    Insensitivity, followed by arrogance. One instance in particular I recall is a female INTP trying to tell me she invalidated my feelings with her 'logic.' Which in itself is highly illogical, not that she could see it due to wanting to be 'right.'

    Also this. I had a male INTP friend who did that a lot. It got to the point where I had to cut off all contact with him because I could not tolerate all the utterly warrantless put downs and denigration of my beliefs when I had never done any of that to him, I treated him quite the opposite, with respect and acceptance, not judging him based on the things we did not agree on. In spite of how much I enjoyed talking to him about our common interests, I will not keep myself exposed to such toxicity. It really drags me down emotionally.

    Wouldn't this depend on the type of NF?

    I generally like INTPs -- I usually get where they are coming from. My dad's INTP -- so they're like family or something

    I voted "other", so I'll explain. Other than the INTPs here at TypoC, I've known two definite INTPs irl. The biggest problem I had with both of them was keeping up with what they were saying. One spewed out ideas so fast, that two hours later I would realize what he had been talking about.

    Personally, I didn't see any of the other listed choices in the INTPs I knew. Well, okay, maybe immaturity in one, but that was because she and I were both in high school and we were immature, so I don't think that counts.

    ETA: In case it was unclear, I really liked both of the INTPs I knew. They were witty, playful and talented. Though they both had human failings, those were far outweighed by their strengths.

    ^ Yes, this. I voted arrogance. Specifically it's in assuming the subjective preference to be the best for everyone because it's "correct". Plus sometimes there's some weird kind of inferior Fe connection with the Ti-calculated answer being the best for the group but not realizing that each individual might have a preference that makes the "best" answer not very good in practice.

    My point is then that it makes more sense to ask particular types for their opinions.

    Nitpicking is right... an INTP with a heavyhanded Ti would be arguing semantics in language. They are so focused on fixing inconsistencies that I think they deviate themselves from the general picture.
