INTP 


 INTPs are most comfortable learning when:

 ♠encountering new problems or opportunities from which to learn
 ♠able to stand back from events and listen/observe, e.g. taking a back seat in a meeting, watching a video
 ♠allowed to generate ideas without constraints of policy or structure or feasibility
 ♠ allowed to think before acting, to assimilate before commenting, time to prepare or do background reading
 ♠acquiring knowledge which is part of a system, model, concept, or theory, even when this is not immediately relevant
 ♠given the chance to question and probe the basic methodology, assumptions or logic behind something, e.g. by taking part in a question and answer session
 ♠listening to or reading about ideas and concepts that emphasize rationality or logic and are well argued
 ♠analyzing and then generalizing the reasons for success or failure

INTP’s are least comfortable when:

 ♠asked to repeat essentially the same activity over and over again
 ♠given precise instructions to follow with little room for maneuver
 ♠asked to attend to detail and tie up loose ends
 ♠‘forced’ into the limelight, e.g. to act as leader/chairman, to role-play in front of onlookers;
 ♠given precise and specific instructions of how things should be done
 ♠asked to do something without a context or apparent purpose or to participate in situations emphasizing emotions and feelings
 ♠faced with a lot of alternative techniques without any being explored in depth
 ♠there is more focus on facts and figures than intellectual exploration

    5 Super Short Stories To Creep You Out

    Published by:

    My New Doggie!

    by Ratfink333

    I went to the animal shelter a couple weeks ago and adopted a beautiful young golden retriever. He’s the smartest dog I’ve ever met. Within days, he knew “sit,” “stay,” and “roll over.” I even taught him the old trick where you make a gun with your hand and say “bang,” and he rolls onto his back and plays dead. The problem is, dogs are much better with hand signals than voice cues, so now, as soon as I make a finger gun, he rolls over onto his back and eagerly looks at me for his treat.

    I’m sitting on the couch watching a movie in the dark and my puppy is on the hardwood floor in front of me, chewing on his new toy. He looks up towards me, pauses, then rolls onto his back, his tongue out and begging for a treat. I realize he’s looking over my head, beyond the couch. The floor behind me creaks.

    Mister Nobody

    By IPostAtMidnight

    Everyone knew Cassie. She was a friendly child, sure, but I think the neighborhood knew her because she knew us. She was the reason our block felt like a family.

    “Girl’s got second sight,” Alletta Johnson would proclaim from her window perch.

    I’ve never believed in such things, but I’ll admit Cassie had a gift. To her, Alletta Johnson was “Miss Grandma,” while the girl who drove the ice cream truck was “Miss Dog Doctor.” Our mailman was “Mister Painter.” She played hopscotch and jump-rope with kids she’d dubbed “Singer,” “Teacher,” and “Fireman.”

    I asked her about all the nicknames once, and from what I could understand they came from how she saw people—as potential. She didn’t exactly see our futures, she just saw us at our ideal.

    “Everybody glows, Mister Writer,” she told me. “Everybody’s good.”

    I’d never told anyone I wanted to write. It was a secret dream, not one I’d let myself take seriously. Yet somehow, she saw it in me. That’s how she saw all of us.

    One afternoon I was cooling off on my front stoop when she skipped down the sidewalk with a stranger at her side. She had obviously enchanted him, just like everyone else. We smiled and waved, and as they passed I asked, “Who’s your friend, Cassie?”

    She paused, tilting her head in confusion before exclaiming, “Oh! You’re being writery, Mister Writer!”

    I should’ve paid more attention as she laughed and twirled off down the street, followed by the stranger. I should’ve realized.

    Cassie always saw the good in people.

    Cassie could only see the good in people.

    But not everybody is good.

    What they don’t tell you about the dead

    by Crimsai

    I don’t want to sound mean, but the dead are pretty clueless. I’ve always seen them. When I was younger everyone thought I was just talking to imaginary friends. After a couple years, when I overheard my parents talk about calling a psychologist, I realised what I was talking to. See, ghosts don’t tend to realise they’re dead, and they don’t look like in the movies, they look just like us.

    I’m pretty smart for a 13 year old, so I started noticing certain patterns to tell them apart from the living. They could be a bit distant from living people, or you’d see them try to talk to people who wouldn’t even notice them. Some of them could tell I was different, that I noticed them. Like this guy I saw after school yesterday. I’m a big boy now, see, I don’t need my parents to pick me up, home is just a short walk away. He was standing away from the other parents, didn’t talk to them, just stared at me, that’s how I knew he was one of the ghosts. I went over, told him I knew what he was and asked how I could help him. I don’t remember much after that, I think because of what happened this morning.

    Downstairs, my parents were crying. I tried talking to them but they ignored me. They must have died last night somehow, sometimes the new ghosts wouldn’t talk to me. Some police officers and reporters just arrived, they won’t talk to me either, just my parents. It’s weird, I’ve never seen so many ghosts together before. Why won’t anyone talk to me?

    Behind Closed Doors

    by Lillpi

    The neighbor was a weird man, he was reclusive and never really spoke to anyone. Tom liked to scare me by saying he must be a murderer, that he always kept to himself so people wouldn’t catch on. I didn’t like the jokes and would tell him off, the neighbor was probably just shy. Although I got mad at the jokes I had to admit, the neighbor did make me uncomfortable. Tom worked a mix of day and night shifts, tonight happened to be one of his night shifts, I don’t like the idea of being home alone at night, everything seems more sinister but I tend to shake these feelings by watching some TV and going to bed.

    I was jolted awake by a loud noise, maybe Tom had come home? I looked at my clock and saw it was 2:30 in the morning. Panic rose, my mind was racing and I didn’t know what to think, there was only two facts that kept repeating in my mind; Tom didn’t finish work till 6 and that noise came from inside the house. I quickly looked out the second storey bedroom window to the drive way below in case he did come back early, his car wasn’t there but what I saw made my blood run cold, it was my neighbor breaking into my house. I grabbed my phone and called the police. I waited in my room, too scared to go downstairs and prayed the police would come in time. They did, they caught him.

    I was still in my bedroom, watching from my window as they took him to the car, he was struggling and screaming, he really was a mad man. “You don’t understand!” He yelled ” I saw someone else go in the house!” as my brain was processing his meaning I heard my bedroom door shut behind me.

    The President is Human

    by OsoBrazos

    Philip started the video clip as soon as Rose closed the door to the editing bay. Charlie Clark, the newly elected President’s head speech writer moved on screen. He was familiar to the small group in the sound-proof room; he had worked at their news station for three years before taking his current position in November of 2016. He was dressed nicely and spoke eloquently enough, but his hands betrayed his nerves. He kept running fingers through his hair, straightening his tie, and sipping water.

    “…and, unlike the President, I can say whatever I want,” Charlie quipped onscreen to the laughter of the assembled journalists. “But seriously, the goal of a speech writer is not to tell the President how he feels – we are not in danger of running the world accidentally – it’s to put the President’s feelings, the feelings he was elected to have, into the perfect words.

    “Say the President is fuming over a human rights violation. The President is human, he’s allowed to be angry. In fact, he’s so angry his commendable diction slips. It’s my job to craft a statement that encapsulates the President’s anger – is the verbal embodiment of his sense of injustice – so he can deliver that to the world.”

    Philip stopped the video and spoke. “As the Secret Service led us away from this conference, one of them pressed a paper into my hand. It was a code Charlie and I used as war correspondents in Afghanistan. It says the phrases made when he touched his tie were false.”

    Philip played those segments. “I can say whatever I want.” “We are not in danger.” “The President is human.”
