  1. The close cousin of the INTP&INTJ: ENTP

    @ ENTPontificator - "Flippant", there we go. That's the word I was looking for a week earlier or so when I used "playfully snarky" (bit of an oxymoron, but almost synonymous with what I wanted to say). I would recommend trying to avoid "INxP" or "ISxP" and similar labels, as it's more...
  2. Typology “Coursework”

    Clearly I've misinterpreted. I mistook pride for arrogance and a bit of playful snarkiness (not really the right word but can't think of a better one atm) for disrespect. Unfortunately I singled you out for some reason, probably because I was just fed up with a select few members whose posts...
  3. Typology “Coursework”

    I responded a bit more high-handedly than was appropriate, but your casual dismissal that all other extroverted functions (except Ne, *gasp*) are easily recognizable just reeks of self-obsession and congratulation, and mirrors a lot of INFJs on here. I had been planning on making a post in that...
  4. Typology “Coursework”

    @TimeAsylums - lol at the Ne circlejerk. The only thing that's even remotely difficult about typing Ne-doms is differentiating between ENTPs and INTPs.
  5. Hmm I've been thinking about making a big post in the "spotting intuitives" thread but ran out...

    Hmm I've been thinking about making a big post in the "spotting intuitives" thread but ran out of steam to finish my thoughts. I think that a lot of extroverted intuitives will be typed as sensors. This seems to be most common with ENFP's and ENTJ's I've found; the former because they often lack...
  6. Is this Fe or Fi (pseudo Fe)

    This is to me a clear indicator of Fi. It's not so much about making the other person feel better as it is about staying true to your personal sense of morals, or more cynically put, making yourself feel better (a charge which could be levied at both Fe and Fi). However, Fe seems much more adept...
  7. Fe Rage or Fi Pout?

    Yes I think you could say Fe is more inclined towards rage and Fi towards pouting, but both functions are completely capable of expressing those emotions. ENTJ's are known for bouts of intense rage, but I also know that in private they do have "pouty" moments of Fi domination. Furthermore, Fi...
  8. type my brother

    After reading this I definitely think that INTJ is the most likely answer. I was caught up on your idea of him being similar to you and equating that with the same functions in a different order, completely forgetting how similar INTJs and INTPs appear on first glance. "A mechanic of abstract...
  9. type my brother

    I would say the most likely type for your brother would be ISTP. They are by far the most 'N' of any of the 'S' types. The key difference is that they enjoy abstraction which they believe holds some relevance towards life (self-improvement) or will lead to a solution to some concrete problem...
  10. Dark Materials

    "However, the "notes" of this paradoxalist do not end here. He could not help himself and went on. But it also seems to us that this may be a good place to stop." Just so that this thread has a piece of literature in it.
  11. Loving MUSE

    My best friend (she's an INTP) absolutely loves Muse, but I've always agreed with snafu's view that their music is very derivative and generic. She also subscribes to the idea that one's personal enjoyment of art is the only thing that really matters about it, which I've always disagreed with.
  12. Defining moment

    I'm sure you're aware of this, but I think that the idea for this thread is very much oversimplifying this kind of "life-changing experience". To me it seems far more likely that a person will have several "defining moments" during childhood alone, and that this person will continue to have...
  13. MBTI and game role preferences? :)

    INFJ. Usually prefer mages as their utility and playstyle appeals most to me. In League of Legends (which I haven't played in while) I am best at and enjoy playing heavy casters (mainly mid champs, but I played a lot of Urgot until the nerfbat completely crushed him). I also enjoy jungling or...
  14. Another narcissistic thread...

    snafu: we had a conversation/argument a while ago about DFW and some other stuff. I said I thought you were an INFJ then and I still think so now. And not to be rude, but I also think that part of what's skewing your results is some of your own self-absorption. More on topic: because Ni is such...
  15. Ni and Ne

    Don't remember how, but either while I was writing my post or combing it for possible criticisms DFW's name popped into my head, but that probably has a lot to do with my love for Infinite Jest. Although your points about that hybrid style are certainly applicable in regards to your writing...
  16. Ni and Ne

    From what you've just described I'm about 80% certain that you are INFJ. It sounds like if you really analyzed the situation without such a strong bias against Fe that you would realize that you are very likely an INFJ (and the fact that you're doing all this in the first place only further...
  17. Recreational drug use/experimentation

    Well it's your choice ultimately. I just love providing accurate information. You're not going to find many drugs that are less physically dangerous than weed, although psychologically weed is not free of danger due to its ability to exacerbate or contribute to an onset of schizophrenia in...
  18. Recreational drug use/experimentation

    You would have to do large amounts on an almost daily basis to have a chance at neurotoxicity, and as far as liver damage goes you would need to take an amount far exceeding 1g to get into liver complications, which is an absolutely massive dose. It was once believed that DXM caused Olney's...
  19. Recreational drug use/experimentation

    On 1st and 2nd plat doses yes, you never really lose sight of the real world. Hallucinating on a 2nd plat dose is kind of like a willful suspension of disbelief in that you have to turn out the lights and just go with it, not questioning the reality of what you're seeing because if you do you'll...
  20. Recreational drug use/experimentation

    To me, dissociation is different from depersonalization, and I know exactly what you're talking about with weed. I don't smoke weed anymore because of exactly what you described: I get paranoid, caught in thought loops, and just generally questioning everything to the point of a mild break with...
  21. Recreational drug use/experimentation

    Beware: wall of text incoming! I haven't been on this board in forever but this thread piqued my interest, and I saw some people way earlier in the thread who were interested in dissociatives, so with DXM being my drug of choice I figured I'd respond. You can get cough medication with just...
  22. Response to Pod'lair

    Adymus: A fair rebuttal. I agree that my response may have been immature, but given the information available I don't believe my current assessment is irrational. When this new body of information appears I will be more than willing to apologize if I can conclude that my first assessment was...
  23. Response to Pod'lair

    RESPONSE TO POD'LAIR http://www.docstoc.com/docs/51147681/PODLAIR-V-HALL The reason for my writing this post is to balance out the criticism of Pod'lair and, hopefully, provide a more objective criticism based on the facts so far known. Because this is not a professional critique my...
  24. The Many Faces of INFJ

    Not sure if this will be relevant but I have recently been questioning my own type and it seems that INFJ is most likely what I am. I identify very strongly with Ti and not so much with Fe, which is why I think I test as INTP. It bothers me a little that so many people here have bad experiences...
  25. Consciousness is overrated

    I'm not sure I even get the point of the thread. It sounds to me like the ranting of anyone who believes in their own paradigm about all the people who don't and why they're wrong. Not having access to the model you're working with, I can only talk about psychological typing according to Jung...
  26. INTP writers

    Yeah I've wondered that myself with DFW. I think he probably is.
