    true that.

    But then again if you know how to talk to one, you'll find them to be pretty friendly.

    I have some INTP friends who are quite cold and distant(and unlikable of course) at first. They even kind of push you away when you try to talk to them. But once you prove that you have something interesting to say......... ' man they take off ' they start talking and won't stop. You won't have time to take a look at the time.

    Some are even adventurous. They seem to get a kick out of breaking the rules as much as my ENFP friends. But they must be dragged into it. They won't drag you into it. You have to drag them.

    They talk about all the crazy things that you could do. And come up with sadistic ideas to F@#K people up, but wouldn't really do it. They have ideas, really really cool ideas.

    And they don't mind making a fool out of themselves. They are not at all conscious about what others think about them.

    Having been a rather unhealthy 5w7 in my teenage years + alcohol. I usually was the one dragging the others into trouble. :P

    But I've learned a lot about myself that way and am nothing like that anymore. Even though I am still quite adventurous.

    I do not think this is type related. Nor do I think it is characteristic of INTPs to hate people.
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    ^ Misanthropy is equal to being annoyed with mankind as a whole, right? I don't think it has to do anything with type. Or at least I don't see why an 'F' type is necessarily more content with society than a 'T' type. SJ's tend to "support and maintain institutions" though, so I guess they may be the least misanthropic compared to the other temperaments.

    You're right on that one, thanks to our P-ness(lol). I think that it's maybe more of the INTJs hating people, well at least that's all I've noticed from my INTJ dad.

I can have it perfectly organized in my head all at once, but structuring the sequential delivery of material so that others understand is a different matter entirely, and requires a different skill set that I am apparently lacking.

    I never said I trusted people, but I don't really distrust them either, you know what I mean? They're just going to do what they're most likely to do.

    Disliking != apathy

    The types I've seen most often tromping through the house muttering how much they hate (stupid) people have been ENTP and ENTJ.

    For me, so long as said idiots can be avoided.... apathy reigns.
