    I still don't have a new floor after 3 years of researching and I really, really, want one. I have allergies and this carpet just has to go.
    Carpets are disgusting. What are your other options?

    Bah. I lost my pendrive with Firefox on it so my spelling is going down the tube never mind my grammar.

    Besides the correct grammar would be "my fellow INTPs and I"

    But it was the responsible thing to do. You screwed up and then you fixed it. After all who hasn't forgotten their keys and had to break into their own house?

    I mean, if you had done it while breaking into a neighbor's house after burgling it to support your drug habit it would be a different thing.

    I don't think it's a type thing at all. I know plenty of ES types who will treat your head (not to mention your life) like their personal playground.

    And between my INTP and I, the one you have to worry about exploring your head is me, not him. I want to understand. He wants to be left alone.

    True, but typical to parents they had always previously blamed their outrage on some value placed upon the object in question. This new change of tac was unexpected.

    I'm thinking now that life would be a lot easier if parents were transparent.. except I can see how that's bad too.

    Judgement is formed from experience. Surely trying to alter the judgement without new experience is illogical?

    Why should judgment be limited to one person's experiences? Why can't we learn and adjust based on other information including the experiences of others?

    Limiting our judgments to our own experiences means that we have to learn every life lesson the hard way. I can't imagine the School of Hard Knocks being the preferred method of any introverted intuitive for forming judgments.

    Just a thought: one of the most irritating things about MBTI is that when people know what their type is, they change their behaviour and "overdo" their type, especially NT's.

    So my INTP 2 INTP message is: don't overdo the INTP-ness.
