    I find myself to be very sensitive to most stimuli in life. Most of this sensitivity is very positive in experience but a lot of the time it is not. Either way, I view it a providing a very dynamic and rich way of living and I am glad that I am a sensitive person. It does sometimes make it...

    What is is your existential position?

    This is an odd pole. I voted independent only because it was the only one that I understood.

    INTP personality and school

    For those of you who got good grades regardless of how much you cared, or got along with the teachers even though you didnt see eye to eye. My question is why? What was your motivation? Did you find it worth whatever effort you put into it? These are honest questions that I am really curious...

    I think I might use pot as a vice if it didnt make me overwhelmingly cerebral. Thank you very much, but I am quite good at doing that on my own.

    Ever get into Trouble at School?

    I only really got in trouble in an art class I had in high school. In thought it was really funny because I got in trouble because I thought too much "outside the box" in an art class where a person is encouraged to perform this particular task. The art teacher I had was probably the most...

    Music is definitely a vice for me. I rely on it to function and cope with the world in a manner that could definitely be seen as unhealthy. I use music as a support and I might be a stronger person if I didnt need it so much.

    Oh I can definitely relate to shutting up that monologue with alcohol, Agent Intellect. I drink a lot to cope with many things including dealing with emotion and not having any form of support so I use alcohol as a crutch. I also smoke only when I am feeling particularly self-destructive. My...

    Gender Roles

    I have a question for you Murkrow. Who is it do you think that controls this perspective? If the masculine in stronger and superior to the feminine, do women contribute to this attitude as well? If both women and men felt this way, I could see this explaining the double standard but a part of...

    INTP personality and school

    I love that quote. On a similar note, If you think of those that do the best in school, and I mean going into post-graduate education, the only option they really resort to is becoming Teachers. Therefore making system a closed cycle. It seems really self-defeating.

    Revolving interests?

    My interests and projects dont revolve they just burn up and die easily. I can never seem to finish any project that I am working on because once I figure it out, I totally loose interest and I am never to return to it again. This is a big problem for me and I really wish I wasnt like this...

    INTP personality and school

    I am the last person that should be pointing this out especially since I just mentioned how bad of a speller I am but it just made me laugh too hard. I think that as INTPs, we are very individualistic and want to do things our own way and on our own terms. This always causes problems in...

    Gender Roles

    Interesting. I have never thought of it as the masculine being stronger and superior to the feminine. It makes so much sense and would explain those attitudes. I guess me not thinking in those terms could possibly reflect a change in younger generations attitudes toward gender roles...

    Who is/are your favorite singer/music band?

    Tekton, I am glad to see you listen to bands like Digitalism, Simian Mobile Disco, MSTRKRFT, and Soulwax. They are all so great I just hope that they have some lasting power. I love that filthy Electro stuff. Oh, I just want to geek out on music right now. Other greats include; Elliot Smith...

    INTP personality and school

    Has being an INTP ever caused you any problems in school? If so, what kind of problems? I am talking strictly academically and not socially. The biggest problem I had was seeing the value of grades and was completely satisfied with getting a C in every class. This wasnt because I did not want...

    Self Esteem

    Looks although important, seem to be more trivial than the mind or soul. Being viewed as having a beautiful soul would be great but I think greater achievements are made with the mind. So that is how I would like others to see me only being able to choose one.

    Gender Roles

    The gender roles in America are definitely being blurred and have been noticeably sense the 60's which I believe is a great thing. I think however that women have made much more movement in this than men. In society, there seems to be a double standard where it is much more acceptable for...

    Maggie Gyllenhaal

    I totally disagree. I think that it was a great role for her because she is not a typical actress for that role and she pulled it off well. I think that she is very gorgeous and a good actress. Have you seen Stranger Than Fiction? She is amazingly hot in that.

    INTP in the office
