    (I can't take the credit for that last one; it belongs to this ENFP-bashing INTJ.)
    Actually, if I were an ENFP, I'd take it as a compliment that I've got a real life... as opposed to just sitting around and arguing about spoons.

    Within my spoon satire, the ENFP approach has a lot of merit.

    However, reducing the satire of INTJs to the quote 'There is no spoon' (which was the original context), the ENFP quote by contrast suddenly seems less loving - at least to my ear, but I could be biased because I *know* that the author's motivation was to knock ENFPs.

    ... I don't think I can top that.

    Except I think trying to "find ourselves" and help each other do so.. and realizing that we are all the same would lead to over analyzing projection and introjection and we'd all become psychologically paralyzed and finally insane believing that our entire collective conscience is the spoon that the INTJ planet is talking about.

    This reminds me that I find single-type communities really creepy.
    I once found a Live Journal place just for ENFPs, and oh my god, it was terrifying.

    That being said, I didn't really like INTPc either.
    It seems to me that single type gatherings breed a dangerous combination of arrogance and ignorance. It's like an isolation policy.
    A bunch of identical people just huddle around and affirm each other's beliefs, slowly distancing themselves from all other types.
    They also seem to have a tendency to bask in their own stereo-types for some reason.

    A world with only INTPs would be awful.

    Yeah, but then again, since they would all be INTPs, who would care?

    We're already living in a world where everyone is INTP. However we choose to cling to MBTI theory instead of examining the world to determine what it's really like.

    istp world-

    -no chick flicks would be made
    -oprah would not have a tv show, because nobody would listen to her advice, the same applies to "Dr." Phil
    -death rate would skyrocket since people would engage in dangerous activities without Js there to warn about the horrible consequences
    -Hallmark would go out of business
    -the term sympathy would only be used in the Rolling Stones song
    -we would have at least 500 channels of ESPN
    -alcohol consumption would rise
    -churches would be pretty empty
    -Walt Disney would make films like "The Little Assassin Who Could" and "Johnny Works on His Vintage Muscle Car"
    -there would be nobody left to intimidate

    this is just a small sample of what I'm imagining!

    Ho ho!
    I think you misunderstand INTPs. We're not completely apathetic.
    At least I'm certainly not.

    if you plotted to send out a secret agent to infiltrate or spy another planet type, what type would you like to spy/infiltrate on and what would be your reasons?
