MBTI as Common Time-Wasters

ENFP: Talking to Siri (or even better, Cleverbot)

INFP: Taking pictures of random stuff (or just selfies)

ENFJ: Talking to yourself or having a conversation in your head

INFJ: Reading anything laying around, even a cereal box or car manual

ESTJ: Pacing around restlessly with no clear objective

ISTJ: Lists. Lots of them. Usually to-do lists and grocery lists

ESFJ: Stalking random social media accounts for no real reason

ISFJ: Solitaire, Mahjong, or some other simple game you can play on your phone

ENTJ: Watching or reading the news or watching the stock market in real time

INTJ: Getting sucked into Wikipedia or some sort of database

ENTP: Messing with RNG or making diagrams/graphs/charts of dumb stuff

INTP: Tapping and pen-clicking. The cursed, infamously irritating tapping. Do you even know you’re doing it? No, but we do and it’s awful.

ESFP: Tossing a ball or other item up in the air and then catching it, or balancing things

ISFP: Doodling and Zentangling on scratch paper (or your own skin)

ESTP: Scrolling through your explore feed on social media to find something funny

ISTP: Scrolling through Netflix without actually watching anything

Wait… Not everybody just reads what’s randomly just there?

These are all fairly common and I have done all of them at least once or witnessed others do them frequently. Not everyone, I’m sure, but it’s a pretty common thing to do out of boredom. This is just a fun post where I tried to assign these habits to an MBTI type I thought fit it best. For example, for ENTP (my type), Ne really likes random connections and possibilities, so drawing a random Venn diagram or clicking around with an RNG thing is a thing I could associate with Ne-Ti. That doesn’t mean all ENTPs do this rather than something else, nor does it mean only ENTPs would do this most often. For example, I definitely end up doing the activities listed for ISFJ and ENTJ more often. But this is just a post for fun!

this Ne mood

do any other Ne users (xNxP) ever experience this?

like when a friend or acquaintance says something like “i wish there was a thing that could do <something cool>” or “what if <something something whatever>”

and you actually start thinking about how to make something work or the possibilities surrounding the “what if” or even talking about it

even if you know it wasn’t a serious thought

like “man if we had actual sunlight in this room i might not fall asleep in class” wasn’t supposed to be an actual call for replacing the fluorescent lights with sun lamps

and “what if humans only drank human milk” wasn’t supposed to turn into a discussion about a human milk industry and how it would work

anyone else do this? it’s so unproductive but i laugh at myself for it a lot

Hey, INTJs, help an INFP out?

     What sorts of problems do INTJs have?  Specifically, INTJ women.  What sort of interpersonal trouble do they get into that other types might not?  What fears and self-doubts do they have?  What things are harder and easier for them?  Common strengths and weaknesses?  In what ways don’t you fit the INTJ mold?

     I’m an INFP, so what similarities can I tap into or what differences in thinking might surprise me?

     I’ve done a lot of research on this topic already, but it’s still not the same as getting someone’s firsthand experiences, because everyone’s experiences are going to be different and more specific than the generalizations that I find online.  (This INTJ is not the villain, btw.  She’s the main character!  Whoa!)

Other things I need help with:
-Got any ideas on how to destabilize a monarchy?
-Writing hard magic is hard.
-Writing about fantasy races?
-Common post-colonial problems?
Thank you thank you thank you for any and all help you’re able to send me.

Man you’re gonna get so many edgeladies answer that they struggle because they are too competent and intelligent, and they can’t connect to people.

As an INFP, you are used to be subtle. INTJs struggle with that, and are annoyed when they pick up that someone is trying to get something from them and not being forthright about it. This can get to a point of “I’ll make them continue their game and make it hard for them to ask-without-asking.” For example, I had a friend who wanted me to drive her places all the time, but she would text me “Aww, I missed the bus and I am late” and wait for me to offer a ride. I started to make her wait for my answer, so she’d be even more late, and then tell her something like “So sad for you!”. Yes, we are petty.

Both my INFJ female friend and I share that we don’t like people randomly telling us we’re smart. We both know our strengths and limits, and it feels… wrong(?) when someone kinda tries to be in our head. We’re not there to be praised; although it’s nice when people notice when we get things done.

INTJs don’t like to be inactive (I get so annoyed when I realize I lost time), but we need time to process things. As a protagonist, your character will face a lot, and will be stupid if not prepared. Stu-pid. We like to thing of everything and have plan A-B-C-D… but we can’t humanly think of everything. (I once read a book with an INTJ main character and the story was obviously written so he would have thought of every outcome all the time, and it didn’t feel natural.) We make mistakes, especially if we face surprising events.

Another weakness is our pride. Depending on the person, you won’t actually see it, because we like to repress so soooo much, but failing is hard, and failing twice can be enough to destabilize your character. “Maybe that means I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ll never be good at this.” Ni-Fi loop is a bitch.

There’s a lot of posts about INTJs dressing in black clothes only, and being kinda business chic, but people are people. I often wear yellow and red, and I like fun accessories. My INTJ friend has a totally transparent raincoat, and a blue sequin jacket, for example, but dresses in black and navy blue most of the time.

I’ll stop here about INTJs because I could hyperfocus on this and drown you in answers in all directions, but if you have a particular question, you can message me, or send an ask.

And about destabilizing a monarchy, how about you become the new monarchy? And then make changes. (You or someone who’s charismatic and could charm their way to the throne.)

And as a writer: maybe while writing you’ll realize your character won’t be as you planned them to be, and maybe she will change type. It’s nice than INTJs inspired you, but don’t let it stop you from developing your character in the most natural way. (I tried to create an ENFJ and he was INFP in the end, then an INTP and he became an ENTJ when I wrote him.)

Wish you the best about this book!

Ohhh yes. I’m a female ENTP but have a very close INTJ female friend, and I’m super glad that the person who responded was A. a writer B. not one of those edgy “INTJ” girls who just wanna be different and cool and special (when they’re just making a fool of themselves).

I’m kind of done with every villain or cold jerk character being immediately typed as INTJ for that sole reason, so INTJ protagonists are definitely interesting to me, and I can’t wait to see where that goes!

Personally, some struggles or general traits I’ve noticed in my INTJ friend:

1. She is concerned with her reputation and kind of secretive in group settings. When we were in high school, she sat out of a Never Have I Ever game in the flute section to avoid embarrassment, but she didn’t realize that by being the only one sitting out she ended up being more suspicious when she could have just lied her way out. She has a good poker face after all. She really just doesn’t want to be associated with anything stupid so she ends up blocking people out and, in turn, ends up distancing herself from people and kind of ruining a chance of any reputation. Plays into the pride thing.

2. She is awful at asking for help. Another pride issue. She’s very good in science and arithmetic-based calculation. She’s great with technology and she’s also good at English. However, she has two areas of weakness: history and complex math. She was in the advanced biotechnology program, but let’s just say she was 2 years above me and we took the same precalc class because she had failed geometry once when she was in 9th grade. She would look like she knew what she was doing, but she really had no clue, and she was dead-silent. I noticed that she sped out of the room quickly after class, probably to avoid our teacher. It was because she didn’t want to admit she needed help, because she was older than everyone else to begin with AND she was in an advanced biotech program.

3. She’s the kind of person you can sit in silence with and not feel awkward around. I would eat lunch with her, but really we were sitting next to each other on the hallway floor doing our own thing, and it was actually nice. She didn’t mind, and I didn’t feel obligated to strike up conversation (though we did talk every once in a while). She actually said she enjoyed the feeling of being alone but not bothered. I agreed. We could both do our own thing but we felt less exposed and comforted just by being there physically. I’ve noticed that INTJs really tend to prefer that kind of silent togetherness and it gives them a sense of protection, trust, comfort, and it allows them to relax. They’ll never say it aloud but the body language screams, haha.

4. She has a few really good friends who she would do anything for and vice-versa. She has been dead-set on a career in biotech since middle school, but she decided that having the support of her friends was integral to achieving her goals in college, so she ended up going to the uni that they all went to. It’s a state school and it’s really good while still fairly inexpensive (also IN STATE TUITION), and they have a good marching band, which was important to her. Band was how she made those friends, so despite not being a serious musician, she found enjoyment in it. So, she was actually flexible in achieving her goals. INTJs don’t actually drop people like garbage to achieve what they want like they’re stereotypically shown to do, because um…they’re people. Everybody cares about someone. Sticking with the people who have helped her thus far is part of her dream. In the event of separation being a better option, she would just find a way to stay in touch and support her friends from a distance. It may be a hard decision and she would find it hard to discuss for sure, but her intentions are good. Because she’s…not a villain.

5. She really dislikes drama but always finds herself stressing over it. She thinks it’s the dumbest thing ever, but she knows that it isn’t all that petty to some people and she wants to be a supportive friend. She’s told me it’s hard to give advice to people like that because she feels like she’s walking on eggshells. She doesn’t want to lie, but she doesn’t want to make a bad situation worse by telling her friend off only to get roped into the mess. It’s an awkward position to be in (and from personal experience, can confirm).

6. She’s actually pretty friendly! She’s very quiet and isolative, but once she finds common ground, she doesn’t have a problem approaching people who don’t seem like threats. That’s actually how we met. I was talking to someone who was also from the flute section about a certain TV series and she was standing near us and said something like “oh! don’t mean to listen in but i love that show” and later we had a light debate about the pacing of the show and it was really cool. She’s the kind of person who actually considers your argument but will defend hers if she still sees that hers has more merit.

Question:

please share secret to being blogger with at least a 100 notes on everything how do you do that what is this sorcery

Answer:

tbh idk. most of my posts that really “blew up” (nurse’s office, kanji compounds, 10/10 skills, playground, overheard in the halls, things to take to heart, etc.) were from when i had no more than 200 followers. now i have 475, and i haven’t actually done much since my “okay but real talk” back in october when i had maybe 250. i think that some of my steady rebloggers are very popular mbti blogs (and i tag things i guess) so when @intjwoo reblogged my nurse’s office post it really blew up. like i woke up and tumblr was going IN-FUCKING-SANE. and then that got me a few loyal followers who have many loyal followers. and so while i don’t have too many followers my posts reach far thanks to them! thanks y'all.

maybe i never communicate through here and apparently i’m “a bit of a mystery”? i’m sorry that i seem distant or whatever. in fact i read all your comments and some of your tags crack me up. i’m just not the best at communicating with a social media following, so i might need some assistance.

gonna mention that i also don’t like getting a lot of “hi im an ENFP my INTJ boyfriend is mad at me what should i say?” bc first of all, i make shitposts on tumblr; i’m not a therapist or advice columnist. second, no context at all? what’s he mad for? how old are you and how long have you been together? what’s been going on? what are you both like? no one can just magically find a solution with simply [type 1] + [type 2] + [vague emotion].

professional emails

i hate when i write a professional email to my higher-up and i get a reply with something like “Thanks a bunch Kiddo!!! :)”

excuse me harold if i’m expected to send a professional email i expect a professional reply that omits your exclamation points and text emojis

i’m all for accepting legitimate praise and gratitude but there’s no need to be condescending especially if i did you a favor like maybe i’m young but i’m your coworker not your niece

I’m...

sensa-tion:

DOMINANT FUNCTION:

Fe: Empathetic and warm-hearted. Other people are one of the most important things to me and I find it hard not to care about them or to want to keep them happy. I’m a lover of people

Fi: Emotional and opinionated. I have strong feelings about who/what I value and what is truly right, so I let my personal values influence myself more than anything else. I’m an idealist

Te: Driven and responsible. If I want to get something done, I’ll quickly find the most efficient way to do it. I’m a go-getter

Ti: Rational and independent. I love making logical sense of what I don’t know and figuring out how things work to solve problems or just for the hell of it. I’m an analytical thinker

Ne: Very stimulated by ideas and concepts. My mind is always energised by interesting thoughts and connections between them. I’m a visionary

Ni: Detached from the moment by itself and perceptive of the bigger picture. My 5 senses only take me so far, I’m mostly concerned with intangible possibilities and hidden meanings behind things. I’m a contemplator

Se: Spontaneous and highly in tune with my surroundings and happenings in them, which I’m almost always confident in experiencing and interacting with. I’m a realist

Si: Quite in touch with information I’ve gained in the past. My memory is very strong and I’m constantly comparing what I experience in the present to things I’ve experienced in the past. I’m a traditionalist

who…

AUXILIARY FUNCTION:

Fe: Highly values peace and harmony.

Fi: Is very in touch with their emotions and their sense of right and wrong.

Te: Takes charge to organise their environment and accomplish objectives in it.

Ti: Thinks logically and analyses information as objectively as possible.

Ne: Has an active imagination when it comes unrealistic/abstract ideas and possibilities of what could be.

Ni: Has clear plans and goals for the future along with a good idea of how to realise them.

Se: Sees things as they are and has no problems with improvisation or immersing themselves in the moment.

Si: Lets past experiences guide them and influence how they see the world.

When needed, I can…

TERTIARY FUNCTION:

Fe: Be gregarious and charming to get others to like me or to keep a social situation running smoothly,

Fi: Remind myself of my emotions and ideals of right and wrong,

Te: Do whatever it takes to complete a task or solve a problem,

Ti: Step away from emotions and make sense of things rationally,

Ne: Consider multiple possibilities and play with novel ideas,

Ni: See beyond my senses and pay attention to the intangible and to what could become of something in the future,

Se: Indulge in sensory experiences and be open to spontaneity,

Si: Thoroughly compare an experience or an idea to one that’s in my memories,

but many of my faults come from…

INFERIOR FUNCTION:

Fe: Not being very empathetic or sociable and not fully understanding how to properly act in some social situations.

Fi: Being too objective and not being able to foresee what feelings certain things can provoke in myself and others.

Te: Being reluctant to ignore my personal values and consider objective measurements of value and achievement.

Ti: Placing too much value on my own and other peoples’ feelings and not enough on objectivity and rationality.

Ne: Not being very open to novelty or uncertainty.

Ni: Failing to plan for the future or to perceive what my senses can’t.

Se: Being uncomfortable with living in the moment or interacting with my physical environment.

Si: Being bored by constant routine and predictability.
