just curious... in an argument who would be most likely to win? xntj or xntp? and what would be the most likely reason?
i was just wondering because my friend and i are in a debate right now but it seems like its never ending.
It depends on the individuals and the topic. If there is narrow focus on a highly structured topic that the INTJ happens to specialize in, then the INTJ might win. If it's of much broader scope and if the topic is less structured then the INTP might do better. INTJs might be better a focing a point across. INTP might just lose out of boredom.
I didn't see the Xs. ENTJs force the point across. ENTPs force the point across with sweet talk and lots of BS.
Depending upon subject I'd reckon the J would win if it were a concrete "factual" subject and the P if it were an argument relating to more "flexible" matters like philosophy.
(This is assuming that all other factors like smarts, age and so forth are equal.)
INTP - tries to prove his/her theory is right.
annoyed - because your points don't connect the dots.
ENTJ - tries to prove that he/she is right.
annoyed - because you tried to prove that HE is wrong.
INTJ - proves what you said is stupid and make you feel stupid
annoyed -because you just said something stupid.
ENTP -plays on your words. not on the argument. one wrong word in an argument and an ENTP will destroy you. this is actually a characteristic trait. Witty
annoyed -they don't get annoyed because they were not arguing in the 1st place.
I think we all have experiences where an argument or debate ensues and both parties walk away believing they were the true victor. So how about we assume normal human biases in perceiving debate winners? Yes this is going to overcomplicate it if anyone plays, but we all love overcomplicating things. ASSUMPTION!
Using four perception directions...
1) the _____ type in the debate
2) the other _____ type in the debate
3) an objective observer
4) a subjective observer
ROUND ONE: ENTJ VS INTP
If they debated, who would have won through different perceptions? Could we judge a true winner from these?
