    Also, one of the prominent traits of autism or ASD is a misunderstood fantasy life.
    Yes it is amazing how slow they are to learn.
    Hammer it into their heads, lad, hammer it into their heads.

    A WARNING

    It will take two years. And even then, half of them will still be in the dark.

    Why? I am INTP, and I have severe OCD (To understand just how much hell this combination is, remember that INTP's value rationality and suffer from relentless self-doubt. Now combine that with a mental illness that makes people check the stove 30 times in order to "feel" sure that the stove has been turned off). What is it about IJ that you think correlates with OCD?

    As for me, my psychiatrist thinks I have AS, and I think she is probably right. I never considered getting a formal diagnosis (I assume there are special tests?) to be worth the trouble.
    This country is the country where they use the leaf blowers. I should like to shoot the bastards (the ones who use the leaf blowers that is) but I have two obstacles.

    1. Because I am an autist, they do not give me the licence to carry a gun.
    2. I cannot shoot straight.

    If you do not hear the sound (a sound ?) of a leaf blower, you have nothing to fear.
    If you do hear the sound of a leaf blower ringing (ringing ?) in your ears, run for your life. Depart.
    Leave immediately. Escape.

    To get the diagnosis you need to see a specialist. Whether or not you need one depends on your external condition.
    If you hear the sound of a leaf blower, you do not need anything.
    Leave. Take all your money out of the bank.

    Ni or Si.

    What makes people think the INTPs/INFPs (= intuitive introverts !) are not high in Ni?
    Most of them are extremely high in Ni. Elementary, my dear Watson.

    I am an INTP and I have mild OCD. My child is INFP and she has a severe OCD.

    With INJs Ni is of the first order.

    With INTPs Si does not usually count. It is the 7th function on the average. But there are exceptions to every rule.

    If you hadn't mentioned socialist forbidding private schools, I would think you were talking about the United States (what other country has a lot of leafblowers and allows you to carry guns? Or by "licence to carry" (concealed weapons), do you mean licence to own (weapons in your own home or automobile?) If its the latter, I would guess Canada or maybe Australia (I don't know if private schools are outlawed in those countries). If you would rather not say, that's cool, I was just curious (and outraged).

    Okay, I'll check out the descriptions somewhere (I only have the first Please Understand Me book, and I don't think I recongnize either Ni or Si from said book). I was under the misapprehension that somebody was equating OCD with Obsessive-Compulsive Personality disorder. Thanks!

    It goes both ways. Primarily the tendency towards autism is influenced by type.
    Reactively it goes the other way around. Unfortunately I do not know any studies of the reverse mechanism.

    It is obvious anyway. Autism eventually turns an extravert into an introvert.
    It happened to me and I have seen it happen to others.

    Unless, of course, Ni stands for intuition.
    If that is the case, I don't understand the connection.

    Finland.

    Are you from Iowa? Do you have leafblowers only in Iowa or has the blasted raving insanity spread all over the country?
    Thank you for telling me. Sakrament noch einmal! I shall never set my foot in that place. Never.

    Is there a spot in the world left where you do not find the idiotic tool from hell? Tell me where it is. Hurry.

    Hermann! Hermann!

    Start packing!

    That is the equation.
    If you want to know about your Ni or Si do the Cognitive Processes Test. It is a good guideline. And free.

    INTP is Ti Ne - - - - Si Fe.
