    No, it's none of that, more the fact that you seem to find it expedient to put people down/discredit them by attacking their status in the social hierarchy.

    First is that ENJs are more likely than others to come to this site with a very specific goal in mind, and are likely to move on once that goal has been fufilled. That gets at a second semi-related point which is that the inner workings of typology are not as compelling to us as the fact that it works (if that makes any sense). Endless rumination over a subject doesn't appeal as much as getting out and applying it in a practical way.

    Finally, the thing that keeps most of the active members here has nothing to do with typology itself, but with the social component of the site. I know this last one is a barrier to entry, but I'm not 100% sure why. We tend to be more conservative, so the idea of building online relationships may seem a little far out/pointless. And assuming that's not an issue, our pride probably wouldn't allow for us to invest the time in navigating a site as clique-y as this one. If there are more active ENJs at personalitycafe as someone mentioned, it's either because a)the people there are mistyped, or b)the forum's culture is more open than this one's is.

    More tangibly, most of the ENTJs that I've known here have left simply because life called and it was time to move on. Sometimes shit's just that simple.

    I barely read that thread, but noticed that part as I skimmed.

    The thing is, I've seen you be oblivious about enough other things (I'd have to put you and Riva near the top of the "most oblivious members of the forum" list) that it wouldn't be completely out of the realm of possibility.

    You may want to check how much of what you're perceiving is merely projection.

    What you see as "attacking their status in the social hierarchy", perhaps I just see as stating it how it is.

    That being said, you seem to be working with a flawed premise that INTJs don't recognize/concern themselves with "social hierarchy".

    @Zarathustra - in my defense, I don't follow blogs and threads which discusses personal issues in which i'm unable to give useful advice. Those are the threads which usually gives infor of members. And since I usually keep away I tend to not know. It's not my inability to gather information and arrive at effective conclusions. But if I have seen/read I would seldom forget. I can give you a good example but to do so I have to take permission from you to quote a discussion we had on ventrilo which I shall pm if you want me to. Anyway does this mean I have/can gain credibility in your high ranking alpha eyes? Hmmm... or does that even matter I wonder! You didn't know that sal was morg...

    Three things:
    • Did I miss where, say, intelligence had a huge correlation with participation on MBTI forums and thus was actually worth discussing as a sidebar of the OP's question? Exactly how many threads have we had on intelligence and type on this forum? I prefer the discussion of the much more interesting initial question (but I'm not gonna dictate the direction of the thread, of course).
    • There are quite a few self- and other-typed ENTJs around here--or at least they're boisterous enough to make themselves seem prevalent
    • Online forums definitely have the capacity to help meet some targeted (or general) goal, and they have their advantages--the Internet contains a wealth and diversity of information that a 'live' social circle doesn't have ready access to. It may or may not be the best tool for some particular goal, but it's worth remembering that it's one tool of many that even very social folks might utilize.

    What sort of timeline are we talking about here? I want to exactly know how long I have to visit.

    No, Riva.

    Now you've shown yourself to not only be oblivious, but to also parrot false assumptions.

    Regarding the post you quoted of salome - Didn't you notice my reply post to her's was incomplete? It wasn't a statement made with the purpose to mock you. You are indeed a genius! Given the context of the scenario it is understandable you thought I was trying to mock you (though it was simply a question). But judging or mocking people when they are confused/lacks-knowledge isn't something I do and I wouldn't definitely hold it against them and assume they have horrible judgement.
