    NFJs and SFJs when they get sincerely pissed off.

    Here's an NTP pissed off that you didn't just say FJ. Wasted many characters by separating them.




    Not really though. Just pretending to have stereotype Ti ideals.

    yes, this can be an interesting topic to be taken seriously. Here's what Vicky Jo wrote about domni:

    "according to Jungian John Beebe, his anecdotal evidence shows that characters in contemporary American films representing the function of introverting iNtuiting (Ni, an IN_J's favorite function and best gift) tend to portray it via "a psychotic serial-killer, some kind of weird, offbeat sociopath who would give you the creeps."

    According to John, Ni is the deepest shadow of our ESTJ culture. He gives an example of Ni in movies with the famous shower scene from "Psycho," and says this is an example of "demonic Ni," meaning this is how most of the culture views and experiences it.

    He claims it is also a very unpopular function in general. (It's harder on the INFJs than the INTJs, I can tell you.)

    He also claims that Carl Jung singlehandedly rescued the gift of introverted iNtuiting from being relegated to sociopathy in the psycholoical field.

    I want to clarify here that I don't believe INTJs *ARE* psychopaths or most likely to *BE* psychopaths, but there is an UNFAIR perception around the Ni function that lends itself to this stereotype. "

    -INTJ.tribe.net, "psychopaths"


    With (have I mentioned this before on this site yet) Nikola Tesla (definate INTJ) as one of the examples of the 'madman'/'psycho' problem that domni's deal with. By the way, I'm also pretty sure that Russel Crowe's character in Beautiful Mind is also an INTJ. Have you seen it?

    Wouldn't that be Fe (for the ESTJ; and Ni as "deceiving")?

    I still don't fully understand the function myself. It's supposed to be about getting a sense of the future from reading abstract patterns. What does that have to do with psychopathy; eg. chopping someone up in a shower?

    Well. I think ENxPs are most likely to SEEM utterly ridiculous, even if they're sound of mind. INFJs are NOT necessarily crazy, but I do think we might be absurd in a surprising way that makes people think we are.

    Crazy meaning wildly fun & absurd = ENFP

    Crazy meaning likely to throw stuff at you in a fight, or burn all your clothes = ESXJ

    It's a seamless perspective shift to understand the patterns right in front of you. Most people think that there's a perspective out there that makes Ni-types think it's totally okay to chop up people in showers. But, you know, we're not crazy -- we'd only do it if the situation required it.

    INFJs have useful talent of getting very wise using extremely questionable sources of information. They might read books that are bs no matter how you look at it and get to the same conclusions as if they were reading philosophy for their whole lives. It's like turning random words into wisdom.

    So I think they are the guru and the nutcase in the same wrapping. They are not really that "silly". They seem to take it quite seriously, so they are not what I would call crazy, but they sure are absurd, at least for the time before they become gurus . I've met some of these people that are pretty close to being mentally ill, but I guess it's because the world really doesn't need them or value them. They're not good for business, so they get lost.
