    Default Help Typing Friend

    I'm trying to figure him out, can anyone help a girl out?

    He's a very private person, a recluse. He practically never leaves his room, let alone his house. He always tells me he does so because he hates people. He has about two friends other than myself, we've all known him for years. He's has difficulty making new friends.

    I remember a time When he actually comes outside in order to pay a visit (my house is a block away from his), he told he feels very anxious when outside, always on the look out for danger. It's obvious to me he's very uncomfortable in social situations. Pretty sure he has some kind of anxiety disorder.

    He's very, very messy. His spaces are always in disarray - cans, papers, books, games, you name it, are on the floor. His hair is always unkempt, showing completely no regard for his appearance. He says sitting in barber shop is nerve wrecking experience, but it's mainly because of his lazy nature he avoids getting one.

    He's constantly asking questions, "why?", "what do you mean?", etc. He asks very obvious questions from time to time, but he says he only does so for confirmation. "I can assume what you mean by going with the most probable meaning, but my assumption can also be wrong."

    Very blunt, almost to the point of being unnecessarily cold, so far as claiming honesty is his greatest value. I always say he should be more tactful and considerate of otherís feelings Ö He doesn't believe in pretense and just says what's on his mind, often mocking others for their supposed stupidity.

    He's usually a pretty calm, easy going guy, but when criticized, he can be a bit touchy. He doesn't sulk, he gets anger, and you can hear it in his voice. He says he only does to when the critic is blatantly doing so to get underneath his skin. He goes to possibly extreme lengths to embarrass and show how stupid this person actually is. He typically just dismisses people's opinions, so it's really odd.

    When I was telling him about my problems with my girlfriend, before I finished talking, he told suddenly told me to stop. He asked me, "What can I possibly say to this? She obviously isn't a big fan of logic, so an illogical solution is the your best option ..." Then he went on about about how possibly murdering her dog and sending chain letters to her house could solve all our issues. He's not really someone you go to for emotional support ..

    Always calling me up to share one of his crackpot ideas and to play board games, this is probably one of rare occasions he displays any kind of enthusiasm.

    He has a bit of dark sense of humor, but I'm really just trying to type anything I could do think of. I'm not sure if it's because of the people he's associating himself with (he calls them acquaintances), but he's very anti-authority. Walking out of school during lunch, skipping classes, running away from security guards, questioning and sarcastically insulting authority figures. He's a bit of a delinquent, I suppose. But typically he's the quiet guy in the back of class either sleeping or spacing the fuck out.

    Yeah, INTP. Though a painfully vacant one, he needs some friends pronto.

    Yeah, definitely.

    Thanks for the responses, guys.

    I definitely knew it would be IxTx, I wasn't too sure about the other letters. Any other takes on this?

    Textbook Unhealthy INTP?
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    He actually sounds similar to me when I'm depressed, except a lot more rebellious, blunt, insensitive, and lacking in self-consciousness.

    I'd say INTx.
