INFJs, however, with secondary Fe feel compelled (I would imagine) to valuate. I would think the pull between seeing a plethora of angles and the compulsion to valuate them would make you guys (and gals) nuts!
    Which is probably why INFJs so desperately seek a "best fit" objective truth for every situation. Every perspective has merit but some perspectives simply can't be accepted as is because they would violate the INFJs value system. By taking into account the reality and practicality of the situation, while attempting to respect all the alternative perspectives, an INFJ can craft a new point of view that can act as an anchor. This anchor keeps them as undistorted and unbiased as possible while still respecting their values.

    Or at least that is what I tend to do. So maybe I am nuts.

    Sorry, but it is true.

    We are open-minded in ways you can't even perceive!





    Ahahahahahaha!

    Is there any chance that J's could have moments of remarkable open-mindedness, or is that completely impossible. Is the case closed?

    So whoever is willing to consider the other type more open-minded first, gets the great big open-minded prize. (I'll let you know what that is when all the votes are in)

    Hell no! If, for example, the INTPs were to say INFJs were the most open-minded, we'd get the open-minded prize... thus invalidating our conclusion!

    Illogical!

    And if INTPs were to say INFJs aren't the most open-minded type, then they could not receive the open-minded prize. That is quite a paradox you guys made.

    I concluded that all types are open minded in their own way.

    That's why we INTPs reject the contest, and therefore retain the title!

    Define...closed-minded...because I just realized that I don't think I know any closed-minded people except for my family members and my one friend that moved to Texas.

    Too bad! Now the open-minded prize will forever remain a secret. What a shame! And in case anyone was wondering... yes, my mind is made up about this!

Maybe there's a problem in the definitions and descriptions which is why people respond this way.
    Don't get me wrong. I don't want to be lumped in with introverts either. Given the choice between the loud and shallow group, or the lame and clueless group, I'll take "none of the above".
