So I'm an INTP. I'm 26 years old and tested the same when I was about 14. It's kind of funny to me that i have spent many years of my life searching for something to grasp on to to explain all of my oddities when it turns out those "oddieties"are truly inherent to who I am on a much deeper level. I grew up in a family that was full of feelers. In college, I wanted nothing more than to be left to my own devices, but always seemed to be surrounded by people trying to pull me out of my shell. I've always deviated towards appeasing my family and the friends that sort of attached themselves to me by just doing or acting how they wanted.
but i never really fully liked any of it. i found myself depressed for years, not really happy about putting myself out there when I wasn't really interested in being there. i was always terribly anxious in social situations, but i continually put myself into them, trying to just make something tick. i've been the oh so typical chameleon for years!
what i've found in the last month or so since I rediscovered that I am an INTP is that life seemed to be much more simplier when explained in terms of mbti. it just makes sense. when i log on and read other people's insights into their particular life experiences, it calms me... soothes me... just knowing i'm not the only one that thinks in such odd patterns. I keep using the word odd, because that's what people have badgered me with for years and tried to change in me..but who really knew that it's pretty normal after all, just normal for an INTP?
so the long and the short of it is that i finally in my life think i'm okay and maybe i do actually rock. i'm especially interested in meeting others like myself, or at least others similar to myself. I'm especially interested in understanding entj's a bit, since i've found out that ALL of the guys in my social circle(in recent years i've tended to hang out with guys), including the man that rocks my world, is an entj.
so, here goes nothing with my first post...
