This is a discussion on Confessions of an INTP within the INTP Forum - The Thinkers forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; @ Peripheral...
Is it possible to be an INTP and be totally bored by and uninterested in discussions and debates of "deep" topics such as philosophy? Because ugh.
The one & only philosophy class I ever signed up for was being taught in an experimental way by a team of 5 PhD's of Philosophy. After 5 fricking class hours in which I had to endure all 5 of these beat nick homeless lost looking PhDs who then collectively boiled it all down to "I think therefore I am" I said I am the FUCK out of here! Dropped it & never looked back!
Definitions of philosophy on the Web:
* doctrine: a belief (or system of beliefs) accepted as authoritative by some group or school
* the rational investigation of questions about existence and knowledge and ethics
* any personal belief about how to live or how to deal with a situation; "self-indulgence was his only philosophy"; "my father's philosophy of child-rearing was to let mother do it"
Philosophy!!??!! I know for me as a hardcore INTP my whole life is philosophy!! Philosophy is grinding in my head 24/7.
Philosophy class? I don't need no stinking Philosophy class!!!
Hey doctor! How about you take a seat & I teach this here MoFo 101.
How about I drop some my self created knowledge on your hippy, beatnik, lost, sloppy ass, philosophy HEAD!
If fear is self imposed, and you are freaking out, you have probably not lived long enough yet to know true fear.
Is it possible to be an ESFP and take such topics seriously? I mean, really?!
The only reason I haven't deleted my facebook account is because it's my only link I have to a lovely INTP girl who I should have been friends with in high school.
I regret not getting to know her better. It's the only regret I've ever had.
