It takes 4 hours of thinking about moving before you actually do.. and even then, you have to fight the urge to sit back down again like 3 or 4 times.

Haha. Sometimes you actually do make a contradiction, other times you know it only sounds like you made a contradiction.

Funny how it's not the mental work but the typing. How backwards we are.
to expand on this, you know you're an intp when hours after posting something on the internet you get hit with the contradiction alert and worry sets in like "wait... is that what i typed? shit that's not what i meant" until you decide to either go back and correct yourself (which sometimes turns out to be a false positive and you were worried for nothing or it turns out to be a real contradiction either because you screwed up somehow or your wording was very poor in which case you were still pretty much worried for nothing because who really cares other than that mess in your head) OR you let it go and it turns out that no one even caught it after all and so you're all like :treeswing:

#?- When you're in the middle of doing something, then you start to think about why this is happening, how this is happening, stop doing what you're doing to focus all your brain power into your thoughts, think about the meaning of everything, have an existential crisis, think about it some more, then go back to what to you were doing earlier, like nothing ever happened. Then everybody asks you why you take so damn long.
(I dunno if that's just me, though...)

-when you don't have emotions in your dreams, and you "wish" you could live in your dreams when you're awake even if you got stabbed in your dreams (because they defy the laws of the universe in a interesting way)
-when you try to turn on the light switch (is that the right way to write it?) in a room that's already lit (by the light or the sun)
-when you can't think of anything when you're posting/speaking/writing, but your brain is full of "everything" right after your post/speak/write
-when you like to look at animated avatars or emoticons just to see when/how often they blink (or is that just me?)
-when you want to capitalize the first letter after every bullet point, but are too lazy to do so:p

When you plan to go to sleep "early" , but you look at the clock and it's 03.45 - you've been reading for five hours.

When you really hate the way the "INTP forum" is run by a couple of prudish, thick, humorless xSTJ cunts who care more about etiquette than logic.

When you think of an extremely elaborate possibility and form a question to ask a peer or someone of high intelligence and then they can't answer it because they didn't consider something as detailed as that and now they're questioning their logic.

When your boss actually says to you, "I've been trying to figure out how you work for the last 10 years. I still haven't got a clue, so now I just leave you to get on with it."

-Some of the only times you genuinely smile are when you're daydreaming about something funny. Sometimes it happens in a depressing situation and it's very awkward.
-People often accuse you of staring at them, when you were just daydreaming and didn't even realize you were looking at them.
-You misplace things so much that you can't find them when someone "helps" you by putting them in the right place.

2232. It took you >2000 iterations to realize that not only could you have used bullet points, but you could change the forum format to allow you to copy past without changing every text formatting setting for the pasted text. I'm still too lazy however...

Your searing pain face is quite similar to your morbidly depressed face which is quite similar to your relatively happy face.

When it could be the worst day of your life; you have broken bones, internal bleeding, you've lost everything and everyone you hold deer and may not make it through the day. But if someone asks how you are doing, you will respond with, "yeah, I'm fine."

When someone asks you to make a spreadsheet up, you will relish the chance to make up a monstrous multi line franken-equation that no one else can read and solves the nature of the universe, and you feel like a mad scientist with a huge chalk board. That one might be just me.

When you respond to that with:

"You spelled 'dear' wrong"

And

"In your Tapatalk settings, you can easily get rid of that phone signature"

When you spelled "dear" wrong because you use keypad swiping on your phone and can't be bothered to proof read anything.

And when you can't be bothered to change your settings unless it bothers someone else. Better?

When you've forgotten most complex things in Excel since college your college days, so you craftily rely on cunning to rope your more proficient colleagues into doing that shit for you.

Let someone else make a spreadsheet?
When else do I get to use algebra or complex conditional statements? Nah, no one takes a spreadsheet task from me.

And when you wrote "college" twice for some reason and it broke the sentence.

This thread..:eek: I'm home!

My contribution:

When you absolutely hate going back and forth. Everything has to happen on the first run or not at all. Have to pack up a car for holidays? 'Yup, i got them muscles - I ain't coming back for another load.'

When you deducted god and dismissed heaven and hell by when you were seven. Premises: 1) god is perfect, 2) god is sapient and acting in the world. Deduction: 1) only "everything" has potential to be perfect. It cannot miss a thing, it must consist of everything. All the good AND the bad. All the matter and antimatter. Every fiber in you and around you. Every speck of stardust. Every ray of light, every shadow and complete darkness. Every noble deed and evil thought. Everything. Only then it's perfect. 2) humans are sapient, dolphins and most propably few another alien species, too.You are part of everything. You are part of god. You are one tiny sapient part of this perfect system which is god.

Then again there is no need for heaven and hell in all this. It's all part of the perfect world anyways. There's no real need for prayers either, tho. Crom does not help.

So.. you know you are intp when you deducted that you are god.

Also: when this forum makes sense

Edit: also when multiple choice questions like "who'd you rather be" results in complete system shutdown while you ponder the lives of them options. Two options is ok, three is manageable, four or more fuck me up.

One of your classmates answers a question wrong, and your screaming to yourself how wrong they are and why, but are too shy to tell anyone so you nod your head and agree.

273. You skipped through 40/43 pages of this thread because they probably all apply to you anyway.
274. There is something on your floor that should be in a drawer/closet/desk/bin but it's irrelevant at the mo.
275. when you see an MBTI meme that includes everyone, you first find yourself and see what genius is written after the semicolon, then look for the next best response on the list and write down the MBTI pertaining to that response on your list of 'tolerable types'
276. Attempt to tictac over people far too often and fail.
277. Attempt anything that makes you feel awesome/badass but actually probably makes you look more loony - i.e. parkour, wheelys, makeup, DIY clothes.
278. Actually 1- attempt the above but never actually finish it or get better because of laziness or 2 - just do it flawlessly in your head and experience all the adoration and reactions of your friends in there.
279. Actually just spend wayyy too much time in your head, even though the climate and company of your own construct are significantly more ideal albeit, mono-dimensional.
280. due tomorrow,do tomorrow.
281. Spinny chairs. nuff said.

When you read through this thread (which obviously means jumping through pages without bothering reading it all because all evidence points towards it being pretty much the story of your life anyway) and have a heartfelt chuckle at it all.

Thank you all for this, you made my day better.

EDIT: Also don't write any of the 5000 things you came up with because, chances are, someone already wrote it all. (If someone has actually written something along the lines of this I will feel very dirty.)

RE-EDIT: When you instead turn back and start reading from the first page onwards, until you find out someone actually HAS posted something along the lines of it.
