    Any female INTPs here?

    People normally respond to what they see/experience, as a survival and ease-of-use mechanism. If something appears harmful, they stay away. If it doesn't seem to be a threat and provides something positive, they will engage it. "Reading beneath something" is basically engaging with shadows and...

    Last movie you watched

    I have to finish watching it. It's a Taika Waititi ("JoJo Rabbit" and "Thor:Ragnarok" among others) film. And you are right, the acting and the film has been as funny as hell so far! I am a fan of Villeneuve's "Enemy" as well, although I know the end throws some people for a loop and had me as...

    Regarding Indoctrination

    Everyone is indoctrinated -- we are all given a foundation and framework just from being born into a certain culture, a certain body, a certain time period. It limits the information we are given. So I don't fault anyone for what they're born into it, we all have a starting point in life. BUT...

    Last movie you watched

    I think Teller is a decent actor, I just don't connect with him like some other actors I watch and am often indifferent towards his presence in a film. However, I find him kind of fascinating when he plays extroverted characters like he did in The Spectacular Now (the character of Sutter), I...

    Star Trek Picard

    The romulans have their own goals but essentially contribute to the borg reclamation project occurring on the cube where the XB's (ex-Borg) are having all their prostheses removed and undergo psyche work and are restored at least as much as possible to what they were before being assimilated...

    Daenerys Targaryen, Why Fire and Blood?

    Yeah, Tyrion and Arya I think were GRRM's favorite characters that he wrote. (Or maybe he said his wife's was Arya.) Tyrion was justifiably brilliant as long as they were pulling on GRRM's actual text for their scripts, but he was a complete dolt in the last few seasons to the degree it became a...

    Daenerys Targaryen, Why Fire and Blood?

    I would only watch it through Season 4 (the first four were really great), or maybe into some of Season 5 (ignoring the Dorne subplot), and then ditch it like a hot potato... although we got occasional good things (like the Hardhome episode, or The Door, or the resolution to the Ramsey plotline...

    Personal Trouble Posting Thoughts

    I would just post. It's better to post something than to never post anything. I have similar problems in overthinking and not wanting to impose on others, come across as needy, or maybe just posting and get no response, or eventually resolving it myself, or just feeling like I can't quite...

    Which tv series are you watching?

    Finished Mr. Robot (USA) last week. Pretty much one of my favorite things I've seen and helped cushion the crap of bad TV and film series endings in 2019. I'm glad it existed, despite Season 2 losing its way for awhile. Provocative and moving, and protagonists I can relate to, I never really...

    Star War: Rise of Skywalker

    I'm not particularly enamoured with Yoda, but I took it as just to not attempt something half-heartedly. "I'll try" can indicate someone who lacks commitment or doesn't necessarily believe in what they are doing.

    Star War: Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars doesn't bother to break it down into the level of nuance you do. After all, Leia strips Poe of his rank when he disobeys -- so obviously she has authority and her replacements are supposed to be given the same authority as well. So if you go by what the film establishes (not what your...

    Star War: Rise of Skywalker

    Does it matter if they are all dead? the tradeoff still is not worth. By the end of the film, despite having destroyed a dreadnaught... no one arrives to save them. they are left to die. It wasn't strategically the best place to attempt that move, it was an impulsive decision. The other lousy...

    Star War: Rise of Skywalker

    Yeah, I'm not like Rose -- for me, if everyone is going to die, I would say it's worth one person crashing into the cannon to save everyone rather than waiting around for some deus ex machina to show up. So her choice pissed me off -- so stupid -- until I rewatched and then really got that her...

    Star War: Rise of Skywalker

    I liked The Force awakens when it came out but it was too derivative of A New Hope -- I accepted that because I felt it was trying to bridge between old and new fans, and the next film would kick things in to something more original. I disliked The Last Jedi when it came out because it...

    Diablo 4

    Geez and I just played Diablo 3 for the first time this weekend. I guess I missed the bus by at least five years or something. (It's an amusing game to waste time on when I have nothing to do but otherwise just seems like Torchlight. Which I guess was made by former Diablo devs, so... yeah.)

    INTJ or INTP: How did you know?

    While I do not necessarily agree with your typing conclusions (there's lots of reasons for people to avoid silliness), FWIW I did actually LOL at what you sent. So freaking random. I do think P leaners are more likely to laugh at randomness.

    Any female INTPs here?

    Yeah, there's a lot of faking it until you make it. I've been told too that I seem like an extravert, but fuck no. I used to think I had social skills (and I guess I do, after all this time) but I feel most of the time like I'm just trying to emulate something I read out of a book and don't...

    ha Wait until you see the 171 minute director's cut. I'm still catching up on small indie films this year (so I have some stuff yet to watch), but for a 2019 where the large releases have been kinda meh, at least I was smiling through a lot of this film. It's so off the rails but Aster shows a...

    Yes! We will trick the world into peace, while stealing all the Mars bars behind the scenes. It's brilliant, I tell you, BRILLIANT!

    What are you currently playing?

    Yup. I occasionally post here. I post a bit on TypC out of force of habit. But it all feels rather pointless now. People and the world have moved on. There is barely any post traffic, and what exists isn't really aimed at engaging other people.

    Finished the 2019 version of Pet Sematary. Sigh. I had some high hopes, acting was fine, great production quality -- but the script just wasn't there. It was KIND of there but not really; and in fact, then it takes a hard left turn away from the book in the middle, and then proceeds to become a...

    Last movie you watched

    I Am Mother was better than I had expected, but I don't think I'd watch it again, especially in terms of how long it took to get up to speed. It's kind of cobbled together of ideas from better films. In its favor, Clara Rugaard (the girl) was solid and I think we will see more of her; It also...

    I tend to just see him a generally benevolent person who seems to be well-liked and who can sometimes generate enthusiasm for things he is enthusiastic about. I don't seem him as particularly talented (not meant as a slight, but he does better playing himself than a character, in terms of acting...

    is death and change the same thing?

    How could there not be? Motion is change. Non-motion is... inert. I'm not sure what distinction you are trying to make, simultaneously saying you are implying the change process in philosophical terms and yet as a physical/chemical change. Which are you actually focusing on? Metaphorically...

    Daenerys Targaryen, Why Fire and Blood?

    Yeah, the Mile Cyrus episode wasn't bad because Miley was in it (she was actually one of the best elements of the episode, which is sad), it's because the episode wasn't even clear about what it was trying to accomplish until about 40 minutes in. It was aimless / all over the place, it seemed...

    Last movie you watched

    I think the films are exactly what they market themselves to be. That being said, I think the first was the best in terms of being delivered cleanly and to the point. They also wisely didn't give Keanu much to say in any of them and relied on the talents of the supporting cast to carry any...

    Daenerys Targaryen, Why Fire and Blood?

    Season 5 of Black Mirror was "eh," to be honest. Two of the episodes weren't horrible, but it's not "top of its game" stuff like some prior seasons. Still, I found "Smithereens" an apropos commentary on the current state of social media, especially when it can reduce human trauma to simple...

    It was enjoyable -- Karen Kitsuma directed, look up "jennifer's body" and last year's "Destroyer" with a decent performance by nicole Kidman for her other directorial works. Liked this movie a lot. The writer's written some other notable work as well (Taylor Sheridan) -- for example, both...

    John Wick 3 Parabellum -- pretty much right along the lines of the first two, if you're into it.

    Your Most Hated Movies

    I think it is more about personality type than gender per se. I think most Thinking women I've talked to are more critical of it than Feeling women.

    D&D Spells

    Yeah, Fire Bolt is great... if what you are fighting is not resistant to fire. Which starts happening a lot by level 5-6, at least in our campaigns, as it's the most common form of damage. I have already been in fights where my Fire Bolt and my Ray of Frost had no effect. However, that still...

    Yeah, the joke of Eldritch Blast is that warlocks are meant to spam it. However, despite how annoying that is, it's essentially the best cantrip damage spell in the game. Force damage, which is rarely resisted. (Compare to Fire Bolt or Ray of Frost or whatever.) it's d10 per bolt you can split...

    Not as much a deviation as the Mandarin was in Iron Man 3, honestly. I was okay with Zemo. I've seen a lot of scarred super villains. (Heck, Crossbones was in the same film. Yawn.) They could have called him anything else, I guess, to avoid tying it to an existing character. I found him more...
