Hey guys. I'm Mavelyn. I'm an INTP and a 8w9. I'm 17 and currently live with my best friend (an ESFJ). I'm dating a ENTP.
So I've never been the typical geeky INTP. Yes, I have a high GPA and could recite the Hunger Games word for word, but I don't spend time calculating the percentage of how much bigger the TARDIS is on the inside or whatever. I don't do work in my spare time (I usually play video games) but can be found often debating my INTJ neighbor or lost in some complicated thought.
I have depression and had struggled with self harm in my early teen years, but all I really need now is a mood stabilizer or something, that I take at night. I've always been very dark, "think about death so much it feels just like a memory" I think about how it feels for everything to be... gone.
I joined this site because I want to get a better understanding about my type. People perceive my Ixxx aspect as moody or antisocial, and see my xxTx as cold. People who know MBTI consider INTP's the nerdy, geeky guys doing calculus in their free time. I want to find the genuine meaning behind INTP (I think it's kind of rare) and understand myself better. I've really only known myself for 17 years!
