Just to give a little background. This INTP is an 8w9 so/sx
He seems bitter and jaded because he is constantly giving, and making plans with his sons, and none of them want to hangout with him. In my eyes they're ungrateful, and I can understand why he would have this look on his face all the time.
A look that he is just not content.
He looks like he's on the defense all the time.. (hard face to describe)
Sort of acts like he's pouting or something...
Either way the guy seems unhappy.
An example of this INTP.
I was out in the sun with my friend (ISFP) and his father(INTP)
I forgot my sunscreen. I was roasting.
The INTP gave me his hat while we went on a boat ride (ISFP was driving)
Got to the destination. Sat and talked for 2 hours pretty much about survival skills. INTP didn't say much...maybe asked me one question as usual. And talked a little about soccer with ISFP.
On the way back the sun was set and I wasn't being burnt by it anymore.
I asked him if he wanted his hat back
He replied "Well, I don't need it now..." (This is kind of a key sentence here, because I sincerely cannot tell if he is joking, when I see it written, it clearly looks like a joke, but the intonation in the INTP's voice sounded more like resentment)
I laughed, but he didn't...then it made me second guess if he was just being a jerk.
I guess you'd have to hear what I heard...because his tone of voice was just serious.
Do INTP's laugh at thier own jokes?
I guess my question is, am I looking too much into it?
Even if I am, all three of his son's agree with me that he is bitter and pouting about something.
Is there something one of them can do to "snap" him out of it?
Does this seem like a normal INTP interaction?
I'm just curious, because he used to be a bit more stoic (I guess would be the word?) than described here.
His mannerisms didn't seem to equate to....well to be frank... teenage drama
Does this sound like I'm nit picking or something? Or when INTP's are stressed do they act like this?
