I think too many people these days think they’re depressed, when really they’re just bored. There have been some interesting studies done lately that indicate people living in first world countries are more likely to be ‘depressed’ because we have so little to strive for. Too many people are without the necessary motivation to lead successful lives. In more impoverished places people are motivated by their will to survive, here, in the first world, we don’t have the same kind of intrinsic motivation. Rather, we don’t have to use it, and so with our most primitive instincts being rendered quite obsolete we become ‘depressed’. Or just bored.
I'm an INTP (obviously, as I follow this blog) and it seems as though I'm some sort of ENFP magnet. A majority of my friends are ENFPs, and they all have super interesting personalities. They're not "popular" people, but they're the cool, outgoing, quirky ones that everyone loves. And they seem to flock to me. Has anyone else experienced this?
These are actually the original numbers from my first MBTI evaluation. They’re the only numbers I’ve given a grain of salt because I took this before I knew what the MBTI was or had any biases on what I was doing (I was like… 9 or something)
is the fact that intps tend to be atheist in itself prove that god doesnt exist?
I don’t believe its possible to prove that something does not exist. It would be a logical fallacy to make any sort of absolutist claim. So I don’t think it is correct to say that there is proof of the non-existence of a God.
However, NT (rational) types do have a higher tendency to be atheists. As for me, I’m not religious, that’s for sure.
just wondering: are these actually, specifically intp traits? i feel like they could apply to other people as well.
Is it really possible to create posts that relates exclusively to a group of questionably legitimate, self-proclaimed, socially retarded doorknobs who could all be rocket scientists if they chose to actually pick up a pencil, make themselves presentable and get outside for a change?
do you think that intps get obsessive easily? over a particular subject, or a person etc
On the short term, yes, all the time. INTPs are easily intrigued by things that they don’t understand. We’re driven by a constant search for better understanding of how things/people/the universe/stuff works. So if something comes up that’s new and interesting an INTP is bound to jump right into it and completely immerse themselves in it. That is until they feel they know enough about it and let it pass by the wayside and move onto something else.
The INTP is above all a thinker and his inner (private) world is a place governed by a strong sense of logical structure. Every experience is to be rigorously analysed, the task of the INTP’s mind is to fit each encountered idea or…
So I’ve just spent the better part of my day burning through this website, and it’s great. Well researched, written and detailed. Plus it’s written by an INTP! - which is an obvious bonus because how they present everything fits nicely into my head and makes sense. Overall, an excellent resource!
Is it normal for INTP's to daydream? Even if like the lesson of that subject requires the person to use critical thinking & lots analyzation? 'Cause I do & I'm srsly tyring to keep up just to pay attention
INTPs often get caught on different trains of thought partway through something. They might be listening to a person talk or sitting in a lecture when something the person says clicks and then before you know it the INTP is miles away mulling and musing over a distantly linked idea.
I know what you’re asking about, and I find myself in the same situation sometimes. I don’t think of it as daydreaming though, just pondering.
How exactly do people on the border of INTP and INTJ work? I'm only 1% P and I've scored this on many tests, occasionally scoring 1% J. My socionics scores as INTx. My INTP subtype is ITNP, aka the one that is most on the border of P and J, apparently. Could you explain how these scores work together/how I may differ from the rest of the INTPs?
This falls to your preference of cognitive functions. Depending on which functions you rely on, and are therefore more developed, you may behave more like an INTJ than other INTPs. It doesn’t mean you are one though.
