    Default INTP Maturity

    Basically I just turned 18 and realised at the start of the decade I was 8 and the last 10 years have flown by, but i've realised I haven't really matured at all or developed any self-confidence, is this an INTP thing ?, do you develop confidence at this age from within and carry that to the outside world or are external events more important in creating that confidence ?

    What was it like for the adult INTPs on this forum,when you were around my age in terms of maturing ?

    How did you develop self-confidence ?

    other NT's aswell

    I can't speak for INTPs, but as an INFP I can vouch for this same feeling of stasis. It can be terrifying, but as George Orwell wrote : "Who Controls The Past Controls The Future. Who Controls The Present Controls The Past.

    You control the present, and you can avoid repetition.

    In regards to confidence: Lack of confidence is a result of not having something to confide in. You attempt to confide in the past, but it is not adequate by your measure. So, you must change the future in order to create a new past. In an effort to create more confidence, you may have to spark some momentum. Start slowly in whatever you're doing, whether it be social or academic.

    Happy birthday!

    Why is seeming smart better than being confident?

    being an eccentric genius is fine
    asperger obviously has some problems associated with it

    I like that piece of advice thanks even though it is much easier said than done.

    Do you consider being eccentric a problem? Why or why not? And either way, some people view eccentricity as necessarily a bad thing since being eccentric means being different. Humans can be hostile toward people they don't understand.

    But for example say I find something to confide or i've found something to confide in, if nobody acknowledges my talents through dismissing or ignoring them how do I still develop confidence.
