  1. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    The idea of pretending emotion is confusing to me - when I care about something, I just care (which is why I'm known as the MBTI weirdo among school friends) and if I don't, I don't. I just act according to the truth, so I don't understand when other people pretend, especially NTs. I get...
  2. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I'm an INTP who grew up surrounded by sensors in my family and at school. My only N friends were an ENFJ and ENTJ, so coming to college and being able to befriend ENTPs and INTJs has been great. I met an ENTP. It's nice, but I notice that he suppresses emotions. I've never experienced someone...
  3. Blog
    People, places, and things of the past Inducing dread Negative connotations Traumas unpeeled Prompting me to hide beneath my brick fortress No reason to peer out over the wall Nothing to see there Ruins Unchanged scenery Scorched earth A sunken vessel with all its treasures exhumed...
  4. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Does anyone else feel completely detached from reality? I'm 21, female and an atheist but I just feel completely detached from the world. Like i'm looking in. I've never been in a relationship but have never had any desire to be in one and awkwardly sort of scoot away when ever I know a guy is...
  5. Sex and Relationships
    Some would have us think there are no perversions that its just social conditioning. Since we have gotten ideas into us, or been shamed for manifesting certain behaviours, now some things are no good. Perversions are not real, in the objective world there are merely bodies stimulating one...
  6. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Is there a good way to deal with family members who think you are aloof/cold/isolated/weird/unemotional/uncaring. I don't know how to deal with a family who is the extreme opposite. It makes me feel sad because most of the time, I feel extremely alienated from them. They care for me a lot and...
  7. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I've always been pretty strange in relationships, I'm not sure if its just me or whether its an INFJ thing. I'm either really really clingy to a person and I can't imagine life without them or I'm really distant and detached from them. I've never been able to achieve a middle-ground in...
  8. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Sometimes when I'm making speeches I am in two states. I am the speaker and I am watching myself speak. I am running two completely separate but concurrent modes of thinking. This is both the most exhilarating and disturbing feeling; where everything flows so completely that I have no idea where...
  9. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Something I've noticed lately... I'll just let this write itself because if I think too hard about how to put this, I'll just lose the drive to explain it. I was watching a video about parenting on youtube. The woman in the video mentioned how the things children are interested are really just...
  10. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I've been lurking here for a while. Recently I found something very interesting. I've taken the MBTI test many times, the results are always INTP. Depressed since the age 16. I had to fake the psych evaluations so I wouldn't end up been severely "depressed and suicidal" ,cause I don't want it...
  11. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So, what I was thinking (in a disjointed way) is that these subjects may relate strongly to INTPs: Minimalism Nihilism Freedom Lack of attachment to desire Overwhelming attachment to desire Detached view of human patterns of repeating desires (and their payoffs) A lack of understanding about...
  12. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Do any other ENTPs experience detachment from family members, etc.? For instance, is it hard for you to accept things like "because I'm the parent" or "don't say that, that's your brother" in lieu of logic? I have issues with this. It's very easy for me to separate the fact that someone is...
  13. Sex and Relationships
    Did you hear about that Buddhist couple who're never more than 15 feet apart? Well, we tried it. - By David Plotz and Hanna Rosin - Slate Magazine After reading this article and watching the embedded video, I started thinking about the importance of having personal space in intimate...
