So, since I'm pretty much the single worst human being at introducing myself, I'll keep it short.

Going through "stuff" in life, very stressed. I started thinking seriously about who I am, who I want to be, why I have the issues that I have. Holy Google, praise be unto it, helped me find the 16 personalities test the result of which has sparked curiosity about all of this and, what a surprise, the almiGhty has aided me in my "INTP forum" research, too.

I apologize in advance if I may seem grumpy at times or well, I don't even know if I should apologize at all, technically we're all as alike as it gets in here. Of all people, you would probably understand what I'm going through better than anyone else would.

Hopefully I won't wander off and forget about this forum eventually, if anything I sure do need to vent a bit by talking to others, in one way or another.
From what little I've seen you all seem like an interesting bunch, if anything this will be entertaining! So thank you in advance, that I can do.

Welcome Sir.

I also joined when I was trying to better understand myself. Type theory has been quite useful for me in that regard.

Enjoy the forums.

Thank you! I don't know what "type theory" is, and Google has failed me, either that or I don't quite understand how math could help me out in this case. Could you give me a link to follow? I'd gladly read anything on the subject, any advice is very welcome.

Either this cyberspace will stick to you or it won't. Hello and welcome :) come start a debate for us, or make a joke or a rant. You can be free here, we are just thoughts on a screen.

Hi. This is a good place to decompress, because it's pretty certain somebody in here will understand what you're saying even if the rest of the world is a big "Huh?"

Which is, unfortunately, and as edgy and cliché as it may sound, quite precisely my problem.

It is heartwarming though to hear the things you people said, though, thank you!

Hi. Hmm I believe that dots are going to be connected here for you...:)
So I hope. Right now I'm trying to deal with the whole just being completely myself at least on here. It's kinda hard so far, even though I feel completely safe because I'm pretty much surrounded by people more alike me than I've ever known*1 and I don't have to actually ever face any of you in person*2 I still struggle to completely let go, but I suppose that is normal too, I suppose very few people have ever gotten to the point of being able to truly, fully let go, so I'll say... I still find it hard to put my foot out of my comfort zone, kinda like when you're basking in the sun at the beach, it's 68° outside and people are catching on fire on their own, then you put your big toe in the water and you expect it to come out of it purple and encased in ice. That's the reaction my brain has to all of this. But I'll power through it like a true Spartan.

*1 (actually, I've never ever known anyone quite like "me")

*2 (it's a big plus for me, I'm sure you're all handsome people, but I just don't want to see you, or hear you, or interact with you in person. I'm a little little bit of a shut in as things stand, which is one of the things I want to fix)

I'm not even joking, I don't know if I need a shrink, alcohol, alcohol to go to the shrink, alcohol to give to the shrink to keep them "sane" or a shrink to help me with my alcohol problem. (I don't really have one, I just like unfunny jokes. Yes I was actually joking. Kinda.)
