    Thought Transfer

    Communication can be very frustrating for me. In my head i can come up with something amusing/witty to say but upon delivery, it falls short of expectation due to my non-expressive nature of verbal delivery. I also have trouble trying to convert scrambled intangible thoughts and...

    I guess this is a very INTP thing to do,

    but I thought I'd try to list all of the "You know you're an INTP when..." lines off http://thatintp.tumblr.com reproduced here with typoes and repeats and all even though, I feel little less than half of them might apply to me and in most cases to many people in general...

    Severely Intp

    I have taken several versions of this test over 13 years and have scored INTP every time. The one that claimed to be Keirsey's official test gave me a percentile for each function: 97th %ile Introverted, 99th %ile iNtuitive, 91st %ile Thinking, and 99th %ile Perceiving. Classic...

    I'm terrific at giving advice,

    but it's not because I am particularly sympathetic--though, in fact, I am--but because I take apart problems to see where the real issue lies, not what the perceived problem is. It makes people feel better; almost always, our anxieties make our plights seem worse. Everyone...

    Mistyped Intps.

    It seems a lot of 'INTPs' here are possibly mistyped. There is a fair amount of over sensitive feeling, trying to hide behind the stereotypical INTP characteristics. I think some should re evaluate their type and retake the test.

    I Wonder What Fears Are Common To The Intp...

    I, personally, am afraid of being annoying. This prevents me from saying or doing a lot of things. I am trying to overcome this by taking a few risks and gradually step out of my comfort zone. The problem is, though, I don't see much progress and I feel I may be slipping back...

    Do other INTPs have a hard time sleeping?

    I rarely ever sleep, always over thinking, especially when i am going through an obsessive learning mode, i know 2 other INTPs who also don't sleep much, just wondering if its another trait of ours haha

    You Say Hopeless Like It's A Bad Thing.

    I wouldn't want to be anything but.  I love that I'm rare, and I love that I'm needed. I will admit that there are times when I've hidden just how lovely my INTP self is, but hey, if it makes a Feeler more comfortable...Just the same, I am as happy as an INTP girl gets.

    I just realized there's a group for us goof-balls!  Not surprised there's so few of us though.  What are we, about 1-2% of the population? Hope everybody is having a good day!

    The Female Intp In An Unnatural Habitat

    I'm proud of being INTP, but I try not to show it.  I'm married to a Feeling type and it would hurt him if I got to excited about it, I think.
