INTPs are like metal
Another comparison! See if this makes sense
I like to say that high Ne-users are metallic beings, like how XNXPs can get super “heated up” on random things, obsessions, etc. one moment, but the next day they can be completely disinterested after the initial “high” wears off. This is typically normal, and everyone does this, but it seems for INTPs and ENTPs that this occurs in such a rapid fashion that it can seem like “everything bores them”. Similarly, metal is a conductor and has a low specific heat, which not only allows it to quickly increase in temperature but also quickly decrease in temperature.
