    The shame is that this issue should be a no-brainer for everyone: Jim has no substance to offer behind his idea that inferior Se "causes" (or even has anything to do with) hypersensitivity to one's environment. Whereas, on the other hand, I have a link to a test, and in fact when I was first searching for this information I saw other interesting links that stated the same thing, that hypersensitivity is related to introversion - PURELY, Jag. That means it doesn't NEED Se, Si, Te, Ti, etc etc. as causal factors.

    I'm not really picking sides so much as pointing out how futile it is to try to convince someone else of something, even with facts, without them wanting to change their mind in the first place.

    Oh I'm sure you picked sides, and chose wrong. Now you're just saying you don't care anyway.

    somehow i missed uumlau's first post, i think it was right on.

Science was "Oh, look, cool, dinosaurs," and regurgitating scientific "facts." Then there was the social aspect, where no one at that age was anything like me, so ostracization was the order of the day.

    And what happened to me? I grew up and got a Ph.D. in physics.
    this sounds exactly like my INT brother too. he does shitty in easy subjects because he finds them boring. he's brilliant at bio and chem now in high school, though, and he's going into advanced programs.

I just wish we could help him figure out what his interests are so he wouldn't be so bored all the time. One of his problems is that he is dyslexic, so he hates reading. I think if he loved reading, he really could engage his brain with whatever his interests are.
    i'm all with uumlau on this one, how does he like videos? INT brother loves the science channel, history channel, videos explaining how things work and exploring places and things...

    This thread takes the wedding cake on "derailment." And I wasn't even involved!

    On topic answer: Your son sounds pretty INTJ to me. If he is bored it is probably because he is lacking mental challenges of some kind. You could look into having an assessment done by a counselor just to make sure there isn't something being missed that is simply outside of a personality type. Are there any summer classes/camps/etc that he could attend?

    It's true, because I read an article on it. Oh, but I just can't find it right now.

    Oh good, so now I'm an Introvert?

    I'm glad you're such an expert. What would the rest of us do.

    That's not even a good comparison. Now go to school.

    My point IS that I don't see anything naturally abnormal with his behavior unless it starts interfering with his life and others in a way that is really paralyzing, uncomfortable, and bordering on unhealthy. If it's not, then it's eccentric or peculiar. What I meant to say (and not derail the thread but maybe I wasn't clear enough) is that I was like that quite a bit as a kid, though not to *that* extent, I admit, and no one thought I was totally bonkers. Eccentric maybe. Weird. Ostracized because I was a bit bizarre and came from Mars. But I didn't turn into a serial killer or an antisocial idiot. It's all good. No worries.
