One thing that's cool about being an INTP is when the manipulation starts, I just "check out". Smile and quietly walk away. Phone off. Basically you are done until you "come back to earth". I just don't play the game at all.
I don't say this arrogantly, I'm just not going to be manipulated. Deal with me straight or don't deal with me at all. I've noticed with certain NF's (whom I love, BTW) that when they think I've been too logical or "too this" or "too that", it starts to become a game. They're going to "teach me something" or they dynamics change in a way that seems like you're in a chess match with the person. For me, as soon as I detect this (which is usually as soon as it's happening), the game is over. Put the chess board back in the closet for a few months - I'm not going there with you.
