ah, yes intp. devin, my boyfriend of two years is an intp. also my sister is. prepare for a long post.
positive experiences: idk there is something about intp’s that is really intriguing. their mind is so complex and i think that’s only something you notice when you’re really close to an intp. otherwise they probably just look like really confused people. but seriously, there is always something going on up there and i just want to dive into their mind and figure it out! also, they’re really innovative? i love how inventive devin is, like he is always the first to come up with a solution to a problem. i’m always just sitting there like ??? and he just dives in and starts testing things out and ends up finding a really innovative way of fixing the problem. also, he always brings reason to my irrational feelings. like i let my emotions get out of control sometimes and he is always there to bring me back and rationalize with me. also, they’re so damn chill like we can have low key hang outs and they’re chill or we can go do something fun and they’re chill like they just like everything. oh, and the intp’s i know are all nerdy. and i fucking love it.
negative experiences: they’re brutally honest most of the time, and i’m easily affected by everything, so sometimes it’s hard for devin and i. like he likes to just joke around without it meaning anything, but i’m too sensitive sometimes. also, i want to figure out what’s going on in his head (because i’m intrigued or i want to help!!!), but he can’t always vocalize it. he needs to THINK about his feelings and that is just a completely foreign concept to me. like i already know what my feelings are the moment i’m feeling them, but apparently it’s pretty common, esp in intp’s to have to take time to think through your emotions.
what we usually talk about/do: whatever we want. we seriously are both so chill that it’s like “so what do you wanna do? i dunno, what do you wanna do….. i dunno..” they’re always up for new experiences (me too!!) so if i have an idea (bc i’m usually the spontaneous one), then i’ll bring it up and we usually go do it. and sometimes were both just like really lazy and want to do nothing but lay in bed so we do that too. we usually talk about pretty much anything also.
ps i got asked to do intp literally four times there must be a lot of intp’s on here
