    Why would anyone want to be something other than what they are? Seems to cause more trouble than it's worth...

    I'd say touché, but basically you'd be a gas-filled, meat balloon covered in horse hair. If you're gonna quit yourself, you should set the bar a little higher, I think.

    Having given it some thought, I think it'd be fun to be shapeshifter.

Pure logic plus whatever empiricism we are capable of possessing (given that the world of form is largely an illusion and we can't really know anything).

    FWIW I think you could certainly develop your Te and Ni and mimic the INTJ lifestyle and (to some degree) thought patterns. You can cultivate judging behaviors in yourself. However, you can't "become" an INTJ. If you want a community you could also try developing your Fe.

    INTP's have an interesting group dynamic, I've noticed. They tend to congregate and form clubs and cliques, Fe-style, but with their inferior Fe they continually eschew such behaviors. They make themselves and each other feel good and offer support, but there's no alliance, permanent social structure, or real connection. They just happen to interact with whoever has good ideas at the time, and that can change in an instant depending on who is nitpicking whom. They vacillate between wanting to connect and wanting to run quickly in the opposite direction. Just a thought.
    Personification of forces is an Ni trait. Just saying.

    Of course most INTPs have social needs. It's just tiring to an introverted personality.

    Oh ok, I see. Thanks. So then the next question I guess becomes how you know what function informs your ego, and other people's. It's one of those things you can get a sense of, and try to figure out using descriptions of functions, but it's kind of vague and intangible.
