    Default INTP Girl IRL

    I met one. I'm still totally like The point being I never truly thought I would, out here in the world, though rationally, i've certainly met more than enough of the population to hit the odds.

    Actually, I've known her for awhile...just not very well. I haven't paid her any mind whatsoever, though I was beginning to suspect something was off because her eyes always seemed to indicate she wasn't quite in the room.

    It took my bff ENTJ, who just so happened to sit at the right end of the table, in order to figure it out for me...they had a severely intuitive ("out there") conversation, and I couldn't be socially rude enough to excuse myself from my end of to join it.

    Now, I've been going over all of our past interactions to help me figure out why I couldn't see her a mile off like I do with INFPs. Last night, she was watching another ENFJ in my group play me in chess; common among the sensor girls who, are like, too stupid to learn the game, but also interested in seeing something beyond them for a few minutes. She stayed for both games. The other give-away moment was when she made an "acknowledgment" sound when my opponent made a mistake that led me to near-victory (we stalemated twice--go figure, right?--once in his favor, and once in mine, based on who made the foolish mistake). I already had suspicions, and that particular one made me seriously wonder if there was a brain in that head of hers.

    So, now I'm torn between intentionally creating a bridge, or just kind of standing back and studying her passively as though I don't know, and letting things run their course. Everybody is different, afterall, and typology or not, they get along with different people for different reasons. My chess opponent is the "dominant" ENFJ in the group, as he's older, and the group's musician...a talent which I'm only now developing myself. I'm curious to see if anything develops between them...even more interested to see if something were to develop between the ENTJ and her and be a sustainable relationship (I highly doubt it, but it's interesting to watch, nonetheless).

    Meanwhile, I'm jazzercising my own Ti. --Fuzz

    You must not meet many people, at least approximately 1 in 100 girls are INTP

    Either that or you're bad at typing... in which she may not even be INTP

    The harder you are to reach, the harder you are to type. Keep that in mind.

    Curious, so you're saying that she'd be a difficult one to connect to by virtue of personality? Or by virtue of how she's acted?


    Hmm...curious indeed. :smokespipeandstrokesbeard:

    Another curiousity...her Facebook is painfully bare. Not full of sensor sports, or intuitive musings...there's nothing there except a projected and extremely superficial "skin". This makes me EVEN MORE curious; what, oh what, might she be hiding from? I look back on all of our interactions...friendly, yet shallow...perhaps intentionally so? She's this way with everybody...nobody really knows her.

    So my ENTJ friend generates enough respect points in a day to openly state his controversial "N" views that make S-peeps and even some INFJs run in the other direction in fear of the possibilities. This openness seems to have triggered a response from her, and unlike that doomed helicopter trying to signal the alien ship on Independence Day, he actually got an answer that didn't involve green shit.

    For now, I will utilize my NT counterpart to gather data. I don't intend on lurking...I may say something...but for the most part I feel like I'm on safari. Best to observe in natural habitat before poking around.

    Well, I personally don't act INTP in public, so unless someone knows me well I'd imagine it'd be hard to type me IRL. Congrats on finding a live specimen for your research

    And yes, there are such things as INTPs who overuse emoticons

    Indeed...I almost feel as though I've discovered a cryptid. Looking forward to observing mating habits.

    So you don't act INTP? I guess that makes sense. None of the ENFJs I know act ENFJ if we can help it Oeufa. I wonder if that's why N is the rarity...curious...I know S can come from N and N from S, but I wonder if there is a genetic connection at all to personality.

    i don't do facebook but it sounds pretty familiar although i don't know enough INTPs to have much knowledge of how we generally come across. What you say makes me suspect she may be sp/so type, like myself. i tend to start off superficially. if INTPs have the social instinct they can start to loose some of their INTP identity because
    The social instinct focuses on the group, hierarchy, status, the big picture; it essentially focuses on connecting to that which is larger than the self.
    sp/so INTPs tend to have a better social face than sp/sx INTPs but i think we're actually more secretive. we're acting a part to keep others away and unsuspecting. i deflect questions about personal things, even things such as my hobbies, with smart alec comments, humour or by directing the question back to them. i'm sure people get sick of it some point, especially sx types.

    if the ENTJ engages her in word play or an intellectual topic, he probably will be one of the most successful at getting a response from her. That'll be good for you in getting to know her ebcause she'll have someone she's getting comfortable around and will eventually open up to more people.

    What Edge said. I don't do Facebook or post random details about my life on social networking sites. For one thing, it's boring. For another, I don't want the world knowing my business, even if my business is boring. For another, I don't really feel the need to chat about my life unless it comes up in conversation with a friend. I really hate people digging around and prying me open, because I feel like they're doing it for their own amusement. I open up to the people I feel naturally comfortable with, and people I can trust. Otherwise, you're getting superficial-level, chameleon interaction. I don't have the energy or the inclination to be an open book to everyone in the world.

    Also, I'm no sensor, but I wouldn't be fascinated by watching people play chess.

    Remember, INTP girls are kind of like the cats of the dating world. The more you try to impress us, the less we're interested. Be yourself, and if she finds you interesting, she'll probably find a way to talk to you about a common interest. But that still may not mean she's interested romantically, because sometimes we just like to talk about interesting stuff.
