    I always hated being INTP, for those "happy INTP" how the hell do you keep yourself happy and enjoy life?
    Learning how to knock oneself out of the observation mindset and take action when necessary and when it will affect one's life positively was key for me. Knowing when I got to the point of overanalyzing was as well.

    On a related note, taking life by the balls has nothing to do with type and has quite a positive effect on one's psyche.

    Nicely put! All very important for the INTP personality.

    I especially like the "feel free to analyze things, but do not overanalyze". It's so easy to do, but so very fruitless and time consuming.

    Related to "taking life by the balls", I have learned/am still learning to "just own it". Just do you, live life to the fullest, make no apologies (unless you've really caused some hurt - which will happen on occasion), and OWN IT!

    In my own head, I think in innovative and bold ways, but in the presence of others it's always been so easy for me to exude this soft-spoken, apologetic, "poor me", I'm going to cater to the needs of the group, type of persona.

    That doesn't mean to not show compassion. It just means get out there and do what you do best to the fullest regardless of what others may think or say.

    Don't fall into the trap of "I AM this personality type, this is what I do." It's just a self-perpetuating cycle and you may end up excusing yourself with that safety net. I hate how ridiculously P I am, for example. However, if I can get excited enough about plans I'd like to carry out (with Ne), then I am more inclined to plan carefully. Make it work for you. You are working within general preferences, not boxes that dictate your behavior.

    I know what you mean. Sometimes I hate being an ENTJ because its not easy when being a free thinker makes you realize something's not perfect but no one else also wants to do anything about it.

    I think that's the problem, I just don't care about stuff.

    well like I said, it's TONS of things(I can't list it all). I just happend to blow up in the heat of the moment. I'm calm now(I think I have mood swings). I just happend to miss my deadline for crap load of stuff, now I'm gonna fail. I don't have any motivation to do anything.

    I'm skilled with crap load of stuff but not great at ONE thing...... it's because in my sillly mind I know I can achieve it so I don't even bother trying

    I'm sick of not being able to have normal human interaction (too much stuff to explain with this part so just ignore this statement)

    How did those successful INTP get they're where they are now?

    parents on my ass, life is meaningless right now(and stressful).

    If you're not using Ne much, start. It's our interface to the external world.

    Well I hate my type too. Deep down I'm a damn INTJ. If I make too many plans I get depressed when most of them fail, so I end up going through highs and lows and having a hard time reconciling the things I try so hard at and end up failing at. I love how INTJ is called The Mastermind. Maybe they only get seen that way to the people who don't really know them that well because the natural focus of their intent is on viewing and understanding everything around them. I'm embarrassed to put INTJ because I don't live up to the super-smart image (and I'm not bad at using Fe when I want to), and I'm not really a bookworm unless it's something technical that I'm interested in.

    So you're not the only one...I think if I could have a superpower it would be the ability to be seen as an ESTJ to the world, but think and process things like an INXX type. Wow, I have a lot say tonight, don't I?

    Goodnight.
