    There is nothing about being an 'INTP' that makes you prone to being a loser or unhappy. As a matter of fact, there is nothing about any particular type that entails such an outcome in life. How you can enjoy life and keep yourself happy is a difficult puzzle for everyone that does not have any easy answers.

    As long as you don't kill yourself you will notice its better than the alternatives. If you don't believe try forcing yourself to be an ESFJ for a week.

    Can you be more specific about what you don't like about it? Explain it in general, and I'm guessing there's a particular situation that got you to write this post.

    Hah, an INTP who feels like he or she is on top of the world is usually an ENTP. Though they're all to stubborn to admit it.

    How the hell do you work that out?

    This is why I dislike putting INTP as my type, people assume you are a lazy geek and don't do anything worthwhile. It really is a bastardization of MBTI, it's like assuming all SJ's are soldiers and housewives.

    Most of the time it's enough to be content, but happiness will do the rest of the time. For me it was learning not to apply the standards of others as to what it takes to be happy - sometimes it seemed to work for them, but just as often I discovered it didn't, being just one more attempt on their part to find some elusive pleasure from life.

    An INTP should be able to find the answer, except it will likely be different for each of us. It took years to realize my own judgment was the best course to follow.

    Really good books always help the journey.
    Naked to unknown forces, fortune evades mere understanding. The trial of effort.
    The dream of change. Such a place might Hell be to thought and action.

    Learn to Like the traits that come easily/naturally to you, the ones that put you ahead of others and as for your less than desirable traits, everyone comes with that baggage. I don't always like being an INFP either, but self-pity and whatnot won't get you anywhere different, won't make you anyone else. The only difference between you and the other happy ones is that they don't spend time pitying themselves, not difference of functions. It's what I have learned; I am prone to envy.

    Everyone is extremely dissatisfied with something. The ideals I believe in do...not...exist in more than 2.7% of the population.
