    I don't have kids, and I'm fairly young; I also believe completely that I am an INTP. What I do NOT believe is that INTXs are incapable of compassion and real love.

Then by coincidence, I stumbled upon this thread, "Is being INTP a choice or is it inherent?" and simply made a NARTH style argument against INTPs utilizing the same reasoning. Personally, I don't see much of a difference between judging people for their personality traits than I do for judging them for their sexuality traits. So I was just having some fun. I was surprised that Hotdoh took me as seriously as he did.
    Okay...phew. I actually did think of homosexuality and the whole "gay marriage" thing once you brought up INTP marriage; was that supposed to be a blatant allusion?

    I can see the humor in this; it would possibly have even been funny if I knew you personally. It's just that I've encountered so many people with such moronic views that I find if simultaneously so simply and difficult to accept that one would hold such an opinion.

    I think of MBTI affiliations like I do constellations. With MBTI, it is PEOPLE who group and classify behaviors and cognitive styles, just as they do with stars. Just as stars aren't born as parts of constellations, people aren't born as INTP or ENFP or whatever. It's just people who classify them that way. People like the OP don't realize that and start fretting over who they are. It's like a star worrying about which constellation it belongs to. Kind of absurd, although confusing the map with the territory isn't anything new.



    P.S. I do say this is lots of threads...

    See, that makes sense.

    If one were to actively and maliciously tear apart everything, then you would be a troll. But you seem benign enough.

    At least... for now...

    I got my eye on you. Lol.

    You just have to find the humor in the absurdity. Humans have a habit of taking themselves too seriously.

    It's a habit acquired because too often, people say absurd things that they really mean.

    I don't know how anyone can see it as anything but funny. We create these social constructs, such as personality theory and sexual orientation, and we forget they have only the power we choose to give them. And then we question whether they are inherent or a choice? What the hell difference does it make? They are very simple ideas that we have created to label very complex aspects of ourselves.

    But I like how Edahn said it better.
