    Question Please share my umbrella (and a question)



    First.. HELLO!

    There's a sh*tload of MBTI related forums out there, but i settled on joining this one. It seemed generally more inclusive than the rest.
    I hope my time here will be productive and insightful

    New to MBTI theory here so... here's what's on my mind
    So I'm an INTP. Dominated by Introverted Thinking, backed by Extraverted iNtuition

    So in seeking a structured and logical internal framework of ideas and concepts internally (Interverted Thinking), I see possibilities and patterns to create theories from the external world (Extraverted iNtuition) and use these iNtuitive ideas to create my internal framework

    Does anyone else here see the massive potential for this combination to go sour? Because INTP's gather information externally primarily through iNtuition and not Sensing or Feeling, INTP's much more likely to see patterns that conform to original bias.

    See, I have various delusions and paranoia, and although I try (fight) my best to reason with logic inside my head that... it's just a delusion!. Every time I look around me I see patterns of behaviour and get 'iNtuitive ideas' about other people which back up my delusions

    QUESTION - Does this basically mean my Extraverted iNtuition is underdeveloped?

    IF YES? - How do I fix this? I'm plagued by my own erroneous iNtuition. At least I hope it's wrong

    I know something's wrong with me but I don't know what direction I need to go in to solve it. So that's why I'm hoping this theory of personality will give me that direction

    Any insight appreciated...

    Hello and welcome.

    As to your question, I might advise you to start a thread in the NT Personal Threads - http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...sonal-threads/

    You might get more constructive feedback in there.

    Have fun in the forums.

    Welcome!

    Your name reminds me of the film Cyrano de Bergerac. (Okay also this one... heh heh heh)
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
