Lots of one on one conversations are direly important for my crew of introverts. Multiple conversations allow for better considerations and speed things up.
This statement left me bemused, so I had to quote it. Sometimes things fall out of and then back into your life. I don’t think I’ve ever intentionally done that, just by happenstance. Though it can be the reflexive reaction to information we can’t yet process. Like, how as a kid so many dirty jokes can fly over your head and then years later when you rewatch things you’re left aghast.
So said Ben, when I asked him about working with INTPs. Still, he keeps seeking out INTPs to work with. There’s a healthy cycle of create, destroy, create, destroy, that seems to get results.
So said Charlie, INTP, I work with. I related to it, as I avoid pushing points unless I’m absolutely positive about the topic. I usually err on the side of caution, and play devil’s advocate rather than take an absolute position.
The extrovert I work with raised this point. I get caught up in my thoughts less when there’s more back and forth—which is part of what makes one on one interactions ideal.
Not liking compliments seemed very alien until I got this explanation (from Charlie, INTP friend). I only dislike compliments if they feel disingenuous or manipulative. As I like emotions and I rarely feel overwhelmed by them.
The woes of a devil’s advocate. It wasn’t an argument in the raised voices, heated discussion sense. Just two different options and conflicting opinions. I had thoughts on both sides of the discussion and wanted to make sure we covered everything. I don’t devil’s advocate things people are emotional about, but ideas and game mechanics I reflexively do.
Said Charlie (INTP) to Ben (INTJ). I’ve noticed them having completely different views on what the problem to solve is. It is often important to start with: “what is the problem we’re trying to solve?” Because if you make assumptions about that you can easily wonder in different directions.
