    Default INTP Myth Number 17

    Okay so 17 was actually just a random number although I wouldn't be surprised if there are 16 other myths. (Yeah I would be)

    Anyway, sometimes I think people think that INTPs are pretty emotionless or cold.

    I just got an email from an INTP that made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
    INTPs can be really warm.

    That is all.

    /end post.


    Have a nice day.

    Well, according to some, that emotionlessness has to exist for someone to really be an INTP.
    But yeah, I've been called sweet, or something to that effect, many times. Glad there are others spreading the warm fuzziness.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    That seems to me like saying an ENTP never recalls his or her past.. just from what I've read regarding the functional theories, it seems like INTPs would generally -need- that soft, squishy side to help keep them grounded and balanced, just like ENTPs look to their past mistakes to realize that some things really -aren't- possible...

    I don't think most people think INTP's lack warmth.. But I do think most people (on this forum) are aware that they typically don't whore it out.

    Actually I've been aware that INTPs (usually) are warm. Er, at least the ones I've known. They are quite often nicer than ISFPs/INFPs soooo....yeah.

    Just because we don't like to spread our emotions to the world, doesn't mean we lack of them. Emotions are part of an human being, we like it or not.
    I'm not the warmest person with my (few) closest friends, but I try to make them feel nice and to show them I really care about them.

    My INTP friend frequently expresses a very kind and thoughtful side in text and action, while retaining his aloofness in manner. It's an intriguing combination, but much appreciated. I have no doubts when it comes to his sincerity.

    Particularly while being burned at the stake.

    OK, seriously - I'm not heartless but keeping up a facade tends to keep people from coming to me in search of certain types of emotional validation.

    For instance, if someone breaks down and cries in my presence, he or she will likely be treated to my "deer in the headlights" stare as I nervously shift from one foot to the other.

    And hugging? Ewwww.

    I've found that hugs, and sometimes just the threat of hugs, can be a powerful weapon when wielded properly.
