    An INTPf user who has written a hate message on my Twitter account

    I think the point is, if you aren't going to protect people from having their personal information abused, then you shouldn't provide a profile feature whose singular purpose is to share personal information. If this info was shared in a thread, that would be something entirely different, but if...

    Determinism and time travel?

    You would have had to have had kids before you left, because relativistic time travel is only future-wards.

    If you had a superpower what would it be and why

    That in and of itself could be construed as two powers. One, clairvoyance with respect to people who try to have two powers, and two, the ability to call down lightning.

    Ever tried to explain to an Extrovert?

    Maybe instead of explaining it in terms of "energy" and so on and so forth, which sounds vague and pseudo-mystical, try simply stating what that really MEANS; being around people tires you out. You don't necessarily DISLIKE being around people, but it's like exercise. You can enjoy a jog every...

    Gifts for an INTP

    Agreed. I typically just ASK for what I want around the gift-giving seasons. If I can't think of anything, I'll ask for money. Assuming, though, that you intend to buy a THOUGHTFUL gift, start from your friend's interests and extrapolate forward from there. Be careful, though. A handpicked gift...

    INTPs and Employment

    For those INTPs who are or have been employed, how do you view your job? I'm currently at a place where I view a job as an intensely stressful affair that people only endure out of necessity, which, as might be expected, greatly hinders my motivation to look for one. Any honest feedback on your...

    Geocentrism and relativity

    Allow me to preface this with the statement that I don't actually understand relativity in any professional capacity. All I basically understand is that it states that any given inertial reference frame is basically as valid as any other. That said, would geocentrism technically be "wrong"? When...

    Building a Deck to Lose

    Well, the strategy I prefer, which I think might be representative of INTPs in general, is a blue-black control thing, so I think, if you're playing to lose, you might go with a red-green.
  11. MentalBrain


    Sort of. It's a strategy game/city building sim. You are the invisible all-seeing god-king of the Dwarves, and you order them to carry out the tasks necessary to not die, such as build defenses, farm food, and brew booze.

    Linguistic efficiency.

    I'd suggest lojban as a hypothetical "ideal language". Too few people actually speak it for you to use it to communicate directly, but learning it might help you economize your communication in English.

    New God Game Idea

    Also, I just had another idea which I'll post here instead of making a new thread; a video game where you can manipulate the universe by altering the math that defines it. For instance, if you alter the law of gravitation, the interaction of astronomical bodies will be immediately impacted, as...

    What is your excuse for not being vegan?

    I don't really care one way or the other. I honestly find eating to be an inconvenience in and of itself, so I'm not going to add to that inconvenience by limiting my diet, especially if the only reason I have to limit my diet is because some holier-than-thou person tells me to. I'm most likely...

    What is time (discussion)

    I think time is defined by change. Since change requires time to happen, you can inversely say that time requires change to happen. After all, a universe with zero change is equivalent to a universe with zero time. In order to make time useful, as opposed to a random arbitrary concept, we've...

    New God Game Idea

    Good questions, lightlazer, and to answer them, I'm not QUITE sure. There're probably rival religions and gods. Pantheons share a resource pool. I think it'd be sandbox and/or RTS. The level of influence you have; you can directly control inanimate objects, weather, and wild animals. You can...

    New God Game Idea

    Thanks for the link, Baron. Seems like something to check out. EDIT: I bought Godus and played it a bit, and it seems SIMILAR to what I was thinking, but it's still much more in the realm of "traditional" god game. What I'm imagining is much more of the concept, "If God is powered by belief...

    New God Game Idea

    Well, I know about Black & White. Never played it, but it sounds cool. I think I'm suggesting something different, though, because my game would take place across our world's history, so that eventually your population would reach a modern technology level.

    What's your purpose?

    New God Game Idea

    The idea is this; a god game where people have free will, and you can manipulate weather, animals, and inanimate objects. You can order people to do things, but you can't MAKE them obey; whether they do or not depends on how much they believe in you. You can make people believe in you by...

    Psychonauts and the Mental World

    Not sure if this is the best place for this, but the only other place I could think to put it was the Video Games section, and it fits this section better. Anyway, in the video game Psychonauts, the player character Razputin enters the mental worlds of various people. Each mental world is...

    So tired of school

    The GOOD news is that the school issue cleared up more easily than I originally thought. Also, as far as learning a trade goes, I've got a CompTIA A+ certification. Also, I've done some thinking about the RV thing. Ultimately, I only thought about that because I don't want to be tied down to any...

    Another free will/determinism question

    I'm of the opinion that determinism is true. The universe is deterministic, in that each "step", or future moment, is directly dependent on the previous "step". Every moment follows directly from the moment before, and each particular arrangement has exactly one possible progression. That said...

    So tired of school

    There seems to have been a miscommunication. When I say I want to be a writer, I don't mean I want to be an AUTHOR, I just want to get paid to write stuff. I only consider writing in general because it's something I do effortlessly, though I don't have much input as to the quality. And the work...

    Is belief a right?

    I think there are way too many issues with the logistics of regulating belief for it to be anything other than a right. For instance, how do you track beliefs? If you track them through actions, then you're not regulating the belief itself, you're regulating actions that arise from that belief...

    Untold Stories

    You're kind of trivializing an entire medium, in spite of the fact that quality stories can be, and often are, told in multiple media. It would be like me trivializing literature because it seems like the domain of pompous elitist wannabe intellectuals. Take Doctor Who, for example. Quality...
