The INTP at Work

At work, the INTP is motivated to solve complex problems in an original, innovative way. Architects want to analyze systems and ideas thoroughly to create deep understanding, and enjoy designing creative solutions to highly abstract problems.

INTPs rarely have much interest in organizational traditions, preferring to forge their own path to innovation. They hate being limited by bureaucracy and rules, and are often more in tune with the theoretical soundness of their ideas than they are with the practical applications. They typically prefer to focus on creating the idea, and to leave the tedious details of implementation to someone else.

INTPs work best independently or with a small team of colleagues that they perceive as smart, competent, and logical. They quickly tire of colleagues who are aggressive or overbearing, and can be dismissive of people who aren't as clever as themselves.

An ideal organization for an INTP is flexible and non-traditional, and values ingenuity over conformity. An ideal job for an INTP allows them to address complex theoretical or technical problems with creative, novel solutions.

Top Careers for the INTP

INTPs are first and foremost thinkers, and this quality can be seen in their choice of careers. Although INTPs can be found in a wide variety of fields, a happy and satisfied INTP is invariably found in a career that allows them to use their intellect, analyze concepts, and think deeply.

INTPs have an innovative nature and are often drawn to cutting-edge fields such as technology, engineering, and the sciences. Although INTPs overall are a rare breed, visit an area like California's Silicon Valley or a tech company like Google or Apple and you'll find that nearly every other person seems to be an INTP. This type naturally thrives in the challenging, unpredictable world of tech.

Many INTPs are creative and seek an artistic bent to their career. INTPs are particularly drawn to artistic fields with a touch of science or technology, for instance architecture or graphic design.

Although INTPs typically prefer careers that have them working with ideas more than people, a contingent of INTPs consider human problems the ultimate frontier of intellectual inquiry. Thus, you find some INTPs in careers that allow them to study the human experience, including psychology and other social sciences.

Top careers for the INTP include:

Technology

Technology is a highly attractive field for INTPs, and many INTPs are drawn to computers from a very young age. Even INTPs who do not work in tech fields typically nurse an interest in computers on the side. Working with technology allows INTPs to exercise their reasoning skills in perfect concert with their creativity and desire to experiment and innovate. Some INTPs even say they understand computers better than they understand other people!

Most any career in computers or technology can be considered a possibility for the INTP, but some sample tech careers for INTPs include:

Engineering

Engineering careers are a good fit for the logical, analytical thinking style of the INTP. They particularly enjoy engineering fields that allow them to exercise a measure of creativity in their work. Some sample engineering careers for INTPs include:

Sciences

Scientific careers are a natural choice for INTPs. They enjoy all aspects of the sciences: the opportunity to build specialized knowledge in their field of choice; the ability to focus at length on complex, abstract ideas; and most of all, the exploratory process of scientific experimentation. Some sample science careers for INTPs include:

Business and Law

Both business and law careers can make good use of the INTP's analytical instincts. Good business careers for INTPs often stimulate their interest in complex theories, including advanced mathematics. Some sample business and law careers for INTPs include:

Arts and Language

Some INTPs focus on their creative instincts with a career in the arts. Typically, though, even an INTP working in an artistic field finds a way to use their analytical side in their work. Some sample artistic careers for INTPs include:

INTP Careers to Avoid

It is important to note that any personality type can be successful in any occupation. However, some occupations are well suited to the natural talents and preferred work style of the INTP, while other occupations demand modes of thinking and behavior that do not come as naturally to this type. Occupations that require the INTP to operate outside their natural preferences may prove stressful or draining, and often sound unappealing to Architects who are choosing a career.

The following occupations have been found to be unpopular among INTPs, based on data gathered from surveys of the general population.

The INTP on a Team

INTPs are thoughtful, analytical team members who contribute a deep understanding of complex problems. They are often most interested in the theoretical questions behind the team’s goal, and can help the group to identify key principles and generate innovative ideas. They tend to engage with the vision of the team, analyzing it rationally and objectively and offering options and possibilities.

INTPs do best on a team when they are given freedom to analyze logical problems in an original way. They are skilled at coming up with creative solutions, but don’t put much stock in the established way of doing things. Team members who are highly loyal to tradition may encounter friction with the INTP. Architects are typically independent thinkers who’d rather debate ideas than make small talk. They may become impatient if too much time is spent on pleasantries, and may put off team members who seek a more personal touch.

The INTP as a Leader

In leadership positions, INTPs inspire others with their intelligence and innovative ideas. INTP leaders are often unassuming on the surface but catch everyone's attention once they begin talking about their ideas. They generally allow their reports a lot of latitude, preferring to set the overall goal and trust their team to solve problems autonomously.

INTPs enjoy exploring new possibilities and engaging in creative problem solving, but may sometimes get so caught up in the world of ideas that they neglect to lead their teams into action. They may have trouble hashing out details, and often leave it to someone else to create exact specifications. They do best leading competent, intellectually driven teams who understand their complex ideas and can fill in the details to create realistic plans of action.

Any pointers on how to pick a career and stick with it? I get excited about stuff and I'm always left disillusioned!

The person who said hi (not verified) says...

Lol, when it said we don't usually get good grades I was like, duh because the stuff they teach you in school is bullshit knowledge.

rebel (not verified) says...

it's not all bullshit knowledge though.. i mean, a lot of the stuff is actually interesting but school just sucks the joy out of it. i'm saying this cause, i found almost all subjects boring when i was in school but if there's a video on something related to that subject, i am usually genuinely interested and receive it quite positively. moreover, they just make us vomit whatever is written in the textbooks onto the paper; instead of encouraging us to question stuff and analyse everything which makes everything boring and dull.

i usually enjoy learning anything but school just sucks the fun out by how they teach us the material 

Marissa (not verified) says...

I took this test years ago.  My result was INFP.  I took it again months ago and turned out to be INTP.  I read both personalities. INTP described me more than INFP.

A kid (not verified) says...

Same, I took the test a few months ago and I got infp, and now I got intp

Observer (not verified) says...

It's hard for me to believe that I'm an INTP, they are considered, "very intelligent" or something like that. But I struggle with math and science, even simple division and multiplication. This has led me to believe I'm quiet the oppisite of intelligent. I know dumb INTPs exist, but it feels like a waste of potential if my IQ was below average.

why are you here if you're going to be rude to people for talking about personality types

American Man (not verified) says...

I've always scored INTP but I hate their career suggestions. I just want to fish all day, read history books, and kill beers at night in a trailer in the great plains. I'm not against art as a hobby, but I don't want to be an artist. I might have to find a monastery.

Lizziy (not verified) says...

I couldn't agree more with you as an intp woman expect for the drinking part. 

Rockymountainhigherthanu (not verified) says...

I scored INTP and ascetic life has always appealed to me as well. Also, can I come fish and talk about history and drink beer with you? I might ask that we go out on the boat under a starry sky too if you're inclined.

That Girl (not verified) says...

If that's what you want to do, I would say do it. Get an unconventional job that would allow you to do that in the Great Plains. Farmer? Open an indoor mountain climbing store nearby? INTPs aren't meant to keep regular hours. It's part of the personality. 

JayL (not verified) says...

Don't be giving up. The secret sauce to us INTP's to go after anything we want in life is; we must be Passionate, we must be Optimistic, our dream(s) needs to be Practical, and we have to set Goals to achieve our dream(s).  P.O.P.G.

I wish Truity didn't include famous people who supposedly fall under a certain M-B type. The test is a self-assessment, so people who lived well before the test existed obviously couldn't have taken it, and most of those who did take it probably didn't share the results with Truity. It's misleading.

Guest (not verified) says...

true

Guest (not verified) says...

Off course the dead didn't take the test.

They are made through assumptions.

Its not impossible to guess because famous persons almost always have detailed biographies and some of them like da vinci even kept private journals. 

Karen Claire T. (not verified) says...

I took the test, but it shows INTJ. But I am not it. Then I check INTP personality, I then realized I am this. I am happy to know the information about INTP. Because I'd like to know and understand more myself. Also, to understand what I really like doing. You see, I find it hard to know what I really want because the next thing I know, its not really I want. Now, that I know this personality it now make sense why I don't like doing those kind of things. 

BizB (not verified) says...

When I was younger I got INTP as a result and I felt it accurately matched my personality. I've retaken the test several times since then and got INTJ, INFJ respectively. I have been through dramatic environment changes so it makes sense that I would adapt. However, I still feel that INTP is who I am at my core. The other types just show that I developed some of my weaker functions.

Paul Fodor (not verified) says...

Hey Karen. I think a lot of us INTP will understand you. It's normal for INTP to score as INTJ, and actually at times INTP act as INTJ. The reverse is also true, INTJ may score and act as INTP sometimes (although less commonly I think). There's some overlap between the two. But yeah, once an INTx understands the difference, they usually figure out which one they are. So paradoxically the fact that you scored INTJ, didn't feel like it and realized you're INTP confirms you're INTP!

Tony McLeod (not verified) says...

Hi guys. I've done the test twice and came up INTP both times. My P / J was also very close each time, with P just coming out in front. T was off the scale! I'm still a bit iffy about this one. 

David Highley (not verified) says...

I recently found out i am an INTP personality type. This took me by surprise when i saw the population of people that are this type. It all fit exactly. It helped me come to terms with some things about myself i had previously questioned and even felt disdain towards. I just hope my personality doesn’t affect my daughter as i will be a little nore withdrawn than she deserves. Its a good thing my fiancé is a very emotional type person and can be more attuned to my daughters feelings when she needs it. 

Its truly relieveing to know a bit more about myself and why i am the way i am as i have been trying to figure myself out more than anything but to no avail. i have only improved shortcomings by doing so. 

That is one more ongoing question i finally have the answer to. 

BizB (not verified) says...

I totally feel you. I also felt disdain for some of my traits as an INTP but now I realize that we have super powers that others do not possess. You should be proud of who you are. 

Maria E. (not verified) says...

I have recently just taken the test and discovered I am, in fact, an INTP. Reading all of these comments is so deeply satisfying to know that I am not alone. As this article states, INTPs often feel alone because of how rare their personality is. I am honored to be one of the select few in the INTP community, but sometimes it feels like more of a curse than a blessing. I have always known myself to be a highly technical person. I am terrible at handling people around me being emotional. I love to discuss philosophy and have spent hours of every day of my life think about my existence, more specifically, my meaning. As you can likely tell, I am very much a logician. At times, I love that about myself. I love how I can be content with nothing but a room to think in. I am content being alone, or rather, I prefer it. However, it is difficult to reason with this. As a current high schooler, I find it so troubling to see that people are out partying and having fun. I have no desire to do that, but I fall into a pit of sadness about it. I get angry about the fact that I am an introvert and not experiencing life. It has taken me a while, but I have come to realize that I am experiencing life, just not their life. To further explain, I am content with my kind of life, and although I may be sad that I am not doing normal teenage things, I know that I am experiencing the life I want to live. 

Another thing I wanted to mention was how wrapped up in projects logicians can get. I sew as a hobby and I find that when I begin projects, I hardly stop. I am so focused on the end goal, I forget to eat meals, talk to people, and clean up. I don't quite see this as a problem but some members of my family do. They make fun of me for being cooped up in my room all day, but to be quite honest, I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Finally, I wanted to address the notion that Logicians are "misunderstood." All through middle school, I never felt fully connected with the people around me. Even in high school, it is difficult for me. I fear for college. Even my own family tells me about how weird and strange I am. I know that I may come off this way, but I also think they don't understand me. I am apart of a family of extroverts so, obviously, they find it difficult to understand me. I love playing strategy games with them and even play my own logic puzzles instead of mindlessly scrolling the discover page on Instagram. I sure am going on a tangent, but all I really want to say is: I feel heard. For many years of my life, I wondered what was so impossibly wrong with me, and even now I question myself. But, reading these people's stories helped me understand, I am not alone. I am not the only one who is struggling. I appreciate each and every one of you who has made me feel apart of something. 

Preeths (not verified) says...

Even I am INTP ..I know it's hard but I get on your point....it's a curse more than a blessing but that's what makes us special

JayL (not verified) says...

Yes, my family has also thought I was strange. I'm 38 and have been searching for my inner self for about 2 years now. I “think” I am officially labeled as the black sheep of my family, so I feel ya. My early weirdness took me down a dark path when I was younger and I started partying alot, but I was a loner partier. I would make random friends as I was drinking at random bars and clubs, but I never really took to any friendships or girlfriends from it. Anyways, as I grew up, I was really good at several things throughout life and I think my family really grew jealous of this. I believe family’s with INTP’s grow jealous because we have wild ideas and killer capabilities that are F-ing great. My family saw that I could spend a little amount of time learning something that I was interested at that time and get decent to pretty good at it quickly. The thing about it was the stuff I was good at may or may not have been practical in their eyes. but I had dreams. I think I learned the secret to INTP’s success in life. To go after anything you want in life, you must be Passionate, you must be Optimistic, the dream needs to be Practical, and you have to set Goals to achieve the dream.  P.O.P.G.

KK Law (not verified) says...

I appreciate your thoughts. I am an ENFP and I am in a house full of introverts. They are much more interesting than the kids out partying. My youngest is 17 and she is an INTP and very smart. So glad I am familiar with the personality types so I can fully appreciate all my girls and my husband. When you get to college you should try to make a few friends if not for yourself then for them. People will be blessed to know you.

JSteph (not verified) says...

Oh the rambling, extroverted intuitive conversations that ENFPs and INTPs can share! Make sure your INTP hears your stories, quotes, and wisdom. They can totally get onboard with that. Also for your INTP, make sure to be that positive encourager from time to time: you and they might not know how much they need it until it happens. As an INTP who had an ENFP as a barista for several years, I know from experience.

Ted D. (not verified) says...

A little late Maria, but wanted to give my 2 cents on this. I am an INTP as well, and have definitely what you feel in regards to being more than content to spend hours alone and contemplating deep topics. What troubled me was that you said how it troubled you to see other people partying and having. I'm glad that you said you are coming to terms and understanding yourself more, but here's my take on it.

I've found that many INTP types, upon understanding themselves to fit this paradigm of a mysterious, introverted genius, mistakenly pigeonhole themselves into this identity. They embrace this identity as the intelligent hermit and shun the outside world. While I don't if this is the case with you, I urge you to try and escape your comfort zone. Remember that these types are not formulas for how to live our lives, but rather a foundation. I didn't party in high school either, but in college I was able to come out of my bubble and enjoy my years while maintaining strong grades.

I guess what I'm trying to say is although you've become content with the life you live, try and explore and live a bit as an extrovert. Just as you've found a wonderful world in your imagination as an introvert, there's an equally beautiful and exciting world out there for you to conquer with your mind as well. Throughout my years I've been able to flip the switch and turn my I into an E when necessary, and I think we all owe it to ourselves to be able to switch between both.

I wanted to share my thoughts with Marie E 😘 you are not alone , I too can start a sewing project , Spend hours cooped up in the room , until I finish that project , and will skip meals and ignore Family when I'm working on something.  please don't feel that you are odd or different , everyone must explore and live their world as they see fit. I was very different than the rest of my family,  I eventually did go on to college,  have kids ,get married , etc. but still found that no matter what I was doing , I was happier doing things by myself !

'just you do you '   as they say !

Advice Anyone? (not verified) says...

I’m 19 and about to go to college. And I took this test to just see (I got distracted, I was looking for personality and behaviors for a story) my own results. I can’t help ,but feel relieved that I’m not the only one with procrastination problems. I’m still in high school due to my procrastination (it’s a huge problem) and now I have 2-3 classes left (I’m home schooled, I had a problem with authority and the classes were too boring, with Home Schooling I had more stimulation and actually understood a big deal of things), which I hope I get a sudden bout of motivation and finish them soon. I just want to know, is College worth it? I want a lot of opinions, cause I don’t want to waste much of mine or anyone else’s time paying for classes that will just end up with me hating myself for more mental torture. (I feel like I sound whiny, is that bad?)

Get your degree, because unless you have a lot of money, you  will be forced to work for people who have no clue. You will be underpaid, misunderstood, and very frusrtated. You will be able to see the flaws in organizational systems wherever you work; however, no one will listen to you since you have no degree and no time in the company. You will continue to change jobs because you learn everything so quickly and get bored. At least that was my life until recently. 

Advice: Figure out one thing you love more than others and stick with it. You might get a little bored but life is always ready to throw us a curveball. You have to stop trying to know everything. Just pick what you want most for a career, and keep your hobbies. Hope this helps.

Definitely sound advice from where I'm standing. Thanks for the wisdom my guy.

Meghan P (not verified) says...

So funny... I did the exact same thing. I was homeschooled for almost the same reasons you were while my siblings continued public school! 

I went to college and got a chemistry degree. I will say, I had a lot of trouble managing school and life... BUT get into research if you can. I feel pretty at home among other scientists. I love problem solving and delving into the details of theory. It's just the practical management aspects that I have trouble with. 

Guest (not verified) says...

If you are going to college I would highly suggest an online platform. I had a hard time in school as well.

The lee (not verified) says...

Oh good you found your excuse for your procrastination. Was that it?

Dont just take a small part of being INTP and be happy that you are not the only procrastinating.

Look at the otherside. Find your thing that makes you enthusiastic. Is college worth? I dont know it totally depends what you wanna do with it. You wanna be a doctor? Yes you need to go to college. You wanna be a youtuber? Then No or maybe. 

So dont force yourself to live the normal successful life without knowing your version of successful life. Find out what you like, and if it requires going to college then go otherwise dont go.

Caleb K (not verified) says...

College sometimes is worth it but not for everyone. There are a decent amount of jobs that want a degree regardless of what it is so that is one possible reason to go. If wanting to be cost-conscious I would recommend going a couple years to community college. This can save you tens of thousands of dollars with a similar quality of education. I would say consider a trade school as well since there are very well-paying jobs in blue collar fields. Often these jobs are always hiring with not enough qualified people for all the jobs. Good luck!

robert friedl (not verified) says...

Consider the military or trade school. You can stay debt free without worrying if you made the right choice of degree. College should not be the only option and is not, it is just seen that way these days. You can make a killing doing a trade and you can always decide to go back to school. Personally I joined the military so i could have a bit more time to decide what i want to study.

That's funny, I too ended up on this page because I got distracted while trying to develop characters for a story. 

I've done a lot of introspection over the years and while I'm about to write you an essay on my own experiences in college with an INTP personality, it is worth it if it saves you time and pain over the next few years of your life. 

Procrastination has been a lifelong battle for me; it's always incredibly difficult to focus on monotonous schoolwork when there is something much more mentally stimulating and interesting to be thinking about or doing. 

Is college worth it? That depends on what you want out of it. Our society uses college as an acredidation system. You may be a genius, but nobody will give you the time of day if you don't have the prerequisite degree for the job you're interested in. In other words, in certain careers there is no way to avoid attending college. 

So if you want to become a software engineer (like me), scientist, or something else of that sort, you pretty much have no choice but to attend college and get that degree. 

If your career does not require a college degree, then I think it would be best for you to take that path. 

I'll share briefly what I've gone through: I graduated high school with a good GPA and 6 finished AP courses, which I expected would knock at least one semester off of my college career. I attended a prestigious college in the University of California system, but I was so burnt out from taking 5 AP classes in my senior year (plus a normal class) that I was unable to focus on college level coursework. I had always had trouble making friends, but had always assumed that college would be great since that's where smart people go. Being an INTP type, I thought this would mean I could finally be surrounded by people who think like I do. 

Oh boy, was I wrong. 

I did not meet a single person at college who thought like I did and, simply put, I met not one person with similar interests. That led to a feeling of isolation and finally depression, and I ended up on academic probation at the end of my first year there. I did not want to quit college, but could not bring myself to continue at that university. 

As a result, I left and attended community college for several years and eventually transfered to another university. The problems I ran into in my first year of college have plagued me ever since, and while I am already 25, I am still finishing my bachelors' degree. I will get there, though. 

If you want my advice- do college if you think you can, but you must absolutely avoid the mistakes I made and find yourself either a group of friends or at least an online community with which you can spend time and relieve stress. Being INTPs, we can easily get stuck in our own heads, get depressed, and get distracted. Our tendency to constantly look back on our own failures and harbor regrets leads to more depression and more failure, forming a self-perpetuating cycle which is hard to break out of. 

I almost succeeded in that last semester: I got involved with a political group on campus (if you can't find a group which shares your intellectual interests, at least find one which shares your political interests and values), I got involved with a fencing group off-campus, and I convinced myself to be confident- I was finally about to graduate. Then- COVID. It feels a little like Zeus hurled a lightning bolt through my life. 

If you can get yourself there, that confidence will keep you going strong and really accentuate the postitive aspects of your INTP personality. Despite our shortcomings in consistent deliverables (ie, homework), we can be great workers. I am on my second internship with one of the biggest companies in software, which would lead into what many would consider a dream job. 

Keep at it, and you will get where you want to be. It might just take a little longer than you expect. 

That Girl (not verified) says...

I am also 25 and an INTP. And i related to this post so much. I dont think I've ever met anyone who thought like I do. This had lead me to only have a few friends and no lovers. I try dating. But everytime, I talk to them for 10 mins and realize they have nothing real to say. I get so bored. I ghost so many dates because I think they are boring. I want to sit there and discuss everything you can think of. So making friends and stuff is hard because most people are surface level only. They don't have anything real to say. 

Alan says...

Just doodling and reading about my personality type, INTP, I tick most of the boxes.

Ill scribble a list of my traits and maybe it'll help somebody whos feeling a little disconnected from society that theyre not alone.

Id say im at the extreme end of the "personality spectrum" to the point its made my life more difficult than most, on occasion its effected my life in a negative manner. I was raised in a remote area where there was no other children nearby until I was maybe 4 years old, Im not sure to what extent this has had on my personality. 

I'm 52yrs old male, I have a small group of friends, I dont care to be around many people, I prefer the tranquillity of my own and my dogs company over people. I actually get annoyed if someone calls around unannounced - not that I tell them. I do lack people skills although its more to do with not having the desire to win people over. Im quite blunt and often unintentionally offend with my straight forward and brutally honest way of talking, not that I care much if someone does gets offended, they’ve usually chose to take offence.

At school my grades were all over the place, either near the bottom or the very top, if I had an interest I was fine, if not, I struggled to understand and made no effort. I excelled at technical subjects, art, crafts, my best was technical drawing, highest marks out of 5 classes of 30 pupils everytime. I became interested in geography around 13-14 yrs and my grades shot up from near the bottom to near the top within a year. As a young child I was very talented at drawing, animals and cars etc, not so much human faces.

I have zero tolerance for fools, bullshiters, liars, dishonesty, manipulative people (drives me nuts) shallow people, those who pimp their airbrushed fake lifestyle on social media etc

I see through the above B.S. like a hot knife through butter.

Ive been described by people close to me as cold and aloof at times- I think its a bit harsh.. but I do have a side that can be quite ruthless to those who try to cross or fool with me.

I procrastinate far too much and get too caught up in creative and business ideas.

I have a deep disdain for authority and for those in a uniform who represents it. I see them as brainwashed minions full of their own self importance. This combined with my zero respect for the laws of the land, meant I was often in trouble with the police when younger, not for anything bad, always for not abiding by or respecting some B.S. artificial and restrictive law.

My attitude was, and maybe still is, rules are for fools....

I don’t care for political correctness

I knew the bible and god was 100% B.S. at age 11 when my teacher started talking about noahs ark..I refused to do my R.E. work and had nothing to show at the end of the year! I regard anyone who follows religion and has a belief in god/ as being mentally ill, its a disease of weak minded sheople that are incapable of critical thinking.

Hero worshipping annoys me, it seems everyone in todays society needs to praise the police, firemen, nurses, soldiers "keyworkers" for just doing a job of work....not heroic in the slightest and just confirms how utterly pathetic humans have become.

At 3-4yrs I refused point blank to eat "flesh" knowing it came from a murdered animal, despite my mothers efforts at trying to disguise it and making train sounds…To eat an animal is morally repugnant to me, utterly reprehensible and hypocritical. Yet society deems it morally acceptable to kill sentient creatures for food, it’s a complete abuse of power on the voiceless. Trophy hunters are the most vile bags of excrement on earth (same level of deviance as paedos) I see them as delusional fantasists who get to legally carry out their psychopathic urges to dominate, abuse and kill innocent, defenceless and voiceless creatures.

For society to allow the above atrocities to take place ill never understand for as long as I live and why Ill NEVER be part of mainstream society.

It blows my mind how an unhinged egomaniac narcissist like trump can be in control of a supposedly advanced civilised society...

Ill end on some of what I consider to be some of my more positive INTP attributes, Im extremely principled, honest, strong minded and confident in my abilities- Ill go places and to depths others have no concept of just to achieve an end result. I strive for very high personal standards in most aspects of my life. 

I never lie to myself- EVER.

Im very creative, technical and mechanically minded, good with my hands.

I usually excel at whatever takes my interest, If it doesnt take my interest, I dont want to know about it, I cant fake it, same goes for the people I meet.

I earned a lot of $ from being self employed in business, as well as losing a lot of $ from a failed relationship. However I dont care much for materialistic possessions, health is whats important.

Ill always to great lengths to help someone out, if theyre deserving of it.

If im on youtube I usually end up watching videos of nature, wild animals, technical or engineering, Jordan Peterson, Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Nietzche, Darwin etc..

Robert Boyle, Michael Faraday, Isaac Newton, George Washington Carver, Florence Nightingale, Samuel Morse, Johannes Kepler, Galileo, Lise Meitner, Sir Francis Bacon, and countless other scientists were not weak-minded, but strong-minded Christians who, as scientists, were more than capable of critical thinking. I'm not discrediting the fact that some so-called Christians are "weak-minded." But Christianity is not a disease of the weak-minded; it's an explanation of the unexplainable in life - an answer for the void we humans all naturally have in our hearts - a resolution for the true disease we were all born with: sin. Sorry to bring this up, I know this isn't technically the place for it... but I literally could not forgo a reply to your unfounded opinion. Anyway, best wishes, and have a great day!

We could be friends. Well, if we weren't hanging out at home with the dogs. I read and I went, "yup, check, right, of course, aha..." all the way down your post.

As a fellow INTP, I relate to and agree with a lot of what you said... Talking about everyone's fake lives on social media was spot on. It's pathetic. We disagree politically.
