Twice now I have posted the following regarding what I find is the most common, vexing and self-destructive problem area for INTJs (and possibly INFJs?), namely closed-minded certitude:
The single follow-up I have gotten is from an INTJ who wrote:We INTJs base a lot of our self-esteem on being insightful and decisive, but we are not always right - and that's okay. Making errors (of fact and of judgment) is forgivable. (People don't mind that we are not perfectly oracular. Really! ) Refusing to recognize and own up to our errors, however, costs us serious points. And it's idiotic, really, given that we aren't fooling anyone, just alienating them. Some strategists!
Oh, and Economica - speak for yourself. I'm always right.
So I figure it's time for a poll. I'm making it multiple so that non-INXJs can vote on their experience with both types.
