I'm having trouble determining if im INTP or a lazy INTJ. So theres a thread out about how INTJ's and INTP's talk to themselves... But how do their running monologues e. i. their thought processes, & the role words play in that differ. the Left brain is what uses words to think, the right brain spatial thought. INTP's are suppose to think non-linearly. Here is my initial response to the other post on the other thread. compare it with your INTP thought process, and tell me if this is similar to yours & in what way, or tell me if its foreign & in what way:
::running monologue warning::
hahaha yeah i cuss myself out too. then rationalize my behavior, & explain to myself why i did what i did & what the root cause is, then determine not to let the cause manifest itself again but it always does & i end up calling myself bad things again. wow maybe im INTP and not INTJ; damn im confused on what i am. only the left brain relies on words to process information. I guess that kind of shows it's always a mixture of both sides. is right brained thinking in words? what is thinking other than verbal & spatial. But how can you think of everything spatially. Is there such a thing as spatial verbal thought. hmm. OK maybe INTP's may convert things into words but they dont initially reason with words, the words are secondary, theyre atomic facts manipulated in space, but this is still too circumstantial.
So do INTJ's rely on words as their primary thought structures & not secondary?
I wonder if you could determine J/P by simply administering an IQ test & comparing verbal vs spatial dominance.
Do INTJ's have a terrible sense of direction when driving, or is this an INTP triat. If it is then i deffinitly am INTP.
Keep in mind while reading this that it is a bit difficult to translate inner monologue into outer monologue. Does this kind of thought structure sound alien to you? If it does than ill call myself INTJ. someone comment; making a running dialogue of your thought process for me. REGARDS- ian
