    The problem is there are INTJs who genuinely believe that stuff about other types. It's this kind of self-gratifying Nietzschean delusion of grandeur. It's not pretty!

    But looking at it as an ironic self-mockery via stereotyping your own type, it's very clever. You guys really enjoy the way it could be interpreted either way, don't you?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    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.
    Haha. Exactly. Sort of.

    Another clue to INTJ humor, especially in a forum such as this:

    If you really think you have him now. He just said something totally brain-dead stupid, and NOW you're gonna let him have it, with both barrels.

    Think again. He knows how stupid his statement was, so he's either trolling or making a joke.

    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.
    Indeed. Also, you've voiced some observations of INTJs that I think are probably true. At the same time, I like to give ENTPs shit for doing stuff like this: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...24-post32.html

    Indeed. But why? Is there a useful point to prove?

    In fact, it's the dual-meaning that pleases us.

    Most of my statements contain AT LEAST three meanings.

    Oh, and as for believing "that stuff about other types": we do actually believe... to an extent. We're just not stuck on it. It's understandable to say; it can often be true; but it's not necessarily true.

    What is necessarily true, however, is how fun it is to fuck with people's heads by playing around with those multiple potential meanings.

    And how impressed we can be when others are smart enough to play...

    It's called, "play."
