    Yes, I watch both of those shows. There, you have seen my inner geek. By the way, Tony Stark (INTJ) up there and I are very good friends. Whenever a theory comes up that interests one of us but is provocative to the other (T vs F stuff) we can't wait to run and tell the other one.

    Strange friendships INFJs & INTJs I am certain the stangeness is inherit to the awesomeness.

    I don't bother reading all the posts.
    The OP might be right in the sense that Fs are more likely to be more socially intelligent. According to Daniel Goleman social intelligence has a lot to do with the ability to empathize with others.

    by the way, I'm in total awe of what INTJs can do...but I like messing with them too...so let's just go crazy with this until one of the NT sees us...then it will be on...


    For the sake of the thread, I'll assume you're right: Fs have bigger brains.

    But apparently Ts have less self-esteem problems. : D

    I don't think either are necessarilly true. But it sounds funny so I may repeat it, if you don't mind.

    I don't understand the idea that thinking functions would be smarter anyway. I really don't think either is "smarter" because there are so many different forms of intelligence. Each function is like a form of intelligence in itself...

    Yeah. If intelligence has to do with T or F, wouldn't this make perceiving doms less smart, because their 'intelligence' isn't so inherent to them?

    how does all of this pertain to the real world? what is the point you are trying to make. you may have posted it a couple pages back but i don't feel like going through and finding it. I'm just curious.
