    this reminds me of a person I disliked.hm...ok it's gone now.
    Philosophy is pretty interesting so far, I started my first classes. but I have a feeling I still don't understand it too much.

    It's obvious to me that it helps to at least be introverted to be philosophical. Extroverts are better at doing stuff than thinking about it.
    I don't wanna!

    I think it's an N thing. I know Ns of all type that are into philosophy. In fact, I'd say the INTJs I know are the least into philosophy of all the N types I know. I doubt this is a general trend, though.

    I study philosophy at uni, and I'd say that the majority of people studying it are introverts. My philosophy modules are the one's in which I am most conscious of people who stand out for their introversion, so I think it also contains a lot of polar introverts; people who are totally content by themselves and seem fairly introspective and caught up in their own thoughts a lot of the time. My class is also predominantly N's, which is to be expected I suppose. In terms of T/F, I'd say mostly T, but a few of us are F's. It's actually difficult in an academic context to determine T/F; I'm sure some people in my class would presume I was a T, I know in the past people have thought that when they've only seen me in discussions. As for J/P.. hmmm, probably mostly P's, although interestingly the J's we have are J squared.

    I think INTP's are the type who would view philosophy most favourably; they're reflective, ideas orientated, and a P so prepared to engage with a variety of ideas. It's funny, although INTJ's definitely demonstrate some interest in philosophy, I see very few of them who love it; my younger (INTJ) brother told me he'd find my course infuriating, since so many of the ideas are just *wrong* (wry smile). I actually think a lot of the philosophy I study is totally illogical and nonsensical, and various philosophers contradict eachother etc. so of course you will be exposed to ideas in the discipline which you disagree with. I derive enjoyment from discussing ideas I think are rubbish though, whereas J types might be inclined to see it as a waste of time, or, in actual fact, irritating.

    Oh-h! My bad! I thought that the word important was implied in the philosophy question...

    Then again, who am I, an NF, to say this isn't the greatest strand of thought since...EVER!

    I just know how to feel a lot...

    And I feel a little confused...

    Here I am, little lambs. Let all the bells in whordeom ring. All the crooked bitches that she was. Mongers of pain. Who saw the moon. Become a fang. Your funeral, my trial.

    Philosophy? Who loves Sophie? Wha? I have no idea. No I don't like philosophy.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    I think that any person of any type with high intelligence can enjoy philosophy.
