From what I understood, you kind of wanted something that will make you both miserable and obsessed, and so help you grow.
What worked amazingly well for me is trying to create art - painting, writing, composing, sculpting, dancing... what ever seems like your cup of tea. It takes a little bit...
Glad things turned out so well. I've not been to the forum for a while now (d'oh), so sorry for the late response.
I've kind of settled into my new life in the UK - started working and found a favourite cocktail bar - so the essentials are covered. It's quite nice here, I'm glad I came.
Yeah, I know what you mean about the budget - I stopped working four months ago and my wallet is starting to look seriously sad right about now :D Oh well, luckily Serbia is the land of cheep booze, so I'll survive :)
I hope the new trip goes well for you :)
I was in the Dutch part of Belgium, and the language is way weirder than French :)
Glad you're feeling better, though. Where to next?
I'm back in Serbia now, will be here for a while, as I need to wait for the UK border agency to approve my settlement visa, which apparently takes ages :/ Oh...
Yes, Europe can be neat that way. I'm in Belgium now, and the language is weird as hell :)
As far as normalcy and belonging go, I'm not sure that you can ever really belong while you're trying to present yourself as something you're really not. Catch 22 at it's best :/
What did you decide in the...
Oh, don't do it! Don't give up now :)
I hope you're feeling better, though. I'm doing a bit of a trip through Europe now, so I'm in Krakow for a week or so, and will the head off to Belgium.
I hope things improve for you.
Hugs and ENFP kisses :)
Not sure what to think about that, I'm not really sure I know many INFP's, at least not ones I've identified, then again, I'm really not very good at the whole typing thing. As far as I can tell, I rarely click with anyone, regardless of the type :)
Btw, did you know that some of the guys from...
In terms of survival pain is quite useful, no pain, no moving your arm from the circular saw until it's too late.
As far as emotional pain goes? I think that's kind of useful as long as you try to understand why it's there and what you should change in order to make it stop, rather than just...
Nah, I think that artists come in different shapes and sizes. Some of them are just more willing to express their delusions than the ordinary folk, some might enjoy it, others may feel the need to do it, and others might just be attention whores :D
Meaning is a weird word, isn't it? I suppose for musicians and artists their art may be a way of exploring potential meanings or expressing what they think the meaning ma be.
I personally don't think there is any such thing as meaning. It's just us deluding ourselves.
I'm not sure if being dumb has anything to do with being unable to decide. Perhaps that depends on what your definition of "dumb" is.
Haven't been to Oxford yet, but I probably will at some point. The UK is pretty, though it sometimes makes this song appear in my head :)...
I don't think it's hedonism.
There were moments when it was amazing fun, but now I've grown a bit tired of it, but I still wish to continue doing it and make it work, so I must assume that there is more to it than just indulging in the silliness of it all.
How about you? What will be your...
Yeah, the selling Nothing thing was quite cool, but then I kinda lost momentum (damn my INTP-ness) I should really get back to doing that.
I think that maybe a modified version of your conversation formula should work for friend-making as well - consciously approach people and try to keep in...
I've seen this fear in almost every bright person I know, and I don't think it's reseved form INTP's onely. I think that it usually arises more from a lack of direction than from a lack of ability, intelligence or what ever you want to call it.
To explain - in my experience, people tend to...
As far as making friends is concerned, I'm afraid I have limited experience when it comes to that kind of stuff. I have very few friends, to be honest, though the ones I do have, I value quite highly. From what I could gather it seems that when ever I consciously try to form a connection...
I've just moved from Serbia to England, and I won't be able to work here before February next year, which will probably be the longest free time I've had since I was 6, so for now I just plan to relax, take it easy and embrace my hedonist side (as if it needs embracing, I sometimes wonder if I...
Hedonism doesn't sound that bad to me :confused: Why do you think that's fucked up?
I'm good. Took a bit of a rest from this place for a couple of years, but now it's kind of fun to check in every once in a while.
Oh, it was a joke?
Excuse silly old me, I never get those things. The sense of humor slowly deteriorates with years, you see. Much like teeth. And other things. Proven scientific fact that.
I call everyone here "child", even those who were never young. It's a privilege I decided I...
I think that the old philosophers (the Greeks, the Chinese) had a huge influence on the development of the societies they lived in, as well as the society we live in today.
The modern ones (at least the professional ones, the ones who try to write books and give lectures and stuff) I feel are...
Dear child, by saying that I accuse people of being nerds you imply that there is something wrong with being a nerd, which I think is most intolerant of you.
I believe that being a nerd is quite cute, and very cool in most cases. I have great respect for normal nerds.
Being an alpha nerd, on the...
The posts here kinda reminded me of this:
Except the normal nerds say: "Some of it is interesting" while Alpha Nerds yell: "It is important that you know that I'm smarter than their intended audience!" :D
I may have limited knowledge of your romantic choices, and I may be a wicked old hag, but it seems to me that out of the two girls you told me about one was a kid who just wanted to party, and the other one has a long term relationship already. I may be missing something, but these do not look...
Niiiice :) I knew the normalcy wouldn't last :)
Enjoy the fjords, and let me know how the whole thing goes.
It would be lovely to meet up at some point, I think there are relatively cheap flights from there to London, so if you get bored, or if you've just got time to spare, you could always...
I haven't been on the forum for a while, so I imagine you've already decided on the destination by now :) What is it?
I moved to England, by the way. I'll be staying in Guildford, so if you find yourself anywhere near the London area, give me a shout :)
Oh, everywhere :D Depends on your budget, and the kind of thing you want to do really.
Some of my favorite cities are Krakow, Dubrovnik, Istanbul, Bath, Prague and Budapest.
Barcelona , Paris and Venice are awesome if you go around February when there aren't that many people around.
Yup, very friendly :)
D'oh! Now all of the Internet will know his name, now all the perverts will be using his name in their sick fantasies. Oh well.
Looks like we're moving to England for the 2nd year anniversary :D I'm quite excited, it should be great fun.
From close observation of me and my...
Sorry, I forgot about the INTPf for a little while, damn my INTP-ish absentmindedness :D
You did seem pretty friendly to me, I have to say :)
As for me opening up, might have something to do with living with Steve for almost 2 years now, maybe I'm getting used to having people around :)
