    Default INTP 2 INTP (possibly of use to others)

    I was thinking that there's several little snippets of wisdom which I use to both moderate my own personality (you know, so I don't get decked by the next guy) and to enhance my own thinking. I thought it'd be interesting to both see if other's found them interesting and also to hear their own snippets.

    I know this is a little broad in nature but let's face it, us INTPs are special (the best ). We deserve to have the best guides and wisdom at our disposal

    First up (just to get the ball rolling, not necessarily the best piece of advice).
    Stabbing the sore bit.
    Sometimes when approached with a problem or upon analysing a fault, it is better to dress the answer in diplomacy. Not so much as to diffuse the point but just enough so you don't stab someone just where it hurts with the declaration of "That's where the problem is!!". Some people don't respond well to having those questions that perhaps not even they feel like addressing being investigated by an NT with hobnail boots. Always remove the boots unless given permission to put them back on.

    Some people do appreciate our incisive analysis and can make use of it. Sometimes however all we end up achieving is really antagonising the subject.
    There was a man who had a face that looked a lot like me. I saw him in the mirror and i fought him in the street and when he turned away I shot him in the head then I came to realize I had killed myself.

    I'm not an INTP but I certainly have a piece of advice, since I find INTP's the most annoying, infuriating and exasperating of all the types. (Not that they actually ARE that way... only that they rub ME the wrong way... usually.)

    Anyway... you know how you love to get inside people's heads, so you can figure out how they think - or whatever it is that you're doing in there?

    GET PERMISSION FIRST!

    Second snippet from myself..

    Perfection is entirely subjective. Decide for yourself how far is enough.

    Actually, I haven't, not at any length anyhow, though I did take a gander at a thread someone had linked once.

    This remark makes me feel very uncomfortable, especially when thinking of what you stated earlier on:

    I hope you don't mind if we leave early, though.
