Well, I thought that this would be pretentious and grandiose enough for a first post, so that's what I'm doing. This post is really just outlining what some of my personal confessions/fears are, and this is posted here because I'm interested to see how many other people of the INTP type (all of the NT - Analysts really) share these. So... here goes.
Being afraid of your own mind - When I was watching Criminal Minds and I heard Spencer Reid (a classic INTP by the way) call out to a killer, "I know what it's like to be afraid of your own mind," that really hit home. Especially with all of the psychopaths and sociopaths on that show, I'm actually legitimately afraid of mentally snapping. With a natural low emotional capacity, it's scary to think of what could drive you into becoming a killer. Death of a loved one (not that we have many of those INTPs! Am I right? Am I right? Oh we're so alone), witnessing something terrible, just getting that bored. It's frightening to think, it really is.
Embracing the crazy - All of us INTPs have a little maniac inside our heads, don't try and hide it. INTPs are known for being eccentric, and in a way that means we've sort of embraced it... Well a little anyway. This kind of goes hand in hand with the other one. Like what would happen if you just totally went batsh*t crazy.
Not meeting your own expectations - Now look, I really don't care about other people standards. They think I'm a piece of crap? What a mook, who needs 'em? No, it's me disappointing myself that saddens me.
The superiority complex - For some reason it's like I'm better then everyone else. Ok, so not all people, just the sheep. You know, that group that makes up like 82% of the population? No, not at sports or relationships, or social skills, but where it counts, like having an IQ above 4. All of these tiny people, with such tiny problems. "Oh those shoes are so bic." "Oh man, did you hear about Jessica and Johnny behind the Liqueur Store?" "Football is actually a legitimate topic to get in an argument about." It's like I live in a world of lab rats, but I don't have the time or patience to do a proper experiment on these tiny brained subjects.
The inferiority complex - Yes, I can hold both of these at once. But all of these tiny brained humans are so... Happy. All of these things that infuriate me make them actually enjoy life. It's like they get to succeed and I don't simple because they're sheep. And, well, they are so good at it, being happy sheep that it. *sigh* What's a boy to do.
These are all of the one's I can think of at *checks clock* 12 am. What are yours?
