    Now your mixing intelligence with gifted. Intelligence is a form of being gifted, why INTJs feel that it is above other forms is

    Isn't the definition of "useful skill" simply a function of transient cultural standards?

    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    Good thing you showed up to say something totally irrelevant (and that I and everyone else could care less about)!

    Okay I don't have any empirical evidence to back that up, but Myers Briggs and intelligence isn't that objective anyway.And if it is, well...I am too lazy and stupid to realize. Both options seem very possible to me.

    Relative to to the average person, INTJ's prefer to use functions that are considered by our society (rightfully or wrongly) to be used in higher order processing. If you look at those dinky lists of famous people by type, under INTJ you will find a list of great thinkers.

    Call intelligence what you want, but if I needed someone to write a philosophical treatise, work on my computer or to proofread my paper and the only information I had on the candidates were their Myers Briggs Type, I would choose the INTJ over almost any other type (maybe an INTP because they might be more flexible or an INFJ because they are fuzzier). I am not saying I would have made the right choice, but that's where I would place my bets. If I wanted an interpretive dancer, a folk singer or a shoulder to cry on, I probably wouldn't pick an INTJ.

    I am not saying I like INTJ's better than other types (I have like two NT friends in the world and we don't always get along). But in the great pantheon of historical figures, there are a lot of philosophers and not so many dancers. Just sayin'. They are probably thinking something smart up there in their brains.

    Welcome!

    Thank you, it means a lot coming from someone who makes a lot of well thought-out posts

    I like your username too, it reminds me of all the brain hemorrhages Nietzsche has caused me.
