LOL Ok so I have to post this. This was a drunk chat conversation that I had with a male INTP friend of mine who was trying to convince me that falling in love can be a rational process. Its just too good not to share with the rest of the world. It has INTP written ALLL over it.
(Sorry if some of it isn't exactly PC, my INTP friends aren't always worried about political correctness when they have a point to prove and are drinking lol)
Friend: i just thought of another analogy! lol
Me Myself: lol great
Me Myself: I may need another drink for this
Friend: your heart and your mind are 2 diff people (not yours explicitly but in general)
Me Myself: tell me about it
Friend: i sense the sarcasim yet i will continue
Me Myself: lol
Friend: the heart is like a skinny ass combodian just freakin hungry for a cracker or a leaf or weed or whatever it is they eat over there
Friend: the mind is the intellectual educated person who is schooled on botany
Friend: and values cleanliness
Friend: and wants to stay healthy and no barf and all that
Friend: so the cambodian sees this flower and says " gooood lawd thats a pretty flowa.. ima eats it!!"
Friend: but the botanist says... "you moron... thats a poisonous cactus with spines and venom!"
Friend: and then Kamala (the cambodian) says.. " i dont care, ima hungry."
Me Myself: The problem with this analogy deary, is that the botanist may have studied SIMILAR plants, and he may have an idea about its properties, but he doesn't know because in THIS world, every single flower is different
Friend: and then Jules (the tightass thats always right) says.. "fuck you, i dont wanna be sick!"
Me Myself: lol
Friend: so Kamala eats the flower and gets sick for weeks and loses a lot of weight and goes blind
Me Myself: hehehe, I'm gonna publish this somewhere... the world needs to know Jules and Kamala
Friend: and after that Jules takes over and only eats the brown grass cause its the only thing that wont make em puke and will sustain them
Friend: so after a few months Kamala gets his fight back...
Friend: *sight not fight
Friend: ya with me?
Me Myself: "She cannot die because she has never lived". The botanist is the one playing it safe for all time, and never finding anything worth spending his time eating because he refuses to try anything that seems remotely dangerous
Friend: well he only does that because Kamala's dumb ass ate the flower
Friend: knowing it was poison
Me Myself: Kamala is the one trying to teach Jules (these names are awesome btw) that life isn't worth living if all you ever do is stay on the sidewalk
Friend: so now Jules is being safe and Kamala is blind and incapacitated
Me Myself: No guts, no glory
Friend: im not done damit
Friend: so now Kamala gets his fight back sorta... he has to squint
Friend: *sight GD keyboard
Friend: this keyboard is free with the tv btw
Me Myself: (sure, blame it on the keyboard and not the lush behind the wheel)
Friend: so Kamala sees a flower one day....
Friend: its not quite a pretty as the previous one but he likes it and says.." Goddamit, im hungry... thats a pretty flower!"
Friend: "Ima eat that muthafucka!"
Friend: to Kamala's surprise... Jules agrees! and says "that flower is not poisonous! Let's eat it!"
Friend: so the heart and the mind agree and they eat and live happily ever after until a lion sees them and fucks them both up
Possible Points for Discussion:
1. Phsychoanalyze the INTJ and INTP responses... (Good luck)
2. Discuss who should have more influence... Jules or Kamala
3. Whatever else you may come up with... I'm not fussy.
