconstructing myself, and eating.

*sigh....* bored as well......

What is your name?

Hmmm...what is the point?

Where are you from?

A cold, God forsaken, wild place full of heathens and satanists.

Currently living in a hot, God forsaken, wild place full of heathens and everything else under the baking sun.

How old are you?

I'm a seventies' child.....

What's your gender?

Female, per official definition.

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

The test was forced upon my person a couple of times. I came up as ......intj :phear:, but identify more with the INTP type.

How did you find out about this forum?

Googled INTP forum....

Do you have a partner/lover?

Yes. A very kind and understanding ENFJ.

Do you have any kids?

:phear:.....no.......


Do you have any pets?

No......I wish I could keep a cat...:(..... (used to have one back home), but they are considered a pest here, and kill too much native wildlife. My current avatar is of a Norwegian Forest cat, my absolute favourite. I am a bit of a naturalist, so currently studying a field where I can learn more about ecological systems.

Chinchillas! They're majestic creatures, it's almost as if they've all somehow been made exempt from compliance with the law of gravity/reality. Rumor has it they'll be extinct soon...opting for such comfortable fur was not a very well thought-through decision, was it Chinchilla President!? F*ck you! Your progeny's blood is on your hands!

I'll be sad (just kidding I hope they all die, whatever, in so many words, I've no vested interest in their continued survival as a species) to see them go.

I know it may sound rash, but this Chinchilla - while it's certainly adorable, this is clear - seems like a bit of a persnickety assh*le. Also, its hands! What!? They're like human hands, only much smaller (I feel like it might be capable of swinging a baseball bat or playing piano), surprisingly dexterous for such a dirty, soon-to-be-extinct rodent trash heap of an animal.

Hmmm....

We seem to have aquired this habit of derailing threads...oh what the heck...

Ok....demonstration of what said chinchilla would do to your head if he got his sticky little human-like hands on you:


Chinchilla-power! rawr!

Being 'understood' at a personal level.

I have very few close 'real world' friends but plenty of acquaintances.... particularly when they want their computer fixed. :(

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

Seriously?

No, but I consider having one.

What is the most difficult part of being an INTP?
There are so many thoughts entering my head that mental filters wear off so quickly. Even more of the fact that as an INTP, the conversations that I hear everyday are so dull. Thank God I have the ability to make people laugh. There's nothing like the challenge of making people laugh.

Well...I just took a bunch of online personality tests that all said I was. Certainly wasn't surprised when the descriptions made a point of noting that mine was a rarer type.

Barely have any spare time between work and college, and even then I have a lot of trouble relating to the general populace. I've done okay for myself in the past though.

Two dogs and two cats (all girls)

Cashiering at a grocery store. In college in hopes of becoming a physical therapist.
What is the most difficult part of being an INTP?
I only read the answers from the 1st page that were posted like two years ago, but that smilefornow person got it perfectly. I'm trapped in a vicious cycle where because I have so few friends I don't have anything to talk about to help me make any new ones. I'm typically great at first impressions, but then have nowhere to go from there. Especially frustrating on days when I wake up ready to make a change, only to be shut down again.

I was taking online personality tests in a desperate attempt to see what kind of career might suit me

I was searching for more information about INTP personalities on google, and this forum popped up. I think I spent a good couple hours reading through a bunch of threads the first time I saw it.

Not for at least another 12 years, lol, yikes

Yep I have two cats


What is the most difficult part of being an INTP?

A lot of the time I feel very stuck in my own head an unable to come out and face the real world. It's been kind of hard making friends for me, as I feel like it takes a very specific type of person for me to click with. I also am a total aimless slacker, which kind of sucks since I come from a family of successful and ambitious people who expect me to be the same way.

Taking tests and looking up descriptions. The INTP descriptions I've read really speak to me.

Yes. We've been dating for only about two months. I frequently try to type him. I really think he's an ENFP. He's definitely extroverted, and he's the touchy-feely type. But he does respect that I don't like to be cuddled all the time ;p.

Nope.

Writing, reading, consuming and analyzing news, video games, watching anime.

Introversion and that feelings are "all or nothing." I'm usually relaxed, but if someone crosses the line with me, I tend to show no mercy ;p.

I know that there will always be people out there who share my interests, I just have to look a little harder than most.

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?

On questioning some eccentric abnormalities I identified in myself, led me to question and investigate interpersonal interaction patterns and personality matching, which in turn led me to discover MBTI. And thus an INTP.

Reading (sci fi, I have tons of books), writing, photography, programming, Linux, Ham radio, travel and outdoor 4x4 getaways(the lonelier the better), computer gaming, astronomy, home theatre and movies (sci fi, kung fu and mindless action movies :-) ), cooking
(I'd add flying and piano, but Im a bit guilty for not keeping them up as much as I should)

How do you generate an income?
I am an IT consultant working for a major software (now recently also hardware) company. I get sent all over Europe to work on projects to deliver and troubleshoot software implementations for clients. Sometimes I might even get paid for it.

What is the most difficult part of being an INTP?
If I have to be objective about this, there are a couple of things which come to mind.
1)I really wish I had more luck with girls out there and having a partner. I'm not afraid of loneliness but there are times when I could really do with having some good company to share experiences with or have awesome discussions about my way out ideas and theories.
All the girls I meet think I'm weird and don't know how (don't want) to talk to me. Which is fine cos I usually think they're awkward and not very fun or interesting to be around in any case.
2) My work usually puts me in positions where I need to be more outgoing and I find myself getting acute Social Anxiety Disorder in a few of these situations. But I push it down and get on with what I need to do .
3) People complain that I analyze things too much, I am the destroyer of peoples happy theories, my train of thought is too fast and my ideas are too far fetched. While this is not directly an issue for me, it does make for some awkward or embarrassing comments at the few socials I actually attend.
4) I'm often called anti social, but thats just me trying not to make a fool of myself at social gatherings because conversation is not something Im good at, especially mundane stuff, and the fact that I don't seem to identify very well with >95% of the worlds population.

What is the most difficult part of being an INTP?

some say INTP, some say Aspergers, some say obsessive-compulsive
i say theyre all jealous
i say that they have such dependency on externalities that they have taken the stage by force and to serve their own ends are denigrating us
we who do not really get it - do not get why people would want to coalesce
we dont defend ourselves or our enviable state of normalcy
why would we - it's not our way
they, the noisy ones, set themselves, the dependent ones, as the 'normal', poor inadequate beings
the noisy ones think that they rule while we persist

Dying in childbirth is actually very unlikely unless you give birth in a third world hospital.
In fiction it's just a convenient way to produce orphans without raising further questions, that's why it is so popular.
