    "P" types "wait and see" because things will pan out and structure will create itself from the inside out... not usually in such a well-structured way as a "J" approach, but something!


    I just wanted to play with you, Gray.


    Oh, and you're very welcome Fuent~ So far, you do seem INTJish... but you may just be an INTP yet.

    exactly what im getting at... J seems to strive to create structure where it would not have existed before, and many times a degree of that structure is reached as a result.

    P is more open-ended, "meh, it will happen like it happens!"

    I'm trying to carefully compare and contrast each of the cognitive processes for INTP and INTJ. I'm curious to hear more from Randonimity cause i had heard the "maybe ISTP" argument before on another thread. One of my best friends is an ISTP and we get along extremely well. He's much more of a partier than me though. He usually wants to go out and do things much more than i want to. I like exciting experiences but i find that most of the time going out with other people around my age (19) is more trouble than it's worth because of their lack of foresight into problems that WILL arise in their poor planning. I'm not saying i like to plan things, but it's very annoying to waste time on stupid oversights.

    maybe it's all in your head, or maybe the stepping stones do exist and you're just a few steps behind...

    anyways, it's not nice to add stuff to the quote boxes that i didnt say

    Ni does not create structure: it FINDS it

    yes, of course that ideology would be a necessary precursor to such an approach

    Another one of my best friends is an INTP. He didn't really care much about school but he managed to get mostly Bs. I never noticed how smart he was until i started having in depth conversations with him. We have a lot in common, our sense of humor is identical, we are both very skeptical of everything, and he mostly agrees with my opinions. This is part of what makes me think i'm INTP. He is though, a lot more disorganized than me(i'm talkin no clean floor to step on in his room) and he barely cares about his physical appearance. I'm not gonna stand in front of the mirror for an hour or anything but i at least want to look presentable because i know it's important for the outside world. I'm a lot more concerned about my health than he is. We both tend to avoid conflict but have no problem putting someone in their place if need be. I think i'm a lot more considerate of other people's feelings than him too.

    fluent, i dont really have much of a basis for this, but a lot of what you're saying strikes me as "J"
