    I suppose the difference between you and me is that I end up being the pack leader in a more suitable place. Politics? Yeah, I feel for you.
    I'd actually kind of like being in a more leadership role in my work... I have to follow some really REALLY bad policies!!
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Oh yeah, that's the best part about running something. As long as things are going smooth. You can pretty much do whatever the hell you want.

    Still, it's pretty hard work in general. Don't let the good times fool you.

    I was raised by Js.. the whole leadership thing comes frighteningly easy even if I don't realise what I'm getting myself in for.....

    Good thing you added that last part. I was about to smack my TJ on your fluffy head.

    I honestly can't fathom someone being NTJ naturally. It seems so stressy. I'm fine with being in J mode when needed, but thank the lord for P when it's not needed.

    All I could think about right now was:
    YouTube - Ton Engels - Einzaam aan de top (lonely at the top)

    Shame you're not dutch. :P

    I am not an INTP but I just wanted to say...
    a) I relate a lot to what everyone is saying/ it makes me feel a bit loony

    b)my obsession with knowledge has gone so far that I have stolen an untold number of books from bookstores and occasionally some libraries...
    they're just so expensive and I NEED MORE KNOWLEDGE/like collecting them.

    At least I admitted my bibliokleptomania... and I'm not the only one!

    Bibliokleptomania (an uncontrollable desire to take books based on a <I>strong</I> fondness for them).

    errr...

    I don't know that I would call it obsession, but I think a lot of INTPs engage in hyperfocus. Along with INTJs.

    It's kind of related to "flow", which is an interesting concept.

    1. Clear goals (expectations and rules are discernible and goals are attainable and align appropriately with one's skill set and abilities). Moreover, the challenge level and skill level should both be high.
    2. Concentrating and focusing, a high degree of concentration on a limited field of attention (a person engaged in the activity will have the opportunity to focus and to delve deeply into it).
    3. A loss of the feeling of self-consciousness, the merging of action and awareness.
    4. Distorted sense of time, one's subjective experience of time is altered.
    5. Direct and immediate feedback (successes and failures in the course of the activity are apparent, so that behavior can be adjusted as needed).
    6. Balance between ability level and challenge (the activity is neither too easy nor too difficult).
    7. A sense of personal control over the situation or activity.
    8. The activity is intrinsically rewarding, so there is an effortlessness
    9. People become absorbed in their activity, and focus of awareness is narrowed down to the activity itself, action awareness merging.
    Flow (psychology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
