    (omg this is hard to do - yes usual disclaimers, not the cool NTs)... cos they *have* to be right, if they're not right their entire world comes tumbling down, lol. I offhandedly remarked to an NT friend that he was right about something, we weren't even arguing any point... gawd he started salivating over it, "yeah, just tell me I'm right, that's what I like to hear".

    Also, they do have feelings, they're just so uncomfortable with them... we all know this (feeling deficit or not), which leads to drama, NT style!

    *sigh* I feel bad pointing out their obvious flaws, but sometimes I wonder if they even see it (another flaw haha ).

    Mostly by their apparent assumption that, in any disagreement with them, you are wrong by default unless another sufficiently reputable NT agrees with you. If that happens, it's the other NT who's correct, not you. Assuming the initial NT is willing to admit to being wrong. Which is often a generous assumption. It isn't so overt here as at INTPc though, which is a large chunk of why I rarely post there these days.

    Awww I kinda like NTs.

    What I can't stand are obnoxious little brats with huge apple trees stuck up their butts, and they can be seen across all types. As long as they keep to themselves, that's fine. If they start attacking *me* though then --->.

    Wow, spot fuckin' on.



    And here I thought I was the only one who's actually recognized this ghastly and prickish NT pattern of behavior.

    Gee, this thread sure is therapeutic!!!

    ^I think it's funny that they don't seem to see it. They're pretty lucky that NFs generally don't mess with their heads.

    One tendency that aggravates the hell out of me is the propensity for the maladjusted and/or unbalanced NT with huge Fi or whatever the hell it is to just flipping call you a retard if you don't agree with them.

    Yes, I know my intelligence is average.

    Yes, I know a rock can reason better than I can.

    Can we move on now?

    And if you bring up any kind of argumentation other than pure analysis devoid of any kind emotional attachment, they start addressing the emotion rather than the topic at hand. Stay on course; stay on target and don't let yourself get distracted by my emotion.

    The problem is that they totally dismiss anything, no matter how correct the premise may be, if it's founded on the 'wrong' base. Anyway, don't they know that judging a base as right or wrong IS FEELING BASED??? Dumbasses.

    This is particularly common with INTJs, whose tertiary Fi just give them enough of this judgment crap to totally stomp out anything that does not agree with their viewpoint.

    Oh, and certain NTs who just piss me off.

    But the rest of them are sensible and I really like them a lot. When they respect my feelings, I value their rational abilities, and we can complement each other instead of driving each other crazy. This is the great benefit of *balanced*, *healthy* NTs and not those with no purpose or no sense who are just negative and consider a day of not being a royal pain in the butt a day neglected. By the way, that accounts for 99% of NTs, so I still think you are all really awesome.

    Yep. Although it appears that CC is on a mission to corrupt all well-mannered NFs, so perhaps their luck has finally run out?
