“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
When you believe that you're a loathsome human being, you're acting in a manner that proves you're a loathsome human being, otherwise such a belief would have no means to express itself as a reality. So if I want to become worthwhile to other people, I need to become worthwhile to myself, otherwise I'm just going to keep pushing everyone away or withdrawing from them as the expression of my self-image.
That's the truth hidden in the old cliche about how you have to love yourself in order to love others: if you don't love yourself, other people will only confirm your inadequacy, and the more they do that, the more impossible it becomes to experience positive emotions toward them.

Christ, I think it's a little childish to get upset because someone doesn't want to have a phone chat with you after you've only talked over AIM a few brief times. It's not like I have some kind of duty to smooch it up with every casual acquaintance of mine.

That would be interesting to research. You could just be exaggerating; then again, I'd say it's a pretty ITP thing to maintain autonomy and a "safe zone" by just silencing people who violate boundaries if one feels incapable of negotiating that boundary directly... or if one feels like the person in question has already been unresponsive to their needs.
My list isn't very long, and it's not static either.
Oh that wasn't a generalization of all NTPs. It was a pointed observation of a few NTP boys who feel a need to talk about how they're ignoring me. That's not really ignoring me. That's just game playing, and I'm always happy to oblige.
