Thread: Rant on INTPs

  1. #1

    Default Rant on INTPs

    There is the top 3 reason INTs sick thread and INTPs and Sociopaths thread.

    Is that enough? Maybe. But since an self-typed ENTP started a similar thread (and I'll let an INTJ and ENTJ do the honors for the other NTs)....

    Seems like a good time to start a rant on INTPs as well.

    Then we can do a comparison.

    The common ones I hear are:
    space cadet/absent minded professor/disembodied mind
    insensitive
    overly-critical
    overly self-critical
    arrogant/sees self as "prime mover"
    lazy
    easily distracted
    difficult to understand

    But in the interest of improvement, say we add implementable suggestions for improvement as well.

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

    Non-thorough when it comes to lists.

    1. They can't just stick to a decision, or just move ahead with something.

    2. They always find excuses to act in opposition to what they actually want to do.

    3. They project negative emotions onto others.

    4. They can't stand social customs, and rebel against them even when there's no reason to.

    5. They're too monotone and have inexpressive faces.

    6. They're too accepting of nature and truth, and don't question anything or anyone's right to exist/be true.

    Is that enough, or do you need more?

    There's this one INTP that:
    • Leaves his boots in the walkway where I'll trip over them
    • Has an alarm clock that is way too bright
    • Messes up the blankets and only makes them worse the more he tries to fix them
    “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.”

    Let's see if I can come up with something...oh yes here are a few things:

    -Get stuck inside their own head to the point that they can't see any other viewpoint

    -Can leave family and friends behind for weeks with absolutely no contact

    -Seem to have absolutely no emotions

    -Bland, monotone, dry

    -Theoretical to the point that no practicality can be extracted from their ideas

    -Critical of others without any encouragement to balance

    -Unaware of many of their personal feelings

    -Can be overly rigid in their thinking

    -totally inconsiderate of others feelings

    I'll be merciful and stop there....

    Inclined to furtiveness not for concern for privacy but to limit social or public consequences of action.

    May believe efficiency of cognition will undoubtedly extend to that of implementation.
