    INTP central is a awesome place.

    INTP Awards 2009 [final results] - INTP Central
    It's a thread entitled INTP Awards 2009.
    And it awards 'The Most Intelligent', 'The Funniest Person', 'The Nerdiest Person' Awards for their members, with the members voting amongst themselves.


    There is also a forum section for 'High IQ Threads'. Wow. Apparently, you need to submit your IQ score in order to participate in that room.

    Right.

    Maybe I'm being a little bit of a douchiebag here, but man, that is seriously super lame. . What goes on there anyway? Do they exchange purity rings there too?!

    I am happy to be here instead.
    yeah that place is one giant shit pile of annoying Ti
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    You should try posting in the INTJ forum. INTJ elitism is much more insufferable than INTPs.

    I find that highly unlikely. Elitist INTJs, if they don't think you're worth their time, will just ignore you--they're not actively obnoxious like elitist INTPs.

    Fortunately, most INTPs that dwell on Typologycentral aren't like that, even if they indirectly suffer because of the mere existence of INTPc.
    As a matter of fact, I've noticed that a lot of Typo-c INTPs are just as prejudiced against INTP-c as we may all be. They too think it's hell, and that this forum is populated almost exclusively with persons that suffer from severe psychological conditions.

    INTP-c regular members may well deserve our pity. Their daily lives must not be very easy, they are victims somehow, and INTPc serves as a pressure valve for all the repressed anger they accumulate thanks to their miserable existence. For many of them, INTPc is all they have, hence their extreme territorial instinct.
    The thread you mention is only a manifestation of this instinct, part of their self-celebration since they lack self-assurance so much; it has nothing to do with "intelligence" or "IQ".

    ---

    In one word: our INTPs are far healthier than the one you might spot on INTP-c.
    Our INTPs are the best of their kind, and they probably know it. They have deliberately chosen to integrate and understand a wide and diverse community; a testimony to the coping strategies their INTP-c brethren probably lack.
    This reminds me of Blackmail getting raped by INTPs because of preaching how great ENTPs are. I forgot what thread that is, but INTPs are generally cool people unless you piss them off with your stupidity.

    Even then, their response is more respectful than INTJs.

    Bullshit. The typical anti-social forum-stalking INTP considers any non-Ti value to be automatically stupid and that pisses him off.

    And really, INTJs are much less likely to even bother with people they think are stupid. Te says: "What tangible value would I gain from bothering? Oh wait...none."

    btw, blackmail's point about their real lives is dead on.

    It's exactly things like likening an internet argument to a fight which ends in the sodomizing of the "loser", that makes INTPc a place where very few non-socially-retarded people want to post. It's just looks too dorky (not saying you are personally it 's just an example).

    To be constructive about INTPc, it's a shame that a forum for the type which I am one of, degenerated into such a thing, and my (few and far between) experiences there have made me question my type, but now I have thought about it, I think it makes sense.

    For example, Ti takes things to their logical conclusion, so a site for INTP's becomes one where virtue is measured in the extremity of your INTPness (har har) -i.e. the weakness of your inferior functions. Think how bizzarre that is. It is, obviously, the diametric opposite of what INTP's who try to do anything in the real world will find is considered to be a "virtue".

    That isn't a comment on all who post there, as many are ok, but rather on the dominant atmosphere.

    Even then, their response is more respectful than INTJs
    I have to admit that the INTJ forum I once ventured onto was pretty wierd, full of extreme right-wingers as has been said. Basically I was glad they were locked away on their little forum and not outside.
    "Of course we spent our money in the good times. That's what you're supposed to do in good times! You can't save money in the good times. Then they wouldn't be good times, they'd be 'preparation for the bad times' times."

    "Every country in the world owes money. Everyone. So heere's what I dont get: who do they all owe it to, and why don't we just kill the bastard and relax?"
