    Who not to listen to

    There are a lot of people on this planet. Most of them think they have something to say, but you've only got one lifetime and a finite supply of patience. You don't have the luxury of knowing whether what someone will say is valuable until you hear it, so you develop heuristics for who you...

    Times you've changed your mind

    INTPs are supposed to be pretty open-minded. They're supposed to be curious. This forum should reflect that. But I'm sitting here and it's been a while since I changed my mind on anything meaningful. And I can't remember many recent instances where other people have either. I'm concerned that...

    151 Pokemon memory test challenge

    I posted this in gaming because it only applies to people who have at some point gamed. I'm interested in how aspects of pokemon are conducive to ease of memorisation. I'm pretty confident that, despite not having picked up a pokemon cartridge in many years, I could still name a good portion...

    P-hacking and scientific integrity

    I feel like one of the barriers to bridging conversations between people on the forum is the science/mysticism divide. Falling on the science side, it often seems to me that people understand that there are limitations to science, but they interpret these as fatal, which conveniently allows them...

    The advantages of conscientiousness

    This forum is full of people who can but won't do. I'm one of them. While conscientiousness is considered a personality trait, and therefore relatively stable, it can be fostered. It's something that takes effort even for those people who have it, though it takes them less effort to maintain...

    How good is your metacognition

    Make a meta-metacognitive statement about yourself. Why have you arrived at this conclusion? The INTP profile seems like it's open enough to allow its err... adherents... to decide whether they're good or bad at metacognition without compromising their identity. I think I'm okay at it in some...

    Intellectual vs. Pseudointellectual

    I see these terms being thrown around a fair bit, but I don't really see how they're useful to honest discourse. I see them either as an appeal to authority, or an ad hominem. The definitions for 'intellectual' are diverse, and seem to conform to the needs of the speaker. Likewise...

    Giant Death Robot RTS - Zero K

    Come get me One of my favourite games of all time just got released on steam. The only thing that was holding it back before was the size of its community (and subsequent difficulty finding good matches). It's completely free, with no hidden costs or intentions to monetise. I've played a long...

    Forum Commentary - The Peanut Gallery

    Everyday ethical/moral conundrums

    No overly specific hypotheticals allowed dummies! Provide your own, or answer others. Or you know, both. Try to answer as truthfully as possible, what you would actually do, not what you think you or others should do. It's late at night, you're driving along an uninhabited road, you can see...

    Incest is fine. There is nothing wrong with it. Every instance of incest I can think of that is wrong is wrong for reasons other than that it is incestuous. Prove me wrong.

    Why do we like online tests?

    I was recently called out for being a bit of a stick in the mud about a test: I guess in my mind, people can say they're not taking the tests seriously, but at some level I think they might be? Not because they're necessarily completely ignorant of the goals of the test maker, though a lot of...

    INTPf Policy Change

    Hi guys. Given our most recent drama, there’s been some discussion in the modbox and elsewhere over to what extent the expression of damaging opinions should be facilitated on this forum. On the one hand, this is a place about discussing ideas. It’s explicitly stated in the CoC that all...

    How good are you at spotting a lie?

    And how do you know how good you are? I've generally acted in such a way that it wasn't important for me to know whether people were lying. It never felt like that important a skill - but recently it's somewhat of an hobby level obsession. We've covered it a fair bit in a unit at...

    But what is thinker?

    Ideas: 1) Thinkers are just superior logical people who can handle emotions 2) Thinkers experience less emotions so it's comparitively easier to choose logic over them 3) Thinkers experience more emotion to the point they can't interpret it easily In the webserial I'm currently rereading (worm)...

    Example of how MBTI is seen in academia

    ~ My lecturer for organisational psychology I've heard a few bits and pieces about how MBTI is seen in academic circles, but this is the most direct statement I've found so far (it's consistent with everything else I've heard). The lecturer in question is extremely competent (though I don't...

    The value of IQ

    IQ has been talked about a lot on this forum. I think the way it's talked about is a subversion of the intention behind measures of intelligence, but also does those pursuing objective measures of their intelligence a disservice. If you think it's important to pursue IQ, can you explain why?

    How to Implement Design in Language

    One of my pet peeves is how terminology evolves irrationally. As a kid I used to dream of redesigning the alphabet and English as a language so that people would no longer need to take an English class past learning the letters (which would be easier since they'd all do one thing - there'd be no...

    Reception to positivity

    Something has changed in my head. I noticed while playing computer games a month or so back. The automated camaraderie of other players, the things that are said by the character and not the player, I felt myself accepting them. Positive meaningless things. It's like I can feel the...

    Lessons Learned from Gaming

    Infinity Wars ~ Come and Play plzty

    Infinity Wars is the best game I've played in a looooooong time. It's a free DCG (digital card game). Available on Steam. It's much more open-ended than it's popular rival Hearthstone, utilising an innovative commander faction system that allows for creativity in deck-building and piloting...

    Exam Time Limits and Anxiety

    Piaget: Explanation of Bias Against Sensors

    Model of Depression and Motivation

    I just had a massive Ni moment (even though it's a shadow). I'm not sure if the literature already contains such a model, as it's not an area I have spent much time studying. I do have depression, and the aspect that I find most difficult to deal with is the lack of motivation. This is the first...

    Study Tracking Thread

    Exams are rolling round, and I have a lot of study to do. Something I have always found is that if you concretely state your goals publicly, it is more difficult to rationalise moving the goal posts. This thread was created with precisely this purpose. State how long you have, how much you...

    Dual Processing Account of Reasoning

    White Nationalism

    http://www.stormfront.org/forum/ I just randomly ended up on this site after an awry google search. Is there any good side to White Nationalism? I don't really understand how someone could be so venomously ignorant. Am I missing something? Is there some redeeming quality to these views that...

    Creativity for its own sake

    I find that I prefer to come to understand at my own pace, often forsaking more immediate satiation in the form of textbooks or the internet. I get no kick out of having things explained, my beliefs are largely my own. The only time I ask for help is when I come across something so new to me...

    Ordinal Hierarchy of Feelings?

    Presentation of Information in Understanding
