    Question Is it just me or...

    Do INTJs and ENTPs like to use other people as test subjects or lab rats. I do this alot when I am bored. Normally, I find it cruel, but then sometimes i need to test out my ideas on people and things.

    Yes. I'm just starting to be aware of the fact that I do that.

    Haha I must be a good test subject. Currently close friends with an ENTP and always close friends with INTJs.

    I have a lot of wonderful ENFPs in my life and I get along great with them, but there is just a certain line I never cross with them. I really get overwhelmed, stressed and flustered when face to face with that much Fe. So you guys are pretty much off the hook when it comes to being my lab rat.

    I treat people like lab rats all the time. I mean I am a loving lab rat mom but I study them endlessly. I onbserve, reshape, remold. It's my hobby.

    Can't say I do that. I play/mess with people in good humour but that's where it stops.

    I do that without realizing it. Only in the world of social engineering though.

    Maybe its an excuse- me telling myself that i just did what i did so i could gauge their reaction...it seems to make me look like the controlling figure when in reality what i did was somewhat 'wrong'


    edit: just like the teacher that says she was 'testing you' after you pointed out a mistake using the recently taught material.

    Give me an example of 'testing someone out'?

    I don't think I do that though.
    The people who aren't close to me don't matter enough to me to spend energy like that.
    And the people who are close to me... well I can just be honest with them and ask them the question I had in mind and know I'll get an honest answer. It's rather simple.

    I haven't noticed INTJs do this, but I have noticed it with ENTPs.

    Not INTJ or ENTP, but I do this, and sometimes only realize that I'm doing it after the testing is well underway or I get a bad reaction.
