    Wat? You call yourself INTP and you're dismissing joking?

    Damn it! I thought this was a 12 step program to cure INTPness.

    Well, anyway... 12 steps to become an INTP physics nerd:

    1. Break your front door's lock by trying to pick it by the age of 8. This is essential, you will forget keys, combinations, etc. often.
    2. Construct your own super-soaker at the age of about 9. This is one way for a socially awkward INTP mute to gain some social capital.
    3. Blow up something by the age of 12. A capacitor is good enough, but the bigger the better.
    4. Solder a blinking LED based display for space invaders or mastermind by age 15.
    5. Program your own computer game that requires excessive button pushing, and get yelled at by your dad when your siblings play the game and almost break the keyboard--preferably by the age of 15 again.
    6. Read Einstein's popular version of relativity by the time you are 16.
    7. Take apart your front door lock, and get yelled at for it. Lock picking, safe cracking, etc. are essential for an NTP physicist (read Feynman). I learned how to pick the Samsonite 3-digit combo pretty quickly (not by trying every combination) because I kept forgetting the combo (very INTP).
    8. Work in some scientific capacity (a technician or whatever) in at least two fields other than physics by the time you graduate high-school (mine were Geology and Biotech).
    9. Participate in Science Fairs, Math Contests, Computer Programming Contests, Physics Contests, and chess club through out high-school. Also, playing a sport or two or more is also a good way to get some physical grounding.
    10. Get two or more college degrees in three or less years--just to see how pointless that is.
    11. Get hopelessly lost in life.
    12. Be content that you "fail at life" but like figuring things out and start your career in physics.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I'd guess the INTJ list is much shorter. I'm not a physicist (I'm a mathematician), but here's the way I became one:

    Step 1) I want to be a mathematician.
    Step 2) Become a mathematician.
    Step 3) Poison your enemies (this is not an essential step, but particularly dedicated INTJs will find it an amusing diversion).

    Can I just say that is truly awesome. Seriously.

    you do not choose intp.
    you think any kid who wants to be can be the next dalai lama? nosuchluck.

    there is hope for your offspring if you have any: isolate them until about age 10. then they should be hard wired with intp mannerisms, no matter their inborn type. although thier state will be unnatural, they will still manage to inexplicabley aquire groupies...

    run along now *throws colourful jingley ball*
