    Cool Do all INTx relate to sociopath characters in popular media?

    Have you ever related to Dexter or Rorschach(from watchmen) ? I can often relate to them and even Serial Killer Carl Panzram?

    Point is.. Are all my INTx bros potential sociopaths?

    If so. We need to increase our gene pool!
    Eccentricity has always abounded when and where strength of character had abounded; and the amount of eccentricity in a society has generally been proportional to the amount of genius, mental vigor, and courage which it contained.

    INTx's and Sociopaths often look similar on the surface, but the real difference lies in the intentions of the person. INTx's can be sociopaths but are not by definition.

    There aren't many sociopaths in media I relate to because those characters tend to be very shallow and superficial.

    Or at the very least, if I am sociopath, I'm much better at it than they are.

    So an INTx with bad intentions is a Sociopath?

    I'm a time-bomb ready to explode?

    Also.. what do you reckon is the MBTI of Anders Breivik? Sounds NT-ish to me!

    Being a sociopath is showing no remorse or consciousness.

    An INTx is on the other end of the spectrum, however since we vaue truth above all, we may do or say things that on the short term might be harmful, but for the best intentions, it can be seen as sociopathic behaviour to others that don't see the full extent of the reason of that INTx's actions.

    Thanks

    As for Anders Breivik, I don't really care to know and he is unhealthy above all. So he isn't able to represent any of the types. But considering his (unhealthy) idealistic worldview, I would be partial to say he is NF. He just sucks at being one really badly.

    yes exactly. I just got a job where they told me the reasons for hiring me was that they thought I had an approachable and friendly exterior, had a good telephone voice and saw me as a versatile experienced, progressive individual that wouldnt say no to a challenge. Id say thats more fitting of me than being a sociopath. So I dont need a lot of socializing? That dont mean I dont like being with people. All I am is a skeptic that may not open up as easily as others. But I know my friends appreciate my qualities.

    I bet INTXs are a minority among real sociopaths. Real sociopaths are so irrational they can barely think long term. That said, I relate a lot to Dexter. I've never watched the others.

    Intuition is the supra-logic that cuts out all the routine processes of thought and leaps straight from the problem to the answer.

    Same here. I cannot relate to how he does people in, but the inner thoughts he has - about people, himself, relationships, emotions, etc. - I can definitely relate to.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
