And that's probably an overstatement.
For what it's worth, INTJs think compliments are just cheap emotional appeals that have no basis in reality. So if an INTJ is actually complimenting you, it's passed the tertiary Fi value test. That means that the compliment actually has a solid basis in reality.
In general, we hate having words stand in place of reality, but we occasionally recognize the necessity of such arrangements.
The greatest compliment, far beyond anything we might say in words: if an INTJ spends time with you, that INTJ really loves and respects you. Our time is our most valuable commodity, and you can always use that as a barometer in the absence of vocal declarations.
