    That's not enough to make me date anyone. Big fucking deal if you can predict my next thought sequence. It would really impress me though if you would actually do all my laundry before I even think of it. Use those powers for good. Instant turn on.

    Like the other posters, I confront the problem head on, tell all my views on the situation which are usually entirely accurate, iron out any mistakesin my perception on the situation, apologize for whatever to make them less emotional (this happens only if they are hysterical, but, Im not around people like that anyway) and then its resolved for me. Because, Ive done as much as I could to solve that problem, Ive cleared up any misunderstandings I may have had in my analysis on the situation by confronting that person, and now the ball is in their court on what they do about the situation.
    But Im definitely not in charge of their mind, Ive got it figured out on my end, so Im fine.
    If they are emotional, they should calm themselves down and start figuring things out instead of wading in their emotional state. Waddling? Idk. Anyway.
    Fellow entps, do you ever get this sort of..weird 'disgusted' feeling, like a repulsion, when people do things like give you hugs, and cheesy romantic stuff like holding hands? This is reallly really hard on me. I have to try and make sure the other person does not feel that emption that washes over me so they dont get insecure about their display of affection. Its hard for me to be romantic, its kind of something I get sad about occasionally. Because its hard when a boyfriend is real romantic, and you just stare at thrm and say "oh, thanks". Then try to act like you like it, act fake, but they see what youre doing. It blows.

    I am nowhere near as affectionate as my husband is. Holding hands feels childish. And if my hands are held, this is the *only* thing I can do with my hands. It makes me very aware that I'm being restrained. I'm not always comfortable with the amount of dedicated focus an INTP needs. But I try. He's not always comfortable with the sheer amount of topics I can cover in a 10 minute period, so we're even.

    I feel real disgust when friends hug me and insist on holding that hug for more than 2-3 seconds. I have one ENFP friend that makes me feel absolute revulsion whenever she inches toward me. It's just too much. I've told her time and time again. It really is a physical disgust and an overwhelming ickiness.

    I have no problem with intimacy, I just express it differently.

    What do you do when you realize people are idiots?
    How do you get over feeling bad for trying to find non idiots?
    Why are even the non-idiots idiots?
    How do you stop yourself from getting bored?

    How do you stop yourself from laughing at people for doing something they know is a bad idea?
    How do you get over feeling bad for getting people to trust you then manipulating them to stupid stuff because "you were bored"?

    No. But the less I think about it, the more precise it is.

    What do you do when you realize people are idiots?
    Nothing, it's a given that all people are idiots most of the time.

    How do you get over feeling bad for trying to find non idiots?
    I rarely feel bad for anything.

    Why are even the non-idiots idiots?
    Because people are complex and unpredictable. Also, lack of experience sometimes limits scope.

    How do you stop yourself from getting bored?
    I'll let you know as soon as I figure that out.

    How do you stop yourself from laughing at people for doing something they know is a bad idea?
    Why would I ever stop myself from laughing at something funny?

    How do you get over feeling bad for getting people to trust you then manipulating them to stupid stuff because "you were bored"?
    Like I said, feeling bad isn't my thing. I also don't make a lifestyle out of manipulation and abuse. And everyone is responsible for their own thoughts and actions.

    I used to hate hugs. Whenever someone would go in for a long one (like a significant other) I'd just stand there like a useless pole, thinking about nothing except "when will this be over??"

    But over the past year or so I've gone through a really difficult time in my life and suffered subsequent depression for it. And I had a friend who went in for a long hug one night and I was thinking "shit, here we go" but I really ended up feeling amazing afterward. I could seriously feel my blood pressure lowering and my head clearing of negative thoughts. So I've come to accept that hugs (well, human contact, anyway) is important for our bodies to physiologically feel like we belong and are loved.

    I still don't LIKE romance and cuddling and holding hands, but I have a better appreciation for it.

    I cant speak for Ne.

    What do you do when you realize people are idiots?

    I tell them. If they say "stop calling me that" I will then let them know with precision on ways they can not be an idiot. It usually makes me sound like an even bigger idiot. But hey, most of the time there are good results from these exchanges. You realize your external behavior. Like, she looks idiotically dumbfounded, and I look like a little brat.


    How do you get over feeling bad for trying to find non idiots?

    Uhm, by not feeling bad....
    Why do you feel bad. People do that all the time.

    Why are even the non-idiots idiots?

    Because, we all are idiots in some ways, for instance, I may know my pharmaceutacles, but I probably just butchered spelling that word. Idioticism is a situational occurence in everyone's life.*

    How do you stop yourself from getting bored?*

    Uhm, never bored, have like 500 hobbies, one new probably every week, though sometimes some dry spells. I will actually hone im on a few. Play soccer everyday. Been writing a screenplay this week, I applied financial techniques to other management goals last week, and Im becoming a
    *clown nxt week Ive been told. And my new name is "zan", to a few people I just met, I dont really know why, but hell. Tired of my first name anyway, Ive been called by the same thing for my whole life. I dont understand why people cant be called somethi different every day. There can be ways to do that nationally. Be complicated, but anything is doable. ...

    Anyway, I guess I answered your question okayly. I like that line of fast fire questioned, good line spacing too, makes it easy to read.

    How do you stop yourself from laughing at people for doing something they know is a bad idea?

    Its usually not funny to me. If they did the action and did Not know it was a bad thing to do, when it obviously was, like some Joe Blow, who does not pssess any significant degrees of mental imbalances, jumping off some airplane randomly, then Id think that was pretty funny. Thats a theoretical, I mean, the guy just fell to his death, at least give him some respect by laughing at him, I mean, reacting to his action in doing so. Im sure the guy preferred people to be happy and strive for it in life if he did something as emotionally chqrged as jumping off a plane. Idk. But. Im not a bad person, ok? I just would know I would laugh as my initial reaction.

    How do you get over feeling bad for getting people to trust you then manipulating them to stupid stuff because "you were bored"?

    I dont know about you, but, when alone? I remember all of those instances, never get over them. I just remember that I need to find extremely crazy, already messed up people to be around, so that I dont get bored and start trying to start conflicts with any nice Unmessed-up people. They dont deserve that.

    eventually one realizes that the time explaining someone's idiocy to them isn't worth the wasted effort or time that could be better spent elsewhere.

    I don't set out seeking non-idiots. I don't think like that.

    They ask idiotic questions?

    First, I speak up and try to stop them. How do you stop a train?
