I am interested in what others have to say about this.
I can say that I have real problem when it comes to acting spontaneously. So FPs could be a little bit disturbed by this post.
On MBTI tests in many occasions I have scored 100% J and if it is not that strong it is still above 80%. I can score in all four letters above 80% just by giving the correct information.
So the fact that I am also very I, N and T makes thing even more drastic.
Even if situation comes out of nowhere I will need only few seconds to create a plan.
I am so J that I don't communicate normally with other people. Before I start a conversation I scan the possible outcomes and arguments of the other person so when the conversation actually happens I am shooting arguments faster than they come out of other person.
But the other person takes this kind of attitude as personal insult so I don't do that often.
I always think before I say something and search the data bank of what I have already said. Plus is it in contradiction with what I am going to say.
Also I say little so I can remember what I have said for a few days.
In many situations I have managed to swing small situations in my favor just because I was ready and the other person was not even thinking that I had a plan for that situation. So he/she agrees with me without resisting.
I mean those are some small things, who would plan for something like this?
If I know that I will end up in some social situation I prepare few jokes so I will have something nice to say.
People also don't want to play video games with me because
QUOTE: You are machine set to win, so playing games with you is a complete waste of time.
I have plans for what I will do in incoming years. But when it comes to long range planning I am trying to create flexible plans. Because off obvious reasons.
When I am going in "uncharted territory" I try to inform myself more about the place or rules of that place so that I could develop plans or standard policy. Which is very useful if things repeat pretty much all the time.
Also this entire psycho image is more or less carefully planned image to hide my calculated and impersonal nature.
Plus it can show me as more F than I actually am. Or it can be used as entertainment when you are stuck with other person. If you are not too brutal, this can work just fine.
When it comes to science and experiments I am not totally J but again I am doing them for my future goals not for the sake of curiosity.
There is a degree of curiosity but it is far from dominant
When I take some online tests I have huge problems with them.
For example let say there is a question like:
Your relations with person X turned out bad. What will you do?
Then I start thinking like: Do I need this person in my life? Do I need the skills of that person for something? Am I close to that person? ............
So I always click options more or less as I wish because I can't decide anything on so little information.
I can be described as the total opposite of warm and fuzzy or wild and crazy.
For me it is impossible to fit in at the party because I so firm all the time.
Some time ago one INFP woman on INTJf asked how to be more organized and J. Her reaction on my reply was something like "You are joking , right ?"
I would not be surprised if she is here under a different name.
There are more examples but I think this is enough too provide good picture.
Can it be that I calculate so much because that is the only way for me to fit into the society at least to some level ?
And I must fit to get some kind of bonus which I need for future progress.
It is not that I have social anxiety.
Actally I would do much better in many social situations if my social anxiety was higher.
It is just that since kindergarten I am not compatible.
And since I was 5 I think that T>F.
Also one more question what do you people think about sentence:
I have calculated the possibilities.
From my experience it scares some people and I think I know why but I want to hear what others think about it.
