    Default Can INxPs be openly goofy?

    Could you see an INTP or INFP being openly silly like this?





    I'm curious, because I've typed Nicolas Winding Refn and Harmony Korine as INTP and INFP respectively, but am at the same time confused by the fact that they're openly playful, hedonistic and crude like Ne-doms (they otherwise come off as introverts, Nicolas seems classic INTP). I tend to assume INxPs are all reserved and self-conscious.

    Could they just be really socially awkward Ne-doms?

    I also had a friend in highschool who was literally like an introverted version of an ENTP. He was ENTP-esque in humor and demeanor but he was practically a hermit. He didn't have that awkard neurotic serious vibe that stereotypical INTPs have.

    They're the silliest types around.

    Yes. The question is whether or not we're doing it on purpose.

    You could say that. I mean, I've mostly gotten my INTP broken of sticking drinking straws in his nose at restaurants and pretending to be a walrus . . .
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Not with strangers usually, but if that person is really freely goofy i might be able to do it aswell. With close friends who i can act freely with its more like:

    Whether or not i can act goofy really depends on how freely i can act myself in the eyes of the other person. With strangers its really hard for me to be full me and which sides of myself i do show really depends on what i feel comfortable to show to that particular person. I think this is why some INTP profiles say that INTPs are chameleons.

    I can. I think of it as partially detaching from myself for a while with the part of my personality still in operation now having freedom to express itself differently. Of course when the moment has passed I feel embarrassment and shame for doing it. It's more of a spur of the moment thing, exclaiming beforehand that I shall be goofy does not guarantee its occurrence but just increases the likelihood.
