    Default Greetings

    I have decided to start crawling out of my shell. I have been a hermit for a few years. You could call it a existential crises, which is leading to a change of habit. In my obsessive quest, I lived my entire life thinking I was a intellectual, even testing as INTJ then INTP. However, with my cling for metaphors, and my lack of obsession with a growing database, as well as my inability to fit in on NT forums, It was extremely difficult to get a decent response to my posts. However, due to luck someone recommended that I wasn't a rational, impossible!

    I then realized how (in my opinion) ridiculous the feelers profiles are. After the help of a "objective" scholar, I managed to realize how INFPs can be mistyped as INTJs depending on life experience. Basically, this was a result of tearing the system apart to find out what type I really can relate with the most. This was of course partly made possible due to a few bitter events in concession. The wisdom I managed to acquire through this is, only through enough experience, and the ability to reflect on that experience, as well as proper comprehension of one's experience, can one truly find their self identity. Some people can go a lifetime deceiving themselves.

    Ranting aside, hello.

    I must express that I have found INTPc to be rather barren. I suppose there have been better days there. Either it is the people, or my inability to interact with INTPs. I do however relate better with the INTJ forum, even though I don't completely act like them. I guess INTJs might have more of an appreciation of metaphors. I could be wrong on all of this however.

    I know two bad-ass, ISFJ scientists.
    I know two knowledge loving INFPs.

    One of whom, is on this very forum. You can certainly be an intellectual INFP. Dominant feeling has nothing to do with actual intelligence and capability.

    Welcome.

    After my last argument, I realized that I suffer a severe form of hypersensitivity, though some may view that as idiocy. Still... I do realize that pain is an effective teacher. I suppose this is another reason to admire the INTs I pretended to be.

    Ugh, INTPc. That place gives INTPs a bad name. I assure you it has nothing to do with metaphors. I think it's just the culture that developed there at INTPc. Some people like it, but for me it was boring at best. This place is much more welcoming, friendly, and understanding. I think that you will like it here.
