    Default INTP Addiction

    Make it go away!

    It seems to be a sick cycle. I am not really sure how to end it. Any suggestions?

    My crazy curiousity draws me in, but my enthusiasm and desire to know (sometimes!) seems to turn INTP off from sharing with me. I want to be trusted. I hold what the INTP says with highest regard for it is so rarely shared. I value the thoughts so much that I want to hear more of them, but I know I cannot force sharing. Golly, you guys are just so interesting!!!

    I guess my other question would be... does this ever work out well? Can ENFP and INTP be good friends? What is it like? Does it just have to do with time because only over time can trust be established?

    My INTP roommate told me that he thinks I am hyper. At first, I did not agree with this word, but once he defined it, I think I agree. He said, "I have never had a roommate who will just come into my room and talk. You have a lot of energy. It is not a bad thing." It seems that he is not anti me. I really think if he hated me, he would just not hang out with me ever. But, sometimes I do wonder because he is difficult to read... and he seems to like being that way... at least for now.

    And my other question is... are INTPs happy not sharing or do you guys want to? It is hard for me, but I try to restrict myself from overwheming. I provide opportunities for sharing, but do not force it. Do you like it when people take an interest in you? Or would you rather not be asked at all? Do you like being mysterious?

    See...

    Addiction.

    If any INTP told you this, you're in. Stop worrying.

    completely understand where you're coming from. My experience has taught me to proceed with caution, and pace yourself. If at all possible, dangle interesting carrot in front of their noses. And then wait... I'm the first to admit though that this is not a failsafe procedure

    Another ENFP has fallen into our trap.

    But when it comes to discussion about themselves, they'd rather talk about their ideas, since that's really how we identify ourselves. We're very eager to share our ideas about things, however if you ask us to share personal details about ourselves I can see us becoming generally uneasy, since it's a subject we don't really pay any attention to.

    Good luck with that! Although it depends on the quality of your bait.

    Coffee works, or some kind of exotic tea. If they don't respond to that, they're lame

    Ask me to help solve a problem. Tell me how complex it is, and how you just don't get it.

    Coffee is awesome too.
