  1. [INTP] Social bonding through intellectual discussion

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Do you like structured intellectual environments? IS it easier for you to form social connections through structured discussion ? When I was still in school/ uni it was easiest for me to bond with other people in classes, hearing people discuss interesting intellectual topics. As an adult I...
  2. Do you notice energetic bonds or chords extending from people when socializing?

    General Psychology
    I had a conversation with a friend, and he mentions about seeing energetic bonds or cords from people. I notice the same too, though didn't know it was a thing. These tendrils or bonds can either shift away, in the case that the social bond breaks to some extent, or move closer, as two people...
  3. [INTJ] Become social when sleep deprived

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I find I become unusually social when sleep deprived. My mind seems to work differently and my whole personality changes. Has anyone else experienced this?
  4. New MBTI Dichotomy: Military vs Corporate Personality (M/C)

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I posted a similar thread on here a week or so ago, though it was deleted without explanation or reason. So, I'm posting again, in case it was an accidental removal. If this gets deleted, please send me a personal message as to why it got removed. Thanks. Military Personality: Prefer...
  5. [INTP] "How to trick people into thinking you're social." A guide for INTPs, by INTPs.

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    "How to trick people into thinking you're social." A guide for INTPs, by INTPs. I am what you could call a socially adept INTP. I can carry on a non-awkward conversation with basically anyone, and I am fairly confident in my ability to read social situations(when I care to). I wanted a place...
  6. On Modesty

    In conversation a friend once said "ENTP's can't be modest." I of course immediately corrected him and firmly stated that I could do absolutely anything I set my mind to. Seriously though, this will be tough for may of us. Recognize that it's not a stretch to use our extroversion to understand...
  7. [INTJ] I'm about to do something most INTJ's hate (parties)

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    So in a couple hours I'm going to a party organised by my ESFP-friend. It's his wedding party but it's actually not as conventional as they already married earlier this summer (so, a wedding after-party). No silly table placings, special dancing rituals and gazillion of speeches - or so I hope...
  8. T/F preferences and gender expectations

    Myers Briggs Forum
    The conflict between type preference and gender norms seems to me an important element not taken seriously enough in MBTI type profiles. There's plenty written on what percentage of T versus F types are male versus female, but my sense is that most type descriptions are written to best fit...
  9. TV & Movies - Why our world is falling apart and why it has got worse!

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Howard Beale's speech from Network (1979) pops into my head: "Because you people and 62 million other Americans are listening to me right now. Less than 3% of you people read books, less than 15% of you read newspapers, because the only truth you know is what you get over this tube, right...
  10. [INTP] Is the way we're socialized the reason for the INTP "gender gap"?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I know our type is fairly uncommon among the general population, but it is more common for males than it is for females. Does this have to do with gender roles and socialization? It seems to me that the INTP is a very "specialized" type that is uncommon for a reason. Environment, influence of...
  11. How much socialization is enough for you?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Yes, another I/E thread! I'm still very confused on the topic, though I'm starting to understand it better. I'm almost positive at this point that I am in fact an extrovert, even though I don't happen to socialize very well. Anyway, I just wanted to know how much each person thinks is enough or...
