    I agree with NTPs.
    That's why they are such a large percentage of this board,

    It's not like J types, who can (and usually are) be obsessed with something, but that obsession lasts way longer.
    So, you're saying E/INFPs obsessions don't last as long as E/INFJs?

    It's like systematic ingestion for me sorta? Something sparkly (new concept, idea, cause, whatever...) grabs my eye... I lunge for its jugular and grapple it to the bitter end until I discover something else that must be completely absorbed and conquered.

    I easily get obsessed with things... the Nazis, the Civil War, Helen Keller, Presidents, World War II, Psychology. MBTI is my current obsession.

    This board. I need to ween myself off from it, or maybe just go cold turkey. Its killing my homework production( another reason I can justify putting it off)
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Yikes! That makes for an easy loophole.
    what about being obsessed for half a minute every time and a new obsession comes along?

    Its not type related.

    I tend to have a obsession that usually lasts about 1-3 months that I research and think about constantly, then I drop it and move on to something new or go back to an old one.

    It makes it really hard to stick with anything long enough to become good, which sort of sucks. I have a dusty guitar sitting in the corner, unfinished drawings and paintings, half read books, and plenty of other projects left uncompleted.

    I guess it has made me a pretty well rounded person though, so it's not all bad.
