I agree with Heart. I had a similar experience in my childhood, and still have this happen to me today. I don't understand why we have to respect their intelligence (and I so do, I find it very appealing) when they cannot respect or see the value in what we bring to the table.
Its interesting that an NT is supposedly good at the logic part and at the emotions part (as they don't let those out of their cage and therefore think they have better control over them).
Its also interesting to see what kinda mess some turn out to be when they encounter that big problem in life called 'LOVE' as you cannot reason your way out of this one. Some avoid it, others get hopelessly stuck and come out resenting love all together and become avoiders and some are lucky enough to fall for someone who will gladly help them out and actually has the necessary skills.
This all being said, this is a minority and the balanced ones are able to see the value we bring and appreciate us for it, as well as able to not fully repress their own feelings and value them which often makes them quite capable at the big thing called Love or quite adorable as they know they need help and will ask. And that is much appreciated
they think they understand everything when at the end of the day they are the most socially inept group of them all. surely that's a sign.
Because all feelers know they are at the mercy of their passions.
In the words of Anatole France, life is a tragedy for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think. (paraphrasing)
What this NT is demonstrating is his ineptitude to realize that comedy and tragedy are in actuality the same thing. This is what an NT said to me once when I myself made mention of that quote. He also said there are advantages to having feelings outright when I myself stated be glad your not emotional. If that isn't a parlance I don't know what is. It was very forthright and to the point.
I generally feel very safe and secure around an NT.
Whenever I'm around an ENTP I feel like an inferior human being due to the fact that they like to debate, and usually sound correct whenever they argue back. Their style of joking around from what I've seen of the type IRL and online also very much gets under my skin. Otherwise NTs don't really get under my skin, I guess I need to get some tougher skin for ENTPs.

I'd like to know the reason behind liking pushing people's buttons? This seems to be what I observe in the ENTPs I have debated with, they know exactly what to say to get an emotional response out of someone, how to strike someone deep.
