    I am fairly similar in this regard. Other reasons why I might not correct assumptions is because I don't see any relevance or importance in doing so or it's really none of their business (it's not my job to prove myself to irrelevant people).

    We don't/can't feel things strongly
    We are not aware of how we really feel about things
    We're all good at math, science, and computers
    We're all socially clumsy
    We're all hyper intellectual people who flash our Mensa cards and talk down to the less intellectually gifted

    I do this as well, although it doesn't work as well for me because at some point...you have to be able to produce the results that make people rethink their view of you.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    I made a joke that it's because we want to be special and be a minority forever.

    about 20 minutes later:


    now when i said it i giggled a bit - i thought it was pretty funny, but because of the delay in the reaction for everyone else, it wasn't "hahaha" funny, it was "huh, that's sort of clever" funny.

    so who failed:
    did they fail at getting the joke?
    did i fail at delivering it?

    i can gloat in pride and say it's the first, but realistically speaking, i was the one who wanted to make others laugh and didn't achieve my goal. picking the first interpretation would basically mean being snobbish about my own failure.

    being a snob is about being proud of your own failures to communicate. it's the little child pouting "i'm a good thrower! it's not my fault everyone else can't catch the ball!".

    p.s.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about the cases where misconceptions can be considered useful information and dealt with accordingly--correcting the bits that matter, when they matter.

    I'll have to caveat what I said: when it's important for others to understand me, I'll want to clear them up misconceptions right away.

    When people who see crazy concepts springing from an eccentric weirdo think the person is in a TiNi loop.

    I don't think a 4 has contributed yet, so I figured I'd have a go.

    Common misassumptions about 4's:
    - We are solely ornamental and thus, useless.
    - We want to be alone.
    - We are anxty drama queens that can never be rational.
    - We are arrogant snobs.
    - We can't be satisfied in life.
    - We must be Emo, Goth or some other alernative/dark style.

    Just because you join a typology community, you have to be a typology snob. The nerve.
    To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    50% of strangers interpret my constant boredom as constant hatred, many take offense and react to it but cannot articulate why they're upset... so the problem has never been fixed. I have people tell me I have an attitude problem, or that I'm a dick. Meanwhile I feel peachy and am rather confused by these accusations.

    thats cause ID enneas(7,8,3) withdraw from being their true active selves and tend to appear arrogoant doing so when disintegrating, people want you to be your true uninhibited self. So yeah, its just they know theres a problem with you but dont know what else to do than point it out in hopes youd figure solution yourself. You just have to find out how to show them some positivity with your wing 7 side.
    healthiness is all about appreciating other peoples inferior function. its like the sore spot no one ever notices, but we desperately wish they did, and if you focus on doing that, youll have many friends. and also learn to appreciate your own inferior function, others wont find it stupid if you show them how cool it is.

    mistakes happen. expect them, and grow from them. look for them, and avoid them.
