Thanks to US Uncut for this! BREAKING: Detroit’s unelected emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, has just relinquished control of the Detroit Water and Sewage Department, which is now back in the hands of the people. It’s expected the mayor and city council will approve a water affordability plan that caps a household’s water bill at no more than 3 percent of their income.

It’s impossible to be too stupid to be an INTP. Firstly, an MBTI personality type preference is not directly indicative of intelligence. I do think that some types have tendencies and preferences that lead to intelligence, but not all INTPs are intelligent and ultra-intelligent people come in every personality type. 

I’ve gotten this question a lot, and it sort of makes me smile because I think it’s in an INTP’s nature to doubt their own intelligence. INTPs are always seeking the truth and are rarely totally confident in their conclusions because it’s hard for INTPs to imagine that they’ve accounted for every piece of information and perspective. Nothing is ever black and white to an INTP, and all that uncertainty leads inevitably to self doubt when other types seem to have everything figured out.

Also, I think INTPs sometimes feel stupid because of their tendency to gloss over details. I’ve certainly run into this problem. In school, I had trouble remembering dates and names and all kinds of, what seemed to me, extraneous details unless I really focused on trying to learn them. My brain doesn’t naturally focus on that stuff, and I can be very lazy when it comes to forcing myself to learn details. Similarly, if you catch me off guard and ask me to explain something, my attempt at communication can be very jumbled. Something that makes complete sense in my head just won’t come across when I put it into words.

Kids these days take for granted the ability to pirate shit easily. They don’t remember when your source of music would get shut down every few months. Napster, then Aimster, then Gnutella, then Limewire, then Morpheus, then Ares, then Kazaa, then Kazaa Lite, then K++, then Frostwire, then DC++, then eMule, then eDonkey2000, then finally BitTorrent. And that’s all between 1999 and 2004.
