    Looking for a penpal

    I haven't given up on friendship yet, though I couldn't tell you why. Let me be direct and honest. I'm tired of not being able to find anyone in school who shares my interests. I'm 16 and a high school junior. I would like to invest in a sincere friendship. Every now and then I have a slight desire for company, for someone to talk to who will listen to my thoughts, but I don't know how to find such a person and don't want to lose hope looking. I don't want to waste my time, either. I enjoy reading thoughtful discussions on matters I consider deep and interesting, I enjoy learning, among other things, and I want a friend who can count on me and whom I can count on. Most relationships in my life have been frail and I want someone with whom I can discuss almost anything, if not anything. I will be as open-minded as I know how to be and will try not to be judgmental. I will be straightforward but polite. Is there anyone who wants to at least try?

    I admit I don't know what we would even talk about. I don't know how friendships work. My closest one consisted of me being way too talkative with an online friend who was all too secretive, and whom I was not allowed to penetrate. He didn't share my interests, and, disillusioned, I had to cut off our connections.

    Time has suggested over and over again that I will only find the mental intimacy I desire in someone like me, and so naturally I gravitated toward an INTP forum.

    Hi. How did you hear about personality types? I was in my 40s before I heard of INTP.

    Hello! I'm taking a psychology class right now, and my teacher let us see what we would be doing later on this year. We will be covering several personality theories, the Myers-Briggs one included. I mentioned this to show you just one way that other students my age and even younger might be made aware of the theory.

    As for me... I took the test years ago, maybe in 2013 or earlier. I remember I took the test on 16personalities.com and later read more about the theory, understanding more as the years went by. To be honest, I can't remember exactly /what/ led me to the site. What about you, how did you learn of the theory?

    I remember feeling the same way when I was your age. Then I found these people and some of them have become really good friends. I can only speak for myself but I'm a shit penpal (always procrastinate too much in replying) but maybe whe you've got enough posts under your belt you might want to start a blag here. It can be a good outlet and people are usually pretty good at popping their heads in and commenting.

    or depending on your opinion on hugs.

    Things have a way of popping up once you're open to them. But I don't think you need to search. I'd say just keep doing the things you enjoy, even if they're solitary activities. You'll discover that friend eventually (at least that's the way it was for me).

    I personally wouldn't want my 16 year old son or daughter on this forum.

    I'd have to look up my first post to see if I said. Maybe from an online test. I'm not really too into it.

    Are you a genius?
    This just in: I'm accepting all friend requests too unless you're a fricken jerk and I can't stand your existence and inane drivel. If that's the case, then I'll accept your friend request so I can keep an eye on your ass unless you don't hold any interest for me; then only the threat of keeping my eye on you stands. feces
