    I have to admit that I did laugh out loud.

    The "sticks to a philosophy and never admits they're wrong" seems more a pattern from any type of person with strong political views, and is not associated with INTP in particular.

    I didn't say no other types shared those behaviors just that they were not immune to them.

    FWIW, I don't think it's all that uncommon for INTPs to forget to eat or even forget they have eaten and eat again. Some love to cook, but others will live on soda, chips, and frozen pizza. I'm not sure there's a whole lot of in between if they are left to their own devices. But obviously, I have a limited sample to observe.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    Yes, this was a very thoroughly and profoundly thought out statement.

    But I'm sure someone will get around to making a thread for every single frickin' type -- all in the name of fair play, of course.
    Well put

    I find the negativity threads to be a kind of labored, pedantic, crumpled up approach to understanding personality systems. There seems to be so much emphasis on 'analyzing' types by categorizing and placing value judgments on specific behaviors. That approach seems nearly meaningless to me because those surface behaviors can be motivated by a myriad of different thought processes, cultures, and communication styles. The moments that seem most valuable in these online analysis are those that focus on the nature of the thought processes of each type, without placing any value judgments.
