    Yep. Guilty of these. Evidence of this, especially in poetry, below:

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    you're 11 your parents are conservative christians who forbid you from having sex before marriage and they're giving you "the talk" about sex. you argue that their are different sizes of penises and vaginas and that you would need to have sex first to know if you would "fit" well together. your parents tell you you're crazy but you remain unswayed until you eventually compromise, telling them that you agree not to have sex, but that you insist on measuring the diameter and depth of the woman's vagina and preferably inserting a mold of your penis into it to make sure that the 2 of you will have a good fit for when you get married and and do have sex

    You know you're an intj when..
    An infp tells you everything happens for a deeper reason trying to tell you they like you but you turn it into a whole scientific argument

    I'm thinking maybe you know you're an INTJ when you wish to forego the small talk, preliminaries, the hoopla, dog and pony shows and get on with the project. And believe me, I consider that a compliment, not a put-down. I admire people who cut to the chase and get on with it...whatever it happens to be.

    I would argue with that as well. "Everything happens for a reason" is a major fallacy in itself.

    Um...do you have proof? How can you be sure? Is that an opinion or a fact? Certainly, in nature, nothing happens in and of itself without affecting other mechanisms and systems, so how can you be sure that is a fallacy? Just asking. Sounds awfully INFPish...to me I'll believe you if you can give me valid proof, otherwise, I'll consider it an opinion and be okay with it. haha. I just saw your signature and had to say something. Hope you don't mind a little good natured "funning around."

    I argued that of course everything happens for a reason because cause and effect but the deeper meaning thing is invalid to state as a fact because its a matter of opinion that seems to be believed because of someone's emotions and imagination and not so much on precise evidence or proof

    Most likely true. It's usually that everything happens and humanity projects a reason onto it. It's how we cope with our existence.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    People want there to be a reason for everything so that they don't have to pin the blame for their mistakes and feel bad for themselves. It takes off the responsibilities for their own actions that most people are unconsciously scared of. Take a break up for example. They will feel terrible, but might think to themselves 'I guess it just wasn't meant to be' or something similar. It's the same principle that keeps the concept of a God alive.
