You sound like a good friend. I always tried to let my close friends know I'm there for them like you're saying, though I have yet to meet someone I can have the kind of imaginative conversations you're describing. Most of my friends aren't super into astronomy and physics or coming up with alternative universes. Sometimes it makes me feel like a nerd.Hopefully you're able to connect with him in person again. With covid though it seems like that might be a while.
Hahah, well thank you!Its been a while since I read up any physics or natural sciences... It was so much fun knowledge to acquire :D Im finishing my degree this year, so its extremely busy... I miss investigating topics on my own, and randomly hanging out with friends between classes... The imagining never stops though, Im pretty much a daydreamer.Have you ever tried writing stories? I feel like having this kind of knowledge and capacity to imagine is great for writing stories (:Thank you! I hope we can meet again soon too. Its not too bad here where I am, we are able to meet 1 person at the time. The only thing is he is out of province for a few reasons, but he might come back after the holidays. And I really hope he does!I also hope that you can find a way to better connect with your close friends (: Are you the type to make new friends often?Also, Im kind of an introvert but I do make a few new friends every year. Recently I found out what my mbti type is, and so I joined a private group of people of my type on social media. It has been an amazing discovery! Because I found so many like-minded people, and its great talking with them, almost daily, hahah. I connected with a girl in that group who actually lives near my city, and its crazy how much in common we have.You can try the test at 16personalities. com by the way
also, @paullingren, Im wondering why you asked this question... is there someone you want to be friends with really badly?
Funny you should mention writing stories. Its something I've recently began exploring because when I was younger, creative writing was a deep passion of mine, but I never pursued it because I didn't see the long term potential for it in my life. Recently that's changed. I'm a daydreamer too.I'm an introvert as well but I like to spend most my time deepening existing friendships. Like I have a few really close friends I've known for a really long time, and I can be pretty guarded around new people. I actually have a weakness in vulnerability so I've been working on that.If you're talking about the Myers-Briggs test? I'm INTP.Reason I asked the question was mostly curiosity. It was something I remember from when I was younger- gravitating strongly towards certain people and away from others. I'm actively looking for people that have trouble making good friends and want to improve that part of their life, so I ask thought provoking questions and I have really enjoyed the conversations on this app so far. :)
Ahh I see, im glad you're rediscovering an old interest then! (: my fellow daydreamer :D"I like to spend most my time deepening existing friendships" I agree with this 100%, hence me trying to keep track of this guy I mentioned, who by the way is als INTP.. What are the odds? :DHow do I make better friends with your type, any advice? x)And asking "thought provoking questions" is definitely a good way to attract people like me (INFJ). I keep really busy because of school, so ill skip some interesting questions, but I've been on this app for years, and I had some great conversations on here as well (:
Thanks :) I'm always looking for ways to grow and improve my life.For some reason it doesn't surprise me he's INTP too. I felt a strong commonality with the way you described him. Also my current relationship is INFJ haha so I guess we naturally get along? As far as attracting more INTPs... I may need to think about that more but I'd say focus on being yourself. I think we're attracted to authenticity and people who are naturally curious and open to learning. I'm down to talk more about that though because that's a really good question.What are you going to school for?
Ahh very interesting (:And yea I'd love to hear your insights :DIm getting really curious since you have experience with an infj x)I study Civil Engineering (focused on buildings/architecture). I had a class in common with my intp friend, and we were lab partners, but he's in Computer Science.Im so thankful for the odds that turned out in him spotting the free seat next to me, and we ended up being lab partners. I think we really help each-other that term.I was kind of struggling in my personal life, and his ability to explain the material to me was a blessing. While his struggled with keeping track of more administrative things like pre-labs and submissions, and I was really good with that... I think we saved each other a couple of times...That kind of teamwork I never found with other people in university. In my program, everyone is really competitive, and Is hardly willing to ever help. You need to help them first and even then they might not help you, its like they just wanna use eachother...so yea, i miss him T - T and I just wanna know him better, and I wish that the rules of distancing change soon, because to be honest they're pretty messed up rules, seriously... In my city at least, doesn't make since how people go to work, primary school is open... but other people in general can't see friends? I don't know, its weird. ok sorry, my rant is over :b
I've never heard the term ambivert... even though I think I am one. Thank you!
You're welcome! Another word with a "ambi" prefix which I learned is "ambidextrous"! Apparently the prefix "ambi" is latin for "both".
That's good. can't control if they like you back or not. So best to let go of the need for them to like you right?
To be true I was upset for like 3 days but after that all became normal and I feel free and Don't really feel like I need to talk to her or anything like that. Otherwise, I used to talk more than 19 hours in this lockdown time

I think a good friend will go out of their way to make the friendship work.
Think I went overboard with the criticisms 😔 but we could really communicate with one another so I really wanted to be friends
I say good for you for being honest about your feelings.
I feel that. It hurts especially when you see shows or movies where there's a pair of best friends or even seeing them in real life. When you know it exists but can't imagine what it's like to have it. Then of course there's covid now...
I even remember being obssessed about my bullies and at some point I wish I was their friend I kinda admired them. Looking back that's so crazy. I really don't know why I had those feelings. Reminds me of Stockholm Syndrome.
Bullies? That's interesting. I despised bullies. But I did the same thing when I was younger with people I really admired.
Everyone's a creep deep down.
When I was younger, for sure. At some point I realized no one is worth obsessing over because I can't control if they like me back or not.
