Unhappy Re: You know you're an Intp when...

1 when you take a test three to four times and it still comes out as you are an intp
2 when you ask your boyfriend to marry you because you are tired of waiting and he laughs in your face and says you cant do that so now he has put you in a gloomy mood and you don't know what to say to him anymore because of it.:(
3. when you think so much that you put yourself in a depressed stay away from me mood :(

42: When you make detailed and extensive plans for projects/assignments just so you won't actually have to do said project/assignment until the very last minute.
22/7: You then lose the plan anyway and just make it up as you go along, but in only a quarter of the time!
√2: You own more books than clothes.
θ: You use numbers like these to compile lists.

You feel like you can abstract yourself out of your body (even though you don't tend to admit it to yourself)

You often have to remind yourself that you are a human being, not a disembodied perceptual field.

You refuse to write important essays unless you are permitted to head them with trenchant denouncements of the educational system (yes, I do this).

You consider committing suicide because there's a chapter about ethics in your Science textbook (they even infect science with their blasted culture? There's no hope).

You're listening to a ''leading expert'' in a field you know nothing about, and feel the urge to correct every other statement he makes.

You trust the imagined reality of future possibilities more than the persistent hallucination of the present.

Somebody claims to have a system for developing psychic abilities, and you have to try it because either believing or disbelieving it without experience would constitute a violation of your intellectual integrity.

You've wondered if psychic abilities are dependant upon cognitive effort and the only reason you haven't used them yet is because you're too lazy for the effort required.

You've picked one random card from a deck & successfully guessed what it was, then spent an entire afternoon trying to replicate this first attempt.

After reading the last three points you find yourself staring at a pen on your desk, trying to make it move with telekinetic effort.

You've failed, but you still think it was worth trying anyway.

So I guess it's normal to feel like you're not really here then? I always assumed I was probably on drugs or something. And not just the ones in the water. Damned underdeveloped Se!

You have a brilliant insight and can't wait to tell somebody, but then realise that nobody else would understand what you're talking about.

You decide that you're a God who's tricked himself into believing in this world, and that the hallucination will end whenever you will it to.

You realise that you have no way of disproving that reality began 5 minutes ago, and accept it as a tenable and potentially accurate theory.

I just go ahead and say it anyway, and then let them take 5 hours figuring it out. It's not my problem that they can't telepathically absorb my thoughts.

^ Possibly the funniest one so far.

+ you sometimes forget that the reason people are able to keep making unannounced visits into your personal space is not because your AT field is malfunctioning; it's because you're not an Eva.

You have a brilliant insight and can't wait to tell somebody, but then realise that language is about 1000 years too primitive for you to be able to say what you're thinking.

You tell someone that you honestly don't want get married or have kids and they gawk at you utterly dumbfounded.

You have come up with complex plans to overthrow power figures, establish cults, and/or stop stupid people from reproducing; but are to lazy to put them into motion.

You wish it was the future already.

Your imagination is always far more interesting than anything happening in reality.

You officially lost all hope for the human race when someone told you that Scientology is based on science.

You know hundreds of -isms, psychological disorders, and mythological figures thanks to Wikipedia.

You think of your self as an observer; not a participant.

You wish the Christians would come up with more intelligent arguments instead of bombarding you sob stories and circular reasoning.

You've contemplated suicide, yet you still want to be immortal.

You have never ever been referred to as a hopeless romantic.

I've never admitted this before.

So why didn't you do it? Because I realised that I might be able to live forever.

Not only that; but as a God you were so bored that you hoped you wouldn't figure it out, so as to occupy yourself for as long as possible.

You constantly find yourself with a huge grin on your face.

You wonder why people give you such strange looks.

You realise how often you've conceptually raped reality by using it as raw material to feed into your internal models.

You wish that somebody was aware of being a victim to your conceptual rape.
