    Anyway, NT guys rock my socks off for the most part.
    I was just about to say "arrogant bitch" until I noticed your post, Poppy. As a separate thought, whether NT males have it harder or easier than NT females, I think INTJs will always be better off than INTPs.

    Plus, they're more organized and I'd say just a bit better socially, too.

    Anyway, I am pretty sure NT males have it easier, however arbitrary male-vs-female debates are. Almost every female INTx has, at some point, thought about how much easier her life would be if she had been born male. And when you think about the NT personality characteristics, they tend to be rather gender-specific.

    I love NT males but notice that life can be rough for them since many do not fit into the stereotypical "masculine" category. But then again, most NT females don't exactly scream "feminine" either.

    Well, I don't think I've had too much real trouble; at the very least, the trouble I've had has always been outweighed by the positives. Yes, when I had to be in the same room with somebody extremely dumb and I just didn't say a word for the whole time people would think I was crazy; otoh they would often come to me for advice in intellectual matters and-or to "figure out" something, which I personally liked.
    I've also always loved sports - as a partecipator, not as a spectator (boring) - so I didn't have problems with that.

    Some ST guys are a bit more masculine than me, in the sense of "super-assertive", but I think I'm still quite masculine, above average probably. My opinion is that ENTJs have the easiest time among all the NT males, in terms of social adaptation.

    The world has a place for INTJ poets, ENTP armchair philosophers, and ENTJ dictators.

    I'm not sure if there's too much of a spot for INTP good-for-nothings.

    Please tell this to all of the guys who think I'm bizarre/overly masculine.

    Also, do you think this is about sexual interest? Being thought of as an icy bitch doesn't really gain anyone's favor, male or female.

    And anyway, the same could be said for women who dig the "strong, silent type", which applies at the very least to IXTX men.

    Lol. Ok.


    Look, I'm not trying to invalidate the difficulties of being an NT male, but I think it's important to recognize the parts that do make it difficult (as many others have been doing), and get rid of this "NT girls have it so easy because [insert ridiculous reasoning here]" crap.

    You have Ti, don't you? Who needs external validation?

    Anyways, I've always had this small dream of being a mathematician-philosopher. There's never enough of those if you ask me.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Although there is not a one-to-one relationship, INTP seems to correlate well with high intelligence. (By that, I mean intelligence in the traditional sense, not in the "multiple intelligences" sense.) I don't know how I inherited my natural intelligence, as nobody on either side of my family is particularly smart, but sometimes I wish I hadn't. It's a blessing and a curse. Education up through high school was a joke. I just understood things well enough that I didn't have to apply myself. As a result, I never learned good study habits or developed any self-discipline. Now, even after a full year of college, my habits have hardly changed. I actually have to put forth effort, but I don't know how.

    That's where I'm headed at the moment. Two of the other three INTPs I know in person are also headed in that direction (one to math-philosophy and the other to just philosophy). I guess we just have a natural affinity for that sort of thing.

    I'm always the foundation. With anyone who I respect or care about or who looks for leadership from me, I feel obligated to do everything in my power to make sure they're well taken care of. Couple that with being quickly adaptable and virtually never losing my cool and it makes people depend on me, I think. It's an unending responsibility, but I don't think I would ever give it up.

    I also tend to be the one who does things from behind the scenes and never really expects or receives recognition for them. Not sure if that's good or bad. I guess, I'm generally the person who tries to make sacrifices and take on the things that an NF would have more problems with. Even when I'm having some emotional difficulty, I try not to show it because I know I need to be the rock for the people around me.

    Cold and unattainable women = sexy.
    I can see why NT(J) girls are well-liked by the other gender, even if most guys ultimately settle for the easier pray.

    ISTX men, mostly. Few women would percieve say, an INTP as the "strong, silent type".
