Guided Meditation

How does an INTP slow down thinking?  Meditation!  How does an INTP meditate?  Through guided meditation. Ti dominants tend to think all of the time.  I think when I am trying to sleep, so I rarely get good sleep.  I have found that guided meditation allows me to shut off or slow down my thinking.  It is a similar feeling I get in the “runner’s high.”  Try it.

INTPs as Incubators

I recently read this article Are you a procrastinator or an incubator? posted on CNN.com and really thought about the differences between procrastinators and incubators.  As an INTP, I can relate to this article.  I tend to have that “back burner” mentality discussed in the article.

When I complete my work, whether personal, professional or scholarly, it is of high quality.  I must spend time “putzing” around.  It is necessary to function.  While I am off seemingly wasting time, I am randomly thinking about what I need to do.  Many times I get inspiration from doing nothing or reading or playing video games.  Then, when I actually focus on what needs to be done, BAM!  I produce a quality piece of work in seemingly little time.
Oh, it’s stressful, but that is how I work.  However, not too many people understand this about me.  That is another challenge.  How do we explain this need without sounding selfish and lazy?
