Often, my comments illicit rage from others. This is generally because they have either misinterpreted my position or have not actually heard it. The unfortunate thing about being a thoughtful person is that many arguments actually require a substantial amount of time to express, and people are generally unwilling to allow someone more than 20 seconds to express their ideas in casual conversation. This is not a problem amongst other intellectuals such as those in my PhD program but has caused serious strife with members of my family and some of my friends. I was curious if this was a 'common thing' for the 'INTP.'
