If anyone could give me some feedback I would greatly appreciate it. I know it's a bit long, but stick in there. I'm linking to the .html version because this forum kills any typographical formatting it contained.
The INTP weakness would be to know every ethical system inside and out, yet have no attachment to any of them. It may sound anti-philosophical, but at a certain time every person has to choose what they believe. Do you want to be Spock (cold, logical and detached from the world), or something a...
Sometimes I'll hear whispering if I keep my fan on. It's almost as if the sound of the fan is suggesting the sound of voices and the mind is filling in the blanks. Just like if I was faintly hearing a song and my mind was filling in the portions I couldn't hear as well. Is this considered a...
It's already been stated before, but ultimately every subject is potentially philosophical. That is to say, every subject can be approached from a philosophic standpoint. The philosopher's toolkit for understanding the world will be somewhat different from a scientist or an engineer. Philosophy...
I've never seen religion as a method for learning information about the world. People who view it as such usually compare it against science.
Religion gives meaning and motion to life. Everyone has their own "religion" or meaning, unless they're a nihilist.
Mmmm, this sounds a lot like me. I'll go for walks in the middle of the night just to think about life. Do you keep a journal? I've noticed if anything was personally bugging me I'd hide my feelings (some sort of internal denial?). Until I wrote my thoughts down, or talk to a friend about them...
Before someone reaches the point of taking another life, it seems necessary to abstract or generalize the victims existence. Like DreamMancer mentioned, technology like unmanned drones allows the murderer to kill from a distance, an emotional distance in which the subject is abstract.
intpz Journalling and talking both include externalizing your feelings. I'm not sure if you're confident expressing your feelings to yourself or to other people. I assume it's common for INTPs to have trouble expressing their emotions confidently.
The facebook groups are interesting, but most of the serious conversations devolve into trolling after a dozen posts. A fellow INTP friend of mine started a more serious facebook INTP group where trolling is less existent.
I'm at a crossroads in my life right now. Everything is set up for me to transfer to a 4 year Uni, but I haven't declared a major.
My parents tell me I should go into law, because I love to argue. Though I'm not entirely sure If I'd be willing to go through all the schooling required for a...
Let's make this a Post Rock thread. I'm ready for some epic feels.
"I mean" "you know" and "like" are filler words. If I ever use an "I mean" it's to give myself extra time to think of the next word.
Dude, man and bro are very popular words in CA. It's just slang, and like all slang, some people will look down on you for using such words.
Listening to a thoughtful comedian is the closest a great deal of people will get to philosophy. Obviously his comedy isn't philosophy in the strict sense, but I've noticed quite a few comedic insights that seem philosophical.
I really do enjoy his show. It's a mix comedy and humanistic insights.
The frontpage of reddit is usually pretty bad, though you can find a few interesting subreddits if you search hard enough.
Here are a few of my favorites:
@ Missquote & Roran
I feel that's what most people do. They're directionless without a long-term strung in front of their eyes. I'm by no means a goal orientated person, which may explain this existential angst for meaning.

I had barely woken up this morning when my brain posed this question: "What are you doing in life?".
I'm depressed, right? Maybe I need religion, or another cat.
Have you ever had these thoughts? How did you deal/not deal with them?
Thanks Puffy. I haven't been active for a long time but I'll occasionally check up/stalk a few select people.
It's an honour to be associated with an Arcade Fire song. Funeral is one of my favourite album.
On an entirely unrelated note:
Haha. You Brits! Are you going to start telling me I'm spelling color and armor incorrectly?
Britain would never accept me. I prefer coffee over tea.
They're nowhere as adorable as you guys.
LOOOOL INTPS ARE SO COOL!1 Lets go read some books and talk about philosophy! Yeah philosophy! Have...
but.... what if I want to be sexually assaulted? WHAT THEN?
Yes! My thoughts exactly. It's all pseudo intellectualism and "dose f33lers sure r reterdud!". I ALMOST FELT NORMAL. D:
YOU ARE A MASTER! Saying cunt with an American accent doesn't satisfy.
