Also can you help me sort this out. I am in sceince so stumble across a fair number of INTJs.
they seem to come in two or maybe three flavors.
1. The excessively pedantic ones-to the point of almost being OCD like. They will talk, and talk, and talk at you in a lecture like fashion as if they have to dump everything out of thier brain. Most folks can't handle one on one for very long as there is no escape route. I totally fall into ENFP mode, flake out, giggle and wonder out of the room in the middle of the conversation. They are really INTJ like otherwise.
2. The silent, broody type-I do love these folks as these ones are so full of intense, yet silent passion and opinion. The set such large hurdles for themselves and are the ultimate, non stop strivers. On the surface they have been descirbed as ice princesses.
3. I have seen one or two much more assertive dominant INTJs. Not sure if this is a subtype of two with more testosterone or what.
So any idea about the diff between 1 and 2?
From my experience 1. and 2. are the same person, but the INTJ will act more like 1. if they feel comfortable around you and 2. otherwise.

I like being vague, because it encourages questions/answers that you would never expect from others.
Same, I say downright weird shit sometimes (first one to make something genuinely witty out of that gets a prize) - when it comes to me as a natural "epiphany" of meaning or connection, I just say it...often I will throw stuff out there and no one will return anything, though. I've found that Ni doms and Ne doms are good at bouncing stuff back (or people that have good perception functions in general, N especially prolly). I guess the others need more time to think things through. I can reformulate/come to a new idea midsentence and change my overall idea completely while talking ...I'm always amazed at where such make-shift replies lead me.

Can't bear the silence after a prof asks a question and the students just refuse to say anything.
One time this happened to me in class, I waited like 2 minutes and then forced my hand up. I would've answered earlier, but I didn't think I had to, seeing as the question had been like, just asking for a definition of communism. Apparently either no one else in that class knew (shudder) or no one had the balls to say it, which is also equally as absurd.
