    But this is only theory, remember?
    I blatantly refuse to follow my predestined path. My T will smother my Fi into nothingness.

    Are you saying you take pride in being insensitive and even envy INTP's for being considered more inconsiderate than you?

    No I do not pride myself upon insensitivity. I prefer it. I never said anything about INTPs.

    But if you prefer it, doesn't that mean you value it as something positive and thus (would want to) take pride in it?

    No. Not really. I use insensitivity to control myself. For me, it is not a luxury, but a necessity.

    Ah, but wouldn't it be better to call it rationalism then.
    In my opinion, those two are no synonyms. One can be rational and still be empathic, and take (other's) emotions into account. The insensitive can't. But this may well be personal lexicology

    Good point. I can be empathetic, but I on no account let my empathy rub off on my emotional condition.

    I like INTP's logicality. It, not the insensitivity, is something I would pride myself in if I had it.

    When my good friend INTP told me he could spend a week at a time not saying a word to anyone, I was astonished and in awe! I could not imagine that anyone could leave me alone for more than 12 hours (not counting sleep) without expecting me to say something back. I did not know that such people still existed that were blessed with such a magnificent period of silence who are actually living with a family. Boggled my mind.

    I always and will always speak the same language as an INTP.

    True. Unfortunately, that 1 out 1000 person doesn't seem to be around here much.


    btw, out of curiosity, did anyone get what I meant when I said "We're all about maximizing our potential. That's why we don't want to realize any of it."? When you realize potential, it's no longer potential, thereby reducing your potential and working against maximizing it. Did anyone get that? Or did I rely too much on the reader?
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.
