    I blame German chocolate.

    Oh, crap, I didn't eat any. I guess it's just me being weird.

    Thumbs up

    Nice accurate list which you obviously put a lot of thought into. Well done.

    My personal favorite as past relationships go:
    12. My INTP usually hates explaining his reasoning. If you question it, it makes it sounds like he's incompetent. This gets back to the brainstorming - he's already done that. To him, it might seem like a waste of time. "I've figured things out - why do we have to talk about it for five hundred years. This IS the best answer....I've thought it out so much."
    I've had big problems in the past with SJs who consistently second guessed my reasoning. Drove me nuts.

    Or maybe all that Stasi porn got you all overly-excited.

    Anyways....this is a good list. I'm not INTP but I do have Tert Ti, so I could relate to alot of what you sid - and also mentioned that alot of it could apply more generally to other introvert types.

    Thanks, Trent!

    Here's one related to it, too.

    If my INTP has done a lot of research on a topic and has a lot of experience but people don't listen to him, although his ideas are logically sound or correct, and also true in practice - JUST BECAUSE HE DOESN'T HAVE A TITLE.

    Ohhh, that makes him climb the roof.

    (P.S. I would never do that, but his SJ parents do it all the time, and it drives him bat-shit crazy. Especially when at the end of the day the banker/doctor/lawyer tells them EXACTLY what he said and they didn't respect HIM but do respect THEM.)

    Thanks, Peguy, for your input. It would be interesting to see if people with a well developed Ti in general relate to some/most/all of these points. Or even others.

    I was dating an INTP/hung out with an INTP for several months, and this about him DROVE ME CRAZY.

    Is it really bad to question someone how they came up with something?

    ENFP: So, I'm thinking we should do X and Y about Z.
    INTP: No, I think we should do W.
    ENFP: W? Really? I thought about that, but i don't think it'll work.
    INTP: It's W.
    ENFP: ... Why are you so certain?
    INTP: Because it is W! Trust me, I've thought about it.
    ENFP: Well, I thought about it too, what makes you so certain?
    INTP: Because, I thought about it. I don't need to explain myself.


    Well, I dunno, I think in brainstorming sessions, you DO NEED TO EXPLAIN YOURSELF. You can't just go around stating 'facts' just because you see them as 'facts'.

    Ahh, sorry, big rant. Brings me back to those days and I'm getting all pissy, lol... does Ti have to ALWAYS WIN against Te?? Can't Ti be wrong??

    This drives me nuts, too. I had a friend who would complain about her problems and ask what she should do, and I would tell her and she would admit I was right. But then she wouldn't take it seriously unless someone with a penis told her the same thing.

    Here's a link that gets into what I was saying, pointing to general differences between Introverts and Extroverts:
    Introverts have more brain activity in their frontal lobes and when these areas are activated through solitary activity, introverts become energized through processes such as problem solving, introspection, and complex thinking.

    Extroverts on the other hand tend to have more activity in the back of their brain, areas that deal with processing sensory information from the external world, so they tend to search for external stimuli in the form of interacting with other people and the outside world to energize them.
    Introverts love anything that involves deep conversation. They get energized by discussing subjects that are important to them and they love see what and how other people think, to connect the dots, to dig deep, to find root causes, to use logical thinking via debate in conversation, etc.

    And what’s more, introverts can do a lot of things extroverts are naturally good at - give great speeches, schmooze with everyone, be the life of the party, charm the socks off of total strangers - but only for a short period of time. After that, they need time for themselves which brings us to the fourth point.
    They need time alone like they need food and water. Give them their space. There’s nothing wrong with them. They’re not depressed and they’re not sad. They just need time alone to recharge their batteries.
    Top 5 Things Every Extrovert Should Know About Introverts


    This seems to touch alot of what you were mentioning LL, and this isn't even looking at INTPs specifically. I can relate to alot of what was mentioned as far as introvert characteristics, esepcially about how too much socializing tends to drain me and how I need alone time to recharge. Also how I can actually be the life of the party, but only for brief moments at a time.

    I could also get into a common problem of the subtle assumption that there's something wrong with being introverted when extroverts try to offer us advice or help. I don't know if this comes up between you and your husband per se.

    Hmm, I generally have no problems with those who want my reasoning explained

    If anything, I'd think they were idiots if they just took everything I said as truth.

    You're absolutely right. At these times, you're in a Ne/Fi/Te mode, and he's in a Ti/Ne/Si mode.

    ENFP: Let's look at all the options!!!!!! What makes us feel good??? What gives us the optimal benefit with the least cost and the BEST time????

    INTP: Okay, ***mull, mull, mull, grind, grind, grind, mull, mull, mull, compute, compute, compute, twist, twist, twist, mull, mull, mull, analyze, analyze, analyze, input, input, input, options, options, options, analyze, analyze, analyze, experience, experience, experience, ideas, ideas, ideas, analyze, analyze, analyze ***PING***

    And the answer is: 42

    ENFP: Well, first I thought it could be 12. Or maybe 3. It could even be 5,609,720. What do you think?

    INTP: It's 42.

    ENFP: 42?!?! That's interesting. Never thought of 42. Why?

    INTP: 42.

    ENFP: Yes, I understand, but why.

    INTP: 42.

    ENFP: Jesus H. Christ, are you a computer with a 0/1 function? I asked WHY????????

    INTP: 42. It's 42. I don't know how many times I have to say 42.

    ENFP: AJKLSJFLJKLAFLJKDJFKLSJKLDSFLJDJLLJFDKSLJKFAKLJSFJ JLFDJLLDJF

    INTP: Why are you getting emotional? I gave you an answer. A simple, easy-to-comprehend-even-for-your-dumb-ass answer. 42.

    ENFP: WTF?????????

    INTP: I repeat, 42.

    ENFP: WHY THE FUCK IS IT 42????

    INTP: Just because your inferior mind doesn't understand, doesn't make it un-42.

    ENFP: Dude, I'm trying to understand why it's 42.

    INTP: The truth is it is 42.

    ENFP: What a tard. Doesn't he understand THE WORDS COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH???? WHY? W_H_Y????

    INTP: Foooooooooooorrtttttyyyyyyyyyy-twwwwwwooooooooooooooo.

    ENFP: I fucking give up. Okay. Asshole. We'll do 42. But if it fucking goes awry, I'm holding you personally responsible. GOT THAT????

    INTP: 42.

    ***two hours later***

    ENFP: OMG!!!!!! OMFG!!!!!!!! 42 IS LIKE THE AWESOMEST, MOST FANTASTIC THING EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!! ***hugs***

    INTP: I told you. 42.
