    Default INTJs & social approval

    fear it? loathe it? enviously desire it? intimidatingly selective? passionate neutrality?
    cheers!

    Social approval, eh? Well, let's say it's a nice thing; but it depends for what and from who.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O

    The amount of attention I give to social approval depends on what it can be used for. In general, I'm also indifferent towards it.

    It's always nice to have at least a few people around who I can call friends. As for general approval by the masses, I don't care, unless, as Lethe said, it will get me somewhere else I want to go.

    Can I use social approval for anything? If it gets people to listen and stop doing stupid things, then it is important. If it helps people objectively, then it is important. If it helps me get a job, it's important. If it's used to get friends, -- then no no no. That robs from the genuine nature of friendship.

    Normally apathetic. I just move on if things seem to go weird. Not like there is one social group in the world.

    If it comes as a bonus from something done with complete disregard for it. Fine.

    I find it grotesque to be motivated by it.

    The intjs I have interacted with, again, fall towards two classes. Those more like you guys- i think I am up to about five of them-who are oblivious or indifferent and would be disgusted by pursueing it

    I am up to three of the other type and several more potentials who seem to need social recognition, not approval, via pedantic recitation of how knowledgable they are. Maybe this is an insecurity issue. Maybe a really overdeveloped TeSe way to try and deal with all the Ss?

    However the top group have mastered the gut busting drop dead stare.

    They expect and are slightly disappointed by my lack of comprehension, however will spare me the few moments needed to clarify the topic. At which point I flop on my back and ask them to rub my metophorical puppy belly. Everbody loves puppies.
