    I'm wondering if your love for nature is due to the fact that there's nothing fake about it. Nature is very honest. Plus, its the only setting where there are no expectations. You can get lost in your thoughts very easily out while camping or hiking.

    INTP vs ISTP

    Something else to think about, Kat and others, is not just WHAT someone does, but also WHY they do it. Two people can engage in conversations for completely different reasons. For example, when I start conversations with strangers, its for a very very specific reason...like a social experiment...

    Marriage

    I've been with the same guy for 18 years. We have 3 kids together. We prefer to not be married. We don't need anyone to tell us our monogomous relationship is official. I think its better this way. No one feels forced to stick around. If for any reason one of us wants to leave, we can. I also...

    After your INTP brain has been on a high for several weeks non stop...

    By not fighting it, I mean just let it pass naturally. When you feel the urge to jump into and idea, then do it. When you're experiencing intellectual limbo, just let yourself go into auto pilot. During this "down time", I try to connect with friends I've been neglecting, fiddle with other...

    After your INTP brain has been on a high for several weeks non stop...

    This happens to me sometimes too. In fact, I've recently asked about this in a thread... a few weeks ago anyway. The responses I got pointed to stress. I'm still not so sure. I'm leaning toward brain fatigue because that what it feels like. It can last up to 3 weeks for me but then my brain is...

    Hello

    An INTP parent thread would be great. I'm dying to find out who else tries to keep their children occuppied in their rooms with video games, books, and art supplies. I have 3 boys. 5yr old twins and a 10 yr old. One of the twins I think is an introvert. The other 2 kids talk NONSTOP all day and...

    Hello

    Welcome. As long as you don't eat the pi you should be fine. Just dive in. And yes, that was a poor attempt at pun usage. If you need me, I'll be in the corner thinking about what I've done.

    INTPs and Motivation

    These are strategies that have been working for me. Feel free to use it or not :) As far as communication goes, most of what you need to do is listen intently to what the other person is saying and then either provide your opinion or actual facts about the topic. Sometimes you might want to...

    INTP lack of self-confidence due to seeing possibility

    Speaking for myself, as an INTP, I think almost the opposite about others. Therefore, my poor self confidence stems from something entirely different. My issue is that I see way too many possibilities to even make a final decision. This is what holds me back 99% of the time and its also what...

    Problems comprehending. Total brain meltdown. WTF?

    I'm a bored tourist. When is the next tour of the ruins? I'm sure there's still something good in there. Probably worth money too.

    Problems comprehending. Total brain meltdown. WTF?

    Agreed. My family in general is stable. I feel okay as long as we're together even if we're roughing it. I've always appreciated change myself and I enjoy the roaming. It's kinda refreshing, but I am slightly worried that my kids may suffer some future consequences. Then again, I believe that...

    Problems comprehending. Total brain meltdown. WTF?

    Hmmm, let's see. I'm living in an apartment with my husband and our 3 boys, but as usual, we'll be moving again in about 2 weeks. I believe the whole "moving every year or so" thing is wearing me down now. Plus there's this battle between what I think stability means for my kids and what society...

    Problems comprehending. Total brain meltdown. WTF?

    Yeah I'm seriously thinking its stress. Plus a little brain exercises couldn't hurt either. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Lmao! Shhhhh ... I was hoping no one saw that misuse of wording. Meant lurking. No really. Stop looking at me like that. Sheesh. *blushes behind hands

    With toxic food being legal, makes you wonder why marijuana is so frowned upon.

    Problems comprehending. Total brain meltdown. WTF?

    Hee hee. This IS a pleasantly insane place to spend time. And here's the kick... Everything needs explaining lol. Ok not everything. It happens enough for me to notice something is wrong though. Like sometimes I need to read a sentence 3 or 4 times really slowly to make sense of what I'm seeing...

    Problems comprehending. Total brain meltdown. WTF?

    Hmm. I haven't been in a stable place for a long time. As a matter of fact, just before I completed college studies, I was hit pretty hard by hurricane Katrina. My family hasn't been stable since. Maybe it has taken a toll that I didn't expect to bother me so much. I think we move to a new house...

    Problems comprehending. Total brain meltdown. WTF?

    I guess you're right about that but this happens no matter what I'm reading. For instance, I've been studying business and related topics since I was 18. There's not much I haven't seen or heard of before in this field. Yet there are 2 books sitting on my desk that I've been trying to finish for...

    Problems comprehending. Total brain meltdown. WTF?

    Somewhere between 1980 and today. Does that help? What does "did" mean anyway. Could you dumb it down a little for my goopy brain? Seriously I can't say for sure but it was after college (2006). I shot through assignments like nobody's business.

    Problems comprehending. Total brain meltdown. WTF?

    I started off just trolling here but it really is a great place to have a conversation with people about more than how sunny it is outside. Lately I've been having problems comprehending what I read or what people are trying to explain to me. I can't really pinpoint exactly when it started...

    Very well said! Make a game of life. See what you get. This totally sums up the super long post I had planned... Now what do I do? (Twiddles thumbs and sighs)

    Philosophical questions from a young age.

    And now if you don't tell me what she said I'm going to feel that same disappointment... Here's my guess. Heaven? If so, my grandma would say they walk around on the clouds up there. Then when I ask what happens on days when the sky is clear, obviously we're not supposed to ask stuff like that...

    INTPs as Social Adventurers

    Knowing that all people have something to offer is all fine and good. Finding reasons to connect with them is an issue in and of itself. I don't want to be accumulating acquaintances just for the sake of accumulation. To be perfectly honest with myself, I'm probably never going to see the value...

    Philosophical questions from a young age.

    I remember asking my Dad who God's dad was. He said we're not supposed to ask things like that. I was 8 yrs old when I asked him that. Now I'm 32. I haven't believed in God since. I completely lost interest in religion personally. I also recall wondering all the time what I was in my past life...
