    I know the sorts of things I need to do and say to blend in. It's not a great mystery. It's just.... why bother?

    I knew someone an college, probably another INTP, and she told me something that I've held on to "it's true that things won't make you happy, but people won't make you happy either."

    That being said, I've put effort into improving my relationships with my family. A trick I've found recently is that I have just as much power over the quality of my relationships with someone as they do. I can feel myself slowly becoming a better conversationalist, and that's awesome. It just involves taking what seems to me like risks. Normal puts people to sleep.

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Absolutely love how smart, clever, witty and self-assured they can SEEM, as it helps me refocus, rebalance and reframe my own pov in a way that allows me to address my insecurities and move forward

    Absolutely hate how they often seem to feel the need to point this out to everyone else and put them down in the process to feed their own ego coz their ability to put themselves in other peoples shoes hasn't caught up with their cleverness yet, and the ironic hypocrisy of needing validation by mocking others who actually have the balls to openly ask for it and admit their vulnerability hasn't sunk in yet. For all their intelligence, they somehow remain blind to this

    Love how much more logical and detached they are than me. Makes for a pretty interesting role reversal to hang around them and realize that suddenly I'm the emotional one. The T vs. T dark-humored banter is also pretty amazing. (Even better with NTPs, because Ne banter is my favorite.)

    Hate when they think they're being logical and they aren't.

    In my experience this isn't necessarily NT, but I suppose there's a personal compatibility factor to it as well.

    In general, tbh. I'm specifically talking about the obnoxious need to camouflage insecurities by bragging excessively about them being a superior being - and yes, Im using a hyperbole here to make my point, so no it's not always to this extreme or obnoxiousness. I get where it stems from, I empathise with it coz god knows that being paralysed by insecurity aint no joking matter but man, do you (general you) have to make it a chain reaction where you pass it along to the people around you so *you* can feel better about yourself?

    Granted, other personalities do that on their own territory as well. SJs often bitch and whine about how others lack a sense of duty and are unreliable, for instance. But this is an NT thread and I was specifically asked what bugged me (and what I loved btw) about NTs. What bugs me is the combination of the undeveloped ability for empathy - or thats how it comes off (NF bitching about their territory I suppose ) - though it could just be the unwillingness to use it, I suppose and the incessant need to be derogatory to others to feel better about themselves, thinly disguised by the reasoning that 'lesser beings aren't worth the effort to treat with respect.'
