1.You uphold the beleif that it is possible to be perfectly social wihtout actually speaking.

2.More often than not, you bow your head while walking, and are an expert at 'crowd dodging'

3. You indulge in, and are quite renowned among friends for, making completely random, yet very accurate observations.

4.You think about the very thing which you are not doing.

5.If wikipedia was a person, you would marry it. If possible, you would download the internet into your mind.(and have probably tried)

6.You frequently entertain the thought that you can make peoples heads explode simply by concentrating pure hatred on them.
Or at least, you wish it were so.

7.You often fantasise about being part of a wordlwide virtual reality, or becoming an all powerful demigod,or something of the like.


8.When sitting on any public chair which has more than one sight sideby side, you kindly make sure that your dearest -whatever you're carrying- has a seat to itself.

9.No-one* finds you funny but yourself, and despite this, you are always trying to make clever jokes that no-one gets.

10.You have spent a whole night of not sleeping, pondering something, and then after asking someone about it the next day, realise that you're the only one which seems to care.



Feel free to add more.


:D





*Okay...so maybe some people do get them..but only the ones you don't want to laugh.

when you refuse to do something in the name of "intellectual principles"

when you communicate mostly through various means on a computer

when your mental age is 15-20 years older than your physical age until you're 35, and then 10 years mentally younger after that.

When you just have to correct every mistake you see or hear

high aspirations and mediocre achievement (by the world's standards) - for the most part

56. You're still following the numerical system though people have either purposely or inadvertently discarded it.
57. You cringed at nearly all of Mac's listings (but adamantly read them ALL) before realizing that he was listing off INFP characteristics.

He'd just find a way to get it back. Like usual.

66. You know you're a (female/gay/bi) INTP if you happened upon the Tardis and all you wanted to do is keep the 10th doctor company. And keep his heartrates up. <3

Of course he'll get it back, but the beauty of a time machine is that by the time he does I've already done everything I've wanted to do.

Point 66.5: Or kill him until he changes into a female form, :D (if it's possible)

21. When people start to avoid you because "you suck the happiness out of life" by over-analyzing everything.

548. When you randomly laugh at you own thoughts and tell people "oh, it's nothing"

-1. When you tell your parents/employer your room/office is "not trashed! It's got complex order!"

1/0 When you obsessively use parenthesis or slashes in your sentences (well not necessarily in your sentences; just running off on tangents when speaking/writing, and being in the necessity to find a means of keeping it all clear).

3.14 When you spend too much time writing and rewriting something, so that it is as clear as possible, just to have people say its excessively long-winded for such a simple concept.

# When you keep up a bad joke long after everybody has stopped laughing (if they even laughed at all).

5i. When you write extensive "to-do" lists, and then lose them.

XIX. When you are proud of people being outraged at your comments and being called insane, perverted, amoral, and insensitive.

A. When you are constantly saying "I told you so, but no you wouldn't listen to me!" *shakes head in disapproval*

5^2 When you talk to inanimate objects more than with people

? When people finally reveal some dark, super secret knowledge and you go "ah, just as I thought" or "I had assumed so" or "it was evident from the patterns I had previously observed"

~ When you smile at people telling you that "you'll die alone, never get married, and will go to hell"

7. When you quote philosophy and everybody looks at you like you are from outer space.

@. When you wish you were from outer space.

$. When in a single day you have rented from the library more books than the amount of friends you have ever had.

*. When you are quoted as saying "Books are more reliable than people".

%. When you wish people had a *mute* button.

10. When you try to take over the world (from the comfort of your couch)

11. When you spend several hours at INTPforum when you know you should be doing otherwise.

+. When you constantly wonder what it would be like to have been born the opposite sex.

99. When you creep people out because you stare at them while trying to read their thoughts, by being lost analyzing the geometric proportions of their bodies, thinking about the connections and mechanics of bone structure and muscles for potential cybernetic prosthetics, or by attempting to determine their MBTI type...

631. Every serious conversation you attempt with non-INTPs abruptly ends when they keel over laughing at your use of correct terminology and/or complicated words.

632. You wake up one day with an answer to all the world's problems and all the others care about is that assignment you had set aside...

633. You can not help but re-read what you've just written multiple times, just to make sure that's exactly what you want to say and how you want to say it.

Apparently the Doctor's final form was female in a spoof. And then she had the hots for the Master. It also implied that the sonic screwdriver could be used for a wider range of (fun) purposes. :p

I get accused of "checking people out", then they freak out when I tell them the truth.
thinking about the connections and mechanics of bone structure and muscles for potential cybernetic prosthetics
What's so wrong with that anyway?

Well that does make me more than a little curious.

- when your friends give up getting you out of the depression.
- when you often don't feel purpose of going out anywhere or speaking to anyone you know for week or two.
- INTP forum is the only one you stay at longer than one day.
- you often turn off your cell phone, so nobody could reach you (nobody from the forum will confirm:D)

98. You use and/or more than you use and and/or or.

100. You're wondering if Mac's should be subtracted and whether Cog's .5 add should be considered its own or not.
101. You're very sad that we couldn't keep it all under 100. :(

106. You acquired honorary fraternity brother/sorority sister status by befriending Greeks, without actully joining their pretentious organizations;
107. In your career, your viewed as bright and hard-working, but a bit weird, and not enough of a "team player;"

Edit: I just realized that I skipped 102. Oh well.

116. It was actually longer than 20 minutes.
