    Default INTPs & Anger

    I don't believe your statement to be true either.

    I would expand, but I have to go to a baby shower.

    Anyway, maybe Ivy can get Noah or Martoon to validate or reject your theory (since I know they're INTPs).
    So Noah and I aren't addressed directly anymore? It all goes through Ivy now?

    Anyway, it's nice to be an INTP poster child, I guess. Regarding the post being referenced, I don't believe that I, personally, start moving toward any J characteristics (negative or otherwise) when stressed. In fact, when I get really stressed, I just shut down, become paralyzed, and stop taking any action at all. I just get very passive and resigned. If anything, I'd say it's like an extreme, unhealthy P characteristic.

    But other INTPs may react differently. While I have no doubt that I'm INTP, my reaction doesn't necessarily represent the breed. I'm very non-aggressive (is that a passive way of saying "passive"?), and I really hate conflict, or having anyone upset (even if it's not directed at me). I have a high enneagram Type 9 score (calmness), and very low Type 8 (aggressiveness). A lot of INTPs will occasionally "rage", where they really go into a fit of anger. I've never done anything like that. I don't really do anger. I don't know how. I probably should.
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.

    Neither do I.

    Supression is fun!

    IMO, those INTPs are raging periodically because they're suppressing constantly. You guys probably just have a longer interval than most. It's coming...

    It comes out badly and counterproductive.

    If we'd just get mad when it counts things would be a lot more healthy.

    Somehow, when I'm stressed, I still continue working. Everything else may suffer, but for some reason, I'm still getting all the work I need done on time.

    If I'm not getting my work done on time, I'm probably dying or something.

    I let it out.

    It's something I learned during my skatboarding days: A quick burst of anger-vomit. . . and then I'm A-OK. Although, it comes off as tourette-like, I've been told.

    Does it always begin with the phrase, "Are you jooooooking me!?"

    I don't really do the anger thing either, although INTJs do seem more likely to lash out than INTPs.

    It's a handy thing to learn, venting your own reactors. Because an INTP meltdown is uglay.

    Yeah, it's not cool when you frighten people you don't intend to frighten.

    Yeah, I've never had one of them.

    But with me, it's directed toward myself, because it arises when I know I should be able to do something that I can't, for some reason. For instance - back to the skateboarding analogy - I'd have something worked out intellectually, but I'd fail initially when it came to the physical aspect. And after a series of failed attempts, I'd yell out something like, "Haight! You're an idiot! You have push down and then out. Dammit!

    However, more times than not, I'd end up accomplishing that which I ranted about generally a minute or five later. So it helped with focusing, in a way.

    So as usual, it has to do with me not living up to me. I'm selfish even when angry, in other words.
