In the past, i tend to think that there is one perfect answer, or solution to a question/problem

now i realize that sometimes, some questions really have no answers, or perfect solutions, unlike mathematical problems.

so instead of trying to look for solution, one should just continue to ask questions, but not look for exact solutions and answers, because sometimes it is beyond my cognitive ability, or there is simply none.

just have questions and refine them, and be content with imperfection or bad solutions, or even unsolvable,

This approach is the opposite of solution, answer seeking thinking. Leave the question open ended and unresolved.



Like for example , what ai stock should i invest in and what is the future trend?

there seem to be no definite solution to this problem

Have various solutions lined up before you try to see if any of them are correct, then look at the strengths and weaknesses of doing each one and pick the one that's the most acceptable to you

I think for most people its impossible to understand INTPs.
Its really inpenetrable mind. Hard to understand you know.
Its like so complex it leaves people scratching their heads.
Its like you wouldnt believe complicated.
Like person seeing the engine for the first time.
They don't know what the cylinders do or what causes the car go.
Its just a mystery.
Its just so complicated ugh.
Ugh wish there were people who just understand.
You just cannot put it into words.
I guess we will just have to call INTP the most complex sophisticated type.
I mean MBTI only scratches the surface, but the depth ugh.....
Its like its not even human or anything.
Its impossible to see through it.... ugh.

That's one of the biggest conundrum of decision making - too many choices. Similarly, too many theories. But it is a difficult enough to get acquainted with all perspectives. When you accomplish the job, it is a matter of preference. You cannot be right or wrong. After all, progress requires a decision. Are you willing to?

Ti always searching for the best answers + Ne always feeding more possibilities = a neverending loop of indecisiveness. Accepting that there may be no true right answer to a problem is both disheartening and compelling to me.

there is no best answer/solution or one answer

1+1=2
1+1=3
1+1=4
1+1+5

real problems are not mathematics where there is only one perfect answer solution to the problem. It's open ended and prone to change.
even then in math,often there is +2 and -2

In SCHOOL, there is only one right answer, because in school, they're teaching you how to solve problems using a certain strategy, and they need to check that you're using it the way you are taught.

There's a similar issue in university. If you get the right answer but you solve it differently to how you were taught and the other students solved it, your teacher remarks on it like you've got the wrong answer.

You probably got used to how you were taught in school.

Rather like how many humans talk as if they think everyone and everything is a human.

now i realize that sometimes, some questions really have no answers, or perfect solutions, unlike mathematical problems.
I did maths for a degree.

In maths, it's very rare for a maths question to have one, and only one, answer.

In maths, most questions have multiple solutions or none.

so instead of trying to look for solution, one should just continue to ask questions,
Another way is you simply look for all solutions.

but not look for exact solutions and answers, because sometimes it is beyond my cognitive ability, or there is simply none. just have questions and refine them, and be content with imperfection or bad solutions, or even unsolvable,

This approach is the opposite of solution, answer seeking thinking. Leave the question open ended and unresolved.
I would not get rid of exactness. Lack of accuracy is how the Challenger blew up.

Like for example , what ai stock should i invest in and what is the future trend?

there seem to be no definite solution to this problem
That is because it's not a question.

If the answer was that there's NO solution, you would probably consider that an unacceptable answer.

So you're probably not that interested in the answer, only for getting a means of making lots of money by investing in the stock market.

So it's not a question. It's a strategy for achieving your desires.

There's a greek guy who figured this out a long time ago. His method actually is named after him and is famous in philosophy.

Socratic method

Ludwig Wittgenstein calls this unnecessary because Socrates was referring to anything he could not picture was unable to be conceived(bs). Wittgenstein believed abstraction simply was. You needed no images for it.

Not only are there no solutions but there are no problems. You only perceive a problem. Sometimes its our perception of the problem that needs to change. Basically, adjust your expectations, and prioritize your concerns and needs.

Basically, you changed your expectations but it seems like you do this through apathy instead of being more creative.
ie. Problem -> "what ai stock do I invest in and what is the future trend"
change your expections -> "what i really need is more money to invest and real estate is safe and can allow me to have more money to invest in my interests like "ai". This will allow me time to do more research and get a better idea of how these ai companies operate".
