Before I became an atheist and rationalist I really liked UFOs and bigfoot and all the other stuff that Art Bell talked about.

    Are those the sort of things that Ne feeds on?
    Being interested in an interesting subject is not unique to any type. If you write a book on physics, you're much more likely NT (than SP for example).

    Got some more thoughts rattling around in my head. Not really about my own type but about other INTPs, I don't think it warrants a new thread so I'll recycle this one.

    I'm trying to figure out what the deal is with the INTPs of INTPc. As I said before my dissimilarity to them was the impetus for doubting my INTPness in the first place. I know now that comparing myself to other people is not the proper way to determine type. As much as my dissimilarity to other INTPs nags at me I'm trying to ignore it.

    Anyway, I searched INTPc for threads on Enneagram and Big 5/SLOAN test results to try to determine some differences which MBTI might not account for. I found that the vast majority of them are Big 5 RCUEIs with some RLUEIs and this poll of Enneagram types gave 124 5w4s to 43 5w6s. I am an RLUEI and 5w6 so at least among the forum dwelling INTPs I am something of a minority.

    So what I want to know is do the INTPc INTPs represent the average INTP? Are they what normal INTPs are like or are they a group of very unhealthy personalities gathered together in an egotistic circle jerk to make themselves feel better?

    A lot of the INTPc folk seem to have what I would call home school syndrome. Their opinions are unwise and 100% theory based.

    Having been home schooled myself, I endorse this message.
