I relate to all of them pretty well. There are some specific people I may not relate to as well but I'm not sure it has to do with type.
2.How likely are you to criticize others for something that you consider to be ...... I will call it "strategic nonsense" ?
I don't believe I have ever considered something strategic nonsense. I may consider that they have a different point of view, that a) i don't understand, or b) don't agree with. Generally in those cases, I'll ask questions to better understand their point of view and engage in a dialogue which often results in an agreement that considers both perspectives. Sometimes, I'll just tell them that I disagree and why. Sometimes, you just end up having a difference of opinion.
3.Do you consider that you would be more succesful in the case you grew up in a more TJ environemnt ? (I mean on a healthy TJ environment)
I don't think so. It would have been easier being surrounded by more Ns - until college, I felt somewhat like an alien amongst my peers. My mom was an NF and dad an SJ. They both had very good qualities.
4.How do you actually feel about spontaneous behaviour and how often do you engage in it ?
I often enjoy it as long as there is no particular pressure to perform. However, sometimes I am just not in the mood.
5.Did you play with militaristic toys when you were a kid ?
Some - sure especially when I was really little. I remember having a tree fort and carting all kinds of rocks up there in case we were attacked.
6.Are there people who are afraid of you and you are not sure why this is the case ? Or why they find your personality traits intimidating.
Maybe ones that don't know me well. I don't think this is generally much of a problem though. I'm direct and don't avoid conflict, which may turn some people off. I've learned to temper this behavior and throttle it up or down based on the situation, which I still don't think I've got totally down but am a lot better than I used to be.
7.How do you see a differance between STJs and NTJs ?
STJs are more responsible and conscientious I think. They make decisions based on what they've experienced before, vs. NTJs that are more inclined to pursue new or innovative things without facts or experience.
8.How much are you tolerant of people who late regulary ? How do you deal with this.
It is a mixture. Often, I really don't care that much because I have other things to do. Other times, I'm annoyed when I have to wait for someone because I cannot stand idle time waiting (like the short wait in a supermarket line always annoys me). Since I can be late myself, it is not something I get too worked up about though.
