    Because I've been hoping for someone I click with romantically for a while now. I know I'm only 18 but still, not ever having a bf has been concerning. Is it more likely for INTPs to find someone later in life? :/ i hope not
    I think that this awareness is key and is likely to be the cause of the key difference playing its role while everything else will, at least, more or less or seem to almost/kind of proceed in the same seemingly pre-determined-ish manner. Its a/the critical difference though, one that you should be glad you're cognizant of and therefore more at peace in general and not concerned about what it has perhaps shown you or made less hazy for you.
    The answer must be in the attempt

    Admittedly, I have no idea if these things are INTP-related, that's just my personal impression of it. Hell, I wouldn't even be here if my wife hadn't brought up the subject of Typology.

    I remember, my first boyfriend( @ 18, yes, late-bloomer), We were going out and dating for like 2 weeks. and I naively thought we were just hanging out and liked eachother...

    until we were at a barbecue with his friends and his friend looked at us and asked " so are you guys like boyfriend-girlfriend". and we both answered at the exact same time

    Him: Yes.
    Me: No..

    Reaction:
    Him
    Me:


    thats how I found out we were dating. hahahahahaah
    Haha! I did this to my first husband!!!! I didn't get it until he finally marched up to me and said, "God damn it! Don't you realize I LOVE you?!" Then he bent me over backwards and kissed me passionately in front of all my friends . . . let's just say it became official for me at that moment!

    I am typically not very femme in appearance. It's more of a gender neutral look. Blouse and jeans sort of thing, mostly.

    I've been in situations in which I did not realize I was actively "dating" someone. I usually reacted to the realization by never speaking to the interested party again. Or I slept with them and then never called. One or the other.

    I've of course been asked if I was gay because of my lack of interest in dating (though that's not too far off as I have pretty much always been attracted to women as well as men...I identify as bisexual these days.) I just don't understand why it's so imperative that I be in a relationship all of the time. It seems like an extraneous activity that, if it happens, it's cool, but if not, why the hell should I care? The fervor with which many people seek relationships for the sake of relationships is absolutely absurd to me.

    As far as my demeanor as an INTP woman, I probably come across as aloof and bitchy. I like to criticize everything, I am known for being blunt, and I am (probably most of all) detached and "don't give a shit about anything." I've never met another INTP female, but I imagine that they'd share similar traits.

    Also, like Tallulah mentioned earlier in the thread, I do have this weird urge to perform. I wouldn't actually do anything performative in real life (unless I was severely drunk, high, or otherwise out of my ordinary mind), but I do fantasize about that sort of thing a lot. I like positive attention when I do actually get it, but I never actively go out of my way to garner that kind of thing. Probably has something to do with inferior Fe.

    It sounds weirder than it is...she works graveyard shift, insists on it. It's one of her quirks, but it's a good quirk. If she wasn't available in the afternoons to pick the kids up from school, we'd be forced to pay a daycare large sums of money so they'd have a safe place to rot until we got off work.

    And like I said...As far as social interaction is concerned, I'll take quality over quantity any day of the week.

    Fluid gender/sexuality seems to be an INTP-typical trait.

    Monogamous relationships were invented by Fs/women for Fs/women. It's quite remarkable that they so saturate human culture, considering the usually lower status of Fs/women. I don't think we'd have marriage, for example, in a world of NTs. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Maybe IRL. I don't think you ever come across as bitchy online, though quite a lot of INTP women do.

    I used to enjoy amateur dramatics. There is something about inhabiting an alien mindset and performing it convincingly that is both intellectually stimulating and liberating.

    interesting thread - nice to meet some fellow female INTPs My closest "mind mates" are usually NT males!

    I am reserved, sometimes aloof, think and feel deeply (so don't assume that we have no feelings - we just don't put them on display), need at least 2hrs alone time per day (usually late at night so I am not interrupted by anyone) to reflect and think and pursue mind connections in whatever way my interest is piqued at the time, value my mind mates as much as (if not more than) soul mates but would be terrified to sully the mind mate relationships with physical relationships.

    I have never wanted to be anyone other than who I am and have never felt the need to conform and "follow trends".

    I seem to be valued for my ethics, fairness, problem solving skills, initiative and innovation.
