It's simply never referenced or explained.

    And yet they continue to make efforts to include me in their lives, so I guess I must be doing something right. I just never have any concrete idea of where I stand with them.
    Sim, I could tell you all about it...

    Ironically this sort of unconscious bias as a result of built-in interpretation/taking one particular view of reality too seriously is precisely what Ni strives most to avoid. Poetic, no?

    I guess opinions like this are part of the reason INTJs keep such a close watch on what information they reveal.

    Careful with the arbitrary assignments of value to each functional attitude there, buddy.

    FWIW, Z is very much tongue-in-cheek, here. While we're clueless in matters of Fe, we are quite aware of what will start an argument with Te.

    Man, anybody ever tell you INTJs they have no idea when you're joking and when you're not? There's a very good reason for that, you know.

    Sure, let's hear it, but maybe let's move to wall posts before the whining about thread derailment has time to set in, hm?

    It's tongue-in-cheek apparently, but it's a bad sign for the tongue and the cheek when even other INTJs can't tell it's satirical.

    Actually not true...it's very visible when INTJs are joking...ENTPs on the other hand..

    Hint: when talking about their arrogance, unless they go into detail and elaborate why they are so great, pull their serious and constipated face from the pole stuck up their ass, they tend to be joking (though still somewhat believing what they're saying )

    It kinda works like SS's joke...grain of truth, but mostly very much meant tongue in cheek

    /oil on fire..

    Yeah, we lack the Fe. Our humor is very much along the lines of saying something almost, but not quite, true.

    The main clue is Z's initial sentence, about how easy it is to write off other types. As is often the case for INTJ-speak, all of the caveats that Ti/Fe demand are left unsaid. He isn't endorsing stereotypes of non-INTJs. Indeed, he is stereotyping how INTJs think.

    I guess we should go with the Ni answer on this one and agree that this is entirely up to perspective, so there's not much point in arguing it.

    I can get you front row tickets, honey, only $55.95 a pop. That's a bargain.

    btw, INTJs are offering some insight into how they think and evaluate the other Ne dom type, which seems pretty related to the OP's discussion of Ni's relationship with Ne. Or maybe my Ne is imagining relationships that aren't there.

    Usually not. But we can tell.

    And yes, we know. At some point though, we accept that not all others have access to Ni. (warning: the preceding sentence contained irony)

    Sounds good, but another time. I'm now looking at three hours of sleep.
