    I'm not so sure about what that means...

    Yes. I also notice the inconsistencies of ideas people throw at me, and hidden issues that never seem to be talked, such as the rationality of emotions: people think of them as irrational, but this sounds weird to me, as they occur in somewhat predictable ways

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    I take the route of John A. Wheeler's [the guy who coined the term "black hole"!] strategy regarding new information: radical conservatism...Here, we try to stretch our theories to the limit, hence the apparent stubbornness.

    My INTJ father thinks I am an incompetent douche because I can't outdo him ( as in basically more intelligent than him). What should I do?

    Ignore his attitude, and just keep doing your best at the things that are important to you. Pay attention to any substantive criticism he may have in case you can learn something useful, but ignore the value judgements. INTJs value independence and confidence. If he sees you are managing your life in your own way, and are not overly dependent upon his approbation, he should come round eventually and at least be able to maintain a more mature, adult relationship.

    I've met a couple of INTPs that wish they were INTJs.
    Interestingly, I've never seen a INTJ wishing he was another mbti type.
    Isn't there a mbti personality type that you envy?

    Dear INTJs,

    What would you like from your friends if you're feeling bummed out?
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Not asking - are you ok? over and over.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    All things equal, what would you say that INTP's do better than you?

    This isn't meant to spark one of those heated NT debates, but it's a serious question. There are certainly things that I think INTJ's do better than myself.
    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.

    I envy attributes of many other types, but not enough to wish to be that type overall. I suppose I envy the most how calm, grounded, and peaceful INFPs can be, at least the ones I have known. They are a bit like the guru on the mountaintop.

    To offer practical help at solving the problem; to spend low-key time together in activities that require little talking; and often, just to leave me alone.

    They are much better at having fun, being spontaneous, and rolling with the punches. My specific INTP is much better at smalltalk, chatting up the neighbors for useful info, and generally remaining on good terms. I'm not sure whether this is type-related, though, or just him.
