I would just rather assume that I could memorize the algorithms and instead spend those minutes obsessing over the future or how to improve a relationship of mine. Others might consider that a waste of time. I guess it's an INFJ thing.
    So everything you do must contribute toward a "greater purpose"?

    I take it you don't spend much time reading books, watching films, going on vacations, celebrating holidays, or viewing irrelevant personality forums, then?

    Yeah, most things I consciously set time apart for contribute to a greater purpose from my view. I like to read because I feel that good books build character, but if I don't feel it's moving in that direction, I don't finish the book. True that I don't watch TV or movies. I do go on vacations if I feel like I need to relax so I can become more efficient when I return. I feel like this forum can help me better understand the people around me, which is a great thing for the big picture of life.

    I just joined the board today, and let's just say that I'm not surprised to already be defending myself against an INTJ. And all because I don't want to spend time figuring out the Rubik's cube. What a shame.

    Basically, you act according to underlying conditions. Welcome to the sane world!

    I'm an INFP, and I love Rubick's Cubes. I just love puzzles in general, especially word-related ones. I love discovering patterns and how those patterns can be used as a general concept to solve a puzzle, which is exactly what the Rubick's Cube is about.

    I've always had strong leanings toward NT though, even if NF wins out in the end.

    When I was about 8, I peeled all the stickers off and reapplied them so it looked like I solved it. My parents thought I was a genius...they've been very disappoined ever since.

    Rubik's cubes (3x3s, at least) have been analyzed to completion. It's doable to understand it the way I understand tic-tac-toe. If you want a better test of intellect (as well as hours of practice and rote memorization), I might suggest you play chess instead.

    Instead of pulling off the stickers off of Rubik's cubes and reattaching them, I pulled the cubes off and reattached them. It was cool to look at the inside of a rubik's cube to see how it worked.

    Damn, now I want to take apart a 4x4 rubik's cube.

    What do you call a person who got hold of a well scrambled Rubik's cube for the first time and solved it in less than 6 minutes? memory or speed of thought process?
