You just watch your step, winged pinball, or I'll do a detailed writeup on the both of you!
Well do it man! This is pure insanity. I think of the two of us, you are more likely mistyped. statistically, you are the most extroverted person on this entire forum. And I STILL have such doubts that I am trusting your own assessment of yourself as INTP. I simply don't know you in real life. Maybe that's why you like this forum so much--because you are too introverted to function in real life. Who knows! Variables, man, variables!
Edit: I will probably be asleep by the time you've responded. I'll check tomorrow to see if you've bitten.
Edit2: I would also like to point out, if it wasn't clear, that as an INTP, you seem to completely lack the thing that most consistently characterizes us: doubt. Your unwillingness to admit even a hint of doubt gives me even more evidence that you are probably an ENTP.
statistically, you are the most extroverted person on this entire forum.
High post count and rate, an Extravert does not make.
And let me say that I don't feel like being subjected to a comprehensive typing right now because it's closing in on finals week, and I can't handle that kind of distraction. (Also, I require a stipulation that Nocapszy and BlueWing be barred from posting in the thread at all)
Go to sleep, iguana.
INTP. Type 1>6>5. sx/sp. Live and let live will just amount to might makes right
This kind of justification is like that of the INFP, as is the intense effort taken to "prove" a preference for Thinking.
1. I like arguing and conflict to the point where I can't have an intimate relationship without it.
So you're driven by your emotional core moreso than the average INTP, who would eventually realize the futility of such argument with your intimate counterparts.
I routinely get into nasty conflicts with people at INTPc, in fact I seem to be one of the more aggressive Ts there. Speaking of which, 5 minutes at INFPgc makes me wanna barf.
Though I wouldn't say this is an argument against your being INFP, necessarily. Five minutes at INTPc makes me ill. I just don't care for single-type oriented boards anymore.
Agreeing with people bores me to the point of insecurity. If I agree with someone I feel absolutely no connection to them--I just feel like there is nothing to talk about.
Is this type related?
2. I spent the vast majority of my life trying to reason myself to a philosophical endpoint. This was all about logic.
Why so long? INFPs do use logic, you know, but it seems to require a little more effort to apply.
It was not one iota about gut feelings or love or anything. The 22nd year of my life was like one big existential crisis. I simply refused to resolve it with anything other than logic and the pursuit of truth.
I've never had one of those. Understanding hasn't been a problem, though I have had other problems of course.
3. I had an INFP roommate for 4 years, and the difference between him and I was obvious. In a very similar way, we were both spiritual seekers, but his approach dealt more with what I mentioned above--feelings, love, etc. He has recently strayed over toward Christianity. I was the more vocal and analytical of the 2 of us about it. I would constantly find myself facing paradoxes and fighting tooth and nail to resolve them logically. Whenever we talked about our very similar struggle, though, I felt that it never went anywhere because he always agreed with everything I said, and I felt like I would be insulting him if I disagreed with what he said.
How do you know he wasn't playing soft with you as well? To an outside observer you might have looked similar. The last sentence is unusual for an INTP. I have a good INFP friend, and we talk politics and philosophy. I never hesitate to state my opinion, but I don't make a specific effort to be cruel either.
ALSO, and Jack's going to hate this, it was easy to tell the difference between my inferior Fe and his inferior Te.
The telltale signs were blatantly obvious. I got into major conflict with each and every roommate of mine on occasion, but the INFP did not. Rather, he simply could not fulfill his duties as a roommate. No matter how much we hinted, he never cleaned up after himself, never did anything unless he was told--at which point he'd do it. If I had been told, and sometimes I was, I would react violently. It insulted me to realize that people thought they needed to tell me what to do, and I made sure they knew there was conflict.
I think this could be the attitude of either type. I had an INFP roommate for a few years a long time ago, and a lot of this could apply to either of us, or the ENTP roommate.
I'm a textbook INTP. If you doubt that, you need to reassess your personality-typing abilities.
You know, I never said you were definitively INFP, even in my mind. Only that you seem like it.
