    I like them... if I get to pick them. (Then again, people argue about my type all the time -- I'm a hodgepodge of T and F.) But I don't own that many. I have far many more t-shirts than dresses.

    I don't like uncomfortable clothes, or clothes that get in my way too much, but I like clothes that exude "me" and who I think I am, an an identifier.

    Basically, the toss up for me is usually between functionality/practicality vs self-expression/aesthetics. And age might have something to do with it; I might not have liked dresses when younger, but I'm older now.

    I'm definitely all for being whoever and whatever we are, or doing what we think is sensible, regardless of what box society tries to put us in.

    I'll have to remember that.

    I feel uncomfortable wearing them. Shirt and skinny jeans are my new uniform. I'm told I look nice in a dress, but I'm sceptical.

    I've been told I'm "standoffish" to strangers and I actively sit away from people I don't know very well. If I interact with strangers, I'm polite and have an annoying habit of mirroring their mannerisms. But once you get to know me I become a goof. Ne makes us comedians.

    If I were to have an INTP girlfriend, would she say "you continue to perform adequately" after sex?
    Someone's complacent in their performance. But I would probably fall asleep straight after. If I was really comfortable with you, your chest would become my pillow. Permission not required.
    Um, yeah.

    Agreed. That is, like, verbatim how I interact with people.

    (you don't get to see "goofy jenny" in person unless I know you or feel comfortable.)

    There's typically at least two sorts, the more Ti-focused INTP and the one with more Ne or other traits mixed in, which softens up the "robotic" cliche.

    This I like.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    May not be a woman, but the goofy thing is something that definitely me. I see my self as a two-sided coin. The material is intellect, one side is stone-cold objective, the other is goofy.

    So, other INTP females... how does it feel to be you? What things did you have to overcome in order for people to accept who you are?
    1. First of all, self-acceptance (VERY hard. I oscillate between loving myself so damn much and doubting myself. Working this out with my counsellor).

    2. Being with the people who respect and appreciate me. The saying, "Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind' may seem cliched, but true.

    3. Letting go. Not everyone is fond of me like a hundred dollar bill. So what? Just do my thing.

    And to the question what does it feel to be me .. hmm, I can't quite say. I have a million different sides. Different people get to see different sides. I would describe myself as having a bit of a masculine shell, and a feminine center ... but only those who really mean something to me gets to see the very soft side of me

    'Nother INTP lady here.

    As a child, I really struggled because the other children clued in immediately that I was different, and it was like sharks scenting blood. As a teenager I was insecure because I didn't feel confident or attractive or feminine. As I've aged, I've become more comfortable with myself both as an INTP and as a woman, and I can confidently say that there's nothing I'd rather be than what I am.

    I'm into comic books, knitting, rock operas, physics, and 19th century gothic literature. I study foreign languages in my spare time and goof off looking at funny videos on youtube. I've discovered my own appeal -- no, not every man is going to fall all over himself for an INTP girl, but there's quite a few who find us intriguing. I think most every boyfriend I've ever had has told me, "You're not like any other girl I've ever met!" Well, I'm probably like approximately 1% of all the girls out there, so no, you probably haven't met many like me. I'm a lazy, procrastinating, intellectual, passionate, atheist rebel, and that's pretty damn okay.

    I refused to wear makeup for years, but I recently bought some and began wearing a little bit at work. I also enjoy wearing sundresses, and have slowly become interested in jewelry. I was about 9 before I could swim, and 22 before I could drive, so somethings I do in my own time.

    So, other INTP females... how does it feel to be you?
    Normal. Other people are freaks.

    I wish I weren't so lazy though...

    What things did you have to overcome in order for people to accept who you are?
    It was difficult but not insurmountable. Ostracism was not something I was unfamiliar with while growing up, when among certain icky people, but most of the time I hung around with classmates I got along with. I mainly avoided cliques. If there was pressure on me to turn me into something I wasn't (someone 'normal,') I only gave a quick glance before deeming it boring and turning my focus onto something more interesting. I have had comments and things given to me suggesting that I be more normal, especially those telling me to be more 'like a girl than a boy' (my grandmother once remarked to my mother that I was born a boy but ran too fast and dropped my boy parts; but more out of affection than pressure to change me, really.)

    Eventually I learned to not give a damn. Most of the time I find people are too busy worrying about their own image to really care much about mine, and that suits me just fine. Also, I think I would have had a much more difficult time with this had I not had some amazing friends and teachers in high school who were just as bat-shit crazy as I was. One of those crazy teachers (an ENFJ) introduced me to MBTI, which made me realize there were others like me!

    I don't think I ever tried to make others accept me for who I am. That totally depends on their part. I've been told that I come across as arrogant, though I attribute that to the distance I put myself from people I don't know. I've also been told that I have a bitchface, which handily filters out people I probably wouldn't want to socialize with anyway (people who judge character by appearance alone.) My friends also comment that I look lost quite often (which I am, I won't hide it)
