    Yes very happy. It was just what I needed, feel thoroughly refreshed (see what I did there? Talking about feelings. Lol). I'm going to stay in Sydney for the next 6 months and just see from there. Still would like to be a nomad. What have you been up to?

    Male Sexuality, Masculinity and Friendship

    Wait, who's the non-competitor in Two and a Half Men? I like the term. I'd consider myself a non-competitor for the most part. I'd suggest that another way to be a non-competitor is to get married. It's kind of a compromise between winning and losing. It's not in every male's interest to...

    Don't they speak French in Belgium? French is weird as hell? Lol. I've actually gone home to Sydney, I've been here for a week. I mistakenly thought it was cheaper than it actually was to get a flight home, because I misread the currency on the airline's website :/ I don't think I told you how...

    Ideally I'd go home for a week or so, recharge, then head back out. Australia's just so far though. I've always envied you guys in Europe where you can be in a different country with a different language in 2 hours. Partly why I was always so desperate to go.

    No Such Thing as Mental Illness

    He says he doesn't see patients through the DSM lens. There's truth to the DSM though. Not complete truth, but some truth. Perhaps the best thing to do is look at it with multiple lenses.

    I'm just recalling our last convo about your agoraphobic spell, which kind of stuck with me as I planned this 6 month hiatus overseas. As I planned I've been in Hanoi, Vietnam for more than two weeks and spent most of that time in a hotel room. I know someone here, and see her maybe every second...

    Hmmm I don't look too closely at types, I think once you start going "Is he/she/I really that type??" then you get confused and shit gets blurry. I'd be surprised if you're ENFP anyway. You just don't seem extroverted to me. Life on the road was ok until I first got mildly bored, then...

    Been hanging out a fair bit with a couple of INFPs since touring (separately from each other, that is). A funny bunch. I can easily see why we're not an ideal match for them, despite being close. It's like everything is in place, can be silent together and still completely comfortable, but...

    To all practioners of Meditation

    Apparently for a small percentage of people prone to anxiety or more specifically panic attacks, meditation can make that anxiety worse. I would put myself in that category. Unfortunate as it seems to be very effective for a lot of people.

    Should I kill myself?

    Probably she is, yes. I don't even consider someone depressed anymore unless they're at that tipping point where nothing can convince them or snap them out of it. Clearly you're inexperienced in this aspect of the psyche, but I don't blame you. I was too until fate shoved it in my face repeatedly.

    Should I kill myself?

    The most profound thing I heard was something my brother told me when I asked a similar question to the threadstarter - why kill yourself? You're going to die one day anyway. Newsflash: You were born into life with a death sentence. You're going to die. Why rush it? I understand that pain can...

    ISTJ Appreciation Thread

    I agree they're not that bad in small doses. And their effect can be grounding. It's ESTJ's that are the real enemy :evil: If they don't like us they will have us for breakfast, having the social nous to make things really miserable unlike the ISTJ who's too passive to do any of that.

    What's the difficulty with this? Basically it's a recurring trend where I want to pull someone towards the "deep and meaningful" world of the IN, and simultaneously enjoy the sensation and validation of the ES world. The problem is - neither can last for any great extent. They need the constant...

    You know what though I really do feel being an INTP is hard. I was friends (drinking buddies, mostly) with this girl at work for a fair while. We'd kind of get touchy feely each time at drinks and one day we eventually made out. I unfortunately got a bit emotionally attached even though she has...

    Arguement on 'belonging'

    Good question. Actually the thread I just started on "what is a social group" is probably the exact same thing.

    I'd be surprised if there are even any Indonesian people in Bali, considering how many of us go there. The way us Aussies treat it seems like an overseas Kings Cross, a place to get absolutely shitfaced and act like a dickhead. I reckon only a small percentage would even know that it's in...
