For sometime I am thinking about opening this thread and then one reply sparked my attention.
So I am creating a thread about NTJ skills that people usually dislike or don't understand and things that shouldn't be shown to others simply because people could have problems with this way of thinking.
There is a lot of jokes and joking that we are trying to take over the world.
But I am interested in how much that stereotype is actually true.
Others types can comment.
To answer the question above. Yes I can see myself in that kinds of a positions. If I am good at something I am good at large scale menagment .
I am playing strategy video games of many kinds from since I am 7. I started to experiment with chess even before that.
But I never stoped playing this kinds of games and I am still playing them. People can say what they want but this kinds of things are in my blood.
At the age of 12 I was already capable to beat my father anyway I wanted and it was completly normal that everbody else are playing united against me. What surely left psychological consequences since I am used that I have coalition against me and the only one I can trully trust is me.
I know that I am talking about video games here but the psychology is still there. Once I played one RTS 4vs4 and others let me to do the big picture thinking. But one of my allies fall into trouble so the other two wanted to help him(and he trully needed all help he can get). But I said no to that idea because it was pure madness from strategic perspective.
In the end we won but there was some hard feelings because of "betrayal". But we managed to work things out.
Also this was't the only case when things like this that happened.
If someone wants this in more detail I can explain what I did in that game.
We are talking about Starcraft here.
Probably the main reason why I managed to progress and live quite introverted life at the same time is because of something I call
"The spokesman strategy"
I have found that I don't have too much communication problems with ENTPs and ESTPs it I don't want to have them.
ENTPs like knowledge so they like me plus they know people. ESTPs like to have someone like me in their circle plus they know a lot of people.
So when I notice that that we have common goals I ask them if they can ask other people for more information. Because of this I don't need to have too many conntacts, just a few people who understand me.
So I can get many things I need without becoming close with that many people. However this does not mean that I don't have respect for people that make my life so much easier.
However I admit that in many cases when I look at people I don't look only in light what I think about the person. But in a light for what this person is actually capable.
Also I have conflicts with my familily because they are too relaxed, spontaneous and playful. (we don't hate eachother).
But there are situations when I am the parent and I have large problems in life because they are disorganised people.
I am at my best when I kill as much spontaneity as possible. To me there are only two options, planning and planning not to plan. Since sometimes it is better just to play a long and adapt.
Being totally spontaneous is not my call.
I have noticed that people know that they can't stand against me in some conversations from the perspective of logic so they they use
"Because I feel like it!" as answer and I can tell that they enjoy doing it.
Many people think that I am too serious so they are trying to turn things into a joke since they think I should laugh more.
Does this sounds familiar? Probably some other types will be able to relate.
It happens that people watch movies and it is not unusual that a bad guy is evil masternind. But people remember what they have watched and they project it on me. In real life there are people that think that I some kind of future megalomaniac in the process of creation.
Does this happens to other NTJs as well?
One the other hand this makes my job to "sell" myself in social situations much easier.
I say megalomanic because I pay attention to geopolitical events and other global issues. What is somewhat unusual in my culture.
Also I can name all countries of the world with the exception of some tiny island states. But I also know their sizes, positions and many other characteristics.
So I like to make my own models of future.
I could say more but this is getting to long.
One more thing. How would you rate this video?
I am not interested in particular nations or ideology here, but in something that could be called artistic impression.
The main reason why I am posting this, is because I am curious about how many will recognize the song.
