    How to "hack" studying

    I really agree with the first quote in the OP. I've never been good at memorizing dates, facts, or other important data. I've always been a quick learner and it has been because I link the concept or topic that I am learning to past events or data. This is the reason I am able to learn new math...

    INTP Relationship Troubles

    What you're doing is the right thing. I think if she doesn't want to discuss things that make the both of you feel bad then it's not worth it. Being annoying for asking why? Isn't asking why a general part of who people are? (maybe more so INTP) In the end it's all up to how you feel. Don't...

    What Are INTP's Passionate About?

    Re: What Are INTP's Passsionate About? This in every way. My #1 passion is learning about how things work. The above is closely tied into my passion, though.

    Are you Arrogant?

    Yes, top 10%. Is my choice a good enough reason for you to think that I believe myself to be arrogant? I have a neutral outward experience. That is to say that I can be humble and arrogant at times. It changes based on the audience. The reason I didn't pick we're all equal is... every time I try...

    Constantly fighting myself

    Pity from others is never wanted by me either. I don't care what others think about me, though. I am my own person that can live with my choices. Let them be my own. Others may say that being extroverted is great. That would be like me telling those people that reading a book for 5hrs...

    Most horrific popular media

    I don't pay attention to popular media or news. Most of the stories are too boring or just pathetic stories of people's ignorance to me. To me, it's just a city/state/nation wide gossip show. There are something that are of importance, though. The things I find important are usually global...

    Sounds quite INTP to me... I am no expert, though. Self proclaimed INTP and I feel the same way you do.

    I would think knowing any psychological background of said subject would be beneficial. Some others have said, though, that it likely matters on what the end goal is.

    What is a choice?

    We have an illusion of free will. All choices are made based off of a previous experience. Anytime a choice is made there is a reason that choice was made. I don't really feel like going in depth explaining why I think this way because it is late. As of now I am "choosing" to sleep but the...

    So I finally started living in my van full time...

    I have thought of doing something similar. I wouldn't want to live in a van permanently but I do want to travel the country in say... an SUV that I've made into a mobile "apartment". It would have nothing but clothes, food storage, and a bed so I wouldn't have to pay for hotel rooms. I would...

    Do you have a problem with others informing you of something you already know?

    I find it to be more annoying when someone tries explaining to me something that I already know but they are wrong about the subject. Please, don't "teach" me incorrect information.

    Achieving financial independence

    This is a definite goal of mine. I must finish school in order for me to achieve it, though. So, a slave I will be until I can buy my freedom.

    Have you ever done this while driving?

    Those bike racks... they are annoying. I don't usually get to the degree of paranoia but I do wonder after while. It usually ends with me remembering that not many people know me. Why would a stranger follow a random car?

    fellow female INTPs views on casual sex?

    You should probably explain your reasons. Don't just bluntly state that X is bad without a reason. That is idiotic. Moving on, I don't think it is a bad thing at all if both people are understanding of the situation. Casual is just that. Don't expect more of the relationship. I personally...

    I found my self in many situations when someone would say the classic "excuses, excuses" meme. I would then proceed to say, "No, these are my reasons." It's not really my place to make them like my reasons enough to excuse something.

    I should revise my statement to mean "creativity". Anything outside of what has always been done if frowned upon. Unless, of course, you channel through the right people.

    Nostalgia - Are you drawn to it?

    I like it when I find old items from my past. It can be a nice feeling to "relive" the events that may have coincided with said item. That said, I make no effort at all to keep anything. I usually go through modes of cleaning and find things... I then think "why the hell do I still have this?"...

    What's your ideal occupation?

    Well, it seems my prior choice to become an electrical engineer should suit me well. I might dual degree with computer engineering as well. I would say that's my practical place. I think my ideal would be "Wizard" in another universe. :P

    I would not do it even after kids. I mean to say that afterwards biologically speaking it would not matter. Which is also what I mean by DNA having purpose. It exists to exist.

    I never got to the point of knife on skin but the thought crossed my mind. Life seemed pointless and in the grand scheme it is. We live, we die, and the universe moves on without us.

    No I meant actual officers sorry about that. I'm not sure about the Army (sorry again) but I do know the Air Force has an engineering department. Your experience doesn't matter as far as I know. In the enlisted world as long as you made it through school you were as good as anyone else. I can't...

    Reluctantly If you have a BS of whatever engineering your best bet is to go officer if you're seriously thinking about joining. You get twice the pay and you can even get an actuall engineering job where you really aren't even military anymore. You still are but it's different from most everyone...

    Summed up quite well. It's possible but not ideal. I was an electronics tech so I had a lot of things to puzzle over and fix. The problem was I always had to be in a team due to the nature of the job. Also, political BS was too much to deal with. Like I said though, possible but not ideal.
