    1. INFJ on Crack,lol.

    2. Admire most- have good boundaries, are big kids, easy going, light-hearted, complexity, rich sense of humor, are an individual and are different then me too, people who follow their convictions and lead or minister by INSPIRING others but do not force their convictions on others, accepting, forgiving, thankful heart, proactive attitude, people who are secure, want to grow- seek to understand and are able to be vulnerable, interdependent, bold, kind, takes life by the horns, authentic and knows who they are, I LOVE PEOPLE WHO ARE CHARACTERS AND HAVE FLAIR, can admit they're wrongs and can apologize, are wise

    3. Deplorable- having really really bad boundaries, bullying, indifference, controlling, invalidating other people's worth, don't appreciate anything, lack of or no sense of humor

    4. Of course, I love sharing and seeing what others share

    4. Always!
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I wasn't really sure about how to word what I meant, and I knew this "tall poppy syndrome" would be mentioned somewhere. That isn't *quite* what I meant..

    I'm all for independance and individualism, that everyone is different and special from everyone else and all that, actually. If everyone chooses the blue cup then I don't see anything wrong with choosing the purple cup just to be different, or things like that. What bothers me is when people act out if there isn't a choice for them to express their individualism, which supposedly reflects their superior whatever traits.

    I wrote half a page about this but I decided to delete it because I figured this would be clearer:

    I do not appreciate myspace-style emo kids who do it just to be cool, and other people of like personality.

    In other words,

    I think these types are trying to prove their emo cred to fit in with the emo crowd rather than establish their "uniqueness". They might see it differently, but I've long since accepted that people tend to be uninterested in reflecting upon the psychological reasons behind their actions, and as a result don't even understand themselves very well.

    Just to participate:

    1.) INTJ

    2.) I admire: efficiency, intelligence, cunning, drive, and the ability to remain collected and coolheaded.

    3.) A la Maverick, I don't like the traits which stand in contrast to those stated above.

    Type: INTx

    Admire: Adaptability, ability to work hard, ability to solve problems and do a lot of things well, accomplishments, friendliness, ability to think long term.

    Deplore: Social manipulation, mental laziness and weakness, excusing personal weakness as an "identity", expecting others to have weaknesses, pretending repetition is new, most types of "marketing", whether personal, advetising, or other attempts to jazz things up that don't deserve the attention (examples include anything with "politically incorrect" in the description, dating rituals, etc.), the negatives of the "admire", though a lack of focus on accomplishment and getting something done well are particularly deplorable to be, irresponsibility.

    Enjoy: once I see the final results.

    If they are following some pre-made script of what an Emo kid should do, how an Emo kid should act and dress then they are not being non-comformist at all, but rather are following a pack just to fit an image. A form of mindless conformity. They may be rebelling against your group but they are simply following another group.

    It is sort of the "be different, wear jeans" thing of America in the 70s. Now it is "Be different, wear the right brand of jeans." :rolli:

What you describe is similar to small towns in the U.S. I won't live in a small town ever again because of my experiences. In my understanding the worst type of arrogance is the inability to acknowledge what is superior to oneself. The truth is there will always be someone kinder, more creative, more intelligent, more capable than 'you' (in the universal sense). The sooner a person can come to grips with that, the sooner they are operating in reality. There is nothing more arrogant than turning a blind eye, or worse ostracizing, someone with a superior trait. I realize plenty of people only imagine this superiority, and it is more justified to reject them for it if they stand alone, but group conceit is almost always present as well. It's partly why it's so offensive when an individual considers himself superior to the group. It offends the group's assumed dominance.
    What you say is true and it is probably also true that even more average people might supress their own unique traits or talents to better fit in with a group. A person can be different but not see themselves as superior or anything and yet others will label them strange if they don't fit into that particular group's cookie cutter model for being acceptable. I often wonder how much this kind of group pressure limits true human potiential for people no matter their talent level or intelligence level.

    I prefer the word respect.
    I respect people who do not try to find an answer outside of the question.
