    I've never really been interested too much in conspiracy theories. Except for the moon landing. Oh, that was a classic.

    Unless unless, I am creating the theory. I do this often as I go along .

    But I have never really been interested in prevailing political conspiracy theories.

    I don't think it's INTPs who are into conspiracy theories, it's INTJ's dood.

    If an INTP does have a pet 'conspiracy theory' I get the feeling it's more just kicking around an idea for giggles and 'what if'. It's the Ne playing. Though because it's Ti leading it doesn't seem as truly playful as when an ENTP is just throwing out ideas. I used to be big in conspiracy theories when I was a teenager to early 20s. I think it's the Ne running rampant.

    I totally think you're just creating a conspiracy theory about NTPs being into conspiracy theory.

    I'll out you yet! I swear to it. Just...gotta...get some data first...

    Ne produces possibilities.

    Ti is not grounded in reality.

    = Conspiracy.

    I agree it's Ne + Ti. Sometimes it's just for the fun of throwing various ideas and theories around, and sometimes it's because Ne + Ti + negativity = paranoia.

    A good reminder for me is this:
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.


    However, sometimes our paranoia is correct (small scale paranoia) because we often accidentally piss people off and provoke their wrath. So if we are unaware of having pissed them off, slowing recognizing their wrath and passive aggressive revenge comes as a shock because we don't understand where it came from, inciting further paranoia.

    I don't think it's NTP's, I think it can be malfunctioning N all around- so if someone's an ISFP with this extreme case of Ni-rrhea, they may have a theory related to their own town's government, workplace, or school system. Something set in their minds related to money or ulterior motives. Seems like these circular theories are just a way of the human mind trying to lump everything bad that happens into a "grand explanation." It's really no different than trying to find say, a unified theory of the universe- It's just more negative. Difficult to break out of those all or nothing thinking patterns sometimes.

    Honestly, I think it has to do with popular media, movies especially.
    Remember the movie 'Enemy of the State'? that's the kind thing I'm talking about. People get it in their head that there are organizations in the world that are almost omniscient in their power. Anything that can’t be explained directly through video evidence points to the workings of some secret force, government, cabal. Yet the US Govt couldn't get Bin Laden for 9 years. I’ll bet there’s a theory about that too…
    So yeah, it’s people’s over-active imaginations at work.
