    Default INTP, do you recognize yourself in this statement?

    "If pushed beyond their comfort level to form commitments or emotional bonds, they may reject a relationship entirely."

    Taken from Personalitypage.com.

    To answer the question, yes I do. Or did.

    Uh yeah. I do. It may have happened a few times before. May happen in the near future.

    Yeah, I want to at least feel like I have a choice, whether I do or not.

    Ahem, is there another way to react?

    This isn't INTP specific. Who enjoys being cornered?

    I don´t think it´s about being cornered. Just being uncomfortable with the situation.

    Yes. To a large extent, I have to be comfortable with the "terms" of the arrangement. I am flexible - I flex and flex and flex, but as soon as I feel that someone else's "will" is being imposed on me without my approval, I will either start getting very blunt with them, or cut ties altogether. Basically, I won't let it happen. If you don't grant me space, I will create it. I'll be extremely direct and tell you that you need to back off. If that doesn't work, I'll just disappear for a couple weeks. Your phone calls won't get through, I won't be home when you come looking. Your efforts to pin me down will be fruitless. That's in very extreme cases, but it does happen now and then.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    In the past definitely, but seems like less of an impulse as I get older.
    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.

    Yes, I identify with this statement and I do agree with Metphor that it isn't just limited to INTPs.
