Hanswerner asked: I’m an INTJ, and I was wondering if you had any experience or advice on how to talk to girls. I’m terrified of talking to girls that have crushes on and every time I try to flirt I make a fool of myself
I’m willing to give advice on almost everything. However –and that’s a big however– I do not, and will probably never be qualified to give dating/flirting/sexual relationship advice to sexual people.
So let’s get one thing straight (pun intended). I’m asexual and romantically attracted to—you guessed it—not women. I wouldn’t stress this so highly except that I just read three similarly focused questions in my inbox.
In anticipation of all the open-minded folk who will have questions about this, I’m going to introduce a New Q&A Contest next week (similar to the last one) focused around this topic. Ask away in the comments below and I will feature your questions in the contest (and keep it respectful).
On that amusing note, I’d also like to extend a welcome to all the heterosexual male identifying INTJs lurking nearby. Please help @Hanswerner out by replying in the comments below.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): Lucien Carr was a rebellious, anti-establishment youth who detested commonality and tradition. Oft times, he was rebellious just for the sake of being differing from the norm, but also to make a statement against living a life that wasn’t your own. “Lu” Carr, as he was known, had a profound influence on everyone with whom he associated, among them, Allan Ginsberg, whom he taught all manner of crass vocabulary.

Anon asked: Just out curiosity (and the desire to procrastinate), why exactly do you have such a negative view on Tumblr and it’s users? And just fangirls in general? I don’t mean any offence or anything i’m just,as aforementioned, morbidly curious.
I don’t hate tumblr. In fact, I use tumblr myself. I simply try to point out that it has pros and cons particularly when it comes to information sharing. In other words, you shouldn’t always trust everything you read about MBTI there.
Pros: Continue reading

Extraverted Intuition (Ne): Ginsberg was all about taking ordinary situations and making them new. Because he was full of ideas, he wrote prolifically, cranking out a large quantity of very long poems in short amounts of time. Even up to the last decade of his life, Ginsberg was putting out quick, vast amounts of poetry. Ginsberg was an open-minded, energetic individual who embraced tolerance and genuinely inspired others to do likewise, not only through his poetry, but through his energetic involvement in counter-cultures. In fact, Ginsberg is attributed to have coined the infamous “flower power” phrase of the 1960s Vietnam era as he encouraged war protestors to engage in peaceful rejection of violence.

Introverted Sensing (Si): Introverted Sensing deals primarily with recalling facts and details of past events. Sheldon has an eidetic memory. Introverted Sensing is very tradition and ritual oriented. Sheldon holds on to these traditions very closely. In the series often Leonard and Howard often convince him to do many things just by saying its a ‘social custom’. He tends to know all the facts and enjoys system and order.He says that he does not like change and thinks that change never good,this is mostly where I believe that he is not an NT and more of an SJ. Sheldon sometimes become stubborn and refuses to try new experiences. Continue reading
