    Hello all.
    It's kinda strange, but I have to admit that I don't like my type either.
    I have no idea whether it's good or bad. I just don't like it.

    I like being an INTP quite a bit. We're witty, laid back, and usually pretty bright. Learning about MBTI has helped me develop the areas in which I think I'm limited. I am better able to understand different types. I'm also better able to identify my own stresses and reactions. I love fellow INTPs because I can relate to them. They crack me up more than any other type. I also, however, have learned to relate better to my NF friends through MBTI and to work on the things I don't like about myself. Learning about typology has helped me to soften my bluntness and to communicate my introvert needs to others in a way that doesn't offend them. I still have trouble understanding SJs, but that's part of why I joined this site.

    Yo, I think yo in the wrong forum. The MBTI forum is a that-a-way ^

    Wait, no, my directions won't make sense to you. I'm an SJ.

    Aaahh--sorry. I didn't realize I was in the enneagram thread. I'm multitasking and misread. I'm also new, so please be patient with me.

    I'm pretty happy with it.
    I think one of the main advantages of mbti/enneagram....etc etc, is that it gives you an opportunity to understand yourself and work on any areas needing improvement/further understanding that might crop up. It also helps you understand others.
    Bonus time.

    Of the few possible INFPs I've met, I have been rather annoyed at how quiet, reserved and distant they are. It makes them so incredibly difficult to get to know. Afterwards when I think about it and realise they were probably a INFP, I get really pissed off knowing that we both sat there and played the small talk game, when we could have both talked about the stuff that genuinely interested us.

    Then again, I'm always irritated by people more introverted than myself. It's hard enough being a rather shy and quiet person as it is, let alone when you have to be the one holding up the entire conversation and attempting to bridge the awkward silences. I deeply resent being forced to play the extrovert.

    I try not to play games like this anymore, I talk if there's something on my mind. If it's nothing interesting, important or relateable then silence is fine. If someone doesn't like silence, then that's their problem, they can fill it with whatever they want. Conversation is for fun, if you're not enjoying it or it takes too much effort on your half, then it's probably not worth it. The only effort you need is in the greeting - hey, how's it going? If they say fine, they don't wanna talk, if they start spilling their life story, then you just go with it. Reserved people are going to take some time to open up, no need to pry them open, just be patient. Hell I take quite some time to open up too, especially because I'm usually tagged as ~NERD~ when I do :P. It's also easier to open up when you have a friend or two by your side.

It's just retarded, why is it so hard to do something so seemingly simple with any kind of consistency?
    Perhaps what you really need is anxiety medication? I started taking some a while ago, they helped a lot.

    And sp is the best. Hands down, no doubt.
    Everybody prefer the Sx's. But I wouldn't change.
