    Anja I agree with you, NTs have the bad habit of only seeing half the picture. If you bring up the other half, they often try desperately to avoid it, dismiss it, or shut down the discussion altogether.

    Or maybe they figure they'll just leave all that nonsense up to the people that already grasp it better and stick to what they're good at? .. I get that sort of mindset occasionally.

    But my question, then becomes - "So, if you love knowledge so much, why aren't you interested in finding out more about something you don't understand?"

    There's so much of that intense need to prove they are "right." And discomfort with ambiguity.

    Well, yeah. That's how it is.

    So why does that disturb me so much?

    Honestly, I wish I were more thinking. I could easily and readily accept things for the way they are, instead of getting this idealistic glimmer in my eye. I'm the sort of person that someone says "We need to move this." and I move it without ever realizing it's 3 times my size. In the negative side of things.. When something isn't the way I want it to be, I can be rather selfish and offended by it because my emotions tell me that that isn't right... instead of merely taking a neutral stance.

    In the end, I wouldn't be as fiery and upbeat with a T... but I would be more managable and easier to deal with.

    I've had to work quite a bit on acceptance and still have a lot of work in that area. But it does give me peace of mind.

    It seems in some ways that Tees have it easier because once they decide what is correct they're home free.

    That's true, you have to be willing to accept yourself. Thats a major key to life.

    Heck I used to beat myself up for not being as skillful in terms of analyizing certain topics in the way that many Ts(especially INTPs) are able to. These thoughts still creep up, but now I accept the fact that I have my own unqiue INFJ way of approaching issues effecting the world.

    And others, too, Peguy. And situations.

    That doesn't mean liking it or not trying to change it. But ultimately developing a sense of reality, that, in the moment, things and people are what they are. That is soothing to me.

    Common parlance would put it:

    Suck it up!
