    Is an INTJ likely to have an easier time communicating with INTPs than other types because of the shared INT, or is it just as likely that the J/P difference and overall reversed function attitudes (Ne vs. Ni, Te vs. Ti, etc.) override this? I would be interested in hearing anyone's ideas on the particular pitfalls between these two types.

    Actually this is how my family "communicates" if you can call it that. I have always been frustrated with this in particular because it's stupid and a waste of time. This is one thing I have little patience for.

    pretty much, I easily get derailed fom conversations and go way off topic, even my own. (My principle used call it... something I can't remember right this moment but I will edit this when the word comes to me.)

    @Coriolis, I think really the only way someone's going to have an easy time communicating with an INTP is if either one of them has an immense amount of patience.

    Having re-read this thread, I think I'm going to have to revise my original response. We NTPs can be a giant pain in the butt. We kind of expect everyone to kowtow to our independence and our awesome thinky projects and our alone time. All of which we do need. But having been on the other side of it, it sounds really arrogant to announce that someone needs to learn how to deal with us in THIS way, and if you don't, we just can't deal with you. (Not aimed at the OP specifically, just at the NT approach in general.) Even I have a hard time being asked to deal with that. It's like announcing, "I don't really intend to consider your needs." I'm one of the most independent people I know, but I don't like being pushed to the side until you have time to think about me.

    Yeah, we do need someone who understands that we're weird and different and that we need time to do our projects, etc. But we have to remember that there is another person in the relationship that has needs, too. And that maybe they need us to suck it up and go to that thing that's important to them just because we love them, and not because we have any great desire to socialize or whatever. And that doing so isn't them controlling us. It's just showing someone you care.

    I guess the main thing that irks me is when someone gets offended by topics etc that I might bring up in discussion that to me is just interesting and not to be personalized

    But even that I won't hold against you and will try and make you feel better/explain why I'm talking about these things

    Meh people are just too anal

    Hi!

    It's 2016, and I just wanted to say, that over the past couple of days I've been attempting to resolve conflict with an INTP. I've been very confused as I've been trying trying to start a relationship with him.

    I used this guide, and my GOD did it work wonders. I even went as far as to try out the "flowers" thing on him! And he enthusiastically agreed, haha!

    Thank you so much for writing this.

    That's all~!

    Oh dear. I'm sorry in advance.

    It seems to go this way for most INTP chasers.

    Good luck!

    I was so excited when I saw this thread. "Omg how to talk to an INTP!!! I can read it and see if it resonates with me and also share my experiences"
    Because, like most INTPs, I really love using my experiences to produce ideas and conclusions. And I love talking about them.
    But it's just a criticism of a really good post.
