Why are so few INTPs on this forum.

I think the traffic on this forum used be like 30 posters if not more for a good amount of time.
Even recently there was huge spike in people.
Now days there is like 2 5 posters talking anyone time.
You don't forums would attract INTPs, where are these INTPs?

There are probably better forums we don't know about. I would think that an INTP is more likely to want to be around people who aren't like minded, and come back to like minded people when they are tired of that.

This forum has always been populated primarily by people who at some point considered INTP as a category within which they fit. Not INTPs per se. There has also always been a large confound of mental health and neurodivergence.

When I was here before, I considered INTP the best label for me even though I didn't believe in MBTI. Not everyone agreed but a fair number did. Nowadays I relate more to the INTJ description. The main shift has been from passivity to proactivity.

I agree with Endo that there are other, better places for people who fit the INTP description. I see this place as somewhere that people go to work stuff out about themselves, or as a procrastination stop. We are basically unmoderated, and the culture of the place is defined by the whims of the most active posters.

So, like everywhere else?

If you don't care about anyone's feelings anymore, and constantly brag to people about you're better than everyone else, then you would sound more like an INTJ.

If you just get more things done these days, then you sound like you're in recovery from depression & anxiety.

Like where? r/INTP?

On most of the www, the most active posters are the SJWs, or the far-right Nazis.

Those behaviours are one expression of the personality cluster I'm talking about. It's the base drives that I share with these people, flawed and otherwise. No matter.

Better places than here for INTPs? Places that support people in pursuing their interests (IMO not including MBTI though you probably disagree). Examples for my interests would be a speculative biology, psychology, sociology, engineering, or writing forum.

In fact, I think a broad psychology or even more specifically personality/psychometrics forum would serve the self-reflective function but give people more room to grow.

The problem with this is the lack of people running and promoting this forum, this web will never die since there will always be an INTP that is trying to find people who are the same wave-length but it can stagnate, there is no functioning moderator team and no one in charge of making new interesting programs.

I blame the lack of financial incentives, people need to actively want and have the ability to make this site flourish, and you gotta have a carrot in front of their face. No one is generating enough revenue by making Sponsored Posts, Generating Leads or Subscriptions.

MBTI based website like PDB and personality forum have variation of people talking about non-variety of things, one one is discussing philosophy specifically in PDB (ar as in depth here).

This site have our leads in that the interface support a close knit same minded community making very variant and very deep discussion. The problem is we need more promotions. But then again we have a very limited market.

The internet is dead, replaced by bots and NPCs.

All the real INTPs escaped to the off-world colonies, leaving this forsaken midwit planet forever. We are still working on the orbital nuclear barrage to put it out of its misery.

if you consider the ideal of an INTP - someone who has original ideas based on reason - this forum shows how fucking far from the ideal we are lol. There are a couple though

New people walking the same path thinking it's new.

But for me, Im kind of reduced to reading the back cover of the book and thinking I know how it's going to end.

Why we don't have any new immigrants? Probably because people go were the party is. Or maybe the food isn't spicy enough.

INTP generally do not like forums where they cannot discuss logical things. To the INTP an MBTI form is just boreing. They'd rather create systems than share knowledge. Unless they are really into MBTI which is more an ENTP thing they think of logical structures they can improve and make their own (Ti). Very independent they don't need others to validate their ideas or improve them. Really the Ti function is sufficient for them. Ti is a judgment function. Perceivers take in information and it settles in them. Judgment tests/decides. So the INTP will only confirm through Fe what people think f the logic structure Ti came up with and guide that to a societal goal. recruitment. Ne is why ENTP love debates because it creates new information they can absorb and deconstruct (Ti). Ne in the INTP is dedicated to a Ti model. The model is built until more information is needed. Then Ne s selective in what is needed to expand the model. ENTP absorbs more than spending time building models. Ti is in service of Ne trying to expand information gathering open-ended. ENTP love forums.
