Female.

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

2 years ago, I took a test that pegged me as an INTJ. After extensive research and learning gigantic amounts on MBTI and just sociology and psychology in general, I have concluded that I am an INTP.

Yes. I have been dating an ENFP for a little over a year. Very enjoyable relationship with lots of opportunity for both of us to grow.

Do you have any kids?

No, and I don't plan to. I would make an awful parent.


Do you have any pets?

Two dogs and one cat. All three are my fluffy babies that I will miss too much when I leave the house in August.

I am not INTP. INTP is me.

How did you find out about this forum?
I stumbled across it in an attempt to determine the veracity of Cognitive Function Typology.

Do you have a partner/lover?
Most that are worthwhile are unwilling. I find the alleged benefits not worth the trouble.

Do you have any kids?
At the moment, I'm hoping I never do.

Do you have any pets?
I can barely take care of my own basic needs, how can I be expected to take care of another animal?

Which hobbies absorb you the most?
Music and songwriting, learning, constructing worlds and characters and stories in my mind (never externalizing them, though), learning everything, ultimate frisbee, philosophy, traveling, and everything else at one point in time.

Hardest thing about being INTP?
Disagreeing with myself. Never knowing for sure. Nihilistic cessation. Addiction to paradoxes. The loneliness (when I'm honest with myself). Incredible self-awareness that makes me doubt the authenticity of everything I say and do. The unfortunate need for something as irrational as love. Self evaluations.

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

That still remains to be seen, but a visual typist recently gave me INTJ which I used to get typed as until I took an official MBTI test. That gave me INTP, but it gave me a 1 out of 30 for P.

No, I don't like kids.


Do you have any pets?

I have had several pets, mostly cats. I had a cat named Leon. He was the best pet you could ask for. He wasn't neutered and was an indoor/outdoor cat. He liked to give us "presents" late at night. Seriously that cat was a mean beast. He would kick the shit out of any other cat that he came across. R.I.P. I currently have a dog named Lucy -one of the laziest animals I've ever seen.

I've got both X and Y chromosomes, and I'm perfectly comfortable with that.

How did you find out that you were INTP, or other type?
I took the Myers-Briggs test on HumanMetrics, and I normally get either INTP or ENTP. On different tests, I've gotten INTJ and ESTP.

How did you find out about this forum?
Good question.

Do you have a partner/lover?
I wish. I could definitely make some booty calls if I wanted, but that wouldn't make me any less of a loser. Call me naive, but I'm looking for a woman who makes me happy, and I think a good one is worth waiting for.

Do you have any kids?
See above.

Do you have any pets?
A cat.

I plan on attending tech school to learn CNC machining, and then later to college. While in college, I'd want to study something practical like mathematics or engineering, not liberal arts, philosophy, Women's/Ethnic studies, or my personal favorite, Social Justice and Peace Studies. If I already had a good paying job, I'd probably study economics or political science. I don't consider myself a very idealistic person, I try to focus more on practical ideas to change the world.

I was also considering joining the air force. I know that the military isn't the best place for NTP types, but it would give me some great rhetorical leverage later in life, and I certainly think it would be something I could be proud of. I was raised in a very conservative family, I have many family members who are/were in the military and I still hold a lot of right-wing sentiments, though not necessarily beliefs.

I have a daughter on the way.

Which hobbies absorb you the most?

Sid Meyer's Civilization series. Amongst many other hobbies I could never really break my addiction to this game. I spend WAY too much time playing whatever is the most current version of the game.

How do you generate an income?

I'm a US Border Patrol Agent.

Hardest thing about being INTP?

Where to begin? I think that being an INTP is more of an affliction. I wish (and have tried) to change the way that I am. But I guess one cannot change their own nature. I would say the hardest thing is always being the square peg in the round hole. Always being dissatisfied with whatever I have and always sabotaging myself.

Our 12th grade psychology teacher gave the test to the whole class. He told me"I think you'll be happy with your results.". I sneered.

I googled for INTP everything.

Do you have a partner/lover?

I'm seeing an ISTP. I enjoy the company, but can't really get into it. If I weren't leaving in a month I would have broken up last night. My N is unappreciated - considered adorable in small doses, and downright unnecessary in larger ones.

Do you have any kids?

No.

Do you have any pets?

Not anymore. Actually I have never owned a pet now that I think about it.

Learning about stuff. And thinking about everything.

Hardest thing about being INTP?

The loneliness, not really feeling connected to anyone around me. Maybe it sounds arrogant but Im easily bored by most people, I just not really interested in what most people like to talk about :/ And the fear that Ill always feel like that, that ill never find 'my people'.

Where am I from? I can't claim a hometown. Midwestern values at heart and have traveled the globe.

I'm a female and well-preserved at 37. Must be my love of vino

How did I find out I was an INTP? College psych classes back in the day. Thought I was a little bit different than other chicks:)

Pets? I have several beasts that would maul a man if he broke into my home. I also carry and can patch up that unintended gunshot wound. Joking. To some degree.

Hobbies? I play pc games like skyrim and try to get girls:) Not really playing off your comment

Work? I'm in the medical field.

Hard thing about being an INTP Can't tolerate small talk. I don't care about gossip. I have no interest in what the neighbors are doing

Hardest thing about being INTP?

I always took the approach that when things really suck it's because I, as an individual, was responsible somehow, usually by a past action, negligence, or that there is something screwed up with who I am/my personality that was specific to me. It never occurred to me to blame the umbrella INTP classification.

How did you find out that you were INTP?
I was linked to one of the MBTI tests through another website, forgot all about my type, then revisited it when everyone in my gifted class at school had to take it (as well as such tests like learning style test, multiple intelligences test, etc., etc. We were doing a unit or something to find more out about us in general. It was actually pretty cool.).

How did you find out about this forum?
I googled 'intp forum'.

Do you have a partner/lover?
Nah.

Do you have any kids?
Nahhhhhhhhhhhh.

Do you have any pets?
A cat and a dog.

Which hobbies absorb you the most?
Reading, writing, and being in my school's band. I've seemed to have managed to stay interested in these three no matter how much time has passed (thank God). Learning about psychology and philosophy come a close second. It's been about three years now I think since I first found interest in them and I haven't gotten bored yet.

Hardest thing about being INTP?
For me, it's the constantly changing interests and the boredom. It's really bad, too, when you end up befriending a person and not two months later you already want to break it off because they bore you.

Where are you from?
Undetermined. The Earth, the solar system, and the galaxy are moving at incredible speeds through space and time, and as such my exact position is constantly changing. "Texas" I suppose is the most accurate answer though.

What is your age?
A rough approximation places me at 20 years, 1 month, and 11 days.

What's your sex?
I am of the masculine variety.

How did you find out that you were INTP?
Through a multitude of MBTI tests and through constant self-evaluation and reflection.

I googled INTP and found this awhile back. I lurked as a guest until joining just moments ago.

Perhaps in another world line, but not in this one.

Again, perhaps in another world line.

The first thing I did was take an online test, which placed me at ENFP. After learning more about MBTI and talking to 2 psychologists, I figured that INTP was much more accurate.

Hi yall,
I go by trite neophyte for this forum, you can just call me Neo for starters and maybe Phyte if we get acquainted with each other :)

I'm a 25 years INTP male according to my birth certificate and all personality tests taken through online sources (took a handful of them for the past 3 years or so).

I'm single, child and pet free (not that I have a problem with either).

My primary reason for joining this forum is to refine my conversational skills. As the forum seems to be enriched with manifold sound discussions, that may apparently drive me to be an eager participant (I tend to be a spectator by default).

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

I am in the military and after going to the doctor about a sore back, the doctor mentioned chronic back pain being linked with depression and sent me to see a shrink.

After about 10hrs of testing and a few days of talking to the shrink, he said I was not depressed at all. Rather my trade was not satisfying any of the needs of my personality which was INTP. There is much more to this story however I believe this is enough to satisfy the completion of this question.

How did you find out about this forum?

Google. I've decided to explore more about INTP, and meet with other INTP people. Since INTP only makes up approximently 3% of the population, the chances of me finding others in my daily life are very slim.

Do you have a partner/lover?

Yes

I'm not sure if I ever did this.

What is your name? No idea

Where are you from? The States

How old are you? 31

What's your gender? Female

Do you have a partner/lover? Yes, I have an INTJ. We are both poly, but our combined introversion has left us contentedly monogamous for like 3 years now.

Do you have any kids? No. I have fur-babies.

Do you have any pets? 3 cats and two fish. Well, one of the cats belongs to my spouse, but the cat sleeps on my head, not his, which basically makes it my cat.

Which hobbies absorb you the most? Reading, staring off into space, cooking, writing, painting, programming, & wandering around.

Hardest thing about being INTP? I really want to do things that are highly impractical. Like taking a 5 year vow of silence or walking/wandering the world like a vagabond for a decade or being a forever full time student. But adults without wealth simply can't do those things. Also, I have MS now, so there's a whole new level of practical that will be confining me as the years go on.

What's your gender? Female. At least I think. My genitals says so and I have no problem with being either gender so...

Do you have a partner/lover? Yep. An ENTP. I think it is still a bit strange that we both are fine with not clinging each other a lot, especially in her case, but I will go and assume this is just because we are dating online and she will be once we meet in real life.

Do you have any kids? If my OCs doesn't count then nope.

Do you have any pets? A dog and a pet rabbit. My cuties <3

Which hobbies absorb you the most? Roleplaying, Video games, wondering random stuff, making papercraft, being in my little world, getting into foolish depressions out of boredom then finding something to research that will consume my life for a while.

Hardest thing about being INTP? Trying to being certain about if you are one or not. Also people misunderstanding you or rather not even bothering to listen your reasonings. Being into things not many people in your age cares about so not being able to 'socialize' much even if you do try. Emotions. That goddamn process of emotions and attempts to trying rationalize and understand them is going to be my death.

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

probably junior or senior year of high school in one of my psychology courses, but I truly learned/became interested in my type nearly two years ago when a friend of mine (also an INTP) gave myself and a group of friends a short MBTI test at a party. I took several more tests after that--including Kiersey's from Please Understand Me II--to ensure consistent results. and here we are.

Hello. I'm a ISTJ, I came to this forum because I don't understand you and think you are weird.

I'm happily married to my first love and have three children. On the weekends I go motorbike riding and work on my car. I also like shooting.

Something I've noticed is that you don't have a sports and recreation sub-forum. I read through all the forum rules and would like to petition the administrators to add this forum.

Also something else I find concerning a lot of the members seem to be breaking the rules and nobody is doing anything about it. Particularly not following formatting properly and multiple posts introducing themselves (that gopher fellow) Apart from absurdity. He seems like a fine upstanding man.

Now since I am old and wise and my wisdom is great feel free to ask me questions. (but not in this thread obviously that would be breaking the rules)
