    I can think of a couple people who are probably intps who I know in real life but if they're mature they're about some of the best (and hottest) people I can meet.

    That being said, I knew a guy who was (very likely) and intp and he was an incredible asshole. His callousness about other people and their suffering, and his wholesale support of the slaughter or suffering of other people if it would support him was disgusting. Also, he was so convicted of his own logic that he was unable to comprehend that someone might be smarter than him, think of something more correctly than him, or basic human psychology and the reality that it did not just apply to "others," that in fact many of his reasoning was based on his own inferiority complex and his insecure need to constantly reassert himself and that he was thus rejecting people with his hyper-aggressive feelingshiddentohimandsharedasfact. He thought whoever won the argument; that is, whoever was talking last, was somehow proven right. He also had a very Draco Malfoy-esk sneer, made me want to slap him in the face. And, whenever I got mad (say, at being repeatedly called The Socialist, because I did not support Ron Paul) that was automatically proof that he was right, and he would just singsong "I'm right I'm right" over and over until I shut up or physically attacked him.

    I have nothing wrong with mature INTPs. They argue well, teach you how to play chess, and you incidentally find yourself wondering how open they are to being snogged.

    I went with arrogance, but "other" would include SENSITIVITY. They have an irritability and dismissiveness that strikes one as EMOTIONAL (inferior Fe!). Another is poor ability to empathize, instead dismissing people as stupid because they don't do as the INTP does. Also the claim of objectivity when steeped in bias is annoying.

    I have a couple of good INTP friends who are female. They are really great people. But if I were to pick on one thing that bugged me about them it would be their dominant Ti. They are always tweaking their understanding of things in what seems to me to border on the ad nauseum. My Te wants to backhand them and tell them to step back and look at the "big picture" which isn't so complicated.

    Don't think I've known a lot of INTPs. I knew one who was an asshole, and I know one who is a sweetheart, but they tend to obsessed with logic in a way I find annoying.

    You cant really see the big picture as it truly is, unless you also look at all the complexities of it . I mean you can make some approximation of it, but that isnt the whole truth. Also wheres the fun if you leave out the joy of figuring out it completely , or at least some highly complicated aspects of it ?

    One of my best friends is an INTP.

    (I voted "Other")
    The only thing about them that even remotely gets to be a bit much to handle at times, is their inherent need to rape everything with Ti to the very core and beyond. At times they trigger their own upsetting existential crises, and I have to walk them out of it, by way of reverse Ti - getting their heads out of their ass. The search for absolute truth is commendable, but you don't do yourself any favors when you get tangled/misplaced in the details.

    The Ti-rape can delay or mess up even the most basic things.

    Don't get me wrong, I can act like a wannabe IxTP with the best of 'em, dissecting aspects of life- but at heart I like to get shit done, I guess. I'm only pretend aspie. But all that said, I <3 you guys. The over-analysis can be endearing as well as grating.

    Why should you care if your kitchen is set on fire? You should be happy to make a sacrifice for knowledge. Also, wouldn't you want to be sure that it's really chocolate and not poop?
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    The package lists the ingredients!!
    THE PACKAGE EVEN TELLS YOU HOW TO MAKE THEM INTO COOKIES.

    You don't have to think.. just put it together and make them into a wonderful treat.

    Sniff. We can't help it. It's like Ti is one huge dingdong in our hand and everything out there is an enticing hoohaa.

    At times they trigger their own upsetting existential crises, and I have to walk them out of it, by way of reverse Ti - getting their heads out of their ass. The search for absolute truth is commendable, but you don't do yourself any favors when you get tangled/misplaced in the details.
    Lol. I agree with this. Just know that even when we know it, the crisis doesn't just vanish. It still feels very real.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
