    This is actually what I hear people complain about most when they voice their dislike, which happens quite rarely. Normally, they'll just avoid me and not explain why. Haven't quite got that social mirroring thing down, hahaha...

    Fess up. Who told you about the master plan? They'll have to be dealt with.

    One reason for bad rep, though, is bad orthography.

    For me, it's what happens when I meet up with a person who is argumentative: we just fight word-for-word to the end, with me posing analytical, yet seemingly annoying [to my opponent] questions. This gets the other person disliking my attitude to problems. This happens rarely, fortunately.

    That's because the reference tends to be focused on the latter. And the unsecured verity of INTJ/ENTJ who create extreme contention are the placeholders of stereotype for a lot of confusion. As would any personality have certain attributable experience and attitude configurations attached to the image map of the values and perceptions created through experience of the thought and emotional spectrum that ensues with the unadjusted often unstable version of personalty.

    You can gain an insight into this as defined when you view how much each personality heightens some of those characteristics when they grouped like on individual forums rather than having balanced views as a forum like this helps establish. Where the traits, behaviours and flavours of personality become expressed as the definition when the reality is it is a conglomeration of people who are going through different levels of experience and are bringing to the for the negatives and focusing on those more often as the certified tunneling of thought perception rather than creating a broader general view that is healthier. You can see this in the manner in which descriptions are created, there seems to be a disproportionate amount of time relegated to creating certain values and perceptions that aren't entirely representative but selective.

    Ummmm, no one take this the wrong way but, I was looking up the rationale of serial killers (I forget why, believe me lol) and I found a few sources online claiming that most of them are INTJs. I think if they get a bad rap, it's just because of a stigma surrounding that strange theory. I personally have an INTJ friend that I work very well with and although he lacks the social perception I have, and we get into arguments sometimes over it, he's a genuinely likable dude and is very considerate.
    The knowledge of possibility falsifies all facts.

    I've got none. Even if I had, I don't see why. I mean: what am I going to do once I'm able to "take over the world"? I just don't see it happening in my eyes.

    Thanks to Hollywood, INTJs are stereotyped as the evil masterminds, and ENTJs as the ruthless, corrupt, power-hungry CEO or politician. Obviously, this only applies to a small fraction of NTJs IRL, but try telling Hollywood that.
