    I only wear dresses with pockets.. lol.

    But Yes, I own several dresses but I only wear them for an occasion, never just because I felt like it on a sunny day.

There's also been a lot of immigration from various cultures so that minority populations are growing tremendously, bringing their cultural beliefs and approaches with them.

    Also, you can examine the sort of changes in American music, clothing, decor/home, and whatever else that have been going on for a few decades, and the diversity of cable network channels and what sorts of shows are popular. N's still a minority, but you're really seeing a big increase in SFP style thinking -- textured experience, immersion in the moment, exploration, acceptance of diversity, not planning ahead but going day to day and being flexible, relaxed clothing styles / informality.

    Compare that to the modernist structured regimented SJ culture of the 50's. That clash of the remnants of that culture with today's P-drifting culture is one of the reasons the old school complains about the "loss of moral/traditional values."

    That's basically where I'm coming from here -- large obvious prolonged cultural trends.
    Hmmm. That makes a lot of sense sense. Not sure what kind of evidence I'm looking for but your examples are great. Is there anything documented that links the shifts to type? Some sort of study? I guess that's what I'm wondering about.

    Some time ago, I saw statistics from a large consulting firm - 45% of the senior executives at this firm were SPs. It completely shocked me because my perception of the ranks of exeuctives in large companies are dominated by TJ and presumably those TJs would prefer relating with other TJs (?) as their consultants. Clinton NFP, Regan SP, Bush SP - all Ps... Jimmy was some sort of J and he didn't do very well.

    I'm quite interested in the implications of this.What will happen?

    damn straight. A dress with pockets makes me stupid excited. Romance! Adventure! Practicality!
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

    I want to meet an INTP woman. But they're invisible. I'll be at Uni next year though, so maybe.

    I wear dresses all of the time, but only so people think I have a clue how to be a "girl." That and it reduces the time it takes to get dressed by approximately 45 seconds each morning. One item, done.

    Dresses are good for that much... except then you do have to make sure the shoes match.

    (Converse high-tops usually don't cut it... depending on the dress.)

    I think the main thing is, I wear whatever I want to wear. If I want to wear a dress, I wear a dress. If I want to wear raggedy jeans and beat-up sandals, I wear raggedly jeans and beat-up sandals. I do what I feel like doing and what makes sense to me.

    Pockets. Heh.

    Alright. So, there's not much of us out there, I think about 1% of the population from what I last read.

    Being an INTP female is like going against the grain of what society (well, at least my parents), wanted me to be. I can't even count the times my dad asked me, "why can't you be a normal girl?" My mother, to this day, still sends me what she considers to be fashionable clothes, make-up, jewelry and other miscellaneous things she believes I don't have, but should use. I find it somewhat hard to relate to other females, and most of my friends tend to be guys.

    The above paragraph pretty much sums up how my mom is with me.....exactly how my mom is with me! I'm a fashion charity case. I LIKE t shirts and jeans.....I like no make up and not doing my hair......efficiency rules!

    The fact of the matter is I prefer books over shopping. I like my computer more than I like going out sometimes. I don't really care WHAT I wear as long as I'm covered up and comfortable. I have a bad habit of tripping/running into things. I'm not emotional because I don't understand why some girls get so emotional over things. I'm just not what people expect to see in a girl my age. Don't get me wrong though, I love being INTP, and I don't mind being a girl. It's just strange sometimes, when people try and change who I am to fit social norms.

    While not emotional, I do seem to have a sensitive ego, and take things very personally. i think the main 'emotion' I have is frustration.....I tend to use emotions to accomplish things socially, but am not sure that I genuinely 'feel' them in the traditional sense of the word. Or the way I process them is upside down, inside out and backwards compared to the rest of the population. I dunno. I certainly can relate to pressure to be different than I am. It feels constant and really wears on one when you are already self-critical and socially awkward/neurotic. My lack of emotion, I feel, really lets other's down and hurts their feelings - yet I can't 'fake' it. I just can't. That is more in close relationships - smoothing the rough edges as much as is INTPishly possible for social graces is entirely different.

    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? And non-INTPs... how do you feel when you first meet, then get to know us PINT girls?

    I don't think many people really do accept who I am. People know 'of' me. I'm the weird one, the mascot. The one who doesn't dress attractively, and who dares to say things. Wicked sense of humor - but keep a lid on the really outrageous things that go through my brain....Some try to 'help' me, others try to change me, but the older I get the more I am realizing that I'm just the way I am - and am comfortable with it deep down in the dirt of my soul.

    (P.S. I apologize for any angst in this post... I'm just a tiny bit frustrated with people right now.)
    I have also learned to appreciate angst - and accept it as a part of my daily life. No apologies necessary.
