    Some of the survival tips suggested in this thread sound like a repetition of the BS others suggest while trying to change an INTP into something else. Most of them aren't relevant. Shake them off!

    Tips I use:

    - Avoid guardians.
    - Avoid jealousy.
    - Avoid people that don't think you're human.

    Avoid them, get away from them, or get rid of them.

    More generalizable:

    - Find a good judger friend to help keep you off the streets.
    - Constantly remind yourself to think for yourself.
    - Don't just go with what someone else says just to be nice or to keep the peace; it doesn't work.
    - Constantly remind yourself to be yourself and no one else. Unless it makes sense.
    - Stop going out of your way to be nice; it's usually not usually worth it.
    - Never let go of momentum.
    - Don't start over planning things and lose your spontaneity.
    - Screw "growing up," (you're already grown, just by different standards) that's just a prison for those who are over the hill, or who have failed.
    - Love is good, unless it's with the wrong person. Find the right one.
    - Don't settle, but don't sit idly either. Find a way.

    You don't really have to be grateful for things to be happy. It's usually an exercise in stupidity. Or, more accurately, you already know what you're grateful for, don't try to kill yourself spouting it off to others if you don't want to, because it's really about them, not you. It doesn't help you past them possibly backing off for a little while, because they got you to do what they thought was oh so appropriate, even though it means nothing to you and does nothing for you.

    If you don't want to be hugged, then don't let anyone do it. It's not going to make you feel better, it's about them trying to make themselves feel better. They aren't really trying to do something nice for you, if they were, then when you told them to back off, they would.

    Whenever you feel like bailing on something new, remind yourself how much you will learn from direct experience and how pure the data will be.

    2 beers/glasses of wine/shots before any and all social functions so your smile works properly. The exception being funerals; your spaced expression and dead eyes are perfectly appropriate.

    Si is not your friend. It feels great, and it's good every once in a while, but it's holding you back if you stay in the kiddie pool too long.

    Don't get discouraged when despite coming up with what seems like the most effective/efficient solution to a shared problem within a group, no one jumps on board despite not being able to explain the logistical flaws of said solution; Chances are you are technically right, but you're also being an asshole without even realizing it.

    And if you really want your timbers to be shivered, to date.

    You don't need to "develop" Fe so much as develop ways to reconcile the dissonance so it doesn't lead to stress. Ne is your savior here. Don't change, integrate.

    Maybe it's just me, but I would tell my younger self that it's okay to feel rejected once in a while.

    In terms of survival, your first priority should always find shelter. From there, you must look for a clean source of water and decent source of calories.
    Avoid exploring at night, make your provisory shelter safe from wild predators (ie, make it high in a tree or organize some sort of barricade arround your sleep place). Fire is also fundamental to keep yourself heated and scare off smaller animals and bugs.

    Last but not least, in a survival situation your endgoal should to be able to reach the nearest place where there are other humans who can take care of you, be it in a small African village or in a North Korean military camp. Stick to the coastline, and, if there isn't one, keep marching on a single direction until you find other people from who you'll receive medical assistance.

    I recommend the SAS's Survival Guide in case you're really into the subject.
