    Do INTP's lean towards drug use?

    As a former chronic drug user ,myself( and an Intp), I beleive that drugs are extremely prevelent amoungst Intps. For one, we lean towards deppression in the first place because of our apparent lean towards a high intelligence, and because of that, we tend to not be able to talk to people on our level. Secondly we're Perceivers, so we tend to like to take risks, or at least don't mind it. Personally, I love opiates, they numb me from all feeling except the euphoria that comes rushing through me. Stimulants too, since they help the introverted thinking function. They help me think more clearly and make it easier to verbalize my thoughts more confidently. Alcohol too, brings out the extroverted side, making it easier to talk to people. I've done more, but that isn't really important. So, do Intp's lean towards drug use?

    The reason we lean towards depression is because we have a hard time communicating with others and we are misunderstood a lot, so we feel alienated... Not because we lean towards high intelligence. If we had social skills even as some sort of super-geniuses we would have a much lower risk of depression.

    Personally, I am very attracted to drugs, but I only smoked pot several times in my life (even though I had 1000 chances to become a real junkie). Maybe its more of my Fi side that tells me not to cross my own principles (i have a higher Fi than the average INTP). I always feel so bad after I smoked pot even though it was loads of fun and I can't find any logical reason that would approve Pot being illegal.

    Edit: You need to get out of your comfort zone... Release your Ne and Fe and you will have no problems in social situation. The real problem is that most of us are so stuck up in our Ti that we have no idea what should we do in a social environment if we can't just talk about our own theories all the f***ing time and debate with others. Learn to adjust and just be have fun.

    Edit number 2: People who know me think I'm extremely bright and ingenious and I know how is it to 'not be understood' or to be teased for your weird obsessions on science and philosophy. But hey, my Fe is really highly developed now so I have no problems spending 3 or 4 hours with an ESFP girl, ESTJ guy and the ESFJ guy talking about their stuff...

    INTPs aren't really the only ones. All the ENTPs I know (including myself) were/are drug users. We weren't much into opiates and stimulants though. We were pretty much purely into psychedelics. But the INTPs I know are drug users, and one in particular likes opiates quite a bit.

    I read somewhere those with higher intelligence are more prone to drug use in general, so it's definitely a possibility

    My INTP buddy got me into smoking week back in 8th grade. He loves coke nowadays. Oddly, he's the most composed drug user I've ever met. He is doing phenomenal in school, and nobody but his closest friends would know that he does any drugs other than weed. I would guess that all INT* types are fascinated by drugs. My INTJ best friend does a lot of drugs too and does really well in school. They seem to enjoy the concept of 'freeing their minds'. And when INT* types do drugs, it really seems as if peer pressure has no influence on them, as if drugs was something they consciously knew they wanted to do even as children.

    I would agree with this.

    I can't speak for other INTPs, but personally I have zero interest in doing any recreational drugs. It's not for any "high and mighty" reason, I just... don't get the appeal. Oh well.

    Out of all the drugs, I have the hardest time turning down stimulants.

    Before about seven years ago there wasn't one I wouldn't try.. and keep trying if I liked how it made me feel. I blame -boredom-. Mhm. And I don't recommend this as an escape from boredom. Just sayin' yeah, I went there. Mistake.
