    This is how most NT women are when they are in love. All or nothing.
    How can you stand it??!!! A good number of my friends are (oddly enough) extremely extroverted sensors who are hospitality students at Cornell. I cringe at the thought of not being able to ditch them after a few hours on a Friday night. Day to day interaction would just kill me

    NT men are the same way when it comes to love, at least I am.

    Well, I was talking about the customer interactions being the most hated! Making small talk sucks...big time. That's pretty much all I do. (It's emotionally draining for me). So yeah, fantasizing about not speaking to them is fabulous! But my co-workers? I love them! I had them all take the MBTI test (I'm a dork) and I work with 2 ENFP's, 1 ENTJ, and 1 ESFP (my favorite and the one I'm closest to outside of work). All of us are really close. We're like family. Yay for diversity in the workplace!

    Spot on!

    I get this secret society feeling with other NTs. It's like having a code that the others are not allowed into. Verbal acrobatics, slap-stick comedy, topics that only interest us (and I think it's everything but the celebrity gossip), instant connection even with the minimum interaction.

    Yeah the small talk is beyond obnoxious. When I don't want to do it most people can see right through my fake facade.

    I often catch my INTJ brother in this pose:

    Easy! NTs are all idea people!
    They like developing, stimulating, and applying their grand-scale ideas.

    How they do that will differ, of course.

    For me this is only really true with the ENTP/INTP dynamic. Instantaneous connection. Meeting another ENTP makes me feel normal.... ENTJ and INTJ...although we get along really well it's not the same initial connection.

    A little derailment but allow me to give a little ENTP love here (it's for a good cause!)

    Having someone who can laugh with you at the most macabre, dark humor imaginable and not apologize is priceless. Someone who can understand your ideas before you've even finished explaining? Awesome.
    Example of a mentally inspired INTP during a conversation with average person: thoughts/ideas/connections are happening way too fast in my brain to translate that to my mouth to speak clearly and by the time I can speak clearly....fuck it who cares I figured it out....it wasn't that great of a thought. What? You want me to explain it anyway? Ugh...now I'm bored and this conversation has become tedious.

    ENTP's will get the gist of what INTP is trying to say with the few sputtering, random words that do initially escape our mouths. They end up not only interrupting our thought stream halfway (preventing us from hitting the killswitch button). They end up finishing our ideas and saying them back to us more clearly than we think it! For that ENTP's are awesome!

    Okay. For the OP....How to spot an NT...they derail threads! (I'm pulling this out of my ass...is it working??)

    You can spot MDP2525 by her habit of picking her teeth with a bowie knife. I know because I went frog gigging with her last week.
