INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?

(WHAT'S NEW: 10/23/15--I've been away for a good bit grappling with new challenges and the next stage of life struggles. You have put tools 1 and 2 in place, and in the midst of this crisis, you have used tool 3 to try to calm. The situation is AT LEAST 50% better than you are fearing. And you may very well cause the very thing you are fearing. You need something new in the situation, something to get yourself out of the loop inside your head. Shortly after posting this article, a number of INTPs have asked some very INTP questions. So the first thing to do is realize that you are still in the grip of whatever is eating you from the inside out. Toxic thoughts, however, will keep intruding and reigniting the pain and inviting you to churn all over again. Throw that frigging toxic thought right out of your head. You need some juicy INTP fuel to put you on the forward path rather than the backward path.
But I'm coming back with a new article, and a new idea! For example, if you think you are about to lose someone you care about, acting in anger driven by terror and pain could very well open up a fast descending spiral of actions/reactions that result in losing that person. But no, it wasn't true until your reactions caused it. You are out of immediate crisis now, you aren't making a huge mistake by acting rashly, but you are heavily weakened and at risk. Talk to a friend, do something that calms you, switch gears, go for a run, listen to a song that evokes the opposite reaction, watch a comedy, just do something else! Okay, Jason, I've gotten past the immediate crisis, but the problem is still there! Let the Bouncer protect your peace while you begin to heal with time.
