    Default NFs, what bothers you the most about INTPs?

    It seems like NF's and INTPs sometimes have differing takes on the world. What things bother NF's the most, I wonder?

    It's not public, so the INTP mafia will not hunt you down and troll you.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11

    A few of them nitpick over the most pointless crap to appear "smarter". The nitpicking can be warranted in many contexts but not in all. I have noticed that it's usually the insecure that need to nitpick the most to prove "shit". But then, there are those who truly brilliant who like to enlighten others (in a good way... so the nitpicking is warranted... not in a "pissing contest" sort of way).

    EDIT: I mean if the "nitpicking" has a point or purpose, I don't mind it but if it's a glorified ego boost/mental masturbation, then I want to
    I am supposedly NFJ.

    Malicious intent and intentional harming of others, be it out of revenge or sheer boredom/curiosity/lack of empathy.

    Edit: let me be clear, this would be my answer for any type, as all have this capacity.

    Funny that's what bothers me too.

    You're not an NF. Don't tamper with the study!

    Great powers of understanding + lack of empathy can be a dangerous weapon if the INTP doesn't check themselves.

    That's why I said "funny."

    I've only ever met one that I'm pretty sure about, so this is just fwiw. It was my one professor, and though I generally liked him, sometimes his nitpicking got ridiculous. Sometimes he would be like "That sentence is too vague because this word could mean this or this or this . . ." and it's like, come on now, you don't actually think that person could have meant that obscure meaning?

    I've been married to an INTP for twenty-one years and he is my favorite person in the world. It can, at times, be difficult to get him to state a preference/make a decision and I think that has been the thing that has consistently irritated me the most over the years. Still, compared to almost everyone else I know, he's very easy to get along with and frequently entertaining.

    Other INTPs are all over the place, in terms or whether and how they bother me. Some are assholes, but I don't blame that on type. It's a choice. The ones who are not, I generally find quite charming.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    arrogance, and the idea that being super-logical is always the right way to approach a situation. which is related to arrogance, imo. more concern with being correct than right, if that makes any sense.
