    * feel free to take another snap with this post ;P
    The best way to lure an INTP out of his dwelling is to sever his internet connection. The INTP craves knowledge and usually gets his fix via wireless data (internet, kindle, etc). It is recommended that you set up a snare trap outside his dwelling before you sever his connection to the outside world.

    After capture, be sure to leave random reading material inside his cage. Without a constant stream of knowledge, INTPs are known to go feral. Good luck and happy hunting!

    INTP - The Thinkers

    1. How are you in relationships:

    Never Been In one, So I don't really know.....


    2. How do you do in conversation:

    I hate small talk. I have difficutly starting a conversation and approaching people, but when I can, I can talk about pretty much anything. Expect extended moments of silence while i analyze what you said and decide how to word my response :P


    3. What are your emotional needs?

    No emotions..........is what I would say if I was lying. I need to feel like I'm sincerely wanted, otherwise I'll be afraid that you just want me to go away.


    4. What are your physical needs? (I.e, lots of freedom, etc)

    Me time, peace and quiet, food, dihydrogen monoxide, oxygen (O2), A cold place to sleep.


    5. How are you in social settings?

    Non-existant


    6. How are you when upset?

    Depends. Usually, I'm very cool and rational. Pressure doesn't affect me. But if I DO get emotional....I turn into the mopiest, most emotional person ever. That or I turn into the god of wrathful ire. Depends on
    what is meant by "Upset".


    7. How are you when stressed/sad?

    I typically deal with stress very well, same with sadness. When I don't.....see above answer.


    8. What is your love language?

    ????? Uhhhhh..... I guess you mean how I express it? With extreme loyalty and trust, playfulness, and showing my weaker emotional side


    9a. Do you like being alone?

    That's the grand question, isn't it? I need my quiet time, but being alone all the time sucks.


    9b. What do you do for fun?

    I rather enjoy number theory, and I've developed several theorems/formulas/whatever on exponents and the relationships and patterns between them. I also like reading almost anything, Games like chess and scrabble, and video games. I enjoy conversing with someone that can match me blow-for-blow when it comes to wordplay and taking digs at each other. I like playing guitar, and writing. also, logic puzzles and creating random-ass ideas and theories, like the one for my generator of clean, renewable energy that uses only magnets. If you find any of these ideas interesting, feel free to PM me and we can discuss/explain them in depth. PLEASE, IM SURROUNDED BY INCOMPETENT NIMRODS!


    10. What are your strengths/weaknesses?

    Strengths: I am good at logic, reasoning, academic topics, being adaptable, troubleshooting, helping with any type of problem someone may have (Though don't expect me to just agree and say "there there" if it's emotional, I'll point it out if you did something wrong), Debate.

    Weaknesses: Understanding people's intentions (I never know when someone is flirting), little self-confidence socially (Which is odd, as intellectually i'm very confident), trusting, meeting new people, dealing with closed-minded fools.


    11. How to get on your good side?

    Be loyal, Honest. Intelligent, and NEVER give a one-word answer :P


    12. What do you value the most?

    Honor, Integrity, Loyalty.


    13. What do you feel like is the biggest misconception of your type?

    That we're cold. Sure, we're logical, but on the inside we're giant teddy bears


    14. Bottom line about INTPs?

    We're not human. But we appreciate it when you make us feel like we are :)

    I had to look that one up....very nice point you make.

  6. #25

    1. How are you in relationships:
    Depends what kind. In general. I am considered compassionate, but detached I think!

    2. How do you do in conversations?
    It does depend, and I have gotten much better with age.
    Ingeneral it goes like this...
    I am excellent at public performance, speech, public speaking (its all topic or script thats easy)
    I am good 1 on 1 with someone I find engaging.
    I am terrible in small group setting of a few people at like gatherings and such and terrible in passing with just a random person.

    3. What are your emotional needs?
    Complicated, I want everything yet nothing

    4. What are your physical needs? (I.e, lots of freedom, etc)
    I rely on sexual intimacy to make me feel connected to people.
    I like my space in general. But I do like brief snuggles with a s/o if its not smothering and I don't feel confined
    I am great with babies and elderly on giving affection I find it easy with them their pure.

    5. How are you in social settings?
    Depends
    An odd mix of aloof arrogance mixed with reservation
    Its does depend tho
    If its a new situation I am very reserved and quiet which most mistake for either shy or snob
    If its a familiar situation I will talk fine I am not mousy or anything. When I talk I tend to weird people out with the cynical commentary I pretty much attach to mocking everything. Even if I am acting out genuine emotion I have to add sarcasm to it so it doesn't sound mushy.

    6. How are you when upset?
    Again depends
    I am a bottler, I would say in quantity I am good, but I do & will combust

    7. How are you when stressed/sad?
    Usually withdrawn and I distract myself. I have no problem telling someone how I feel tho like that. I will say I am having a crap day. I just don't go into detail unless its someone close.

    8. What is your love language?
    Sex is more my function
    But I think I am a romantic at heart just a pure one not a cliche sap one. I don't ever want romance for the sake of it I want it because its real.

    9a. Do you like being alone?
    Yes & No
    Its a grass is greener thing. Usually yes. But I have a weak enough I that I will get sick of myself and want to be out by others (not so much socializing but watching)

    9b. What do you do for fun?
    Internet Forums
    I like reading facts of encyclopedic or trivia stuff
    I like to edit portraits/videos
    I like to dance
    I like to go to the beach with my kids
    I like darts/bean bags
    I like strategizing for work (that is fun to me)
    I like activity planning
    I like organizing events
    I like people watching

    10. What are your strengths/weaknesses?
    Strength: Work ethic, principal, objectivity in consulting work issues, decor, production, strategy, performance (which allows me to be extrovert at work when I lead the floor, its improv and acting), I have an ability to see a very big picture (my bosses words), my daughters love my ability to be a parent yet be carefree and embrace life with them, I think I inspire a lot of people, and bring out their good, even with all my cynicism

    Weakness: I am inpatient, I have a hard time with consistency, I like the road to get some where more then where I like when I land, I can be detached, I am a narcissist in terms of vanity and self preservation, I can be a victim, I can have a bad temper

    11. How to get on your good side
    Common courtesy is just a great way to knock. Nothing I hate more then someone who does not extend courtesy in terms of basic respect.

    12. What do you value the most?
    Honor
    Principal
    SINCERITY
    Good Intention
    Good Work Ethic
    Diplomatic people
    Free speech
    I admire free thinkers (NTP's ), top tier doers (NTJ's), and humanitarians (NF's)



    13. What do you feel like is the biggest misconception of your type?
    Well I know I am not a genius or a scientist for starters. Also I am not shy

    14. Bottom line about INTPs?
    Beats me I am still trying to decide if I am one despite my continual tests coming up that way.

    I love to be center stage when I dance!

    SO true, funny you got it down in one word & I just wrote a mini book. Should of read thru first and just agreed rather then bothering. But I don't like to read thru first and influence my answers with already written.

    Good answer!

    INTP - The Thinkers

    I'd like to say I care a lot for my partner, but that I can be a little stand off ish. I've been called "a drama king" and "frustrating". I feel a lot in relationships, so I tend to shut down...because of too many feelings. But, I do care a lot for my partners...but sometimes I neglect showing that, and sometimes I can be unfair towards them. Like, I'll be feeling badly and take it out on them...and then feel bad about that. I wish marriage wasn't an everyday type thing...but, I'll get over that, I guess. Or not get married...both are cool.

    I can hold my own, but I guess I can be kind of quiet. If it's not something I want to talk about, I just won't talk. Sometimes I'll have an off day and no one will get to talk to me...other times I'll carry on like 12 conversations at once. But usually, I don't talk unless I have something to say.

    What aren't my emotional needs? I'm an emotional wreck 90% of the time.

    I like being fed. I like sex. I like being mentally altered...if you get my drift.

    Quiet. Usually comfortable. Almost always laid back. But, mostly quiet. I don't talk unless I have something to say...

    Emotional.

    Emotional.

    I make it a practice to give out, to the best of my abilities, all five. In return, I love talking to her...I love spending time with her, not even talking. And I like holding her...

    Yes, I love being alone. Life is much easier when you're with yourself.

    Answer random forum posts. Write. Think. Music. Drugs. Plan for the future. Talk to friends.

    I don't know what my biggest strength is. My biggest weakness is acting impulsively.

    Be nice to me, and be nice to everyone. I've never not liked a nice person.

    My friends and family.

    That we're unemotional robots. I know with me...and I can see it in others online...we're probably more emotional than most people. Inferior Fe makes it so that we're always acting from feeling, and sucking at it too.

    Uhh, just a way of categorizing people with similar personality traits. The categorization doesn't define the individual.

    1. How are you in relationships:
    I don't know because I have not entered a serious longterm relationship in a long while. I have been separated for almost two years, after leaving my marriage of 6+ years which I married at 22 years old.

    The only long term relationships I have to compare to were entered when I was young, with each of my daughters dads. And were not healthy.

    I think in short tho I am in general very devoted and adoring when I love someone. But I am independent and require that respect to be at my best other wise I get depressed.

    2. How do you do in conversations?
    It does depend...
    In small talk.. well I tell people flat out its not my cup of tea.
    In work talk... well very well I thrive at work and I can embody what I need to for work purposes
    Intimacy... I can say to my kids or a romantic interest my "feelings" openly in a matter of a fact way.


    3. What are your emotional needs?
    It does depend on with who...
    I would say in general mutual respect & courtesy

    4. What are your physical needs? (I.e, lots of freedom, etc)
    I like physical intimacy I just don't lim sit smothered.
    I am very physically active in my daily life i.e. dancing, & on the floor at work


    5. How are you in social settings?
    It does depend quite a bit...
    I am generally reserved, but I do love to dance and don't mind performing, I dominate in assertive things like speeches, and such in work
    At a social party or something I am generally reserved which most people assume I am shy or bitchy, the later might be somewhat correct but really I just don't like stupid formalities unless its for work.

    6. How are you when upset?
    Depends
    Things like death I take a solving approach I planned my dads funeral and was present while everyone else cried.
    I am terrible when I feel I have tried reason over & over and am not being "heard", I can be temperamental


    7. How are you when stressed/sad?
    Well I kind of addressed it above.
    I can almost embody an ENFP or INFP when I am very very distraught but it really really takes a lot for me to break. I almost have to have everything hit the fan or be patronized


    8. What is your love language?
    Mutual Respect & Mutual Cherishing

    9a. Do you like being alone?
    Yes, but I also enjoy people

    9b. What do you do for fun?
    Dance
    Event Plan
    Coordinate
    Edit

    10. What are your strengths/weaknesses?
    My strengths I am pretty objective in scenarios outside myself, I can see cause & effect, I can see underlined behavior patterns, I am loyal in general, I am honest (double inch sword), I am in general very loyal. I am usually very just even to the point of sacrificing self interest.
    I can be stubborn, I can be cross, I am can be temperamental


    11. How to get on your good side?
    Be real, and not have ulterior motives

    12. What do you value the most?
    Principle

    13. What do you feel like is the biggest misconception of your type?
    I don't relate to this type I test as over and over in terms of in the group setting by majority. So pretty much what everyone else identifies with I don't in terms of social ineptness, I am not shy or overly awkward I am able to adapt most of my isolation is chosen not because I can't interact, not sexually stimulated-this is not something I relate to, no drive or ambition-I don't relate, wallowing self doubt-don't relate, I just don't identify with these things so either I am a border line INTP or keep testing wrong.

    14. Bottom line about INTPs?
    ?
