    Well it's not really straight compliments like 'you're funny, or you're pretty, or you're smart' that I value the most. I appreciate it if there is more to it, otherwise I'm liable to dismiss it. But saying that, my INTP does compliments so rarely they all sound genuine.

    From other people, compliments make me very uncomfortable. I begin wishing for the ground to open and swallow me, anything to get out of the hell of having to react and respond. (My dad constantly chides me about the necessity of receiving compliments gracefully instead making some deprecating remark. argh. thank you daddy, can I die now?)

    But back to my INTP Here are some examples I have enjoyed:

    "You make me not want to talk to anyone else"
    "I love it when you wear that dress"
    "I love talking to you"
    "What do you think about X?"
    "When I read your book... it's amazing. I don't know how you do it"
    "You feel right"
    "Would you look at this and give me your opinion?" (about something he's working on)
    "You have such a natural beauty"
    "Sometimes you care too much" (not in a harsh way)

    I have learned to see the compliment in the way he treats me. The intellectual respect, consideration, selflessness, unveiling of his mind and curiosity of mine, willingness to let me see his emotions, playfulness... it's completely different than I've seen him treat anyone else. In this, I receive unvoiced compliments every day.

    I was just curious what other INTPs would say/thought about the subject. I would like more, but at the same time I'm fine.

    When I ask my isfp for help on math equations, she tends to say "get lost and see that the garbage is been taken out" :/

    Math. Shudder.
    Anytime I come across one of those nasty number things, I throw the concoction at my INTP in panic and hide under the bed. Then he presents me with a pretty little solution. Sometimes he even wraps it in a bow.

    INTP questions:

    How does one know you are angry if only an coworker?

    Can I rely upon you to be direct if I request you to be direct and let you know civility is optional?

    How do you like to be directed/managed? How would you prefer to learn or be taught?

    do you like ketchup? with pickles? and bunnies? bunny hair?

    what is your political philosophy?

    What were you like as a little baby/little kid?

    Do you like cocaine? buttercups? ketchsup on your cocaine?

    How comfortable are you talking about your personal relationships at work and are there boundaries?

    I like 5. Do you have a favorite number?

    Usually. Unless we smell a trap.

    Give us the deadline and what you want, then LEAVE US ALONE. Do not micromanage. INTPs prefer to learn.

    Yes. Yes. No. Probably allergic.

    I oppose stupidity.

    Quiet.

    Other INTPs do. Maybe. No.

    You probably won't be able to tell.
    Can I rely upon you to be direct if I request you to be direct and let you know civility is optional?
    Yes.
    How do you like to be directed/managed?
    Just tell me exactly what you expect me to do and try not to micro manage.
    do you like ketchup? with pickles? and bunnies? bunny hair?
    Yes. No. Yes. No.
    what is your political philosophy?
    Political philosophy is a subject, not an ''option''.
    What were you like as a little baby/little kid?
    I went through a lot of phases. From trouble maker to top student. I used to love climbing trees.
    Do you like cocaine? buttercups? ketchsup on your cocaine?
    No.No.No.
    How comfortable are you talking about your personal relationships at work and are there boundaries?
    Not very. Walls have ears.

    We like you, Saturned. Thing is, when we see people like for no apparent reason, Ti kicks in and we have an urge to make smartass remarks, usually in a deadpan mode. NFPs aren't big fans.
