You come across something fascinating and emerge 7 hours later, looking mildly confused.
Anonymous asked: I'm definitely an INTP, but I've been told by several (mostly F) friends that I can't be INTP because I never seem to come across as cold or unfriendly and I have a good understanding of emotions. Is this common at all? I've always thought that my Ti was very strong and pretty obvious, is it possible to be an INTP with well-developed Fe?
The thing with MBTI is that it works on a best-fit sort of structure as a way to describe people. In my opinion, there isn’t anything which “type X never does.”
It’s true that a lot of INTPs can come off as cold or stiff, but not always true!
If you’re an INTP you, by definition, have inferior Fe. However, this doesn’t mean that you haven’t been able to learn how to harness it.
For example, this INTP works with people and does quite a good job!
You should never feel confined or restrained by your type. However, if you personally feel a disconnect with the research you’ve done on your type, perhaps other types can describe you better.
tl;dr It’s totally possible. You’re an individual far more than you’re a type. If you identify strongly with a type, chances are that it’s a totally useful structure with which to analyse yourself.
Can’t people just be straightforward about relationships? Flirting is such an effort!

We’ll have something special for it when life calms down a bit.
I’m truly honoured that you guys find a connection to people like you through this tumblr.
You definitely have feelings. They just stay in a lot of the time!
majorhavic asked: I just wanna say, that I've never seen a blog with a more realistic analysis of an intp. Most are poser blogs that romanticize our thinking and make us out as emotionless robots. So thanks for being realistic! :)
thank you! :)
I don’t know if others are “poser blogs” — they often post information which is relevant to them or to the people who submit.
I tend to be really picky about which submissions I publish, because I don’t feel comfortable posting something I don’t relate to as an INTP. But every person is different, and I’m sure there are traits which are common to INTP’s which I don’t relate to and don’t post. I feel sort of bad about that.
(That being said, INTP Confessions seems to post loads of confessions from self-identified INTPs without censoring/changing too much. So that’s good.)
Anonymous asked: This blog is perfect. I can relate to nearly all of these. Thanks!
^-^ glad to be relateable.
