    Flow State

    I sometimes get into flow state when drumming. I play percussion and drums, after warming up for about half an hour, if at least one or two of the other people who are playing also get into this mood, it feels like my body is just playing on it's own (kind of like when driving or riding a bike)...

    Bitcoin

    But anyways... What do you guys think the future holds for bitcoin? A few options I can think of are: 1) It continues to grow in popularity, becomes regulated and taxed, and starts becoming the main currency of the internet. (obviously if this happens it won't stop there, but I don't want to go...

    do any of you intp's work-out?

    When I was in the army I was fit as fuck... Nowadays I'm just travelling, so I have no running shoes, and I'm afraid I'll wear out my good hiking boots if I run in them too much, so I don't run anymore. But I do walk on average probably 2-4 hours a day, often with about 15-16 kilos on my back...

    Interested in learning programming

    Okay!:D So (almost 6 months after my OP, like any good INTP) I've finally started! I got a job which requires only a few hours of work a day, can be done from anywhere in the world, so long as I have an internet connection, and with pay that is ridiculous (I feel like I'm cheating in life). I...

    An introvert's desire for social interaction

    From what you're describing, it sounds like you're experiencing something very similar to something I've experienced. I think it stems from a combination of a sort of boost in confidence you get from learning that you actually have good social skills, basically cancelling out social anxiety...

    INTP in despair.

    I can relate to everything you're saying here. I know where you are, I've been there too. There are two important things you will need to learn if you want to get through this with your sanity intact: 1) "Doublethink" as George Orwell called it. Knowing that it's all a farce, that you are...

    INTP in despair.

    What do you do in the military? I was in the Israeli army for three years, honestly, I enjoyed most of it. I found that doing brainless tasks meant I had lots of time to think, and I also made great friends. What can you do to get out of the military as fast as you can, or what can you do to...

    Should I study physics or computer science?

    I'm going to start university next year, and I need to decide what to study. So it boils down to this, physics really really fascinates me, and I kind of feel like it should be the basis for erything else I learn, like it's the ABC's of scientific thinking and understanding. On the other hand...

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what exactly is UNIX? And does having it make things easier or having it built in make things easier, and why?

    Career Help

    From the op, it sounds like you haven't learned yet that your life will not follow a predetermined course.

    Intuitive spotting

    While the body type may be a rough indicator of S/N, you shouldn't rely on it. I know plenty of fat or skinny sensors, and plenty of very fit Intuitives (myself included)

    Intuitive spotting

    Just talk to them, bring up something new and see how they respond. Intuitives can think and give you a new opinion on the spot, conversations which aren't small talk won't just die out. Discussions with Sensors tend to be repetitive, with them mainly focusing on expressing the same opinion...

    MBTI Quirks

    ENTPs and INTPs do share all of the same functions. Something an ENTP friend of mine pointed out to me today is that people tend to use their auxiliary function when meeting new people/trying to make an impression. For example, I try to appear more extroverted and easygoing (Ne/maybe Fe), and...

    MBTI Quirks

    Sure, everyone does something like that, but Se/Ni users have a very specific kind of intense focus which we're talking about. I don't know any INxJs well enough to say, but all the ESxPs, ISxPs, and ENxJs I know do it, with (what seems to me) an obvious correlation between how low their Ni is...

    languages and MBTI

    Makes sense. I speak two languages, so I can relate to that. I think it probably is more of a Fe thing, adapting to the different cultures. But it's also the context each language has to you. For example, English is my first language, that I use with my family and used with almost all my...

    MBTI Quirks

    I've noticed it in ESTPs as well. Maybe an Se thing? ENTPs are often bad with grammar, and have a tendency to assign their own meaning to specific words and using them without realizing that to everyone else these words don't have the same meaning. ISFPs never find NP humor funny...

    The Hebrew Thread

    I don't really know all these rules with the vowels and stuff, and also I don't think you can write the vowels with windows. I think you should teach the אותיות סופיות with the regular ones, they're the same only they're used at the end of the word. (unless there are some other rules I'm...

    I love ants, I find them fascinating.
