    Default Why are NTs individualists?

    I realised the other day that one that factors that motivates me loads is how i have this huge need to be different! The strange thing is I can't figure out why so i wanted to see if anyone here has any idea why NTs in general feel the need to different?

    Whould you stop lookin up at me. Specially with a maze designed shirt. Please.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    i see a contradiction in being an individualist and a longing to be 'different'. if you're truly an individual, then you'd be yourself whether it was different from others or not.

    I know what you mean! I cut my hair into a mullet to be different from my piers. I get irritated on how people like to follow trends and focus on little details. I want to be different because I don't want to be like the others, and believe me I'll go out of my way just to not blend in.

    hm interesting point! I am individual but for some reason i want to break the social norms for the hell of it just to be different anyway. No idea why though which is what i'm trying to figure out!
