    Personally, I prefer people predicting my moves as they see it as reliability, then if the mood stricks me I can easily become unpredictable too my own ends.

    So caring for others means for an intp being strategically predictable to look reliable ?

    Not inherently, but it can. I actually genuinely care about a few things and some people, but I'm selfish enough to not care if I'm supposed to or not. The tact involved in it is when I don't care and I want someone to think I do and vice versa. Most lately though I have been too lazy for tact or the enigmatic arts. I have found it fun in the past, but as of late it has not been important to me or even a focus at all (showing its self as a lack of caring).

    ok, I am just wondering what to do with intp threads. It's often that an intp starts a thread like "I dont care for anybody" and then 300 other intp's reply: "Yes me too" and then the thread is dead. It's a logical discrepancy in itself because why then even bother to start a thread like that ?!

    I've sometimes the feeling with intps they want to tell me something, but when I ask, I get the response "Close your mouth or a fly flies in it". But I'm learning, one day I've figured you guys out

    I care about things that interest me.
    I care about people I like.
    I care about people being accurate and honest.
    I care about my principles being violated as little as possible.
    I care about survival and my own personal happiness.
    I care about those who are suffering.

    Those are the main things I care about.

    I would also add: I care about being competent in (insert favorite activity).

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    I can see where your comming from, but the reason I started this thread is because I was meaning to figure out some base principles, see if my INTJ friend is right in that it's neiter healthy or normal to not care about nearly anything.

    Quite. Now the question is how did you (being anyone reading this) arrive at these conclusions? Or have they just always been that way?
