    the only thing i can think of is applying logic where logic can't be applied (yes, its possible just like applying emotions to something logical...its just...ehh). or getting stuck in their own little logical systems and not being able to apply those systems to the real world.

    now that i said that, i can understand why they do that and it generally doesn't bother me.

    I hold a handful of NTs very close in my heart and tend to see the best in them as a rule. They are healthy, mature, caring individuals who love and support me. I admire them and wish I were more like them in many ways. They are all four NT types, and include family members, loved ones, and dear friends.

    One thing that disturbs me about them, however, is the way that they often seem so disconnected from others. (I'm speaking of the ones I know in person, not the online NTs. I think there's a larger population of misanthropic angsty teenage NTs online and it's unfair to judge all of them by those who post "loudest".) Even the healthy, mature ones I know seem to feel very few deep ties and emotional obligations to others. They appear to me to lack a sense of significant connection to other people. I'm not sure I'm explaining this right.

    I feel as though unbreakable bonds connect me to other people: to my family, my heritage, my loved ones. I exist primarily in relationships--even relationships with my dogs. I value and honor these relationships, and will go to great lengths to preserve them even when they feel restricting or annoy me.

    All the NTs I know lack this feeling. They love people and honor relationships, but it's different somehow. I think they primarily see themselves as individuals. Maybe, to them, the relationship is there to serve the individuals instead of the individuals there to serve the relationship? (I'm not sure if that's right.) To me, they seem to lead lonely existences because at the heart of it all, they are alone. In a way I admire this because they are free from obligations placed on them by others. Sometimes I wish I could be as free. At the same time, it bothers me because it appears cold and lonely and empty--and sometimes even unkind and heartless--to refuse to accept these obligations.

    The fact that they lack these certain types of connections worries me and makes me very uncomfortable. I know that I am bound to these NTs with something that goes far beyond my own choice. But they are only bound to me by choice. Occasionally they do things which demonstrate that they could change that choice without damaging themselves too seriously, and then where would I be? I have placed them in the center of my heart and allowed their existence to change my own, but I sense that the primary thing at the center of their hearts is a room of ideas, thoughts, theories, and values.

    I learned from the last time I started a raucous!!!! I figured if I did that again, someone might just set my ass on fire.

    Besides, I really like the good NTs. Bad NTs blow hot steam out of their asses, but the others are really awesome. No different from any other folks.

    I mean think about it. SJs with a 2 x 4 up their ass is a totally INTOLERABLE thing (think German civil servant - ughhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! Or asshole who takes 20 minutes to butter a slice of bread or OCD or follows orders like a fart). Or an SP party freak weird fart who gets married five billion times or can't keep it in their pants (think Madonna). Or NFs (holy crap in a hand basket) who can manipulate and control because their just as much in control of their emotions as they are of everyone else's and use it to their advantage to undermine people. Ehhh, all types are totally MESSED UP if they are maladjusted. NTs are no exception - they might be cool and shit, but they sure as shooting aren't perfect.
