    Like when I'm serious people think I'm joking, and when I'm joking people think I'm serious?

    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    Thats very possible. He is a very sarcastic person. When he says something and sounds serious but is joking, I will sometimes tell him he is full of it. He has told me that I don't need to tell him that every time. Sometimes he says stuff to be funny, but it comes off sounding serious. I'm still learning to tell when he is serious and when he is joking. To me it all sounds the same sometimes.

    Haha I'm an INTP (I think) and sometimes I can't even tell with other INTPs. I keep looking for that glint in their eyes or the ghost-smirk and then I know.

    And to answer your initial question, no I don't feel that misunderstood. Sure there are some differences in terms of how people perceive me and how I really feel - they think I'm aloof/angry/cold etc when I'm really just lost in my head, thinking of something; they think I'm being difficult and argumentative when I'm really just trying to clarify something...but it doesn't really matter to me what people think as long as those who matter know what's really going on.

    Good luck in your endeavour.

    LOL.
    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.
