Being a straight, male ENTJ, I've come to understand that I'm best paired with an INTP. Given that I tend to enjoy meaningful, thoughtful conversation, I tend to agree. Though, it feels like looking for Nessy at times. Any thoughts on this pairing, and are there any alternatives you might suggest?

Well I wouldn’t limit yourself to certain personality types. I would recommend just going about your business and doing what you enjoy and perhaps you will find the evasive INTP female.

NT women can be tough to find outside the internet :P It seems like a lot of us develop strong chameleon abilities because society being society, so we may be hard to spot at first glance. Although a good way to spot one is if you suddenly see someone who is typically uninterested in everyday conversation light up and ramble on about a subject in a somewhat nerdy manner. This will often surprise most people if they only have a shallow relationship with them and many people may regret letting the genie of thought out of the bottle once we get rolling.

Who else can’t seem to stop shaking their leg?

That is called ‘Restless-Leg-Syndrome’. People who have it tend to sleep worse and suffer from depression.

oh

this is the stupidest post i’ve ever seen in my entire life 

Try to teach and not degrade.  RLS:unpleasant feelings in the legs not shaking leg for no reason. The depression part is correct

4 for you sixpenceee, you go sixpenceee

I shake my leg when I am getting impatient or just need a little jolt of energy. It kind of wakes me up a bit. I think it is a useful when you are getting drained studying something boring or are sitting on a plane/ confined space.

A fun question here. If you could choose any set of personality out of the 16, which would it be? Thank you ;)

I’m happy with who I am :) I’d rather focus on being me and using type for personal growth and better understanding and connecting with others.

I made some tests [more than 5 I guess because I'm kind obsessed with this thing] and they all say I'm an INTP type but all websites portrait INTP's as science genius and I'm clearly not a math/physic person and I'm certainly not a genius. How's that possible?

While INTPs have among the highest average IQs, this isn’t necessarily the case. Many INTPs struggle in the academic system because it is designed more for SJs (because they are the majority). This may prevent INTPs from developing their intellectual potential or make them lack confidence in themselves (we are often very self-doubting). Other factors can also come into play such as nutrition, physical activity, sleep and emotional health which can all impact your ability to think.

INTPs have a diverse amount of interests. It really just depends on the individual and what catches your mind. 

Most of the descriptions are overly stereotyped and don’t really get down to the essence of the type. However, inquisitiveness is often one of the defining traits of INTPs.

I recommend checking out personalityjunkie.com. It is very informative on the theory and could help you get better clarity on your type.

When I’m really interested in a subject but have no one to talk to I pretend I’m having a debate with someone in my head. I’m completely serious. I literally imagine me and another person in a room discussing topics.

I do this too. I wonder if the other person helps us access our subconscious mind or something. Since our ego is only aware of some functions, maybe creating archetypes/ imaginary debaters helps us access the less conscious aspects of our mind. Or maybe we are both just crazy :P

Schizophrenia or subconscious. So very hard to decide.

I actually think schizophrenia could be having repressed parts of yourself/ subconscious mind or even the collective unconscious take over and become conscious. However, this would occur when they are unbalanced and under a lot of stress. It actually sounds similar to some spiritual awakenings/ other experiences (however that usually occurs to well-balanced people who have been practicing yoga/meditation for years and knew what they were getting into).

INTP Problem #106

Emotional Barking:

Emotional barking is when people become emotionally impulsive and in the heat of a fight-or-flight response (usually fight) they start throwing out all this incoherent jibber jabber. This often occurs when a deeply held value is forced into question and they cannot handle anything that would contradict their positioning. They often do not have anything to back up their opinions and many times this is something that became a part of their belief system as a result of social conditioning. Because the perceived threat of their beliefs being wrong is so severe, their instinctive automatic survival responses will initiate. 

Emotional barking is not the same thing as using emotion, ethics and morals as an argument. Those can be well-reasoned and are certainly something to factor into anything involving people.

Emotional barking is basically using the response that is supposed to be saved for actual emergencies such as being chased by a bear, house fires or breaking a nail for less threatening situations.

Emotional barking is highly contagious and the moment you see a sign of outbreak, dash away like a ninja until it dissipates. Ways to prevent emotional barking are being open to being wrong, questioning everything, being a balanced person and getting over yourself.

One of the most frequent occurrences of emotional barking is when religious organizations and/or their army of skanks  dedicated members try to impose their beliefs on others in a political setting.
