    I Am The Creater Of This Group

    I am the creator of the group. I am very nervous about saying that, but it is true. I am no big genius. I lead with my head. It's funny, the time I return to the group is when I am in a panic.

    The Truth about INTPs,

    taken from intpexperience.com. INTPs feel emotion very intensely, even if you don’t think they show it. In fact, emotion for an INTP is primal and pure. Almost naïve. And they are afraid of it. That’s why they learn to suppress it, withdraw from it, and safely pack...

    Intp's Do It Quietly..

    The Myers-Briggs test was revealing. And each time that I've done it, I come up with a strong 'T', which makes sense, given how my brain won't shut up. I: Introverted? Yes, though I have learned to mask it. Can't be a teacher without the mask. No wonder I feel exhausted a lot...

    So I'm an INTP? I'm pretty skeptical about

    That's according to some stupid website test.
