Definitely; though my jail is always changing. 

Marni (not verified) says...

Yes. Everyday that I walk into work I am in prison. Yes. Yes. 

Rae says...

always.

Constantly. Especially right now where my job is like a prison, gruelling work with little mental stimulation and the people that I have to be around are simply bothersome and annoying. I am not a fan of people and at the end of the day, I wish the Apocalypse would just happen already. 

Ailius (not verified) says...

Yes, same here.

Fhasawi says...

It does feel like a jail cell but I always use my imagination to comfert me. Infact it helped me going through my college time with success. 

Niens (not verified) says...

I am always wanting more. I want to do something significant that matters. I feel caged in a meaningless career.

My waking reality. I am in a skin suit prison, (im)patiently waiting to break free of the constraints of this physical world so my concious mind can ascend and frolick among the profound as it should for all time. Until I come back. Probably as a sea slug. Or something.

Far more often than not.

Yes, I agree, a feeling of imprisonment from society and even imprisonment from our own creativity and intelligent minds. People don't always understand, and the burden is that we will have to accept that.

I actually feel imprisoned but often find ways to distract myself to any other things, either is a new task to do, out just a big puzzle, been struggling alone in a 2000 pieces puzzle doing it alone has been an amazing experience, my mind just doesn't feel like it usually feels, I feel occupied and thought not actually being something good for society it feels like I am doing something gpgo, I must say, doing it alone in a house full of people just makes me feel like I'm alone in a world that I have never been in.

As probably one of a few intp that has been to jail, I feel more in hell when around quite a few family members who annoy me more than anything, but jail sucked too.  But a delinquent and a rebel without a cause.  If it's super funny I say it even if it's totally weird.  And then I say the smartest and dumbest shit at the same time.  Everone thinks I dont listen and keeps repeating themselves which is super aggravating.  But this shit ain't worth nothing with no direction

Yes, been an introvert all my life and have struggled in society all my life. I found it highly difficult with marketing and promoting my writing which is essential for my passion to become my job but for now, I'm stuck in dead-end labor where I'll never be understood. Im trying my best to make that switch by mastering the craft no matter what.it takes.

INTPs have been known to go to extremes to acheive solitude, and I found it interesting that some commenters are saying they might prefer a cell to a noisome family environment. When your mind is all you need, that can feel tempting. But we have phases, and eventually crave social interaction. I relate to the feeling of being in prison, especially when surrounded by family. Our challenge is to figure this all out, rather than running for the hills. I also relate to feeling imprisoned by my body, socety, reality, etc. There is hope for freedom, though. We need to pick a purpose and put our minds to it -- that becomes a freedom. We can becoem trapped by meaningless as well... a conclusion any very smart person is likely to come to. The secret is we make our own meaning, our own purpose. Nietzsche said it best: it doesn't matter what the value is, what matters is you pursue it.
