    INTPc shows that nature abhors a vacuum in a social group. There you can see INTPs filling the roles of Extroverts, Sensors, Feelers, and Judgers to varying degrees. I find it fascinating as hell. I think any group will develop a pecking order. I also think well-adjusted INTPs admit to themselves that they are capable of such unsavory things -- they don't scorn those other functions, but come to terms with them and eventually get some good out of them.

    But a lot of INTPs on INTPc disagree with me on that.

    P.S. You prankster taggers make me laugh. Sometimes you make me cringe too, but you make me laugh at the same time.

    Is it any wonder that people treated so unkindly by plenty of INTPs at that site stay here and talk shit about INTPs there, in dumb broad strokes?
    Of course they'll describe them as all manner of uncool and evil. Think about the origin of this site. It's human nature. Rejection stings.
    Well to be fair, on occasion I talk shit about here over there too.

    I agree muchly. I see this at all single type forums, for any type system. I've seen ENFP groups, type 4 groups, what-have-you. With only one type around, the contrast of the differences between the individual people of that type flare. It helps demonstrate how relative the personality type concept is.

    The other thing that always happens with one type groups (INTPc included) is paranoid solidarity and defensive use of identity. That is, the thinking goes "all other types suck, if I like you, you are my type, if I dislike you, you cannot be my type." Much conflict flows from this reasoning.

    Not that everyone in these communities thinks like this, but enough of them do, and the ones that do are acrimonious enough, that it's quite conspicuous.

    This is a very good observation, I hadn't thought of quite putting it in that way.

    I also think well-adjusted INTPs admit to themselves that they are capable of such unsavory things -- they don't scorn those other functions, but come to terms with them and eventually get some good out of them.
    Yes it is the more Fe-developed (and Si-devloped though they are less keen to acknowledge this), i.e. older, setlled, INTP's who are the "in-crowd" at INTPc. I don't find that bad especially, but it just means that the "in-crowd" are basically middle-aged middle class folk in the US. The level of in-jokes, again, aren't a terrible thing, but I just can't relate to the world they reference.

    The other side of the coin is that the younger folk tend to be pseudo-intellectual in the extreme and not very good at referencing themselves externally, in fact they often reject this as "sensorish" and will call you such , and have an extremely elitist contempt for the masses. But there are not many with a real interest in anthropology/sociology and a desire to be a real intelelctual, i..e. critiquing the world around you, but as a constructive, engaged member of it.

    So we have a forum of settled, content middle classes on the one hand, and the angry but hermitic children of the middle classes on the other, and I think these are two sides to the same coin. There is a saying in politics that says "scratch a sectarian and you find an opportunist"...I don't know how understandable this is to others here, but I think it applies.

    This is a shame as INTP's have the personality type conductive to being an intellectual, but so few use it. But at TypoC I have found many more people with a neither misanthropic, nor completely adapted, approach to the world, but rather one of engaged, constructive criticism. I like that.

    If this forum ever removes my right to be a pseudo-intellectual, I'm going to have to file a complaint.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    The second group grow up and become the first group. That was my story.

    I don't post a ton there at the moment, since not as much resonates with me + I'm pooped a lot... but...

    ... yeah, I enjoy reading and observing.

    It's like my own little Rat Park for INTPs!

    P.S. You prankster taggers make me laugh. Sometimes you make me cringe too, but you make me laugh at the same time.


    For the record, I try to be witty on occasion... rather than just banal.

    Yup, the narratives are cycles.

    Funny how few of us realize that up front.
