    Well, it's definitely helped with understanding and acceptance of self. I allow myself the freedom to let my mind wander without beating myself up, for example. I've learned some, not a lot, of what turns people off by INTPs. Like it's more in the forefront of my mind to talk at social gatherings, whether I want to or not. I still think it sux. A guy where I work invited a few people over to his cousin's to watch the Mayweather-De La Hoya fight, which was cool to go hang but then Tuesday he mentions how his cousin ordered the UFC Rampage-Liddell fight. "We were going to call you but my cousin didn't think you enjoyed yourself the last time."

    WTF! Do I have to pull up the transcript for the evening to do a comparitive word count? I'm sure I wasn't the quietest one there. And it's not that I ever want to watch Ultimate Fighting or spend every weekend out, I particularily hate the judging and assumptions of others. That was hardly the first time. After a dept lunch, one co-worker was telling me how others asked her, "Does Spartan ever speak?" Such an undeserved pejorative considering I wasn't feeling well and all they were doing was gossiping, anyway.

    I've kinda got a better understanding of various types and letter combination and that's helped me of late. Earlier in the month they had a Myers-Briggs course at work. This was the first time I really understood the difference between S & N. S's tend to read things as they appear. I also realize I could be prone to making things overly complicated. So I know or at least can spot the times when I get upset or frustrated over what I feel is making needless explanations to something I feel is self explanatory. Then when the first question comes I can give more of an overview as opposed to sucking in my breath and thinking, "Are you really that (*%&)# stupid?"

    At first, felt comfortable. But the criticisms came in thick and fast as I learned about Jung's cognitive functions. They seem to fit me better.

    And...I agree with not using typology as an excuse.
    “To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.”—Statement from unpublished notes for the Preface to the Opticks (1704) by Newton.

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    It's a plaything. Nothing more.

    It has really made me feel less alone. As an INTP (even unknowingly), I have had a really hard time forming attachments and focusing on anything. I'm more of a dreamer, and I get depressed because I feel so alone most of the time. Having Fe as an inferior function may make me far more competent than if I had inferior thinking or something, but I do feel things in extremes or not at all. I shift constantly from absolute (unsettling to observers) apathy to passion (that I can't handle) and sometimes even tear up a little, which is just humiliating as an 18 year old male. Knowing that there are others with similar problems and strengths really helps me to accept myself. That might be using type as an excuse, but I need something to tell me that I'm okay just being me.

    You're one of the ENTPs I actually like, so what does that mean?
