INTP Problem #111
Most people are blind to the amount of assumptions they make. A lot of what people claim are facts are actually just widely held beliefs/ perceptions.
Story of my life. Being a female INTP, I feel like a unicorn because INTPs are rare, especially females (well it seems so). Being a Christian INTP who loves science, I’m more of an invisible pink unicorn that others assume is an ass (i.e. Wild donkey) because the latter are all they see.
Friendly reminder that anyone born between 1985-1998 didn’t get their hogwarts letter because Voldemort’s ministry wiped out the record of muggleborns
This explains so much.
7 Benefits of Change
1. It grows you as a person as you gain new insights and learn new lessons.
2. It keeps us adaptable and flexible which are beneficial traits in all areas of life.
3. It helps us to see life from a new perspective, and challenges old values and points of view.
4. It helps to makes you stronger as you have to leave behind what was previously familiar, and made you feel secure.
5. It opens up new doors of opportunity that you never would have walked through if you’d just stayed as you are.
6. It develop your resources and creativity as you have to learn new things, and to change your old routines.
7. It provides a new beginning where you turn a fresh clean page, and write on a fresh slate, and start to reinvent yourself.

Answer to: “konekod said: So I have this INTJ protagonist I want to thoroughly understand before writing, particularly in relationships. Right now I’m focusing on the one with the eventual ISFJ spouse…”
My mother is an ISFJ and I am an INTJ. We learned to get along when I was very young and she has learned to accept that I don’t usually mean what I say (hells yeah sarcasm), and I have learned that sometimes people expect you to say certain things and do things to show you care. I love spending time with her because she tells me stories and rants about people which I usually find highly amusing (unless she’s ranting to me). It’s not small talk or gossip it’s simply her expressing her opinion which is usually very well thought out as well as being expressive of her feelings. and when she does say something that I disagree with, she’s willing to listen to what I think and doesn’t take offense to my criticisms (though I do usually word them carefully and tone it down if I need to so as not to be misunderstood). We don’t fight often and if we do it’s never for long because neither of us like being mad. It’s usually because I haven’t done something or the way I’ve acted is unacceptable and/or rude. It’s often difficult for me to see why she’s mad at me but I do my best to make sure I to fix the problem so as not to provoke her again.
Obviously my relationship with my mother isn’t the same as what every relationship between an INTJ and ISFJ would be like since we’ve known each other for a very long time. But I think it shows that so long as people are accepting and try their best to understand the other person any relationship can work. Though this might be very difficult for INTJs and ISFJs that have just met and are trying to get along. I would suggest taking it slow and learning exactly what each other get annoyed by and learning what they need to receive to feel loved.
Hope this helps you with your writings to do with INTJ and ISFJ. :)
Yes, this is very helpful. Reblogging to find more easily later.
