    1. Hopeless indecisiveness, or well maybe I should say being overwhelmed with so many interesting possibilities that it is agonizing to be limited to just one, or maybe I should be direct and say I have a hard time reaching a final conclusion.......

    2. The inability to translate self-diagnosed ability and interests into a usable/salable skills into a career

    3. Tying into above, "thought crushes" that can be obsessive but turn on a dime. I will dig and dig and research away on something, then one day it bores me and I do the same to another subject. Kind of makes finishing a degree, etc. a challenge. (I did finish a BA...on the decade plus plan)

    +1. The difficulty tuning out the "instant replay" and mental "color commentary" for every mistake ever made.

    INTPs/INTJs must work for a competent manager with equal or superior intelligence to them. Otherwise, there's no respect. I think that's why there are so many "NTs" in management positions. Talk about arrogance, huh? I hate that about myself.

    Huh. It took me seven years, including one year of academic drop.

    I thought I was just being lazy.

    Default Why do INTPs allow themselves to pigeonholed with such a horrible trait?

    I've come out INTP on some MBTI-like tests, but I definitely do not lack follow-through.

    In fact, this trait is the number one reason I haven't self-identified as an INTP. I like being pracitical, and making things happen in the real world. But, I love theory more so than almost every one I've met.

    It has been often said, "There is nothing more practical than a good theory."

    that bugs me about the ENTP stereotype too. if we didn't follow through on things, we'd be dead.

    it's that we don't follow through on the thousands of ideas that we get, not that we don't follow through on ANY. once we decide to do something, nothing stands in our way.

    the descriptions for both types get misinterpreted, and i agree, it is frustrating.

    but, eh, fuck 'em. let them think what they want. that way they won't be expecting it when it happens, so less resistance will get in our way.

    dun dun DUNNNN.

    It is only the things I'm unsure about or don't care much about that I don't follow-through on.

    If it's something I'm passionate about or something that I know has to be done and actually completed (i.e., no more room for flex), then I pour myself into it and get it done.
