Default Weird eccentric INTP stuff you do

So I know INTP's are supposed to be really eccentric and stuff, so lets hear about some of the quirky stuff you do!
I'll start: Today I sat in the mess hall with a bunch of my friends who were carrying on a conversation that bored me, so I just put on earphones and listened to Beethoven ignoring them.

So what are some weird habits or things you do?

I do this really weird thing where I will play with the top of my lip for no particular reason. I usually do it when I am inside my head for whatever reason (if only it were always for cool serious thoughts...). I'm a guy...it is not an attempt to look cute.

I now, without fail, always say meow instead of now. It's become almost second nature, I even say it to strangers or people who I should probably respect and all that. I've done it for years honestly, there's no turning back meow :/

Even though English is my first (and only, really) language, when I swear it is usually in Russian or German.

Hmm... that is odd.

The biggest thing for me is probably my goofiness. I'm laughing as I write this post right now. If I get tickled enough or depending on my current environment it could be hard for me to try to be serious. While other times it's hard to get me to crack a smile for anything, yet I feel like I'm in the same mood all time unless I'm upset which is rare.

One really strange thing that I do is I count the lines dividing the lanes on a highway. I sometimes even tap the lines as the car goes by. There's other stuff but I don't remember them all.

I do all of those things also.

One weird thing I do is organize certain things in my room to be in certain spots, and they have to face a certain direction(pillows facing window, etc.), but they only have to be in that location when I'm playing guitar.

What's weird about listening to music while your friends talk? I don't understand that one.

Having to arrange your room in a certain way in order to play guitar is hilarious. The specificity. But actually, it's not that unusual, I think, considering we work and learn best when our environment is kept consistent.

I generally do obnoxious things. Obnoxious walks, obnoxious faces, obnoxious accents, incredibly exaggerated and highly obnoxious characters, etc. I used to do this really annoying lumbering walk, hefting myself from side to side on bent legs like a sumo wrestler but at an angle with my arms jerking and my face twitching. I try not to do that anymore. I've also got several obnoxious dances, but they're generally all done with a huge mouth and expression of extreme eagerness. And I like to make sudden loud noises and motions.

Other than that, I'm pretty normal.

I'm probably not INTP but I always have to have my watch on when I leave my room. If I have somehow misplaced it or cannot find it then I wear a long sleeved article of clothing instead. I always take it off when I'm on the piano though (the watch, not the clothes).

I was am always surprised when I find out that I do something 'strange' or 'wierd' , because it seemed either natural to me, or I don't even notice what I am doing.

in the line of forgetfulness: Forgetting to hold onto a glass of water. Spilling water all over you, because you seem to forget where your mouth is placed. Forgetting to sit properly on the chair so that you fall off.

let's see.. I get extremely annoyed when people use more than one exclamation mark at the end of sentences.

"One really strange thing that I do is I count the lines dividing the lanes on a highway. I sometimes even tap the lines as the car goes by"

ah : ) Whenever I see any front doors, I always note whether they open outwards or inwards.

and current event just gave me another to the list: I never pick up the phone at home unless I know it is for me. If rings, I check the number if no one is in the vicinity. If it is not a number I recognize then I just carry the phone to my mother (usually it is for her) , and let her deal with the caller.

I've taken to saluting people and saying 'evening' by way of a greeting or acknowledgement routine, regardless of the time of day.

Before I started driving I used to play weird games on the motorway where I would do some weird, unnoticeable action (like twitch something) in reaction to counting motorway lights or the pattern car headlight light patterns would make. I would notice whether both lights were on, just one or none.

I also make people hug, handshake or high-five for no reason other than I like making people bewildered.

There are probably others...

I can't stand people talking BS to impress others regardless of what topic/subject the BS is relevant to. I also don't like listening to friends who are talking about someone I don't know.
I usually listen to music or get away from them to stop my ears from bleeding.

In the routine of turning out lights and such before I go to bed, or in putting away dishes, or just about any other task with multiple parts, i try to do some weird kind of spinning elegant dance leading to the ultimate efficiency and grace to complete my task, but i just end up looking like a fairy most of the time lol.
I also sit and clatter my teeth into little tunes mixed in with making a popping sound of my lips to create a music i would assume is unpleasant to all but me, all this while closing my eyes and bobbing my head around, when i should be paying attention in class haha

I've noticed that I can't look into peoples eyes for long at all, usually while they talk. Even if I have known the person for ages, I have to look away, if I don't my head begins to turn. The duration of eye contact is usually one second, then I glance at something else, then I look back at the speaker. I get the feeling that they don't think I'm paying attention.
Theres also my whistling, I bet it drives my family mad, especially my step-dad. When I do a job (folding the washing or emptying the dishwasher) I have to listen to my iPod, and along with that, I must whistle to the music. I'm not sure if it is loud, I have noise cancelation earbuds, but I'm pretty sure it's odd, Btw, it is metal that I listen to, which may increase the wierdness

There's this thing that happens while getting some water.. Sometimes I'll be thinking of some kind of flavored drink as I'm pouring water and when I take the first few sips, for a split second there's the taste of the drink I was thinking of conflicting with the taste of water.


I always have to make sure everything is turned off, locked or something like that, before I leave the house.


Can't help but synchronize my walking to the songs I'm listening to(or the pattern in my head).

I have some sort of compulsive paranoia where I make up possibilities for what could go wrong, and then I check 3-4 times to make sure I'm not creating a false illusion of security and overconfidence. For example, when I go to bed, I suddenly get up and look at my phone to see if the alarm clock is turned on. Then I do the same to see if I didn't accidentally turn off my phone. And so on.

I also look around randomly when talking to people, and with women I sometimes absent-mindedly look in the direction of their breasts.

Anything in particular you look for? I would also say that women are then more lucky then people. Or perhaps not. Aren't you having a conversation, should you then be absent minded?




I tend to photograph myself before I go out. And it's rather technical, sideview, frontview and isometric view. There could or could not be a detailed view. This is documentation to find relations toward the events during the night.

When driving a car, and sometimes when walking I tend to use my phone as a tape recorder and practice voices. I think the voice is far more important then one realize. And I am not satisfied with the one I have developed. If someone saw this, I would presume they thought I was mad.
And etc. It's the same with walking, body language etc, I try to improve, invent or copy more advanced ways to do so. Sometimes this is a complete failure. But overall, I think I learn. And it makes me more focused, more there, as I try to to figure out cause and effect, emotional reactions, in short what is happening. Unfortunately I'm just as often not there mentally, and is prone to say, ehh? will you say again? So there is not consistency in all of this.

Also, the classic, "what are you smiling off?". Or people just smiling back, making me all confused. What happens is that I'm smiling off something in my head, and they think I'm smiling at them. And then I, as I'm low on Fe, I wonder why they smile at me. And then they mirror my lack of smile, and turns sour. And the whole cascade of events is just because I amused myself. And then I may smile again, as I think the whole situation is absurd.

But these things are just quirks. Stuff I do to amuse myself and perhaps learn a thing or two. When I stop to talk to people, I think they find me to be just like them. I think I normalize and adhere to shared principles of interaction (within reason, no silly stuff, like gossip and things like that, I'll raise an eyebrow at that, unless of course the gossip is really interesting).

Dude. You are awesome.
Sometimes before walking into a store or something I practice what I'm going to say, and go over all the possibilities of how they'll react and prepare all kinds of contingency plans.
I can relate to almost everything that was said here in some form.
Whenever someone says to me "what's up?" or something like that (my most hated phrase in the whole world) I'll just smile awkwardly and mumble something in response. I realized that as far as they're concerned I just rudely ignored them. Now whenever someone says that to me I suspect they might just be saying it to make fun of my inability to respond, because I can't conceive of any other reason why someone would ask such a stupid meaningless question.

Someone asked for details, so here's a crash course in German/Russian swearing

Russian:
SOO-kah (bitch)
Buh-lee-ad (fuck) (say this very quickly)
SEED-mo (shit) (again, say very quickly)
MOO-dak (asshole)

German:
SHY-seh (shit)
VAIR-dampt (damn)
SHYS-kerl (motherfucker)

Well, when I focus on the content of the conversation, I can lose control of where I'm looking. I do that to pretty much everyone if the topic of conversation is engaging enough. It's just that with women, there is a taboo area that is generally unacceptable to look at, and when I'm not paying attention to where I'm looking at, I have a problem.

apparently i talk to myself. only realised this when my mum asked me not to talk to the ghosts and talk to her instead. actuallly, i just talk to people in my head, but only say my part of the conversation out loud.

here's another thing, rules for walking up the stairs:
1. always start on the left foot
2. try to end on the right foot
3. if 2. is not possible, when walking down the same flight of stairs, start with the right foot, so that you will end on the right foot
4. if the steps aren't too high for my short legs, i'll try to walk up two steps at a time. when this happens, the above rules still apply.

Hold items by an unusual way.
When i swear then it is in English or Slovak
My universal answer on What are you doing is thinking (donīt think it is weird)
overphylosophing everything
Playing chess with myself
Sometimes absolutely disconected from real world in my virtual one
Talking to myself
Like to be alone (or maybe donīt like to be with people).
Got one donīt know if friend is right word who actually doesnīt exist but i know he doesnīt but for example because of him i learned myself to skate on ice skaters
He used to calm me down when i was nervous

In Israel (where I live) everyone swears in Arabic or Russian or English, in fact I can't think of any real swear words in Hebrew, I just don't think they exist. I went through a phase of swearing in German also, but now I swear in Arabic or English. I think Arabic is the best language for swearing in, it's like it was made for it! I imagine Japanese could be good for swearing too... gotta learn some Japanese swear words.

Well, it seems it true, you really aren't an INTP are you? You can't be if all of your eccentricities sound like something out of an INTP profile description. -

Well i really donīt know but if you ask me on my MBTI type i will be INTP.
I identifi myself with a lot on this site. These similarities i wrote a strong for me i didnīt write all of them. I am really weird. I always thought but this much. There is a possibility i am unclassifiable. Just try to classify me. I donīt want to persuade you. Now even i donīt know what am i if not an INTP. When i saw and did MBTI test description fits me pretty well but ok i admit it doesnīt have to mean i am an INTP. Asking again. Which type do you think i am? And that donīt think it is weird i mean that universal answer i donīt consicer it weird.

When I'm walking on a pavement I always have a habitual visualisation that my feet are drill things, and every first individual tile is made of dirt and ever second is just air. And gravity pulls towards the road. I therefore have to drill upwards through the dirt ones and build up enough momentum to carry me through the air to the next block of dirt as I fall through the air, creating a weird waving pattern.
I also write in encriptions sometimes.

Yours is probably more easy to fit with society than mine. I sleep anywhere from 2-6am to 8am-3pm depending on whether I have to work with society or not. Late night to late afternoon/morning is better. I agree though, I like to be awake when it's dark and everyone else is asleep. They don't understand how disruptive they are. For example I'm all tense just because my mum won't get off the sofa. I hate that she won't move. However, being an ESFJ, she doesn't understand and feels insulted if I try to make her get up, even if I explain.

lol @ meow instead of now xD how did that start?

i don't really do anything eccentric per so except maybe bike at night because there is no traffic at that time, but my friends tell me my way of interacting with people is really strange. like even if i'm not being awkward (which i am pretty socially awkward too much when i'm uncomfortable), it's still weird somehow? like sometimes i'll be the sweetest person in the world and then a minute later i'll be an unintentional jackass or something, i guess. no transparency/subtlety despite the fact that i'm a self-conscious, paranoid control freak about the way i express myself a lot. but anyway, this emoticon is super cool:

Funny, my first language is Russian and I prefer for swearing English, Spanish, Arabic and other words and sentences from all over the world. I see cursing in mother tongue only as a way to express very strong emotions like hatred or rage (which I usually lack of).
Btw, some of words you wrote in Russian look misspelled to me.

I've also recently taken up reading books upside down? I'm not entirely sure why, but it's something I've been meaning to try for a while.

I do that and occasionally talk to myself. I consider it self-narration as it is usually just a means to sort out my thoughts. It can get really jumbled in there, if you know what I mean.

Random Fact: 'L' is most likely not an INTP. He is far to forward with his thought processes on reaching a direct conclusion and explains them in more of an INTJ manner. We have a much harder time figuring out exactly how we arrived at the conclusion. Sorry, the constant fan-dom(most likely spelled wrong, correct me if so) of 'L' from Deathnote drives me nuts.

Idk if these count but...
- I like to sleep at the foot of my bed
- I like soup straight out of the can
- 3am-4am I feel I think the clearest (or get most work done)
- I make weird faces or dramatic faces
- I make weird noises
- I used to climb stairs like i was a dog or tiger
- I get confused really easily; it's not even funny. Like today I was climbing down two flights of stairs at my school and when i got to the main floor I was confused as to where I was at. I had to walk around a bit to figure out where i was :/
- I jump? or spaz? at random sounds ( like a cell phone going off in class) or when I just notice someone is coming or next to me.

I say 'what' when I zone back in, even if whatever's happening is none of my business. I'm asking myself as much as anyone else.

Sometimes I become really aware of minor sounds or presences in the surrounding environment and they really annoy me.

I'm not sure if this is INTP stuff, but I tend to zone out when someone is talking to me, unless it's super interesting. I also get singularly obsessed with either getting something, or going somewhere.
