    Anyway, I'm gonna flip this around and say what makes being an INTP good to me!

    1. Crazy sense of humor - I can take a random topic, string it along deliberately insane, yet logical, lines for a good half hour and plunge directly into its over-the-top conclusion, all while keeping an intensely straight face and batting away all opposition. It's the occassional person who "gets" the joke that I savor and keep as a friend.

    2. Intense love for knowledge - I can understand, retain and call forth vast amounts of information on a wide range of topics simply because, at least at the time, I was deeply passionate about them. The sheer sensation of following a line of learning is easily better than five tons of cocaine (or so I've been told...) This doesn't make me SMARTER, it just gives me an edge to appear so.

    3) The Simple Life - While I can see my life is a complex series of interrelated events, emotions and thoughts, it is not complicated to me. I feel very little need to build elaborate walls hiding what I feel or think, to add little twists or lies that only make me harder to read. I know I can appear inscrutable to others, but it is not because I've tucked anything away in dark corners. I tell people that I am an open book, but they need to take the initiative to read me.
    "The subject chooses to sit in shadow and search for wisdom by reflecting upon his trial. The problem is not that he is cold and wet, but that cold and wet seems problematic, so he embraces those hardships in order to best them."

    Since it is supposed to be the lead function for INFPs, this is the reason I rejected the idea I could be INFP (despite T being the weakest of my functions).

    I could see ISTP easier. Or ENTP. Similar functions.

    While not all of us are geniuses, 99% are at least near geniuses or above.

    Good work on dispelling the arrogance stereotype, guys.
    You're welcome.

    We had a vote, and the INTPs only claim two of the above. You guess the two.

    Thanks for the replies! If I didn't quote yours, flirt harder.

    P.S. I am awesome.

    Don't you people know that Ti is awesome?

    That's the *real* thinking skill. Yes, REAL one. Other functions we just call "thinking" as we're condescending enough to give others a taste of what we do

    1) If anyone goes to war, Ti just wins. It just does. Forget what is (in)considerate or (un)popular. This reminds of the reality. Yes, you can't campaign the other party to death with a great haircut and a round ass.
    2) Forget what those green organic food loving advocate groups tell about wind power and anything whatnot. They tell you're gonna change the world by wasting your money on bad food you're gonna pay your arm and leg for. Check with Ti, see if it's helping or hurting the nature.
    3) Just skip whatever "rules-of-thumbs", traditions or any sub-par decision maker strategies you've adopted. They're all wannabe Ti replacements. Go for the real thing. Ti rocks.

    Ne.

    1) You want to be considered a hard-working citizen? Eh, why don't you stop bragging about how "practical" or hard-working you are! How about resting your butt on a comfy couch, inventing the best string to pull and getting your job done with practically no effort?

    Thought so

    Don't you see INTP are awesome?
    1) Given assignment, calculate how many humans can fit in a wolkswagen, whom else would think to calculate that an average male body has an external volume of 70 liters, giving an answer of 54.3 persons?
    2) Who else would hear you whining, bitching and moaning about your stained new shirt, only to remind you how little significance does external appearances hold to any of the life's important issues?

    Getting serious, whom else is like this?

    No laughter there, serious.

    They love information so much as to practically lead the world to the most profound new solutions to anything. This is the same as the greatest care for the human kind.

    Others love humanity by given a coin to a beggar, comforting a child and giving money to charity. INTP love humanity by contributing their life's work to something too big for mostly anyone to understand. They're the most self-sacrificing - they don't generally get their reward immediately, not in popularity, not in many ways.. but they live for the moment to see their big plans coming together..

    Apart from doing traditional "good" to humanity, they just see the most untraditional ways to doing anything. Isn't it enjoyable? Aren't new perspectives what we all want? Want someone uncheatable? They're the guardians of all the information we have. We love everything they produce. Whom are we to bitch about how they appear when judged through completely other functions, when the last they care about is appearance?

    They're too good for our world.

    I've spoken.
    Hmm. I know this isn't a serious thread, but It's a good time nonetheless to undo some misconceptions.
    Many people shy away from typing themselves as prefering extraverted thinking, because they think that it's "because I said so" thinking. It's not. It's just pragmatic and objective thinking. Measuring and calculating, most prefferably in a way that no one can dissagree with. But if you ask an extraverted thinking type 'what is a number'?, they might go 'uhhh...' or 'what kind of a stupid question is that?', or 'get out of my office, I'm too busy for this shit'.

    By why when I here people blabbing and blabbing about how damn logical they are, I take note of it being extraverted thinking. Both attitudes are "Pure" logic (a myth about that seems to have sprung up somewhe).

    Jung sez that both thinking attitudes have to exist, because without extraverted thinking, introverted thinking seems arbitrary, and without introverted thinking, extraverted thinking seems like dull and banal.

    One one one INTP's are my favorite type to have a conversation with. In groups it can take a while before you realize that INTP's are intolerable. (And no I am not referring to INTPc.) INTP's shine when they are solo.
