    Now, I would be thankful of an analysis on what part of my pretty clear, direct statement fits the definition of backhanded. I leave those backhanded things to cowardly personal attackers. Do proceed.

    Now, baiting - I suppose this can be looked at subjectively. It is apparent that other people - NF people - managed to read the post without getting caught up in overwrought clumsy attempts to "strike back", but as we know, some fish are really easy to catch. Anything's bait.

    Nothing to do with magic, Ni in the dominant form is just a hat trick thats difficult to explain, nothing mystical about it.

    Anything you say about inferiority is something you brought up, in essence a projection of your own insecurity. If you are merely replying to my statement that said person way back in 3rd grade had a weak mind, well, he later turned out to be a drug addict. Wasnt hard to see that coming, he was stealing in 3rd grade.
    The NEED to come in and attempt to bait NFs or make backhanded comments about our perceived abilities in social situations displays this insecurity (like a crystal case).

    I know, and a complete shame, I am rather fond of INTPs specifically being inferior Ti. I have great respect for their ability to model shit in their heads with massive amounts of data and to extract the logical essence of it... I do that all the time, but my Ti is run over by Ni/Fe so it tends to focus more on people and emotions as opposed to logical constructs although I do attempt to do that too. I think that's what makes me so good at figuring out peoples motives etc. I dont see why there is a need for them to attack that as "magic" Its just hard to explain thats all...

    It's weird.. I figured some NTs would utilize some of the same social reading skills, albeit, more impersonally and without the F angle (generally speaking). This would apply to either Ni or Ne.. Even the types that don't really care about people.. I mean, there's a reason why some PUAs are Ti types -they can compensate for lack of S with Ne. And as for Ni, many ENTJs know how to mobilize others and see how they can make them "useful".

    Perhaps that's the E and the J talking in ENTJs. Those who have issues utilizing the social skills tend to be INTPs or INTJ(?).

    i figured i often read people too well, i mean, it's bad for me. because i usually see their deepest motives, some that they want to hide from themselves also, or some deepest issues that they avoid, like we all avoid them, i just cant stop it, i cant stop seeing through people... and then often i miss their beauty because i see them in negative light. not that it changes my perception of them, but i see their pain better than happiness, often.
    like with one Ennegram 3 girl I know... I see through her. she's not conscience about many stuff and issues, but I see them... this is why i cant talk with her for real... bc we keep missing each other points... bc like we are on different levels, stages in our lives, maybe?
    ... anyway.. i've been also guiltyy for not reading people well at all, i think this is common with NFs, too much reading into things so often we even miss point completely....

    @ Chloe I am with you, reading peoples motives is not always a blessing, it has cursed many of my relationships because I have a need for genuine-ness from people and I tend to pick people apart and find out what drives their interactions with me and if I find it less then noble I usually have a hard time opening up.

    Apparently, it's only OK if one of you guys says it though.
