    What does an INTP in love look like?



    But seriously, what does it look like? This is one area where I don't have an answer.

    The myth of Diana and Actaeon...

    Actaeon, a young hunter, stumbles on Diana, goddess of the hunt, in the woods. She is naked and bathing, and Actaeon immediately becomes enraptured, at which point Diana realizes his presence and taken aback, she turns him into a stag. He flees through the forest, and she sends her hounds to rip him apart.

    That's INTP love in my experience.

    Getting jailed for a murder he didn't commit. Ending up in Mexico with a black BFF a quarter century later.

    what it looks like is whatever outward expression of joy, awe and disbelief suits the situation.

    but sometimes you get

    I was fine when I came, and fine when I left.

    Wouldn't know
    Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard.

    These are pretty much spot on.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.
