    Haha, well, that's one of your first items

    Unless I'm thinking in "results-driven" mode, like most people seem to prefer, nobody can get a straight answer out of me. I can babble on about a topic for hours, beating around the bush until it's a brand new work of art, until my audience either ignores me or rushes me to the point.

    INTPs when they have a position of power over me.

    Otherwise they're just a nuisance.

    I think a lot of the INTP/ESFJ clash is just a personality clash thing. We INTPs care about what we care about, we don't like to be told what to do, we hate passive aggressive "signals", we don't like being told that something's our duty, we don't like being scolded about not keeping in touch enough or not having an opinion on things that we don't care about. I think a lot of it comes down to the fact that we like to conserve energy, and use the energy we have for thinking about the stuff that interests us. I can see where any of this would be highly annoying to opposite personality types, just as their insistence on their way being right is annoying to us.

    I think that people who are really invested in Serious Societal Issues probably get frustrated with me, because I can seem apathetic. There are lots of issues I can see from all sides, so I don't have a big opinion one way or the other. Other things, I might have an opinion, but I see it as pointless to spend time and energy debating something when neither of us will change our minds at the end.

    I think those who have a REALLY strong J and like to motivate others will HATE INTPs, because we hate to feel like we're someone's pawn or that we've lost our autonomy. That's when you see our stubborn side come out, and it's more a product of the chemistry of two clashing personality types than just an INTP thing itself. The INTP in question might be perfectly cooperative with someone who's more respectful of his/her autonomy.

    Hey, that's totally me as well! When I was in college, my professor told me that my work was the first paper she had ever gotten that was grammatically flawless, perfectly structured, was easy to read, BUT

    didn't have a thesis. Muahahhahaha

    This makes sense, but I don't really feel as if ESFJs are particularly passive-aggressive. More like aggressive-aggressive and outspoken.

    This language is loaded in a pro-INTP way. You make it sound as if the onus should be on the non-INTP to be "more respectful," rather than on the INTP being "cooperative." I find it interesting that you use the word "autonomy" as much as you do, as well. How often is the loss of autonomy really an issue? You certainly do NOT lose autonomy in life simply because someone else says you should do something.
