    Ok I get it, so INTP would be Ti, Ne, Si, Fe ( which you've already told me but I just tried doing it myself lol) I see, interesting,thanks so much
    No problem. Please excuse my lack of clarity. Interestingly, it's a common manifestation of Ni: I understand it well but in a way other people probably find counter-intuitive. Ni is intense and convergent but it's also introverted and so has a lot of impressionistic input. Compare that with Ne which is broad, expanding, and divergent, and ultimately sees patterns in an objective way which is accessible to more people more readily.

    You'll notice a lot of the community who explain it in a relaxed, easy-to-manage way are ENTP and INTP because the Ti-Ne combination makes it pleasant for people to read up as a hobby, and that the dissertation style posts are made by INTJ and INFJ.

    What strange language has invaded our thread? :zomg: We do have a second thread specifically for off-topic chat, just so you know. :yes:

    That episode of Fate UBW... (Part 2, episode 6)
    Spoiler:
    Show
    So Archer is Shirou? Didn't expect that. Although the signs were there from the start, I feel a bit stupid for not realising.
    Only just watched the episode this morning... either I'd forgotten his identity, or Studio DEEN's series didn't reveal it to begin with (haven't watched it in at least 5 years, so I can't be certain which). So that was a nice twist, though I also feel stupid for not working it out sooner.

    Yeah I know because my friend is INTJ and she used to try and explain things to me, and it would always go somewhat like the conversation we had. She would usually explain it to me in order for me to explain it to other people as, like you said, the combination of Introverted-Thinking and Extroverted-Intuition means we can express our ideas in a clearer way for most people.

    I did think it was odd that he had a bit of a fascination with that certain character but I shrugged it off. I'm generally pretty bad at figuring stuff like this out before it's revealed (at least it makes for more interesting plot twists).

    The anime isn't great - the manga is much, much better. The anime unfortunately elected to place much more focus on the rather weak romance aspect of the series instead of the hot-blooded shounen manga writing side which made for rather dull viewing. As a fan of the manga the anime was a big disappointment (still haven't steeled myself to watch the 3rd season yet).

    As someone who hasn't read the manga, I quite enjoyed it. Though as Cara says, the romance aspect is definitely less interesting than the manga creation.

    Cheers, I might just read the manga then.

    Frustrated that I failed to take 10,000th in the 'Last Person to Post Here Wins' thread, but at least I managed to fill the last few pages with pics of Ana Gram. :p:

    Any good or bad opinions on any of these shows:
    Cross Game - Fantastic, I'd highly recommend it. It may seem like I say that about virtually everything, but I liked this one enough to buy the manga afterwards (which is also good). Highly rated, but so few people have seen it. :sadnod:

    Hanasaku Iroha - I remember enjoying it when it was airing, but it's been a while and I don't recall much other than that. Very pretty animation, though!

    Gosick - Haven't seen it, but it's on my want to watch list. I still think the name is a bit unfortunate. :giggle:

    Katanagatari - Very stylish and very fun. Another one I'd recommend.

    I also feel like I say way more good about anime than I do bad; I think its because I try to avoid things that I know I won't like.. possibly the worst series I've watched was school days (Yup watched it all), it was when I was absolutely convinced if I start something I should finish it, even if a very bad choice.

    I'm like AJ in that I haven't read the manga, but the anime was pretty good for me also (in fact I enjoyed it quite a bit).

    I thought the romance - although quite important to the story - was pretty peripheral in that I didn't have to see much of that because of the way the plot works out; maybe I'll have to read the manga since the shonen - get lost in your own fantasy world aspect - was pretty much what I loved about this show.

    Cross game I'd recommend too - the others I haven't watched.
    If you're into mystery then you might find go sick interesting; I really liked the setting and was pretty hooked by it from what I can remember. Also it starts a little slow but it turns out to be pretty awesome and it felt really engrossing, maybe I'm a sucker for 19th/18th century plots but it really draws one in.

    People say physicists make things look complicated yet here you guys are talking about pseudo theories in which people are pulling out random elements to label human behaviour as if it's totally quantifiable.

    Hahaha, human behaviour interests me. It's certainly not quantifiable though, maybe that's why I find it so fascinating.

    Cheers, I'm sure you've recommended Cross Game to me before but 50 episodes always put me off, I prefer shorter series. I'll definitely have to watch it soon

    Hmmm I'll give the Bakuman anime a try after exams then. I haven't seen much mystery but it is something that interests me in general so I think I'd like Gosick.

    Yeah; I totally agree! I've been pretty bewildered and intrigued by it from an early age - I always thought I was an alien of some sort because I couldn't relate to others behaviour and so I became quite obsessed with trying to quantify it as a kid; probably needless to say but I realised isn't not as simple as that.

    Cross Game is highly recommended viewing - it's excellent.

    Hanasaku Iroha I personally didn't like much - but I have major issues with the "cute girls do cute things" genre in general, so I'm not a great person to ask. I will say it is beautifully put together though.

    Gosick is very slow to get started, but really comes into its own at the end. Victorique is a great character.

    Katanagatari is wonderful, I loved it to bits. It is a bit uneven in places, but just bursting with creative ideas and great quirky characters.
