    Isn't it just the opposite? It's the S that has the limit while the N part is limitless???
    Intellectually, maybe, but the real world has limitations and rules. The INTPs I've known were a bit clumsy with real world things but very astute with theoretical ones.

    Issa word, mk? It's more encompassing than saying "relationships, trysts, etc etc etc" 😛

    Two I think? ISTP vs INFP.

    Yes very different personalities and oriented very differently to the world and other humans. That was directed at the "I value individuals less" statement.

    This word can be neutral, but it can also have very negative undertones.
    It may be an apt description to say I've been 'entangled' with an ISTP actually.

    INFJ, so that's four. I got what you meant though.

    Undertones aren't really an ISTP focus point but I suppose you knew that already.

    Yikes sorry. Only commonality there is the I and the rest don't play nice.

    I like the technicality of the ISTP's mind as it is, especially paired with craft.
    A job well done's always a joy to see.

    No prob, you don't know me.

    Hopefully I can still manage some kind of friendship.
    At the current once a year rate, I guess it can be managed between any types.
    The conversation used to be nice. Plus, I know what I owe and I'd hate to be disloyal.

    I am dating an INTP. We're very compatible generally.
    One difference we do have is that he dislikes making decisions.
    He makes me do that.

    And then, what about all the grey cases? Dying from pollution which is the long-term result of the actions of lots of people, but ultimately a relatively modest group of people who could have done something about it but thought having a fifth private jet was the better option. Is it dying because of stupid or not for you?
    I think that in general terms I would say my worst fear is being dependant on others. Mainly because I know how dumb people can be. Especially the ones who hold diploma's or certificates. First because they think they are all knowing and second they are not, mainly because they only study what they need to in order to get a diploma.

    I've hadn't kept researching problems i encountered in my life, I would have been in chronic agony. So therefor I am very weary of people. I trust my logical brain far more.
    Egao, stevieg306 and Sweet but Psycho thanked this post.

    Very interesting answer, I could see the ISTPs I know thinking much the same thing.

    I’m not as distrustful, but I do research stuff on my own or I’ll ask a few different people to see the ratio of agreement/disagreement before I make a decision.
