Anyone who's watching the UK show I'm a celebrity get me out of here, will know that one of the contestants is Martina Navratilova (who is an INTJ).
It's been quite interesting for me to watch how's she's behaving within the group. I feel that it mirrors my own behaviour in such a situation.
To begin with she stayed in the background, was polite to everyone and generally observed the other contestants.
However, now she appears to have been manipulated into becoming confrontational with one of the other celebrities. She seems to feel that one of the other camp members has behaved badly and that resources (i.e. sleeping on the bus) have been acquired unjustly. She is getting herself so angry that now she feels she has no alternative but to have an argument.
Other group members have commented how they wouldn't like to be on the wrong side of her.
However, the issue was not of her making, but it looks like she's the one that is going to deal with it.
I couldn't help thinking that I've been in this exact situation before and haven't realised it until it's too late.
So, my question to other INTJs is, have you ever been manipulated into taking on a cause? Are you aware of this kind of manipulation, if so, how do you deal with it? Which types do you think are best at manipulating us? And for anyone else watching the show, have you managed to type any of the other contestants?
