I probably should have consulted Blackwater before jumping into this thread:
I don't see why your feedback should be moot...?
Yes, I'm INTJ. And I work alongside INTPs in academia. I've read their referee reports and heard their comments at seminars. Even when they're slamming someone's work, they do it constructively, concretizing possible ways of improving the paper and leaving authors to draw their own conclusions about whether to continue to work on the paper or cut their losses and move on.
Of course, it could be that they're simply conforming to expectations of a culture not solely populated by INTPs, but my impression is that they're following the golden rule because even INTPs appreciate a constructive approach (example 1, example 2).
Yes, please!Regardless, if it's feedback and constructive criticism you want...
Agreed, the site needs a lot of work. For me it's a question of where to begin, so knowing what the most people are missing the most (e.g. multiple celebrities? background for each typing? redesign? (how else should it be designed? is there any way we can improve it in html, because it'll be a while before we're able to bring someone on board with real skills?) etc.) is helpful. Thanks for your suggestions on this.The site needs elaboration. Even if it is a beta, it's still not enough. People who know MBTI will disagree with many of the type assessments, people who are researching will be disappointed with lack of explanations, and passerby's who stumble on it will simply stumble away from it.
Point taken. Although, I don't know about never; I think mature individuals of any type are able to overcome their own gut reactions and meet other people halfway. But if there is a next time for me at INTPc, I'll definitely be trying a more, dare I say, diplomatic approach.This is also the reason why INTPc gave you a more negative response than you may have hoped for. INTPs live off of reasoning, the most so of all the rationals, and the little reasoning you offer in the form of quotes is hardly sufficient for true backing. Regardless of the medium, to ask an INTP's opinions on a matter in a way that does not meet their basic requirements will never yield a positive result.
