I have a lot of INTP friends that I often draw from discussing & mentioning intellectual interests. I have noticed a really weird pattern with INTP males that I know; a large number of them have regularly smoked pot and also dealt drugs for some time when they were younger. I get the impression that this was to fit into a male social group better, and I have a speculation that the Ne and NT behavior get weakened and suppressed on pot in which case they can get along better in a mainstream male environment which seems very Se (7th function), Si (3rd), Fe (4th) to me. I usually get along with INTPs really well but I've also been noticing a number of male INTPs that seem to suppress their Ne to fit in better to a "dude society", haha (similar to INFPs). Has anyone else noticed this, and in which case, what is the best way to open them up? I get mixed signals as to how to interact because I get mixed signals, which I think is from the suppressed Ne-interest so I feel both coaxed to take the conversation in that direction and also that I'm walking on eggshells.
Sorry if the above experiences I'm having with INTPs are more individual and not relatable or relevant to other INTPs.
