    Default TypeC INTPs versus INTPc INTPs

    Do you think anything tends to separate the kind of INTP who prefers TypeC over INTPc, and vice versa? Is the TypeC INTP more likely to be social? Less likely to be a self-preservation Enneagram type? Less misanthropic? Maturity? Any trends you might see?

    I was on INTPc for a while, and it was enjoyable, but I never really poked around here. But now I definitely favor this site over INTPc.

    I'd be interested in hearing what INTPs and non-INTPs have to say on this.

    A TypologyCentral INTP might appreciate adversity and bantering to a higher degree.

    Seems like any other internet forum to me. Which probably points to mysanthropy more than anything.

    However, the idea that we are some how superior because we supposedly have a wider range of types is just being silly.

    the ones here are less pointy than the ones over there come across as usually- more relaxed about posting here and more likely to be happy to interact (if that's what you call what intps do! ) with other types

    the intps here don't gang up on other types and usually leave the bragging about how they're so much smarter than anyone else to the INTJs

    that's just the impression I get... I've lurked over there a bit, and occasionally wander over to poke at a certain member there who doesn't come here often enough, but that's about it!

    INTPc certainly has its charm. There's much greater range of academic discussion points available at any given time than there is on TypoC - that's for sure.

    That said, the site is steeped in meta-analysis (probably to be expected when emphasis is square on a single type) which can become tiresome. Of particular note is the tendency to self-congratulate when it comes to matters of "intellect" as an INTP. This is likely just defensive posturing as a response to social alienation experienced offline.

    Oh, and INTPs tend to cluster their identity when in groups. It's kind of a weird social phenomenon.

    Indeed. I'm actually in a long process of observing/studying/contemplating adversity vs. conformity/homogeneity/etc.
    Pros and cons, mostly. Adversity wins, so far, but it is much more volatile.
    But it makes the engine run, so to speak.

    Basically this. I also use it for good entertainment recommendations. Books, movies, activities, etc.

    This place just has a quicker pace, and is more about typology than the other place, which is what I was attracted to in the first place.

    This is something I found very bizarre and quite humorous. It's like the thought process is: "Wow! I finally found a similar classification of people into which I can pigeonhole myself; just like the rest of those stupid, boring people I hate!" And for some reason this is exciting.

    Not really something I ever found myself relating to.

    This place is faster, coddles more and is more tolerant of things that irk INTPs. It's more ESFP-ish.

    INTPc has more assholes and is more rough and tumble on everyone. It's not as hospitable to certain types of posting, and this makes it refreshing to some INTPs.

    Why does it have more assholes? Because INTP-type assholes are not welcome here, but well tolerated there. And because the main assholes have been there long enough that they have lots of influence, madmin or not.

    Anything is more ESFP-ish than an INTx.
    If the site was truly "ESFP-ish," I doubt I'd be here at all.
