    Default Mastermind INTJ's - not all it's cracked up to be

    My first thread, woot. Anyways,
    Being an INTJ, I've had a few people tell me that I come across as "intimidating". If you're not familiar with the type, INTJ's are basically the strategists of the bunch. For every situation that occurs, we'll have ten scenarios playing out in our heads, and ten scenarios branching off from those. We're very much logical, rational, and adept at working alone, which other types may interpret as cold, unfeeling, and aloof. But what I'm saying is that we INTJ's have feelings too! Take Hannibal Lector for instance, one of the more well-known INTJ's. He had his moments with Clarice ;D So please don't label us as arrogant weirdos.
    Feel free to share your past experiences with any INTJ's you have met.

    I have never met an intimidating INTJ. That must be a hoax.

    It's less that INTJs are actually emotionless and intimidating, more that a lot of them like to fancy themselves emotionless and intimidating.

    I could see how my INTJ friend could come off as intimidating, but I'm not intimidated. It helps that she's like 90 pounds and nearly a foot shorter than me. She gives off a no-nonsense kind of vibe, even though she often enjoys nonsense.

    Also, credit for my new avatar goes to this person. I found it on the google.

    Thats been my experience online anyway lol

    I have only met female INTJs IRL that I can recall or who took any mbti tests, and even then it was only 2 or 3 in my whole life and they were pretty cool girls, and not nearly as cold and logical as people make them out to be... just very organized.

    Don't worry, @Zither Keys, this forum has its share of INTJ groupies hell-bent on their quest for the soft, sticky caramel inside those rock hard, unforgiving shells. Good thing too: keeps the dentists in business.

    Moments sometimes turn into lifetimes. It's somewhat puzzling that they didn't follow the original story.

    We all have emotions.

    We just express them differently.
