    I sulked/sulk a hell of a whole lot when I would start to think that I wasn't "good enough" compared to the others around me. In high school, it was other students, and in college, it was any figment of my imagination that I could conceivably construct as a better girlfriend for my boyfriend, lol. /lame girl problems

    I would always put whoever it was on a pedestal and mourn the fact that I'd never be as good as them, hate myself a little, then experience a tranquil state of acceptance, and a resolve to make sure I did the best that I could as the miserable human being that I was. Often times, these periods of strife were accompanied by the deadline of a class project or major paper that I had yet to do. After thinking about it some time, and taking into consideration the times when it occurred, I realized it was a combination of stress and procrastination.

    I remained a notorious underachiever in high school, however.

    Lazy INTP problems.

    Yes I sulked in my younger days when I didn't get my own way. I'm glad this thread has come up though because it's prompted me to realise I no longer do - and probably haven't for many years. It's one of the hardest things in life - coming to terms with that awful realisation that you are the only person in the world with your exact set of priorities. But, until you do, life will be a misery indeed. Do INTPs take longer than the rest of the population to grow up - or is it a general IN thing?

    I don't sulk.

    I just get even.

    I am best when things are chaotic or feel the world is against me. Although I wouldn't like to consciously admit it but a bit if turmoil and despair does me good as then I feel I have nothing to lose again. Otherwise, I am usually consumed by my own arrogance that I do things spectacularly mediocre.

    If sulking = withdrawing, then certainly. It's not for the purpose of punishing the other person, that's just a beneficial side effect. More often, I genuinely want to have as little as possible to do with the person, and don't care if I convey it in my withdrawal. I'm not as invested in connecting.

    Is this withdrawing apart of the ENTP personality description as well?

    I do the passive-aggressive thing but I started to realize how badly it affected the people I care about so I've started to scale it back. I'm a 7w6 on the Enneagram so I don't like negative feeling (apparently) so the sulking usually lasts 1-2 hours. I have better things to do and think about than feeling bad about someone or something. It's sometimes unconscious to be passive-aggressive but I try to catch it before it gets too bad and force myself to converse with the person. It helps to forget what upset me in the first place, unless they do it again...

    Isn't sulking part of....well any personality?

    I suppose it could affect INTP's more but ive not noticed it, but that would just be my conjecture of course.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Yes, but also no. It also functions as a reminder that I am evolving.
