A little help here please.
What does it mean when an INTP picks your brain for what
you think about just about every topic you can think of.
What does it mean when you can talk about everything except
for my life is slowed up by thought and the need to understand what I am living.
It means he is enjoying the conversation more than you are. If you were sharing things about each other, you would enjoy it more than he would.
One way to compromise is to talk about both at the same time. Like you can start by talking about MBTI, and then say "What type of things are important to you and how does that demonstrate how you use Ti?" (This assumes he knows quite a bit about MBTI.) Or if he likes chemistry say, "What happened in your life to make you realize you liked chemistry so much?" He'll eventually steer the conversation back to topics rather than feelings, but hey conversations should be give and take after all.

I do not mean to be trite...
...but if I had to guess, it sounds like he likes you.
If an INTP finds you boring or has no interest in you, he won't even bother asking you questions. If he continues to ask you questions, he finds you interesting. And often an INTP without social confidence will discuss every impersonal topic under the sun, because he has no idea what else to do...

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. 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
Well he has a girlfriend so I'm sure it's not that he "likes me". I know that he enjoys analyzing everything. Yes BW he may hate being personal but that's been part of our past being personal..(prob why I have such a hard time keeping it inpersonal). Thanks for the input. I've already thought about this lots so I'm thinking I just wanted to hear some input other than my own thoughts swirling around. (before you ask yes I've asked what's going on. my question has and is being ignored).
Yeah, he probably likes you, he's just uncomfortable talking about the "two of you" because it would probably incite feelings or thoughts which principally betray his current relationship. I'd keep it quiet for now.
