    Exclamation Ever felt like "Others are not on your Level"?

    This could also go into the Relationship-Area but since it is a *Bit* more about MBTI Types and that Feeling, I will stick with it here. If it's in the wrong Place, please let me know.

    So, what I wanted to know is, if you have ever felt like "Other People are not on your Level". Not in an arrogant kind of Way, more of...you think too different or you just know so much more...or maybe also in "People can't really keep up with you".
    This goes especially to INTJ or -smiliar Types, but I am also interested to hear from Others (or maybe Someone has already felt like s / he can't keep up with certain Types or so?)

    Personally, I have had that quite often lately.
    I have some Hobbies (a big one is making Graphics and / or program) and no matter where I looked, People just seem to be "under my Level", meaning I am too good for them to keep up. That makes me feel very dissatisfied, because I would love to be FINALLY able to talk to Someone who can keep up with me on that and do some little Projects together.
    I have also already tried to teach some Persons that Stuff, but somehow they had a big Lack of Enthusiasm to keep going. It always ended up that I had to remind them, instead of them telling me that they wanna move on.

    So, has this or Something similar already happened to some of you?
    (And again, I am NOT being or wanting to be arrogant. It is actually bothering me quite a Bit)

    Every day of my life. Not necessarily in terms of proficiency or intelligence, just by the way I view/choose to live my life. I often find it amusing to talk to people about decisions I've made with relative ease which they generally find unthinkable to do.

    Can't say that it has, but I work in academia and am just starting out. I also have a TONNE of hobbies, which I've picked up at some point or another during my life. Can't say that I've ever felt like I'm being unchallenged either at work or in these fields.

    In "normal" daily life, though... I find that I can't carry a conversation that I'm interested in with most people. That may be why I hang out with people from work, especially those who have similar interests.

    I get the "lack of enthusiasm" attitude from students, which is pretty demoralising because during class I do "put myself out there" and go out on a limb to make it interesting/exciting. But they're students, so it's quite typical. I do get very enthusiastic when people are teaching me stuff, I guess that's what keeps them keen on it.

    Yeah that's actually another Thing that plays into the "Problem" I mentioned.
    For Example...when I find Stuff in my Life that I don't like, instead of complaining I just do Researches and try to find Something to change / resolve the Problem. Normally it doesn't take me long. And Others who have Problems would just complain about it over and over when talking to me. Then they ask for Advice, I present them a Solution (even Step by Step), mostly even offering my Help. And in the End they won't do Sh... about it and just come again the next Day (or only a few Hours later), to complain about the same Thing.
    So...is this just me or...? *lol*


    I find that I can't carry a conversation that I'm interested in with most people.
    Ohh, so true, I know this one too! I TOTALLY relate to you on that one. And that's why Sometimes my Mind gets literally bored. So I sit there, try to solve that "Problem" and try to find People like me, but nothing.

    By the Way, my Friends are mostly INFP, a few also ETFS and ITFG. I don't know how well INTJs and those Types work, since I really haven't too much Information on those Types YET, but...any Experiences maybe with those Types and "feeling like they can't catch up"? I mean from reading the Descriptions I would say it could work but uh...Reality looks totally different?

    What I never understood is when someone asks me for advice on whether or not they should do something. I tell them not to, and they do it anyway with negative results... then when I say "I told you so" they get all uppity and say I never told them what to do.

    Oh Gee! So you got that Problem too? *lol*
    I have the VERY SAME Problem all the Time! I would tell People Something because they asked for Help and Advice, then they don't do it and a Bit later I go "Man, I told you! Why didn't you do what I said?" but they have no Answer for it. And it keeps happening over and over. They somehow just don't take me for serious or...IDK. Maybe you know what it is with them.

    It is because you are a genius, Sir... on a level high above all of the others! HOW could anyone predict that such a thread would be the happy romping grounds of INTxs!

    Different levels? No.

    Different planets? Sometimes, yes.
